“A brilliant hotel in a brilliant city!!!!!!”
Reviewed March 7, 2007

We visited the Night Hotel in January and had the pleasure of staying there for 4 nights! At the end of the 4 nights we didnt want to go home!

On arrival at the hotel you notice that at the end of the street is Times Square so you really couldnt ask for a better location. Although the hotel is very central we noticed very little noise from the street and the windows have black out blinds to ensure a good nights sleep - if you have time to sleep in New York! Also the hotel rooms have extremely comfy beds, a huge wall mounted TV, black and white bath robes and just to make it a bit better than it already is - Molton Brown products in the bathroom!!

The staff in the hotel are very friendly, from the moment you arrive (when you are greeted with a glass of wine) they do everything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible but at the same time they let you get on with it.
Night is definitely worth a visit and we would definitely return!!

We stayed at the Night Hotel in mid feb and unfortuately did not enjoy the experience at all. The rooms are very small with no windows (at least the one we were in didnt). Our shower drain was blocked so you stood in water the whole time you showered, it eventually drained away but not whilst you were in it. The room we had was very noisy, you could hear everyone outside coming and going and last but not least housekeeping didnt make up our room on one occasion and on the others did a poor job (apparently in the US you are meant to tip housekeeping so they do a good job, we were unaware of this which may be the cause for the housekeeping issues). Overall probably one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed in.

Having stayed at the Hilton Garden the previous February and having loved the convenience of a Time Square adjacent location we were keen to repeat the experience again.

However the prices this year were a fair amount higher, and attempting to spend the same amount again we looked for other alternatives. This led us to booking at the Night Hotel.

The deal we got on Expedia for the flight and hotel actually worked out as £250 cheaper for each of us. On arrival we were swiftly booked in, they did offer us an upgrade from a queen to a king for $50 a night but not intending to spend a huge amount of time in the room we declined.

John, the doorman, accompanied us upstairs with our luggage, very friendly and helpful.

First impressions were that the room was compact, rather than small, well appointed. Chief feature being the bed which looked sumptuous and luxurious, having read the comments about the bed being small, I’m 5 11”, I found it to be fine. Very comfy indeed.

Bose radio/cd player was great to have, especially with its Ipod connectivity, great to play purchases while on holiday rather than waiting to we got home.
Great TV as well.

Plenty of closet space for things which needed to be hung up, most things we left in our cases which we stored by the window.
Complementary dressing gowns were great; umbrella in the closet was a nice touch as well.

Bathroom was fine, once we got the hang of the shower nozzle to minimize the splashing onto the floor, with there being no shower curtain/door.

Molton Brown products were a great, always promptly replaced, plenty of towels, hot water. Turn down service for the bed each night, yummy chocolates on the pillows,

Lift was fine, it's a small hotel with a standard lift you don't expect it to be bullet fast. Staff was friendly and helpful for the most part. Always greeted when entering/leaving the hotel. Only thing we found was the receptionist when we asked to book a shuttle to Newark on our day of departure was a bit reticent and vague about it for some reason. But that’s the only gripe.

Bar /Restaurant seemed a bit quiet and dark most times of course except when they'd got a function on. Being on the 7th floor we had no problem with noise from either internally or externally. In fact you were completely oblivious to where we were till we exited the hotel to find ourselves a mere minute or more walk from Times Square.
Outside of the hotel is unobtrusive while being bold, infact looks a little like a gentlemen’s club which added to the thrill of staying there.

We loved our 6 nights at the night, and it's intimate and friendly atmosphere made it seem like home within a day or so.
Only hope it's not too long till I stay there again.

The only complaint is the one, slow, small elevator that can take some time to get to you, especially if you are on the 8th floor (one floor below penthouse). Other than that, all the positive reviews here are accurate.

After a really hard decision to chose the Hudson or Night, I opted for Night for a surprise 30th Birthday trip. We dropped someone else off at the Hudson on the way and I was really wowed by their exterior. Night hotel is nowhere as imposing as expected from the hotel images and looked a little disappointing from the outside - not the huge, grand facade that I was expecting. I was a little bit gutted that I opted for Night. The lobby is nowhere as large and grand as it appears froom the photos either, but warm and friendly nethertheless.

When we got inside, like other reviews, it was a Saturday night and there was a party going on, but the front desk were really attentive and told us all about the offers that they have and about the hotel.

After going out to grab some food, we headed back to the hotel for some sleep, but by this time, the music was banging as we were directly above the bar. We couldn't sleep so went downstairs to see if we could be moved. The front desk moved us immediately to the 8th floor where we couldn't hear a thing (apart from a distant generator outside - hardly any noise - but you expect nothing less in NY. If this is a problem, ask for a room in the centre of the hotel, not at the front or back) We had a really good nights sleep and the bed was certainly long enough as I was a bit worried about the length of the bed from other reviews. The bedding and towels were spotlessly clean and luxurious in feel. The blackout, heavy quality curtains gave us a really good nights sleep too.

The rooms had been decorated fairly recently, but I'm worried that they could start to look tired soon. I was also worried that the decor may be too saucy, but this is certainly not the case, after a couple of nights, the room felt like a very safe, cosy haven a million miles away from the hectic streets of NYC.

The photos shown look like the hotel is huge and grand. It doesn't have the wow factor that you think, but it does grow on you and we felt very protective of Night. My photos look the same as the others listed, they give a very good impression of the hotel.

One of our favourite things about the hotel is that you weren't constantly running into other guests even if the hotel was full. It felt very private and secure. If you like people watching, this isn't the place for you.

The front desk staff were fantastic at suggesting bars to go to and reserving restaurants for us. They also helped with daft queries such as 'what time does the Empire State open until' and didn't seem too bothered!

After a couple of days in freezing New York, we decided to do an afternoon bar crawl and headed off to the Hudson to see what we could have had if we had stayed there. The first thing about the hotel is that it is miles out and took quite a cab ride to get there. The frontage is incredibly cool and certainly has the wow factor. The escalator again looks fab. The reception desk is vast with many 'cool' and aloof people behind it. We went to the bar and ordered 2 of glasses of wine (which cost $26.00!!!!!!) the glamourous waitress asked us if we required any change from the $30.00 that we gave her. It seemed that she expected tips and that she didn't have to earn them. The bar is not nearly as boutique in feel as it looks in the photographs. The clientelle were mainly there on business and gave the whole hotel a cold, impersonal feel. I also looked at one of the rooms, (again, to see what we could have had!) and it was a wooden shoe box. The wooden panelling gave the room a clinical, hard feel, not at all luxury as led to believe from all of the images. Comparing the two hotels, I DEFINATELY made the right choice. If you are deciding between the two hotels, Night is by far the superior. (I think that the Hudson has 800 rooms and Night 72 the service reflects this)

You should not be put off Night by it's website, or for thinking that it is going to be seedy or erotic - it isn't. It's a safe, small, helpful & unpretentious boutique hotel. Definately a hidden gem. If you don't stay in the Night Hotel, but are sightseeing and get to Times Square, pop down the road alongside Swatch watches, 60 seconds later, you're at Night Hotel. Go in for a drink and get away from all of the hustle and bustle for a few moments - you'll definately appreciate it!

Foodwise, we didn't eat in the hotel, but in the Cranberry Deli over the road - Absolutley stunning brekfasts, A real must (even if you are in the Times Square region)

I would definately recommend this hotel. As long as it keeps it's warm, friendly appraoch and doesn't become too pretentious like the Hudson, you're onto a winner here!
