“Fantastic little hotel !!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

After reading some of the reviews on here, I went with no expectations, but wow a little gem of a hotel!! Some of the things people moan about are ridiculous, small lobby only 1 lift corridors were narrow!! Really!!! When in New York you only use to room to sleep and stay clean!! Room was immaculate, bathroom spotless!! Yes there is only 1 lift but just have patience you don't have to wait that long!! Fantastic location ideal for everywhere!! You may get lucky and get a room with a view, ours was room 1014, great view of the Empire State!! But who goes to New York to look out of their window!! All in all Like I said little gem of a hotel !!! Will definitely stay again !!!!

This hotel has no accessibility for handicapped and they say they do. There are not a wheelchair ramp to get into the hotel, and there are stairs. there is an elevator instead of a ramp. This would be a solution if the elevator had worked normally. But it did not work for four of the six days I stayed in the hotel. I could not walk because I had a broken foot, so I rent a scooter and it was really complicated to get in and out since the elevator was broken and there was'nt any ramp. The hotel bellman and the recepcionist had to carry the scooter to go up or down stairs everytime I needed to get in or out. Finally, the main reason of my complain: I had to go up and down stairs with my broken foot, and my medical instruction was to avoid to touch my broken foot on the floor, so stairs never!
When I spoke to the manager, he just told me that the elevator usually stops when the weather gets cold. I could not believe his answer since the hotel was in New York and everyone knows how the winter is there. It was really surprising to hear that the elevator's problem were known and they did not care about acessibility for wheelchairs, they did nothing about it.

Hotel Stanford is located on W 32rd St. only a few blocks from Empire State Building, Macy's,, Penn Station Broadway and much more.
It is somewhat used but provides good value for money. (Slow and somewhat unreliable) wifi is free, as is the simple but decent breakfast. We stayed in room 703 facing the court (i.e. a brick wall), and had issues with heating the room sufficiently, despite asking for it to be fixed. Noisy air condition.
Staff was friendly.

Room Tip: 703 is reasonably large, but facing the court rather than the street.

Just got back from a four day break with my wife, hotel was clean and rooms were good enough for what we needed. View from window was not worth looking at.
Breakfast time was a nightmare on the one lift they had but any other time it was ok. Would recommend

Just returned from a 7 night stay at the Hotel Stanford have stayed there many times its location is great within walking distance of all the attractions and shops clean rooms and helpful staff breakfast is fine enough to start your day don't expect views from your room who would want to sit in a room with so many wonderful things to do the lift is a bit slow but a minor complaint hope to return again soon

Stayed 3 nights for a short shopping break.
Rooms are small, but clean and all you need if your out and about all day.
Great location opposite Macy's and under the Empire State Building.
Only negatives if being picky, was that the Wifi is NOT the best. Slow and constantly having to log back in, plus our room was like an oven and the aircon would constantly blow out hot air

All in all, an average hotel at reasonable prices

Great location for getting around Manhattan being one block down from the Empire State, two blocks from MSG and dangerously only one block from Macy's !
The rooms are nice and clean and the staff could not have been more helpful and polite. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a stay in New York.
