Just back from New York having stayed at the New Yorker hotel for 4 nights, we requested a twin room and due to the hurrican I called the hotel to ensure all was ok - only to be informed that a standard "double" room was reservered. When asking what could be done, I was advised an upgrade to a view room that provided twin double beds would cost me 20 dollars a night plus taxes more - so as me and my mate were traveling I had no option but to accept. I over heard a conversation with 2 other guests who had also reverved a twin but were given a double - so maybe a call to the hotel the week before traveling is wise.
When you arrive at the hotel you realise just how "BIG" it is, but it give a much smaller feel when inside, the staff were wonderfully friendly and my only issue is check in queues, so my advice is do not try and check in before 4pm (between 3 - 4 the queue was a nightmare). One queued I was told my room was not ready and come back in 1 hour, no big issue had I not spend 20 mins in the queue. Killing time in the bat which provides happy hour most days and the food is ace - the skyscrap burger is well worth a try.
Once the hour had gone and so had the queue, Ruth on reception was lovely and even offered me a room change 1 day in to get a view of the Empire State building as the room I was given had panaramic view of the Hudson River. There is free safe hire so bear that in mind when checking in.
The room 3403 was large for a New York City hotel, with a walk in wardrobe and 2 good sized double beds and space tp walk about - better then most London hotels I have stayed in, Small table and an arm chair and tv stand with 2 windows and an amazing Hudson River view over to New Jersey. The bathroom was so clean and load of fresh towels and they are bath towels not sheets so people on here said they were small, well not they are bath towel sized.
The room had climate control and free wi-fi, smart HD flat screen tv and loads of channels to choose from. For breakfast the Tick Tock diner was amazing, always busy and the staff are so friendly and worth the tips I left every time I eat there.
My only gripe is once you check out - they will not allow you to use the hotel rest rooms, so my advice is just use the once in the bar (at the back - and are large is you need to get changed prior to leaving).
The location is amazing, there are subway enterances around the corner and Times Square and the Empire State building are only a few blocks away, Mace's is around the corner and everything else is either a short walk or subway away.
I would highty recommend this hotel to anyone - i noticed alot of negative comments about silly little things, but honestly just checkin after 4 and go for a view room its worth the extra (as a few said a standard room were a little on the small side).
I would use this hotel again the Art deco design and insides are magic - makes you want to go back in time to the 30's and see it in its original glory.
