The Manhattan at Times Square is undergoing renovation at the moment and you need to be patient when using the usual hotel facilities such as checking in, using the lifts, asking the concierge for advice and waiting to collect luggage if you leave it in storage. I queued for around 20 minutes to check in - the reception area is being refurbished and there isn't a great deal of room to cope with a lot of people. One of the four lifts is out of use and on Friday afternoon, a member of the hotel staff was dealing with a large queue of guests waiting to use the lifts - several of us were waiting to retrieve luggage (which took 25 minutes) and I got the impression that the staff are getting fed up with the upheaval. The rooms are in desperate need of renovation but it's not due to be finished any time soon. The best thing about the hotel is the location. It is so easy to get around New York on foot and you have all the major attractions on your doorstep. As you tend not to spend a lot of time in any New York hotel, I would recommend the hotel as a convenient base at a great price - don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
