My friend and I visited NYC in October and stayed at Element; we had thee best stay! The hotel was clean, our towels were changed each day, the selection of food for breakfast each day was fab and our room was just amazing! We stayed on the 40th floor and the view was just out of this world; we could see the Empire State Building! Honestly I could not rate this hotel high enough! The location is perfect, everywhere was so close including bus and subway stations. The staff were accommodating and friendly and more than happy to help us find certain landmarks and give directions. Lifts sometimes could take a little bit of time but it wasn’t really a problem, some people just like to moan for the sake of moaning! I hope to visit NYC again soon and I’ll definitely stay with Element again! :0)

Convenient location near Times Square

If I didn't know what I was looking for, it's easy to walk by this hotel and miss it. Upon check-in, the staff was courteous and friendly. I asked for a different type of room and she was able to accommodate me easily. She was informative by telling me about the free breakfast and cocktail hour each day. They have only 3 elevators for over 40 floors and the first night upon my arrival, one of the elevators was being used for service so they only had 2 working elevators. The elevators are also slow for the amount of people that it needs to move. When I arrived it was at the end of the free cocktail hour which meant everyone was trying to get back to their room; so your wait is about 5-10 minutes for an elevator at times. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The mini-kitchenette in the room was super convenient. I like that the refrigerator is not a mini-fridge but closer to the size of a normal fridge. The real freezer could come in handy too even though I didn't use it for this trip. The bathroom furnishings looked all new just like the furnishings in the room. However, you could tell that they didn't really update the wall paint as there were a lot of scuff marks everywhere and despite the newer looking furnishings, the scuffs on the walls made the room look a little odd. It's as if they remodeled just enough to make the furnishings new but they skipped the new paint job and decorations part. Without the new furnishing, the room looks

A Lot of Hotel for a Modest Price

Clean, stylish and friendly accomodations. Each room is surprisingly spacious (especially for a hotel in NYC) featuring a kitchenette including microwave, sink and refrigerator. All new. Great views from upper floors.

DO NOT recommend & Will NOT return

We just stayed at the Element over the weekend. We arrived to the hotel at around 9am to let Hotel know we had arrived but didn't expect to get into room till later. They allowed us to leave our luggage- helpful. When we arrived back to the hotel around 6:30pm, we were given a very small room on the 23rd floor in between two of the three elevators. The room was not very clean- I.e. Dust & bathrooms not well maintained. I said to my husband this must be an overflow room of which they never/rarely use. Called front desk who reported no other rooms free and they assign rooms as customers arrive. We were told rooms ending in 07 are bigger and we ended up with an 09. Shocked since we had arrived at hotel so early and let them know we had arrived. Room was very very very small. Two double beds to accommodate 2 adults, 2 children. Both beds pushed up against either side of wall. Very uncomfortable. Bed linens felt like layers of paper towels. No real blankets, just layers of sheets as covers. For the breakfast that others have made comments that they enjoy- our view is totally different- the eggs were not consumable, the bagels were clearly previously frozen, no pancakes, or bacon. There was not even water for that matter. Area very crowded and very unclean. All in all --totally unsatisfactory and recommend to skip the "free" breakfast. The lobby area is old, dirty, unattractive, and crowded. We waited a long time each and every time for one of two working elevators and each time the tiny elevators were crammed with other people. We left hotel Sat morning around 9am for the day, returning around 7pm. We found our room had not been cleaned. We called front desk who offered to clean but we were exhausted and kids already in pjs so we declined. When asked what can remedy this front desk offered some Starwood points which was meager. All in all we were underwhelmed with staff, the accommodations were unsatisfactory and uncomfortable and the "free" breakfast not worth it. We will never stay here again. We are sad to report these realities but think good for others to know.Of note -if booking through Starwood, they have nothing but good things to say about this property which is totally misleading.

Wonderful Hotel

We loved everything about this hotel. The views are amazing and rooms are spacious for manhattan. We really enjoyed the complementary breakfast, do not pass up their fresh NYC bagels. Great location just a couple blocks from time square. If you are driving in, there are two parking garages right next door. The drive in was easy. It's less than 5 minutes of NYC driving and almost a straight shot from the Lincoln tunnel. The staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. Every time that we would come back in,'we were warmly greeted. We were very happy with every aspect of this hotel and plan to return soon.
