“Best Manhattan hotel for its price and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2012 via mobile

I've stayed here several times, and will continue to come back. On my last visit the check-in agent at the counter upgraded us to the 32nd floor (highest floor for regular rooms before the penthouse/suite levels) for free, and went out of his way to get us every discount he could, resulting in essentially a free night's stay. Our bill was only about 75% of what we had planned on.

The location can't be beat, we walked absolutely everywhere, thus hotel is very central to most attractions on Manhattan. The rooms are small, but that is to be expected in New York. Be sure to call ahead and reserve a room with a view of the Empire State Building!

I loved mostly everything about this hotel. The location is about as good as it gets and having the Tik Tok Diner attached is a major plus! Most subway lines are within a block walk from the hotel too. Also, security asks to see your room key and that is a major plus! And FYI, there is a great pizza place, a Wendy's, BK and a McDonald's within a block if your looking for cheap food right there. We got a full size bed that nearly took up our entire room. My feet hung off the end of the bed and was probably the worst nights sleep I'd ever had on any vacation. The bathroom was a joke. It reminded me of a rest stop bathroom with a tub in it. Next time I'll just pay the extra $50 per night and stay somewhere better. The fact that the room I got wasn't even an option on their website makes me feel as if I was mislead!!! I was expecting a Metro room since it seems the most basic of rooms listed but I got a full size bed. Again, will not stay here again due to being duped!

Room Tip: Get a suite or a view room because I thought I was getting a metro room and I got a full size bed an...

We stayed here for four nights. The room was very small but clean (the king bed took up most of the room). Our room had been refurbished but the bathroom had not. We left early every morning and usually didn't get back until around 10 or 11 at night. After sightseeing all day and trying to wash up before bed, it seemed as though they turned off the hot water each night--maybe it just took so long for the hot water to come out that it made us think they turned it off! We never had an issue with the hot water in the mornings, just at night. Nevertheless, this hotel was conveniently located and we just needed a place to sleep, so would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west (back) side of the hotel have no interesting view. Have to ask for a room on the...

Arrived on Saturday afternoon to hot sunshine. We had upgraded our room so were on the 35th floor with fantastic views of New York. The room was cosy but clean and the bed comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. A ten minute walk up to Times Square and just across the road from Madison Square Garden. Lucy's bar across the traffic lights is a must at Happy Hour between 4-7pm. You can visit the Statue of Liberty but cannot go inside at the moment as refurbishment is going on. Trips not to be missed are the ferry around Manhattan, Ground Zero and the bus tour.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the 35th floor for $10 per night per room. One couple had a view of the Empire State and...

Had a very nice stay at this hotel. Were able to change rooms the 2nd of our 5 nights stay - and ended up at a corner suite overlooking town. Great work by the front desk lady. (the person who gave us the first room, looked like she have had better days....)
Had breakfast at 39th floor, its standard - nothing special. But with a nice view.
Location is good, short walk to Times Square, and Madison Square Garden is across the street.
Can recommend this hotel to anyone.

My only bad experience is with the driver assistance thing offered. Its quite a lot more expencive than the yellow cabs. Yes, you know you'll get a car and all that but....
Did pay some extra supposedly for toll, but I did not see any toll on the weird roads the driver took to JFK. Got screwed??? Would not recommend that service - but thats not a part of the hotels.

The New Yorker is a very good hotel. Great location just beside Madisson Square Gardens, Penn Station (Subway) and Empire State Building. 10 minutes will walk you to Times Square. Rooms clean 2 double beds and bathroom. We were on the 25th floor didn't have much of a view but we weren't there to look out the bedroom window so that didn't bother us - too many sights to see and shops to go to!!!
