The Holiday Inn Express Brooklyn Downtown is in Boerum Hill, tucked between the neighborhoods of Cobble Hill and Park Slope. The Fulton Street Mall, a 20-minute walk north, offers 17 blocks of pedestrian-only chain and independent shopping. Prospect Park is a 20-minute walk, too--you can explore ample green spaces, take in live concerts, and let the kids (or the kids at heart) frolic on the playgrounds. This hotel is located just 1 block away from Union Street subway station where you can take the D, N, or R line directly into lower Manhattan and Times Square.
You'll probably want to visit the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, 1.5 miles northwest of the hotel. You can walk across the bridge to Lower Manhattan and enjoy spectacular river and city views along the way. Back on the Brooklyn side, reward yourself with pizza from top-rated Grimaldi's, just a 5-minute walk from the bridge. Or stop by the delightful Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, serving old-school treats on the waterfront.
The hotel's immediate neighborhood has several restaurants, but you won't have to think twice about your morning meal while you're here. A complimentary buffet breakfast featuring fresh cinnamon rolls and omelets is offered daily. Traveling for work? Step into the 24-hour business center to put the finishing touches on your presentation--and maybe research a few sightseeing opportunities, too. Limited parking available on first come first serve basis is available for an extra fee.
In your guestroom, you can use the complimentary wireless Internet access to keep in touch with friends. Or settle back and watch your favorite HBO shows on the flat-screen TV. Weekday mornings, enjoy your coffee while reading the day's headlines--a complimentary newspaper will be delivered right to your door.
