New Yorker Hotel
- What's Included
Great location, very small room and bathroom. With two luggages inside the room, can hardly walk. And there's a incidental charge upon check in. Higher floors has better views. You can hear siren the whole night maybe it's near some hospital or fire station? Staffs were friendly and it's a great experience haha... never stayed in such small hotel before and so antique feel.
Excellent stay in a great hotel.Check in was quick and efficient and we were in our room within 20 minutes (no wait for the elevators - as experienced by some). Room was small - as expected, but spotlessly clean and warm. Bathroom again small but clean.All the staff we encountered from check in, concierge, housekeeping and security were cheerful, friendly and helpful.Hotel in a very central location, easy to walk to all major attractions and with a subway entrance on both corners what more could you want.
Me and my girlfriend stayed here for the weekend and it was just a bad experience. I really don't ask for much in a hotel, I'm very low maintenance and easy to please, so when I say this place sucked take my word for it. When checking in, we waited about 20 minutes for a receptionist. We were charged an extra $30.00 per day for hotel amenities ( international calling/gym...which we didn't use once), and then given the wrong room. After calling we got moved to the right room, which was insanely small. The room was bare with nothing but a tiny t.v, the bathroom was even a disappointment. In the shower it took fifteen minutes of messing with the knobs to get it to a bare-able temperature, then fluctuated from freezing to scalding the entire duration. If I had to find something positive about this place, I can only think of the elevators being fast. Do yourself a favor and find a different hotel, save yourself from the same experience.
Upon arrival we were quickly & efficiently checked in. As we were in New York for my 30th birthday we had a free room upgrade to a room with a view & vouchers for a complimentary breakfast at the tick tock diner. Before arrival I was advised of a £45 per night incidental charge but this was just held on the credit card, not taken, what wasn't expected was the non refundable $29 + taxes per night service fee, which for WiFi that dropped frequently & a gym we didn't have time to use we thought this was quite steep.Our room (2435) was a corner room on the 24th floor, it was a good size with a fantastic view of the Empire State building & Madison Square Gardens to the right. The room was clean & the bed was comfortable, the curtains are blackouts & keep the room really dark in the mornings until you're ready to get up. What really let the room down was the bathroom! Paint was coming off the tiles, the built in wall soap dish looked mouldy, the bath looked grimey (so we only had showers while there) and the light switch looked like it hadn't been wiped in a long time! On a positive note, the shower always had good water pressure & came through hot and we had fresh towels & toiletries daily. I would of brought to the hotels attention that we weren't happy with the bathroom but with the fantastic views we had I thought we might be moved rooms & then look at a wall for a view!The staff were always very friendly & helpful and I liked the extra security of a member of staff checking people had keys before being allowed to the elevators, so non-guests couldn't get to the floors.The location of this hotel is excellent! Madison Square Gardens near enough on your doorstep, the Empire State building, Time Square & Macys all in very close proximity. Only cost us $20 (inc tip) for a taxi downtown to the 911 museum & most the time there's a taxi waiting outside the hotel to take you where you want to go.Nearby places to eat that we enjoyed were Carraghers on 39th Street & Jack Doyles on 35th... similar offerings to each other but close to the hotel after a full on day of sightseeing. We had breakfast at the tick tock diner twice, my husband loved it, me not so much but I'm a full english kind of girl, not pancakes & syrup. Oh & did I mention there's a McDonald's opposite the hotel if all else fails!Overall we had an enjoyable stay at The New Yorker hotel and was an ideal base for a busy sightseeing break. If I was staying any longer than a few days I think we would try elsewhere but once refurbishment is complete here I would reconsider.
room was extremely small - shower was not updated - beds were way to small - I hung off the mattress - top 1/2 of the room was 72 degrees while bottom half of the room was freezing - just wasn't comfortable for the price felt more like a cardboard box then a room.
