Reviewed July 10, 2013

The suite was lovely, the view great, of both the river and the Chrysler building really good. Unfortunately they nearly killed me. I had asked for hypoallergenic bedding and when I checked in, the first thing the desk said to me, was not to worry all the bedding was hypoallergenic. I was having a fabulous trip and each day as I woke up sicker, ignored it. Eyes got swollen,couldn't breath, soldiered on. after 3rd horrible night was leaving and looked at pillows- all were Down. On the plane landing my eardrum hurt so much I lost hearing for hours. My friend complained after I left- they said they would send an apology-which never happened. My friend also left a letter to be mailed at the front desk (had a museum card to be returned) which never made it back to its owner. Maybe with new staff-but for time being- stay away.

Friendly staff and clean, comfortable, spacious rooms. It's rated 4-star which is pretty accurate for NYC, (it would be a 31/2 elsewhere but New York city has it's own standards). We were surprised to find a kitchenette- although we did not have any use for it, it was nice to buy our own water and keep it cool. Definitely get a sandwich from the Amish Market next door.

Room Tip: We stayed in a basic suite on the 14th floor- see if you can get a room room there

For travelers who need wifi, DO NOT stay in this hotel. It will never work, and they charge $15 a day. Hotel staff cannot help as they do not even attempt to assist or follow up. They will transfer you to their external provider and expect you to work it out with them.
Service, what service? No warmth at all. They do not use your name, call you by your room number, do not greet, do not smile, and do not offer help. If you attempt to ask them a question or address an issue, all you get is foul looks from them. I guess at least I know they are not fake.
Room needs severe maintenance although room is very spacious and comfortable.
There are so many points I can add on to this review, but I cannot be bothered with a hotel that does not even try.
Pros: Location and spacious room
Cons: Everything else

Room Tip: You will never get a quiet room. I had a corner room but corridor is narrow and staff talk so loud...

Thank you for taking the time to share your impressions of our Midtown Hotel. It is thoroughly disappointing to learn when a guests' stay does not live up to their expectations in all ways and, despite the change on guestroom accommodations, you were not impressed at every turn. It is always our hope that our guests have the best stay possible and we apologize if we did not achieve that for you.

I especially liked this hotel because of the room. Its a boutique hotel but you can see that they utilize the space very wisely and designed it very well. There was a living room and bedroom which was nice for a 1 week stay. The bathroom was a bit small. Very modern and trendy feelings without it being overwhelming. I would definitely stay here again.

My friends and I decided to take in a show on Broadway and after reading some of the reviews, I was a little skeptical, about the Wyndham Midtown 45 located at 205 West 35th Street (between 7th Ave & 8th Ave). We opted for the penthouse suite and I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the room was along with the views of Midtown Manhattan.

This hotel is in a Great location! One block from Macy's, a short walk to Times Square, and conveniently located near NY Penn Station. There is one king bed in each room but plenty of space for a NYC hotel, and breakfast was included. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely pleasant and if you need anything just ask for Ivo, he is a gem!

We had a horrible experience checking in, which made the whole experience that much worse. It took us an hour and a half to check in because somehow the front desk lost our pre-payment information. They were trying to get me to pay for a room I already paid for. Also, they had me down as staying for 1 night, when I booked for 2 nights. This caused quite a hassle and since the front desk people were completely incompetent and seemed to be under the influence they kept forgetting that we were waiting for them to solve our problems. It was unheard of that they could keep forgetting about us because we were sitting 10 feet in front of them and no one else was in the lobby. At some point we went up to them to see if they had resolved the issues and they said they thought they already checked us in, which was ridiculous because they didn't and it took them atleast 40 more minutes to check us in.

The room was really nice. It had 3 TVs - bedroom, living room bathroom. It came with plates, utensils, etc. It was like a small, furnished apartment.
