Convenient for Comic-Con

Usually I stay at the Yotel for New York Comic Con, but this year I was splitting the room with a friend, so we decided to try out the Travel Inn instead. In terms of cleanliness and convenience, the room was great. Compared to other New York hotels, it was definitely more affordable. The street noise was a problem, until I put in earplugs. My only complaint is that I requested an inner room overlooking the pool, was told that was fine, and then was given a room over the street. Overall, I was pleased with my experience and will stay here again next year.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to 44 1/2 on 44th and 10th for brunch (make a reservation). The food was delicious, the staff was great, and the pop music playlist had us all dancing in our seats.

A bit of a schlep, but a lot of saving

While six to eight blocks from the center of the theater district, you do save money on this hotel because of that. Also, this part of 42nd St. used to be avoided because it was scuzzy. Not so anymore. In fact, there are some high-end clubs and theaters moving into the area. The staff were very accommodating.

Times Square/theaters

Travel Inn is within walking distance to Times Square on 42nd street. Subway & bus terminal are about 1 1/2 blocks from this hotel. The king size bed and huge walk-in shower were a +. Only drawback was the fan control had no A/C or heat control: fan would only blow warm air. Could see the pool and the air was cool in the hallway. I recommend this hotel for $250/night price.
