“First Class!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

We arrived at the New Yorker three hours early for check in on July 4th, hoping to at least be able to drop off our bags and even better if we could actually get into our room early. Upon arrival there was some kind of confusion over the accommodations for a tower suite I had booked on a travel site I had not used before, but had found through Kayak.

Oneida (sp?) at the front desk said not to worry, and in fact upgraded us for free to an executive suite with a huge balcony overlooking Manhattan. My wife and two kids could not believe what an unbelievable room we had and the balcony was such a huge hit it was hard to get them out the door to go explore NYC. The suite was immaculate and the queen size sleeper sofa was excellent for the kids in the main living room.

The hotel had a classic old school Manhattan feel, but updated enough to not feel out of date. Cool to know the likes of Muhammad Ali, Joe DiMaggio, JFK, etc had stayed there back in the day. Enjoyed breakfast downstairs at the Tick Tock Diner, quick service and good food.

34th and 8th was a great location since we needed the subway to hit all the tourist stops, and Penn Station is right there. Not a bad walk to Times Square. Would definitely stay there again on a future visit from NC.

Room Tip: I've read where some of the rooms are tiny and a different experience, but the value of a suite...

I went with my 2 sisters and we loved the hotel. Suzie at the Concierge desk was very helpful and made our trip a success. She suggested places to see and eat and took time to help us book our shows. She took extra time to help us every day.

My friend and I stayed at The New Yorker June 21-24th. Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Within 20 minutes of checking into our room, Mohammed at the front desk called to see how we liked our room which was a spacious 2 queen corner room with a view of the Empire State building on the 32nd floor. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Room very clean and beds are comfortable. Bathroom is a bit small and nothing fancy, but clean. Because we were celebrating our 50th birthdays, we were given a small gift when we checked in. Location of the hotel is perfect for everything, Penn Station is right across the street, walking distance to Times Square, Hell's Kitchen, Theatre District and Central Park was about a 20 minute walk. Check out was smooth and we did use the hotel's transportation service to get back to LaGuardia, worth the $50 for a SUV, air conditioned ride. Will definitely stay here again for our next trip to NYC.

We stayed at the New Yorker in Sept 2011. We chose it because looking at the map it was central. It is central, but having said that, it looked to us like a rather run-down part of New York. The streets were strewn with litter and there was a constant pong from the drains running beneath the pavements and lots of 50p shops! As for the hotel, it’s just 'OK'. Rooms are minute; the single built-in wardrobe would not have looked out of place in a dolls house and to make it even smaller, there was an ironing board in it! Not much point in ironing your clothes when there’s nowhere to hang them! We had to ask for more hangers too, only 5 provided for 2 adults for a 6 day stay! The bathroom was sparse, the odd cracked tile and don’t rely on complimentary shampoo etc, it’s all pretty low grade! Simple things would have improved the bathroom like a toilet role holder and a soap dish! The shower was powerful though and plenty of hot water and the bedroom was clean. The 1930’s theme would have been appreciated if the furniture had not been ‘Dime Store’ standard! At the concierge in the lobby there was a constant queue; the one morning we did wait to speak to the lady, she couldn’t offer us any advice on choosing a tour bus company other than “if you walk down the street you’ll find a rep”. The adjoining Tick Tock diner is only acceptable if you can’t find anywhere open nearby when you arrive; it’s expensive, the place isn't too clean, and the toilets are really bad. For a good breakfast, as you exit the hotel, turn left and there’s a great self-service place a few yards down. Not as much selection on a Sunday (when there aren’t any office workers) but great in the week and the cheese pastries are to die for!

Overall the hotel is architecturally stunning, in a good location transport-wise and for site seeing, but rooms are certainly not 4 star standard and as such the hotel is overpriced. If I went back to New York, I’d stay out of the thick of it, in Greenwich Village and travel to the sites from there, as public transport is so good. That way you are staying in a much nicer environment.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter

Have just come back from 2nd trip to New York again staying at the New Yorker Hotel with my 16 y.o. daughter. This time had 2 doubles and found the room to be a good size, clean and well serviced by the maid's.Staff in the reception and concierge areas were all very pleasant and helpfull at all times. Again it is an excellent base to explore the city. Used the Tick Tock Diner regularly and whilst the food is still excellent the quality of service compared to a year ago was not as good. The female staff, who are the minority, were a lot more attentive than their male counterparts, although the 2 female floor supervisors(I think that is what they were) who guided you to your tables could have looked a bit more interested in what they were doing and smiled a bit more, it all appeared a bit of chore to them.
