oasis

Not in prime location. But hey! It is New York City. I found the element to be our private oasis. Literally! Walk in off the street to nice staff, hot coffee and tea at all hours and a very clean room. Small but hey, its the city! I would definitely stay here again. Free breakfast great bonus. Just two blocks from subway. Good choice!

Nice Hotel but Pricey

I liked the view from my room on the 34th floor. The kitchenette was great and bathroom very nice. I ended up paying way too much though with the total room price over 400 dollars. They were also stingy with the late check out. Had to leave by 1 pm even though I didn't arrive until 1100 pm. Would be good choice if you can get a decent price.

Relaxing visit to NYC

The Element is a modern, eco-friendly experience. The exercise room was state-of-the-art, the breakfast offered excellent selection, and the lobby was comfortable. The room was a bit small, but not unexpectedly so, being right in Times Square. The staff was courteous and very helpful. This was my first visit to the Big Apple, and I had a wonderful time!

Great location

The location was perfect to the Javitz Center. Central to a lot of other attractions. It was a little busy at the complimentary breakfast in the morning. The staff were friendly and helpful more so than other hotels I have stayed at so it was a welcome surprise. I would definitely stay there again.

Pleasant Surprise near the Port Authority...

Aside from the amazing, comfy bed, good television, and spotless bathroom..my room had sink, huge fridge, dishwasher, stovetop, dishes, glassware, etc... There was a "Relax" time..which is a happy hour in the evening during the week with free wings, cheese, wine and beer and soda.. Plus continental breakfast in the a.m....all included in room price. Definitely recommend it to anyone who needs to be in midtown for business or pleasure.

There is a Dean and Deluca right on 8th ave at 40th street...great coffees, sandwiches, salads, and sushi from a michelin star restaurant. Pretty awesome for right in front of the Port Authority
