“So nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Yes, the lifts are slow, yes if you want a seat to enjoy your breakfast you'll need to wake a bit early. But the rooms are spacious (it's NY), the wifi is stable, the hotel is clean and, in the event of a problem, the staff will help you quickly and graciously. And the location... the ESB is watching over you and the public transportation is just a few steps away.

I'll come back

Room Tip: Above the 6th floor if you want to be quite

Location is great right at the heart of Manhattan. Most places would be walking distance from the hotel - less than half an hour to the village, to the park, etc.

Clean and tidy, helpful staff.

The breakfast is very disappointing though... Always crowded, very limited seating, seemed smiling was forbidden to the staff in the breakfast area and very limited choice of food. I would rather have not had it included in room price and would have eaten outside in the many many places nearby.

Another negative that I remember is that their lifts don't match the number of their guests, so for example, we ended up waiting for the lifts for upwards of 15 mins on numerous occasions.

My wife and I stayed there for three nights and the advertised price for that on Expedia (where I booked the hotel), was $555 but when it came to checking out, I was surprised that the total came to ~$650.

This could be my own fault as Expedia did say additional local charges would apply, but I did not expect these additional charges (Sales Tax, City Tax, Occupancy Tax, Javits Convention Fee), to be nearly $100! So the point is just beware when you book and I guess this would apply to all NY hotels.

Room Tip: Request north facing rooms for view of Empire State Building (the higher the better)

Dear Manu_MJ,
Thank you for your review. We’re sorry you were not pleased with the free breakfast. We have a room adjacent to the main breakfast room with a few extra tables and chairs for when the main room gets too crowded. We continually reevaluate our breakfast offerings to try to provide as much variety as possible and currently include hard-boiled eggs, fruit, yogurt, bagels, toast, pastries, cereals, and more.
The elevators can get held up especially during busy hours of the day, like in the morning when guests are going to breakfast or leaving for the day. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The taxes in New York City are very high and can add up quickly. These are all mandatory by the city and state of New York.
We hope you enjoyed your time in New York and look forward to welcoming you again soon!
Liz from Apple Core Hotels

Spent a week at the NYMA. Absolutly the hottest (temp.) it could possibly be. The room was as cool as needed. The front desk,maint., and housekeeping were all excellent. Very clean and conveniently located. Will definetly go back.

I stayed in the nyma hotel from July 8-14. We had a twin room and breakfast was included. Hotel is situated on 32nd street 6 ave. which is very convenient for empire state, Macy's and times sq. very close to numerous subways lines. Room small but not as small as I have had before in New York. Clean, good air con, and clean bathroom. Only con with hotel is that the lifts are very slow. Only two for whole hotel. But that's my only complaint. Breakfast was sufficient for our needs- bagels, toast, cereals, yogurts, fruit, juices, tea/ coffee. Would definitely stay there again!!

Had two great nights at the NYMA. The location is really good, our room looked out onto the Empire State building, a few mins walk from Times Square and mid way between Central Park and Liberty Island.
We had a King Bed and a great room on the 13th floor, lifts were no trouble. The staff were all really helpful. The hotel looks and feels really funky, modern and well though out, every inch of space is well used. The continental breakfast was an added bonus and good way to start your day.
If I was coming back to New York, I would stay here again.

The main advantage of this hotel are its location (it is next to the Empire State) and the prices offered.

I do not share the opinion of some other reviews about the size of the rooms; mine was quite large and well-equipped (large TV, safe, iron board). It was clean despite needing a bit of refurbishment, it had an efficient air-conditioner which is a must if you happen to spend your vacations during summertime. Breakfast is included in the room fare but the food offered is very basic and the breakfast room seems like a cheap motel one, you better have breakfast in nearby cafes.

The staff was very friendly, efficient (the battery of my TV remote control has been changed immediately after I signalled the issue) and always ready to help. This is the perfect place to stay if you want to discover NYC and do not plan to spend much time in the hotel (the amenities are basic), the value for money is certainly good by Manhattan standards.

We enjoyed our stay at NYMA. Small room, but adequate including a nice breakfast. Only negative would be the lifts. At peak times, such as breakfast they were always full and being on the 8th floor by the time they got to us we couldnt get on. Staff were very friendly and we enjoyed having the lounge upstairs to spend time watching TV and having coffee whilst waiting to go to the airport. Would definitely stay here again
