“A surprisingly pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We were looking for a clean, central, but most of all, comfortable hotel where we could relax at night after sightseeing during the day, that would not break the bank. Boy did we score with this one! Not inly was our room larger than most standard rooms in NYC, but the bedding was something you'd find in a 4 or 5 star suite. Our son did not want to get up the next morning, and told us he felt like he slept on a cloud! The bathroom was small, but updated, and clean. Everyone from the hotel's store, restaurant, concierge, and front desk were super friendly, especially to our 5 yr old, which was a great welcoming point.  Most of all, the atmosphere in the lobby was fantastic. The bartender even gave us free shots!! All this, snuggled in a 3 star hotel, with a 3 star price? Who knew?!?

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, or on a high floor. It will have great views, with tons of light!

For the price the hotel is a fair value. I was in the North Tower and the room was definitely dated. They just recently started renovations on the South Tower and the North is due to start January, 2014. I stayed 2 nights at an ARR of $175 so cannot complain about the price!
Service at the restaurant was spotty at best.
Service checking in was pleasant and efficient.
Convenient location in midtown Manhattan.
Agree about the tiny elevators but at least they had three available so never had much of a wait.
I would stay again at the same rate but if it pops over $200 would likely look elsewhere for a nicer place.

This is great place to stay if you want to save a "little" more money as opposed to staying in Time Square. The hotel could use a little updating and remodeling to rooms. Elevators were VERY small for such a big hotel.Val-lay parking can be a little expensive But really that is being nit picky on my part. Good stay and location is the best thing about this place. Nice view also. I would really give it a 3 1/2 out of 5, but gave the 4 just because..LOL.. This is good and average stay for New York City. Best thing is location, location, location..:)

This Hotel was nothing special, it was clean and warm and the only thing that really stands out to me was the little tags on the pillows advising which one was soft and which was firm!

The bathroom was really tiny, with a separate sink area.

Oh and the other thing was the service at the restaurant was pretty bad, we didn't end up eating there because we were ignored for about 15 mins, whilst waiting to be seated, so we went elsewhere.

As many others have written, this is a fairly well located hotel a few blocks from shops, restaurants, the subway and highlights such as MOMA, Time Warner Building & Central Park. The rooms are relatively large for NYC and have free wifi. I liked that you can still open windows (if only a little), they don't gouge you for meals like some hotels, and there is an ATM in the lobby. On the negative side, rooms do not have a fridge, the building & elevators are showing their age, one or two staff let down the otherwise very good standard of service, and there is not much to see or do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. If other guests would learn not to slam their doors shut all night & day, it would be nice, but that is not the hotel's fault. A decent stay at, for NYC, a decent price.

At about $225 this hotel is a reasonable value considering it's location. The lobby is nice enough & reasonably upscale. The rooms are a nice size for NYC, but on the smaller size of 'standard'. This is an old hotel & it shows in the nooks & crannies. Bath on the tight side & hot water can take a LONG time to draw. Beds OK. Clean enough. (Not so) easy chairs ripped to shreads on arms. All employees I met were foreign, but understood us well enough. Elevators marginally adequate. You're not likely to be disappointed for the price. On occasion you can get the nearby Hilton for around $50 more, which would be well worth the extra money.

I stayed for 3 nights and was very happy with the hotel. It was ideally located for the Metropolitan Opera House (the reason for my visit) and I was pleasantly surprised by the relative lack of noise in the room. Maybe I was fortunate to have a room at the rear of the hotel, so an a fairly minor street. On previous stays in Ney York City, I've been quite unable to sleep because of all-night police and ambulance sirens and other noise, so this stay was relatibe bliss. The Gotham cafe was fine for a reasonably-priced breakfast and the hotel provided all I needed for a comfortable stay. I was particurly pleased about this as some of the reviews, perhaps dating from a perid when the hotel was undergoing major renovation, talked of long waits for elevators, bedbugs, and unpleasant staff but I encountered none of these problems ands was entirely happy with my stay. Obviously this is not a luxury hotel and doesn't pretend to be so, but was perfectly adequate for my needs.
