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.

I stayed in this hotel back in October and had a great experience. I booked it again for my parents wedding anniversary and got them the romance package. They didn’t get a room with a view or their free breakfast coupons. They tried to ask a desk person about it several times but were told to come back. I called but could only be told what they… Read more

Great iconic hotel, reasonable rates. Not top of the line by any means but really nice flavor of what things used to be with enough modernisation to make it work. Staff are really helpful, In house restaurant, Butcher & Banker is pretty good too.

We were in town for the annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show which we attend every year. We have stayed all over The City but this year we were bringing a dog to show and had been told The New Yorker was the best place to stay. We have to agree, although I don't think you need to bring a dog to think so. Our room was clean and well… Read more
We were in town for the annual Westminster Kennel Club dog show which we attend every year. We have stayed all over The City but this year we were bringing a dog to show and had been told The New Yorker was the best place to stay. We have to agree, although I don't think you need to bring a dog to think so. Our room was clean and well appointed, maid service very good, loved the fact there were three places to dine within the hotel, the Tick Tock Diner, a very good Italian Trattoria and the upscale steak house Butcher & Banker. Also very convenient was the coffee bar in the Lobby which we took advantage of every morning and brought up to our room. The hotel outdid itself offering a designated room as a potty area for the dogs, a $50 "paw pass" was obtained, the room was kept scrupulously clean and monitored. My only criticism is it was closed Wednesday morning, before check-out time. We respectfully ask that the hotel leave this open until Noon on the day most of us depart which is Wednesday. John, the man in charge of transportation was a marvel, very helpful and well organized. Another employee to call out is Naida who was the hotel operator on the day of our departure. She could not get through to the Front Desk to ask for a late check-out for us and took it upon herself to extend our check-out time. We only needed an extra hour and it was great that she was able to assure us we could do this. We were very grateful. We will be booking The New Yorker for 2020. Read less

Stayed for one week at the New Yorker Hotel. Good things were location and Tick Tock Diner. Not so good was the first room we stayed in, which was right next to a supply cupboard and very noisy at night as well as some noise from outside. Also, the decor in this room was very dated with paint peeling off the bottom of the bathroom door and the door looking rotten in some places. Also. there was a really, and I mean really, cold draft coming through the seals around the edge of the double glazed windows. We asked to be moved the following day and were moved to a room 6 storeys higher, same size room, but again very draughty around the double glazing so much so that we had to request a spare Quilt to try and block the draft from the window, as well as an additional quilt for the bed to try and stay warm overnight. Water from the taps was green when we tried to run a bath. Shower was very temperamental and almost impossible to get right without a considerable amount of fiddling to get the temperature comfortable, it was either far too cold or scolding hot. Also given conflicting information as well. When we checked in we were informed nothing else to pay, yet on leaving were charged a facility fee, presumably to cover the somewhat random Internet access and also the gym we didn't use, although the international calls were shown as Free of charge these were more than covered by the facility fee we were charged at the end of our stay. Overall not impressed I wouldn't stay at this hotel again. Read less
