Stayed here for 5 nights on my first ever trip to New York. If you are going by shuttle to the hotel from the airport be prepared for a long journey. Took us nearly 3 hours, hotel is about 30 mins drive away. Suggest taxi or different shuttle service not - Supershuttles.
Requested a room with a view, which is exactly what we got, could see the Hudson River and the ferrys etc. Room had 2 queen size beds, very comfortable, excellent shower pressure.
Hotel is situated approx 25 min walk from Times Square, 10 mins from Empire State Building. Has a cafe/diner attached to the hotel which was ok. The food was hot and tasty but better places to dine in NY. Directly across the road from McDonalds (24hr), a pizza place and T.G.I Fridays- which i recommend for lunch or dinner.

When I was booking this hotel I was a bit concerned because of a few bad reviews. However, I am glad to say we just got back and had a wonderful stay at the New yorker. We arrived a bit early well 10 a.m and were pleasantly surprised to be checked into our room. The Hotel staff was professional and accommodating. On our last day of our stay after check out they kept our luggage for the day as we went to see some more of New York. The location of the hotel is prime. We were even able to find this great Indian Restaurant down the block with great food. Right next to Penn Station. The room was small but typical for newyork. Everything was clean with LCD and Bathroom was nice size with good pressure shower. Bed was great and we slept like babies. We did not spend too much time in the room because its New York people....go out and explore. We will always stay at the New Yorker on our future trips to New York.

Room Tip: Get there early and book on a weekday if you can.

We found the location to be wonderful for trying to see as much of New York in a 7 night stay. Room was very small for what we paid, but didn't really matter as we didn't spend very much time in there. Price was a little high for what we got though. Staff were lovely, security were very helpful. Gift shop downstairs was very reasonable! Shower wasn't great, hot-cold-hot if you shower at peak times.

We had an excellent stay at the New Yorker (although we had a problem booking in as the receptionist was looking at the date of the booking not the dates we were staying but was very apologetic when she finally sorted it out which took some time). The rooms were fairly small but adequate and exceptionally clean and we had clean towels every day even though we had hung them up on alternative days.

The Tick Tock diner was excellent, we had dinner there the first night and breakfast on three days and couldn't fault the food and we were always served glasses of iced water, with the exception of the last day when the waitress who served us obviously didn't enjoy her job. It took her ages to come and serve us and when she finally came she certainly wasn't as pleasant as the rest staff who had served us. and she then bought one of us the wrong omelette and wasn't very happy about replacing it.. She didn't bring us any water and never asked if we would like more coffee or tea. Such a shame especially on our last day!

The New Yorker is in an excellent location and we were able to walk to Macy's, Times Square, and Grand Central Station and in the evening we walked to a very good Italian Restaurant and also to John's Pizza Restaurant. We didn't even need a taxi from Newark Airport as you just get the air transit train and then change to a mainline train to Penn Street Station and the hotel is just around the corner. We would all certainly stay
at the New Yorker again and loved New York.

My daughter and I traveled to New York from Boston on the train and discovered that the New Yorker was quite close to Penn Station. We loved the Art Deco decor and while the lobby was busy we were quickly checked in to our room. We were lucky enough to get a refurbished room which was on a corner and quite large. The bathroom was large and luxurious with marble and tile. The diner was somewhat overpriced but there are so many other food choices around the hotel that this was inconsequential. We easily hopped on subways to tour Manhattan and were within easy walking distance to the Theatre and Times Square. We did have trouble trying to get information from the concierge as this really is a very busy hotel. We would definitely stay here again.

The new yorker hotel is just all round brilliant. We were visiting new york fo the first time this summer and so looking for a place to stay, we didn't want somewhere too expensive as we felt in a city like new york you would hardly be in it. I was'nt quite sure what to expect and i was more than pleasantly suprised. The interior and grandeur of the lobby was similar to such grand iconic buildings as the empire state and rockerfeller. This levely of quality continued everywhere from the corridors to the rooms. From reading other reviews I had expected the rooms to be extremely small, because of this my party of 4 booked two rooms. The two rooms did provide some more space but the rooms were not as small as made out... Infact if on a budget 4 could sleep in one room.
The dining was also at the same standard as the rest of the hotel. The tick tok diner provided good quality 1950s themed dining at a reasonable price.

The hotel also could not have been situated better... It was a 5 minute walk to many of the big attractions such as times square, macy's, empirestate etc. It was also just across the road from penn station where there was a subway stop as well as a train that ran to the airport

The staff were very helpfull and provided emaculate service.

If I return to new york I would not consider even looking for a different hotel as the new yorker was OUTSTANDING!!!!
