“Trendy......but ouch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

By any standard this hotel is in a great location. It is between Times Square and Columbus Circle and around the corner from the Ed Sullivan theater.

It is very trendy, with modern furniture, great lobby aroma and friendly staff.

HOWEVER, our room was SMALL.....and what is with the trendy hotels with small guest rooms and platform beds???? We will have memories (really I mean shin bruises) of the hotel for weeks.

Room Tip: Ask for the 08 or 05 rooms (the staff told us) for a lot more room.

Dear Kich13
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I am happy to read you enjoyed our central location and that you were not bothered by the city noises. I am sorry if the size of your room was not to your liking. We would be happy to show you the variety of rooms we offer for your next trip, with the hopes that you will find something more to your liking. The 08 or 05 rooms are a little bigger. Before your next stay please do not hesitate to personally contact me so we can arrange another great stay for you.

Awesome location!!! Literally feet from the David Letterman Show, 2 short blocks to Central Park or Times Square. It only took us 20 minutes from walking out the door of the hotel to walking into LGA. The room wasn't the smallest I've had in New York - it was fine for a couple. The bathroom was HUGE! And, it was beautifully done. The lobby is contemporary - very nicely appointed. The staff was friendly, especially the manager?....Jeff. The room rate was one of the lowest I found in the area. We stayed 5 days - I would definitely stay at the Ameritania again! We had one small problem with the A/C and the maintenance man was there in minutes. The only drawback was no free wi-fi. Highly recommend!!! You'll be happy you did!

Room Tip: ask for a room where the shower is "open". the bathroom is huge!

Great hotel, we have stayed in 2 other Manhatten hotels and was expecting another small pokey room, we certainly did not get that.

Brilliant large spacious room with 2 of the most comfortable beds have slept in in a hotel. well furnished and finished, good shower and bathroom with full range of the usual toiletries.

The lighting switches take a lil bit of getting used to and the air con was a bit noisy at times but this was not a problem as the weather was cool enough not to need to be used.

Although its listed as 54th st and Broadway and this may seem a walk downtown to Times Square this made for a lot less stress and hassle as could bypass the nightmare and maze that can be Times Square / 42nd St Station, we used 50th St which took us downtown to where we needed

Will definetly stay here again and would recommened to anyone wanting a central Manhatten Hotel without the crowds of Times Square

Room Tip: A higher up room just so that can avoid the usual New York traffic noise

Right in the corner of Broadway and 54th! Wooooow what a location! Minutes walk to most theaters and attractions. Hotel sparkling clean and great staff. We got what we paid for . Small but functional rooms. Very chic upgrade has been done in the bathroom.

Coming from the world of "Minnesota Nice", we were welcomed at the Ameritania by the nicest hotel staff I ever encountered in NYC! The folks at the desk were friendly, helpful, and so accomodating. Jeff, at the door, welcomed us like we were old friends and arranged our ride to JFK-cheap as a taxi and convenient, in a nice car! The rooms are clean and attractive, with comfy bedding. The location is fabulous, just steps away from Times Square, theaters, Central Park, Rockefeller Center and David Lettermen. Try a pizza at Angelos just around the corner. We'll go back-

Room Tip: Ask for a room on other side of construction, if work is going on...

I have stayed at the Ameritania Hotel in NYC twice while on business. This hotel is fantastic, the staff goes above and beyond and are so friendly. I have stayed in several hotels in the city and this one is clean, the rooms are a great size and the bathrooms are big too! This is and always will be my first choice while in NY, it is in a perfect location; minutes to time square, shopping, great food and central park. You won't be sorry for choosing the Ameritania, their team really shows interest in putting their customers needs first. I can't wait to go back!!!
