A great hotel,with an ideal location for visiting everything in manhattan,the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you. The rooms were spacious and very clean,the food was excellent with very generous portions and the bar a lively place to be early evening offering a happy hour on drinks , Gillian behind the bar was really helpful and made our stay a memorable one, can not wait to come back next year.

We have been to New York five times and this is our favourite. The location is great being able to walk to many attractions. The subway is near and good restaurants, irish bars near by. The breakfast is a good start to the day and bring able to get tea and coffee all day is a bonus. We will be returning next year.

This was our second stay at this hotel and it was even better this time.
It's not the largest or the most posh but the staff are very helpful and friendly. If you then add the great location it's a superb place to stay.
The simple (included in the price) breakfast is also a bonus.
We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 306 was fantastic but suffered from road noise.

An hotel with smallish bedrooms and en suites but the rooms are comfortable with very clean bed linen and quilts and comfortable bed. Bathroom, although small, was clean with a good power shower. Shampoos etc and hairdryer all fine. Tea/coffee filter machine and fridge in room. Continental free breakfast was definitely just right and tea/coffee available in the hotel at all times. Macys, A metro Station and Empire State Building all very close. Broadway, Times Square walkable and even central park walkable although a bit of a step. We even walked back from ground Zero. Main restaurant and bar at hotel also good, bar snacks or full menu available.

Stayed here for a week during the 'polar vortex' in January. First time in NY so no idea what to expect and where things were in comparison but it was the perfect location. 20 seconds to a tube line, nice view of the empire state building from the roof top, very close to Macy's and other high street shops.
Breakfast was adequate and what you'd expect from a city hotel, no cooked food but plenty of bread / bagels for toasting, yoghurts, fruit, stupidly large muffins, cereal, fruit juice and hot drinks. The place has a real 1940s vibe and the area breakfast is served in is nice with its posters of old movies.
The staff were so helpful and friendly too (as I've found throughout America). Only downside (and its really minor) were the towels in the bedrooms. They were rather scratchy and very small, oh and for me the pillows were massively thick. I did ask if they had any thinner ones and she just joked that perhaps I could try punching it a bit. Finally it was a bit noisy, I'm not sure if that was down to thin windows or if its always that noisy in all hotels in the middle of NY. Doesn't help that there is always some sort of horn or siren going off. Our room was facing the road so perhaps other rooms were quieter. If I ever go back I would definitely consider staying here again.

This hotel was all we could of wanted. The location on 35th street about 2 min walk from macys department store. 5 mins from empire state building. I would recommend visiting the empire state building at night as the views are stunning and it's only a short walk back to hotel.

The room itself, well the shower was the best shower I have ever been in!! The bedroom was very comfortable. I never expected much as it was only a bed base, the bed was comfortable. Television mounted on the wall and a coffee machine in the room.

Hotel Metro is on west 35th st in Midtown it is a perfect location for exploring New York. We landed at Newark NJ & within 2hrs we were at Penn Station (would have been quicker but for immigration)
The hotel is a 5min walk from the station & is really easy to find.
The Hotel itself is decorated in a 1930's style but has all the modern things you would want, wifi, good bathrooms, iron & ironing board, comfy bed.
The staff are very helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, rooms are cleaned daily with towels & soaps, shower gels etc also changed. Board is bed & breakfast which is really good in NY as eating breakfast out would add considerably to your spending, breakfast was continental style but was not limited so you could fill up before starting your day. Coffee was available all day long & again you could have as much as you wanted.
On Tuesday evenings they have a wine & cheese tasting laid on for guests from 4-6pm which was terrific & a good way of meeting other guests in a relaxed atmosphere. We checked out on Friday at 10 am but didn't fly out until 21:00 the bell boy looked after our luggage for us until we left for the airport around 4pm giving us time to do some last minute shopping.
I would return to The hotel Metro any day it is so well located for Macey's, Times Square, Broadway & The Empire State building, a real quality hotel.
