I was injured at the Gotham by a piece of metal that was in the padding of the bed. All I asked was for help to get to a minor medical and asked them to pay for the shot. They refused any help, manager was very rude and accused me of jabbing a piece of metal in my back. I... More

Lots of fun! Took Amtrak round trip from upstate. Found a nice hotel using TA. Walked, ate and drank at several places on Saturday and on Sunday we took the LI RR to Belmont. A very easy ride. The train leaves about a half hour after the last race, which is good, too. Brings you right to Penn to catch... More

What an amazing property! Great location, staff was amazing and the balcony off of our room was breathtaking. No matter what the view there is no way you can't enjoy sitting out on your balcony listening to the sounds below!! Can't stop recommending this hotel!

I booked a room in June that sounded just like one I'd stayed in at this hotel in March...sitting area w/couch, terrace, high ceilings. I got a room that was only a bit bigger than the bed. When I complained and asked where the sitting area was, I was told it's the small chair in the corner. The terrace was... More

We stayed at the Gotham in May 2014. Right from the word go we were impressed. The staff were so polite and welcoming, the rooms are gorgeous (especially if you have one with a view on the front!) and they come with your own private balcony. They are a finished to a lovely standard and the quality of everything in... More

Modern, clean , fresh, luxurious with generous sized room and bathroom. No city noise at all in rooms at the back of the hotel. Free WiFi available. The staff were excellent, friendly and very courteous. The location was great on 46th East, just off 5th Avenue and close to a number of New York attractions.

Biggest plus of the hotel is its location near 5th in midtown. All the usual tourist spots are in walking distance. At night sourroundings are a little bit bleak and lifeless, but that's a general midtown issue i guess. We stayed in a Deluxe King room. The room was ok, but nothing special. More on the smallish side (even for... More

We spent a week at the Gotham and found the service and amenities excellent. The hotel is in a fabulous location in easy walking distance of Times Square, Rockafella, Grand Central and of course it's just off 5th and Madison. The bed was huge. We had a balcony with no view and probably wouldn't choose this again as we didn't... More

From the moment of arrival to the time we left we were in great hands at the Gotham Hotel. With a fantastic central location in Mathatten, the hotel was a perfect place for our tourist holiday. Close to 5th Ave and only a couple of blocks from Time Square and Grand Central Station. We couldn't have asked for a better... More
