Great Pick!!

If you are like me and like to have it all in once location this hotel is great. The hotel is connected to the AMA seminar building, making it very easy to get there in the morning when I am staying in NYC for seminars. Plus the hotel has a great gym. It is very convenient to not have to take the extra travel time to get to these locations and instead have more time to enjoy myself in the city. Also the staff has always been very helpful and friendly and the rooms are very comfy.

Girly break!

The hotel is in a perfect location, so central that if one of us felt like popping out alone even late at night it was safe to do so! It was perfect for restaurants, buses to outlets, shopping etc! Room & bathroom spotless, good size considering most nyc rooms are cramped. Staff friendly. Only 2 let downs: no free wifi, and the bar closes too early. Have stayed here before and would stay again!

Perfect location

My family and I were more than pleased with the Crown Plaza Hotel. The view from the room was amazing and we didn't even face Times Square. The bus tours are close and the staff is welcoming!

Quick in city trip

Couldn't have asked for a better hotel IN Times Square. Room over-looked Broadway. Clean, comfortable and close to everything. Staff helped us get great tickets to the show we wanted to see. Already planning next month's trip.

This hotel is in the middle of all the action in Times Square. Only one block to several subway locations. Hotel will hold your luggage if you arrive early and hold it for you the last day before you leave. Great way to experience the City.

Overpriced Internet!

The Crowne Plaza is well located for those who wish to be in the heart of Broadway. The rooms are nice enough and the staff is pleasant enough. On the downside, the cost for access to the Internet was exhorbitant. Until I stayed here, the most I paid for Internet access was about $10 for a 24 hour period. The Crowne Plaza thinks that you should pay $9.95 for four hours, which means that you are paying a rate equivalent to $60 per day. Moreover, the property has only one restaurant, so if you are looking for a quick, releatively inexpensive meal, you will have to leave the hotel.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

The 9/11 Memorial is easy to reach by subway from this hotel, but it is important to get a ticket online in advance. Choose the 10:00 AM opening time if possible so the crowds will be less imposing. From the Crowne Plaza, take the Number 1 line from 50th & Broadway to Rector Street and follow the directions on your ticket. Get there about 15-30 minutes before your admission time.
