“Weekend trip to NYC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We stayed at the Ameritania Hotel 12/28/20012 on 54th St. the hotel is next door to the Ed Sullivan Theater where David Letterman show is filmed. We had a Broadway facing window so we could watch the crowds at night. The road noise is loud , but that is part of the experience of New York if you are a light sleeper ask for upper floors . The hotel is nice with modern furnishings and free breakfast. We had a great time and would stay here again.

So I surprised my boyfriend for our anniversary and stayed at this hotel!!! Could not have been happier! From the moment we walked in the lobby was clean, chic and polished to expectations. We were greeted from the door man and proceeded to the check in. It was June so they had complimentary fresh lemonade and a coffee bar to cold down or... Grab a cup of joe. Check in was a breeze and we were directed to the elevator. We were on the top floor but when we got to our room it had a roof view of another building . The rooms are NYC small which can be expected but very good use of space. The ottoman had two drawers for storage,there was a decent size closet to store suitcases and hang up clothes. So this was a great room but you never know if there is better until you ask. So I called the front desk explaining we loved the room but if they had one overlooking the street maybe? Ohhhhhh yes they did. We were moved down a level and were given such an awesome view. Later in in the evening adjacent to us there was a rooftop party and it was so cool to see it all lite up and everyone partying ( it wasn't super close so don't think people can see into your room)..back to the room!!! The room!! Omg ! I literally redid my bedroom after this room! The bed was super clean and cozy. Fresh -starched sheets and a set of both firm and soft pillows. The painting over the bed was chic and the nightstand featured an iPod docking station. The bathroom was the best! Huge tiled shower with half glass enclosure featuring both a slick shower wand and a rainfall shower head! It comfortably fit two people( if you wanted to conserve water of course;) ) and the toiletries were bamboo infused. Love it! The mirror had two lightening setting features behind the mirror( cool and warm similar to dressing room lightening that you can adjust in the fitting rooms at H&M ). It was a very nicely sized bathroom. The rest of the hotel I briefly looked around at. It does have a very small gym downstairs in the lower level and a lounge/ bar to the left of the lobby. We purchased this through hotels.com so we got it super cheap. I will defiantly be back. I would say this hotel is best for a couple or a party of 3 max. It's not so much kid friendly but I'm sure you could bring children but I wouldn't . Perfect for couples! Literally to the right of the hotel is the late show building and down the street north is Central Park ! Hello this is perfect location ! It's not too crowded and filled with tourists so its wonderful to walk around !

Room Tip: Just ask! Ask with a smile and remember these are people and not mind readers. You get more bees wit...

Excellent Hotel, superb location. Really friendly staff, especially the doormen. Had corner room with dual aspect of 54th Street and Broadway. Room spacious and clean, touch dark due to limited lighting but not really a problem. Large double bed, very comfortable. Bathroom bright and great shower. Used small basement gym on three occasions - quite fine. Complimentary breakfast very simple but we were not expecting anything more so fine.
Observations: No Flags outside, Ameritania Hotel external Illuminated Sign not full lit (attention to detail!), No Christmas decorations - bit of a surprise; bathroom door opened very close to the wc! Could have done with some more drawer space in room.
Otherwise really ticked all the boxes - thank you

When we initially arrived we had an issue regarding our room type. We booked a deluxe king room but they only had queen standard rooms left. We questioned this as we had made the reservation months back. Didn't really get a great answer but we settled for the queen room with the promise of a deluxe room for the rest of our stay. As always I judge a hotel on how they respond to issues rather than any issues we have as however good a hotel or restaurant is they make mistakes. From that point the Ameritania couldn't do enough for us, the room we got for the rest of our stay was fantastic, it was street side and was large, warm and comfortable. They gave us a few extras which really made up for the early mistake. The location is fantastic, only a few blocks from either central park or times square and 2-3 mins from a subway stop. Would definitely recommend this hotel however would advise maybe calling the day before you arrive to confirm your reservation.

Room Tip: I would pay the extra $30 a night for the deluxe king, after experiencing both the standard queen an...

Room sizes are not small and have separate ensuite and closet with a safe. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The rooms have minor problems such as a sticking bathroom door and toilet that kept refilling. Located 3 minutes walk to either Times Square or Central Park. The doormen are awesome as is Robert in the breakfast room. We stayed 2 weeks and got free wifi and breakfasts. Several subway stations within 5 minutes walk. Overall, better value than most other hotels in New York City. Highly recommended,

We stayed in this Hotel for 8 nights over Thanksgiving, the first room we were given was tiny and we moved to a larger room after the first night, no problems changing room and they even moved us whilst we were out. The hotel staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean, had a great shower and comfy beds. The corriders were a bit gloomy and could do with a brighter colour and everything in the rooms was oversided from the mirrors to the light, the rooms are small and with better use of space they could be really great. The location is fantastic, near to the Park, Broadway, Subways and close but far enough away from Times Sq to miss fighting through the crowds. I would stay at the Ameritania again.

Ideal location, staff friendly and helpful.

We booked a deluxe room due to requiring two beds. Room was on the 7th floor. When we walked in there was a lovely full length mirror but could not be used as no lighting close by so was dark part of the room. Only other mirror was in the bathroom.

We reported door could not be locked inside and maintenance said they would send someone to look. It was never repaired.

Found the room a bit too dark but was not a problem as for us as it was a base in new york.

I asked about wifi and the helpful receptionist gave me a password so did not have to pay.

I would recommend this hotel and being a travel agent have booked two other customers in there.

All in all lovely stay, nothing too much trouble with the staff
