“A bit dated but perfect location and friendly staff”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

This hotel is a bit shabby and outdated but you could not get a better location for the price and the staff are all lovely.
They are currently undergoing refurbishment and I'm sure that means the prices will go up. The wine bar on the 2nd floor was very well appointed and offered good value for money on all house drinks at 50% during happy hours.
The breakfast offered could be a little more interesting but it was quick and efficient to start your day.
2 computers available all day for free internet access and wifi throughout.

Room Tip: There is only one lift that you sometimes have to wait ages for so ask for a lower floor so you can...

We stayed 2 nights in late May because the Stanford is within walking distance of Penn Station. We arrived early and checked in, but the room wasn't ready yet. The front desk people were pleasant and got us into our room as soon as they could. This is an older hotel. Our room was nice enough - the windows faced a brick wall - clean and comfortable. Mattress was very firm with smallish pillows. Our room was located near the second floor lounge which had coffee for hotel guests during specific hours. Continental breakfast - bagels and pastries, fruit, etc. Took advantage of the location to eat in a nearby Korean restaurant. For tourists, hotel is near subway stations, Fifth Avenue, Herald Square, and the Empire State Building. Times Square is nearby. Would recommend to friends on a budget looking for a basic hotel. There was a small refrigerator in our room - no ice machine on the floor but someone brought me some when I requested it.

Our family of 4 spent 4 nights in Hotel Stanford last week. We had the queen suite - two beds and a living room area. This worked really well for us. The room and bathroom was quite spacious for New York. The bathroom was great - large shower and good exhaust fan. I have no complaints about the room. The locations was great too. Just around the corner from Macy's and two blocks from Empire State Building.

The one big negative was the breakfast. It was all muffins, pastries, bagels and it was all rather hard and dry. They also had apples, but some cereal and banana would have been really nice after 4 mornings of stale stuff.

Oh and just a little tip - when it comes time to leave, don't let the door man get a taxi for you. Get it yourself because the taxi driver will charge you a flat rate instead of running the meter and then the driver gives the door man money for using his cab. We tipped the door man for getting us a cab then I watched the cab driver tip him again and the driver charged us more money than we paid when we got out own cab at the airport. Now we know...

We stayed for one night on our travels. The staff were pleasant but the hotel really needs some work. It was a lovely old hotel and a bit of TLC would be great. Having said that our room was clean and tidy. The free breakfast was really cheap. It was advertised as a continental breakfast but there was no cereal and no bread, just bagels and pastries. We wanted to take a couple of muffins back to our room but the people at breakfast weren't too happy about that and said that there was no eating in the rooms. We think it was an excuse to keep costs low.

Stayed here for 2 nights in early May for a business trip. The location, as others have said, is great. Right by Herald Sq and Penn Station. The rooms are small, but the beds are comfy; clean linens and towels. The bathrooms could use updating but no major complaints. The breakfast left something to be desired; carbs carbs and carbs. Overall, for the price and location, this is a good place to crash when you are seeing the sights in NYC on a budget.
