We had a blast at Ellen's Starlight Diner after Wicked. This was a great "singing" experience as the wait staff sing while we dined. Just across the street from the Girshwin. Lot's of fun.

Good value - for New York

Very friendly and helpful front desk. Hotel in a convenient location. Breakfast was good but would have preferred a 6am start time. Compared to other Manhattan Hotels, the price was right. Would certainly recommend to anybody on a budget.

New York City for 4th of July 2010

Hotel was nice but very crowded...very clean and staff was wonderful! Our only complaint was that the handicap shower fixture had a broken part...we were originally told it would be fixed in a day or so, then that they could not get the part until later. They offered to have us change our room, but each time we were on the way out the door...we had so much to fit in that was scheduled, so we just stayed in the room. [...]

good location but really small rooms

I really didn't spend that much time in the hotel, but the time I did spend was OK. The room was very small for 4 people and a lot of luggage. And the location was very good, near Times Square, but at night 39th st. and 8th av. it's not so nice to walk, especially for women alone.

Holiday Inn Express 39th street NYC

This was the worst hotel experience of my life. I have stayed in plenty of different Holiday Inn Express locations, in not-so-nice cities, and have enjoyed great service and accommodations. You would expect nothing less going somewhere as popular as New York City. The staff members were inattentive and rude. Upon arrival, we were told our bags would be "safely" held until check-in. The "safe" place was the middle of the hotel lobby where anyone at any time could have taken our belongings. On check-in, which was supposed to be 3pm, our rooms were not ready. We waited until 4:30pm to receive the key. The following morning, following the way overcrowded breakfast, some family members and friends got on the elevator to return to the room on the 21st floor. The elevator began to act up, proceeding to free fall from the 15th to the 3rd floor. The people on the elevator were then stuck for almost an hour by the time the non-english- speaking maintenance man pried the doors open BETWEEN the 3rd and 4th floors, requiring everyone to JUMP below to safety. Mind you, the only other available elevator was already out of order. SO, WE HAD TO WALK UP 21 FLIGHTS OF STAIRS. The hotel not only was not there to apologize for the incident, we had to seek out management to complain. The hotel manager was NOT working on a weekend, nor did he ever show his face. Thank goodness no one was seriously injured. Upon speaking to the manager, he merely vaguely apologized, promising to take care of the situation, while we never got anything in writing. I can only tell anyone who plans to stay here, it is NOT NEW. It is obviously newly renovated. It is several blocks from Times Square. It is VERY SMALL AND CROWDED. You will be disappointed. And I honestly hope no one has to experience the traumatic elevators, considering the hotel staff was not at all worried about fixing the problem.

Pleasant Surprise

Location was very convenient to trains, restaurants and entertainment. Staff was great. Beds were a bit short, but I'm 6'6", so I run into that alot. I was on the 35th floor, so it was pleasantly quiet being away from street level. I'll definately return!
