Having stayed at another CitizenM several times I knew what to expect in terms of the room & people... Modern, compact (not in a bad way) with a comfy bed, free wifi, a great shower and very friendly staff.
All these were there at the Times Square CitizenM with the added bonus of being in the heart of New York City right next to both the red & blue lines of the Subway. The lobby, bar area and 21st floor skybar were all excellent with random items of bizarreness dotted around all adding to the feel of a young, vibrant place to stay.
Upsides are the staff who were universally friendly and helpful. The hotel offers a good breakfast selection for a very reasonable $16 if you book this when you check in ($19 otherwise) and food / drink seemed to be available pretty much 24 hours a day. One recommendation is the Boston Brewery IPA on tap in the lobby bar.
Tiny downside if you are inclined is that the rooms let in street noise to a degree (we were on the 9th floor) but you are in the middle of a massive, busy, amazing, police car infested city. No noise from other rooms or neighbours .... Be aware that New York is a busy place and take some earplugs if you get bothered.
For people with technofear, be aware the room is controlled via a tablet and you can find yourself in the dark or bathed in the glow of a red-lit toilet but for me this all adds to the fun of the place. Overall CitizenM NYC was great and I'd recommend it to others.
