- What's Included
What I liked about this hotel was the value for money, great tasting food, the 40th floor roof top views were amazing and it is located very near Time Square. (3 to 5 minute walk) Plus, although I didn't visit it, the gym looked very nice.On the other hand, the hotel is tall, but has a small floor size so reception and the dining area are quite cramped. Also you have to wait a long time for the lift in the morning and evening. Plus, although I said it was in a good location near to Time Square, the street it is on is a little bit dodgy so would recommend families with young children be accompanied around it.I would recommend this hotel for couples, business and solo trips. Rating 3/5 stars.
We travelled from Washington DC by coach and stayed 3 days in this hotel. Once we arrived, we had no trouble in finding the hotel in the heart of the busy garment district. Check In was speedy and informative. We had originally hoped to have rooms on the higher floors but as we wanted to freshen up and leave our luggage and get out and explore straight away, we took the rooms that were ready, which were on the 6th floor. If you can, do go higher as it's quieter. 'The City Never Sleeps!' I did wake in the early hours to the sound of the refuse trucks clearing away all the garbage from this busy area. My husband slept through it but not me. So take this as a tip. Our Son, his wife and two children were on the same floor but to the back of the hotel in a family room. Not a hotel with great views but it was a base for us as a family. Although the rooms are quite compact, they have everything you need for your stay. Well equipped. It was very clean, comfortable and good value for money. Although we had just booked for rooms with breakfast, there was an evening complimentary buffet, with complimentary, wine, beer and soft drinks. The restaurant area is quite small, the advantage of being on the lower floor did compensate as we didn't wait for the lifts which could get quite busy, we used the stairs, therefore ensuring we always got a place in the restaurant without queuing. There is also a roof terrace, small but good views of the skyscrapers around. The hotel is in a great location just around the corner from Time Square, Grand Central Station. 0.2km/0.1ml from Port Authority Bus Terminal. Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum is just 0.3 km/0.2ml away. Lots to see and do on the hotel doorstep. Staff were very pleasant and helpful we had a pleasant stay and the hotel was good value for money. Which is exactly what we wanted. Would stay again.
Pros+Location+Complimentary breakfast+Free WiFi with pretty good speed+Complimentary happy hour drinks (beer, wine,sodas) and snacks in the hotel lounge+Complimentary tea and coffee 24/7 in the lounge+Adequately equipped gym + Mini kitchen in the roomsCons-The elevators (!!!); up to 15min of waiting during peak hours (like during busiest breakfast time from 8-10 a.m)-No vegetables and just a few fruits (namely bananas) in the breakfast-Plastic forks knives plates in the breakfastWould stay again. The elevator problem was the biggest downsider by far.
good experience. ....main takeaway: extraordinarily friendly staff! ....also good location, above average room size for nyc and nice amenities. ... elevators often required waiting and breakfast was a bit of a madhouse. ...but nothing that couldn't be dealt with
I found the Element Hotel to be in a great location for access to Time Square and many of the main attractions of New York. The breakfast included in the cost of the room was basic but sufficient. The staff on the desk were pleasant and I had no issue with lift availability. I found the room that I had to be well appointed and pleasant and the free wifi was useful for communication. I would recommend the hotel as well appointed , central to New York and well priced compared to many others in the area.
