I just spent a week at The Manhattan at Times Square in New York. The location is great just a couple of blocks from the Rockefeller Center and Times Square. Subway just around the corner and tons of places to dine. But that is the only advantage of this hotel.
The staff is unavailable and indifferent to the guests. The lobby is so busy it feels like being at Grand Central.
They booked the wrong room and were rude when it was pointed out.
The concierge is as helpful as they want to be and once when I asked them about restaurants around the area they actually told me to look them up at the free internet at the lobby.
Do not book any transportation recommended at the hotel, they are unreliable and will charge you ridiculous fares if you don't agree upon them in advance.
If you are willing to pay for the location that's the place to go. Otherwise get a more reasonable place a little farther or a better hotel altogether just across the street (the Sheraton).
