The location of the hotel is excellent - when you emerge from the Lincoln Tunnel, to the left, you take the first right turn to 40w st., and the hotel is right near there. It's within a short walking distance (4-5 blocks) to Times Square or to Bryant park and the library. Since it's between 8th and 9th avenues, in the late evening it may be a little bit less pleasant to walk there, but it's alright - nothing happened.
Parking is in a garage right beside the hotel (by car it's located before the hotel) - 28$ per day.
The breakfast is great - omlette, sausages, cottage cheese, fruits and more. Unfortunately there are not enough places to sit at breakfast when it's crowded, but they try to solve the problem allowing to sit in several areas.
The elevators are quick, but during checkout and breakfast times you wait quite a lot, as many people use them.
The rooms are modern, clean, comfortable - 2 big beds, a kitchenette, an AC (although it may make you cold as it's directed to the beds), many electrical sockets, spacious for 2 people (the first time we were there, we stayed 4 people in a room, and it was too crowded. This time we took 2 rooms, and it's good for 2 people in each room). The view from the room (17th floor) is nice.
All in all - very good hotel. It was our second stay there, and we will probably return if we visit that area in NYC.
We stayed at rooms 1703 and 1704

Hello and thank you for your very detailed review of the Staybridge Suites Times Square.
Report response as inappropriate
We are glad that you realized just how good the location of our hotel is in. For our guests who drive into the city we are just a few blocks away from the Lincoln Tunnel. For our guests that come in via public transportation, we are just one block away from the major subway hub located in Times Square. Tourism wise as well, the heart of Times Square really is only minutes away, and the other major NYC tourist attractions are only a short taxi, subway ride or walk away as well!
Thank you for visiting our complimentary breakfast. As you could tell, this is by far the most popular amenity that we offer our guests, and we do our very best to alleviate the crowding issue by opening multiple areas up to eat in. We appreciate your patience with the elevators in the morning as well, as we generally have a good amount of guests checking out at the same time on most days.
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our spacious rooms as well. Our kitchenette studios are very contemporary and all the appliances and adapters in the rooms are new and up to date. We have a full fridge, stove top and microwave available to our guests in every room.
We thank you again for your review, and are looking forward with anticipation to your third stay with us here at the Staybridge Suites Times Square!
