“Enjoyed our stay”
Reviewed February 28, 2010

Booked here for a Friday and Saturday because of low rates...somewhat hesitant due to some bad reviews. I was, however, pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Altho our rate was non refundable we were told that due to a huge snow storm we could cancel one night if needed to. We did make it though and were quickly checked into a lovely room. i loved the mix of historic Art Deco styling and modern updates. Our room was spacious enough, had a awesome view and was spotless. I was especially impressed by the security as day as well as night someone was on duty checking keys before you were allowed to get to the elevators. I would not hesitiate to stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Dear beachNmargarita,

We are so glad you like our renovations and all of our hard work paid off! The last part of our renovation was actually completed in 2008. Every guest room has been artfully renovated and re-designed with a modern Art Deco sophistication. Exceeding our guests’ expectations is a goal our hotel staff strives to achieve daily and with every guest interaction.

Sincerely,
New Yorker Staff

Really impressed with the New Yorker. Beautiful lobby (complete with piano player!) gave a great first impression. Our room was clean, comfortable and we could control the heat ourselves (pity we couldn't control our gross neighbour, who's every spit-up we could hear .. and there were *a lot*!!). Other than that, it was pretty quiet and we got decent sleep.

Water was hot and the tub took seconds to fill! Just what you need after a long day shopping! Staff were friendly and polite, bed was comfortable, ample storage space. No view from window, but that was no problem.

Very convenient location. Subway right outside, Macys just steps away.

Business Centre and Fitness Centre (& restrooms) can only be accessed with your room key card, which is also needed to pass security on the elevators. We thought this was a great idea.

Would definately stay here again.

Dear heath08nyc,

Thank you so much! We strive to do the best job we can and comments like yours are greatly appreciated. I am especially proud to read the notes about our staff. In addition, we take our guests’ security very seriously, so I am glad you took notice of our key card checkpoint in front of the hotel elevator bank.

You may also be interested in booking a room with a view for your next trip to New York City. Please inquire with our reservations department, and our agents will be glad to assist you.

Sincerely,
New Yorker Staff

If you have the money to get a suite then the hotel is worth it but I was with my son and didn't want to spend alot of money. The room was OLD and was so small. The bathroom was old and no shower just a bathtub.

We booked this hotel using the non-refundable feature at the New Yorker website. By doing this, we were able to save substantially on the overall price for our stay. The layout of the hotel was delightfully uncomplicated. We stayed in a Metro Queen Room, which was on the small side, but was more than enough room for the two of us. The room was well-kept, clean, modern, and comfortable. The cleaning staff was accomondating and respected our wish to not have our room cleaned daily. We stayed on the 19th floor and the view wasn't the best, but was still nice for the price. The valet service was expensive ($70.00 for two nights), but made things much easier.

We ate breakfast at the Tick-Tock Diner on the 1st floor of the hotel. The food was not quite as good as other surrounding diners, but it makes for an easy meal the morning of check out.

The hotel was lovely. Lots of room to move about. We had two double beds and could still get all our junk in it. Fab location as well, its on west 34th street so right across from penn station and just a hop skip and a jump away from both Macys and Times Square.

Dear finoni,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us! We’re glad that you found our location as “fab,” being close to Penn Station, Macy’s in Herald Square and Time Square. We hope it assisted in your exploration of our wonderful city. We look forward to your next stay with us!

I stayed with friends at the New Yorker Hotel in December 2009 and had the best time EVER!

Location:

Having not been there before, this hotel is amazing for first timersin New York! The location is excellent. Literally 10 minutes walk from Times Square, Macy's is a mere 5 minutes walk. Madison Square Garden is around the corner. Not mention the wide range of places to eat! Whatever you do make sure you dont take taxi's - they are too expensive! My advice would be to have really comfortable shoes and walk everywhere!

The Room:

The rooms were very clean and I could not complain. They came with a flat screen decent size TV with alot of channels.The beds were comfortable and the pillows were even more so! The rooms were cleaned once a day and all soaps/shampoo's were replenished. The bathrooms are small. But to be honest - who cares! Your in New York! We were hardly ever in the room!

Staff:

The staff at the hotel were great. Very helpful and friendly. We had no problems whatsoever. The concerige facility was great too. We were due to leave for the airport at 4pm and check out was at 12pm. The hotel can arrange to hold onto your luggage after you have checked out - it only cost us $2.00!

Do not listen to the people who have complained. I am a really fussy person myself and expect alot. But this hotel is definately the one to stay at to see what New York has to offer. You would be mad not to!

The room was very good, they had noted that there were 3 of us so we had a room that had originally been 2 rooms but had been knocked together, hence it was enormous and had 2 bathrooms. The downside was that the third bed - a put up - was uncomfortable with a plastic covered mattress. However, the main beds were very comfortable, with particularly good pillows.
The staff were helpful, particularly the congierge, who was fantastic.
