Midtown, New York

Virgin rating

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. If you fancy something a little more upmarket, the New Yorker’s Trattoria Bianca comes with an oyster bar.

The hotel is beautiful, we had a great view and the staff is always nice. The only thing that we did not like is that they charge you extra for safe keeping your luggage (5 dollars per item) before check-in and after check-out. But other than that it is a great hotel and the location is excellent.

We stayed at the New Yorker again this week, and from the reservation process to check out, they exceeded all expectations. But I'd have to say that the front desk check in experience was where the New Yorker really stepped up and delivered. "Samira" was simply wonderful. There are not enough words to express how much she made a difference in our stay, right from the start. What a way to be welcomed back to NYC! Honestly, she was perhaps the most qualified, professional, courteous, amiable and helpful person I've ever encountered when visiting NYC. Samira went out of her way to make us feel welcome, offered helpful suggestions when asked, instinctively offered a late check out option, and really made the entire check in a fantastic and memorable experience. Such a beautiful and genuine person- she truly is a gem! I will also say that the rest of the on site staff were all quite kind, and greeted us warmly as we came and went throughout our stay. And I can't forget to mention 'Shine', who patiently guided me through the reservation process a few weeks back. Great sense of humor and very helpful! Rooms: Both rooms were on the 38th floor, with one overlooking 8th Street, and the other at the back of the building, with views of the river and countless skyscrapers. Both came with a spacious balcony, which offered a breathtaking view of that famous NYC skyline, Madison Square Garden, The Empire State building and more. The rooms were clean, well lit and with a perfect layout featuring two baths, a separate bedroom, dining table for 6, small fridge, open seating area, and a large patio. Parking We used Spot Hero to book a parking spot right around the corner on 33rd. (next to the Olivia). This enabled us to get in and out of New York in record time, and probably saved a nice chunk of change in the process. I'd highly recommend doing this whenever you're looking for a place to park in the city. Other: If you are staying in Mid-Town, it's going to be more expensive than elsewhere. But despite the costs (and yes, those pesky 'resort fees' or whatever they're calling them do apply here), you will get your money's worth at the New Yorker. The location can't be beat, and the Staff are just fantastic. Downside: Not much to complain about here. I will say that their 'price match' process leaves much to be desired, and when trying to get some clarity from their customer care person online, I felt like I was being given the run around. Next time, I don't think I'll bother. Read less

Location is as great as it gets, clean and secure hotel. The emploies are very helpfull and the check in and check out takes less than a minute. Subway stations all around the hotel as well as restaurants. Time square is 5 minutes walking distance away or one subway station.

Really enjoyed the trip and the hotel was nice and clean. Came here with my family to visit the city and it was in a good location that was close to many things and had a subway stop right outside. I would recommend as our stay was nice and the staff were very kind.

Beautiful restoration of an iconic NYC hotel. Close to the Javitz convention center. Comfortable and affordable. Fantastic city views. Friendly staff. I'll go back on my next trip. Self park is available (I didn't use it). Security made sure only guests could access the elevator. One of the best hotel stays in a long time.
