Broadway at Times Square Hotel
Ranked #192 of 470 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. You can not beat the location. Just a half block from the center of Times Square.

The hotel is very small, rooms are small, but this is how most hotels are in NYC, especially the older ones. If you are doing NYC right, you are never in your rooms though. The entrance to the hotel is very nice and clean. Breakfast area was nice as well, but the breakfast definitely left a lot to be desired.

We were located in room 908, which is the top floor in the back of the building. There is a roof top bar at the back of the building and you can hear people talk and the music going to late into the night. Never really heard any noise from other rooms though, that is a plus.

The only real complaint we had about our room was the damp musty smell. It hit you as soon as you walked into the room. You could see signs of moisture and mold in the bathroom. The window in the bedroom constantly had condensation on it. This definitely bothered my wife more then it did me. The water pressure was also terrible and our tub didn't drain well. I just chalked those up to being a really old building.

I think 90% of this buildings/rooms problems could be fixed with new windows. I really think this would fix the moisture problem and the noise problem you have read in multiple reviews.

Overall it wasn't terrible or great. I would probably look for a different location when we come back to the city. But you really can't beat the price and location of this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are looking to avoid outside annoyances, ask for a room in the middle of the building or lowe...

Location, location, location. Yes, the Broadway at Times Square occupies prime NYC real estate, and as mentioned in previous reviews, it is clean and quiet with friendly staff. Those are the plusses. Minuses - room size. My bff and travelling companion suffers from claustrophobia and was very uncomfortable. We seriously had to horizontally edge our way around the beds to reach the bathrooms; the beds were so close to the bureau that it was not possible to open the drawers more than a crack. The bathroom, however, was a decent size and there was a sufficiently sized closet. The business center was also a minus. It proved impossible to print up our boarding passes for our return flight - very non user friendly. A solo traveler would probably be fine at the Broadway at Times Square, but I cannot imagine more than two people sharing a room that size.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back have no view whatsoever, but are quiet

Stayed at Broadway. Great location just off Times Square. very central. Staff all very helpful and welcoming. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. We had room at the back it was unbelievably quiet considering the location. Rooms not huge but adequate and comfortable. Breakfast is a bonus. Help yourself and plenty of choice. I would recommend this hotel to friends.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights in January 2014. As we were on a budget we were a little worried about the quality of the accommodation, however we were pleasantly surprised with the comfort in the rooms. It was one of the coldest weekends in NY however the room, although small, was warm and comfortable. The location was great for both Times Square and Central Park and many other Manhattan attractions which, if you like walking, are all within walking distance. The breakfast was very basic and all on throw away plates and cups, but sufficient to satisfy and set us up for the day.

We are a family of 4 and stayed for 7 nights at this hotel in January 2014. The location is fantastic - so close to Times Square! We had a 2 queen bed room that was not much larger than the 2 beds and 2 draw units, however we managed to find space for everything. The room remained a bit too hot even after the staff had adjusted the temperature for us, however we still managed a good sleep each night after big days exploring NYC. Everything is easy to get to from this location. The hotel provided a great breakfast to get you going each morning, and the breakfast room was very comfortable and supplied were always kept up. The hotel is clean and the staff are helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for fantastic value and a great location. We would stay here again.

We stayed here May 30, 2014. This hotel has very small rooms. That's all you need because you are not in your room much when you visit NYC. It is clean and the front desk is personable. It is literally around the corner form THE Times Square. We were in room 608 and heard music and laughing from a nearby bar. The A/C hum helped to muffle the sound. Beds were fine. The breakfast consisted of yogurt, waffles to microwave, boiled eggs, bagels and more. The coffee is delicious. Check out at noon.

Room Tip: In 608 we could hear partying in the bar. Loud music and laughing.

Stayed for 5 nights in May 2014.
Perfect place when coming for Broadway shows /just behind the corner/ - no problem to get into bed very quickly.
Good price.
Perfect two double beds for two people.
Close to the Central Park.
Most of Manhattan attractions /museums, Empire State Building, St. Patrick´s Cathedal.../ are within the walking distance.
Competent staff.
Sufficient breakfast.
