A hop, skip, and a jump from Times Square, you can't get much closer to one of the Big Apple's premier attractions. Other hot spots, like Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and more are all a very short distance away by foot, taxi, or subway. Speaking of subways, your best bet is either 49 St, two blocks north, or Rockefeller Center Station, two blocks east.

The best place for a theatre enthusiast to stay!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this hotel! Close to all the theatres, clean and stylish, and the staff are incredible! I always stay here and have recommended it to a number of friends. After staying there, they agree with me!

Small rooms, great location.

Don’t let the pictures fool you, these rooms are tiny, especially for 2. However, the hotel is located right next to time square. We’re talking about walk out of the hotel, and you’re a building away. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Something we learned the hard way ($21 for 4 water bottles later) is that if you ask the front desk, they give out free water! Take advantage of that! Overall I’d stay here again simply for the location. The rooms are no frill, but it’s worth it.

Simple and satisfactory

I was really apprehensive about our stay after seeing some reviews but thankfully we had a pleasant stay. I think people need to remember where your staying. I booked as a package on expedia and the hotel was the best price. The rooms are clean and have what you need, bed, tv , desk, iron and board, hairdryer, phone and bathroom. Yes there is no fridge but cant say many hotels I go to have then in prime locations. There is a wardrobe which is small but sufficient again the hotel is aimed at just a couple of nights stay There is a facility fee which was 15usd but this was also on my booking confirmation there were no other hidden costs we experienced. The lifts are below average but nothing to get so enraged about as people have on some reviews. Staff were always pleasant ans helpful. Luggage storage was a great benefit as we had an evening flight. You are literally right in times square there is going to be noise at all hours. There is construction going on currently but ive herd louder air con units on holiday and also the hotel cant control that. There is literally everything at your finger tips.

Dont stay here

Location is excellent, however the hotel is not 4* (even by Manhattan standards). My 5th visit to New York and this hotel was so poor we checked out and went somewhere else. We arrived late on the first night, which is the only reason we stayed the first night. The hotel has recently changed ownership and seems to be on a downward spiral. It was called the Night Hotel when we booked, and no one had the courtesy to tell us it had changed name (thanks Expedia!). Only 1 lift was working which caused lengthy delays. The room door felt very insecure - which was probably a good thing as the card access reader rarely worked. This meant I spent long period in the hotel corridor where the smell of cannabis/marijuanas was very strong. The room was small - but thats to be expected in Manhattan, but human hair in the bathroom is not to be expected. When we complained to the staff, they were very apologetic, and have obviously heard lots of complaints recently - i felt very sorry for them. I spoke to the hotel manager Erica who agreed that we would received a full refund for the remaining nights - becasue we booked through Expedia she said the refund would have to be processed through Expedia. So far i've complained 3 times, but received no contact about the refund. Don't stay at this hotel, it's clearly being run down with no investment - no chance it will get 4* in its current state.

Great stay in NYC

Very positive, staff was very helpful. I stayed there for 1 night before my interview in Manhattan and it was conveniently located and well priced. I would recommend staying here for anyone on a business trip in NYC.
