“Pretty good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nice place and nice staff. The entrance is a little small but the rooms were quite large.

One of the beds obstructed the window and had to be moved to look out and the lack of free Internet was a letdown for the price.

Breakfast was a little room on the same floor as our room and is much too small the number of guests and we gave up and went to McDonalds.

A free starbucks coffee machine is available all the time and is a nice little bonus.

We frequently stay overnight in NYC for business, usually at the Hotel Pennsylvania, which has been unfortunately going downhill with every stay. Well, this time we decided to try something else and booked the Broadway Plaza, based on its location. We were not prepared to be "wowed" to the extent that we were. The staff was friendly, and the room was awesome! Clean, VERY spacious, and comfortable. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. We will definitely be back.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Broadway Plaza and had an enjoyable stay. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed on the 12th floor over looking the Empire State Building which was a great view each morning. A great location. Nearest sub train was on 28th street to catch a train downtown or uptown (train R) every few minutes. Also walking distance to the Flatiron Bldg, Time Square, Empire State, Chrysler and Grand Central station. A 40 minute walk to Central Park. This was our 2nd visit to New York, but our 1st visit to Broadway Plaza Hotel, I would be happy to stay here again. The hotel is nothing fancy, but comfortable. The only down fall with this hotel was the lift. It was very slow.

Room Tip: ask for the 12th floor room facing the Empire State building on arrival

I didn't expect much from the hotel, but I was still a little disappointed. The location is great, the staff is amazing, and the price is reasonable. So where did this place fail me? Well, there were two deficiencies. The first was the acrid smell that permeated the place. My room was smoke free, but I could hardly breathe because the smoke residue was overwhelming. The second issue is based on a feeling. I hate to review on something like this, because I don't have a tangible thing that I can point out, but the room "felt" unclean. I can't provide evidence of poor cleaning practices, maybe it was because everything seemed so old like the bedspreads and carpet, but I never felt like I was in a clean room.

This was our second time to New York, the first time we stayed in a hotel away from the main sights. However the Broadway Plaza puts you within blocks from everything! We were lucky to get views over looking Broadway and could make out the Empire State Building and the Flat Iron building, the nearest subway was within 3 blocks (or go to 23rd for more choice of lines, still only a few blocks south). Despite the close location to fifth and Madison Square Park it's a very quiet area. The staff are helpful and the deli supplying the room service excellent! The rooms were clean and tidy with excellent space for luggage and shopping. The free breakfast and 24hr coffee was a nice surprise and good quality food and choice, however could get crowded (can eat in your rooms). The only downside was there is only a single lift (could take time)?but the stairs were easy to use only being 13 floors high.

We were quite impressed with Broadway Plaza in that it was good value for money and within walking distance of Broadway/Time Square Etc.A couple of points to mention would be that the bed was not very comfortable and could do with replacing and when we returned to our room before check out at midday we were unable to access the room as the swipe card had been deactivated.Also,a word of warning when you pay the deposit by International Credit Card they cannot refund the card back.I paid by Thomson Money Card(Mastercard)as had no end of hassle.Apart from these few niggles we enjoyed our stay

Room Tip: Choose room on fourth floor which is same floor as Breakfast Room

I stayed here for 4 nights in October, after reading some of the reviews of the location of the hotel I was a bit nervous of staying here but soon as we arrived the door man was friendly, checking in was quick after traveling nearly 8 hours and with the time difference we got to our hotel room quickly! Antony also told us he would be there to answer any q's etc with booking tours etc! Hotel room was very spacious and clean with two large beds, a table with two chairs, a desk with another chair, plasma tv, with staying four nights the the shower always had hot water, the maid cleaned our room every day, the breakfast was included in the price of the hotel offering bagels, muffins, donuts, fruit and Starbucks coffee and tea plus juices! The breakfast room was quiet small so if there was no tables left we would bring the breakfast up to the room which was also nice! It was my first time to stay in NYC and I would 100% stay here again the only thing the outside can turn u off as a first impression but with only a 20 minute walk to times square , 10 mins walk to Macy's and 15 mins walk to the empire state building it's perfect for the location! Staff were always friendly!
