“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Very convenient location if you have to be in Midtown Manhattan. Close to public transport, offices, shops (5th Avenue and Madison Avenue only a 10min walk). Staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms bit dated, but ok.

Location of the hotel is great, if you want to walk around and explore the city. The staff is very friendly and the hotel cafe/bar is a very nice place to spend time. Although the rooms are quite small but it wasn't much of a problem. However it can get quite noisy during mornings, so you might want to stay in a room far from elevators... Overall this is a really nice hotel to stay!

Great location just off Times Square - easy access to everything.
Rooms quite small, particularly bathroom and exceedingly hot! Although staff soon came and turned off the heating for us - being a Brit used to the cold!
would definitely revisit but ask for a room with a view and a bit bigger if possible but the location will sell this place time and time again!

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded for a room with a view & bigger

This is my second visit to the Row now, although my first visit was pre-renovation (the milford) and not so great. This time however, the experience was so much better, really friendly and helpfull staff (specifically Junior i think he said his name was) and a clean and tidy room. There's not a great deal i can say really other than if you want to be extremely close to times square, i can't imagine you'll get better value for money anywhere else.

Dear Michael W,
Thank you for coming back and thank you for your nice review.
I am happy to hear that you like the look of the new hotel and you found the experience much better. As you can see we did not invest only in the look and feel of the hotel. We also looked for the best talent available and Junior is one of them.
I am really proud to have Junior in our team!
Thank you for your comments about the housekeeping team. They really try their best every day to keep the rooms in perfect shape.
I am waiting to see you back the third time. Please let me know in advance when you come back I would like to meet you in person.

This is a fantastic hotel! Amazing location and the rates were great for a NY hotel. It's very trendy and the decor in the rooms is really fun! The bathroom is a bit small but the view makes up for it. Our room was always clean which was really important! We loved it!

Dear Elisa B,
Thank you for sharing your review with us!
I agree with you about the location. You cannot find a better spot to enjoy and visit the “Big Apple”.
Our goal is to give the opportunity to our guests to experience the best of NYC. The vibe in District M with the evening entertainment really creates a very trendy place where you want to be.
I will share your feedback with our housekeeping team. I am sure they will appreciate your comments.
I really hope you will come back to visit in the near future.
All the best,

Had a quick trip to NYC last week. Found a decent sub 300.00 a night deal at ROW Hotel. Anything under this in Midtown or Manhattan for that matter is good during December anyway.

Hotel has a nice vibe to it. Busy, front desk a little disorganized at times with long long lines that really must be addressed, but over all rooms were NYC small, but clean and well appointed.

Close to main line JFK to 42nd street on airtrain and subway is a breeze. As I recall 7.25 each way.

Great spot close to everything.

Dear Surferdude123464,
Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us.
Since the latest renovation, the hotel look and feel has change a lot. The evening daily entertainments in our lounge District M is becoming one of the hot spot in Time Square.
I am sorry about the long line at the front desk. We are working with the front desk team to try the most efficient solution to address this concern. I am sure we will come up with some alternative solution soon.
I agree with you about the location. It is simply perfect!
I look forward to welcoming you back to Row NYC soon!!!
All the best,

Stayed for 5 nights in November. Got upgraded to a king room on the 25th floor with a city view. Room was spacious with plenty of space to store our luggage! Our room was serviced every day without us having to wait. Location is perfect couldn't ask for better! Very close to everything!
Got a late check out on our departure day which was appreciated!
Only fault was the bed linen seemed a bit small for the bed size!!
Would definitely go back !

Dear Alison R,
Thank you for staying with us in November. I am so happy to read your nice comments on Trip Advisor.
The view of the city is really great and the location is perfect to enjoy the Big Apple!
Great to hear you were able to keep the room a little bit after the check-out time. We try to accommodate the requests as much as we can. In the event we cannot offer this, our bellman can store your luggage for the day.
I will share your comments about the linin with our housekeeping team. I hope you managed to have a good night sleep!
Please let me know when you are coming back. We will be sure the bed and the lininen will be inspected by our director of housekeeping.
All the best,
