Nice hotel for a decent price, a short distance from a fairly sketchy area of the city, but it’s NY. What do you expect. Great view of the city from my room, excellent cleaning services provided. Lines were slow for both check-in and check-out. But the stay itself was very nice.

I booked our stay for its convenience in location and its fairly reasonable price and it didn’t disappoint! It started with a great experience with the front personnel, specifically Mohammed, who accommodated our needs at check-in. For an 80-yr old hotel, it was updated as best it could to stick with an “art deco” theme. And how cool was it to be… Read more

It started with a great experience with the front personnel, specifically Mohammed, who accommodated our needs at check-in. For an 80-yr old hotel, it was updated as best it could to stick with an “art deco” theme. And how cool was it to be on the same floor as the Nicola Tesla room and study?! We found out about it after the fact! Would def book here again! Read less

Great time at the New Yorker. Loved the historical feel from the lobby when you walk in, to the rooms themselves, what a great throwback hotel. We upgraded our room to a Terrace Suite for only $100 more a day, they were going for double that price when trying to reserve.

Great time at the New Yorker. Loved the historical feel from the lobby when you walk in, to the rooms themselves, what a great throwback hotel. We upgraded our room to a Terrace Suite for only $100 more a day, they were going for double that price when trying to reserve. The room had a separate living area from the bedroom, and the beautiful terrace with great city views. The woman at the front desk was extremely helpful also. To people who are looking to stay here, just realize what this hotel is, it’s a nearly century old classic NYC hotel. The rooms are going to be smaller, you’re not going to have all the modern amenities of a brand new hotel. But you will get a classic experience of what NYC was like in the Golden Age of NYC.

The rooms are tiny but very clean and quiet with thick walls. Maid service excellent. All basic amenities provided. The Tick Tock restaurant was typically marginal NY junk fare, but large man at entrance and who served us breakfast was obnoxious, really rude to guests, particularly a Mexican couple: he pointed at them individually and said, "You!" as the man was trying to explain something goodheartedly, and made them recite what they wanted and walked away. Really, really rude. Not pleasant to us either although he couldn't have done that. And he rolled his eyes to us at a man who sat at the wrong table, and made some remark. He needs therapy and makes everyone feel upset or uncomfortable. The downstairs restrooms in the morning were filthy on Sunday morning! Read less

I’ll start off by saying that I am not the usual tourist who stays in this hotel. I work in Manhattan but commute into the city each day. We were supposed to meet family from out-of-town in NYC, but they had to cancel their travel plans due to COVID.

I’ll start off by saying that I am not the usual tourist who stays in this hotel. I work in Manhattan but commute into the city each day. We were supposed to meet family from out-of-town in NYC, but they had to cancel their travel plans due to COVID. Since it was too late to cancel our reservation without penalty, we decided to stay here for the July 4 weekend. We arrived at 8:30 p.m. and were checked-in by a very friendly and efficient front desk person. We were given at room on the 31st floor and the room we had reserved. The room was smaller than expected. However, it was laid out well so there was room to move around. The room was very clean, and the bed was great. The room featured a Keurig coffee maker with Starbuck’s coffee pods and a small refrigerator. The bathroom was a bit small but was also clean. Daily housekeeping service has returned here so the room was cleaned each day. Towels and toiletries were restocked as was the coffee. The hotel is in a very good location. You are not far from Penn Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal is a ten minute walk away. The A, C and E subway lines are literally right downstairs from the hotel so getting around from here is easy. The hotel itself is an older building and the room decorations reflect that. However, our room had been recently renovated so the old-fashioned look gave it a nice rustic feel. There are two restaurants on site here. The Tic Toc Diner which is open 24 hours and an Italian place. We did the Tic Toc a few times as it was convenient. The Italian place looked busy when we passed by in the evening. Overall, a good solid stay by two locals! I would recommend staying here and I would do so again. Read less
