I do not like to stay in Times Square hotels, but my brother and his family booked this hotel as they do not visit NYC very often. Overall, it is a good hotel. My room was a good size and in good condition. The bathtub was a bit dated, but otherwise I have no problem with the room. It is well located for those who are visiting NYC for the first time and want to be at the heart of the tourist district. For the same price, you can get a very nice boutique hotel, the type that I always book when I go into the city. The room looked recently renovated, it was very clean, and since I was on the 33rd floor – there was no street noise. However, the walls were a bit thin since the child in the room across the hall could be heard quite well when he/she was unhappy. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for those who wish to stay in Times Square.
