The New Yorker, A Wyndham Hotel

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.

This hotel was recommended to us by Virgin holidays. First impressions were okay, although I was worried about the area the hotel is located in. I was staying here with my teenage children and had booked 2 rooms, when checking in we were given rooms 5 floors apart which wasn't ideal. I have seen a lot of reviews about the lifts, however we didn't have a problem with this and only waited a short time, if at all. The ticktock diner is very good, reasonably priced and so convenient. Our rooms, located on the 21st and 26th floors, were small (even though they were both double, double rooms) and dated. The walls are paper thin and we could hear the people next door singing in the shower and using the toilet. Overall outlook stay was satisfactory, but we would not stay here again. Read less

This hotel worked great for our family. The diner downstairs was really good and affordable. There is also a bar which was nice for the adults. You can see the Empire State Building from some of the rooms so request a view. McDonald's and Starbucks was across the street which is nice for a quick breakfast. We did end up taking 10 min taxi rides… Read more

You can see the Empire State Building from some of the rooms so request a view. McDonald's and Starbucks was across the street which is nice for a quick breakfast. We did end up taking 10 min taxi rides to most of the sights. Was a little far for small kids to walk. The staff is super nice. Muhammad at check in is very helpful. Read less

We visited over a 4-day period to get in a short vacation. We chose the hotel because it was a classic hotel with character and history.

We visited over a 4-day period to get in a short vacation. We chose the hotel because it was a classic hotel with character and history. The hotel is a bit older but had all the things that we were looking for. We had a minor issue with the room keys and the staff resolved the problem by upgrading our room to one with a view. It is within walking distance or a subway ride to about anywhere in the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful and provided anything we needed. The wifi was surprisingly fast and that satisfied the younger members of the family. If I were booking a stay in NYC again, I would choose this same hotel. Read less
