The only good thing about this hotel is a location

Hotel was clean with very comfortable beds. Close to subway for local travel. Older hotel, living room could use an update but great place to lay your head.

Hotel is located at a prime location. The size of the room is excellent compared to the size of other hotels I have stayed at. It's a bit dated but serves my purpose of bed and bathroom with generous amount of space. Will definitely stay again.

During my stay we ate in the room. I saw some movement and it turned out to be a mouse!! We were staying in a higher floor so it's safe to assume that the lower floors had the same problem too. The hotel staff were courteous and addressed our needs. It's a shame because the hotel has an excellent location.

This hotel was in a good location. The room was large. the Beds were comfortable. There was a huge walk-in closet. The bathroom was spacious and the shower adequate. There was a tub. In all a pleasing hotel, with good staff. The rooms need a little TLc, i.e. paint on the doors was chipping, but it was very comfortable.

The location can't be beat: two blocks away from the Central Park; easy access to just about anything in Manhattan. An older hotel, a bit outdated, but comfortable, clean, quiet and reasonably-priced (2 adults and 2 kids). Needed to pay extra for Wi-Fi - be aware.

Price is not worth the stay. The staff members were rude. 1. The front desk guy gave us a broken down room, rips on the dirty carpet, dirty walls and mirrors. I just didn't want any problems as I was with my niece and nephew and exhausted from our road trip. 2. We asked this older man (I guess the concierge since he stood at a podium) where we can buy water, he pointed us to a room where there were vending machines. So my niece and I go in there then he shortly followed us and stood in the room with us as if we've never used a vending machine before. Creepy and untrusting of 2 women, I guess?! 3. This same concierge (so creepy) asked us when we checked out which room we stayed in. I gave him the number thinking he was going to get our check out going but he grabbed some keys and went up the elevator. I guess to check out if we damaged the disgusting room they gave us- which we didn't. I already gave the hotel my credit card for accidentals so I don't understand the urgency of trying to show us that he's "on to us". Unprofesssional and rude and frankly- racist hotel.

Very old construction, terrible bathrooms, the only thing good about the hotel is it's location

Great place to stay especially if you enjoy historical things.

Location and staff - probably the best. Even for NYC standards the room was OK with a sense of been sleeping in a horror-movie like experience.

Unfortunately, I won't be returning to this hotel. The hotel room I received wreaked of cigarettes, old, and musty. The bathtub had pubic hairs all over it. The room had roaches and spiders in it. I've never seen a huge roach like I did that night returning from dinner. The sofa bed was supposed to slept on by my father but he just couldn't because it smelled horrid. The windows are paper thin therefore I could hear everything going on outside - very hard to sleep. I was excited about the stay and location but the actual room was horrible.

This is the place for you...very large, comfortable and homey.

Sky high New York prices landed us here. The location was great. Hotel badly needs upgrading. You pay for internet, a definite negative in this age. Great parking rate if you have a car but getting to their garage from the hotel with their instructions is a gauntlet of heavy traffic to a garage with the same name as two others that won't accept you and send you to the next one, then the next. No one explained. Just a paper thrust at you.

Central & close to everything! Clean & comfortable.

I never fill out these forms, but can't help it in this case. I've been traveling for more than 40 years and have never had as bad of a hotel experience. It started with my arriving to check in at 2:15 PM, and they made me wait for 30 minutes. Dirty from top to bottom, with peeling paint, a non-draining bathroom sink, dirty medicine cabinet, soap scum in the tub and someone else's hair on the shower walls, a main bathroom light that was burnt out, electrical outlets falling from the wall, no grounded three-prong plugs in the room, a safety chain that fell off the door, an actual old-fashioned key in the safe that didn't make me feel so safe, a remote control for the TV that had no back on it so that the batteries fell out, carpets that did not look clean, a room phone that did not work for nearly 24 hours, a totally stained ironing board pad, filthy elevators, and noisy-noisy-noisy -- even by New York standards of noisy. I will never stay at that hotel again. Unacceptably overpriced and extremely poor quality in every way. Management should be ashamed.

I typically stay at Marriott or Hilton hotels, however for a day trip to NYC I opted save a few $ and go with a "boutique hotel". Salisbury was not inexpensive (over $300/night) and was very disappointing. Parking is a challenge with no valet, you have to "find the independent garage" one block over with no signs! Check-in was flawless, however upon opening the room door it was apparent we were in a 2 star hotel. Couch had "stains" and there were 2 window air conditioners...WoW! Had not seen one of them since my childhood days! Bathroom sink was missing the drain stopper and the TVs were first generation flat screens! Spend the extra $$ for a name brand hotel!

The Salisbury Hotel is in a great location. It is very close to Central Park and an easy walk to Times Square. The staff is very friendly. The hotel is very dated though. Paint is chipping and wall paper is peeling in many places. The staff does a good job of keeping rooms and walkways clean, but they can only do so much with a place that is in great need of updating. The rooms are above average in size and have large closets.

We arrived at about 3:30 in the morning and the staff couldnt have been nicer. Great location and convienience to subway was excellent. Room was a lot biggerthan we imagined. An overall pleasant stay

Close to many sights in Manhattan. Not new but has character. Rooms are very big for NYC. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. The price was very reasonable considering location and size of rooms. I would definitely stay here again.

the room was just OK, loved the 17th floor, bad electrical outlet, ran on extision cords, no WiFi,
