This Holiday Inn on Manhattan’s Lower East Side delivers all of the brand staples, as well as streamlined, contemporary -- and even stylish -- design. Spacious rooms feature free Wi-Fi and modern bathrooms; some have excellent views of the Downtown Manhattan and the Freedom Tower. The location is within walking distance of trendy restaurants, the famous Katz's Deli, and five subway lines. On-site features include a business center, meeting space, small fitness center, and an outdoor courtyard. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner, but not lunch, and serves burgers and brews in a kitschy, 50s-inspired atmosphere. Overall, the Holiday Inn is one of the best deals on the Lower East Side -- just know that the location on Delancey Street is busy and noisy.
