The Pennsylvania Hotel New York is located at 33rd Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan. Catch up on work at the 24-hour business center, which features printers and high-speed internet access, or after a long day at a meeting use your complimentary guest passes to work out at Bally Total Fitness. Located next door to the hotel, it offers up-to-the-minute workout equipment, as well as a swimming pool and spa.

Affordable and within walking distance of various New York tower blocks like the Empire State Building and the vibrant oasis of Madison Square Garden, the Pennsylvania is a smart choice for leisure guests too, with central rooms and a budget price tag.
     
Sometimes known as the Hotel Pennsylvania or Hotel Penn, the accommodations here were opened in 1919 and have had several other names over the years, including the Statler-Hilton Hotel, after the original manager Ellsworth Statler. 
Key facts
  • Over 1,700 guestrooms

Neighborhood
At the intersection of New York City's main tourist areas, such as the Broadway Theater district and Times Square, why not step out of the grand entrance at the Hotel Pennsylvania, turn to the right or left, and see where the sidewalk takes you? The Chrysler Building and Macy's are close at hand, and it's easy to reach the fashionable Chelsea and West Village neighborhoods from here too.
Hints and tips
Canine enthusiasts should plan a visit to coincide with the Westminster Dog Show, an annual event where dogs are put through their paces at nearby Madison Square Garden. Even better, the hotel itself is dog-friendly and there are no size restrictions, although there is an additional fee for your pet to stay. Make sure you check with the front desk before bringing along your furry friend.

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

fantastic value and location

Do not believe all the bad reviews on this hotel, just got back room was basic but very clean, fresh towels daily, staff friendly and helpful. This is a basic old hotel but great value for the money. Location is perfect for travel anywhere. I would recommend this hotel, and will be going back next year in warmer weather. Would definitely use this hotel again. Talk to the staff it has a lot of history behind it xx. Brilliant stay x

Decent Enough

This place is directly across the street from Penn Station/Madison Sq Garden - an incredibly convenient location. The hotel is okay; it's not luxurious in any way, but it's good enough if all you want is an inexpensive place to stay in Manhattan.

Hotel Pennsylvania

The amenities are lacking and the room decor and furniture is really put dated. However for me all this was known before I booked and what made up for it was the price and the location. Centrally located in Manhatten and across the road from the main Penn staton from wheer you get off if getting a train from the airport.

Good if you just need to crash somewhere

I booked a single double bed room. Since the hotel was crowded due to a lot of flight cancle we were given a single 2 double bed room. The room was pretty spacious but the whole floor was kind of creepy. They don't have any microwave or coffee maker or provide any toiletries. It was amok experience.

If you need a clean cheap bed on short notice then...

Stuck in NYC because of a snow storm. All hotels in the area were booked or asked for $400 a night. Needing only one night, Hotel Pennsylvania fit. With over 2,000 rooms the check-in was very efficient given the number of people checking in. The gentleman at the desk was very friendly even after checking in literally 100's of people in line. Booked the Penn 5,000 room. Cheap by New York standards or any city. Room was very big, bed and bathroom were clean. The room could definitely use a paint job, new carpet and new TV. I was looking for a clean bed and a central location and Hotel Pennsylvania provided that. Directly across the street from Penn Station.

Second time staying there...

And it completely changed my opinion about the hotel! The check-in person gave us a free upgrade from a regular double bed to a room with 2 double beds. The bathroom still looked very old, but it was clean. The location is definitely great and it is not really noisy because of the streets.
