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.

We had a comfortable 4 night stay at this perfectly located hotel. Positives : - excellent central location, our room had views of Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden - quick and efficient check in and check out - friendly and caring staff - large, spacious room with 2 very comfortable double beds on floor 35 - small bathroom with a powerful shower and lots of very hot water - high standard of cleaning - great food at Tick Tock Diner and the adjoining Italian. Negatives : - waiting for lifts was a real pain. One night there were so many people waiting, a member of staff took groups of guests up in the staff lift - Towels were clean and regularly replaced but small and not oft - Nowhere to place toiletries in the small bathroom - No kettle but one could be hired for $30 dollers a day Overall we were delighted with our choice of hotel and would thoroughly recommend it. It is a beautiful building with real charm and original features. Thankyou for a great stay. Read less

We arrived at the New Yorker after a 3 hour wait to get through immigration. I would have thought an airport like JFK would have been more organised. We got a taxi to the hotel ($65 plus tip) and upon arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to a family suite on the 39th floor. We were also told that we had free wifi and free international calls. There was a facilities fee of $135 which we were told was for things like water/room service etc. Turns out the facilities fee was for the "free" wifi and we felt completely ripped off and we were charged $92 dollars for this privilege of using this. Our upgraded "suite" turned out to be nothing more than a run down bedsit with a double bed and a dirty looking sofa bed. We declined the offer of the upgrade and asked for the room we had originally booked which was an executive double with wet room. I can only assume that the hotel was hoping to sell our original room at higher rate than we had booked for. Location wise the hotel is perfect but beware of hidden costs and room upgrades!!

Just home from a fabulous 4 day weekend in NYC. Had read lots of reviews leading up to our visit so was cautious. We travelled with two teenagers. Mohamed check us in on arrival who was very helpful and when I queried the upgrade request he then changed our room. Room one 2055 - rooms in the city are historically small this was tiny, cold, drafts through the windows , dusty and the bathroom was had hairs in the bath & was dirty. I went straight to reception and saw another helpful lady (no name sorry). This lady was very helpful and apologised profusely, not her thought of course. She kindly offered a room update and x4 free breakfast voucher for Tick Tock for the following day which was perfect. The bathroom was cleaned immediately. 3624 was a larger room, with amazing views ! Italian restaurant at hotel - one of the best Italians I’ve had for a long time. Well worth a visit. :) Tick Tock diner. Fab diner open 24/7 again used x2 well worth trying. Busy at breakfast time. :) Bottled water in rooms - charged at an extortionate amount ! Buy outside ! :( Tea/coffee - no in room facilities even in executive room :( Lifts - no all are working and at peak times you will wait, we never wait that long. :/ Luggage store - $5 per bag :/ Bathrooms/rooms - tired and old, but generally ok. :/ Fees - Please be cautious re room fee ours was waived but think they may have tried charging. :/ Remember this hotel was built in 1928 so is over 90’s old, it is an Art Deco masterpiece. If you want ultra modern book elsewhere if you want a nice old hotel with history in a fabulous location then seriously consider this hotel. Virgin airways crew use the hotel, so not that bad ;) Read less

This hotel is situated very close to the Empire State Building and everywhere is very accessible. The rooms are a reasonable size and if you want more space there is the option to upgrade. The staff were all helpful and friendly and everywhere was clean. Sometimes the lifts got very busy at peak times. I was sad that they don’t cater for gluten free and as a coeliac it was like going back in time to how the UK used to be! We were given breakfast vouchers which were no use to myself or my daughter because there was no pastries that were gluten free. We tried the restaurant one day as my daughter is vegan and again we really struggled. She lived on salad and chips and the breakfast I had was slapped onto the plate! It cost about £25! The hotel has 80 floors and the view across the city is brilliant . Read less

We were very lucky. Family traveling with 2 adult teen kids. We booked a suite with 1 bed and a pull out couch. We called to add a rollaway. They told us to ask when we check in if they have a upgrade available and we did just that. We were upgraded to a family suite with 2 double beds and a pull out couch. Even better TWO BATHROOMS and a terrace!… Read more
