I use the hotel regularly for my business trips and never get disappointed. Ideal location in the middle of everything, immaculate cleanliness, wonderful service makes your experience nice. Pretty reasonably priced for Manhattan as well.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with Empire State building view and the view on floor 10 and above is really nice

My wife and I took our two boys (ages 11 and 15) to the City for a few days and the Strand was truly our home away from home. The staff at the Strand really make you feel welcome and are ready to take care of your every need.

After a long search through hundreds of expensive hotels we came across the Strand in the middle of Manhatten which close to Times Square and metro stops and at a reasonable price too.

The rooms were brilliant, clean and huge beds, which you need after the long amounts of walking you do.

I recommend checking out the roof bar for an amazing view of the Empire State Building at night...simply incredible to have a drink or two and watch this incredible landmark!

There isn't much to this hotel as it is small, but the rooms are great and clean and the service is FANTASTIC. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great place to stay in midtown. Also an amazing rooftop bar with an excellent view of the Empire State Building.

Great location--in midtown but street is quiet and easy. Excellent service and comfortable rooms. Just small enough to allow for guests to feel special and personally welcomed. The Roof is great and the staff are wonderful.

I'm a huge fan of The Strand...was debating where to stay in NYC for a quick weekend visit and I'm so happy that I chose this hotel. We were greeted warmly by John in reception...we were also surprised to be upgraded to a corner room on the top (20th) floor with a balcony and view of the Empire State bldg...how's that for awesome hospitality? The staff was super nice...always smiling and saying hello to guests. Rooms were very clean, spacious and modern. The hallways were quiet and there was very good soundproofing...we didn't hear a peep during our stay. The king-size bed was comfortable, sheets were soft and new. Bathroom was new and modern, great shower pressure. The location is great...we walked to great restaurants. There are many tourists but it wasn't right in the craziness of Times Square. However, if you are a walker, it's easy to get everywhere. There was even a bike rental location on the corner where we rented bikes for the day. They held our luggage for us on the last day so we could explore the sights. The rooftop bar clinched it for me...we headed up there daily for a drink and to relax, while taking in the NYC view. This Jersey girl is happy because this is my new go-to hotel when staying in NYC from here on in...thanks Strand staff!

Great location in the Garment District. Many attractions are within walking distance. The staff were nice, rooms were clean and comfortable. We asked for a room with a view, but got a room with a brick wall view. We were disappointed, but the room ended up to be very quiet. The Bistro was good and nicely decorated, service was slow. The selling point for The Strand is the rooftop lounge. It's a real gem!
