Good but not superb value

Clean and modern with nice rooftop bar, but a few shortcomings where I expected more service for the price: room wasn't ready for on time check in, our toilet ran all night and we didn't have enough hot water for two showers in the morning. We told the front desk on checkout and I expected at least a token accommodation (free breakfasts, even coffee?) but was offered little more than basic acknowledgement. Again, not the end of the world, but I would expect more for $500 a night. Location was definitely convenient, but there's a Marriottt adjacent (literally attached) for much cheaper price where I imagine service would be comparable. I would stay there next time.

Nice New York Stay

The Strand was a wonderful hotel and met all of our expectations. The staff is professional, friendly and very helpful. Our room was very large considering the size of most New York hotel rooms and very clean. We will definitely check the availability of The Strand Hotel when in New York again.

Ten mins from hotel is the Stop for city tour buses. A quick hour and a half will take you round the city areas to help you plan sightseeing.( possible to haggle too!)

Stellar staff

From the moment the car pulled up in front of The Strand we were treated like honored guests. The doorman was our first contact and was so very nice and likable (Russian accent so even though I understood him perfectly I did not catch his name which is my only regret). The manager and young lady at the front desk were so fun and upgraded our room to a fantastic view of the Empire State building. The staff in the bistro and rooftop lounge were also very pleasant. Loved staying here. Close to many things.

Shopping break

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. The location was ideal, near Macy's, within walking distance of Times Square and some lovely restaurants. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The room, while on the small side was perfect for our stay and more importantly was very clean

Great Stay

The hotel was a great place to stay. We were centrally located to the things we had planned. We attended an event at Madison Square Garden which was very close to the hotel. The staff was excellent, very helpful.

Nice spot in midtown

First time here - needed a spot for one night and this turned out to be a great find. Easy walk from the train stations - as well as to most anything you want to do in midtown. Staff is very attentive and helpful. Both the ground floor and the rooftop bars are great spots to hang out.

Amazing Couple Getaway

The perfect place for a couple to getaway in NYC. The hotel is located by everything.. time square, central park, empire state building, radio city hall, penn stations, etc. They have the most amazing Roof Top bar that over looks the empire state building. The staff working the bar are very friendly and outgoing making the experience even more memorable. The hotel is clean and modern. Very unique. The staff is very knowledgeable about the city and offer great suggestions with places to eat or visit. Very helpful especially for first timers. I will definitely return!!

New York fall visit

We were in NY to visit our daughter and have some fun. We have been here several times but this was our first stay at the Strand. It was wonderful with the staff being most accommodating and helpful. Lovely bar on Lobby level as well as a fun roof top garden bar. Rooms were good size for NY and very clean. Would definitely stay here again
