“Great hotel, location & price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were in town for the US Open and could not have been more pleased with our stay at this hotel. The staff were pleasant. The price was reasonable (by New York standards) and the location was very convenient. The rooms were modern and nice and had been recently redone (Kohler fixtures, etc.). We were upgraded to a larger room which had a kitchenette and a balcony that included a view of the Chrysler Building. I would definitely stay here again when in New York City. Great breakfast included. There was a workout area we did not use.

This Residence Inn is a very comfortable property. The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was great. Comfortable bed. Big flat screen TV. Free wireless Internet. The East Side midtown location was perfect for me. Not a big room, but big enough for one or two people. Highly recommended.

Made a tourist visit to NYC, including visiting overseas teenager. Picked hotel because of room size (pull out sofa for 3rd guest). Hotel is very convenient; rooms indeed can handle 3 people easily. Location is excellent for tourist purposes; block away from Times Square. Most pleasant surprise was the free breakfast. Usually these are quite yucky and gross, but buffet here is very complete with good selection of freshly made food, real tableware, etc.

We recently traveled to New York with our 2 teenage children to celebrate their 16th bdays and to watch the US OPEN. We were so pleased with the hotel. The staff was excellent from the minute we arrived. We received early check in and our room was very clean and spacious for NY. The breakfast was fantastic and lots of variety, a very good value and the staff again were so eager to please. They even sent up cupcakes and a birthday card to our room for the kids. We would definitely stay at this property again. A special thank you to the staff, Nykia, Justin, Sarah, Derek and Sam. You guys were the best, from arranging cabs to answering questions and even offering free use of an umbrella, complimentary for the day, as rain was expected . We loved our stay!!!!

We only had one night in NYC and wanted to stay in the area since we had friends at the Waldorf. Our studio suite was extremely clean, though a bit small. However, since we were spending our time at the US Open, and the bed was extremely comfortable, we were more than satisfied with our room.

We did not partake of the free breakfast, but did walk through and were impressed with both the efficient layout and huge breakfast area.

Yes, if we are again in NYC and wish to stay in the midtown/east area, we will book at this hotel.

Room Tip: We did not encounter noise problems in our 8th floor room.

We stayed in the penthouse for our three trip to NYC. It was a fantastic room & hotel. Private terrace with views of Chrysler building. The staff were kind & helpful, especially Jeremy. Free breakfast was average. City bikes were located just outside of hotel. Parking just across the street.
