This was our first trip to New York and when booking had asked for a centrally located hotel. We were not disappointed, from the corner you could see the Empire State Building and short walking distance was Broadway and Time Square. From the moment we entered the lobby we were impressed with the decor. Some of the communal areas, halls etc were in need of a lick of paint, but certainly nothing to complain about or that would spoil our stay. W arrived early, but the receptionist found us a room early for us to check into, and actually upgraded our room. We were on the 24th floor. The room was spacious, there was 3 in our party and we had 2 good sized queen beds and 2 bathrooms. The rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. The rooms didn't have safes but there was a safe available free of charge at reception which could be accessed 24 hours a day. The staff were great, helped in giving directions, recommending places to eat. One of our party was disabled and the hotel had great wheelchair access. Great location, great staff, great building......loved it, would certainly stay again for our next trip!

Quality, clean rooms, friendly staff. Some rooms bigger than others, depending on what they assign to you. Convenient diner next door off hotel lobby.

Reception was friendly and fairly quick but the room left much to be desired. Plastic cups, no coffee maker, no iPhone dock, no in-room safe - at nearly $500/night (including taxes) this is unacceptable! Beds and pillows were very comfortable. Location was great and made our ins and outs a breeze. I rely on the Concierge for recommendations, but this Concierge was very disappointing. We asked for a place to enjoy "good cocktails and nice appetizers." She suggested two Irish pubs and a Mexican restaurant. Really? Said there were no places nearby that met our criteria. BUT, we found The Staghorn within a few blocks-Zagat rated and exactly what we had described! Bottom line, room was adequate but that's about it.

We booked through Expedia and this was mentioned when we arrived as if to suggest we were somehow not the same as other guests. When we got to our very small room, I called the front desk to ask if there was anything a little bigger as there were 2 of us. The clerk again said, "Well you booked through Expedia, this is what you get for Expedia rates" No offer to upgrade for a price, no options suggested at all.
The room was tiny, but clean and well appointed beds very comfortable. Bathroom a bit small for 2 women, with not much shelf space to put all our products:)
Staff otherwise were very pleasant and helpful. On-site restaurants are a nice added touch and you can't beat the location.

Room Tip: Standard rooms with 2 beds are very small, so just be aware.

What an amazing stay at this hotel, the room was a decent size, the bed and pillows first class, we loved it
Booking in was competent and courteous, there was a safe at reception that was easy AND safe to use, I would advise clients to use this facility.
The New Yorker is in the best position in New York, the Empire State and Times Square ‘just around the corner’
I did get the accommodation at a bargain price but, WOW I would pay top dollars to stay there again
Our 4 super days in New York were made even better by our stay in the New Yorker
