The hotel is old, but I found my room clean and comfortable. It was not a big room but it fit 2 people ok. The location is great, right across Madison Square Garden and we could find the essentials in the surroundings (groceries, transportation, pharmacy etc) Paid internet and breakfast but sometimes you can get a discount when booking your...

As hotels go, you ca't get much bigger or more central than Hotel Pennsylvania, standing across from Madison Square Garden and a block away from Macy's on 7th Ave, and The Empire State building just around the corner. It's definitely seen better days in terms of decor, although it has been registered online as undergoing renovation for many years (I... More

I was really hesitant about booking here after reading other reviews, but it was the only thing in my price range. I'm glad I did. No...it's not luxurious, but if that's what you want, you're going to be paying a whooole lot more then what this place is. ANY hotel in NYC is going to be more expensive then it's... More

Nice lobby, big queue at check-in, room average, great location !!!, deposit 100 $ mandatory, but Maria didn't give me a receipt, it seemed weird so I came back and told her, but she seemed that she didn't remember that I gave her the money in cash. After a 30 minutes debate, slowly she started to remember, returned me my... More

This is the fourth time I have stayed and the hotel always proves to be clean and comfortable. Wifi is expensive and I had crap connectivity. The queues for check in are to long and slow and staff not always the most helpful.

Do not stay here. I paid about $160 a night for a room worth less than $50!! The bathroom was 2x3 meters (if even) and the bathroom door was too big for the frame so didn't close. There were fruit fly type things all in my shower & on the ceiling, and I had to get someone to call an... More

I know reviews have been varied for this but our experience was very good. We arrived late and jetlagged straight off the plane from London, to find I had got the date wrong and booked the following night. It was busy, we had no booking but Kenneth on the night team spent nearly an hour making sure we still got... More
