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.

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.

We love to stop over in this vintage hotel situated in the heart of Manhattan. Even though the breakfast is not included in the room price, there is an adjusting bar open 24h/7 days a week and a chic restaurant situated in the basement: a former bank safe :-) One can put all the chargers on the hotel key - no inconvenience of separate payments.… Read more

Pay attention to a “cubist” mural in the stairway, downstairs, in association with a mirror breaking down your image in a similar way. Read less

I read the reviews, some great, some bad and some in the middle. I was very nervous. In my opinion. I loved the hotel. It is beautiful despite it being a little old. In a great location.

I read the reviews, some great, some bad and some in the middle. I was very nervous. In my opinion. I loved the hotel. It is beautiful despite it being a little old. In a great location. I can see the Empire State Building from my window which we loved. We nervous about the size of the room. It is on the smaller size but not horrible. Actually a little bit bigger than I expected. Plus, if you are on vacation, you don't want to sit in your room. You want to just sleep there. Enjoy the city! Beds were very comfortable, air conditioning was very cold. I was very lucky. The lobby was beautiful and large. Check in and out was easy. No lines and did everything easily. Staff was nice. Even has security before you go to the elevator. Elevators were short wait. My only complaint was that they charge you $5.00 a suit case if you get there early...which we did. No other hotel that we asked did this and they had plenty of room to keep it in storage. If you pay a decent amount of money and a guest, there should be no charge. All on all, we would definitely stay here again! Don't be afraid and don't listen to all the horror stories. Atleast in our 5 night stay, we loved it! Read less

Will not spend my points to stay there again. Extremely dirty. Hair everywhere. Tiny bedroom. Not to mention only 1 person at front desk, and the longest line to check in. Very disappointed. Never again.
