The hotel has 124 guest rooms and just three suites, which have a separate living room, king bed and pull-out sofa, microwave and mini-fridge. Guest rooms have either two double beds or a king bed. Rollaway beds cost an additional $25 per night and only fit in the king-bed rooms, as the double-bed rooms don't have enough empty space. Rooms are tight.
Standard guest rooms include a hairdryer and a coffeemaker; you can rent a mini-fridge for $50 a night, on request. Note that some rooms at the Holiday Inn Express are smoking; request a non-smoking room if you don't want to be subjected to any lingering cigarette-smoke smell. Families will love that room rates also include breakfast and free in-room wireless.
This hotel is a bunch of con artists. I booked a room with them when I arrived at the hotel they told me there was a mistake with booking all the rooms were booked because the U.N was in town. The man at the desk told me dont worry he will take care of the charge on my bank card for booking the room. My card was charged $203 the next few days I called the hotel about the reversal of the room charge that I never stayed at because they said a room wasn't available. The supervisor said I never showed up and I wasn't able to get my refund. This hotel has a bunch of thieves working there and liars. I definitely dont recommend this hotel and if you find yourself staying there please make sure to get everyones name and print outs of your bill and if they say they will refund your card for a charge or deposit ask for it in writing.
Excellent location... Great value...light breakfast included adding even more to the value.. Clean room, updated.. Would stay again..
Just around corner of 5th Ave and 45... Very close to great tourist spots in midtown
Don't expect a game room, swimming pool, or kids' club at the Holiday Inn Express Fifth Avenue. This is a basic, budget property (for New York anyway) with few frills. That said, it's also relatively new. Built in 2005, it's clean and has all the basic amenities.
The hotel is within easy walking distance of Rockefeller Center, Fifth Avenue shopping, Radio City Music Hall, Grand Central Station, Bryant Park, the New York Public Library, St. Patrick's Cathedral and many other kid-friendly sights.
The free on-site Express Start Breakfast Bar is a boon for families. Fuel your busy day of sightseeing with scrambled eggs, omelets, bacon, sausage and biscuits, as well as fruit, yogurt, cereal, bananas and cinnamon rolls. To-go breakfast bags are also available.
Otherwise, there are no on-site restaurants. Morton's Steak House and the Manhattan CafÃ©, with an upscale salad bar and international buffet, are less than a block away.
