“Delightful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

The staff is delightful, in this "lipstick building" hotel. It is tall with tiny floors ... but typical for NYC. They serve a delicious breakfast with many protein choices in the morning. The team really works hard to make sure each guest is pleased!

Room Tip: Get a higher floor, to help decrease the street noise

Stayed here in May 2013 , don't be put of by the negative comments, this hotel is in a brilliant location and all the staff go out of there way to help make your stay as comfortable as possible, regarding the size of the rooms it is true they are on the small size but there were four of us and we easily had room , anyway this is New York you only need the room to sleep in . Breakfast can be busy at times but was well cooked and kept us going throughout the day. we emailed and asked for a room with a view , what a view we had Empire state ,Freedom tower . Just round the corner there is a pizza shop that due large slices for a $ they are really good and definitely worth trying . would i stay again ? YES WITHOUT A DOUBT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The hotel is very small and needs some renovation however it is perfectly located for tourists. Breakfast can be a little hectic and is typically American. Can get a little annoying waiting for the one lift when it's busy.
Very fast wifi !

Room Tip: High up for a good view.

Good hotel for New York City break. Rooms high standard, though compact compared to most US hotel rooms, I've had smaller ones though, so I thought it was good for NY. coffee maker, flat screen tv, good hair dryer in bathroom. Good blackout blinds and fairly quiet high up (we were on 27th floor) so we got a good nights sleep every night - we didn't leave ac on though as bit noisey, but the room didnt get hot despite 25c overnight heat. Great view from rooms and exactly what was promised on booking - view of Empire State and freedom tower in distance plus Hudson River.

Lobby spacious with free lemonade when you got back from day out, much needed as it was super hot. Staff friendly and helpful. Good free breakfasts, more on offer then I've had at other NY hotels, though it got busy. we only gave it a miss on one of the days as couldn't find seat so decided to eat out instead (we could have taken it up to our room as they provided trays).

Great location, 5mins to subway at PA bus terminal and 7mins to Times Square. Always felt safe returning to hotel late at night. Walked to/from penn station for trains to airport in about 15mins with big cases so no need for taxis.

This hotel is clean and the service is fantastic. Most tourists come to New York to see Times Square, and other main attractions. This hotel is in a good location for the subway and for Times Square. Unfortunately, this is not the cleanest area of Manhattan, but it works well for attractions.

As a little side tip: If you don't want to eat the bleak continental breakfast, walk along 39th or 8th in the morning and you can find vendors selling bagels and coffee for a $1.25, which might be the best deal in Manhattan. You can also find people selling breakfast gorditas that are quite delicious.

This is a good hotel with great value for money. The location of this hotel is unbeatable. It's just off Times Square, a block away from the New York Times Building. The rooms sizes are very small but okay for Times Square. The breakfast is limited but lots of shops outside to grab a bite. Bit of a shady street to go at night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, if there is one.

I like the location, it's very near the tourist spots in NY like the broadway district,restaurant row, times square etc...room is too small but clean, elevators were too slow maybe because of the 30+ floor bldg accommodating lots of guests... breakfast is okay, staff were very helpful and friendly... overall i enjoyed my stay there.
