Staff helpful, good location near most landmarks, good size rooms, clean. Close to shops and restaurants, pubs and clubs.Bus stops just outside to get you further into the city for the attractions further away.

This place is a homeless shelter, literally. The management and ownership should hide in shame as they are a magnet for the hood to be an underbelly. By being so low class a destination this hotel has impacted very negatively what could be a nice area to live in

Virgin Holidays chose The Skyline for us, but neglected to tell us it was situated in a renowned 'gang area' (as so kindly described by our guide on the bus tour!).

Virgin Holidays chose The Skyline for us, but neglected to tell us it was situated in a renowned 'gang area' (as so kindly described by our guide on the bus tour!). We can safely say it is a very average hotel; the rooms were fairly clean and spacious, nothing really special stood out to me about the staff, although they were efficient with their service. There is no area for dining, which is a major flaw the hotel are really missing out on. The rooftop pool was like something out of the 70s (literally - in much need of an update!), however the views over the city were breathtaking. It's safe to say, we also didn't feel very safe walking around the area, particular after dark. The good thing is, the hotel is a 5 minute walk from Times Square, so it's location is ideal. Not sure we would stay here if we returned. Read less

Fantastic hotel. Rooms are good size, something you don’t find in NYC. Close to many restaurants located on 9th Ave. 10-15 min walk to Times Square. Pool is heated which made the swimming for the kids very pleasant.

We visited this hotel on a Thursday in February - stayed here primarily for the pool since my kids were hoping to swim. Pool is a nice size on the top floor - Unfortunately, there was a private lesson going on and everyone else had to stay on 1 side of the pool so that the instructor and his student had half of the pool (lengthwise), which really limited the guests to enjoying the pool. My kids were so turned off and annoyed they just got out and refused to go back in. Pool hours are already limited (opens up at 5pm) and then they didn't even get full use of the pool because of the lesson. Seemed pretty greedy of the hotel to book private lessons during guest time. The room we had was a suite with 2 beds & pullout sofa in the other room. Very spacious, even for 2 adults and 4 kids. Sofa bed was awful and even the kids couldn't sleep on it - so it was 3 in a bed, thankfully they were king size beds. Only 1 bathroom was rough, but it was 1 night and doable. Location - a bit sketchy at night and nothing to do. These were included in the price of the room - wifi for 3 devices, bottle of water per guest, coffee "bar" in the morning (2 keurigs). Parking is attached if you need it, so very convenient if driving. Otherwise, grabbing a cab was easy. Hotel seemed clean and some of the staff friendly (bell hops were very nice). Receptionists and concierge a bit strange and not overly friendly. No plans to stay here again - better off closer to get a hotel without a pool and be closer to the action. Read less
