The New Yorker, A Wyndham Hotel

Midtown, New York

The hotel

Part of the very fabric of Midtown Manhattan, this Art Deco attraction is proudly capped with the red ‘New Yorker’ sign that’s made it a landmark in the city skyline. Inside its iconic 1929 shell, this Jazz Age hotel’s held on to its heritage with Art Deco inspired rooms, while moving with the times with complimentary WiFi. Its top location, just a block from Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, means you’re well placed for attractions like Macy’s, Times Square and the Empire State Building. And it doesn’t matter what time you finish exploring, its 24-hour Tick Tock Diner will give you a taste of New York with American comfort food classics like burgers and all-day breakfasts.

The hotel best selling point is its location. 1 block from Macy's, across the street from MSG and a 15 minute walk to Empire state building. We had no issues with the staff, they were always polite. We were offered an upgrade and negotiated a better deal for the 8 nights we stayed. Our room was on 31st floor. it was a good size, had room and… Read more
The hotel best selling point is its location. 1 block from Macy's, across the street from MSG and a 15 minute walk to Empire state building. We had no issues with the staff, they were always polite. We were offered an upgrade and negotiated a better deal for the 8 nights we stayed. Our room was on 31st floor. it was a good size, had room and even a fridge. The view of the empire state building was fab. The bathroom.. it definitely needs a makeover it was dated and not great. The biggest issue is their facility/resort fees of $31 a day. its a complete and utter rip off. How the state is allowing hotels to charge these fees is beyond me. For the fee you get use of the business centre, gym and their 'free' wifi .... Shocking! Read less

This hotel was dirty, outdated and overpriced. Buyer beware, upon arrival I had to pay an addition $40 facility fee I was not aware of. The staff was not in the least concerned with my concerns. I would not recommend!

We just checked in and have been really happy with our experience. Mohammed at the front desk in particular was spectacular in helping us get checked in, and was super kind and caring despite the long lines - very professional and helpful. Even called the room to check on us - WOW. We are now enjoying our nice, clean room - so roomy compared to so many boutique hotels around here. And beds seem really comfy, and good soundproofing. We also visit the Tik Tok diner downstairs frequently (more than for just this stay) and the food is always fresh and good. Thumbs up! Read less

Lovley Hotel but customer service is terrible. Have contacted this hotel numerous times about something that was left in the room and have yet to get a reply. Have done email, Facebook, messenger and haven't the courtesy to contact me back.

Only thing is 4/6 lifts to the 20th floor weren’t working so everyone who was on the first 19 floors had to wait for two lifts which were crowded so if they were fixed would be so much easier! But great stay. Read less
