We had 5 nights at The Element and overall i can recommend this eco friendly hotel. The reception staff are efficient and very friendly and the rooms are clean and tidy. Our view was a real disappointment though, overlooking the side of the Port Authority bus station. Everyone talks about the lift situation and there is a valid reason for... More

We stayed at this Hotel during our first visit to New York (actually September 2013). Lovely modern hotel, spacious (for New York) room with mini kitchen, fridge, sink, microwave etc in the room. We had fantastic views of the Empire State building and also the Hudson River. Beautifully clean room. Hotel facilities were excellent and breakfast was good although recommend... More

I was in the city for two days and spent just one night at the Element. Location was excellent, Very close to Time Square and all the activities in the city. Nice clean room. Welcoming staff. The only issues were: 1. Wait time for the elevators 2. The shower's drain was clogged so water raised up while standing in the... More

Based between 8&9th Avenues on 39th Street West this is a great location for Times Square and the surrounding area. Central Park is 20 blocks away and Penn Station 5 blocks. It is excellent value for money and whilst the rooms aren't huge they aren't little boxes either with good size bathrooms and showers and a little kitchen area and... More

Great for Eco conscience travelers, and just fine for those who aren't. Hotel doesn't have some hotel staples, like in room bottled water, little shampoo and soap bottles. We stayed in a suite which was spacious(by NY standards) and well appointed with dishwasher, two stove burners, half size fridge. Bed was big and soft with pillows of varying firmness. Bathrooms...

I have stayed at other Element locations in Colorado and Texas, and they both had in common spacious, calm/contemporary lobbies with adjacent business areas. Overall ambience of those locations was calm, contemporary, and modern. This location's lobby was a chaotic and noisy area most of the time, and the business center could only be reached by running the noisy gauntlet... More

After all the positive reviews, I had good expectations for my recent stay at the hotel, but I was disappointed. After a long flight from Europe, I was ready for my vacation to begin, but check-in was a zoo with no easy way to line up and took a long time. When I arrived, the lobby was crowded with guests...

Stayed here for 4 nights in April. NYC isn't exactly the cheapest city in the world when it comes to booking a hotel room but Element was reasonably priced and great value for money. Decent sized rooms, which were also very clean and presentable. Breakfast was free, though rather busy and the WI-FI was also free and very quick. Staff... More

The bed and bathroom and breakfast are rooms are not great. Unless you want to sit on the bed to eat your meal the large fridge, cooktop, microwave and dishwasher?! are useless. Our room was crammed with mostly useless furniture. No shelves or drawers to unpack and no space for suitcases without taking up limited seating space. Very noisy air... More

Very convenient location to everything you need. Port Authority, Subway, food, etc. It's far enough from the madness of Time Square but still close that you can get to in just a few minutes of walking. The staff was fantastic and extremely helpful. The room was clean and the bed heavenly (as the name says). Best above all is that... More
