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!

TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We'd picked this hotel for the location, near the Empire State Building, Macys, Times Square, and the subway. When we arrived, we were told we'd been upgraded to a family suite, which was a nice... Read more surprise. We had two bedrooms, two TVs, loads of storage space, and a bath in the bathroom, instead of just a shower. The room was on the 3rd floor, overlooking the main street, but didn't seem that noisy. The free continental breakfast was a nice touch, though it was hard to get a seat sometimes. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but drank at the bar a few times after a hard days sightseeing. The rooftop bar wasn't open when we were there, but you could still take your drinks up there and enjoy the view. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Next time we go to NYC definitely we'll stay there again. Read less
On our recent trip to New York City, I was looking for a nice place to stay in midtown Manhattan. I chose the Hotel Metro because of its location and a change from the big chain hotels. We upgraded... Read more our room for $20 a night and had a very quiet room on the 12th floor. The room was very comfortable, however the bathroom was on the small side, but had a very nice shower. We stayed 4 nights over the weekend from Thursday to Monday. The hotel seems to be very popular with Europeans. There's a nice breakfast room that provided a nice continental breakfast. There's also a restaurant within the hotel, the Metro Grill that served reasonably priced, very good food. We ate there a couple of times and stopped back at the bar for a drink after a day of sightseeing to unwind. The bartenders were very friendly and we especially enjoyed chatting with Erica, a transplant from Florida, looking forward to her first winter in the city. There's a nice terrace on the Penthouse floor with an incredible view of The Empire State Building. The bar there is only open in the summer, but it's accessible year round. Based on hotel prices, I would say this is about average and fairly good value. As in all big cities, you have to adjust your mindset for "sticker shock" for lodging. Read less
Great midtown location a few blocks south of Times Square and the theater district and a few blocks north of Madison Sq. Garden and Chelsea. Many Korean restaurants (regular and Bar-B-Q) on the... Read more block. Reasonable price for a last minute reservation (less than $200). Hotel was clean and spacious with some character. We were upgraded at no additional cost to a deluxe king room from our original reservation for a small double room. Included continental breakfast was good enough (bagels, pastries, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice, etc.) Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. On street parking in this area of NYC is difficult ($3.50 per hour, except Sunday) but could park in a parking garage next door for only $27 per night. On the third floor there was some noise from one the restaurants below but it was not a problem later in the evening. Bathroom shower was spacious but only had an old style shower head (no hand held) and not much counter space around the sink. Read less
We stayed in New York for a week in early October to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. When we checked in we were pleased to be upgraded from a premier queen to premier king room on the 12th floor... Read more . We also found a bottle of champagne and birthday card in our room. The hotel is in a great location in Midtown, close to the Empire State Building. The staff were friendly and helpful and the concierge service was a bonus. They will arrange all sorts of services on your behalf. At the end of the day you are visiting a big city, so should expect some noise, but you can always ask for a room at the rear or use earplugs.

Although we were offered an upgraded room, it was quite small, and it greeted us with a bad smell of frying food that wafted frequently during our stay. The tiny bathroom is well appointed... Read more . Housekeeping service was slow and late -the room was never ready before 2 pm. The other problem is the current trend among hotels to feature beds with a plush mattress, a heavy quilt and very soft pillows. It all makes for sweaty and fitful sleep and, quite soon, a back pain. Turning down the heat gets you a head cold. It was good to have free wi-fi, breakfast and all day access to the coffee lounge. And the location is excellent. Read less
