“Fantastic Bar View & Hotel ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Stayed here with my husband and 2 children family room was big and spacious ..
Bar food was fantastic and the views just made the trip
Upgraded to be able to get internet and breakfast and free appetisers which was the best decision..
Overall would definitely return here again and would most definitely recommend .. We stayed up in the top floor noise was not a problem.. Lift also very efficient and fast

Me and wife stayed here in June while attending a big fight at the Garden. Hotel is located in the heart of Times Square with everything within walking distance. Front desk staff was great. The R Lounge is a nice place to have a drink while enjoying a great view of Times Square. Will return again.

The hotel is right in Times Square - great if you want the activity of Times Square, bad if you want to sleep. Not uncommon to hear street musicians and people yelling until 1 or 2 in the morning.

A bit unusual, and at times frustrating, is that you must take two elevators to reach your room. An elevator from the main lobby, up to another 'lobby' where the bar(s) are located. Then switch elevators to reach your room. Gets a bit tiresome if you are there for an extended stay as I have been.

The best feature is certainly the bar. It has large picture windows and it looks right into Times Square. Even if you have been to NYC a bunch and don't like the 'tourist' scene, this bar is still worth a visit!

Overall, a properly priced stay in Times Square - just be ready for the noise and somewhat limited amenities.

Room Tip: Get a high floor, facing away from Times Square if you want a quiet night sleep.

If you're looking for the buzz of New York City at it's highest pitch, this is the place for you. I loved that I was steps from TKTS for theatre tickets. We enjoyed a wonderful stay there recently. As a platinum rewards member, they put us on the top floor in a fantastic room. We had no problems with noise, although of course there was a lot of light from Time Square. Overall, it was a fantastic hotel, good staff, great location.

Room Tip: If you can get a room on a high floor, it makes a difference.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon while staying here and received a bottle of champagne and strawberries dipped in chocolate on arrival which was lovely. The hotel itself looks lovely but once getting into our hotel room it is much more older looking and not as clean as we'd like. The staff were pleasant but not overly friendly. The view from our room was directly onto Times Square (or part of). We weren't overly impressed by the hotel, especially for the price we were paying but I guess thats what you'll pay when staying in a city centre.

Room Tip: We weren't too impressed with our room, it wasn't as clean as we'd like it and it was ol...

Love this place. Everyone is so nice and helpful. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beds are awesome. Feather pillows and comforter. You sleep like a baby. The restaurant overlooks Times Square and has a complimentary breakfast for Elite members and a free appetizer at night. The concierge is awesome - gave us some great advice! Located on Times Square the location is superb. However it is pricey but you only live once.

While it may be a bit pricey, this hotel is an absolutely amazing place to stay. Very friendly staff, clean, spacious rooms, and the whole hotel is styled uniquely without being pretentious. There is also a bar called the R Lounge in the hotel which faces right out onto Times Square.
