I have just returned from a 4 night stay with my mother and other 2 sisters, and had a great time! We had the family room which was really spacious and very clean (the maids also attended daily with fresh towels and coffee top ups!)....More

Room was small but fit our needs. VERY clean. Balcony was an unexpected extra. All the staff was super friendly and helpful. Hotel allows check in of bags before and after your stay which made it very easy to deal with the 3pm and 12pm...More
I have just returned from a 3 night stay at The Gallivant and I was pleasantly surprised. I had been given the trip to NYC as a 40th birthday present back in January from my boyfriend and have been reading the mixed reviews on here...More
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the
affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Yes, as the first reviewer mentioned there is a Chinese restaurant adjoining the lobby and they have a “buffet” type breakfast with good coffee and hot foods like eggs, bacon and pancakes and I did see croissants and cereal as well as fruit. I think the price was a little more than $15 though. During your first breakfast there the waitress will approach you with a “deal”. If you prepay in cash for the next few days breakfasts they will give you the price of $15/pp. we did it for one extra day because we like to check out other places in the neighborhood. There’s also a great diner on 8th between 48th-49th called Times Square Diner. I liked that place too. It was a quick 5 min walk.

I lived across the street on 48th from the Gallivant for 25 years. I've stayed at the Gallivant at least 6 times since Sept. 2017 with few issues. Best way to the hotel is taxi (or Uber/Lyft etc). I hate those busses b/c they rarely drop you at the hotel. Yellow taxi will. NEVER, EVER, EVER take a taxi from someone outside baggage claim who asks "Need taxi?" Get on the Yellow cab line, and when you get to the attendant say "Mid-town, 48th between 8th and Broadway, please". The driver may ask for 234 West 48th for their GPS. On one side of the trip via Yellow cab is Prix Fix price. I always use Uber or cab. Don't do this trip to/from JFK on the "cheap". You will have an unexpected ugly welcome to a vibrant city!!! The driver likely won't know the name Gallivant. It has changed names 4 times in the last 15 years. Hotel itself is a tourist hotel. Busy, small elevators. Nice people. See my other reviews for food recommendations in the neighborhood. -David Allen
