Loved it!

I was nice to the front desk clerk, and was upgraded to a suite! The room was clean, the staff friendly, and the location was excellent...all at an affordable price. I'll for sure be staying here again.

Great location

The hotel has a great location, the room was small but clean. We wanted to get the Tesla Room but it was already taken if you want it you need to call front desk and ask for it ahead of time.

Superb location!

The location of the hotel could not be any better, particularly if you're flying in from Newark. Penn Station is literally across the road and you can see Macey's and the Empire State building when you look down the other way. The hotel is superb - proper New York-style hotel. The rooms are well laid out with plenty of room and with amazing views of the city. Staff were friendly and efficient. Shame they have to charge for baggage storage at 2 dollars a bag as most hotels would offer this free.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Loads of great restaurants a short stroll away and Starbucks just across the road for the essential morning caffeine fix. If you're after something a bit fun either for breakfast, lunch or dinner definitely try the Tick Tock cafe next door to the hotel. Really fun diner with a great menu of good home-cooked fare which will leave you a fair few spare dollars to spend in 5th Avenue.

good location

Hotel is close to lots of food and penn station. Can even walk to times square from here. Staff is friendly but hard to get someone to answer the phone at the front desk. The place is big and clean. Security at night is pretty good. You need to show your room key to get upstairs after 10pm.

Great location, needs an update

It's hard to beat Wyndham New Yorker's location, especially if you're taking the train into Penn Station. Just a block from Penn Station, a few minutes walk to the Javits Convention Center, and an easy stroll to Times Square and the Theater District, you'll have your pick of where to go. Not all of the hotel's floors have been updated since Wyndham aquired the building and it shows. My bathroom was terribly out of date, lacking even counter tops to set a cosmetics bag on. My room was small, but that's standard for New York and didn't really bother me. Staff was all friendly and courteous and the lobby is a gorgeous art deco design.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

While visitors may be attracted to Times Square, head the other direction to Chelsea and The High Line for a beautiful, different perspective of New York.

Great location

We stay here each time we go to New York some of the rooms can be small but you get what you pay for. The staff could not be more helpful and the rooms are cleaned to perfection daily. One thing to be wary of is the hotel diner, it's pricey and food is nothing special eat out!

Location, location, location....

This hotel is a perfect location to do anything in NYC. The best part was access to the Subway as well as walking proximity to many of the touristy things in NYC. The room was small, but I figured in NYC for the price I paid it was "average". The staff was very friendly and courteous and helped us out when we didn't know which way to go. It would have easily been 5 stars if they didn't nickel and dime you in the business center and offered at least one free breakfast in the diner downstairs. I was also told that we were going to get a room with a "view" which I assume in NYC a "view" consists of an office building next door. The location of this hotel and overall feel of the hotel was great, and I will definitely consider staying here again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

I would look at getting a Metrocard for your stay when you come here. The Subway is right downstairs and Penn Station is just a short walk away. Saves you on cab fair even though the speed to which you would get to your destination may be a little longer than it would take in a cab, careful planning and the use of the HopStop App helped.
