My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Grand Union back in February for a little over 2 weeks. We are a young couple and were just looking for a cheap hotel in a good location. The location was definitely ideal, only a block and a half from the Empire State Building, subway station less than 100 paces down the street and a 20 minute walk from Times Square. If you're looking for luxury, this is not the hotel for you, the lift was extremely slow and small and we had to wait over 10 minutes one time. The rooms are a decent size but the bed we slept in was old and had a very squeaky mattress. The first week we were there the room was like a sauna and the second week it was freezing, and we had no option to change the temperature, it seemed to all be controlled by management. The bathroom was quite nice, although we did have a few problems with the toilet blocking and the bathroom light not working. If we stayed here again, we would ask for a room not facing the road, as even though we were on the 8th floor, the street noise was very loud, even throughout the night. The complimentary breakfast consisted of basic cereals, muffins, bagels and croissants which are monitored very closely so that each person does not have more than 2 serves. Good hotel for if you're on a budget, I would stay here again, but it could do with some updating.
