This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Old hotel with the worst customer service in New York We arrived 10am off a 26hr flight (with no sleep) in May 2014 and were refused early check in. Explained our situation and that we were sick and tired and would be so grateful for early check in to any... More

The location is fantastic. Literally around the corner from the empire state building. Everything else was so walkable: Rockefeller, MoMA, New York Public Library, Times Square, Grand Central, Penn Station, Union Square. Since so little time was spent at the hotel it was fine for what we wanted: clean, central and the staff were friendly

I had a pre-paid reservation through Hotels.com, and the price was significantly less than the "rack rate" listed on the hotel's web site. The hotel is very conveniently located near a subway station. The neighborhood is pretty typical for NYC - noisy and crowded. The staff was very friendly, and checking in and out was a breeze. I had booked... More

I booked a reservation at the Stanford for a last minute trip to NY, because its price and location. When we got there, the people in the front desk were very nice. But everything changed once I got into the room. It's important to say that my booking was on April and I had finished my last chemotherapy 5-6 weeks... More

This place has really nice rooms (if you take the club rooms. the standard size is a little small), with spacious and clean bathrooms. But the best part of it is the location. their coffee shop is really small but I am willing to forgo it because the hotel is right in the centre of the city. times square, the... More

We have stayed at the Stanford Hotel quite a few years ago and I swore I would not want to go back. However, this time was different. The rooms have been updated and for the price it was perfect. My husband and I only stayed one night June 18/19. It's location is ideal. Close to Penn Station, Herald Square, Macy's,... More

Ok when us girls first checked in, we were a little nervous ... Lobby and entrance is nothing grand. Our room however was amazing! This is NOT an average hotel folks, there were 4 of us and we had plenty of room! A separate sitting area, a beautiful large bathroom with a shower on one end and soaker tub on... More
