“Location, Location, Location!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

I went to NYC for business and due to a few recommendations I decided to book in at the Ameritania hotel.

I did not spend too much time in the actual hotel, but what I can say is the rooms are modern, clean, and offers everything you need.

The reason I did not spend too much time in the hotel is because of the location of this hotel. It is situated IN Broadway, and about 200m walk to Times square if you walk south, and about 200m from Central Park if you walk north.

A Few tips for 1st time travellers :
1. Try to get a room on a upper floor with a view.
2. Walk to Times Square and take a double decker bus tour through the city. Its about $50 for a two day tour pass, and I would highly recommend this.
3. Check out the restaurant called "the 3 monkeys" on your left as you exit the hotel. Offers great food & drink at fantastic prices.
4. Dont buy electronics in times square, its over priced and they tend to scam people.
5. For all shopping go to Jersey Gardens (you can also take a bus there) you will be stuck in there for days!

All in all a Fantastic hotel. This is EXACTLY where you want to stay in NYC. I cant see how you can get a better value for money, and I will be staying here again when I return to the city.

Room Tip: TOP Floor is a must!

My girlfriend and I were in the City for a Rock n Roll Weekend (Brunch w Beatlemania, Original Good Rats Reunion, both at BB Kings, and "Rock of Ages" musical at Helen Hayes Theater). From the time we arrived, we were treated like Royalty. Plus, we were left alone when we preferred (The Do Not Disturb sign worked)...The room, though small, was immaculate. The bathroom spotless, the straight down shower a very refreshing way to wake up. The doormen were polite, respectful, more than willing to help flag down cabs, etc. The location can't be beat! We were only 12 blocks from Times Square, and 10 from the Helen Hunt. If you want to walk to Times Square without all the "street drama" of 7th Ave or Broadway, 8th Avenue is a piece of cake. With regards to useless trivia, the hotel is 3 doors down from the infamous (and defunct) Studio 54 disco...No lines of any type there, if you know what I mean. We would DEFINITELY stay at the Ameritania again. Kudos to staff and management...

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street, as there is major night construction going on across 54th Stree...

Location is perfect. Subways, taxis 24/7. Doormen are helpful. Reception desk responsive. Clean, busy intersection is safe , there is an iron / board in the room. I have stayed there 6 times in the past year!

Room Tip: It is all about your neighbors!

Enjoyable "mom and me" trip with my 11yo. Hotel was comfortable and walking distance to times square, the park, and shopping. Hotel staff helpful with local suggestions--food and shopping. My son particularly enjoyed the flat panel TV. Rainshower was relaxing after lots of walking.

I really liked the hotel, and especially the great attention from all the staff (Julian, Mario, Mourad) and also the girls from the front desk. The location is simply unbeatable, and the room could have been a bit bigger, but the way it's designed compensates the size. Will definetely stay here again.

Wow! Why did I not know about this place sooner? The location (Broadway and 54th) can't be beat. The prices shocked me - I was prepared for a sub-optimal experience and was blown away. It has the boutiquey feel of a European hotel. Quaint, cool, hip and outstanding service. Everyone working here went out of their way to make my stay exceptional. I was here for business and would have stayed at the HIlton, had their rate been a little less. I met colleagues there and it was a zoo of tourists. Not here. Now, I don't plan to stay anywhere else. Did I mention they offer a continental breakfast downstairs for $10? Meals were SO reasonable. And did I mention 2 for 1 wine?? 1 average glass of chardonnay at Hilton = $16. Here, 2 glasses of nice chardonnay = $9. I don't know how they do it but I'm glad they do. I WILL be back! Cheers.

Room Tip: Get a double if you can. You're usually guaranteed more space in boutique hotels.

This hotel is great!!! The location is perfect for doing and going any where you want. They are within walking distance to all the major subway lines, broadway shows, Times Square, great eats, and Duane Reade. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very helpful. We had five people in our group and we constantly needed more towels, and the hotel staff was always very accommodating! The room was a typical manhattan size hotel room quite small for five people, but that was something we new going into this vacation! I recommend going to stardust diner just one block from the hotel for great food and live entertainment. Also Europa cafe just across the street is great for breakfast.
