The last thing you want after a 7 hour flight is a noisey hotel room rigt next to the elevator machine room (2301), after a brief discussion with the desk manager she moved me to another room, which although quiet had only a tiny window and no ventilation (not ideal when travelling on your own on business and likely to spend some time on your room working). Too tired to change again the same desk manager arranged to have my luggage moved to another room. What a difference! Seems that rooms ending in 70 or near by, are quiet and have a view towards the Hudson.
Bell staff were also very helpful in arranging cabs/airport shuttles etc.
For getting about the city the location of the New Yorker couldn't be better.

Room Tip: 2370 and nearby is great if you only need one bed.

This is a two star hotel at best. It would be fine if it claimed to be a two star hotel, but it pretends it's a four star, and that is a complete lie. The rooms are small, old and dingy. The shower is what you'd expect from a motel 6 in rural Nevada. There are no amenities.
On the plus side, the Internet is fast, so if you want to live out some fantasy of being a super-hacker in your dark and depressing lair, this will do well for you.

This was a great hotel for my partner and myself the food in the Coopers Tavern was excellent as was the food in the Tick Tock Diner. The room was fantastic with a free upgrade to an excellent room with a view of the Empire State Building. Couldn't fault the hotel but after staying closer to Times Square on another trip I think the New Yorker was a bit far out of the way for what we were looking for.x

I always arrive at Penn Station, and the hotel choices in the immediate vicinity have been sketchy... especially the dreadful Hotel Pennsylviania. But this time we tried The New Yorker and were very pleased, especially as we got a good weekend rate via Expedia. It's just a block north of the station on 8th Avenue. The lobby has been restored to its former Art Deco glory, and our room (#3115) was small but comfortable and quiet. There were two of us traveling with overnight bags, so the small space was just fine. Two people with full-size suitcases would likely find the space a challenge. The bathroom was fine with an old-fashioned tub/shower and plentiful hot water and good water pressure. The low, round-seat toilet was a challenge for us oldsters with bad knees. There was an adequate closet with a safe and a small desk with chair. The queen-size bed was very comfortable--something I'm a stickler about. The wall-mounted flat-screen TV was appreciated. For such a large hotel, we were surprised by the friendly desk staff and quick check-in. Breakfast as the adjoining Tic Toc Diner featured abundant diner food--again with friendly service. We will definitely look to The New Yorker as our first choice in the future--if we can get a good rate. Escalating Manhattan hotel prices are preventing us from coming to NYC as often as we'd like.

Room Tip: Request an upper floor.

Spent 4 nights here, in a standard queen room. Small, as befitting New York, but comfortable. No space to lay uit my yoga mat and practice, that was a disappointment. On the 33rd floor, without asking for it, which was great. No noise from the ongoing reconstruction during my stay but I wasn't in during the day and it was round the 29th floor. It's all a bit old and worn, but still has charm. The bathroom could be cleaner, but it wasn't offputting. The bed was really comfy. Staff very friendly. The pizza place across the street serves gruesome fatty pizzaslices, don't go there unless you need the extra triglycerides. There's the obligatory Starbucks at the corner, and a great deli just 1 block away when you take a left from the entrance, on the corner of 36th street (Amici 36) for your daily food needs. i thought that looked better than the restaurant in the hotel (Ticktock diner, didn't try it). Great location, if you don't mind walking a little you can get anywhere from central park to Bryant park. I will certainly consider this hotel again whenever I return to New York.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up but do realise that for those who are sensitive to it, you can feel the build...

We stayed here for 3 nights, and really loved it. The room was always clean, very quiet (we rarely heard the other guests in the hall) and a good size! The bathroom was tiny and a little dated (think 70s subway tiles) but who spends a ton of time in the bathroom anyway? It's New York City! The staff were very helpful, and kept the guests safe, requiring everyone to show a room key before being allowed in the elevator lobby at night. There are both a diner and a bar attached to the hotel, the dnier is 24 hours, which is helpful if you arrive late at night and are hungry.

The hotel is across from Penn Station, which makes it easy to not only get to, but to get around the city. It is also close to Time Square, Bryant Park, the High Line and Hell's Kitchen. There are a lot of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and stores in the vacinity.
