I had a last minute business trip to NYC in late September - a brutal time to find an affordable room. The Time had availability and a good rate, and now I know why. The hotel is undergoing a MAJOR renovation. I am not going to rush back until it's complete.
When I made my rezo, I had no idea the hotel was under construction, and given the level of work being done, they should have disclosed that info.
Great location in Times Square - close to Subway and a few blocks from the fray
Staff is really friendly - I had to leave a day early and they didn't charge me for the cancellation
I was in a newly renovated room - relatively spacious by NYC standards
Construction is BRUTAL. Really, the hotel should just close and finish construction. Almost all the rooms on my floor were getting worked on - plastic on carpet in the hallways, loud construction pretty much all day.
The Lobby is pretty much shut down with the exception of a makeshift bell desk
The construction disrupts the elevators and the wait to get downstairs was 10+ minutes at times.
Although my room was renovated, the quality of the furnishings isn't great - for example, the desk chair broke when I sat in it. The hotel was very apologetic and replaced it immediately
