Holiday Inn Brooklyn Downtown – Hotel Review

In my first ever visit to Brooklyn, I found myself in the borough’s downtown area. Devoid of skyscrapers, at least by New York City standards, the Boerum Hill neighborhood is a short 15-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan.

The Holiday Inn Brooklyn Downtown is a convenient pied-à-terre for anyone wishing to be in close proximity to New York City’s financial district (it’s just a couple of subway stops away) while providing easy access to the many cultural, sportive, educational and gastronomic attractions of the area. Less than a five minute stroll from the hotel one finds the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Barclays Center, and other well-known attractions. Slightly farther away, but still within easy walking distance down Flatbush Avenue, one finds the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, and famed Prospect Park.

A stroll in the opposite direction will take one to Brooklyn Heights with its tree-lined streets, picturesque rows of brownstones, and the Brooklyn Heights Esplanade, with its magnificent views of the harbor, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, lower Manhattan, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

But I digress. I arrived at the hotel after a quick three-minute walk from the Nevins Street subway station and, since there was no doorman, I went right in to the front desk where the clerk promptly checked me in. He produced my room key, and I was off, first making a brief stop in the lobby to peruse the offerings of its eclectic library.


My King room provided a view of the Statue of Liberty in the distance, something that cannot be claimed by the majority of New York City hotels. I laid down on the comfortable king size bed for a nap. The nightstand next to the bed offered a convenient power outlet to charge my phone. I awoke feeling quite refreshed, and ready for dinner.

The bathroom had a feature that I had encountered during my stay at the Even Hotel New York – Times Square South property, one that I quite enjoyed, namely a window in the bathroom that provided a pleasant breeze while showering.
