“Great People!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at The Time, 5 nights, first room resembled a postage stamp. Nowhere to hang clothes, not even a hook or a frame around a door to make do! Eventually, room 3! Was fabulous. The rooms are a little tired and well used but clean and comfortable. The staff made it for us! Friendly (well, except for one receptionist who was a little frosty). Josh the porter was fantastic. Superb location. Come on The Time! Get some hooks and hangers in your rooms!

We stayed here for our short break to NYC.
Didn't have a great start as hotel had organised car from airport & we had to dispute the price quoted - this certainly put a dampener on our arrival. The customer service at this point was not the best.
We went for a drink in the bar to relax but as it was late evening the bar was winding down (thought this was the town that never sleeps - it was way before midnight) the highlight of this was watching a mouse running round.
The room was very small & boiling hot - December & we had to open the windows. Our Bose radio didn't work & despite requesting it be repaired it took two further requests to get it sorted.There is no storage at all so bags have to hang around & as its so small they do get in the way.
Shower was powerful & hot.
Location was the best.
We didn't eat here - after seeing a mouse running around it was off putting.
The staff were all pleasant (apart from 1st night)

First of all, the location is fantastic. Steps from Times Square, just a few blocks from Rockefeller Center and a short walk to the Subway. The staff was also very friendly. But, like some other commenters, the rooms look better in pictures than in person. We actually had to switch rooms because the first room we could not get the temp below 80 degrees. The second was warm as well. When we mentioned it to the staff they said to open the window. That's what we ended up doing the entire time...in December! It was the only way to keep the room below 80. Not sure what was up with their heaters. Our second room had moldy/broken tile and a dirty bench. The bathroom did smell clean like bleach but I can't help but think that it was just surface cleaned since there was still mold in the shower. Overall, the location and price are great. I think there is room for improvement in the rooms themselves.

The location is fabulous, in the heart of the theatre district with bars and restaurants just a few steps away. Directly across the street is the Actor's Chapel and we attended an organ concert there late one night. A little further down you find Lillie's a great little place, and on the corner is the food emporium. Also, although the room is small, it was considerably nicer than what I've had to cope with at other hotels in the area. The staff are friendly and very helpful and it's great to have a restaurant and bar onsite. The price was also very competitive considering the time of year and location.

Room Tip: Next time I stay I plan to ask for a room on a higher floor.

I spent ten days here from mid November. Great location in Midtown for everything. The staff were very friendly and always very helpful for a first time visit to New York. Serafina's restaurant was great also downstairs. My only regret was having to leave. The rooms were a bit small and looked better in the photos than reality, but I only spent time in the room to sleep as there was too much to do outside. Overall would certainly go back for a second visit.

Room Tip: Rooms were a bit small and would probably be more suited for couples/singles.

GREAT LOCATION!!!! Literally on timesquare. The rooms are very small tho but that is something that you need to expect when coming to the Big Apple. Very close to everything. The AC was not working in our room so they moved us to another room where the AC was working and gave us breakfast vouchers to the restaurant downstairs. (nice gesture)
TIP: Im really anal about looking around the hotel and make sure there are no broken things before and after I leave because the last thing I want is the hotel charging me for something I did not break. The previous room we had, had a few scatches on the wall the door lock was also busted and the blow dryer was not working so I made sure to let them know. Otherwise, staff is really friendly and knowleadgeable. :)
