I stayed here to celebrate my 50th in September.My children selected it as I love Art Deco, I wasn't disappointed! The Hotel was very nice. The lobby was impressive.Each floor had a lovely seating area with table and lamps, which lent to the Art Deco feel. We stayed on the 37th floor with a spectacular view overlooking The Empire State and Chrysler building. The room was very clean and comfortable if a little small, with a flat screen TV The bathroom was also on the small side, but very nicely decorated, with a couple of original features.. We stayed for four nights, my only criticism if pushed, would be that the shower went from freezing cold to boiling hot in seconds then back again. I suppose being on the top floors with such spectacular views some sacrifices have to be made!! It wasn't the end of the world, though if you were travelling with children, it may be an issue.The bed was lovely and comfortable, we only saw staff on check in and check out and they were very friendly and efficient. I would certainly return to The New Yorker. It's in a great location with Penn station just across the street. Highly recommended

This is a belated review I am writing after staying in the hotel this summer. First off, let me just say - yes, the rooms are small, very small compared to hotel rooms in the rest of the country. However, this is true of almost any hotel in New York City, especially Manhattan. There just is not enough room for large hotel rooms as they are found in other parts of the country - real estate is at a premium. But I loved staying at the New Yorker.

The hotel is older, but I found the vintage features to be charming and I also enjoyed staying where so many prominent literary and historical figures stayed over the years. My room was tiny but comfortable and I loved my vintage-style bathroom. Room was very clean and quiet. I rarely heard noise from the hall or from the adjoining rooms, and door opening/closing noise has started to become my pet peeve in hotels, where you can hear doors slamming open and closed all day and night. Maid service was efficient and everything in the room worked well, and the staff was responsive when I needed them. No problems with the elevators. I found the room to be kind of an "oasis" from the city's noise and hustle.

The best part of the hotel is the location. The New Yorker is located literally on top of Penn Station and any entrance to the station - from which you can get anywhere in New York you need to - is mere feet away from the entrance. Madison Square Garden is just down the street, and there is nice shopping down the block in both directions - clothing, shoes, etc. Fifth Avenue is close and you can buy just about anything clothing-wise you want within a few blocks of the hotel, if you're inclined that way. The New Yorker is in a very busy and bustling area with lots of tourists, if that bothers you. But it is very easy to get cabs in front of the building (if you don't take the subway), and hotel is also in a very walkable neighborhood. I walked back to the hotel from Radio City Music Hall one night at about 10 pm and had a great time and never felt unsafe. The Tick Tock Diner, under the hotel, is OK. I ate there for one meal and it was nothing special, typical diner food. But it is nice to have an onsite meal option for long days when you don't feel like searching for a restaurant.

What I will say about the area is that it is kind of touristy and not upscale - there are mostly chain stores, chain restaurants, etc. If you're looking for posh, or quirky, you'll need to try another neighborhood. But that's relatively easily accomplished, with the subway so nearby.

I really think this is a gem as far as Manhattan hotels go - no frills, but nice rooms in a great location for a relatively reasonable price. During this same trip, I visited a friend who was staying in a very expensive upper East Side hotel and her room was no nicer or bigger than mine - but had cost her three times as much per night. In Manhattan, you do not always get bigger or better when you pay more, when it comes to hotels.

Room Tip: Try to stay on the side of the hotel that doesn't face 34th Street or 8th Avenue - the back side...

I stayed at this hotel w/a Road Scholar tour, and found it quite nice. I liked the character of the 1930s-style building. The room was very large, w/2 bathrooms and 2 closets. The beds were quite comfortable, and everything worked. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was just perfect: blocks from the Empire State Building, the Theater District, Times Square, etc. The hotel coffee in the conference rooms was dreadful, but there was a Starbucks right across the street, so all was well.

My wife and I stayed here for five nights on the 40. floor in the Tower suite, an excellent room, spacious with a magnificent view of The Empire State building and the Chrysler building in the other direction. Fresh softdrinks in the fridge every day, very clean and very good beds! We loved staying at this hotel. Close to Times Square, Macy's, The Empire State building, Fifth Avenue, Hells Kitchen Area... The staff was very friendly! Breakfast in the sky-lounge was ok, not a lot to eat, but ok. In weekends you get a voucher for breakfast at the Tick Tock restaurant. That was also ok. Next time we visit NY, We will come back to the New Yorker Hotel!

The hotel was a perfect location for our visit to New York. The room was on the small side but clean and tidy. We were on the 33rd floor with a great view of the city. The staff were all pleasant and helpfull. We only really returned to it at night and were so tired fell into the comfy bed and woke up the following day refreshed and ready to go again. There were vending machines on our floor, cold drinks, ice and crisps. Didn't find a coffee machine. Nothing in room to make your own either.

We bought the metro card at the near buy 34th st subway and best buy. We must have used it 3 or 4 times a day for the E train, Up town or Down town so simple. Got within walking distance of ever sight.

Would look to stay there again on our next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room with a view

The New Yorker is a true landmark, it has old world charm, the staff are very friendly (not that common in NY) and some of the fixing and in particular the chandeliers in the ballrooms are incredible. But the rooms are small though perfectly serviceable and some of the public areas are a little shabby. I have stayed here quite a few times and would do so again, but honestly more for convenience than anything else.
