Wyndham New Yorker

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

As soon as you check in you will be hit with facility fees of $29 per day PLUS TAX! A shoe box is larger than the size of the room you will be given. Elevators are so slow. When you do get an elevator it will be sweltering hot and full of 20 other sweaty bodies. Save yourself a lot of time, trouble and energy and stay elsewhere!

stayed at the New Yorker over the 4th of July holiday. Hotel is in a great location the staff was friendly and helpful. On site restaurant and CVS across the street. Pipes can be noisy sometimes but overall great hotel.

We really liked the hotel. Great location with easy access to Penn Station, subways and easy walks to all activities. Would stay again

We had a great time and our hotel was close to everything subway and the bus were very close. Great pizza place, Familia across the hotel, best white pizza. . A must visit ... great staff very helpful and very clean room. I would stay here again.

This hotel was so disappointing. The rooms were so small and outdated. The photos were either from an updated, renovated room or photo shopped. Even worse I was charged $30 for a facilities fee for things I never used--- gym, business center, etc. What a rip off! They must be trying to make money for their failing hotel.

A nice hotel with a superb location. Many New York sights are within walking distance, or reachable by the subway that has a station just beneath the hotel with several lines crossing, including one from Jamaica (JFK).Our room on the 31st had a view of the Empire State Building just three blocks away. All these come with a price given the Manhattan location but I think it's totally worth it.

The hotel needs some updating. When I entered the room it was TINY and the bed was so uncomfortable! Also, the carpet was soaking wet. I have no idea why, and the smelled like cat litter! It was disgusting! The bathroom faucet was also making an annoying loud sound every time it was turned on. The staff was inattentive. The lines to check in took over an hour. Overall this place was horrible! Go somewhere else for the price! One night was $499 which was my last night there, a Saturday night. Absolutely ridiculous!

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.
