The view was the best feature and the service was good. Friendly staff The room I stayed in was much smaller then I had anticipated. The hotel website boasts large, roomy suites.. also the room had an offensive odour. If I can find a less expensive deal for this hotel I will stay again otherwise for the amount I payed I can get much better! Paid $450/night.
Cookies on arrival. Separate sleeping quarters with closing door, (bath is Jack and Jill so can shut bedroom, but kids can still use bath) fridge, safe, hairdryer, microwave. Extra bed is $25/night so asked for packnplay (free) and my 5-year-old slept in there. Had crib sheet and small blanket. You are smack dab in Times Square (can be very crowded right out the door, hold your kids tight). NQR train literally outside and uptown will drop you off at Bloomingdales. Or walk 2 avenues to 5th with shopping. on 17 th floor and very quiet. Could hear sirens at times, but never woke us up. Black out shades make is very dark and close by overlapping, so no need to rig it shut. AC gives off good white noise. Coffee cart right outside. Evergreen coffee shop around the corner and SUPER fast during weekdays. Bed was comfortable enough, but could still feel my husband turn. No USB plugs. At first we had no towels. They brought towels up pretty quickly. Then I later realized there was a dirty bar of soap in the shower I asked to switch rooms, because I did not feel that this room was clean. They switched us to Hilton honors room immediately, which had free Wi-Fi for guests. This was reasonable compensation. The rooms could use a little repair. There was part of a sticker left on furniture, broken tile in the bathroom, wallpaper was coming up in the corners, curtain rod and was broken off the curtains in the window, fridge would freeze food . Nothing unexpected. We would stay there again.
Location was great, right in the moddle of Times Square with easy access to shows, many subway lines, Central Park and more. Hotel was spotless and roomy, esp for a NYC hotel. Would definitely stay again. Could be a bit loud with all the honking taxis and construction outside
Location was great. Rooms clean and useful.
Everything about the stay was top notch!
Everything.. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. Food was very good but dear enough. Rooms were very spacious and comfortable. Cleaned everyday and fresh towels and sheets. The location was amazing. Literally walk out the door onto Times Square.
The staff was very friendly and helped us when needed. They were not hesitant to ask if we needed any assistance. We were also a little late in checking out and they were super nice about it. Highly recommended
Great location. Large rooms. Very quiet. Rooms are older. Firnishing are worn out. Bar in the lobby has only basic drinks and bottom shelf wines.
I loved the size and cleanliness of the rooms and the location of the hotel. I didn't like that you needed to take an elevator to the lobby and then another to the room. While there it seemed like only a few elevators were working and the hotel was crowded because of superbowl weekend. There was no decent lounge or gift shop.
Rarely do the descriptions match what you get, this exceeded my expectations. Will stay there again.
Good sized rooms Great arrangement for families Right in Times Square if that is what you want. Good value if you need two rooms. Food in hotel was extremely limited Left for airport and couldn't find coffee at 6 a.m A little too much Times Square...accosted by tour guides every time you walk out of hotel door.
The hotel was in the most central area that anyone could wish for. Shows, tourist trips, lights, excitement. Very nice suites and clean. Trying to unload bags from a vehicle is difficult as you have to stop by the kerb illegally. The staff were extremely inconsistent. Some showed excellent efficency and politeness however some really griped me. Breakfast is somewhat below average for the price.
The staff was absolutely amazing. Especially Rocky and Jenny. They were friendly and helpful and always with a smile. The rooms are kept well and are comfortable. The hotel is centrally located so most activities are in walking distance. I will stay there again when I go back in a few months. Everything was great!
staff was outstanding comfortable room, if small great location older building with slow elevators :) small room (but it is Manhattan!)
Location, Location, Location! Great mid-town location, steps away from shops, theaters and landmarks. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room although very small bathroom. Great restaurant! Small bathroom.
Delightful. Very kind staff, lovely room. Very good value at just over $200 Room seemed a bit humid
Cosy and comfortable The ventilation in the toilet is noisy.
Everything... great hotel, great location!
It was clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated, quiet, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service - from doorman to housekeeping to room service,, conveniently located, cozy lobby and library - in short - a gem of a hotel. Will definitely return!! Absolutely no complaints!
Accomodations and staff were wonderful. Location is convenient and in an extremely staff area.
Location was excellent. I thought my room was way too small. I was in one of the 02 rooms and it was tiny. never stay in any of the rooms that end with 02. There was a gentleman in the library when I was there speaking on the cell phone complaining that his closet at home was bigger than his room. I asked to change out of my room and they said they were sold out. I will never stay at this hotel again unless I am shown the size of the room first. Otherwise, it was clean, good location and good staff.
We arrived early and our room was ready. We were able to check into our room early which was very much appreciated after traveling all night on the red eye. The staff was friendly, attentive and the hotel was charming and very clean. Great location to everything. We really enjoyed the Lantern's Keep downstairs.
Our stay at the Iroquois New York was absolutely fabulous. From the moment we arrived, we received excellent service from all the staff. The room was very clean and well appointed. The location was perfect. Vanessa, the concierge, was absolutely amazing; not only did she provide excellent recommendations for restaurants and attractions, but she went the extra mile in assisting us with obtaining a metro card for the subway. We will certainly recommend the Iroquois to our friends and plan to stay here again for our next visit to New York!
Conveniently located,comfortable,pleasant stuff.
good service and central position for sightseeing and shopping. we waited 20 minutes for somebody to help us with our cases from the 42nd floor to a waiting taxi and nobody arrived. we had to manage 4 large cases on our own.to the waiting taxi..
noice from the peopel who clen the rooms
Well placed,we went a lot to the theatre, conciers and the theather -people were extremly helpful and nice Nothing
Location, staff friendliness, room standards
i loved the location
The hotel was very nice, verrry expensive. Seconds away from the heart of time square. Great experience!! Cost of items were outrageous, but that is probably just New York, Time Square.
location cleanliness and front desk staff
Great location!! The hotel was very clean and the staff was really nice and helpful.
The service was excellent
Walking distance to subway, Times Square, 5th Avenue, and various popular eateries We asked for a fridge but never got one. ; ( however, it's ok bc we weren't in the room much anyways
Location is great and NYC atmosphere is why you head to this area. Hotel is going through renovations and rooms were not clean. Bathroom had mold and tub was missing shower parts. Not what we expected.
We liked that we could walk to the Majestic to see The Phantom and the feel that we were in the middle of the city. We were on the 45th floor and we hardly got any sleep. Our neighbors were partying from 11:00 pm-2:00am. Lots of slamming doors and arguing. It was horrible and when I finally called at 2:00 am the person at the desk made it feel like it was my fault for not calling earlier. You need to have security making rounds to insure a pleasant stay for your guests. Plus, it was our 10th anniversary!!!!!
Great location, friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Choose a street facing room if possible, as some rooms are claustrophobic.
Great location, and wonderful staff Overpriced for such small and unclean rooms. Our window was broken and we could hear everything at night, which in Times Square is loud and at times unbearable.
This was our third stay at the Time over the last 5 years and we've never been disappointed. Especially for the price! Staff was super friendly; comfy, modern room; great location in the theatre district and time square; room service breakfast (from the Serafina) was excellent Only annoyance was that there was a sign at check in offering 20% off breakfast for guests; so we ordered accordingly, only to find out that room service wasn't eligible. If the food wasn't delicious we probably would've made a bigger stink about it
The staff at this hotel were all amazing. Each one as helpful and friendly as the next. The hotel has a very nice bar/ restaurant attached. The bed was super comfy, amazing waterfall showers, and great room service menu as well. Super central to everything, shops, food, shows, transit. Our AC broke over night, so we woke up to a huge puddle and part of the carpet was soaked from the AC leaking, but we we're checking out that day anyway and it was not anyone's fault.
I loved the room it was both clean and very spacious, my wife and I frequently stay in hotels due to both business and leisure and will definetely be returning to the time.
We liked the simply look of the room and bathroom. Very modern and abstract. Our stay was for a short period time so not much to comment on.
The room was comfortable, a good size and very quiet. Ammenities were updated. It should be a beautiful hotel when the project is finished. Hotel was under construction which was not noted in the description. The lobby was moved to the second floor (from the first) and lots of workers and equipment were evident. there was a bit of work dust in the 2nd floor lobby.
Very compact room and compact environment
The rooms were dingy. The service was awful. We paid over $500 for the room and we didn't get what we paid for - Queen bed. They first tried to put us in a full bed room and then we had to go downstairs and complain. The rooms looked much better on the site than in "really life". The beds were gross with the blue comforter. The only thing that was nice was the tiny bathroom. I wouldn't stay here again.
Location was perfect . Check in and check out is very easy and staff was very friendly . We request for double bed and sofa we paid more to get room like that but sofa was too old to sleep on and they bring us roller bed but matteres was very uncomfortable that u can feel all the metal under the sheet.
Very Nice Hotel with a lot of action Expensive
Location Response time of the staff and high cost to eat hotel restaurant...
Great location and some great views. They apperently give every person in the hotel access to the executive lounge. I'm used to a crowd at times but this was crazy. They need to either expand the lounge or enforce the entry policy.
We loved our view of the city, the lady at front desk upgraded our room at no charge, clean rooms, friendly staff, within walking distance of everything, will definitely stay here again Breakfast buffet way overpriced for the quality
Charge for parking,time to get car,comfort of room.
The is the one of the best locations in the theater district. Most of the major theaters are located within three blocks of the hotel. The same day ticket office is located yards away from the hotel so you can get up early to get your ticket and then return to your room. The hotel entrance is right off times square. The hotel is clean large and and the staff is very friendly and efficient. Many family oriented dining establishments are nearby as well as easy access to the subway and various tour operators. The hotel is large and is used as a convention facility. So if you do not like large crowds and being in the location that is busy and very active during the evening hours, this is not the place for you.
View Restaurant staff was great! Nice suite with view of Broadway. Construction noise in the morning.
Location No elite services on weekends - $ charge to print out boarding pass - failed to clean room - front desk staff was not guest oriented - platinum member - will look for other hotels.
The View Restaurant was absolutely amazing. Room was lovely. Staff was knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Leaving!
People at front desk were nice The customer service at the view lounge was terrible. The lady that served us did not believe that we enter staying at the hotel and Saud very loud that the room number that we gave her did not exist and I showed her my key. She was very rude we felt embarrased.
Our stay was fine. The staff was friendly, the room was clean. As one would expect for $400/night. The ticket counter for local shows was very helpful/convenient. automated elevator system crammed too many people into each trip testing the fire alarm system each day that we stayed very uncomfortable sofa bed mattress (felt every spring)
I like the hotel decor
staff... excellent service. though it takes 40 mins to get a bucket of ice.
How close it was to 5th Avenue Nothing
Jessica on concierge was fantastic. She was very helpful and was very friendly. As well as being the only person you literally have any contact with. I really was disappointed with the ambience each afternoon. It felt like we were walking into a nightclub each day. The lighting was perfect, however the music very obtrusive and the relaxation of the hotel was not there.
OUtstanding bar with great ambience Room fairly small but still very comfortable
As a regular guest at other Morgans Hotels, I was once again left completely impressed and taken by the ambience created in each of their hotels, from decor, to music, to design to their staff. Ideal location, lovely bar/foyer, wonderful cocktails, fantastic service.
The deluxe rooms are a good size considering NY space. The baths in the deluxe rooms are a real indulgence if you have the time to take advantage of them, the staff are helpful and friendly and the hotel generally achieves its 'cool' status if that's important to you. Just a heads up, it is a real favoured after work drinking hub and often still much like a bar into the late evenings. Nice touch with the Ipad in the room, location was spot on and easily accessible to all the areas. Overall I enjoyed my stay at the Royalton, but had gotten a good rate through booking.com. Paying standard rates I may have felt it was alot of money for what it was. Concierge Sasha was exceptionally helpful and was always willing to help. Whilst I appreaciate the mood and ambience of the hotel it would be nice to have been able to get more natural light into the room, we faced the inner courtyard so this might have attributed. I found the cost of the room service pretty expensive but the food was good if small in portion. My main gripe was the internet in the room, for a pretty signigicant charge it would cut out regularly if two consoles or laptops were being used at the same time (I was there on business), suggestion for improvement would be maybe a more varied offering in the gym it was relatively limited on the machines.
I loved the environment. It was very friendly and warm. My bed was comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. I wish the TV was in a better location and the iPad had more apps on it.
the room makes me feel comfortable the staff is very nice i love staying at Hilton definitely coming back !
Flexible with checkout, very helpful staff. For the price, breakfast and internet should be included.
Location was awesome, and we were upgraded to a deluxe room with sweet views. Definitely worth it. Parking was confusion as address given online did not match where to valet park, which was awful because traffic around Time Square is insane sometimes.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Easy access to elevators to rooms. Staff was very courteous & accommodating. No problems.
Good value for being in the middle of Manhattan.
Hotel was excellent - perfect location if you want to be in the middle of the action in NYC. Staff was courteous and extremely helpful. Room size was great, room was clean and comfortable. Excellent value!
the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was very very clean and comfortable . the view was great as well. there wasn't one thing id complain about.
Rooms were large compared to many other hotels in New York.
Took the wife to NYC for a romantic getaway, and wanted to stay in the Times Square area to be close to theaters. This property was perfect for us! Clean, modern rooms with everything we needed, and all within a short walk to the heart of Times Square. we would stay here again in a heartbeat. On the check in website, I made request for highest floor possible with a great view away from the elevator. We ended up on the 29th floor, corner room at the end of the hall which was everything I asked for. At check in I also requested late check out and was allowed 2.5hours which was perfect for our departure to the airport. this Hilton and its staff were top notch. Thanks! Room was cool, had to crank the thermostat to 80 to get warm . This could have been due to havering a corner room with lots of windows. Housekeeping, unfortunately, turned the heat back to 67 each day so the room was cool'ish when we got back each evening. Not a huge concern.
Centrally located cozy Hairs in the tub :x
Nice size room, very comfortable bed, adequate closet space, fabulous shower, ample comfortable soft towels, jingling chandelier lights in the elevators, breakfast room with coffee & croissants Noise neighbors - caused us a loss of a solid night's sleep. Would have preferred a coffee maker in the room.
the location was perfect for a weekend in New York. The room was spotless. The complimentary breakfast was the icing in the cake. When we arrived, the front desk staff was so busy talking among themselves that they didn't notice us when we walked up, we had to politely interrupt them.
Location in midtown is excellent The restaurant is not special and there is no dedicated lounge area
My boyfriend & I arrived separately. So I left a note with front desk reception to ask him to meet me for dinner. When he checked in, it was communicated. We originally had a suite next to the elevators on the 7 floor, but the white decor left me feeling too whitewashed. I requested another suite line on the same floor. Within 10 minutes the change was made and our new suite felt warm and cozy! This is my 2nd stay here & we enjoyed our stay. We'll return here for sure. I didn't like that Wifi isn't included in our room rate. You have to go to the lobby area in order to get it. Let's face it; that's sucky. It should already be included in your room rate. Also I think the continental breakfast should include more options like eggs, along with the pastries. Maybe even dried salami/ select meats.
The concierge The. Breakfast and the fact that the windows were so filthy we couldn't see outside the window
big room a bit corny
We enjoyed our stay the rooms were beautiful and well kept. the staff was exceptional, they paid alot of attention to detail.
good hotel no
Upon entering the hotel I marveled at the grand chandelier beaming overhead. I felt like I was entering a royal facility! The reception was pleasant and professional, quick to check me in. After unpacking in my room, I asked for a change of room. Due to the surprise of my room facing a wall of another building, scratches on the furniture, low room temp, dark/ not enough light, and low cell phone signal. I called downstairs, and within 5 minutes I was pleasantly upgraded to a 1 Bedroom Suite. Let me say, the Suite life is for me! Yes! My Suite had parque flooring, marble wall and interior. The separate living room had 12 lush red pillows on 2 black striped sofas, complete w mini bar, separate bathroom and a huge mirrored wall. Exquisite! My bedroom was outstanding! 60 inch flat screen TV, golden gilded glass desk, walk in closet and the bathroom had a bidet. Oh what a wonderful experience! I didn't like that Wifi wasn't already included in the room feature; it was an additional charge of $15 p/day! Ridiculous. They have to change that, it's modern to include Wifi in the Hotel room itself.
staff generally very friendly, rooms really great...staff actively upgraded us. quiet, peaceful; bathrooms nice, clean, friendly, bellmen great, helpful, went out of their way, would clearly come again and recommend to others. waitress at bar a little off putting. had some difficulty storing bags at checkout....seems that some people did not want them.
Ambiance of Europe . Clean and tidy . . All the furnitures were in good shape. Air conditioning system is old and noisy
Amazing and everyone is so polite.
Staff was always very kind and helpful. We also liked the overall style. Soundproofing between rooms was not adequate. Did not bother us anyway.
The Hotel was in a perfect location just off Times Square. The staff were very helpful and courteous! On our only night staying we were kept awake most of the noght by other guests fighting and shouting this followed by the NYPD calling and trying to get into their rooms. Also i got a massive electric shock from turning the light switch on! But apart from minor details all was fine
This is an incredibily chic hotel. I only wish I'd known about it the last time I was in NY. Will stay there everytime I'm in NY! Fantastic location, pristine rooms, fabulous decor, staff very friendly and helpful. and Brilliant rates! Why stay anywhere else! Even my local friends wanted to move in!
the bed ! the night when two men had a fight (at 3 AM during 1 hour !! )
The location is perfect, the staff are courteous and helpful. It definately lives up to the image, very trendy & chic. We were not advised about the bar being closed before we arrived or the building works taking place opposite the hotel.
location, staff.... non stop music .....
Location. Service inconsistent....some good, some fair, Barry is excellent. Room very small...no wardrobe or bureau...mini fridge in closet too up room. No real room service. One thing to try to be hip and create atmosphere but dark lobby and such was just too over the top...trying too hard.
The layout, staff were very friendly, location is secnd to noneand the beds are the comfiest in the world no
Location and Price The rooms are tiny!
Cost Bathroom - too small.
We loved the location, it is literally two blocks from times square and many broadway shows. The room was tiny, like barely could walk around the bed tiny. We also paid alot of money for the room that was that small. We also had a view of a roof with hoses all over the place and in disarray. Also the building next door is undergoing construction which we were never warned of until we got there and I am a light sleeper, I was up until midnight and later with the jackhammer going off. I told the girl that I was a light sleeper at check in and she shrugged saying the room we had was as far away from the noise as possible but we were on the second floor on the same side as the construction. Check out also took forever and we were the only ones in the lobby at 5:45 am.
Small rooms, very small and slow elevators. No ice !
Room was extremely clean and the hotel was in a great location Room was very small, upgraded to queen size bed (just took up more space in room) but who spends time in their room in NYC
a step out of the door and you're in times square. staff was very helpful and friendly. parking was a step away or there's vallet, the pricing wasn't bad for parking either. luggage check in if you arrive before your check in time the rooms were very small and not as clean as the pictures, shelf above sink was broke so everything kept falling into the sink, paint was peeling off the walls and the fridge smelled like a spilled beer has been sitting for a month. the elevator was very small and was extremely slow.
I loved everything Some of the pricing
The elivator is very tight and slow
Nothing they made me a fee of $ 100 and never returned to me my card
Nothing Everything Except location
The location can't be beat, a half block off Times Square. We were in town for a concert at Madison Square Garden which was an easy walk from the Hotel. The rooms were modern and unique. I could have easily spent twice as much to stay at one of the brand name hotels nearby but I'm so glad I didn't. The construction next door created some traffic issues which meant a lot of noise. But we were so exhausted from walking around that we didn't have any trouble falling asleep. The construction itself didn't bother us.
Location Bar staff was not prepared
Nothing. There was a night club below us that went on until 5am loudly in the morning. They did comp my night thankfully. Horrible experience.
This was our first trip to nyc and chose Sofitel by recommendation as well as location and reputation. It was within walking distance to many attractions as well as excellent places to eat. We felt safe yet away from the main hustle and bustle. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was top class. Thankyou!
Great location, excellent staff combined with a good restaurant and good decor Wifi Should be free
The room was large for new york and very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding!! It includes juice, coffee and a basket of bread and pastries. The best pancakes are at Sofitel. It is a short walk to the theatre. No complaints, I will definitely go back to Sofitel
Location and cleaniness the other guests where a bit rude
The room was overall inviting and the bed and pillows especially comfortable. Having to pay an extra fee for internet access, it should be a part of the cost of the room.
The staff excellent, location perfect comfort first class. Tea & coffee making facilities should be available in the room.
Bed was unbelievably comfortable. Bathroom was not as well outfitted as the bed.
Great location, clean room, staff was very accomodating
The location was perfect for theatre and shopping and catching the subway. The room was a little small. We had two twin beds and really not much of a view. Concierge (one of 3) was not particularly helpful. Very minimal Christmas decorations in lobby, other hotels much more festive.
The location Not the standart I expected, room to small, air conditioning to noise.
Room was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Sometimes I had difficulty understanding the staff as their first language was french.
Extremely friendly staff upgraded us to a king bed, left champagne in our room for our husband's birthday
The most unfriendly staff I have encountered at a hotel
The location was good. Their concierge staff were nice . Check in was quick .we were givin compound of 2 free complimentary drinks from their bar but we did nit use it.wifi was included in the service fees but also I did not need to use it. When I checked in the toilet was ful of hair & there was a nail on the toilet table .generally the housekeeping service is not good. I noticed that paper napkin was not refilled as if they are saying you have to use one box per stay
Location Paid $275 for after show party in the restaurant All they had was 4-5 items of Chinese food and open bar. No menus for food nor drinks. Grumpy wait staff.
I loved the Crowne Plaza Times Square, in addition to friendly and professional service it very clean and comfortable. The hotel was in walking distance to everything we had on our itinerary, the beds were comfortable, so comfortable I slept like a baby.
The website we booked from describes the upper lounge which no longer exists. The in-room guide describes the Room Service Menu. Room service no longer exists.
Location was good They dont encourage people booking hotel from other web sites They prefer it from there site and they help them only . I was staying in hotel for times square view Not for other view Overall worat experience
Great accommodating staff. Helpful concierge. So close to Times Square & all the theaters, so perfect for the 1st time visitor. Clean & comfortable. Beds are nice & cozy. Pool is part of the gym inside the building, so it's only a lap pool. Not for lounging & definitely not for kids. There is a sauna which would be nice in the winter. Very busy hotel! Not a relaxing lobby or even many places to sit (only 4 chairs & some makeshift areas around the plants)! No mini fridge in room.
My wife has a convention here once a year in January so I tag along. We had a stunning view of Broadway and Times Square from our corner room on the 45th floor (out of 46). Room was clean. Service is friendly and courteous. Bell Captain kept our bags for us after checkout so we could do a bit of sight-seeing until we had to go to the airport. When it was time to get our bags, he walked them down to the taxi stand for us and made sure we had a cab. Wi-fi seemed a bit slow.
It was in a perfect location in Times Square. A few blocks from the subway. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Needs some updating/maintenance. For the price you pay for location, seems they could upkeep better. All 3 drawers in our dresser didn't close properly, off track or something. Bathrooms could use some new caulk, gappy and dirty looking.
Great hotel if you're a tourist and want to be in Times Square - easy walking distance to many attractions and not too far can / uber ride to others. The rooms were nice and clean, the maids always bought us new soaps, razors, toothpaste, towels etc. some of the staff are seriously awful. My partner has a severe allergy to nuts, and we had issues with two waiters there who seemed preoccupied and had to ask a manager to go and confirm if there was nuts in a dish she wanted for dinner or not. The waiter made us feel awful and then progressively got ruder (getting in our faces, yelling, etc) after the manager had been involved. We did get given a few free drinks and a box of chocolates from management (although she couldn't have the chocolates due to nuts) But otherwise we had a lovely stay, only ruined by a few staff members who need to learn if you work in a service job it's part of your job to at least TRY and be polite and understanding!
Location of the Crowne Plaza Times Square was perfect and centrally located. The Concierge, Corinne, was amazing. She gave great tips, directions, and was so personable and friendly. Our room was awesome, with a great view. The exercise facility was great, many areas to work out in and a large variety of equipment. All staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time.
Service, location, beds, rooms were right size, showers.
The location was ideal as it was close to tourist attractions. Lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had a very festive luxurious feel. The rooms however were comfortable, standard but clean and gave Bath and Body Works as complimentary toiletries which was a nice touch. Staff were also friendly. Chargable WIFI - We live in a day and age where communication abroad is important to some. Free WIFI should've been included with the room as it wasn't cheap to book here and would be nice if it was complimentary like other hotels in the area. Also we stayed in room 754 where the air con fan wouldn't switch off (in December)!
Location Too noisy
Great Location and wonderful people made this place worth being in NYC!!! Nothing...
Very good, central location on 7th Avenue. Just a few blocks from Times Square, Central Park, immediately adjacent to Broadway...can easily walk (or use subway) to anywhere in Midtown. Hotel staff was courteous and helpful. Had a decent breakfast bar in the lobby with very kind, courteous employees staffing it. Was an enjoyable visit every morning, though it's primarily only got muffins, fruit, and coffee. Room was very minimalist and small. Bed was not particularly comfortable. TV only has a few channels and reception was fuzzy on about half of them. Wi-fi is not free - costs roughly $15 per day, less if you buy several days' worth of usage up front. Noise from the street below was pretty noticeable; it would have been very difficult to tune it out completely had I not been using ear plugs. Basically, it's cheaper than the other (nicer, I would assume) hotels in the area, but the location could make it worthwhile if you don't plan to spend a lot of time in your room...and it's NYC, so why would you? Spend a lot of time out in Manhattan, making use of the great location, and you won't mind the facilities as much.
The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was excellent for our needs. The hotel is tired and worn. It needs an injection of cash to update and refresh the rooms and fixtures. It wasn't the worst place to stay because it was clean and the location was great. The front desk was understaffed at both check-in and check-out. This created long lines and long waits. We had to wait an hour for our room to be ready because they were behind on their turn-overs and we arrived at 8PM. They need to hire more staff for peak times.
Place, location, access, and security
Being close to Broadway, Central Park and Rockefeller Center. The staff was very helpful.
Perfect location. Great value for money.
Location 1. No communication by hotel staff. They tried to place us in a room that is half the size of a regular room without even telling us when we checked in. We found about this when we actually entered the room. After that we had to reconcile this very uncomfortable and unexpected experience. 2. Hotel management spent 10 minutes explaining how they cannot keep the fully paid room and that upon check in they will place and assign the room of their availability. Why bother and pay in advance if there is no guarantee? 3. We didn't feel hospitality was there at all. It truly came across as just another place interested in making money rather than building long lasting experience 4. Hotel is definitely run down and it stinks super bad. 5. We would not recommend this hotel and definitely would not have given it 3 stars. Stay some place else!
Noise from nearby club was very present in the room every night until 2AM
Location Poor a/c - room was very warm. Bathroom was small and bed wasn't that comfortable
The bed was very comfortable. The shower was great. The room was very small - but fine for my purposes. It would be too small if you needed to spend a lot of time in it for any reason.
location was fab and staff really friendly room was smaller than expected but it was what we needed
The location just off Times Square was fantastic. The breakfast was excelent and facilities wee great. we would definatly go again
Clean, comfortable room. Excellent comfortable bed Differing abilities of staff to book taxis. One said "Come to the front desk shortly before it is needed & we will call them." When we did this we were told to go down to Times Square & hail a passing Yellow Cab.
had a lovely time in hotel the best thing was you were aloud smoke in your room
Excellent location in the middle of the time square... the staff were so nice and helpful and gave us very good advices. Rooms were so clean and comfort. It's the best option if you are looking for a good location and convenient price .
The decor was cute. When we went to check-in, the person at the desk couldn't find our reservation (which we placed through Kayak). So he had me show him my confirmation email via my phone. Okay, sure, that's fine. But then he made me email the confirmation to his personal email because he said their accountant would need it.... It was bizarre. I checked that confirmation email up and down later on to make sure there was nothing he could use to steal my identity or commit credit card fraud. Anyway, forwarding my confirmation email to the clerk's personal email just seems very messy and unprofessional. He also charged an additional $25 to my card "in case of extra charges". When I checked out, I did not receive any notice about extra charges. A week later, I still do not have this extra charge back. The wallpaper in the room was peeling. The bed was definitely not the typical comfy hotel mattress I'm used to... it was very firm and the pillows had rough and cheap feeling cases. The bathroom set up is weird. The shower, toilet, and sinks are all exposed to the room. There is a sliding mirror that can either cover the toilet or the shower... not both at the same time. If you like privacy when you use the toilet, this may not be the place for you.
Excellent central location for sightseeing and while the rooms are cozy, they're more than enough. With NYC to explore, you only need a bed to rest your weary head in! Paid just over $900 for 5 nights for the room which is great value for money. Booked a petite room with a double bed and were offered a free upgrade to a standard room with twin beds. Staff were really friendly and happy to chat over breakfast - I personally prefer that to formal hotel 'attentiveness'. Found no issue with the breakfast area - stayed Thanksgiving weekend and were having breakfast around 9am. It was busy but manageable and staff would clear an area asap.
Very friendly staff. Very nice room. Breakfast was good. We particularly liked the 24/7 swimming pool: very cool at nights, with music from a DJ and drinks from the bar. There were no hangers in the room to dry the towels after showering.
The location was very convenient, the bed was super comfy, and the price was rather reasonable compared to the other hotels in the area. The evening pool "party" was a little scandalous, there were some questionable things happening, definitely not a place to take the kids! The front desk staff wasn't rude, but they were not very friendly either.
The decor was really cute, nautical themed! The bed was comfortable and we were able to actually sleep three in the middle of Time Square with one queen on the bottom and a double (I think, that or a twin, but it felt a little bigger) on top! A short walk to the theatre district and close to all the hustle and bustle, but nicely contained. The breakfast was included in our price and it was actually worth it, there was a wider assortment than I usually see in hotel breakfasts and it was served until noon when we were there. I would say overall the amenities put us over the top for the trip. If I had to stay in the middle of the city again, I'd definitely try for this hotel again. There was a few small areas in the room that were peeling and I think a different ladder to get to the top "bunk" would be safer. The tiny metal rungs were a bit precarious (maybe something slightly slanted with larger steps to get up?).
I am not a big fan of being in the middle of Times Square, however Room Mate Grace has a very cozy, boutique feel, which I love. The staff are friendly and I love the design details (ex: dimmer switches!) of the rooms. I am looking forward to staying at Room Mate Isabella in Florence in a month!
Location. First night we stayed in a room facing the street, and couldn't sleep because of the continous thudding noise (caused by the vehicles going over the steel plates covering the construction work). They offered us another room (and 10% discount for the whole stay a gesture we appreciated). The new room was quiet, and we had a good rest. At the checkout, I realized that the discount was applied to 3 nights instead of 4 (I am sure it was an honest mistake). I tried to explain the situation to the clerk, but she acted indifferently, and I didn't have the time/energy to escalate it. Otherwise the staff are very professional and helpful.
