“Transit Camp.”
Reviewed 21 May 2012

Slow check-in. Uninviting, featureless corridors. Small rooms with carpets in need of cleaning. Found a flea in my bed (dead!). Bathroom needed a complete refurb: the bath enamelling was worn in lots of places. Floor and its corners needed a good clean. Noisy neighbours at 4am, slamming doors, swearing, etc. A transit camp of a hotel and definitely not 4 star! The staff, however, were very helpful. The Tick-Tock Diner attached to the hotel is nothing special (there's a better Market Deli round the corner for breakfast).

Room Tip: Get a room as high as possible for a view of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building - a...

We stayed here for nine nights after reading dozens of reviews on TripAdvisor and elsewhere. We found the hotel as described by most here. The outstanding thing about this hotel is its location it is fabulous for the New York visitor. Times Square, Broadway theatres and shopping are all an easy walk. There are dozens of diners, coffee shops and restaurants close, in fact everything in midtown is close by and being so near to Penn Station and the subway makes getting around everywhere else simple. But none of that would matter if the hotel was below expectations. We found it a very comfortable place to stay. Our room was on the 29th floor in a corner so while it was hike to the lifts it was pretty quiet as we only had two rooms near us and no one above us. The room itself was clean and comfortable, the bed was fantastic. As many have said here the bathroom was a bit used but even though it was a bit "lived in" it too was clean and had everything we needed. The night we arrived the hot water for the whole hotel was not working which is not what you want to hear after 30 hours and two very long flights. But when it was fixed it was pretty good. The Tick Tock diner was OK but the bar off the foyer was excellent, they made a great old fashioned but order a Manhattan, its the best I've ever had and the food was pretty good as well. The staff we had contact with were all friendly and helpful. we loved the art deco touches and the history of the place is pretty amazing. If we ever go back to New York this will be the place we'll be staying....

Being in Midtown you can get to anywhere in Manhattan easily. Many places are walkable but if you need the subway it is just at the end of the block and you are almost opposite Penn Station if you want to go further afield. The room was a little small but very clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Decor throughout was in keeping with the age and style of the building. Plenty of lifts available at all times. In-store shop had souvenirs at better prices than in town. My only criticism is the lack of tea & coffee making facilities in the room- though these are always available in the foyer. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The restaurant attached to the hotel does a good early evening deal for $20 and the food is lovely- not all chips! I would recommend the diner 1 block down for a hearty and inexpensive breakfast.

Room Tip: If you want the view you will need to request it as many rooms don`t have one- but these are probabl...

Wonderful location, very clean, comfortable bed.
Million dollar view!
Also liked the food and atmosphere at the Tick Tock Diner!
Could barely close my eyes and not look out at the view!
Friendly helpful staff!

We were originally booked to stay in Hotel Pennsylvania, but it was so horrific we only lasted there one night. We had heard good things about The New Yorker so booked straight in there. It was lovely, just what we expected from a decent hotel in New York, modern, clean and comfortable.
The location was perfect! Opposite the hotel was a Mc Donald's/TGI/Starbucks and Penn station was just over the road which turned out to really useful for the journey to the airport! I would definetly recommend using the LIRR to the airport, much cheaper and faster then a yellow cab!

Room Tip: Higher up room, less noisier!

Stayed for 4 nights with my friend on girls holiday, both our first visit to New York. Hotel was lovely very old school, only issue is few floors seemed to have rennovations into apartments which does kind of take away the old school glamour of this building. Rooms nice and tidy, very keeping with style of hotel. Had no view but for a wall but i suppose you dont come to New York to look out the window. Hotel Diner was superb, quick service, lots of variety, staff so friendly we bumped into a waiter one day just walking around and he introduced us to his whole family...so sweet!!
Location is fantastic, opposite madison square gardens so subway right next door. Quick 2 minute walk to Macys and Empire State Building. New York is so easy to walk around and find your own little hidden gems, i stumbled across a Marc Jacobs sample sale in Greenwich Village much to my banks dismay!!
Would definatly stay at this hotel again, great location, fantastic style and ideal to see all that manhatten beholds.
Oh and ladies the sex and the city tour is a must....there is always one person who doesnt want there free cosmopolitan!!

A friend and I travelling to NYC for my birthday stayed here for 3 nights at the end of April. We were in a room with two double beds on the 19th floor and we had a view of the Empire State Building and MSG. The room wasn't huge but it was perfect for what we needed it for. Everything was very clean and the cleaning ladies did a great job every day. We arrived early so our room wasn't ready but we were able to leave our bags and start exploring the city right away. When we did get checked in, the girl that was helping us (Ruth) made sure that we had a room with a view and also gave me a little box of truffles when she found out that it was my birthday! There are no safes in the room but you can use a lock box located at the front desk for free. When it was time to check out, we were able to again leave our bags and head out for the day as our flight wasn't leaving until later that evening. The friendly staff also helped us arrange hassle-free transportation to the airport. We did have breakfast one morning at the tick-tock dinner. The food was fast, hot and not to badly priced either! There is a great little gift shop in the basement of the hotel near the work-out room that is actually cheaper than many of the gift shops in the area! Everything was within walking distance and Penn station is across the street if you want to take the subway anywhere. Overall, the hotel was great and I would not hesitate to stay there again and recommend it to others. Thanks New Yorker for making my birthday trip so memorable!
