NYC rooms are often rather, shall we say, 'compact'. However, the Salisbury's rooms are substantially bigger, as they used to be apartments! For a supplement, you can upgrade to a huge suite with 2 double beds and separate living room with sleeper sofa. The location is wonderfully central - how about a jog in the park or a bit of shopping down 5th Avenue?

This could not be a better location for a winter season NYC visit. Close to 5th Ave to see the Christmas window displays, close to Broadway and Times Square, just down from Central Park and across... Read more from Carnegie Hall. Our room was really large for New York hotels, a king-sized bed and lovely large closet. The service was fine, the door men and concierge were outstanding. We loved it. Clean, great price and, did I mention, the perfect location? Read less
We recently stayed in this hotel, booking a 1 bedroom suite so 3 of us could stay together. When we arrived, we would told that they were overbooked and that we could have a regular room for 30% off... Read more the price of our suite. We protested and, because there were 3 of us, we were offered 2 regular rooms for the price of one room. We felt we had a confirmed booking and that this was not acceptable so asked for the manager. The manager was not available to discuss the situation but we were asked to check in and then discuss with the manager. We didn't because we did not want to move. (Based on later conversations with other guests, we were not the only ones being told their suite was not available and told they would need to move in the middle of their stay.) We would have had to move at 11 am the next day and then check back into our original suite at 3 or 4 pm, being roomless for a big part of the next day. Since it was then around 5:30 pm, we told the desk attendant that it was apparent that the suite we had booked was being held for someone else. We were able to call the Affinia 50, another suite hotel which we have found to be quite nice but with a somewhat less desirable location, who offered us a 1 bedroom suite for the same price as the Salisbury. Coincidentally, once we had made that call, the gentleman who was at the desk was able to "free up" another suite and check us in for the duration of our stay so we would not need to move. So we decided to stick with the Salisbury since we were already there. In all, except for the issue of checking in, the staff was very accommodating during our stay. The rooms are pretty tired looking but this is expected given the reasonable price of the accommodations. And the location is ideal. In the winter, bring earplugs because they leave the AC units in the windows which means a great deal of street noise travels into the room, even late at night when the trucks deliver food and garbage is picked up (I've stayed in NYC a lot and am used to the noise and I consider the noise level to be pretty high here). Also, there have been repeated problems with the construction crane near by. For example, we went back to pick up our bags and were blocked from the hotel for about 45 minutes because the NYPD had closed the street. To the credit of the hotel staff, they rounded up the bags of several guests and rolled them down to the next street to allow them to make their flights. So, all in all, i am giving it an average rating but am not likely to stay there again. I don't appreciate having to fight for my room when I have a confirmed reservation. Read less
My daughter and I just spent the Thanksgiving weekend at the Salisbury. She marched in the parade, I watched from just around the corner on 6th Ave. We were amazed at the size of the rooms. We had a... Read more suite - living room with sofabed (didn't use), huge bedroom with king bed (there was room for 2 full-size baby cribs if anyone wanted to have them) many spacious closets, the m/w and fridge,coffeemaker and butler's sink came in very handy. The bed was so comfortable, and so were the pillows (I'm hard to please about pillows). Extra wool blankets, etc. Normal-sized bathroom with plenty of thirsty towels. A couple of doors away is a 24-hour food shop for milk, yogurt, breakfast at rock-bottom prices, candy, panini sandwiches, etc., etc. Friendly clerks. We saw a concert across the street at Carnegie Hall and stopped into The Russian Tearoom (a New York institution) for tea and dessert afterwards. It's a jewel box with impeccable service. Walked to 5th Ave. and window-shopped Bulgari, Van Cleef and Arpels, Harry Winston (that's my kind of window-shopping!). The hotel is so centrally located that I recommend it highly to any New York visitor who wants to be near the action. Many families were at the hotel when we were, and they would be able to spread out even in the single rooms, I'm sure. Lots and lots of room for the extended family in the suites. For the location (57th St.) this is a remarkably affordable hotel but be sure to check the weekend rates and discounts. We had an amazing discount and didn't expect a suite! BTW, our suite was immaculate. Read less

The subway station was only 100 m away.The hotel was old but comfortable with a staff who always wanted to help.We got a big double room with two large beds and possibilities to make tea and coffee.
