    Why? Near Galerias Santo Domingo, a secure island mall of gringo-ness, where there are no(?) hotels now. Their cineplex is the only one in Nicaragua that shows non-Hollywood/Disney films, i.e., independent 'foreign' flics, as far as I know.
    I never met a Semite I didn't like.

    There are a few places that show indie/artsy flick in Managua. Not large cineplexes though.
    I have seen a couple of local-ish or indie films at Plaza Inter, and the Alhambra.

    There are also tons of hotels in the galerias area. Just smaller independent ones, no hiltons/super 8/best western, etc.

    I thought there already was a holiday inn in managua. near rotunda periodista, next to the car rental places. I have a friend that works there.

    There's only one at Plaza Inter now that could pass as indie: the Mexican movie 'Cantinflas'. It's also at La Galeria plus they're showing the Spanish film 'Tierra De Maria' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtlntyUzeIU and the documentary LUBARAUN about the Garifuna culture on the Caribbean of Nicaragua & Honduras. It premiered in Pearl Lagoon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0X6HnIlBGw

    Cookshow - is that the language you can speak, or at least understand?

    Vinyl~003 - please recommend one within safe walking distance of the mall.

    This will be an 'Express' - smaller rooms, quicker in/out.

    Ah. never knew there was a difference in holiday inn/express. learn something new every day.

    Unfortunately, i cant recommend any of the hotels in the Galerias area cause ive never stayed there personally, and try to avoid the area as much as possible. But ill ask around for you. Ive seen a number of them driving by, but ill ask around if anyone has a specific good recommendation.

    Same market niche as Hampton inns...

    Clean, non descript room on the strip mall end of town where road warriors raise at 7 or 8 AM, banquet on the finest bagels, yogurt, eggs made from powder and processed breakfast mystery meat.. Only to return there 8 to 10 hours later or to another..

    For me Houston, Dallas, San Jose, Livermore, Corvalus, Portland, Circleville, Ann Arbour, Elmira, Perrysburg, Toledo, Indianapolis, Chicago, San diego, LA, Atlanta and Boise....
