Perfect girls getawayPosted Nov 25, 2013
I made our reservation for 8, got 2 junior suites and hoped for the best. I was not disappointed nor were my girlfriends, we were high fiving!!! Fantastic staff took our bags so we could relax in the lounge with a cup of coffee before hitting the streets to shop. Excellent location to shop, eat, metro, sightseeing. This is our new go-to for our girls getaways. The junior suite was roomy for us all to hang together, comfy beds and newly remodeled bathroom. Highly recommend.

Perfect location.Posted Nov 24, 2013
Pros: Rooms were clean and a decent size, & quiet despite central location. Towels changed every day. Tea, coffee & pastries free during day.
Cons: Shower gel instead of cleansing bar.
Location: Superb location for sightseeing and shopping. Macys, JC Penneys, Broadway for theatre, Rockefeller Centre and Empire State Building for views.
Hotel good for those on budget: central location, continental breakfast and toiletries included, beverages & pastries + wifi during certain hours of day. Good wine bar open in evening and v popular with local Korean community. Close to Herald St subway, as well as Penn St and Grand Central Station for longer journeys. We walked to most places but subway close by if needed. We saw a lot in 4 days without losing travel time. Staff helpful - extra pillow supplied when requested.

NEW YORK NOV 2013Posted Nov 23, 2013
Pros: Staff-friendly, polite & courteous. Rooms spacious and clean. Central proximity to get around.
Cons: Not allowed to deteriorate as some hotels have once become popular.
Location: Central for shopping, site seeing.Transport available a few feet away to take you uptown to Central Park or downtown to Battery & Statue of Liberty
Have stayed in various hotels in New York over the years, however first time at Stanford which was picked from your reviews as we wanted proximity to Empire State to visit friends we have made over the years. The hotel staff were friendly, polite and courteous from entering the hotel until we left. The rooms we had were spotless and cleaned every day, with clean towels available without request. There was a continental breakfast available which was enough for us but our friends chose to go for a full lumberjack breakfast nearby. The hotel is central for all shopping areas in Manhattan and transport availability to Times Square or downtown is a few feet away. We liked it so much that we will be booking it on our return next year. THANKYOU.

Nice hotel convenient to the subwayPosted Nov 20, 2013
Pros: The location was perfect. I was only a few blocks from the bus drop off, half a block to the subway. My room was clean and spacious for my solo stay
Cons: My only complaint was that the bed was very hard, so hard that my shoulder was sore the next morning. Very strange.
Location: Walking distance to garment district (fabric stores). Many Korean/Asian restaurants. Pub one block away with great chicken salad sandwich.
I unexpectedly needed a last minute hotel. I checked on Thursday and found a booking at this hotel for the following night, a Friday in NYC. I was very impressed with the room which was newly renovated. The bathroom was nicely done, the bedding was clean, new flat screen tv. Continental breakfast included. That night I was able to walk to end of the block and hope on the orange line to head to the West Village. The next day I hopped on and headed to Times Square. I will definitely try to stay in this hotel the next time I'm in NYC.

Great location!Posted Nov 18, 2013
Pros: Location of the hotel and the staff were always pleasant, professional and willing to help.
Cons: A second elevator.
Location: Empire State Building is within walking distance and Times Square and Rockefeller Centre are just one subway stop away.
Very friendly staff and I enjoyed the daily breakfast. The only slight annoyance was that only one elevator was working making it tiresome waiting to go up and down especially during peak times of the day and night. Apart from that, a great experience and would stay there again and recommend it for anyone travelling to New York.

Another good option in this neighbourhoodPosted Nov 17, 2013
Pros: Location, staff service level, size of room, overall value.
Cons: Room temperature controls, coffee at the breakfast.
Location: Fantastic location. Subway entrance on the corner, Empire State Building and Penn Station nearby, 10-15 min walk to Times Square or Flatiron district.
We have stayed at another hotel in this area twice before so were comfortable with the location, which is awesome. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was bigger than we were used to. We were on the 10th floor and the elevator's pretty slow, but the walk down the stairs wasn't bad. We had a hard time making the room comfortable in terms of temperature - it often ran hot and we couldn't seem to get the cooling to work. To be fair, we didn't tell them about it so they could fix it, which in hindsight we should have done. The included continental breakfast was average, except for the coffee, which was awful. We took to getting coffee at Speedie's across the street and bringing that in. We were there to get married; overall it was a very positive experience.

Convenient to lower ManhattanPosted Nov 9, 2013
I've stayed at the Stanford every time I've gone to New York over the last 5 or so years, and I still recommend it. It's perfect as a home base for any kind of trip to NY that I take. I don't travel to stay in a hotel, I stay in a hotel because I have traveled to the area for either business or personal reasons and the room is a place to go when the business is done. The Stanford is a short walk from Penn Station/Madison Square Garden and since I prefer to travel to NY by rail, that's perfect. It's a few blocks from Times Square, around the corner from the Empire State Building, and there's a subway station practically at the front door. It's also right on Manhattan's "Korea Way," another plus to me as a lover of Korean cuisine. Fancy? No. Lavish? No again. But in my opinion, it's a good value for the price, in a very good location, clean, and the staff are always very polite. Negatives? Well, the elevator could be a little quicker and the view out my window was awful, but in lower Manhattan, there's not much interesting to see out a hotel window anyhow.
