Hotel Central Fifth Avenue

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • A solid and sensible option -- this used to be the Holiday Inn Express, so it still has that brand's clean, practical look
  • A great location around the corner from Fifth Avenue and five blocks from Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral
  • About seven minutes on foot from Times Square; close enough to the lights but nicely removed from the hubbub
  • All guests get free Wi-Fi and a daily continental breakfast

Overview

A great option for travelers who want a sensible, often-times inexpensive hub for New York City sightseeing, the Hotel Central Fifth Avenue makes good on the promises in its name. Top tourist sights are very close by: Times Square is less than ten minutes away on foot (a distance we prefer, actually, as you're not in the thick of the crowds); Fifth Avenue shopping is around the corner, including Rockefeller Center and St. Patrick's Cathedral.

This used to be a Holiday Inn Express, and pretty much all that's changed is the name. We walked over to check it out (it's only a few minutes from our office) and the hotel still has that brand's simple, straightforward design. Rooms are clean and uncluttered, if not the most stylish. Staff are very friendly and attentive. A good option for families too as there are rooms with two double beds, though they are a bit snug so the whole family better be getting along. The lobby is simply laid out if a bit narrow, with a continental breakfast bar of cereals and pastries that's free for all guests. All guests also get free Wi-Fi.

We had a room on the first floor that was basically like the maid's quarters. Near the stock room and cleaning supplies closet. We were woken up both mornings at around 5am due to the hotel staff prepping the breakfast. After 6am, it was impossible to sleep since breakfast was from 6-10am. There should not be rooms on the first floor.

The free breakfast didn't really help us, because it was packed with too many people, so we went to Hot Bagels across the street and had a decent meal.

If you are looking for a hotel in the Times Square area that will break the budget, this is a good choice. Close to Broadway shows, TKTS, many restaurants. Small clean rooms, friendly staff.
