“Great!!! Friendly staff and great service.”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

We were here for a first time New York visit. The hotel is central located between Times Square and central park. Ideal located for sigh seeing. It’s clean, modern and we had a very nice room (enough space). Although the hotel is really nice the staff makes the difference. Friendly and helpfull!. Every day we got our "tip of the day" from one of the doormen. They were our trip advisors! Where to have good breakfast or free entrance, where to go or where not..or just a friendly evaluation of the day before.

Our transportation from the airport towards the hotel was arranged by our travel agency and a real night mare (transportation done by Go Airlink NYC: WARNING DO NOT USE THESE SERVICE!!!!!!!!)

Although Ameritania did not have anything to do with this they felt the need to compensate this and organized a transportation back toward the airport which we will not forget easy: in a stretched limo “to put the cherry on the cake of our week in New York”.

Jeff and colleagues: thank you for the unforgettable stay and service!

We stayed for 4 nights and got everything we needed to
Out of our stay. Room was a but small but for the amount of time we actually spent in it we really didn't need more space. Staff was exceptionally fantastic. All very warm an friendly and willing to go out of their way to accommodate us. Jeff, our doorman, was so professional and extremely good at his job. Overall, great stay. Would stay here again!

We stayed at the Ameritania from a Monday to a Thursday in June of 2014. The rooms are really small, which is standard for NYC. However, the bathrooms were quite nice: tons of hot water and fabulous C.O. Bigelow body care products. The staff was helpful, especially Jeff, who called us a cab upon our departure and was always ready with a smile at the front door. In another, smaller city I'd expect to pay $150 to $200 for a hotel like the Ameritania, but with the excessive costs of NYC, I'd say it was a fair value. If you're wanting to stay near Times Square but don't want to pay $400-$600 per night, check out the Ameritania.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the view of the alley, ask for a room with a street view.

the hotel is located perfectly for business and for tourism / culture hungry people in the very centre of mahattan. it is not cheap (some 250 USD per night w/out breakfast (13 USD) and wifi (10 USD)), but that is probably not the case anywhere in this part of the city.
i actually liked the design, the kingsize bed was large enough even for my 193 centimetres and very comfortable - one of the best i ever had in hotels over the world. the room was just fine. everything clean and maintained. i missed the coffemaker i am used to in US hotels of any class, though.
i never had the hotel breakfast because i peeked on it and did not like it much.. but there is a number of places to eat for nice prices just a few steps around. wifi was fast enough for normal use including some streamlined video news from my home country.
if you are a thinsleeper, avoid rooms in lower floors facing broadway or 54th; NYC never sleeps and is always noisy, and so are the road builders - in my case, one night the heavy machinery repairing 54th st. was making a REAL rumpus all night long - but i am not a thin sleeper. but many people i know would not close their eyes in my room (308).

all and all, the hotel is a reasonable choice if you are ok with the price. if not, think about another part of the city.
personally, i love brooklyn :-)

Room Tip: rooms facing the street might be very noisy, especially in the lower floors.

Hotel very clean and modern, good location for sightseeing and eating out, Times Square and Central Park both very close. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms very small, not a huge problem as we weren't there much, only for sleeping. Only issue was where to put our 2 suitcases! Great place to stay if you want an easy location for sightseeing, would recommend it.

Was in NY for business and chose this hotel. Wrong choice for a business traveler as it has a great location if you are planning to go to the theatres but not good for business. There is basically just a bed and not even a desk to write on and no place to even put your luggage.
The housekeeping keep taking away towels without replacing them. I started with 2 face towels, then 1, then none.
There is nothing really wrong with the hotel, just not the right hotel for what I needed.

Dear XP-Traveler,

Thank you for telling us about your experience at The Ameritania. We are sorry to hear that the room was not to your liking. We hope you will give us another try and stay in one of our Deluxe King or Deluxe Double rooms, both of which are spacious and have large desks.

I am disappointed to hear that your towels were not replaced. I can assure you that this is not our standard. I will bring this up with our Director of Housekeeping to ensure this mistake does not happen again.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We hope to see you again in the near future!

Best Regards,

Judson Trapnell

My friend and I arrived on Thurs 5th June 2014 and were greeted by a member of staff, Jeff, who guided us with a smile to the reception desk. He then made sure that our luggage made it to our room as soon as we had the room number. The room, 1108, was better than standard, with a decent view out on to 54th and part of Broadway. One issue was the drone of the air con and random plumbing noises from the bathroom, but these were minor. The location is fantastic for midtown with a +/- 5minute walk to Times Sq and Central Park. Jeff also arranged return travel arrangements to the airport on Monday, which we were extremely thankful.

Room Tip: If possible request a high room.
