Unless price is far more important than everything else, just avoid this place. The reasons include it is under construction, there is only one working elevator (hello COVID), it attracts clients most interested in low prices (hello people who are noisy) and the rooms are totally run down (hello, please renovate me). The name alone is trap. It is in Hells Kitchen and not Times Square. While the check desk team is great, the security guard stands at the front door block access to guests who refuse or just forgot to wear a mask.

Response from Gary Maida, General Manager at Hotel Central Times Square
Responded Apr 29, 2021
Hello, Thank you for sharing valuable feedback on your recent stay. I do apologize for your unsatisfactory experience. The hotel is under a major renovation, and as you noted, it is certainly in need of one. We set our rates significantly lower than that of our competitors since we do understand there are disruptions and inconveniences. Thanks for acknowledging the kindness of our service team at the front desk. All that said, the hotel will be absolutely beautiful once the renovation is complete in September. And while I am truly sorry for your experience, I would encourage you to give our hotel another opportunity if your travels take you to NYC after September. You will see a completely unique and upscale experience and it will be very enjoyable. Please accept my apologies. Regards, Gary

Hotel's Favorite
Stayed there a month and the staff was absolutely wonderful. The hotel was very clean and staff always helpful and friendly. The hotel manager went out of his way to host happy hours with soda and snacks and even played music. The hotel staff also delivered any packages straight to your room. For having to stay there for a month is was a delight!

Terrible experience at DoubleTree Hilton Times Square West, my first room had not been cleaned and had drug paraphernalia on the bedside table, the second room had no towels, impossible to call guest services, I needed to go down to the lobby to talk to anyone. I'm a healthcare worker coming to NYC to help out at the vaccination site at Javits, and all I wanted was a safe place nearby to shower and sleep in between my 12 hour shifts. My 2nd night a fight broke out in the elevator, I heard yelling and a baby crying, I almost had to call the cops but the situation resolved itself. I also had someone try to get into my room last night. I DO NOT feel safe staying here, but I'm working 12 hour shifts so hard to move hotels. I've gotten no help from hotel management, and the online customer support has given me the run around. They keep asking me for my confirmation number, email, etc. and then when I give it to them I get no response. DONT STAY HERE

Hi, I am so sorry you had an unsatisfactory experience at our hotel. I especially apologize for the lack of service you received from our staff. We pride ourselves on delivering a high level of customer service and I'm sorry we failed you. We take all guest complaints very serious and we will certainly address your concerns with our team. This hotel is going through a rebranding and a major renovation. Come September, the Voco Hotel will be an absolutely beautiful hotel. Feel free to email me as I would like to invite you back to our hotel the next time your travels take you to NYC. You will find a much more satisfying and peaceful experience.

Excellent help during my stay as an Navy nurse during the Covid relief from April to may. I would stay here any time. Always friendly and accommodating to my needs. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Made my time away from home easier.

Wonderful staff, great to work with, and comfortable. Stayed for the month of April and May 2020. They accommodated a large group of us with professionalism and bent over backwards to make our stay the best they possibly could. Well happily stay again if I'm ever back in New York.
