“Even in the wake of Sandy...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Me and my family got stuck at The Time Hotel for this horrific week. Thank god we were placed in a hotel and one, has a bar, two has a restaurant, and three, has some of the best staff I have ever seen. Jack and Andre, my front desk agents constantly provided updates, humor, and reassurance that all would be well among the chaos outside. The rooms are certainty not the biggest, but come on its times square in NYC!! If you want space go to the plaza or something. If you want a cool, hip, fun spot to lay low and really feel the personal connection between staff then this is your spot. I just wish we had more movie channels for the storm! Regardless, We will deff be back and again and I must say the entire staff, especially Andre and Jack should be told that their cool really helped us maintain ours.

Room Tip: more of an adult hotel with the bar in the back of reception. Although I saw plenty of kids, prob be...

The Time hotel is an excellent hotel, located in Times Square.
The room was fantastic, people were so polite.
Sure next time we visit New York we will stay at Time Hotel.
The most important was the location, five minutes walk for Times square, 15 minutes walk from Central Park and more other places. If you want to see many things in New York I think this is the best Hotel you can stay.
Rooms and hotel premises are very clean, quite rooms and comfortable beds.
I strongly recommended The Time hotel.
Thank you so much for everything. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

For $475 + Tax/night. It is a complete robbery! I can't believe they have the audacity to charge this much for what it is. It is the smallest and shabbiest hotel room my husband and I have ever stayed. And it is filthy! Hotel needs a complete sanitary makeover. It is absolutely CRIMINAL for them to take advantage of people who are stranded in NYC!

Dear EW001,

We sincerely apologize for a stay that was less than satisfactory. Please note that the rates throughout the city were already at a high prior to Hurricane Sandy. With the NYC Marathon, Halloween Weekend and other city events NYC is a popular destination in late October. We do hope to make it up to you next time around.

Sincerely,

Charlie

Fantastic hotel. Service was fab. So close to Broadway. The rooms were small but it was fine. The bar was chic and and food we had was gorgeous. This was for our honeymoon and we could not have picked a better hotel for the sight seeing trip we wanted. Loved it and will come again!

Booked last minute as a surprise overnight get-away with the wife. Best part was the ultimate suprise; It's right next door to our theater the Eugene O'Neill for Book of Mormon... what a great fluke that was.... The rooms are small. No other way to say it. The bed, and then a path around 3 sides. Our view was of the building next to us. Haven't spent much time in NYC so I'll assume that's standard. Closet non-existant; a cut-out hidden by a curtain. I guess that's all you need. Bathroom small but functional. Little shelf space. Great location overall. Dining option in building.

Microscopic room with even more microscopic bathroom, you need to shower sideways. Overpriced and overrated, this is not a 4 star hotel. It needs maintenance in elevators, carpets and walls. However, service is extraordinary from doorman to front desk. Location is unbeatable, just a few steps from Times Square.
