Great location for a good deal

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Excellent location and historical hotel. They are renovating but not finished yet.We had 5 people in a suite. The bedroom with 2 beds was fine but the living area had 4 chairs and a single pullout and a small table . It was like we had a huge dance floor for a dance party! But I'm sure too much space in a NYC hotel is rare. The bathrooms need a redo for sure ! This room could have a huge washroom as the closet right beside it is bigger than the washroom. The staff were all excellent and helpful. I would stay again for a good deal as the rooms were clean and again great location.

good place to stay

Posted Jul 26, 2014
Pros: everything above plus they let you check in you luggage if you check in early or want to site see after checkout last day
Cons: only downside - they charge you by the minute for internet use in their business center
Location: within subway/ walking distance of everything you may want to do
Flew into JFK and took the subway to within a block of the hotel. Great location for sight seeing and you don't need a rental car - cabs and the subway are everywhere and easy to use. Fantastic pizza place right across the street. Very professional staff and comfortable room. Bathrooms are retro but clean as is everything in the hotel. I would stay there again.

Old Hotel, in poor condition, overcrowded. Very spacious room with twin beds, an extra room from with sofa bed and dinning room. Very small bathroom!!! old and nowhere to put your stuff. Good value overall.

Girls night out

Posted Jul 25, 2014
Pros: Location....right across the street from Penn Station
Cons: Renovations were apparent...scaffolding covered the front of the building.
Although we're from NJ we decided to take the train in and spend the night and following day for an impromptu mother/daughter trip. We enjoyed dinner (NYC restaurant week), Escape The Room and had drinks on a rooftop bar on a beautiful night and enjoyed the fantastic view of the Empire State Building. The next day we hopped on the subway and enjoyed a bike and walking tour of central park...great trip!

Great value stay

Good location in midtown close to Penn Station. Hotel has a great history but needs more work to bring up to today's standards. Lots of potential and enjoyed the stay!

A centrally located hotel.

Posted Jul 24, 2014
Pros: The proximity to transportation, Times Square and Broadway shows. The staff was very helpful. Security was also tight.
Cons: Coffee pot , coffee or tea should be provided; Room is too small, which would be uncomfortable for 2 adults.
Location: Lots of entertainment but about 10 good size blocks away. Lots of eating places around for light meals or breakfast.
I vacationed for 7 days in New York with my 11 yr.old grandson. Even though the room is very small, it had the necessary conditions for us as all we did was take a bath, go to sleep and wake up early to see the sights. Housekeeping provided us with as many toiletries as we needed. It was close enough that we could walk to Times Square, to Penn Station for subways, and even to see the Broadway shows. The staff was very helpful, they flagged down taxis, signed us for tours, and gave us information when needed. There's a 24 hour restaurant. The menu was not spectacular but it served us when other restaurants were closed, and the food was acceptable. There was a lot of noise in the streets but I had asked for a room in the top floors, which made it very quiet. The only dislike i have is the lack of a coffee pot and coffee in the room and the bathroom fogged when taking a bath because of the lack of an exhaust fan. I could not open the door until i was dressed due to my grandson; As a whole, I was very satisfied.
