Telephone: (718) 797-1133; Facsimile: (718) 797-1163.
“We chose to develop a Holiday Inn Express in Park Slope because of its proximity to downtown Brooklyn,” said Robbie Wilson, city manager, Magna Hospitality Group, LC. “There is also a shortage of hotels in this area and because we have had such great success with Holiday Inn Express hotels, we decided to develop another in Park Slope.”
Situated one mile from downtown Brooklyn, on Union St. between 3rd and 4th Ave., the new 33,000 sq.-ft. property is just seven miles from New York City area attractions. The train station, located just one mile from the hotel, conveniently connects guests to Central Park, Times Square and Rockefeller Center in just minutes.
With the addition of the Holiday Inn Express Brooklyn, there will be
nearly 30 Holiday Inn Express hotels with more than 2,300 guestrooms in
the state of New York. The InterContinental Hotels Group portfolio in New
York, represented by six of its brands, includes the upper upscale, upscale,
full service, limited service, upscale extended-stay and midscale extended-
stay segments with more than 80 hotels and over 15,000 rooms.
