The Holiday Inn New York City – Wall Street is a narrow building which you can miss easily. Once located, I checked in. As a IHG gold member and as it was my first check-in in that hotel, I gout upgraded to an executive room. A nice touch.
I chose this hotel for being close to the World Trade Center site. In the few available hours I had, I wanted to visit that.
The room is small, as are all rooms in Manhattan. Still, there’s everything. A kingsize bed, a large tv, coffee and tea making facilities, a desk, an array of power outlets. A bathroom with shower and bath.
The internet wasn’t up to speed, literally.
The gym is located in a small room in the basement. There are three machine. A fixed bicycle, a treadmill and a crosstrainer. That’s not much, but enough for me. Those are usually the exercises I do.
There’s an in-house restaurant, of which I forgot the name. It offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. No breakfast buffet, but you can order from several options.
The breakfast was okay. In a metropolis as the Big Apple, having breakfast out is a better option. There’s so much choice.
I was happy at the Holiday Inn New York City – Wall Street. It’s decent and a good product for Manhattan. A complimentary newspaper, USA Today, in the morning was a nice touch.
