Good place to stay for a New York Sightseeing trip. Rooms are smal but very clean. Rooms to 5th avenue are noisy but this belongs to a New York trip. Hotel is very close to subway and bus stations. Just a few steps away from Empire State Building and all major actractions.

Great location right opposite the empire state building!! Rooms were small but if your in new York you shouldn't be in your bedroom all the time! Reception team were good they gave us directions of how to get to new jersey to watch the jets play NFL. When we go back we will book here 100%!!

I see from your review that you slept really well. That's great to see. It's true: No one spends much time in our guest rooms, with all of the access we provide to every corner of the island; but we're glad that you slept soundly. We'll look forward to your return.

We were spending 1 night in NYC over Thanksgiving weekend - this was perfect for our needs. Great location on 5th Ave and 35th...easy walk to Herald Sq, Times Sq, Grand Central, etc.

Lobby is tiny - really just a small front desk. Check-in was fast and easy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were small, but for our one night stay that didn't matter...and by NYC standards the size was probably only slightly below average. There was a small desk and flat screen TV - not a room I would want to hang out in for extended periods of time, but fine for us. Bed was extremely comfortable. Starbucks on the first floor was convenient. Only downside was the huge and loud air conditioner.

Overall, for the price we paid it was a great value in a great location. If you are traveling with lots of luggage or for an extended period of time I would probably look elsewhere, but for us this was perfect.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view of the Empire State Building

We're really glad that you found our rooms to be extremely clean and comfortable. Thanks for mentioning that you can request an Empire State building view. It's exciting to be a block away from the ESB and Macy's Herald Square. Happy Holidays!

I met a friend for a girls' weekend and picked this hotel based on location and price though I was a little wary, given some of the bad reviews. Yes, the rooms are small, but not nearly as small as I'd expected after reading what I did here. It's clearly been recently renovated and has beautiful finishes. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. We got vouchers for breakfast at the cafe next door and a coupon for 20% off at a nearby Irish pub, both of which we used. Best of all is the location. It's very close to Penn Station, where we came in, and between several subway lines. I will absolutely stay here again.

Yes the rooms are small but not redicously so - I've seen much smaller. The bed was on the short side but no difficulty finding a good sleeping position.
Room extremely well kept and everything felt very clean.
Very friendly staff, and a bargain for the location.
I really recommend the Hotel 373 and would certainly consider staying here again.
