Very central budget hotel

Posted Sep 27, 2014
Pros: Close to Penn Station
Cons: Decor could be brighter
Location: Close to Penn Station
Room was very quiet. No view only brick wall of next building but only used room for sleeping in as out and about all day in NYC. Breakfast was just basic pastry and bread coffee & orange juice... don't expect much but enough to get your day started and it is free. This is not a luxury hotel but you get what you pay for.

Great location and staff

Posted Sep 23, 2014
Pros: Great location, friendly staff, clean room and just great experience.
Cons: The elevators are slow and quite old and the breakfast wasn't that good at all. The room has no romantic atmosphere to it, not really for couples.
Location: It is very close to everything we wanted to see and is in walking distance from South Beach's night life and main streets.
The location of this hotel is just one of the best possible locations in South Beach. It is very close to everything we wanted to see and is in walking distance from South Beach's night life and main streets. The staff was very kind and helpful. One problem we had was that the toilets got clogged up one time. We called the desk and it was fixed within 10 minutes.

Good location - but hotel dated and past its prime

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: Location, right in the middle of K-Town (Korean Town).
Cons: Paint the place! Replace Carpets! Use room fresheners! Renovate!
We booked the hotel to stay with some friends in the same vicinity.. and the location is good, smack in the middle of K-Town and easy walking to TimeSquare, but the hotel was "OK" at best. They had only “deluxe” rooms left at time of booking (at a VERY high price) and I was relieved to at least be rewarded with a spacious room, including a small sofa, seating area, bathroom with a window, a small fridge etc. The room was overall ok. But everything about this hotel screams “past it’s prime”: The lobby is shabby and needs renovation. The carpets are all worn. In our room, the carpet from the room into the bathroom was so stained over the yeast that you can’t walk barefoot. I shudder to think what various accidents took place here. All(!) carpets need to be replaced, hallways, rooms, etc. While you're at it: paint the place. The free continental breakfast was sad - you get a coffee and a bagel, that’s pretty much it. Overall, would I stay there again or even recommend to a friend? No. Sorry…

Ideal base for exploring Manhattan

Posted Sep 21, 2014
Pros: Attentive and helpful staff, handy location, 'junior suite' just right to accommodate a family of four (including grown-up children).
Cons: Breakfast was effectively just pastries and bagels. Cooked breakfasts would require expanded facilities, but a cereal option would be easy to provide.
Location: Korea town. Empire State building, Macy's and Penn Station nearby. Central Park not too far away.
Hotel Stanford is in the Korean part of the city, and ideally placed not just for a selection of Korean restaurants, but also for the Empire State building, Macy's department store, and Penn Station for the subway. The staff were unfailingly polite and helpful, and could offer advice and assistance to the most ignorant of tourists (i.e. me). The room - we had a junior suite to accommodate four of us - was clean and spacious, with more storage space than we could actually use, plus a sturdy-looking and easy-to-use safe. Arranging an extra bed was no trouble.
