Editor’s Review of Holiday Inn Manhattan-Financial District

It's a rare treat to find a brand new hotel in Manhattan, and rarer still to find one that holds a world record. The Holiday Inn in the financial district, which opened in October 2014, is the world's tallest Holiday Inn. It was built from the ground up where a parking garage used to be, and stands more than 453 feet tall, with 50 floors. Naturally, the upper floors offer outstanding city views, including the Hudson River on the side facing New Jersey, and the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial reflecting pools on the side facing uptown.

This property is downtown, in the area known as the financial district, which includes Wall Street, so expect a mix of business and leisure guests. From here, it's easy to get to the Statue of Liberty and the
... more 9/11 Memorial and Museum.

As a home base for city exploration, this is a good choice. It's not in the middle of noisy midtown, but rather on a quiet side street on the lower west side. What makes this property workable, if you plan to visit uptown attractions, is its proximity to the Rector Street subway station on the 1-line, which is an easy route to stations at Times Square and Columbus Circle.

The interiors are stylish and modern, with a few Asian décor touches. The rooms share this same look, but are very compact. In fact, while you can (snugly) fit a crib in the standard rooms, rollaway beds aren't even available. If you need a lot of space or have a large family, you may want to consider getting a suite or two adjoining rooms. less

When reserving your room, keep two things in mind. There are 492 rooms in this hotel, on 50 floors, all served by three elevators. To avoid a potentially long wait for an elevator, request a lower floor so you can use the stairwell. Also, some floors have showers instead of bathtubs. If your child takes baths, request a room with a tub.

Cribs are available at no charge. Rollaway beds are not available as the rooms are too small to accommodate them. Accessible rooms are available, as are adjoining rooms, which connect two rooms with king beds. The rooms do not have mini-fridges or microwaves, though a limited number are available for rent at the rate of $20 per stay.

Standard Rooms
Standard room types either have one king bed, one queen bed, or two double beds. All rooms are non-smoking, and have an in-room safe, coffeemaker, hair dryer, iron, and free wired and wireless high-speed Internet. The 39-inch premium TV gets more than 80 channels, including Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and ABC Family. The ability to block channels on the TV is available by calling the front desk.

Two-room suites feature one bedroom and a separate living room with a sofa bed, in addition to all standard room amenities.

Executive Club Level
The standard rooms and suites on the upper floors from 35 to 50 are considered Executive Club Level. You'll pay a premium, mainly for the views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, 9/11 Memorial and the New Jersey skyline. These rooms receive a free morning newspaper delivery, and have all the standard amenities.
