“Good Hotel for Visiting NYC”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

My friend and I stayed at the Skyline Hotel for four nights in May of 2014 while we were visiting NYC. It was a nice hotel... very clean and up-to-date. The rooms are spacious (take a look at the pictures I posted) and it was great to have a mini fridge, which I was told is in every room at Skyline Hotel. This hotel has an inside pool, as well! Skyline Hotel is within walking distance of many attractions. Only a 5-10 minute walk to Times Square! Next time, I would like to stay in a hotel right in Times Square, but I would most definitely recommend the Skyline Hotel to anyone who will be visiting NYC and staying over night.

We stayed over thanksgiving for a week for our honeymoon, had our little toddler with us. Could not fault the staff, conceirge and desk staff were al so helpful and friendly, never, even when our little one was causing havoc, did they say anything, which is great for parents. The maid service was great, our little one had her disney bears scattered around the room and every morning they arranged them on her pillows for her which was lovely. Rooms were clean and spacious. Location was fantastic ten minutes to the heart of new york! Food in restaurant was lovely and reasonably priced. We honestly thought for the good price we got the hotel was great, the roadworks didnt bother us, our little one slept well every night so very comfortable. We are planning our next trip for 2015 and we will be stayin again, cannot rate the staff any higher, just amazing!

Just got married, have a toddler and you still remembered to write such a nice rewiew of our hotel, thank you. It is nice to know that we had the honor of your honeymoon and spending thanksgiving with us last year. I love sharing the nice comments with those who tried to make your stay with us special.

I could not ask better comments from a guest that reconfirms our efforts to make our guest feel special.

All of the good luck in the future,

We picked this hotel because it was walking distance from the Intrepid, the subway, and a restaurant we were going to. It's hard to find a room that can sleep 2 adults and 2 kids, and they have some.

Location is good. Not too busy of an area. Some homeless folks nearby. A long 2 block walk to the subway, but fine. Short walk to Intrepid.

Staff was very friendly and the room was clean and nice (and huge by NYC standards). As mentioned, no coffee maker and paid Wi-Fi. The building itself is a bit odd (you walk up and down small flights of stairs to get from the front to the back elevator if your room happens to be there. They have a concierge who appeared to be very helpful to guests.

Only disappointment to us was the pool, which had limited hours. Seems like it is used for a daycare or something during the day on weekdays and is not available to guests until after 5PM. On weekends, it doesn't open until Noon. In any case, if it's important to you, check the hours. We ended up not being able to use it at all.

Breakfast buffet at hotel was not very good, but an omelet from the menu was great.

Room Tip: Room with 2 queen beds is spacious.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback we really do appreicate it.
Hope to see you again.

Location was within decent walking distance of many attractions. We only used taxis the day we went to the ferries. The room was clean and staff was friendly and efficient. Only complaints are that wifi was not free and there was no coffee maker in the room. I found the absence of both to be odd, but maybe that is normal for NYC hotels

Just spent a week in the hotel, we found the reception staff very helpful. We had emailed them before arriving for a kettle to be in our room and had 2 waiting when we arrived!. Larry the concierge was very helpful and gave us numerous routes and tips of how to get round the city and what to visit. The room was large and kept spotless every day by our maid with a change of towels daily. The hotel swimming pool and was a nice touch after a long day walking and the gym was well equipped and normally empty. We agree with other comments about the local road works going on being noisey, but out of the hotels hands - maybe they should warn guests of any works. Great location for walk into Times Square.

We booked 2 rooms and stayed 3 nights before commencing our Cosmos tour. We checked in at midnight and after a 24 hour plane flight were very disappointed to discover no coffee or tea facility in the rooms. We asked for a kettle as we brought our own coffee and tea bags however the hotel was fully booked and no kettle was available. The reception staff member was kind enough to boil water in his kettle and had it taken up to our rooms to fill our cups. The rooms were small but the beds were clean and comfortable. We purchased breakfast one morning but found it limited in choices for the price we paid. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

I am sorry we do not have coffee/tea makers in the rooms. Unfortunately, this is an issue that we can not place in the rooms due to staffing issues. I was happy that the desk responded as they did.

Our visit was a mixed bag of good, not so good and just bad. Our choice was made based on being close to the Jacob Javitz Center for a graduation.. The location made it easy to get to the event. we could have walked if we had wanted to. There were stores and restaurants within walking distance. The room was old but clean. Beds were comfortable. We ordered a king but got two doubles, admittedly their fault, but they were all booked up and couldn't move us. There was a serious lack of receptacles (building needs updating). The receptacles on the lamps had been used so much that they would not hold a plug.

The bathroom had been kind of updated but the shower was 3 feet by 3 feet (no kidding). My husband had bruised elbows by the end of the stay LOL! The toilet was on a continuous cycle of filling up. Reports to the maid and housekeeping were not responded to.

During our stay there was utility construction across the street which was loud and caused traffic back-ups. Can you say "honking horns"? New Yorkers have a tendency to use their horns to communicate but this was a symphony.

Front desk staff did their jobs and no more. Bellman and concierge were both helpful and courteous.

Room Tip: Ask about the size of the shower in your room.

Dear Valued Guest,

I would like to apologize that your stay was not up to your or our expectations. I am not sure what happened with your reservation and room type since I do not know what name the reservation was under. I will be sharing your review with our staff to discuss some of the comments that you have shared. This is not a norm for us since we do strive on excellent service and apologize that that was not the case with our stay. I do hope that if you ever come backto our wonderful city that you will give us the opportunity to show you the excellent service that I know we provide.
Thank you for your feedback it is very much appreciated.
