Sweet 16 trip

I took my granddaughter to NY for her 16th birthday. The Grand Union was a good choice for location and price. The subway was only a block away to go anywhere. The staff was helpful in giving directions to all the events we planned to see. Would stay here again.

Friendly but grubby.

The hotel is really well located, the reception team were helpful and the reception area was reasonably welcoming. The bed and linen were clean and comfortable, but the room and corridors were really very grubby, the elevator was rather slow, so I used the stairs, here the the floor was actually thick with dust and dirt, it had obviously never been cleaned. My bathroom was quite dirty too with hair in the sink and shower and a previous occupant's plastic bag still on the flioor. The hotel was not cheap enough to justify such poor maintenance.

Good location,

Basic breakfast & amenities but the Good location for Central manhattan & Empire State Building and price compensate for this. Staff were polite and helpful. Wifi only worked in reception area. I would recommend this hotel if you want a basic, affordable well located place to stay in Central Manhattan.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

There are many bus tour operators in NY but Gray LIne ran more frequent buses than the tour company I chose. On several occasions I had to endure 30 minute + wait for my bus while seeing other tour buses arrive and leave.

Less Expensive hotel in NYC

The hotel was exactly what I was looking for, not too crazy expensive, walking distance from time square...clean room and a must for me two single beds and a double...Traveling with teenagers, they didn't want to share beds....The staff was just ok, but that is ok, I didn't care! I will definitely be back to this hotel for the value price.

Are you serious with the breakfast?

For every person just 2 piece?? That must be a bad joke. BUT at least the WI-FI was for free...And that in NY. Thank you for that

Convenient and cost effective

Breakfast was choice of two items from a selection of pastry, muffins and bagels which was more than ample to get you going. We took it back to our room as it could get busy in reception. Was also great that we could get our tea/coffee to go as well! Room much bigger than I had expected at the front of the building (was expecting a shoe box of sorts!), shower is tight when washing your hair (elbows hit the shower wall), but who cares when you can still wash all over. Can be a little bit noisy, but we expected that even on 5th floor. Easy walking distance to everything and just far enough out for it to be a little bit quieter than I expect time square area would be. Staff helpful, rooms were always clean, really enjoyed our stay and would come back again. Thank you Grand Union Hotel.

weekend break

Basic rooms but very clean,helpful staff, room cleaned and tidied daily. Good little cafe attached to the hotel ideal for breakfast.Very good location within walking distance of lots the attractions that New York has to offer. Would have no hesitation in staying here again. I do think that the hotel would benefit from having a bar for a nice relaxing cicktail after a hard days sightseeing.

good location vs worst wi-fi

Hotel's location is great. The rest of all expected from a nice hotel was not good. If you need an internet connection, do not stay here! wi-fi almost never works. Hotel has 10 floors and 1 very slow elevator! All workers and customers have to use it. It was really frustrated. Room and bathroom was kind of clean, sheets were ok. I think if they are in good mood, staff change towels and bring shampoo . Because we had to ask for them almost everyday. They offer coffee and bagels in the morning, under supervision of hotel person who acts like a cop and controls if anyone takes more than 2 bagels :) it's hilarious.. Would I recommend this hotel? don't think so.. I believe they charge much much more then what they offer...
