If you want to be in the middle of all the action and want a new, clean and safe place to rest then this is your spot. Nice full breakfast buffet is available each morning. Elevators are busy during the breakfast hours so plan accordingly.

Great stay at the Riu Everyone was friendly, helpful and upbeat Rooms were clean and bed was very comfortable. I didn’t eat in the restaurant but did use the Starbucks located in the lobby area. You can’t beat the location.Less than a block from Times Square. Will definitely be stay at this property in the future.

For the price and location I wasn’t expecting much but this hotel was excellent and surpassed all expectations. Check in was fast and courteous. Travelled as a family of 4 and room was 2 large king beds and a fold out sofa bed (which we didn’t need and folded back up) - was plenty big enough. Breakfast buffet was great, loads of choice and never too busy. Location was superb. Just off time square, great sports bar directly opposite - very welcoming and well recommended too. Walking distance to all midtown attractions (and those further afield if you’re prepared to walk a bit further). Staff were all really friendly and helpful. Will definitely book to stay again next time we’re in NYC.

Lovely hotel close toTimes Square. Large bedroom and shower room. Very comfortable bed with super soft pillows. Refrigerator was a reasonable size although would have liked a coffee maker. Breakfast was just brilliant; the choice and quality of the produce was extremely good and if not included in room price was still exceptional value for money. Front desk always helpful. Even though building works across the road, noise minimal.

This centralized hotel is about as perfect as it gets when it comes to a long "Broadway Show Weekend". Our room (Standard) was immaculate, plenty of room even with 2 huge Queen Beds pushed together to make for an extra huge sleeping area, and very quiet. The extra bonus was an unexpected benefit for us - a delicious FULL breakfast buffet every morning that was very easy to get into and enjoy. Additionally, the staff were all wonderful and friendly for us newcomers to NYC, making us feel very welcome.

My husband, daughter, and I spent one night here and loved it. The location is perfect - one minute to Times Square, 5 minute walk to Rockefeller Plaza, less than 10 minute walk to Bryant Park, and a 2 minute walk to Six the Musical at the Lena Horne Theatre (excellent show!). The room was clean and had pretty much everything you could need: safe, refrigerator, hangers, iron and ironing board, full length mirror, hair dryer, magnified makeup mirror, and toiletries. We did feel that the room was a bit narrow/small. Beds were comfortable but the actual mattress could easily slide right off the pedestal - kind of strange. The bathroom was large with a large shower. I know this may sound strange, but we did not like the toilet - square-shaped and too high off the ground - so a bit uncomfortable. We did find the elevators were busy at breakfast time - crowded and we had to wait a couple minutes - but really not a big deal to us. We used a parking garage down the street which was convenient. There is actually a parking garage right next to the hotel (which we had booked through Spot Hero). Unfortunately, their car elevator was not working so we had to find a different garage. But, if the garage next door is open, it is quite convenient. Overall, we were very happy with this hotel (especially the location) and would definitely stay here the next time we go to NYC.

Loved this hotel. Had all that we needed and more. Staff were amazing, so helpful and respectful. Rooms were just right, not massive but we only used them to sleep! Sound proof rooms, no noise from outside. Brekkie was awesome and kept us full for the day. It is one minute walk from Times Square, handy to the subway and fifth Ave.

Visiting NY for the first time we booked the hotel based on location, price and reviews and were not disappointed. It is 1 minute from Times Square. The rooms are adequately sized, with comfortable beds and efficient climate control. The hotel was very busy when we were there, always lots of people in the Lobby etc, but that didn't impact our trip at all, and we didn't experience any of the long waits for the elevators that are mentioned a number of times. At most we waited 2 minutes at around 7:55am for one. We had breakfast twice and its great value for money, compared to heading to a local diner, with great choice of dishes, hot and cold. The only small element that could be improved is the service in the "Grab and Go" it takes forever and should be called "Grab and wait a long time before you Go". I would recommend the hotel management look at the team in there and how they operate!
