The Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan is a savvy choice for travelers wishing to be near the action in the city that never sleeps. The lush lobby with hot-pink lighting overlooks the neon spectacle of Times Square and, with 20,000-square-feet of event space, two self-service business centers and helpful concierges, the Crowne Plaza Times Square aims to satisfy visitors of every type. Platters of classic American comfort food are offered in the upscale surroundings of Brasserie 1605, and handcrafted cocktails are the specialty at Broadway 49 Bar & Lounge.

Family Friendly

The hotel is being completed remodeled floor by floor. We stayed on the 27th floor. We were the first to stay in rooms that had just been finished. Very, very nice! The beds were really comfortable which made it nice after walking all over New York during the day. It was nice having the vanity area with the sink separate from the bathroom. No steam when I needed the mirror. The staff was very helpful... answering questions be had about New York or anything we might have needed. We stayed here 10 years ago and if we ever get to come back it will be the Crown Plaza. We have to come back once everything is complete to see all that has been done. Good excuse for another visit! Did not use Hotel amenities or dining.

Great location

The Crown Plaza Hotel in Times Square was in a great location--convenient to restaurants, theatres and shopping. The hotel is in the process of being renovated, and the renovated rooms, while not huge, are clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows and the bathroom was good-sized. We never had to wait long for an elevator, despite the fact that the hotel had 46 floors (we were on 38th floor). Hotel security is very good. In the evening, guests must shown their room cards at two security points before being allowed entry to the guest rooms. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would use again ourselves if travelling back to New York City.

If using the subway (1, 2 or 3 trains) it is best to use 50th Street, which is only 1-1/2 blocks from hotel.

Very comfortable and quiet

The crown plaza was centrally located in time squares. The room was comfortable but the furniture was old along the bathroom.The room had adequate space for hanging clothes. The biggest draw back was the small safe in the room, unable to secure a laptop unlike other hotel I've stay in. They are presently renovating all the room from the bottom up, believe they were on the 9th floor and we were on the 17th. Overall the best thing going for the hotel is it's location--it was really on times square. Would stay again--only in the renovated room which might cost more by then.

Great Spot.

This hotel is in the PERFECT spot; right in the center of Time's Square. The staff was friendly, beds comfortable, and they had cupcakes. The room was very clean && sanitary. It's a great place to bring children. Although, they are making renovations and it's quite tedious having to go up one floor, getting off, and then having to go into another elevator to get to your room. Overall, this hotel was a great experience and so was the city.

Great Location

The hotel was under renovation as most generally are. The location was excellent as we travelled with children and they could easily keep up with Times Square events, Central Park and easy access to the subway.

Great location

The location of the hotel was great, right on Times Square. The room was pleasent and kept clean with fresh towels daily. You need to show your room key card to get access which gives you a good sense of security. Our room over looked the interio so there wasn't much of a view. Room darkening curtains made it easy to sleep. The staff was very nice. Only two small complaints. No refrigerator in the room. The room seamed a little musty at times due to the AC. All in all a very nice stay.

Deserves a second visit

The hotel lobby was undergoing construction during my visit, so some of the hotel's amenities were unavailable. I would be willing to visit it again after the work is completed to see what the hotel is truly like.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Do not count on buying theater tickets at the TKTS booth in Times Square unless you live in New York City and have a lot of time on your hands. The line is long, the hours of operation are short, and there is no guarantee you will get tickets to anything you want to see. If you are on limited time, plan ahead and buy your show tickets in advance.
