Gallagher's steak house. Overpriced for very average steak. Steak was not cooked to specifications. No kids menu. Skip this steak house.

A Train Runs Through It . . .

Great location, clean comfortable room, but the rooms that you book through [...] that are on the lower floors (and more affordable) are directly over the subway. So it sounds like a train is coming through your room. About every 20 minutes or so. Desk staff was wonderful - good humored, apologetic. They comped us for breakfasts at the restaurant next door, offered to move us up a floor though we would still hear the train. Just be sure to book a higher floor or call the hotel and ask them in advance for a room without the subway running under it.Otherwise the hotel was great, very clean, decent room, parking next door, plenty of dining choices nearby, great location for Times Square and transportation.

Clean, comfortable, cozy accommodations

Hotel is accurately described online and in the reviews. Pleasant room for New York near Times Square. We were very disappointed in the attached restaurant, Pigalle, however. Watery oatmeal for $6.95, with no toast, and my husband's egg benedict arrived cold after waiting one hour. Great restaurants if you walk a bit to Hell's Kitchen over on 9th Avenue, and the Food Emporium is just a half block to the north right on 8th. Excellent take-out.

We had bad experience at the Pigalle Restaurant in the hotel. Very expensive and a long wait for breakfast. Be prepared to spend $30 for breakfast for two, and avoid the Irish oatmeal.

NYC

The hotel was nice and convenient to everything. We also enjoyed the restaurant. We had brunch there twice. I'd stay here again and certainly recommend it for the price and convenience to everything.

This hotel is a great stay. Excellent !!

This was a good trip and the hotel help to make it happen. We came to NYC to see a Broadway play and just hang out. Your staff helped with excellent advise on what to do and what to see while there. We've stayed at your hotel on previous trips and decided to return because of it's great location and the willingness of the staff to assist us in finding our way around town.

For Jazz lovers. Birdland is just a short walk, 4 blocks, to 44th st. But get reservations early.

Great location and services

Great location, the services are excellent. The wifi, micro oven, mini freeze, but specially the wifi are good saves. You can plan your day checking websites, maps, etc. The printer service was great to print some vouches and tickets. There are a couple of mini markets nearby so you can save some bucks in lunch or dinner.

Fantastic Hotel at an unbelievable price

This hotel is just off Times Square, you are in the heart of the action. The rooms were very large for New York. The staff were excellent, the breakfast amazing and all at a good price.

Serendipity 3 is near Bloomingdales on Lexington Avenue, well worth a visit. It is quirky and not your typical dining venue. Try their " FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE", its to die for.
