“Unique, sophisticated, and always welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I stayed at The Time this week for business. The Time Hotel is the place I used to stay a few years ago when other models and I worked the NY Auto Show. It's a great location, and we loved their lounge. It's one of the best martini lounges in Times Square. In fact, it's almost too good because it's the kind of place you just stop in on the way to your room and then realize 3 hours later you're still there and have made 5 new friends...including the bartender!
With similar atmosphere and unique qualities as the nearby W Hotel, the Time is a better choice. Yes, it's a bit smaller because it's a boutique hotel, but this also gives it a more personal touch. Oh, and it's about 40% less per night than the W.
Oh, and the gym is just what you need. The stylish yet affordable restaurant, Serafina, on the first level is open for breakfast through dinner.

stayed here because of proximity to theatre district and times square. very close to restaurants (both tourist areas like times square and more local areas like 8th and 9th ave) and entertainment on broadway.

staff were very helpful with organising transfers and also room requests etc. special mention to staff member "Jack" who helped us out a few times.

Right next to Times Square, lots going on right on your doorstep. Within walking distance of everything! As usual for NY the room was fairly small, but was very well apointed, including TV and Bose radio. The bed was large and very comfortable. The walk in shower was amazing, and there was the usual selection of toiletries.

There is no free wifi in the room, but you can connect for free in the reception or bar.

Our only negative was that we were on the 4th floor, at the front of the hotel, and it was quite noisy (NY is definitely a 24 hr City!), and smoke from the patrons of the hotel and theatre next door, did get into our room via the A/c.

Fantastic location beside Times Square! Restaurants, bars and shops right on your doorstep! Within walking distance of Central park and Macys and Empire state building is only about 10-12min walk away! Would highly recommend. Hotel has everything you need and although rooms were a bit small it was perfectly fine for a four night stay as being in New York we spent hardly any time in the hotel!

We were looking for something near Time Square that was fairly resonably priced and with a good rating...we found it with The Time Hotel. It's location on the edge of Time Square made everything very accessible but we were out of the hustle and bustle enough to enjoy a quiet night sleep. The hotel itself was clean and had all the amenities we needed. I am planning on returning next summer and will definitely stay here again. Also check out the restuarant Da Marino's next door for an amazing Italian meal with fab service (the restuarant was featured in a scene from Sex and the City too!!!).

Room Tip: We stayed on the 16th floor (top) and had a room that didn't face Time Square 9we could see it o...

Fantastic location just off Times square. Grey line bus stop is 5 minutes away. Rooms are small, a little tired, but clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay.
Air con was good.

Telly was good, mini bar was expensive (you can get free cold water from the gym). Would not like to stay for longer than a couple of days as it was so cramped. We were on a low floor, but it was not too noisy. The little gym was great and has a water cooler and toilet. but no cross trainer just 1 treadmill, stair master and 2 bikes along with some weights.

All the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. The bar next door was nice. We never tried the restaurant or breakfast as you can get this in many of the nearby cafe's or diners for less than half the price.

The hotel was vey nice clean. It was very small rooms but its New York. Had a resturant on the first floor and a club on the 2nd or 3rd floor. Comfortable bed. Not a good view. But had an excellent location. At the corner is Times Square. Check in was easy we book through Orbitz. Parking is a mess but it is a place right across the street and you can have it validated. Bathroom could have been cleaner. But overall good trip.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view.
