“I'll be back!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I have stayed at the Staybridge on four different occasions and have found the rooms to be exceptionally clean and the beds SO comfortable, the staff exceptionally friendly, helpful, and courteous (Sunny and Jamie are THE BEST!), the hotel facilities to be comfortable and pleasant, and the walking distance proximity to Times Square and Hells Kitchen is perfect. You won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: No complaints--never had a problem with any of my rooms.

Chris, thank you so much for your great review!

When our guests’ reviews stand on their own as a walking advertisement for the Staybridge Suites Times Square, I don’t think anyone can complain.

We are delighted that you enjoyed our accommodations so much, and were able to use the hotel location to the best of your abilities.

Most importantly though, are the interactions you had with our bellman. Sunny and Jamie are two of the best bellman in Manhattan, and it really shows, based on the amount of positive feedback we receive based on their rapport with our guests. We are so glad that you appreciate their genuinely unique and fun personalities.

We can’t thank you enough for your review Chris, and we will hopefully see you again soon!

We stayed for a week on our first visit to NYC. This hotel had been recommended to us so we did not hesitate to book.
We found the location pretty good and close to Times Square. Dont worry about the bus depot over the road or the parole board next door - we felt completely safe, day and night.
The complimentary reakfast had a good choice, but was very busy..we took out breakfast back to the room sometimes.
After being in the US for 4 weeks, my husband and I both agreed, this hotel had the best bed and the biggest.
We stayed on the 22nd floor and had a good view of the Empire State Building.
The only downside was the $15 bourbon my husband purchased from the bar..glad I didnt want one..could of bought a bottle up the road for that price - it was his 1st and last drink there.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to review our hotel!

It’s nice to hear you booked through a recommendation as that is truly the best way to choose!

All of our rooms are equipped with the modern conveniences you would expect to receive at home! As you mentioned, the beds are one of the many favorites in our rooms because they are extremely comfortable (just in case you were wondering they are made by Serta Hotel Suite)!

We are happy you took full advantage of the amenities of the hotel and what our location has to offer. Our complimentary all American breakfast buffet is served daily on M-F from 6-10am and Sat & Sun from 7-11am, offering a wide variety of items for our guests to enjoy!

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Staybridge Suites on your next visit to NYC!

Warm Regards,
Staybridge Team

We have stayed 2 nights and have another eight nights. We carefully booked this hotel some 6 moths ago, as, as a result of a review in our local newspaper. We were nervous but we were reassured by the response to mostly positive reviews on Tripadvisor by the manager - she appeared to. It only acknowledge all compliments, but also honestly address concerns raised.

Well! We were so pleasantly reassured and surprised. This is a seriously great place to stay for the following reasons:
1. Great location- about 2 blocks from Times Square;
2. Friendly staff - not only checkin staff but staff all over are very friendly and helpful;
3. There is free and uncomplicated (password free) wi-fi to all guests;
4. Free breakfast (although I acknowledge previous reviews concerns about lack of space;
5. Social hour (which is free beer and wine) for 2 hours is great (although food is not fabulous - but who cares?)
6. Outgoing calls are free.

Best of all though, is the bed - seriously comfy, white good quality linen, and warm doona. This bed rivals the Westin bed (I stay in the Wesrin chain at least twice a month in Sydney, Australia) and is just fabulous.

We are here for another 8 nights - just happy to be here. A good place!

Cheers Christina Turner

Stayed with my wife for 3 nights while visiting NYC. We used Priority Club points for the stay and chose Staybridge Suites over other PC properties in the same category due to tripadvisor ranking and proximity to places we wanted to go. The included breakfast also helped seal the deal on the hotel decision.

The property was generally clean (except lobby bathrooms had a bad odor one day) with a modern decor. Staff was friendly and helpful. One complaint: they booked a private car for us to the airport and said driver gratuity was included. Upon arrival at the airport, the driver said no gratuity was included in the price, so we ended up paying him more. I think the driver was being dishonest and I reported the incident to the hotel.

Rooms are somewhat small, but with a smart and efficient use of space. Bed was comfortable, and wifi is included. We were on a high floor and didn't find the elevator wait to be an issue. Seems like it would be worse for those taking the elevator down from a low floor, because the elevator would sometimes be full by the time it got down there.

We were in one of the rooms (3 out of the 10 rooms on each floor) that are directly adjacent to an elevator. The sound of the elevator could be heard from the room, but it wasn't too bad. Very light sleepers may want to ensure they're not in one of those rooms.

Breakfast was okay; nothing special but that was fine. We managed to do plenty of eating outside of the hotel. We arrived in time for the Thursday social hour so were able to enjoy a couple drinks in the hotel after several hours of traveling.

Overall a great choice and would stay here again if I wanted to be near Times Square.

Hi Patricia, thank you for your review!

We really think that customer service is the most important part of a guests stay at any hotel and that’s what we try to do best here. Jamie and Sunny are two of the best assets any hotel could ever have. Their unique and amazing service really leaves our guests with stories to tell their friends and families when they get back home.

We’re glad that you got to our complimentary breakfast, which is served every day for our guests. That and our social hour, which is when we serve beer wine and appetizers, free of charge from Tues-Thurs 5pm-7pm, are two of the most popular amenities that our hotel offers our guests.

We appreciate the time you took out to write a review for us, and look forward to you staying with us again. Happy holidays!

Great location. Very nice rooms and a wonderful staff. Stayed here 3 nights after disappointing stay at Hampton Inn Times Square. Hotel was nice enough to accomodate us even during Sandy while other hotels were charging enormous rates. Will stay here again for next visit to NY. Hopefully we will then get to run marathon.

Hello and thank you very much for your review. We are happy that you found us after your less than fulfilling experience at a different midtown hotel.

We are always glad to accommodate our guests, even in times of natural disaster. Our hotel takes pride in being one of the best values that NYC has to offer, by providing great accommodations and service, while keeping our rates affordable.

We look forward to you coming back to stay with us again, and with the best of luck, there will be a marathon for you to run next time. Thank you!

We stayed at the Staybridge Suites for three nights and found the hotel to be in a great location on 40th street between 8th and 9th avenues.The room was very nice and quite spacious for New York having two very comfortable double beds a good size bathroom and kitchen facilities. The hotel serves breakfast in the morning and also has a social event on tuesday wednesday and thursday evenings between 5pm and 7pm when they serve red wine, white wine, beer,soft drinks and light food ie pizza, salads, chicken wings, free of charge. I would recomend this hotel to anyone and would stay here again on my next visit to New York.
