Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

This is a great place to stay before or after a cruise, it is an easy walk to the cruise terminal which is slightly down hill and up hill to Time Square and the theatre area. The staff was fantastic and recommended many good places to eat that are close by, I am a Platinum Member of IHG and this was one of the best IHG properties my wife and I have stayed at. The hotel is clean and the rooms are updated and clean. It is the standard express breakfast which had a nice variety of items to choose from. There is a sitting area outside that I enjoyed using for y morning cup of coffee and the Wifi worked very well in that area along with the inside the hotel. There are only two elevators so do not be in hurry to go up or down if the hotel is full.

Room Tip: If the elevator is busy it is an easy walk down the stairs and exits at the outside sitting area.

The hotel is value for money option in NYC. It offered free breakfast and adequate in room facilities. The housekeeping could definitely be improved and the checkin experience could be improved as well. I was provided keys to a room which was already occupied.

I stayed here for 7 nights with my daughter who is 18, we were allocated a room with a King Size bed which was fine as the bed was absolutely huge also very comfortable with lovely fluffy pillows. I was surprised at the size of the room as I'd heard that rooms in New York were on the small size. We had a good sized wardrobe, but only 6 hangers, a desk, flat screen TV, fridge and a Keurig coffee maker. The bed was made daily but I had to leave a note for housekeeping to leave us more coffee and I'm pretty sure that although they emptied the bins daily they didn't actually hoover the carpet. Lovely big shower in the bathroom with good water pressure, nice white fluffy towels but only a small area around the sink to put our toiletries so we ended up leaving them in our washbags.
A buffet breakfast was include in our room rate and the food was basic but acceptable with a choice of a cooked meal as well as cereal and toast, muffin or bagel and even freshly made pancakes. The coffee/tea section was available 24/7 which was useful when the coffee in our room wasn't replaced. The breakfast area is small and seats are at a premium at least 3 out of the 7 days we were there we had to grab our breakfast and take it outside to the patio area to eat. The weather while we were there was around 25-30 degrees so eating outside wasn't much of a problem but I wouldn't fancy having to do that any later in the year.
Location wise the hotel is opposite a Salvation Army hostel which I was a little apprehensive about but which was in fact absolutely fine. It's about a 20 minute walk to Times Square and the nearest subway station and being in Hell's Kitchen there are plenty of places around to eat. Eating in New York we found was very expensive but the fact that the room had a fridge meant that we could buy supplies from the grocery stores, keep them in there and then eat in our room. The hotel had no problem with guests bringing back food and eating it either in their room or in the hotels breakfast area.
Staff in the hotel from reception to housekeeping were all very pleasant and friendly. The receptionist helped organise our airport transfer and also arranged for our luggage to be stored until we were ready to depart for the airport.
The hotel has vending machines and ice machines on every other floor and a limited range of drinks and snacks can be purchased from reception.
If you are looking for a hotel with a view then this is not it, however for the price I paid it was really good value for money and in a good location, if I had wanted luxury I would probably of had to pay 3 times the price.

This hotel is ok, reasonably clean and a fair choice at breakfast . Bed was comfortable but the bedding had small holes in it. We arrived at 10.00 pm after a long flight and could really have done with out the chaotic reception area. Breakfast is ok but again chaotic and self served on plastic plates. The hotel is close to penn station and time square. However, it was difficult to find at night and would not advice lone individuals to walk round this area at night. Staff were friendly and third to help but there systems were not up to the job hence the delays in check in. Also the staff were using the only lifts to move stuff meaning a long Que. for visitors for lifts.

Room Tip: the building is very tall and slim so only 4 rooms per floor, watch out of you have mobility problem...

We stayed for one night and were very happy with the hotel - it had everything we needed. I found the location to be very good - an easy walk to mid-town and the theater district, close to good restaurants (9th Ave has a great variety). I'm not sure why some reviewers have found the area around the hotel to be a problem - it felt very safe to us, even at night. The room was clean, comfortable and for the most part quiet, although there was a fair amount of noise from the hallway in the morning as people were leaving and the rooms were being cleaned. As other reviews have mentioned, the breakfast area gets quite busy, but the food was good and fresh and they kept it well stocked. The staff were helpful and friendly. I think the value for the price is excellent and would definitely stay here again - especially if you're looking for an affordable room with two beds, which can be hard to find in this city, this hotel is a great choice.
