Prison cell room for 500 dollars. . Dysfunctional and oppressive room. . Elevators look like an old warehouse. Dirty. Property is dilapidated. Front desk is useless and could care less. A real insult
City Club Hotel is the perfect place to stay in New York to take advantage of being close to Broadway. George, at the hotel, could not do enough for us. He welcomed us graciously and offered several times to schedule excursions to see the sights, providing wonderful tips for future visits. We will see George on our next trip to the Big Apple!
One of the worst hotels I ever stayed in. The front desk was so rude and unhelpful, at the end, the main guy was yelling at me when I asked him to give me back my security deposit, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I paid 2 nights 500 USD and I got a small room, without a window and lights. I felt so bad there without any reason. This was a super bad experience and I would never recommend them.
Entire hotel needs updating. Looks really tired. Tile floor in bathroom coming up, balcony door very hard to open and it could use a fresh coat of paint everywhere. It’s a shame because it couldn’t be in a better location. Midtown Manhattan.
Definitely not your cookie cutter hotel room and had some old world charm. Super clean and very comfortable bed The location is perfect to most of the theater and concert venues with only a short walk away. The staff was awesome and super friendly!
Comfortable bed and good location, but definitely not worth the money I paid. I paid extra to get a bathtub which I couldn't get because all of the rooms with tubs were full by the time I went to check in in the evening. Then the TV remote quit working the second day I was there and I was told "I recommend watching Netflix on your phone." Then the shower head fell off in the middle of my shower! Finally, I checked my bank statement the week after checking out and I was overcharged for my stay. Every time I call I am told the manager is out and to call back.
Great location, very central to most areas. We stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. Our flights ended up being majorly delayed. When I rang the hotel to update we wouldn't be arriving until 3am instead of 7pm, they were lovely about it. Doorman is lovely, always has a smile and opens the door. The whole hotel is outdated. For us that wasn't a big deal but it wouldn't be our choice to stay again if staying longer then a weekend.
DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL. This hotel (if you can call it a hotel) is the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in. The rooms are extremely small, even by NYC standards. You could hardly get around the bed. Granted the room was advertised as a Petit room however it is still sold as a two person room. The bed is what I believe to be a queen bed in the US however it was smaller than a UK double which is designed for 2 people. The bed measured 5ft long which for a 6ft person is completely ridiculous. The filth and dirt in the room makes me wonder the last time the room was cleaned. I actually wore shoes the entire time I was in the room as to avoid the dirty floor (wipe your feet on the way out!). The walls were dirty, full of black marks, ripped wallpaper and brown stains. The aircon vent continually fell off only to reveal a thick layer of dirt behind it and sticky bug traps that were riddled in lice and insects. The bathroom was OK, but by far roomy, there was no where to put washbags or anywhere to hang clean clothes. The towels were clean (that was the only thing about the room that was clean). If the tiles weren't brown they would have no doubt shown the dirt! We were offered a complimentary breakfast on check in however I wouldn't let a dog eat in the restaurant. That was very dark, depressing and lacking in any appeal that would make you want to dine in there. And if the room cleanliness is anything to go by god knows what the back of house standards are like. We had 3 nights booked but only stayed 1. We wouldn't have stayed 1 if we weren't so insanely tired from a long trip over and lack of alternative accommodation. On check out the receptionist was not surprised at all we were checking out and did not offer to refund the cost of the first night - instead she proceed to charge my card in front of me (including the tax) and then said I had to cancel the rest of the stay through booking.com. No compensation or apology was given which leads me to believe this is a regular occurrence. Do not believe the reviews! My partner pointed out that if you read the good reviews carefully you will notice the language/grammar used and frequent reference to the same member of staff implies the hotel are writing their own. DO NOT STAY HERE!!…
In the 1980's, small boutique hotels were in style - usually defined by a designer or a restaurant. The City Club was linked to famous chef, Daniel Boulud, and his Times Square DB Bistro. When it opened, it was a chic, stylish hotel with a moderate price. Those days are long gone. DB Bistro is closed and the hotel has seen better days. You can still spot signs of creative design - the wall lamps are low and the art is still nice. But paint is chipped and wallpaper is peeling. On the other hand, it has a great location near Times Square, it's clean and acceptable at a low price point. I paid about $200. The room was a fine size and the handicapped bathroom was quite large. It was fine at that price. My view of NYC hotels is that I only sleep there. I don't care very much where I stay, as long as it's clean and fairly nice. I have stayed at the best hotels - Pierre, Lowell - and paying a lot is just a waste of money to me. (If someone wants to pay for my stay at the Aman Hotel, please contact me.) I don't regret staying there. I was happy to save the money. But go with lowered expectations.…
After checking in to City Club Hotel 55 W 44th St New York NY 10036, my children observed that a giant 4 foot by 12 foot mirror in their room was a two way mirror. My kid had seen a YouTube video that showed you could tell if you put your finger up to the mirror and you see your fingertips touch, it’s a mirror you can see through from the inside. My kid then proceeded to take the phone flashlight and put it up next to the large 4 foot by 10 foot mirror, and lo and behold, you could see a little area on the other side of the mirror. So my children were petrified that there could be cameras watching them from behind these mirrors. I was petrified that this hotel seemed to be made and possibly operated by some sort of Norman Bates-like sociopath.
