This Holiday Inn on the border between SoHo and Little Italy offers excellent value for this hip downtown location. It delivers on all of the expected staples of the brand, and rooms feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and free Wi-Fi. Business and fitness centers, while small, are open 24 hours daily. There is free coffee and tea in the lobby, as well as free newspapers delivered daily to rooms. There is a large meeting and event space available, which may appeal to business travelers, and the on-site restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. This is a solid mid-range option for the area, but it may be worth comparing rates with the nearby -- and perhaps slightly more stylish -- Wyndham Garden Chinatown.
