Oozing with Art Deco chic, this well-priced hotel is just a short walk from the Empire State Building and Macy's department store. In warmer months, the rooftop terrace is a great place to view the Empire State Building. The hotel's attractive, blonde wood restaurant is on the New York Times' list of 'Good Dining Places in the Area'. They mix some great cocktails in the restaurant bar, too!

We stayed here 5th-11th july. Our room was teeny tiny and basic (as expected in NYC) but very clean and shower was great. We viewed it as a room we would only be in for sleep in so didn't need... Read more anything fancy - plenty more things to spend your $$$ on in NYC. Breakfast was fine, great given that it was included. Nice bagels and muffins. We never really used concierge services. He did get us a price for tickets to see Rocky on broadway - $199 each....got them at tkts for $75 each. Rooftop bar was a bit of a disappointment from what we had seen online, not open on a sunday (day we arrived) and i never enjoy a wine in a small plastic cup. ( you can get plastic wine glasses) It was pricey but we didn't mind too much. We did however quite enjoy sitting up there on our way home to our room each night. View might not be the best in NY as one reviewer suggested - however we really enjoyed sitting in the shadow of the empire at night and seeing what colour she was lit up as....which when we were there reflected the colours of the independence day and then each of the world cup finalists on the day they won their semi!! we would stay again! location is good and doormen and reception staff are lovely.

We stayed at Hotel Metro for 5 nights in February after booking through BA. We upgraded to a superior queen room which was on a higher floor away from the road noise and had been refurbished. It... Read more wasn't enormous but we were there to sightsee not sit in our room and it provided a very clean and comfortable base. Most hotels in New York don't include breakfast so this was definitely a bonus and you get used to the paper plates! We had low expectations but the bagels and muffins were incredible!! The location is superb with Macy's, the Empire State and the subway all under 5 mins walk. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again if we return to New York. Read less
We stayed here for 5 nights in July. And the jury is still out on this one. Booked as a BA holiday and having read the good reviews on tripadvisor we decided to risk it as all the other hotels were... Read more coming out at crazy prices. The location is great for sightseeing, around the corner from Empire State Building, so a handy location in midtown. You can walk loads of places. Not too far from the subway either to get uptown or into downtown - nearest one is on park avenue at east 33rd street - about a 3-4 minute walk. The area is a little tacky though and we prefer Greenwich village, SoHo where you can find smaller restaurants and cafés. The good about this hotel is they do offer you a free breakfast - although we ate out every day to get eggs. They also offer tea and coffee all day, although we still kept Starbucks in business too with our love of caramel macchiato! Our room was small - not too much of a problem as we were not planning to hang out there - but it was clean and the bathroom was ok too. Just a shower but I prefer this. The hair dryer provided would not dry anyone's hair that is longer than short so either bring your own or get a blow dry at the salon about 4 doors away from the hotel. I did. Read the safe instructions before trying to secure it - there is a red button you need to press and we managed to lock our stuff in there and needed help. The maintenance guy got in no worries - however this offers other concerns in my eyes! Avoid, avoid, avoid the roof top bar for a drink. We sat out one sunny afternoon and had 2 beers. No prices are not displayed although the list of beers are there and they were a staggering $18 + tip! The view is not that great. It is only the 12th floor after all. I would say go, take a photo and leave and go elsewhere. We did question the prices with the hotel and they said the roof top bar is part of the metro grill so nothing to do with them and they have told them to display prices but they have done nothing about it. There was also a rather large man sitting up there with his top off in the sunshine when we were there and nothing was said to him about putting his top back on. This is not a bar that is full of sunloungers for you to sunbathe so they should be stricter on dress code - ie tops on! If this isn't part of the hotel I can't mark the hotel down on this but just wanted tripadvisor readers to be aware! One last thing. Wifi was great in reception but was shocking in our room, especially after they changed the password one day! Yes, the hotel looks a little tired but it's good for a base. If there are some refurbed rooms - our room 601 wasn't - then perhaps ask for one of those... Would we return? Not to stay here as I think there are perhaps better, quieter neighbourhood areas... Would I recommend you to stay? Yes to beat a Empire State Building queue. A 2 minute walk to the front door at 7.30am for 8am opening is great! Read less
A few hundred yards from Macey's and a block away from the Empire State Building, Hotel Metro is centrally located for visitors to New York. It's very clean, very comfortable and our room at the back... Read more was surprisingly quiet. The breakfast was average, but free hot coffee and tea were available at all times at the back of the lobby. Finding a reasonable restaurant nearby was difficult. The hotel restaurant was good but expensive and the service very slow. There's a MacD around the corner as well as various bars - it's not the gastronomic centre of New York, so be prepared to walk.

We stayed here recently and overall really liked the hotel. The staff were always very friendly. The house keeping staff did an excellent job at cleaning the room each day. The breakfast was great... Read more for a free breakfast - we heard some people complaining about it - it's continental and it's free!!!! The location is great with a subway platform about a 2 minute walk from the hotel door and is on a really good route (Times Square is only 1 stop away). The only negatives are the room is very small (I've stayed in two other New York hotels). Our fridge didn't work - but to be honest we didn't tell anyone so can't complain. The view outside our room was of another side of a building which was dissapointing. The air con was VERY loud and we also could hear some sort of machine outside our window. But overall very good and the staff were lovely. Read less
