Recently stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms on the 8th floor of the hotel and thought it was outstanding. From a design perspective, I loved how the light sconces have picked up on the overall art deco and traditional design elements of the hotel. I also liked how the wall sconces and the desk lamp were similar in desig and tied the room together very nicely…Even the design of the drawer pulls on the night stands and dresser worked with the overall design…

I worked for an hour or so at the desk and it is perfect sized and the chair extremely comfortable. The bed was firm, the linens were high-quality and I love the beaded leather headboard. The size of the room was very generous by NYC standards and the stall shower and pedestal in the bathroom were great…I’m less of a TV guy but wow…the room comes complete with a sizable flat screen TV. The bathroom linens were the right combination of soft but absorbent.

Overall, the room, and whole experience at the hotel, was very impressive.

A great rate allowed us to upgrade to the Tower Suite, which is super roomy with a separate livingroom and bedroom, each with its own tv. Stayed a week. What we loved about room 4009....
-Amazing views out all windows.(see pictures)
-Super comfy bed.
-Wonderful housekeeping staff kept it spotless and always greeted us warmly.
-Big bathtub for a soak after a long day.
-Location location... not only for walking, but for getting anywhere in the city. Cross-town bus stops across the street... ACE lines downstairs and 2,3&4 lines a block away.
-Tower suite has a roomy 'fridge with some drinks which were no charge... and they kept the coffee pods coming as we went through 6 or 8 a day!
-Free internet was good.
-Elevator to the 40th floor was amazingly fast and we rarely had to wait more than a minute max.
-Security to the elevator (don't understand why this bothers some... It's NYC... good to know that people on your floor are actually staying there.)
-It was snowing and the heating was GREAT and very quiet.... also loved that the living area and bedroom had separate controls so we could keep the bedroom cool for sleeping while keeping the rest warm.
-Included breakfast on 39th floor was good enough to get you going with good variety and a little protein (cheese).
Disappointments:
-They knew it was a big birthday for hubbie, but acknowledged in no way.
-Unfriendly woman at the breakfast room check-in (but really helpful guy working the room.
-Lost all hot water for several minutes (per other warnings on this site)... it only hapened to us once during the week, but once is too much. It is clearly a problem at the hotel, so fix it already! This is the main reason for 4 instead of 5 stars.

All in, we had an amazing stay at the New Yorker Hotel. It's charming and old-world and the tower suites make you feel like you're at home. We really could have happily stayed a month. Only hope we can return one day.

Room Tip: Scaffolding outside of some of the hotel... call ahead to make sure you get a room where there is no...

I stayed at the New Yorker a few years ago now. This hotel is in a great location! The rooms are very nice and have everything you basically need for your stay. We did not spend very much time in our room at all as we were out every single day sight seeing!! Loved New York and will be staying again hopefully :-))

Good hotel and friendly staff. We had 3 rooms between us, all of which differed greatly in size but all did what they were supposed to do- gave us a good nights sleep! The location is the biggest draw being within walking distance of Times Square, etc. and close to the Subway. A great base for our trip.

We had a very good experience at The New Yorker. Upon arrival at 2pm, there was a long line at check in. The line moved very quickly, and we were checked in by a very friendly clerk. We went up to our room on the 23rd floor, and the room was not the smallest we have been in in NYC. it was very nice, clean, comfortable bed, with a view of the river. This is an older hotel, so yes, the bath had some signs of mold in the grout, but the room overall was clean and comfortable.

The location was very convenient, and we walked to many local bars and eateries. We took a cab up to the Theater District upon checkout.

We bid on this hotel, and got it at a very reasonable price. So for the price we paid, it exceeded our expectations.

We stayed in the New Yorker Friday - Sunday nights, price was pretty good for the city, about $300/night before tax, and parking (after $400ish). We stayed on the top floor in a suite, and where not large, keeping in mind the age of the building ((c)1929), amenities ample, and views were great. Also i will note that if you're in NY, why stay in your room??? Its nothing more than a place to keep your things safe, sleep and enjoy the sunrise right? With so much to do i could have stayed a month! Central location was close to 3 Subway lines (all within 3-4 blocks 5-10mins walking), which was great. The Tick Tock Dinner right off the lobby was great for breakfast, quick and efficient.

Room Tip: Stay high up, views are better, pricier but you only live once.

Because of the proximity to Madison Square Garden, where we were attending a rock concert, and after reading the reviews for the New Yorker we decided to try it on Valentines Day for an overnight stay. Some of the poor reviews did make us apprehensive but the good were many more than the bad so we decided to give it a try. We are very happy we did. We had a one bedroom suite that included breakfast for two for $261 for the night. In NYC that is quite a bargain. The room was very comfortable and offered amenities that included two flat screen tv's, a Keurig coffee maker that included complimentary k-cups, a refrigerator that contained complimentary bottled water and soda and a magnificent view of the Empire State Building. The staff was professional, accommodating and friendly. Would definitely stay again!!

Room Tip: Go for the one bedroom suite and stay on the higher floors.
