The location of this hotel is fabulous, particularly if you plan on arriving and departing from Penn Station as it is just one and a bit blocks from the 7th Avenue exit, in Koreatown. It puts you within walking distance of the Empire State building, Times Square, Macy's. It isn't even that far to walk to the Rockefeller Centre (about 16 blocks), which we did one night, to enjoy the Christmas lights and see the huge tree. We had a junior suite with two double beds. It was clean, the beds comfy and the room was larger than expected. Although it had a sofa, it had seen better days and was not at all comfortable. Good shower and bathroom facilities and fairly quiet (there was minor noise from the hallway). The lift was pretty slow and in demand, resulting in us frequently taking the stairs. On our arrival, we were early for check in and they suggested we sit in the bar/breakfast room and have a free coffee whilst we waited which was nice (however, as this room is multipurpose, you can only use it as such depending on the time of day). It sounds petty to say that the 'continental' breakfast is awful. It's not bad but it lacks imagination and effort. Half a sandwich (you don't actually know what's in it), yoghurt, a mini croissant and an apple or banana, every day, no variation. Okay for one day but quickly became mind numbingly boring. The hotel does provide luggage storage which we used as we had a late flight. It wasn't the cheapest hotel and despite the good location and everything being quite acceptable, I would probably try another hotel next time.

The best feature of this hotel for us was its location. It’s close to some great restaurants and shopping, and is within walking distance from the Madison Square Garden. The worst feature of the hotel was the uncomfortable mattress. The room was not bad, but the carpet was not clean. I wouldn’t say filthy, but it could have used a god cleaning or shampooing. We couldn’t rest well due to the very uncomfortable mattress. Stayed two night and will not be going back.

Great location, one block from Empire State Building, Macys, Time Square and 10/15 minutes walk to Central Park. Subway nearby also. Reasonable priced buffet breakfast offered. Room was on 11th floor, clean and fair size, however they do need an update. Very tired looking. Our window looked on to blank wall but wonder if a front room on to main street would have been noisy.

Hotel Stanford is a reasonably priced hotel that is very close to Penn station which makes it extremely convenient. Although the check in was a bit slow, the room, albeit small, was clean and had everything I needed for my visit. Don’t count too much on the breakfast because it was just a croissant and a yogurt, plus there wasn’t any place to sit down so I had to go elsewhere for breakfast..The hotel is in the middle of Koreatown so if you like Korean food you have lots of choices nearby.

The hotel room which we had on the 6th floor was very hot. We notified reception about it three times ,but they seemed unable to adjust it. As a result we could not sleep properly in the night with my children and wife , up in the early hours. We did open the window, but did not want to leave open all night as it was below freezing. In the last couple days of our stay our window was open so much that when we returned in the evening it was freezing and became boiling by the middle of the night as we closed the window on our arrival in the evening. Finally manager did give us a complimentary bottle of wine to say sorry and did agree to move our room on our last full day. Unfortunately that was too late. Wish they would have suggested it in the beginning of the six day stay. The junior Suite room was fine in size, the beds were comfortable , though a bit too small to share for two people, and there was a fridge and flat screen TV. Sofa looked like it had better days and the furniture was was quite worn.The bathroom had a nice shower and plenty of hot water., though ceiling was a bit mouldy.The room was cleaned well every day. The bathroom door however could use a lock on it. The hotel gave a complimentary breakfast on the ground floor, this was very basic and included coffee which was very weak, tea, orange juice, fruit and plain croissants. The coffee was not very nice and there was very limited room to sit., 10-12 people at the time. Considering there are 12 floors in the hotel with around 20 rooms per floor,it does seem complimentary breakfast offer is just a gimmick to lure people in. The staff in this breakfast room did not make you feel welcome as they kept on looking over. On our last day they cleared away the drinks and croissants before notifying us. On website hotel advertised free Mr Snood coffee, but when I asked about it,the person who attended to breakfast quite rudely pointed out the dishwasher coffee is the only one for us. The hotel did a premium breakfast on the first floor which cost $5 per morning. It consisted of sausage, bacon , scrambled eggs, croissants, biscuits, coffee and juice. It was nice and the coffee was much better. I do feel that this should have been the complimentary breakfast. It was advertised on the website that if one stays three nights or more the premium breakfast was for free. The manager said this did not apply to us as we had got the accommodation at a good rate. In our mind we paid quite a lot off money for 6 day stay. I don’t feel that we should have been discriminated considering sleepless nights we’ve experienced anyway. The hotel had a Japanese restaurant next to it, it was ok, but the service was lacking. The hotel location on 32 street was good with an easy walk to Time Square, Empire State, Grand Central an Central Park. We would not stay in this hotel again. We could not sleep as temperature in the room was not adjustable. Don’t book it unless you can cope with either extreme hot rooms or cold after window opening and noise coming in. Don’t get influenced by free breakfast, you most likely won’t even have space to have it,never mind enjoy it. On our arrival receptionist took our credit card number for eventualities and $90 were taken out of the account straight away though she advised us nothing will be taken out. Staying in this hotel spoiled our first trip to New York and free bottle of wine really does not make up for it.
