Perfect location for walking Broadway, Times Square and Fashion Avenue

This was a great location. It was perfect for walking to the Upper East and West Side- to everything. Broadway, shopping and Central Park just a short walk. The Empire State Building and Macy's just a block over.

This Isn't Union Square

I hate Times Square and when I booked this hotel it said Union Square. I made reservations at restaurants in Union square and come to find out - it was actually in Herald Square (near Time Square) which is my least favorite part of the city. The hotel itself was nice and the staff very friendly - but I would not have booked it had I realized the true location.

Just fine - good price, liked having a complimentary breakfast, and location was perfect for us. Heating didn't work too well, and a couch or another chair would have been nice. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Tough beginning.......

When I called in advance of arrival to ask for a room with two separate beds, the receptionist must have been having a bad day. She gave me a nasty reply about this being an reservation made through an online travel site so I'd have to take what I could get. Made me feel like a second class citizen and I hadn't even arrived yet! So upon arrival , I asked again for a room with two beds and was told that there weren't any. I went up to my assigned room which was the size of a postage stamp with a queen bed and the place reeked of bleach. Now I felt like a third class citizen. So I called down to the reception desk and asked for a room with a king bed and was told that for my online travel site reservation that this was not possible but one could be had for an additional upcharge. Which I paid to salvage the trip. The king room was very nice, a good size, quiet and with a nice bathroom. Similar experience with breakfast - the "included" breakfast was marginal but if you went to the attached bar through the lobby, you could get a decent breakfast which wasn't very expensive and made the start of the day much more pleasant. So all in all the hotel worked out for us, but I had to pay more to make comfortable.

/Excellent value for money

Hotel position excellent for central mid town sights. Subway 1 minute away for further afield. Time Square 5 min walk, best visit to Esse Bagel and Katz's diner. Breakfast a boon to start off a long walking day. Concierge helpful but pessimistic outlook re availability and timings. Had great time, blackout blind fell off window on last morning!. But would definitely stay here again.

Nice location and renovation

This was our fifth trip to Manhattan, a destination we always enjoy. This was our first stay at the Hotel Metro. We were celebrating my daughter's sixteenth birthday. I let them know this when I booked the reservation and they left two bottles of spring water and a small box of chocolates and a note wishing her a happy birthday and nice stay in NYC. She was surprised and pleased. The room was small, but the space was very well used so it wasn't a problem. The renovation has been done with attention to design and function. Bed linens were high quality. The bathroom shower was wonderful, with a choice between standard nozzle, handheld European, and the above head "rain" style, which I LOVED. Art Deco and Greta Garbo are the theme at the hotel, so it fits nicely with it's poshy midtown location. I'd rather stay here than in Time Square because you are only a block from a subway, it's a short walk to Time Square, and the ambience is so much nicer. It's also convenient to the subway for touring the Upper East Side and Museum Mile on Fifth Ave. across from Central Park. There's a nice bar and grill across from the hotel, Brendan's. They are open late. Had one of the best gourmet burgers there on our first night in town. Pharmacies, a McDonald's, Korean food, and shopping are all at your fingertips, as is Herald Square. Nice location. We've stayed throughout NYC over time and we would stay here again.

NYC Hotel Metro

Very serviceable. The staff was great and the concierge, Jeff, was very helpful with theater tix and restaurants. The room was comfortble and neat and clean, though it's the smallest hotel room I've ever seen. It's fine if all you're going to do is sleep there.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

skip the private (black car) cabs and stay with the yellow taxis, they're cheaper, although not remotely friendly - no small talk AT ALL.
