Recent guest reviews

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.

Tremendous experience hotel clean and across from the Garden. Concierge was very helpful giving us a plan to see the sights. After the game we even met a celebrity in the lobby Treach from naughty by nature. Highly recommended!

This hotel is in a great location in midtown, close to so many places tourists would want to see. There is also a Big Bus Tour stop right across the street, and subway stops nearby. My room had a fantastic view of the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden. The restaurant off the lobby had excellent food and service. The Tick Tock diner has good food, but service was a little slow and prices were a little high for a diner.

Had a quick trip to this hotel, booked it at a great discounted rate last minute, and it was pretty easy. It was a block from my office, and they were able to accommodate a check in a few hours early so I could drop my stuff in the room and head to the office. I really didnt do anything other than sleep in the room, but it was comfy enough.

Stayed here to visit "the city" with our daughter who was visiting and to take in the holiday sites. The hotel is in a good central location near Times Square. We were most impressed with the staff - concierge & front desk. They were very helpful with answering our questions and helping us with things like finding parking and storing our luggage. We felt welcome. The hotel is very grand - tall entry, decorated nicely. The rooms are small and the water temperature fluctuated in the shower which is why the 4 rating.

An okay experience for common tourist visiting New York. Nothing impressive. The hotel is old, and it shows.

The room was comfortable. The temperature tended to change a little too much. Shower could definitely be improved. Water temp changed while showering

I stayed here for 4 days. Since I am a platitum member of Orbitz, the hotel upgrade my room. The hotel is located in the 34th street and 8th avenue, where is near the pen station and metro station. You can walk to the time square within 15 mins. So the location is pretty good. The room is comforable but not so quiet.

The staff was helpful, the shower had water pressure and the bed was great! The only disappointment was the halls leading to the rooms looked like they needed a touch-up. Don't want to put too much emphasis on the halls but caused a cause for concern before turning in for the night.

1. Check in - My check in process was not pleasant. An unfriendly man checked me in and I repeatedly asked for him to check into options for upgrading my room. He ignored my request on two different occasions and just handed me my room key and moved on to the next customer. 2. The room - The floor I was on smelled really musty and was not clean. The room is your typical tiny NYC hotel room but the carpet is filthy and there was hair all over the bathroom (including on the towels). 3. Bathroom - absolutely awful. No shelf space to set anything on, no place to put a hand towel, bathtub is reminiscent of a grimy NYC apartment with 40 degree temperature swings without warning. 4. Windows are so poorly sealed that at times it was actually breezy in our room because of the wind outside. 5. I rated my first impression poorly on Orbitz on the night we checked in and soon after received a call from hotel management offering me an upgraded room. I was told by the manager to come to the front desk and ask for her and she would show me their 'executive room'. Well, I went to the front desk and she was nowhere and I asked for her and they went in the back and talked to her. They handed me a room key and told lento to look at the room by myself. The room key they gave me did not work and was to an occupied room so I never actually got a chance to see their upgraded room. If you want the NYC experience of staying in a small grimy apartment, then this is your place!

The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. We were upgraded to a remodeled room (no view) for no extra charge. We stayed for 3 nights and had no problems. The location is prime -- diagonal from Madison Square Garden & within walking distance of the Empire State Building and Macy's. I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

We had a four generation birthday trip to New York… Could not have been any more magical seeing the city at Christmas! The New Yorker hotel is the perfect spot to stay in the city! Thank you for everything!
