My family and I stayed here during our vacation to NYC. It was the only hotel that could accommodate our family of 5. Our room was phenomenal. The staff was great. It was in a great location. Walking distance to the sites and the subway. We will definitely stay here again.

Really good quality hotel just off Times Square. Couldn’t fault it for location or quality of service and cleanliness of the rooms. Rooms are well presented and clean with all you need for a comfortable stay. Staff are also very good. Will stay again for sure next time we are in New York

We have been to NYC numerous times and decided to stay somewhere different this time. The location to Times Square is great. About a minute walk and you are in the middle of the square. Room was the same size as other NYC hotel rooms we’ve stayed. Loved the shower. The elevator wait wasn’t as bad as some people make it out to be and we were up on the 24 floor. Definitely try the breakfast on the 5th floor. Worth the price. Small grab and go for coffee, etc. in the lobby. Also if you arrive before check in, you can leave your luggage with the concierge.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and were very pleased. First off, the hotel is immaculate and the rooms well designed with a modern feel. Location wise, it’s centrally located making it easy to get around NYC as it’s steps away from three major subway lines. That said, Times Square itself is utter trash but the rooms actually have very good soundproofing and we slept soundly despite the noise outside. Given all of the above and the competitive price, we were very happy overall. Things which would have made this a 5 star experience: 1) No coffee maker in the room…I just need to be able to make my own coffee in the room and I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in a hotel without one. 2) Some of the hotel policies just seemed petty - you only get bottles of water on every second day, we were only given 4 cups (and no more!), etc. just odd. 3) There is a major elevator backup/issue every morning as people try to come and go and eat breakfast. One morning, we waited 20 min and couldn’t get on the elevator. We gave up and walked down the emergency stairwell. Not sure if this is a design flaw or due to the hotel being at max capacity (it was super busy)

If you want to be in the middle of all the action and want a new, clean and safe place to rest then this is your spot. Nice full breakfast buffet is available each morning. Elevators are busy during the breakfast hours so plan accordingly.

We enjoyed our 3 night stay here. Room was spacious and cool. Bathroom was great. Ate breakfast one morning which offered a good variety of food and was reasonably priced. Hotel offered a concierge service which we used to book cars for trip outs and airport ( more expensive than other options but convenient). Only downside was a sheet with a hole in and random hairs! Otherwise it’s a great hotel in a perfect location

We really enjoyed our stay in New York. The location was amazing, and the staff was really friendly. The breakfast was delicious. The only negativity was that the elevators often came really slowly. Overall we had an amazing trip!

Stayed here for a week with my family, and the place met (almost) all our expectations. A new hotel (spring 2022) with a friendly staff, and a location which cannot be beaten. The only let down was a somewhat chaotic breakfast arrangements. Long queues from the elevator to the breakfast every morning - but it was compensated for by effective and friendly waiters - and the breakfast, although "typical American", was very good indeed. Also the breakfast room itself is not good. A big open space, very noisy, and with chairs and tables which doesn't actually fit each other - here is room for improvement. But again, the friendly staff and the tasty food compensated for this. All in all a very pleasant stay, and we will be happy to come back, especially if the management improves the breakfast room...

Moved here from another hotel which was not up to standard. Spotless clean, friendly staff, outdoor seating area for coffee just off Times Square. Special mention to Alberto and Hassan, the night staff, who went above and beyond their duty to salvage our trip. We even went back for breakfast when staying at another hotel. This is the perfect hotel to explore anYC
