Great City Location The New Yorker is in a fantastic place for exploring and getting around the city, situated right opposite Penn Station and Maddison Square Garden and a short walk from Times Square and Hudson mall and piers. Hotel staff were friendly and professional and hotel clean but although it’s an old hotel with lots of history it needs a bit of an upgrade/paint etc looks tired but bed comfortable and being the city that never sleeps it was well received after a long day on our feet. No tea and coffee in rooms but a coffee bar in lobby and the Tick Tock 24 hr diner too, good choice of breakfast and meals and also a McDonald’s and Starbucks right opposite hotel although plenty diners and bagel shops on each corner too.
Stayed here for 4 nights with friends on a recent trip to New York. We booked the hotel through a package deal with virgin holidays. I emailed ahead and requested rooms with a view as our party were celebrating a birthday and we were given excellent rooms (3318) with views of the empire state, Chrysler building AND Madison square garden from our window!!! Jessica on the reception desk was particularly helpful so Thankyou! The hotel itself is a little tired around the edges, carpets and wall paper could do with an uplift but these are minor niggles. It’s a beautiful art deco hotel with many original features which have been maintained well. The rooms were clean and functional, they have an iron and most have a coffee machine. The beds were so SO comfortable and extremely welcome after a long day of sightseeing. The road noise can be heard quite clearly even on floor 33 so I would advise taking ear plugs. Yes the area is less than salubrious post covid, there are more homeless than you would expect for the area but in no way is this the hotels fault. Same with the smell of pot which is seemingly EVERYWHERE since it was legalised, something that you have to accept. Straight over the road is liberty bagel - 100% recommend ordering online and going over to collect for breakfast, this is a cheap and filling way to start your day…plus the bagels are epic! We ate in the TikTok diner for breakfast which was standard diner fayre. The hotel is extremely well located, 10-15 minute walk from Times Square, Macy’s is adjacent to the hotel as is Penn St station which gets you to Brooklyn and down town really quickly. I would stay here again.…
We stayed 3 nights prior to Thanksgiving and had booked a double room with an optional upgrade to a double/double to allow our daughter (living in NJ) to stay with us for one night. The upgrade wasn't available but Lynn on reception was able to upgrade us to a suite with a view for not too much extra making the overall stay really good value. The hotel was busy throughout our visit but very clean throughout and ideally located for sightseeing and access to NJ from Penn Station. There was plenty of choice for places to eat within a short walking distance, including the Tik Tok diner located in the Foyer which was reasonably priced and good quality. Good hotel, I would thoroughly reccomend it.
November 2022. Hotel in great location right next to Penn Station with easy access to subway and walkable to many restaurants and Times Square area. Lobby and communal areas are well kept and spacious. However, we booked a single queen room and were really disappointed. The room was clean but both bathroom and bed area were worn and very outdated. Noisy overnight as well with loud guests in nearby rooms. If you get a cheap price then this is fine but accommodation standards in the room we had was way below expectations for price we paid.
From the moment we arrived till the moment we checked out we were treated fantastically , staff couldn’t do enough for you , room was immaculate and a great bathroom and with tons of fluffy towels . This will be our go to hotel whenever visiting New York from now on . Huge thanks to Belkis who went above and beyond for us
I believe you just need to look at a hotels towels to tell you everything you need to know. Their bath towels are tea towel size and mean. No shower gel just soap - tells you everything. $389 a night. Cramped damp, or too hot, ugly, battered and unpleasant. The bathroom looks like it was last renovated in the 70's and the shower is a basic scalding or freezing mixer. The bedroom is cheap and dated. The staff are pleasant. Just don't. The holiday inn is down the road and would be much better.
A Wonderful, Clean, Safe Hotel. From the moment you pull up.to the hotel you are greeted by a wonderful Doorman/ Bellman when you walk into the Spacious Well Lit and Designed Lobby the Front Desk.Staff welcomes you with Open Arms as if you are Family. The rooms are Spotless the hallways are Super Clean. 3 restaurants on premises. EXTREMELY SAFE with a Profesional Security Team not just a.Freak in a Uniform But well managed security. I have traveled all over staying in regular and super expensive places. The New Yorker is what a Hotel is meant to be " A Home Away From Home. If you stay anywhere else in New York City you are Foolish.
Just returned after 4 nights at the New Yorker. The hotel is right opposite penn station which was fantastic as we got the train from the airport. The hotel is art deco style and has a huge reception . Check in was quick and we arrived in our double room on floor 21. The room was ok it was slightly outdated decor wise but it was clean and had a bath and a shower. They made the bed each day and changed the towels. The bed was really comfortable and There was a tv and a small wardrobe with a safe in it. There was no kettle or tea/ coffee facilities which was a shame as all you wanted in the Morning was a coffee. However opposite the hotel is a Starbucks roughly $5 a coffee or a macdonalds about $3 a coffee. There is also 2 supermarkets 1 minute walk next door should you need anything. Times Square is a10/15 minute walk away and Macy’s is a 5 minute walk on the same street.(34th) We found the hotel to be in a fantastic location and really handy for getting everywhere. Central Park is at the top of 8 th avenue which the hotel is on and takes 20/30 minutes to get there. For breakfast we ate at the bagel shops down the street at the side of Starbucks. These averaged $6 and were huge. Eating out is fairly expensive but we found a amazing diner called Dallas BBQ opposite Madame Tussaud’s. You can get a steak and prawns for $20. It was amazing and we ate here twice. Overall the hotel is great and we would return…
We stayed at the new yorker for six nights, the girl at reception made sure we had a room with a view , a view of the empire state building no less, the staff were always friendly and helpful, the room was clean tidy and comfortable, perfect location, subway station just outside, walking distance to times square, bars and diners close by, maceys just up the road, yellow cabs always outside if you needed one, if one not there, the doorman hailed one for you, would highly recommended staying here, we would return without hesitation
The hotel rooms need to be remodeled. Halls look dingy and the rooms need paint. Complained and was moved to the remodeled tower. 100% better. There is a resort fee and I didn’t see any resort offerings. Paid to much to stay here. Not worth it. On-site restaurant was not good and the little cafe coffee was horrible.
