"Lovely hotel right in the middle of Times Square"
The location of the hotel is fabulous. A few steps & you're right in the middle of all that Times Square has to offer. The hotel is quite dark inside, a little forbidding at first. However, after all the noise & bustle & the lights outside I found it to be very relaxing.
I found the colour scheme of the hallways outside the rooms to be too dark & dowdy for my own personal taste. However, this was the only draw back.
The staff were very friendly & efficient & extremely helpful.
The restaurant/bar area were very clean & relaxing to be in.
I didn't eat at the hotel simply because there is so many restaurants & bars within easy walking distance.
I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone
I love the location of this hotel! Our room was small as expected, and the sliding bathroom door didn't offer the most privacy. However, those are minor issues compared to the great location, friendly staff, modern design, and comfortable beds. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit to NYC!
I bought this for my parents who were celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary. They live in the mountains of NC and have not traveled very much. They both are big history buffs and the most patriotic people you will ever met. They wanted to visit NYC for the first time, together, and see the sites. My Mother is 68 and my Father is 75. This hotel was the perfect location for them. They loved being across the street from Central Park, was able to walk where they wanted, the subway was 2 blocks from the hotel, wonderful little shops and affordable restaurants...the staff there was exceptionally nice to them and vice versa. My parents loved their stay, had a wonderful room, but it was really the people at the hotel that really made their stay wonderful. Would highly recommend to anyone!
After reading some of the reviews before I went I wasn't really looking forward to our stay here but once we arrived it was a fantastic lobby and there was a big queue at the reception but we was seen rather quickly. The receptionist couldn't help us enough. We got in the room and it was a little dated but it had everything we needed, certainly all the essentials and we had a good view of Madison square gardens. I mean I could be picky but for the money and location we couldn't of done much better. If you want a hotel just to store your things and get your head down this is a great place for that. I really enjoyed my stay in New York and this is ideal if your doing a trip on a budget and don't be put off by past reviews.
