My wife and I spent 5 days in NYC in The Premier on our one year anniversary/honeymoon (we'd had to postpone the honeymoon). Our intention had been to get somewhat close to Times Square and be somewhat pampered, instead we were centrally located and generally disappointed.
The Premier is a lamprey add-on to another hotel (The Millennium), skinny and tall (only 7'ish rooms a floor). They offer a location that's only half a block away from the center of Times Square and above a certain floor you do have a view of the big apple...though most of the view is of the street and accompanying buildings. The room was relatively small (250 sq ft) with a king bed and a bathroom which had a tub.
However, the hotel is just worn down or not kept up well. The wiring of the room is odd, with all lights but the bathroom (and most of the power in the outlets) controlled by a single switch. The room we stayed in had severe signs of misuse and abuse that hadn't been addressed: cigar hole in the carpet, tub drain didn't work (rendering the tub useless), mildew on the counter, crayon on the walls, stripped appliance locations, every single light fixture was crooked or jutting out from the wall, and obviously unprofessionally repaired sink fixtures, non-existent bathroom vent fans, etc. Even the towels, robes, and toiletry items provided were sad/worn or frayed.
Services were provided by a nearby hotel and not this hotel itself, and such simple things such as appliances were add-ons (want a fridge...$40, want ice? call housekeeping). We didn't avail ourselves of the breakfast.
All in all, I was very disappointed in the experience, the staff, and the facilities. However, it *was* close to Times Square, and the bed was ok...but I don't recommend you stay here if you value quality.
