Best option from Penn Station to 7th & 52nd?

My wife, daughter & I are arriving via Amtrak in September and are staying at the Sheraton Times Square. Should we take a taxi to the hotel or is there a better option?

Also, can we buy one Metro Card for the subway and use it for all three of us or should we each have our own?

Thanks

The E to 7th Avenue (& 53rd Street) will let you out right on the doorstep of the Sheraton, but the 1 to 50th Street (& Broadway) will only be a couple of short blocks away. So either of these will work. The E will be on the 8th Avenue end of Penn Station and the 1 will be on the 7th Avenue end.

Although I'd personally choose the uptown E, if you happen to find yourself at the 7th Avenue end of Penn Station, the uptown 1 will be fine as well.

Thanks MoreFF.

We'll each have a small suitcase and/or duffle bag. Will that be an issue on the train?

This won't be a problem on the subway. FWIW, the lettered trains, such as the E, have somewhat wider cars than the numbered trains, such as the 1.
