“Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

As others have noted, the location is wonderful-particularly if you are in New York to take in a show and the usual tourist sights. I took a dear friend and her two teenagers to the city for the first time and this hotel worked out very well- The room was a typical size for Manhattan and the king size bed was comfortable ( the kids were happy to have sleeping bags on the floor instead of spending an extra fifty dollars for two beds) It was clean and the staff was very pleasant, though it definitely could use an update on style and carpeting etc.
We were so busy we didn't spend much time in the room and didn't use the restaurant but it looked good! I also got the impression the lounge was popular and fun- though again we didn't have a chance to check it out. I would have no problem staying here again or recommending it, though it is not my first choice.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room even on a higher floor to minimize street noise at night. Remember this is th...

Right near Time Square and a couple places to catch a play. In easy walking distance to the Rock and Central Park. Staff was nice and attentive. room was small but this is NYC all the rooms are small and the place was clean. Bar on the second floor was good for a drink but AVOID THE RESTAURANT ON THE FIRST FLOOR. Hotel Solid 4/5

Room Tip: alot of the lower rooms look in to a brick wall 11th and above you should be good

Of course, the location can't be beat if you are wanting to stay near times square! The staff were friendly and helpful. The decor is very modern, which I liked. The rooms are a bit small, but it in on times square! The placement of the TV is very weird, but there is so much to do within easy walking distance you won't care about the TV! Overall, we liked it quite a lot!

Just returned from a four night stay at The Time. From the minute I booked, I contacted the hotel for advice, directions etc and EVERY time the response was super fast!! SO courteous and always helpful. We arrived and were greeted at the door. Our luggage was taken to our room and all we needed was to check in. Every member of staff we encountered was super helpful and smiley. We got to our room and a bottle of wine and welcome note awaited us - which was so special. We were in a twin double. It is a boutique hotel so not masses of wardrobe space but plenty for two people for four nights! There was also a shelving unit and a dressing table/desk with a flat screen tv on the wall above it. Double shower, sink and lovely toiletries provided. Housekeeping was exceptional - rooms cleaned and changed every day and a lovely knock at the door each evening to check all was ok! There is a mini bar - but I needed to take meds with a milky drink each morning and they were fine about my keeping fresh milk in the fridge - even offering to move some items should I need more space! You're a block away from Times Square so unless you're on one of the very top floors you won't get a 'view' - but considering you only sleep in your room it would be wasted..... and the location is TREMENDOUS! I genuinely couldn't fault this hotel - yes it is in need of a refurb decor- wise but it is such a popular hotel I don't know when that could happen. It certainly didn't detract from our stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it is lovely, but it is the staff that make this place so exceptional. Fabulous!

Room Tip: We stayed in a twin double for two people. Brilliant!

The Time Hotel is right across the Ambassador Theatre where you can enjoy Chicago (the musical), so it is really convenient to cross the street and watch a classic broadway musical. You can walk to Time Square, the subway, the corner coffee shop (Bene) and a lot of fabulous restaurants in literally minutes. The reception staff is young, cool and really helpful. We had the pleasure of bumping into Griffin, a long time service employee, who is joyful, polite and the epitomy of a wondeful human being and New Yorker.
The rooms are small but clean and modern. Wi-fi is free in the reception area. We will definitely be back.

I made reservations for this hotel for an upcoming trip. I stopped in to check if I could see a room. I immediately was greeted by Jack at the desk and upgraded my reservations to a king room. He then asked the manager Betty if she could show me a room and she did. The room was perfect for the type I needed. Jack was very friendly and welcoming and told me to contact him if there was anything at all that I needed. Will be definitely staying here. The location is great and is in the heart of Times Square. Everything is very close by.
