We loved the proximity of the hotel to Times Square and Broadway! Unfortunately the double king room was a single king room so beware when booking they double king means double occupancy not two kings. The room was very small and there was a ringing outside our window every 10 seconds. We were on the 8th floor room 819 so maybe this is just a problem with one room. We called and let them know about the noise but it was never fixed. The breakfasts were very good and included so that was a significant perk.

Location is right in the heart of Manhattan and a block away from Times Square. The decor is contemporary and the rooms are compact (but clean) which you would expect for this zip code. The bathroom was clean and modern too which is a must for me! It was good that there was an empty refrigerator (apart from bottles of water) which enabled me to have enough room to store my own items into the same. There is a good variety of breakfast options although the dining area could be mistaken as a “canteen” due to the amount of guests in this large space! You will need to show proof of vaccine and a photo ID each time you enter the dining area for breakfast. There are a wide range of restaurants and bars on the same street and in neighbouring Hell’s Kitchen, all within walking distance. The staff are approachable and accommodating but I think it lacks that personal touch which you would find in smaller or independent hotel of a similar stature. Nevertheless, I would most certainly return subject to the price of the room rate as it can be rather costly for independent travellers.

I think Riu is a Spanish chain -it certainly attracts and caters to Spanish speakers. Big breakfast, buffet, with Cappacino and espresso, eggs, meats, smoked salmon fruit 4:00 PM check-in was very slow to 40 minutes to get checked in including 15 minutes to take a credit card and verify reservation. Staff was friendly, but concierge's answer to delivering two roses was to call a florist who refused. Ultimately I walked a block and bought them on the street.
