“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

My two nieces and I shared room, 2207, corner room, from September 5 through 9th, 2013. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was quiet and clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel location is excellent, short walk to Times Square and the theatres, a 5 minute walk to the subway, many restaurants near by, and about a 15 or 20 minute walk to the boat cruises of the city. The free Happy Hour (Tues, Wed. and Thurs.) was nice and the breakfast buffet was good. One suggestion for the hotel, have two pots of hot water instead of just one b/c every time I tried to get hot water it was empty. Another suggestion, a full length mirror (perhaps on the opaque bathroom door). The hotel is a very good value the only small negative, a few times the elevators were slow. Warning for future guests, there is a room right between the elevators. I wouldn't wish that room on anyone. Our room worked out well for us and we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't get a room between the elevators or in front of the elevators

This was our 3rd time in New York this hotel is in a great location a few blocks from Times Square and with the port authority bus terminal across the street it makes it great to explore other parts of NY and New Jersey. The staff are very friendly and willing to help in any way they can we had a 4 yr old with us so keep the room tidy was a mission but the room service made it look like a new room every day. Breakfast was good but always packed the elevators are slow but as bad as some of the other reviews say longest we had to wait was about 2 minutes

We had the pleasure of staying at Staybridge for 2 nights and we were so pleased with everything about this hotel. The location was perfect...close to public transportation, easy access to Time Square and most New York attractions. We were pleasantly surprised when we looked out our window on the 23rd floor to have a great view of the Empire State Building. The rooms were so modern and with fully equipped kitchenettes make a great place for extended stays. The staff was friendly and always eager to help. The free breakfast was just the best with plenty of choice and free Internet was a bonus! If we ever return to New York will definitely choose this hotel.

I was really impressed by the Staybridge Suites. Not only was it clean, well managed by friendly and helpful staff but there are a few great add-ons.

Firstly the spacious room includes a kitchenette with fridge, freezer, hob and microwave so it's really handy if you want to keep your costs down. I didn't use it but it was clean and well fitted out.

Secondly they provide a welcome sundowner on tue, we'd and Thursdays to which all guests are invited to take part. There is free food and drink. It's a great way of chilling out in the lounge area and adds.a great sense of homeliness to what could otherwise be a cold and soulless hotel.

Third is the free breakfast and wifi.

The hotel is set just two minutes walk from Times Square but is in a very quiet street (W40th). It's a short walk from the subway and here are a number of restaurants close buy as well as quick serve Pizza or Kebab/gyro stalls so you can grab a quick bite on the move.

The only downside (and its really minor) is the elevators seem to take for ever at peak periods. It seems to be a problem with residents pressing both up and down buttons to get an elevator quicker but in truth it slows it down for everyone. But, I think the hotel also need to review the programming of the elevators. A time it seemed like only one or two were actually operating at he busy times and the other was lying dormant.

Other than that, I couldn't recommend this hotel enough. It was a really pleasant surprise. Well done to the entire team.

Had another lovely trip to NYC and Staybridge Times Square should take some of the credit!. The staff - front desk/ breakfast workers and cleaning staff - were all pleasant, helpful and courteous. We had quick check-in and our room was ready and very clean. All rooms have fridge/ microwave/ and lg screen TV. Our room and floor was quiet and the bed was comfortable w/ immaculate linen. Full Breakfast w/ fresh fruit/ eggs/ meats and breads is free as is the laundry and fitness area. Less than a block walk to a major subway station (Port Authority). The parole board is on the same block and is not a issue - I felt safe at all hours of the day/ night walking to and from the hotel. I'm very happy that this hotel is able to keep up such high standards and I think it is a bargain for the price. The room would be very tight for more than 2 adults and a small child but fine for sleeping/ showering and returning outside to the city.

I love this place. The rooms are small, but it's New York. They have everything you need in them, it's clean, convenient location, and has a nice evening reception. The staff is very helpful too. It's a great find.

The generous sized rooms are equipped with a kitchen including cooking ware which can come in handy if you are not in the mood for eating out. This and the various possibilities for storing your belongings make you feel like at home.

They also offer a really substantial breakfast buffet with slight changes every day which I liked.

The hotel is located very conveniently in mid town. It takes a two minute walk to get to times square.
