The Roosevelt Hotel New York City
- What's Included
Stayed here in mid November for a few days. It was FREEZING!If you're coming from JFK it's better to get the Airtrain and then use the LIRR to Penn Station - think it costs around $15 ish in total but it gets you there in the fastest way possible and without the hassle of having to swap trains on the tube. From Penn Station it's around a 10 minute walk. Easily done.Check in was swift, the girls behind the desk were lovely and chatty. The reception area also has unlimited free coffee throughout the day, always a bonus. Theres also an ATM, drinks machine and a tiny gym. Not bad at all.We were on the 11th floor though the view is nothing spectacular - what is spectacular is the ridiculous time it takes the elevator to climb 11 floors. Slowest one i've ever been in in my life! The rooms themselves are of average size, but comfortable for two people - coffee facilities, iron, TV (with actually some good channels on!), small bathroom but with decent shower. All very standard but clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable. The walls are thin and so if you're a light sleeper you can hear people coming and going, particularly because the rooms are so close together. The doors also tend to slam shut rather than close gently so early risers tend to wake you up as they leave.Breakfast was included which was downstairs just off reception - the standard offering was on display, eggs, sausages, cereal, pastries etc - the sausages in particular were very nice. Not the worst, not the best but not bad to start your day. The room is reasonably sized too so it's never too cramped.Overall a lovely stay and i'd have no hesitation returning to Heritage if I was in NYC again.A few extras:- You can store your bag(s) for $1 per bag - I'm surprised this is the first time I've come across a charge but its perfectly acceptable, particularly because its done properly in a locked room and with a ticket system so you're bag is secure.- I didn't try the Chinese takeaway next door but the '2Bros' at the end of the street has excellent pizza when you roll in after a few drinks.- The Flat Iron building is literally around the corner - turn right out of the hotel and right at the end of the street and you can't miss it.- You can walk to either end of Manhattan in around 45-60 minutes. - if you can arrange it it's worth doing the day trip to Washington DC - takes around 3-4hrs each way on a coach but the tour guide is full of info and DC itself is a gem. Its served as a taster but It's so worth it and it'll make you want to return.
So, we stayed at this hotel last week (5 nights) 13 - 18 Nov 17. We were pleasantly surprised after reading some previous reviews that it is very nice. It is quite old but modernized. Our room on the 10th floor had a very comfortable king size bed, an adequate bathroom and a wardrobe and dresser. When I noticed after a day that the fridge wasn't working a very efficient maintenance man immediately replaced it with a new one. Breakfast was OK, the price was right! (included). I must say that the staff are all wonderful, particularly the young lady working the evening shift every night of our stay. she had the answer for every question.The only small thing I could mention is that the elevators (2) are quite slow but that is understandable considering their age.The price we paid was very competitive even much lower that neighboring properties (Holiday Inn Express). And, the hotel is well located both to the metro and lots of restaurants. All in all a very nice central location for a city vivit.
It's a good budget hotel in a great location.The room was quiet enough even if somewhat small and without closet.Staff is kind but could improve, continental breakfast plentiful and good.It could get crowded in some instances (i.e. NYC Marathon), but it's certainly a great option in the City.
This is an older hotel with modest updates. It's in a great location just steps away from Flatiron, close to eateries, a park, and the subway. The lobby is modest but clean and comfortable. Two small elevators are available. Ice is available just outside the elevators. There a large room where the continental breakfast is served. We ate there one morning. The offerings were varied enough that most folks could find something they liked.My sister and I chose a room with 2 twin beds. When you walk into the room, there's a small refrigerator, safe, and coffee pot to the left. There was a closet with an ironing board and iron. We had enough room at the end of one of the beds to use it. The bathroom was good size with sink, toilet, and tub with shower. There was plenty of hot water with a good spray. We had a window that looked out to the other side of the hotel. There was a dresser with I believe 4 nice size drawers. The television was mounted. The picture quality was good with a fair number of channels to choose from. The mattresses were quite comfortable. There were enough pillows and blanket coverings for comfort. The pillows were full and comfortable. Each day our room was cleaned well, beds made, and fresh towels left. The staff was courteous and helpful. We stored our luggage without cost while awaiting our room to be prepared. We paid $1/bag for storage after checkout. The price of the room was affordable by NYC standards. We'll definitely consider staying here again.
Rooms are small, old and dark. Hotel profits from a great location, half a block away from Madison Square Park.Breakfast was a very pleasant surprise, but overall I wouldn't recommend this for other reason than the one I had, was the last decent priced hotel in a very crowded week.
