Moderatley Good NY Hotel

Good hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Not a bad location, but subway and buses were needed to access most attractions. Theater Row Diner - good breakfast only a block away. Newspaper availability would be nice.

New York night

We booked this hotel because we needed a room close by the cruise terminal. It could not have been better. We were a 15 minute walk from Penn Station and a 17 minute walk from the cruise terminal! we were a short walk from the Heartand Brewery, an excellent restaurant with wonderful entrees, yummy beers and knowledgeable waitstaff! The room was comfortable and overlooked a huge pool. We would definitely stay there again.

There was nothing special about the hotel itself, but given it's location it was a great value. The room was fine and the staff was helpful. Close to subway.

Would Stay Again

Staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel was clean and great location, however, bathroom was a little cramp. Hotel located on 42nd street so able to walk to Time Square, broadway and other must see attractions. Hubby and I were in New York to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. PARKING WAS NOT FREE as advertised on booking site. Despite my protest and showing them the information cited on wedsite, hotel staff would not waive the fee. Very disappointing. However, the fee was $20 per day and this was nominal when comparing to other hotels.

City Break

Great, functional hotel in a good location. Super bars, restaurants and sights within easy walking distance. Only complaint is that advertised "free" parking dies not exist anymore. It's €20.00 per night since April. Huge bonus is a large rooftop swimming pool with plenty on sun loungers, on 42nd street!

Convenience in the city

This was my boyfriend & I's first trip into NYC & we wanted a place that was convenient to the restaurant & theater we were going to. This hotel is located perfectly!!! Everything was within walking distance, with a short 2-3 block walk to Times Square. The staff was very friendly & helpful, the room was very clean & quiet, & it made for a nice evening in the Big Apple. This hotel is reasonably priced for being so convenient to all things in the theater district & we would definitely stay there again.

Very good value

We had a very pleasant experience. Location is very convenient. Parking is included which makes it an excellant value. Evening staff (Front Desk) was knowledgable and very helpful. They gave us information about Broadway plays that saved us a lot on the tickets. We were leaving in the morning for meetings and did not have much interaction with the morning/ day staff. They extended our check out time to 2:00PM with out hassle.

Great weekend

This Hotel might not be a 5 five star but for the price we paid, It sure is a 5 star. Free parking, clean room, friendly staff and 4 blocks away from Time square is all we needed. I will recommend this place to friends and family and will be back. Thank you.
