The lobby is beautiful and the location is great. This is honestly the first time I’ve complained about any NYC hotel that I have stayed at. Then front desk charged my card 3 times for a security deposit. That is 600 held up pending for days now. They were less than sympathetic about it and said that it is my banks problem if it doesn’t get refunded quickly. I spoke to my bank right after it happened and it just is not true. The gentleman was very rude. The rooms are so close together and loud throughout the night with people constantly slamming doors. The door also doesn’t shut all the way so there is this bright beam of light. The elevators are insanely small so everyone feels strange going on together due to covid. It’s just not a great place. You should choose another hotel! Wish I did.

I came to NYC for 10 nights. I booked months in advance The Gallivant Hotel Times Square. I requested to have a mini-fridge in the room and I received a written confirmation for that. When I checked in the employee at the reception told me the room does not have a mini-fridge and he showed no evidence of willing to solve the problem even que I showed him the written confirmation. Also, he asked me for my credit card and blocked the amount of almost $1500 for the total stay. No hotel does that. On the second day, we came back to the hotel at 4pm and the room was not made. I called the reception and told me they were going to swnd someone. I waited half hour and nobody showed up. I went to the reception in person to see what's going on. I was told that there is only one person doing housekeeping and the front desk clerk couldn't find the cleaning lady. Additionally, all enployees show no interest on providing a good customer service. I see no smiles, no attitude. They are the worst. This is today and we have 8 more days before leasing. I regret from making a reservation at The Gallivant Hotel Times Square. This is worst hotel I've been to in the U.S. I recommend travellers not chosing this hotel. It's terrible!

The lights in the shower was flickering like it’s a party. The electricity near the bed did not work (as well as the room phone, of course). I manually connected the phone to a working power and was never able to get to the room service. Finally, when you check out, you can put your staff in the luggage room only at 11. So if you checked out before 11 they expect you to leave your staff in the room till 11, and then to come back at 11 to move them to the luggage room.

It was my last 3 nights in New York including a very late arrival for the first night. All what I looked for was a hotel located at a convenient location on a budget. The Gallivant was just that. Front Desk Staff was very welcoming and efficient during the checking process. My room at the ninth floor was spacious enough for a comfortable stay. Complementary tea/coffee, good quality toiletries and adequate towels were available. Complementary internet was very good, and the large flat screen TV had good choice of news and entertainment channels. This hotel is all about location and convenience. Time square is just 100m. Broadway, Restaurant Row, Gift Stores, Restaurants, and shops all within walking distance. Subway station on the 50th Street was 5 minutes on foot. I did all my traveling from here using subway or the city buses except for onward and return journeys to the airport. Staff of the hotel were very helpful and welcoming. I observed them to be well experienced in the hotel industry. My stay at the Gallivant was very comfortable and pleasant experience.
