“great hotel close to everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Staybridge has been great- close to major dept stores, sights, subway etc Facilities such as the kitchenette, access to laundry on site etc very convenient. The food quality at breakfast and happy hour not really up to our standard, but we tend to sleep in anyway and eat out for brunch elsewhere, so not a problem. You can usually scrounge something even if selective, and take something back to you room if your late or its busy. The bed is very comfortable, hence another reason to sleep in. One of the most comfortable beds in any hotel we have stayed in anywhere- Australia, Paris, Japan, Scandinavia. Internet inclusive in the price fantastic and convenient.Very happy with our choice and would definitely stay here again should we come back to NY.

Great hotel - sure, NYC is uber-expensive - but this hotel gives you so much more for your money!
Full buffet breakfast with a wide variety of hot and cold options daily and Tuesday - Thursday 5-7pm a happy hour with wine / beer and salad / hot entree selection! This translates to a big saving in dining out costs during your stay!
Housekeeping faultless, front desk and reception staff friendly and helpful - we were even given complimentary tickets to a broadway show!!
Yes, the elevators are small and slow - but just allow sufficient time - doesn't have to be an issue!
Our room (2010) was big by NYC standards - big flat screen tv, desk, in- room safe, lots of storage, king size bed, chair and footstool, bath, fully equipped kitchenette with full-sized fridge, even a dishwasher! What more could you possibly want/need?
We even had a view of the Empire State Building from our window!
The Port Authority Bus Terminal is just across the road, which we used to go to the Woodbury Factory Outlets. The subway is on the corner of 40th and 8th, but you can pretty much walk everywhere - we walked to Macy's, Madison Square Gardens, the USS Intrepid Museum, Times Square, Rockefeller Centre, and The Empire State!! ( and we are 46 and 55 ).
Yes, the block the hotel is in is a little seedy ( parole office, couple of x-rated shops ) but in a week we never felt unsafe - NYC has police on practically every corner, and we saw more homeless on the streets of Boston. There are people on the streets 24/7, so it always feels safe!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the Times Square district, or as great base for NYC.

Was transferred to staybridge suites as onepeak messed up my reservation. The hotel is a pleasant surprise as it's located just behind the port authority. There are good food within walking distance, 5 napkin burger, db bistro, shake shack, le bernardin etc. It's also walking distance to shopping like Macy's and attraction like Rockefeller centre and empire state building. The hotel rooms are not well insulated as you can hear people talking outside the corridor. However the rooms are clean and nicely done up with area to cook. If you are going to the Javits, it's a ten minute walk. Overall it's a great place to stay in new York at a reasonable price.

The Staybridge has a great location. Close to Times Square, close to the subway, close to the Port Authority (no, really, its a plus). The hotel charge is about $300 per night, which seems to be the going rate. The included breakfast and Happy Hour were a step up from the usual "Drury grub". The reason I did not rate it a 5 star is because the elevators are slow. Get a room on a lower level so that you can take the stairs. You should also check out: Four Points, Fairfield and the Distrikt hotel. They are all right next to each other on 40th and seemed nice. Maybe they could give a better price.

Room Tip: Get a room on a level that you can walk up to, so as to avoid elevator.

We thought this hotel was great for the price point. The rooms was pretty spacious for NYC standards. The addition of the small kitchenette would be great if you were staying for a longer time. The location was good. Lots of things to walk to in the area. The rooms and common areas were all very clean. They also offered a happy hour with free drinks and snacks (free drinks in Manhattan!). We actually didn't check that out but thought it was a nice touch. We enjoyed our stay and had no problems.

If your looking for a central located hotel this is ideal! 10 minutes walk to Maceys, Empire State and literally minutes walk to Times Square. Rooms are small but adequate and are very clean. We had an incident with the air con unit which was eventually sorted after complaining to the Manager as the front desk staff wasn't bothered about the inconvenience I experienced. In fact that night was the worst nights sleep I've had! These things happen from time time but its all about how it's sorted out.... Would stay again if the price was right!

We have visited NYC many times and stayed at many hotels but this is the best by far. Located about 4 or 5 blocks from the center of Times Square, this hotel is a gem. The staff was very friendly and extremely efficient. The rooms and public areas are very clean. Our room was very well appointed with a full size fridge, dishwasher (in which they wash your glasses), cook top, large flat screen TV. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean albeit somewhat small. But it is NYC and rooms are never very large. The best part of this hotel is the free breakfast and evening snacks (which are more like dinner). Breakfast is served daily. Evening wine, beer, soft drinks and food are served on Tue, Wed. Thurs. each week. For example, Tues. night hamburgers, bratwurst, cobb salad bar, rolls, chips and fixins for the sandwiches. We ate out on Wed. but Thursday they served sub sandwiches, pulled pork sandwiches, Greek salad bar and Italian wedding soup. Beer, wine and soft drinks are all you can drink with your meal. We likely will never stay anywhere else in NYC! The price was comparable to any other nice city hotel without such amenities.
