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.

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.

Great location and good price for New York!

Stayed for 3 nights. Great location and good price for New York! The only odd thing was I had to pay 10$ to leave my luggage until evening.

Just okay

Great for a budget traveler who is only using the room to shower and sleep. Had an incident with a "critter" at 4am and the staff was helpful and accommodating to switch my room immediately. Great location and great price for the area but definitely in need of some new carpet and paint.

Good Standard

Very central and convenient location. Everything OK, nothing special. Used to be a better Hotel a long time ago. Depending on how much you pay, this can be a very good deal.

Staff burnt out

I stayed at the New Yorker about six years ago and had a much better experience at the hotel. Lindy's was the hotel dinner, and they took forever to get us even water. The waiter made up for it though with putting my order on the dinner special (even though it was not). The service workers at the hotel have an attitude like they are really something special and you are just the dumb tourist out of town. A real turn off

great location

The hotel is located in a perfect place. Within one minute from the subway, the hotel is there. The service is average, if you need to store your luggage, u need to pay 5 dollars, plus tips, you could pay up to 7. The room is dark, and a bit noise due to the a/c.

Great location, dirty hotel

I stayed there one night and couldn't stay any longer! The only good thing about the hotel is its location.. anything else is awful.. Room smelled so bad and was dirty, checking in took around 30 mins, the window in the room was broken..

The location was great and the staff was very helpful. The room needs renovation but all I needed was a place to sleep and that was fine.

Basic hotel but good location.

I stayed in this hotel for four (4) days in March 2014. Due to a long cue and insufficient reception staff, check-in took about 45 minutes - not a pleasant experience after a long international flight. Room decor and furnishings were dated and very basic. Wifi internet is available but costs an extra US$11 per day. Available dining facilities are basic. On a positive note, the hotel location is excellent with easy access to public transport and shopping outlets.

Pennsylvania Hotel

This hotel is located in midtown close to everything. The location and price are fantastic. The cleanliness and amenities are very poor. I love a good value but this place was dirty and in really bad shape. I won't be staying there again.

Short visit in New York

Stay hotel for 2 nights. Room was small, no amennity, very good location. However, hotel is old and it is hard to look for your room becauase each flooor has got 99 rooms. I think for single person, this hotel is value to stay. I paid less than USD 100 per night so l will come back to stay next time.
