My partner and I went to New York last summer for 5 nights. Having done some research on various hotels and read numerous reviews, we found The Time at very reasonable rates and went ahead and booked. The location was a big factor for our decision, as well as the price, although we were initially concerned about the size of the rooms, as a lot of reviews had commented on this.
Upon arriving, we weren't really paying attention in the taxi from the airport, so when we first stepped outside the hotel and walked to the end of the street, we were shocked to find how close we were to times square, it was literally less than a 30 second walk.
The hotel itself was very good for the price which we paid. We were greeted by the doorman when getting out of the taxi, and met by pleasant staff in the reception area. We were given the key to our room, which I think was on the 14th floor. Entering the room, it was as expected; small. However it was no where near as small as other reviews had made out and we found it to have plenty of room to meet our needs. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was surprisingly spacious and extremely modern.
The initial problem we had in our room was to do with our safe not working, but we rang reception and they were up in no time at all. We did have continued problems with the safe, but the staff were extremely happy to try and sort the problem, which they did.
I really couldn't find any faults with this hotel at all. For the price we paid we didn't expect a lot, but we were very pleasantly surprised by everything; from the location to the staff and the rooms.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and would not think twice about staying here again. In fact, I probably will be returning to New York in the summer and will be staying here again.
