We had an excellent experience staying in this hotel. Excellent location and clean and contemporary room layout. I had a wonderful experience, especially with the extremely helpful concierge lady (Ms. Onelia Green). I could feel that she did everything she could to efficiently solve my booking problem. I've been traveling around the world a lot, and this lady is the one that stood out. Definitely will come back again!

The New Yorker is close to MSG, Javits Center, Herald Square, Port Authority, and more. It's also a quick cab ride to Union Square, Lower East Side, or Williamsburg Brooklyn. Historic, neat, small, and affordable.

Was charged for a resort fee which we never used the gym the extras. Was told we could not check in till 4 p.m. we arrived in New York at 8 a.m. . We slept in the lobby too we got a hold of Orbitz to fix our problem. Our last day check out was at noon and they turned off our key at 11 a.m. thanks New Yorker

Had two phone conversations with staff before arrival, vety helpful. Very good location off main artery 8th Ave @ 34) yet very quiet. Very well decorated lobby and halls. Good restaurant within. Excellent fitness center; my husband is a marathon runner thought this was the best fitness place he's had at a hotel. Felt secure with the security staff checking people's keys before getting onto the elevators. Half the elevators are express. Just a tad pricey but we will probably stay there GIn.

My wife and I stayed at the New Yorker for four nights we had a great time. We went to a concert at Madison square gardens which is right across the street which was really convenient. Rode the subway down to the 911 memorial and up to the Metropolitan museum of art and central park. The subway entrance right outside the hotel took us where we wanted to go. This was our second time at the New Yorker and we will definitely go again.

Be careful on what you see on the internet in terms of room size/quality - What I booked was completely the opposite of what I received - room was the size of a shoebox and bathroom was super OLD and not real clean looking - shower was terrible.

Gave me a room with a spectacular view of the Empire State Building. Love the convenience of the location - a short walk from Penn Station.

The hotel is close to the subway and convention center. The bathroom was outdated. There wasn't a coffee maker in the room.

The New Yorker is an older hotel in West MidTown that fits the bill of anyone looking for a place to lay their head after they're done running around Manhattan. It's a short walk to pretty much everything: The Javits Center, Madison Square Garden, Times Square, Hudson Yards, and the Theatre District are all within 15 minutes by foot. The staff are excellent, helpful, and courteous, and quick with recommendations for places to see and things to do. The Tick Tock Diner provides decent fare for a reasonable price for MidTown Manhattan. The room I stayed in was a small one-bedroom on the 21st floor. The view was fine, but the bathroom was a little dated. The upper floors have a little bit of a musty smell to them, but nothing nasty given that the building is almost 100 years old. I stayed during the first week of May and was able to do and see quite a bit of New York thanks to my great location.

El personal es despota, poco cordial y poco amable

The overall experience was satisfactory. However, the hotel attendant at the entrance was very rude and did not let us park our car in front of the hotel for just a few minutes to even unload our bags from the car. That first encounter with the hotel staff was really displeasing. The hotel amenities and the appearance is good. It is very centrally located in Manhattan close to a lot of tourist attractions. The inside of the rooms and bathrooms is a bit old and could use some newer stuff.

My room was ready before I arrived and they allowed me to check in a little early. The actual check-in was speedy and the staff very cordial. I also liked how there were security people monitoring the elevator bay and the lobby. The elevators were express for the upper floors so you didn't have to stop intermittently on lower floors either way. The room was smaller than what I imagined but just right for 1-2 people who are out doing activities in the city rather than just lounging in the room. I did wish there were more outlets to charge up my devices. The bathroom was very clean and pristine with fresh towels. I loved the old school knobs for the shower. The flush on the toilet was kinda weak but hey it's an older style in an older hotel. Decided to get the upgraded breakfast deal (which is a voucher for the Tick Tock diner next door). Good quick food/service but I may try a different breakfast spot next time. Overall it was a pretty good experience and I would stay here again.

Street construction was going on all night right outside the hotel. Jackhammering, equipment alarms every time they back up, workers yelling, etc. The hotel should have made us aware of this before booking; I would not have booked here.

Sufficient..Served its purpose. Did not like the extra charge for printing my boarding pass.

This was a family trip myself, 3 kids age 8,13,16 my mom & cousin, we stayed 13 to 18th, it is located in the best spot. I booked 2 rooms. Things you should know resort fee every night $33 per night per room I. Addition No microwave, you can rent a refrigerator per day. There is a great restaurant inside of hotel called Tic Toc the food was really good. Would I come back, yes. But I will be better prepared with my finances, NY was really pricey it was so expensive I told the group we are fasting from 1 meal we will only eat twice a day. It was so expensive when we did eat I to Told the group no drinks no dessert water only.

Weekend visit for boxing match at Garden. Hotel was nice, staff was polite, but located in a very chaotic part of an already chaotic City = impossible to sleep. Shower had two temperatures: burning or freezing. I recommend for very short trips for events at Garden, but more than a night: stay somewhere else.

It's a pretty nice hotel, the room is decent size, bathroom is big enough for you to turn ur body. The only thing I don't like is that I'm on the 8 floors but it's still very noise. I couldn't sleep for 2 days due to the noise from the outside. The last day I didn't sleep at all because on of their customer was walking back and forth above from 1am - 5am. You can clearly hear people flushing their toilet at night. If they can fix the noise problems, I think it's a nice hotel to stays.

The only thing I didn't appreciate was the hotel staff started shampooing carpets on a Sunday morning around 8:00 am, right outside our door and the noise and talk was loud and irritating. Also, a strong scented cleaner was used that smelled like strong potpourri, and it was nauseating when you got off the elevator or opened the hotel room door to leave the room.

Wasn't impressed by this hotel, the lobbey is quite deceiving. Upon arrival, check-in was very slow (not even prime time) and the lady who checked my boyfriend and I in was incredibly rude. After getting a sour taste in our mouths from the beginning, we made the trip to our room. I was astonished how cramped it was. I've stayed in many hotels in NYC, even ones located just down the street and they were almost double the size for the same price (and of better quality). Bathroom was so tiny & extremely outdated (tile chipping, tub had cracks, old short toilet) and wasn't very clean (dirt in crevices, stains in tub, pink stuff dripped on wall, dust/hair in corners of wall molding). We tried out the TickTock diner because it's 24 hours & part of the hotel, & it was downright awful. We waited 20 mins to be acknowledged, despite only having 3 other people eating in the entire restaurant. Food was subpar at best, really expensive for the quality. Another annoying aspect of the hotel was the 9am surprise cleaning interruption. Although checkout is at 12pm, expect to be woken up at 9am by a cleaner knocking intensely at your door until you wake up and tell them to please disregard the morning cleaning. I've never had this happen before & I found it to be very disruptive (though I know it's not the maid's fault, it's the establishment's). In conclusion, I won't be staying at this hotel again - there are so many comparably-priced ones in the area that are so much better in many aspects.

Staff has always been very helpful & very courteous. Each time I've stayed, the rooms have been clean & comfortable. It's location is desirable, for one, because the PENN Station subway is right there, and you can hop on a train conveniently to take you to just about any city attraction in one, and sometimes two or a three train transfers. The higher up your room, the "better" your city view is; however, because of what the city has to offer, the view is relatively minor (at least for me), because we're usually out enjoying all the city has to offer.
