“Room with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Our first time at this hotel. The location a block from Penn Station is convenient to Amtrak and subway. The New Yorker has kept its original deco appeal, with modern amenities. This is a busy hotel, but never had an issue with elevators taking too long to arrive. Staff helpful and courteous, Security staffed at the elevators to verify guests. A good sign. My room 35th floor had a city view, with the Empire State building in its full splendor. We had a room with 2 doubles and it appeared larger then the single king bed. I probably would have given 5 stars but we did run out of hot water several times, during our stay. We tried running the water longer in hopes of a solution, but felt it to be wasteful. Additionally the bathroom was quite small.

We stayed in the New Yorker from the 11th June to 15th June, visiting the hotel with our friends for our friends 50th Birthday. The Hotel was in the most fantastic location,Ideal for just about everything we wanted to do, Empire State, 9/11 Central Park, Intrepid, Evening Dinner Cruise and many many more wonderful sights that we visited.. The hotel itself is kept spotlessly clean, the beds were really comfortable and house keeping could not be faulted. The room itself was quite small but to be honest the only time we spent in our room was to sleep !!!!! The front desk and security staff were also really helpfull, Tony checked us all in and was excellent throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble. We had our breakfast every morning in the Tic Tock Diner and could not be faulted at all, the food was always, always excellent, the only problem we had in there none of us could decide what to eat each morning. I would highly recommend the Hotel New Yorker, we had a wonderful stay there .

Right in the centre of New York, handy for everything. Rooms are small compared to what is classed as average but clean and stylish. Staff were very helpful but did not always give the right information so maybe need to keep more update on the local area. Would benefit by supplying a kettle in the rooms but apart from that a lovely hotel. Would stay there again.

What can say of my New Yorker Hotel (NYH) experience, other than excellent, excellent, excellent! My family and I stayed there from June 12 through June 17, 2013, and throughly enjoyed our stay. The front desk, security and other hotel personnel were very exceptional. Our party of four were booked into room 3617, a spacious room with two double beds, a desk, two sofa chairs and table, which looked out to an extremely stunning view of The Chrsyler and Empire State buildings. The room had a safe, the bathroom was more than adequate, the air conditioning worked extremely well, and the beds were very comfortable! The room was also exceptionally clean, and I must commend the household staff for cleaning our room daily despite our late departures most days.

In terms of location, The NYH is location central due to its proximity to The Empire State Building, Times Square, the theater district, and many more tourist destinations. Should note that the hotel is next to the subway, numerous bus stops, the Pennsylvania Train Station, and Madison Square Gardens. Very, very convenient.

Overall, it was great stay, and I would like to thank Mohammed for making it a memorable one. We will stay at The NYH again when in town, and will absolutely recommend it to our relatives and friends.

Rooms are small with basic amenities, but the proximity to trains, metro, main attractions etc makes this a good choice if you don't want to spend a fortune. The front desk team was superb in assisting us to sort out a double booking. It would have been great to have coffee/ tea facilities in the room as some of the other Wynfham hotels have.

Just returned from The New Yorker. Lovely old american style decor. Hotel check in quick and efficient, room small but adequate, great view of empire state. Room cleaned daily and was spotless. Staff helpful, especially the lady concierge (sorry didnt get her name) went out of her way to help with travel back to airport. Location great. Tick Tock diner, good food and service. I would stay again.

Room Tip: High floor, quieter and better views
