Me and my Fiancée came to New York for the first time for Valentines 2013.
I chose The Iroquois based on what other travellers had said about it's cleanliness and friendly service (based on a bad hotel experience at Tenerife last year) and the reviews we read we read weren't wrong!
This was one of the most important aspects of the hotel for us as we knew how big New York was so we needed it to be in an ideal location.
When booking, it stated the hotel was very close to Times Square which we'd been told would be a perfect spot. The hotel was in the middle of Broadway (which would have been noisy) but was in the best place we could have asked - it was two blocks (a ten minute walk) from Broadway which was great as it meant we weren't too close to noise, butt was not too far away, all you could ask for was within walking distance.
All the staff at the hotel were absolutely brilliant, really friendly and very helpful.
Every morning we went to Vanessa at the concierge desk who gave us maps, directions, and recommendations for places to go such as restaurants and attractions, and always explained the easiest and cheapest way to get to these.
The reception staff were also very helpful, and the doorman helped us with our bags, and flagged us taxis when we needed them.
The room was perfect for us, although there was a mix up where we ended up with two double beds (not that this was a problem).
It was always very clean each day with fresh bed sheets and towels. The cleaner always left a cute little bag with the NY Times newspaper on the door handle each day, chocolates on our pillow, and a card with the following days weather forecast. The beds were really comfy and we had a great nights sleep. It offered a 32 inch TV, a Blu Ray player (American region DVDs only), a bath with shower function, and a long built in wardrobe.
We didn't try the restaurant due to the prices being a bit high, and the mini bar was very pricey ($4 for a small diet coke) which were the only downfalls but didn't spoil anything.
Overall, we were both both very satisfied with the hotel, and we would definitely come back and stay here again.
