“Good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Hotel is in a good location and very busy. Rooms could do with updating, particularly the bathrooms.The diner is great for breakfast.
As students live on the lower floors the lobby is busy and security high but it's perfect for a NYC short break

Stayed December 2013, traveled as a couple

This was my first time to New York and was recommended this hotel from the travel agents. Prior to coming I was put off some of the reviews but I can honestly say there was no need to be. This hotel is perfect for those who want to explore the city. It is in a fantastic location whether your trip is for shopping or exploring the city.
Any requests we had they were dealt with straight away. The staff were so helpful with helping us with our bearings and suggesting places to eat and where to go. If you are looking for a good base in Manhattan this is definitely your hotel. It is not overpriced and the rooms were not bad all.
I am not one for staying at the same hotel twice but I would come back here because it is just a perfect base. One thing I always look at is the customer service and this hotel delivered on that. I would like to make reference to Carlos in Security whose service was fantastic and the concierge team who were always happy to help.

Stayed five nights on 34th floor in a one bedroomed suite - it was huge - with the Empire State Building directly opposite our bedroom and a large balcony off the lounge. Just lovely and so reasonably priced. Excellent location for accessing all the sights and a 24 hour diner plus a smart restaurant on site. I slept on a sofa bed in the lounge and it was amazingly comfortable. Two enormous walk in wardrobes and really well sound proofed, didn't hear any other guests during the entire time. I suppose if I was being really picky I'd say the bathroom was a bit dated but the shower was fine and always hot and towels and toiletries were replenished daily. We were there during the heat wave but the air conditioning was excellent. Loved this hotel.

I came here with friends for 4 nights and we were aiming to be out a lot (which we were) this was a great place for us as it seemed every cab we got was $10 to and from. Fantastic location and really next door to Madison Sq and we did a lot of walking to other destinations such as the shopping and to the bottom of the Empire State Building.
Rooms are small, but as I said, as a base fine and we had 3 of us to a room with 2 double beds, just enough space for all the shoes and bags.
It was a little run down in the public areas and the rooms- and the bathroom needed up dating, but a refurb is happening at the moment (which will most likely impact what was a VERY reasonably priced hotel). And for the price and location it wasnt in anyway bad!
Hopefully the upgrade going on now will not make this affordable hotel into something more exclusive.
ideal for friend trips, or those wanting to just sleep and dress in the hotel room.
There is a diner next door, which is OKAY - one of the least interesting meals we had, was fine for a hangover boost pre-shopping.

Recently stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms on the 8th floor of the hotel and thought it was outstanding. From a design perspective, I loved how the light sconces have picked up on the overall art deco and traditional design elements of the hotel. I also liked how the wall sconces and the desk lamp were similar in desig and tied the room together very nicely…Even the design of the drawer pulls on the night stands and dresser worked with the overall design…

I worked for an hour or so at the desk and it is perfect sized and the chair extremely comfortable. The bed was firm, the linens were high-quality and I love the beaded leather headboard. The size of the room was very generous by NYC standards and the stall shower and pedestal in the bathroom were great…I’m less of a TV guy but wow…the room comes complete with a sizable flat screen TV. The bathroom linens were the right combination of soft but absorbent.

Overall, the room, and whole experience at the hotel, was very impressive.

A great rate allowed us to upgrade to the Tower Suite, which is super roomy with a separate livingroom and bedroom, each with its own tv. Stayed a week. What we loved about room 4009....
-Amazing views out all windows.(see pictures)
-Super comfy bed.
-Wonderful housekeeping staff kept it spotless and always greeted us warmly.
-Big bathtub for a soak after a long day.
-Location location... not only for walking, but for getting anywhere in the city. Cross-town bus stops across the street... ACE lines downstairs and 2,3&4 lines a block away.
-Tower suite has a roomy 'fridge with some drinks which were no charge... and they kept the coffee pods coming as we went through 6 or 8 a day!
-Free internet was good.
-Elevator to the 40th floor was amazingly fast and we rarely had to wait more than a minute max.
-Security to the elevator (don't understand why this bothers some... It's NYC... good to know that people on your floor are actually staying there.)
-It was snowing and the heating was GREAT and very quiet.... also loved that the living area and bedroom had separate controls so we could keep the bedroom cool for sleeping while keeping the rest warm.
-Included breakfast on 39th floor was good enough to get you going with good variety and a little protein (cheese).
Disappointments:
-They knew it was a big birthday for hubbie, but acknowledged in no way.
-Unfriendly woman at the breakfast room check-in (but really helpful guy working the room.
-Lost all hot water for several minutes (per other warnings on this site)... it only hapened to us once during the week, but once is too much. It is clearly a problem at the hotel, so fix it already! This is the main reason for 4 instead of 5 stars.

All in, we had an amazing stay at the New Yorker Hotel. It's charming and old-world and the tower suites make you feel like you're at home. We really could have happily stayed a month. Only hope we can return one day.

Room Tip: Scaffolding outside of some of the hotel... call ahead to make sure you get a room where there is no...

I stayed at the New Yorker a few years ago now. This hotel is in a great location! The rooms are very nice and have everything you basically need for your stay. We did not spend very much time in our room at all as we were out every single day sight seeing!! Loved New York and will be staying again hopefully :-))
