Bottom Line

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.

Scene

A contemporary mid-range chain hotel on the border between SoHo and Little Italy

The second-floor lobby features plenty of lounge space and corporate-style decor in neutral colors

The Holiday Inn SoHo is a mid-range chain hotel and lacking in distinctive style, but it's a clean, contemporary option that delivers on all of the brand staples. Upon arrival, guests ride escalators to the second-floor lobby, which has beige leather couches, wood paneling, and paneled ceilings that look like they could belong in an office building.

The hotel is popular with business travelers, who likely appreciate the large meeting room and 24-hour business and fitness centers. Families may like the size of the rooms, which are more spacious than can be found at many mid-range options in New York City.

Location

On the border between Little Italy and SoHo, within walking distance of Chinatown

Map of Holiday Inn SoHo New York

The Holiday Inn SoHo is located on Lafayette Street, in the southeastern corner of SoHo, one of New York’s most vibrant fashion and dining districts. SoHo is arguably one of the best locations downtown, thanks to its stylish designer boutiques and great restaurants, though the hotel is actually a little closer to the heart of Little Italy and Chinatown. It's also possible to walk to the Lower East Side and Tribeca. There are four subway lines within about a block of the hotel.

Features

A restaurant, meeting space, and fitness center

On-site restaurant 123 Bistro serves breakfast and dinner

The Holiday Inn has a solid selection of features for a mid-range hotel. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner (but not lunch), and as is customary with the Holiday Inn brand, kids under 10 eat for free.

There is also a small, windowless fitness center with cardio machines and free weights.
