Good location

Posted Jun 29, 2015
You're paying for location, and the staff is a lovely bonus. It is small, as all the older hotels in New York are, with one slow elevator. The only real negative is the breakfast - there is not enough room for everyone, so you could end up waiting a long time to even go in. I would stay there again, but I would assume I would need to eat elsewhere.

Great location for inexpensive hotel.

Posted Jun 24, 2015
Pros: The location and the price.
Cons: Hotel could use a make-over but then the price would go up. Would be nice to have an ice machine.
Location: Hotel is located in midtown Manhattan near the Empire State Building. Walking distance to shopping and the food courts between Herald and Greeley Squ
Check in was easy with parking garage across the street. Hotel is centrally located with a wide choice of restaurants nearby. You will probably not want the hotel breakfast. Our room was small but clean and had comfortable beds. Bathroom needs more counter space but was clean with a tub/shower. Staff were very helpful and always available. Considering the hotel's location and comfort level I would call this a very good choice for the tourist who wants to see the sites and is not so concerned about the glamour of a more expensive hotel.

Will come again. Interior doesn't reflect age and is very quiet.

Immaculate and reasonably priced

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Location: Close to Empire State Building.
Hotel was immaculate. Staff was friendly, competent, and prompt. Well located in Koreatown. Has nice second floor lounge. Breakfast was a rather perfunctory Continental. Now a weird comment: in-room safe stopped working halfway through visit. But it did not matter: there was no way any of the staff were going to take anything... Overall, excellent value. Would stay there again.

Zentral, günstig, gut

Posted Jun 18, 2015
Liegt super zentral, dennoch nicht an einer ultra lauten Kreuzung, wie viele andere Hotels in der Gegend (es ist natürlich trotzdem laut draußen, New York eben). Metroeingang nur wenige Meter neben dem Hotel (34Street. Optimale Haltestelle, vor allem zu den typischen Touri-Attraktionen). Hotel ist noch von dieser schönen altmodischen Sorte. Sauber und gepflegt. Zimmer sind von der Größe her OK, Stadthotel eben. iIh vermisse in amerikanischen Hotels oft den Kleiderschrank (im Zimmer gibt es einen Wandschrank mit Stange und kleiner Kommode, für 2 Personen schon recht wenig). Dazu leider auch keine richtigen Ablagemöglichkeiten oder Haken im Bad. Frühstücksraum ist eher nüchtern, das Essen beschränkt sich auf die typischen Basics des Kontinentalfrühsrücks. Passt aber prima, wer hier wohnt, will nicht 2 Stunden lang ausgiebig frühstücken, sondern was im Magen haben, bevor er/sie sich ins Stadtgetümmel stürzt. Personal ist nett und zuvorkommend, hilft gerne, weiß viel, aber nun auch nicht alles (was bei einer Stadt wie New York auch unmöglich ist). Eine Lösung findet sich hier immer! Alles in allem ein Hotel mit einem Top Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Optimaler kann man als Tourist kaum wohnen, insbesondere was die Lage angeht. Aber auch ansonsten ist das Hotel sehr empfehlenswert, für den Preis wird man kaum etwas besseres in der Innenstadt finden, kleine 'Schönheitsfehler' sind da easy zu verkraften! Ich würde definitiv wieder dieses Hotel buchen!

Good enough

Posted Jun 18, 2015
Depending on the price this place may be good enough for your needs. It's not modern by any measure but it does the job. Big negatives; Limited cable channels Low water pressure in the shower No view Everything looks old

Overall, really good

Posted Jun 8, 2015
Cons: Breakfast should be more flexible.
Location: A block from the Empire State Building, walking distance to everything in Mid-Manhattan.
While the room was good and the staff were great, the breakfast let it down a little. The promise of free breakfast required that you line up for 10-30 minutes to get a seat. You cant take food away without paying $10 for it. Everyone in the hotel has to share about thirty tables, and the rush is a little silly.

Great location and super staff.

Posted Jun 7, 2015
Pros: -Location -Staff -Room size -Value
Cons: The continental breakfast. Some better coffee and bagels (no one should have to eat bad bagels in NY) and a few more choices (cereals, fruit, yogurt).
Location: Fantastic! Penn Station/MSG a block away. 34th st station can get you anywhere. Easy walk to the Village. ESB and Macy's nearby. Feels safe at night.
This was our second time staying at the Stanford, and it once again worked very well for us. The location is amazing - 10 minute walk to the Flatiron District in one direction and 10 minutes to Times Square in the other. There is a subway exit/entrance right on the block which takes you into the 34th Street/Herald Square station. The staff has always been very helpful and courteous. The rooms are actually quite large by NY standards and include a small fridge, which we find helpful. (No coffee maker or kettle though). The free wifi works pretty well, too, and is not standard in many NYC rooms. It took us a night to figure out the climate control (it was May and quite warm) but once we did and kept the windows closed it was fine. The elevator is a bit slow but not bad. It's New York, after all, and we don't go there to spend a lot of time in our hotel room! The one caution I would include is DON'T BOOK THIS HOTEL BASED ON THE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST INCLUDED! It's really not very good - some pedestrian bagels and pastries and poor coffee. There is a coffee place across the street (Speedey's I think) and another little kiosk in Greeley Square that sells coffee and empanadas. We partook of the continental a couple of days, but spent our money on breakfast elsewhere most days. Overall this has been a great hotel for us.
