Better location impossible. Located between Grand Central Station and the Chrysler Building. You can find good deals in August or during low tourist season but it is still quite expensive. In August we paid a little less than 200 € a night for 2 adults and 2 children. The hotel is a bit old so don´t expect modern furniture or fashionable decoration.
This is a spectacular hotel in the heart of Manhattan, near Fifth Avenue, Central Park and Times Square. Modern decor, design, and meticulous attention to detail. A safe choice if you can find a good price.
We had a small double room with a bed that was too small for my partner and I to fit in but we told reception and they changed our room without any problem. Needs remodeling. The bathrooms are at least 50 years old but are clean. They stored our bags for us for no charge. The location in Manhattan is very good. You can walk everywhere and you can catch the subway right at the hotel. The staff treated us very well. We asked for plans and typical places to eat and they gave us great suggestions. If we return, we would stay here again because it was a clean hotel with a bed to sleep in.
This is a more reasonable hotel than what is usually offered in NYC. Affordable rates, and in our case, great rooms (although we saw some rooms while they were being cleaned they weren't as nice). Two queen size beds (135 centimeters). No extra services were provided, not even a cafeteria. Even though there's a Europa Café, Starbucks and Bagel & Beans that guarantees you breakfast. The location was very good. It was a couple of blocks from Times Square and Broadway theater. Easy access to the metro, which was within 100 meters.
My name is Noel, and I want to describe my experience in this great hotel in New York. We went on our honeymoon in October 2008, and the truth is that it was difficult for us to decide on a hotel in New York, but in the end we made a good decision. It is a more or less centrally located hotel, and you can relax because you know, such as the Hotel Pennsylvania which is located directly across from Madison Square Garden, it was a place so noisy you can hardly sleep. It is a gorgeous hotel, and the room is spacious with a mini bar, an excellent bathroom, TV, safe, iron and ironing room, bathrobe, hair dryer, and desk. There is a floor with computers with internet access and best of all a Spanish-speaking staff. Something important was that breakfast was included, which is not common in New York. It was a continental breakfast with coffee, (not like coffee in Spain, it´s quite watery and you need to drink 20 for anything to happen), buttered toast, muffins, juice, fruit, etc.. In short, we left with a good impression, we really liked it. I have no doubts that this hotel is great, especially for a honeymoon. New York is an amazing experience every time.
We spent six nights in this great hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a nice girl at reception who explained to us what we wanted to know about things such as tours, shows and getting around the city. We agreed on a tour that day (New York Contrasts Kept Secret). The room was comfortable and functional. The breakfasts were great. The location of the hotel was absolutely unbeatable. It was a few steps from the Empire State Building and near the subway stop. We will repeat the experience without hesitation ...
The first thing I have to say is that the hotel chain "Jolly" was purchased by the Spanish hotel chain "Nh hotels". Whoever goes to a Nh knows what to expect: city hotels with excellent service, good decoration and not too expensive prices. This was the main reason why we decided on the Jolly Hotel Madison Towers. We wanted to experience five days living in downtown Manhattan and enjoying the city without having to take a subway or a taxi. We wanted to explore the city on foot and at night and to be able to rest in a good room. Well, the curious thing is that it's half hotel Jolly (floors 1 through 14) and half Nh (from the 15 floor), and that they have not yet finished the work to suit the image of Nh hotels. The first night we were on the 11th floor. The hotel looked like it was 70 years old. It was spacious but old and uncomfortable. The next day we went to talk to the staff, and attended to the Office Manager, "Vera", a pro who was on top of the situation and he understood perfectly that we had booked an Nh with everything that that incurs and that our room did not live up to the expectations of the money we were going to pay. For a bit more we changed to the 16th floor, another world. This was as expected if NH. A hotel like! 100% recommend the hotel (but, remember, from the 15th floor). From our window we could see the Empire State Building. Of course we booked through minube.
The Milford hotel is an authentic Babel Tower. There are a ton of floors and rooms and it hosts all kinds of tourists. Its unbeatable location right next to Times Square or the Puerta del Sol of New York. It was a bit outdated before so it has been renovated and the new rooms are great for the $100 price of a double per night. There are no services offered for free and wireless costs $ 19 per day but this isn´t a problem in New York because there are so many local bars and cafes that have free wifi. Opposite the hotel you have a site where all the Spanish visitors go for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The hotel was originally called the Milford Plaza Hotel.
The Plaza Hotel is not just a hotel, it's a real institution. At the bottom of Central Park, this is a great place and, if you're lucky, you'll find one of the legendary singers in the lobby. It's also famous for having been the setting of the movie Home Alone 2.
It had very good service, spacious rooms (for NY), was located in Soho and probably one of the best options in the area. It has a very active bar-life at night and excellent cocktails. It is close to all the shopping area of Soho. Breakfast in the room can be huge (and not cheap, of course ...).
This hotel has 411 spacious guest rooms and suites equipped with wireless high-speed Internet, HD 42" flat screen TV with cable, iHome Sound System Station Clock, cordless telephones with private voicemail, speakerphone and data ports, place for a laptop, and a Minibar offering a selection of gourmet and organic options. Check-in at 3:00 pm and Check-out by 12:00 pm.
This hotel is one of the best options if you go to New York and if no one wants to spend a fortune on a hotel without sacrificing quality. The first, and most important I think, is that it´s in the heart of Manhattan. It is one block from the Empire State Building, four from Rockefeller Center, and just over a 5 minutes walk from Times Square, 10 minutes from Madison Square Garden, and practically glued to Fifth Avenue on one side and on the other to the store Macys, a 15-20 minute walk from Central Park ... In short, it´s near lots of sites to be visited in New York and in the city center. Regarding services: rooms have large beds, a large closet, a bathroom with shower, a hairdryer and soap. It also has a safe, large TV, and alarm clock ... Come on, an entire room with typical standard services. Ahh! It also has a cooler and glasses ... Although it is likely that any of you touch even if you share a bed. Breakfast is included in the price, but not a big variety, though it was not bad. It consists of donuts, bagels, toast, plus the odd bun, fruit, cereal, boiled eggs, coffee, tea, juices and not much else. The restaurant which does breakfast, is a grill restaurant during the day, where they give you a 15% discount if you are a guest. The food is pretty good but there is not much choice. On the opposite side there is an Irish bar that also gives guests a 12% discount. In the lobby there is a computer with internet access and free coffee and tea also. And on all floors there is a coffee or soda machine. The hotel is fairly comprehensive, though not the most beautiful or luxurious. It is clean and and with a pretty good and effective service. But it may be a little old. But your location is compensated. Unbeatable for that value. Really. It did not disappoint. Per person per night in a double room with breakfast, about 40-45 euros. They have shuttles, which are vans that take you and bring you to the airport. It is very profitable if you are several. For 5 persons, about 12 euros per person to Newark Airport.
This is a charming hotel, visited by people from all over the world, young, and it exudes a fantastic New York vibe :) There are concerts and performances, there's a lively pub in the hotel, internet room, and it's decorated with pop artists' works, and American expressionism ... All at a reasonable price.
I was in this hotel last year during my honeymoon. It was an average hotel with a super big bed and a tiny room. We were thinking of booking a more expensive hotel but in the end it was worth sticking with this one because it was fine.
On my last visit to Manhattan I got a studio apartment which was really well located on 57th Street and Park Avenue, in the East. It was a real find, found through a mutual friend with a real estate agent in the area. It was very modern and well equipped and consisted of a bedroom with double bed and two more beds in the room, with a splendid view of Manhattan as seen in the photos below. The truly fantastic thing was the price: U $ s 240 per day. Incredibly, it was also before Christmas, when all Manhattan hotels are full and the prices are higher than usual - a double room in a three-star hotel costs $ 400. I had a fantastic time and it was a different experience, as if we lived in Manhattan, going shopping for food in the surrounding shops and delis, ete.
This is the perfect location for this Boutique Hotel with themed rooms relating to books - a room with Norman literature, a room with children's stories, etc. Excellent service, with a terrace on the 14th floor with great views and a relaxation area on the 1st floor with snacks (cheese, crackers, juices ...) included in the room rate. Free Wifi. Facing a Starbucks ...
The Waldorf Astoria Hotel is a luxury landmark, which stands as one of the best in Manhattan, with quality and international recognition like the Plaza Hotel or The Pierre. It's a traditional hotel that has all the amenities, with respect to the standards of luxury, comfort and the mark of world famous chains like Sheraton.
Housing in New York can often be tricky: too far, too expensive, too noisy ... there are a lot of potential problems with hotels! Room Mate Grace, however, is in an absolutely ideal location, just steps from Times Square (less than 5 minutes' walk away), in the heart of the city. The rooms, though on the small side, are well-insulated and comfortable. The hotel also has a small swimming pool, sauna and gym. The price is reasonable, despite all these amenities.
My opinion about the East Village B & B is not entirely favorable because of a problem we had on the first night. We booked online and paid the total price for our planned 4 nights by money order. A couple of days before leaving for New York, we received a message on the answering machine saying that they had made an error and booked out our room. When we called to clarify the issue they kept our money but offered no solution, and when we expressed our anger, they shouted at us and we finally got to talk to the manager, who was kinder than the other staff.
She arranged for us to stay in a friend's apartment for the same price, but the apartment had nothing to do with the East Village B & B, and was not as well-located or half as nice as the photos we'd seen. Despite this poor treatment, I have to say that the place itself is, objectively, fine. It's nice, clean and central, and the immediate neighborhood (East Village) is great. They have 3 rooms in total, two doubles and a single, and rent them for about 130 dollars a day. The bathrooms - there are two - are shared but everything is very new and clean.
This hotel has a great location and is excellent value for money. Virtually all staff speak Spanish. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bathrooms are old, but they work perfectly and are spotless. Despite its central location, you do not hear the noise of the city. I was on the 5th floor. The beds are very comfortable and large. Opposite, there is a place that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in a buffet style, it's gorgeous. Highly recommended for a no frills stay.
