Very good hotel with an excellent location. The location of this hotel is in walking distance to a lot of attractions ( Intrepid Museum, Broadway, Madison Square garden, Madame Tussauds, Empire state Building and so on). The staff at the front desk is helpfull and friendly. There is still security near the front desk and we had no bad experience according to location and homeless people. We had no issues with elevators, sometimes we had to wait couple of minutes but nothing horrible. The room size was adequate, with nice and clean bathroom and comfortable beds and pillows. The room service was provided every day and generally the cleaning level was very high. We had also higher floor with city view and it was amazing, also good according to street noise. |Regarding to our stay I could only recommend this hotel to anybody who is planning to visit NY.

We went to NY for a holiday trip. Last year we stayed at the Even Hotel (another IHG property) in Times Square South. That hotel was not available on our dates this year and I was initially disappointed, but Holiday Inn Times Square was wonderful. Staff was professional and welcomed us warmly. I had read in the reviews that the elevator could be busy at times, but we only had slight issues on the way down. Otherwise, the waits were totally doable. Room was compact, but that is to be expected in the city—and it was very clean, beds comfortable and the city view was lovely. After 11pm, a room key is required to enter the lobby and a room key is required for the elevator as well so the location felt safe. Close to subway station and walking distance to many landmarks. Definitely recommend!
