“Nice friendly hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We stayed at the Broadway Plaza from June 28 - July 1 2014. Great location. We were welcomed by friendly staff. Our room was large, clean, with a great view of the Empire State Building. Nice to have the breakfast (we brought it back to our room each morning because very small eating area). Love NYC and this trip was awesome! I would return to this hotel.

Nice clean hotel. Friendly concierge. Big room with nice bathroom. Walking distance to everything. It's an old fashioned looking hotel but don't be put off! The only downside was the tiny breakfast room - there are only a few seats so we took a tray and took breakfast back up to our room, which was fine. Breakfast was limited - apples, oranges, pastry selection, and juice/tea/coffee from a machine. This wouldn't put me off booking again (there are plenty of cafes around for nicer breakfasts!).

The hotel itself is very central in Manhattan and was good to travel most tourist sites that we wanted to visit. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room quite dated, but on the plus side it was on 4th floor right next to breakfast room and 24 hour coffee (though the water/orange juice machine was only available at breakfast which was annoying when dehydrated from walking round the city) there was a vending machine on 8th floor. Breakfast was included even though expecting room only - fruit and pastries left out for you to help yourself to :) one tip, when staff tell you it's not walkable... It is, to walk a block is less than 30 seconds so 20 blocks seems a lot but in reality it's a 10 minute walk!

We stayed here in March 2014 (fortunately just after the terrible snow storms). The hotel is ideally located and just a short walk to the subway stations.

The staff were friendly and polite. The rooms were clean and VERY large. We had a view of the Empire State Building which was amazing.

The breakfast selection was nothing to write home about so don't get your hopes up, but it is nice to have coffee and juice first thing in a morning (and even nicer if one of your friends fetches it for you).

The only downside seemed to be some of the clientele. On our last night we kept awake nearly all night by the party which was going on in the next room and outside our door. In fairness we didn't inform the management at the time, and when we mentioned it at check out they were concerned.

There seemed to be an overwhelming smell of marijuana on our floor of the hotel and two floors below where our friends were staying.

Shame about no free wifi - but we managed to get fantastic connection on the subway!

I would stay here again.

All in all - good value

I stayed here for 5 nights in May 2013 (only just got round to writing a review - over a year later). I really enjoyed my stay here and found the staff to be exceedingly helpful, particularly a gentleman named Anthony. Me and my boyfriend both felt like nothing was to much hassel especially when it came to flagging down cabs for us! The hotel overall was clean and the rooms were quite spacious. The only negative point I have is the WiFi was not free when we stayed, unsure if this has changed now or not?

The hotel is in a good location around a 15 minute walk to Times Square and very close to The Empire State Building. I would throughly recommend whilst in New York to take the Greyline bus tours. These tour buses were excellent. They covered Uptown, Harlem, The Bronx, Downtown and Brooklyn. It was a 'hop on, hop off' service and it was very easy to follow the pick up and drop off points.

This hotel is perfectly located for exploring Midtown Manhattan. We stayed in room 1002 which is a corner room that has a beautiful view of the Empire State Building. The hotel is a 15-20 minute walk to Times Sq, 5 mins to the Flatiron and 2 mins to 5th Avenue.

The hotel itself is basic but is clean and has great AC and offers a free continental breakfast every morning, plus free tea and coffee all day. We ate breakfast at Eisenberg's just down 5th past the Flatiron and I can really recommend this if you prefer a taste of old school NYC.

Unless you book directly with the hotel you have to pay $9.95 per day for wi-fi but there is a Starbucks opposite which offers free wi-fi.

The staff were polite and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Good and bad things about this hotel, first the good: it is located close to the broadway local subway so it is easy to get to Broadway shows, and around NYC cheaply. Easy walking distance to Macy's, Madison Sq., and the Empire State Building. It was clean and comfortable. Larger than your average NYC hotel room. The staff is friendly and professional. The price is very good for NYC. The Bad: very small lobby for meeting anyone. Very small breakfast area, it was so crowded that I gave up on even trying. Other guests were managing to take food back to their rooms on trays because there is almost no space to sit. There are two tables I think. Also just outside of the hotel there are quite a few unoccupied people standing and sitting around the corner. They made me a bit uncomfortable as I walked into the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing north, 3rd floor or higher with a view of the Empire State Building
