Good central location

Posted Apr 16, 2014
Pros: As above
Cons: nothing
Location: Very close to Empire State, Macy's and shopping. Convenient for buses to all over Manhatten.
Close to Empire State Building and convenient for bus routes. We travelled to Penn Station only 2/3 blocks away. Nice to have free tea and coffee between 8am and 4 pm in bar and happy hour following 50% off. Breakfast was continental and ok. Overall a very nice hotel would definately stay here again.

A hotel that is in good location

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: Close & convenient to do the activities you want to do in the city.
Cons: Sometime you need to wait to have your breakfast as the space is small. If you want to bring the food to your room you need to pay $10.
The hotel staff were nice & the room was cleaned well everyday. However, on top of the bed side tables & a dressing table had the glass surfaces & need to be cleaned as looked dusty in between.

In the heart of The City

Posted Apr 9, 2014
Pros: Perfect location to explore the city. Friendly, efficient staff, and very comfortable accommodation.
Cons: Nothing that troubled us.
Location: The hotel is central for everything from Central Park to Theatreland, Empire State, Rockefeller Plaza, and all the shops you're likely to need.
We only got to spend a couple of nights at this hotel due to a screw-up at Atlanta Airport, but for a 'budget' hotel this is hard to beat. A spacious room, seriously comfortable bed, and a shower to knock your socks off. Okay, so there were no in room tea/coffee making facilities, but the free breakfast, juice, tea, coffee, bagels, muffins & fruit more than made up for it. The staff, from reception to porters, were all most polite, efficient and helpful, and the situation, right on top of everything you come here for, couldn't be better. With the breakfast bakery on one side, and a restaurant on the other you won't have to go far to eat either. This was our first trip to NYC, it won't be our last, and the Stanford will most certainly be the hotel we return to.

Decent hotel for a fair price

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: Location, quiet room, breakfast included in price, bath as well as shower.
Cons: Could do with re-decoration - but then the prices would be higher!!!
Location: Easy walking distance to Penn Statuion, Empire State Building, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Bryant Park, Radio City Music Hall.
Hotel Stanford is well placed for Penn Station (easy train journey from Newark Airport, 5 mins walk to hotel), Times Square, Empire State Building, in fact for all Midtown sites and attractions. It is in very busy Koreatown so expect lots of Korean restaurants and loads of hip young Koreans. The hotel decor is a bit tired but our room was clean and had everything we needed for a 4 night stay. Our room wasn't at the front of the hotel, so while we had no view it was very quiet. We picked this hotel from the Expedia sale as there was no extra charge for a twin bedded room and breakfast was included. Staff were friendly, polite and helpful.

Not a bad experience

Posted Mar 27, 2014
The location and the picture of the hotel convinced me to choose it, but the result was not fully satisfied. The historical style turns out to be a downside of the room. The room is pretty small, and the facilities looks old. The show sounds loud when water came out and only one stream of water! The comforter has strange smell. I give this hotel 3 out of 5 because I had a even worse experience in another "historical hotel". I think this is the last time I try something old.

Excellent Hotel

Posted Mar 27, 2014
Pros: Location
Location: In k-town very near Macy's, Empire State Building and other main attractions.
Brilliant hotel, staff so helpful and friendly. Location is superb and breakfast was a real bonus. Beds very comfy and rooms very clean. Lift Adequate never had to wait long. My room was a twin room and was huge for Manhattan. All in all great place to stay would recommend to anyone.

My 10th Consecutive trip to New York City

Posted Mar 23, 2014
Cons: The only down side was just the single lift
As my title suggests and a top class hotel, in a cracking location to everything you need. This hotel is in my top three as it offers free wifi in the room (12 floor). There is free tea and coffee between the hrs of 8-4 and a complementary breakfast, enough to get you going in the morning. You can appreciate that i have stopped in a lot of hotels in my time in new york city and consider this as one of my best to rest my head, the room was very clean and house keeping kept it tip top all week every day. A safe in the room was very reassuring, and the hotel staff could not do enough for us. A return visit here next year will be in order and look forward to staying here again. :-) Tony and Penny Neal
