Have stayed here multiple times in last few years. Manager and staff know how to treat people well. Hotel is two blocks from subway convenient to Manhattan. This time, they seriously improved their former mediocre breakfast items and increased space to avoid breakfast time traffic jams. A good move. Will return again next trip.

The hotel was decent for the NY price. The best part is that it is right across the street from the subway. Very Convenient! The hotel itself is as expected for the price, but it is livable for a short stay. It was clean and had a complimentary continental breakfast. I'd stay here again.

... kumar was probably the most accommodating, friendly, and helpful hotel employee I've come across so far, which says a lot because I travel and stay overnight in many hotels on a regular basis for my job. Definitely dedicated to helping others..I was shocked with how willing he was to actually work hard while on the job...very motivating. Thanks Kumar,...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our 10 day visit to NYC. Although the hotel is fine, I am not a great fan of papers plates and this was what was on offer for us for breakfast. Everything was paper, the plates, cups, plastic spoons, forks etc. I wouldn't have thought it would have been that...

The hotel is conveniently less then 100 yards from the subway which goes into the heart of New York, travel to Bryant Park and you will be at the bottom of Times Square next to the Library, it makes life so much easier. The team at the hotel are very pleasant and helpful, breakfast area is rushed and crowded but...

The Hotel is conveniently located just a flock or two from the F train station: you can be in Times Square in 15 minutes. On the other hand, there's nothing around the hotel, and if you like walking the first restaurant is 20 minutes away. Breakfast room far too small, rooms are acceptable.

Convenient to subway station and provided easy access to all of New York City. as first time visitor to New York City, the Best Western Plaza was a real deal, financially and location. Would stay there again on next visit to New York City.

We were impressed by the friendly, efficient service of the staff, the overall cleanliness, room size and breakfast offered by the hotel. The area doesn't look pretty, but it is safe and relatively quiet, and only a short walk to the nearest subway or bus station. It's ideal as a base from which to explore Manhattan, Brooklyn etc and is...

I have stayed there a few times and have recommended it to my famliy. Hotel is nice and clean. Train station to Manhattan is 4 minute walk away. Train ride into heart of Manhattan is about 12 minutes. Great place for those that want to be close to Manhattan but also want to be budget conscious. Rooms are comfy and...

We looked at staying in Manhattan but prices were cheaper here and the hotel is 3 mins away from the 21st Metro Station that gets you into Manhattan in minutes. The area is semi commercial so not the prettiest but the hotel is clean, beds were comfortable and offered free wifi (patchy in places) and continental breakfast which can get...
