Extremely Basic

The best thing this hotel has going for it is the location. Its is right beside Times Square and also Hells Kitchen for nice bars and restaurants. Reception staff were not the most welcoming, the gentleman checking us in passed a comment under his breath about another guest checking in beside us. Not very professional. We opted for an upgraded room to a city view. This was a complete disappointment, the rooms was absolutely tiny and was barely a city view room. We were placed on the 10th floor, so was really more of a top of the roof view room. Was not worth the upgrade in my opinion. This was my fifth time in NYC and i know rooms are generally small but this room was tiny. In Ireland this hotel would be the equivalent of an Ibis Budget brand hotel. The bed was really comfortable. Our room was cleaned each day but the lifts definitely were not. Staff congregate on certain floors and are very loud and rude. The gym is really well equipped with good quality equipment so we used this most days of our stay. Didn't eat in the hotel as there is so many places around it to eat. Probably would not use this hotel again, plenty of hotels around that are not this basic.

Very clean rooms, a bit on the small side but didn’t bother us, even had a bath tub so we soaked our feet after a long day touring around NYC. Excellent location. Great eateries & restaurants in hotel. Great value

Returning week in november

Great location. Friendly staff. Personal feel. Returning customer, and was upgraded this year . Stayed 6 days with my son. Always a pleasant enjoyable experience ! Made new friends at the bar, this year granted the daily Prosecco deal, which made us stay and listen to live music. Great and friendly staff !

The room was only ok. We stayed in a Superior Queen and we're lucky we did as I dread to see the even smaller standard room. You wouldn't be able to swing a cat. I know NYC rooms are not the biggest anyway so this was not a complete deal breaker as I wasn't expecting it to be huge. However the room was so warm. On the first night that we arrived I turned down the temp and the fan was extremely loud which was not ideal but on my return to the room I noticed this just went off by itself while I was out and the room was roasting again. We resorted to opening a window slightly to keep the temp down as the fan was not reliable but again if you're a light sleeper bring some ear plugs as you will hear all of the outside noise as well as other fans attached to other rooms. The elevators also take awhile so I would agree with other reviewers here that this is not ideal and you never know how long it could take. Room amenities were pretty much non-existent. You get an ice bucket but the re-usable bottles/pouches that are advertised as included in the room were plastic cups similar to what you get in Starbucks. How am I supposed to carry that around in the city? Our room was close to the water and ice dispenser which was great but I had to resort to using a plastic water bottle that I purchased on the flight for refills. No tea/coffee making facilities and no fridge. Not a huge issue but again would make the experience a bit more pleasant. Also be careful when going to check out as you will receive an email that states it is easier to check out electronically. I tried to do this and was informed that I owed 50 dollars that was outstanding for unpaid breakfast fees. We did not have breakfast included and did not eat in the hotel so charged nothing back to the room. Went to the front desk to check out and was told I was 'good to go' with no outstanding charges as I had paid for the room upfront. I was a little confused but did not have time to question this with the lady but just beware in case you choose this option. Best thing about this hotel is the location. It's amazing if you want to stay in Midtown Manhattan and be close to everything. Penn station only 10 mins walk away (max). Times Sq & Broadway subway stops extremely close to the hotel. It is especially good if you are going to a show as you will be in the immediate surroundings of the theaters. Overall not the worst stay but small things can be fixed to make this hotel a lot better.

Great location

This hotel is in a great location . Reception staff not very welcoming, why are they working front desk , on arrival you want to be greeted with a friendly smile . Lifts quite a good system you press the floor you want , then your allocated a lift . Rooms we upgraded all I can say is this is a very basic room in England , the room was dirty as was the bathroom , staff would be sacked in England . Beds very comfortable. I wouldn’t like to stay in this hotel if I was a single traveller on several occasions we were in lifts with the homeless how do I know this as they got out on the floors 4 -7 where you could see lots of people congregating around what looked like a kitchen . On our last evening which was thanksgiving we encountered a man who we had seen before in the lift absolutely out of his head staring at us , actually felt very uncomfortable. Would I stay here again , definitely not.
