“Near all and brand new”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

This Hotel are brand new. (have been renovated in 2013) this hotel have a location 2 blocks from time square and you therefore are near to all thing you want. Also near to the subway (but that you off cause are over whole manhattan)

Iff you get a room next to elevator ask to change because you will hear this runnin whole nigth

But overall a very good hotel with a good location where you get value for money.

This is a very nice hotel! The decor is really retro and smart. The lobby, bar and restaurant overlook Times Square which was awesome having some dinner there the first night. We were up on the 22nd floor and from our room you could actually see Times Square and watch the world go by it was amazing, we booked really late (that day) so didn't expect such a good room. Compared to other NY rooms i thought it was quite big!! It had plenty of space for clothes, good amount of floor area, flat screen, and the most comfortable bed I have been in for a while, we slept so well. You could hear Times Square in the evening but it didn't keep us up. The bathroom was finished very well, great shower! Obviously the excellent location goes without saying. One negative, they don't provide free wifi. This drives me crazy that you have to pay for wifi nowadays. The breakfast was expensive for what it was and generally the room was quite expensive but I probably would pay it again as it was better than some hotels iv stayed in, in NY! I would recommend it

Room Tip: We had 2208, but there are other rooms that look out over Times Sq and they might have a better angl...

This would be the best located hotel in New York, IMO that's is, Its jrust far enough out from Times Square (two blocks) but not far enough you can't see it from the Terrace Lounge.

Rooms are clean, well laid out, everything worked. We even had a great view.
Elevators really need to be sorted out you could wait for 9 mins for one sooooo slow but I guess they were so busy.
Check in and check out was fast so no complaints there
Car parking was a 100yards just down the street, so no problems there either.
Charges for parking in New York is $54 per night but staying at the Novotel hotel its dropped to $30 per night, very reasonable.

Internet was my only complaint they wanted $10 per night, now that's a rip off, you can get free internet and McDonalds just around the corner for a price of a coffee, so how can they justify $10 per night beats me.It's total BS.

Room Tip: Rip off internet service at $10 per night

Great place to stay in NYC due to location, spacious rooms, newly renovated. Service is good, check out was a bit slow though. Elevators seem to be under construction as very slow. Awesome view towards Times Square from the bar. Breakfast is excluded.

the Novotel Times Square recently underwent renovations and the result is an amazing haven in the heart of the Times Square area of Manhattan. The rooms are not large but the amenities (beds, TVs, internet, bathroom) are excellent, stylish, and modern. Sit outside on the lobby level double tier patio with fire pits and you might find yourself not wanting to go out on the town. The staff are friendly and helpful. would definitely recommend this hotel to colleagues, family, and friends. You really can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor on the south side so you can have a clear view of Times Square
