“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

I stayed at this hotel on my first ever visit to NYC. It is located on 57th street, between 5th and 7th avenue. This was a great location, as it was within short walking distance to Central Park, Times Square, The Top of Rock and Broadway theaters. The hotel room appeared dated, but that is the way NYC is. No free wifi is available, its about $5 per day and the house computer is pay internet as well. If you need to access the internet, I'd suggest going to the Starbuck which is across the street. There is a continental breakfast buffet that is available everyday from 7:00-11:00am on the third floor in the dining room. Staff will deliver a notice of the breakfast to your room. There is a deli a couple doors down that offers great food options, as well as a market across the street beside Starbucks which offers a large selection of buffet style hot food. I would stay here again.

If you don't need tons of amenities (who hangs out in their hotel in NYC anyway?) and want to be close to so much, you should stay here. It's only a couple blocks to Central Park, Columbus Circle... a few more blocks to Times Square, Fifth Avenue, etc. Three us of shared a huge room and the price was quite reasonable. It's a "mature" hotel, but it's clean and quiet. This was my second trip to NYC and there's a very good chance I'll stay at the Salisbury next time!

Room Tip: If you book a room for 3 or 4 people, you'll likely get a huge suite (so unlike NYC!): a bedroom...

We had stayed at this hotel four years previously with a grandchild and we returned with another one! Imagine our amazement when the desk clerk remembered us! A wonderful welcome at the door and at the desk. The room was lovely and pristine with every possible amenity we would want including tour books. The hotel is located in the middle of West 57th Street between 6th Avenue and 7th, across from Carnegie Hall. The location could not be better (walkable to the theatre district and to 5th Avenue). Every member of the personnel we met there for any reason whatsoever was anxious to be sure our stay was pleasant and memorable. We will definitely be back

My family and I stayed at the Salisbury hotel in July & the experience was so great! .

Location: Absolutely PERFECT. It's located walking distance away from Central Park, Rockefeller Plaza, 5th Avenue, and all of the Upper East Side! Right next to the hotel was a convenient food market, a Starbucks (which I loved), and a pizza shop that was excellent. When you walk out of the hotel it already feels like you're experiencing the city, which was awesome!

Room: I loved the room that we stayed in. I know a lot of the other reviewers mentioned how outdated and oldish the rooms were, but honestly it wasn't that bad. It wasn't modern, luxurious, and new, no, but it was comfortable, clean, and made us feel at home. Even if you really did hate the decor, it can be easily overlooked when you see how big the rooms are. I was amazed. Our room had a mini kitchen with a dining table, a very spacious, large living room with a couch and multiple chairs, a bedroom with 2 queen sized beds and a dresser, and a small hallway with closets leading to the bathroom. There had to of been at least 3 full sized closets, and there were plenty of mirrors (a feature I loved). Now my favorite part about the room? The VIEW. It was awesome. Looking out the window I could see everyone walking and driving by. Even though we were inside the room, it felt like we were in the middle of things and missing out on nothing. The noise wasn't horrific either, which I know was one concern a lot of people brought up. If you have the air conditioner on at night (which we did), the hum drowns out a lot of the street noise. Overall the room was great.

Hotel Service/Amenities: The workers were so nice and helpful. They were happy to help us out during check-in and check-out. Parking was offered at a discount at an off-site lot. This wasn't awful, but it was hard during the check-in process because we had to park in front on the busy street to get all our luggage into the hotel. Wi-Fi wasn't complimentary, which wasn't the biggest deal because we were barely in the hotel room, but it would have been nice to have. There wasn't any pool, not like we would've had time to use one anyways. No laundry services in the building, but luckily it was our first stop on the trip so we didn't need anything washed. Breakfast was offered but wasn't complimentary. It wasn't the most decked out hotel, but it did it's basic job of giving us a comfortable place to stay in a good location.

Cons: No parking on site, as mentioned before. No complimentary breakfast or wi-fi.The shower in our room went through drastic temperature changes, from freezing cold to burning hot, making it hard to take one. Beds were a little stiff, not totally uncomfortable but not the best I've slept on either. But all of these cons really didn't take away from the overall experience.

We had a great stay, so thank you Salisbury Hotel! :)

Room Tip: Middle height floors were just right. Double queen bed rooms were spacious. Get a room facing the st...

location - 57th street between 6th and 7th ave. great location to tour the city - a 5 minute walk from central park and its surroundings. a short walk from the MoMa, a short 10 minute walk to Times Square and many other broadway theatres.
a short walk from a few metro stations that connect the hotel to all other parts of the city.
about 50 minute by metro and AirTrain from JFK.

rooms - we got an apartment almost, not a room. the rooms are huge, specially for manhattan and for this price...our room had a small kitchen with micro, fridge and sink. 2 flat screen tvs. bed quite comfortable. the decor is very minimal and outdated, but didn't really care as the room was mostly clean and tidy. there are a few scratches and marks on the furniture, but again...i was not bothered by them.
the view is of the building opposite, so not much view...

internet in the room and public spaces costs money and too much money...

breakfast - for 10$ a huge breakfast - not merely continental. contained a few kinds of fresh fruit, cereals, eggs, many varieties of pastries and breads all seemed fresh, pancakes... one of the best "continental" breakfasts - the selection is big and the produce fresh.

staff - mostly friendly. tried to help with every question we had.

other amenities - no pool, fitness center or anything like that (i think...)

overall - although the rooms and public spaces are outdated, when we stayed it was one of the cheapest in manhattan and for its price you get a great location and a huge rooms.

Room Tip: expedia vip members are eligble for free breakfast and room upgrade which we got. great breakfast...

The Salisbury Hotel is in a great location and close to a number of subway stations so you can get easily around Manhattan. The rooms Re a large size and ver clean. Most rooms have kitchens or pantries as the hotel calls them. None of the king size bed rooms have a pantry so if you want a pantry ( fridge, microwave, coffee machine etc) opt for a room with two double beds. There is plenty of luggage space and closets and the bathroom is well stocked with toiletries and towels. The rooms at the front of the hotel are noisy as they are on West 57th Street. We were a family group of 8 and had three rooms. My parents room overlooked 57th Street and was noisy so a word with the staff at reception and they were moved to a room at the back in minutes - staff were very helpful. The beds were comfortable and sheets clean. We didn't eat there but the Morton Williams supermarket across the road is open 24hours and has great quality food, a place to eat your purchases and free wi fi.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back if you are light sleepers.

Just returned from our recent New York excursion , staying once again at the Salisbury. Yes it is tired and needs a lick of paint, but for location and size of rooms, it will be hard to beat.
Located on 57th, two below central park it is ideal for visiting the big Apple. Metros either side of the hotel, you can get just about anywhere from here. A stones throw to central park, few minutes to Times square, across the road from Carneige hall and the Russian tea rooms. Around the corner from FAO SCHWARTZ, Bloomingdales, fifth avenue. You could not be better located.
The rooms are huge. Ex apartment block and you can tell. Our wardrobe was bigger than a lot of New Yorks hotel rooms.
A new supermarket opened up across the street and they sell everything. So, if on a limited budget this is the place to get , breakfast , lunch or evening meal. The steaks are marvelous. We have been to restaurants and paid a lot of money for not a lot of steaks, these are good.
Al, Nick and Paul on the door are most helpful and knowledgeable and more than willing to offer any assistance they can. Local knowledge is always a bonus.
The lift can take an eternity, but hey , everybody else in New York is in a hurry, this gives you time to chill.
Next holiday here already booked.

Room Tip: Rooms at rear are quieter
