I booked the Staybridge Suites - NYC/Times Square largely based on other Trip Advisor Reviews. I flew in on a Friday and my sister and a friend joined me Saturday morning.
Location: It is located on 40th Street, not too far from 8th. It was an easy walk from Penn Station. There is also a subway station nearby. Times Square is a few blocks away, but very easy to get to.
Check in: I arrived at the hotel around 5pm. It was busy, but the reception staff immediate greeted me, thanking me for being a Priority Club member. Because of my PC status, they gave me a "welcome bag" with chocolates and pretzels, which I thought was really nice. They acknowledged my sister and friend (by name) who would arrive the next morning.
Room: My first room was on the 28th floor and I had a view of the Empire State Building and had a king sized bed. Being NYC, the room was a little small; it included a kitchenette (well appointed). The bed was very comfortable and I slept great! I had to go down to the desk to sort out the issue of 1 bed and 3 adults. They said they would rectify it in the morning, which was fine. The next day, they said they'd move my bags to my new room once it was cleaned - we just had to leave our packed bags in the room. When we returned that night, reception provided new keys and we had a room with 2 beds for the 3 of us.
The rooms are very modern. A/C and heat controls, good towels, etc. My sister, my friend, and I all slept well and were pleased with our stay.
Breakfast: Breakfast included a nice variety of hot food, cereals, baked goods, and dairy products. There was also coffee and juice. As other reviews have stated, it can get very busy.
Services: They have the Bridgemart (small store), gym, concierge (helpfulness varied), and do receptions during the week. The staff was really great - very friendly and helpful.
Elevators: The 3 elevators get very busy, especially at peak times.
I would absolutely stay here again! We were very happy with our stay.
