“Great find in midtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2014

Needed a simple hotel in midtown for business and am so happy I found Gotham Hotel. It's a small boutique hotel - with friendly service and great ammenities - like a wine bar/restaurant and a snack bar/stocked fridge in the room. Great!

Room Tip: I stayed on the 8th floor, but I believer higher up floors have balconies.

Every time I go to the city for business, I stay here. I love how they greet you the minute you walk through the door with your check in details & a glass of wine. This is one of the very few hotels in NYC that still offer balconies. Sometimes you are lucky enough to get the street facing view. The rooms are perfect for business travel and the wifi is decent. The oranges left by the bed at turndown are one of my favorite things. Their soaps & lotions are the best. And the showers are perfect to wash away a day of conference room presentations. It's a nice retreat at the end of the day. And the staff knows you by name- always waiting to open the door for you and help you into a cab. It's close enough to access the mainstream but far enough away to escape the hustle & bustle. Subway access is a bit of a walk, but a pleasurable one. Not the best for family travel. But perfect for me on business.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor or street facing view.

The 19th and 20th January 2014 my girlfriend and I were bitten by bedbugs in room 162. We didn't expect bedbugs in such a hotel. The management didn't apologise at all !! (except for the housekeeping manager). They brought an "expert" saying that there were no bedbugs. We showed them pictures of our bodies covered in bites... they said it could be a bad reaction to soap !!

When we first arrived the room they gave us was still messy from the previous customer (no housekeeping)...again no apology !! Didn't expect bedbugs in such a hotel and top of that be treated this way.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Gotham Hotel last night and we were very pleased. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. They even offered us a complementary glass of wine when we arrived (which is always a good thing). I liked the decor of the room and the bed was so comfortable.

We have just got back from spending three nights at the Gotham hotel - overall it was a lovely experience. The hotel is walking distance to Times Square, subway stations, rockafella centre and grand central station to name a few. Really good location and convenient and safe to walk back at night. The rooms are modern and clean - beds are really comfortable and rooms are changed daily.

The staff were so helpful and looked up anything they could to help us with our enquiries - there is a nice coffee bar and deli next door if you want something cheaper than the resturant to eat breakfast etc.

We stayed for just one night at the Gotham Hotel over the Christmas holidays. While we were promised a nice room with a view and a terrace. We quickly found out, that while the room was clean and fairly standard, our view consisted of a view to the next building. We were on the 10th floor and our terrace consisted of a seemingly 4x4 area with barely any light to the sky. I am not sure what the purpose of a terrace is looking over the air conditioning units, but it certainly did not look like the terrace that we were expecting. Pricing differed significantly between booking.com and the website. In fact when I called because the website would not complete the booking (kept hanging), i was quoted a price that $100 OVER what the website announced. When I told reception, they said 'hold on'. They came back to me agreeing with the website price. One further thing. There really was no concierge the whole time we were there--the check in area didn't have a clue about restaurants in the area. She looked up restaurants on the internet, which I had already done myself. I did not access any other facilities. All in all--an average experience!

Room Tip: Ask specifically for a room to the street, don't bother with the terrace if you get put in the b...

Great location, nice rooms with balconies (if you want a street view you will need to request), three rooms per floor, friendly helpful staff - the restaurant/bar is pricey.
Note that there are no coffee makers in rooms.
