Booked and paid for a room two months in advance for 2 double beds.

I was a bit nervous because the hotel was rated less than an 8 and although there were some good reviews, there were also really bad ones. My experience is one of the good ones. The room is clean and nicely decorated, quiet ( not one of the front facing bedrooms can be why..not sure), bed's comfortable, the bathroom's clean... More

Fab place to lay your weary head after a day sightseeing! Clean & cheerful with friendly helpful staff! Great on a budget with lots of food options very close by. My pre requisite is always clean bed & hot shower & we had both ++ Jo, Nick & Charlie (Singapore)

I took my mom to NY to celebrate her birthday for the weekend. We were on a budget and found the Bedford on Travelocity. I was worried about the quality, since I am used to staying at 4- and 5-star hotels. We booked a room with a king (two twin beds cost extra) and were told "it was noted." We... More

Nice small hotel decently priced in a very good location. Very attentive and pleasant staff. The room , even if a bit outdated (and in need of renovation) was relatively large and the bed was very comfortable. Very recommended if you do not plan o spend too much time in the room

Prior to arrival I called the hotel, leaving a voice mail, asking for reservation confirmation. No call back. Room was reserved for 3 but had only beds and towels for two. Four and 1/2 hours after our arrival they STILL hadn't corrected this situation. Worst part was the 2 inch long cockroach crawling around on my cup and tooth brush,... More

We booked this hotel on the recommendation of the tour advisor and it was worth every penny we paid. We had decided to visit New York for our 27th wedding anniversary, i had emailed the hotel in advance and on arrival the reception was fully aware that we were celebrating our anniversary and upgraded us straight away. We had a... More

We stayed at this hotel because of its great location two blocks from Grand Central Station. Unfortunately, we were dismayed to encounter two roaches. The first was in the middle of the night in the bathroom. It was running around the glass and toothbrush just above the sink. The second was in the bathtub when we woke up. We took... More
