I was in New York for only two nights and found this hotel perfect for such a short trip as we had everything on our doorstep including dining options and easy access to shops. We were a party of six women ranging in age from 27-55.
The Manhattan Hotel is in an excellent location as it is situated just a few blocks North of Times Square which is only a two minute walk away. always easy therefore to find on maps etc and get your bearings. As it is on Broadway, there is always hustle and bustle outside the hotel (but not huge crowds or anything) and taxis are easy to come by. It is a block away from Radio City and New York staples such as the Magnolia Bakery. Ellen's Diner is literally around the corner-this is a diner where the staff sing their ways through their shifts and is a nice way to start the morning.There is also a handy dinner option as Rosie O'Gradys, a restaurant is also beside the hotel. This is a typical"Irish" restaurant serving a typical American menu. but doe to its location, prices are not cheap and are the same as Irish restaurants (e.g. $30 for beef medallions, the cheapest steak dish). The food was lovely, couldn't fault it. Macy's is only a ten minute walk, or less, as is central park. Broadway is close to fifth avenue and shops such as Hollitsor and Tiffanys are also ten minutes or less. Port Authority bus terminal, where you can get buses out to Jersey Gardens Outlet mall, is only five minutes away. Arrive early for buses as there are often long ques and you have to buy your tickets etc. Tickets are $13 return. The Manhattan Hotel location suited us perfectly for such a short trip.
We had two double rooms on the ninth floor. The manager told us the nicer rooms are on the higher floors but we requested a room on a low floor as one of our party doesn't like heights. Rooms were a very good size, quite big by New York standards with loads of rooms for three-five large suitcases on the floor. There is a good size wardrobe in the rooms also with a few hangers provided. Bathrooms are basic in style with a nice strong and easy to work shower, Basic toiletries are provided( shampoo, conditioner, body lotion) as are face cloths. Beds are comfortable and we didn't experience any noise form the street below. There is a small amount of noise from running water in nearby rooms and you may hear people talking also (this didn't bother us as it was our friends). We never turned on the television but it was very large and widescreen. Rooms very clean and had a slightly dated style. I thought they were perfect
Staff in the hotel were helpful and courteous at all times.
There was no late check out facility as our rooms were booked up. Check out is at eleven. We left our luggage in the concierge until the evening. We didn't eat in the hotel or avail of the fitness facilities so I can't comment on these.
Overall we had a lovely time at this hotel and I would stay here again due to its location and the room comfort.
