We stayed at the Ameritania in late September for 4 nights on a recommendation from our travel agent.
First impression of this hotel was very good. Very nicely presented modern reception with helpful reception staff. Our street view bedroom was similary well presented and spotlessly clean although typically for NYC, on the small side. It had a good sized bathroom with a modern walk in shower but no bath.
It has an excellent location on the corner of Broadway and just a few minutes walk to both Central Park and Times Square. There are several subway stations nearby making travel around the city very manageable.
Depending on what's important to you, there were a couple of small negatives. There was a breakfast area but it was not well promoted and was not overly appealing. We preferred to find local diner options of which there are many. There is a lobby bar, but we never saw it open during our stay although our preference would always be to go out. It is Manhattan after all and there are hundreds of options on your door step.
I was surprised that there was no free wi-fi in the hotel. I would have thought that in a modern hotel in NYC in 2013, which presumably caters for business travellers, this would have been a given. It was'nt a deal breaker for us, but was disappointing.
All in all, we would return to the Ameritania but I think we'll still be shopping around for alternatives, the next time we visit NYC.
