“Hooray!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This was my third hotel during a hectic six day trip and I felt a huge sigh of relief when I walked in. Everyone was friendly, offering information about subways, the 9/11 museum, places to eat. The room itself was fairly small but tucked away into a quiet little corner of the 31st floor (Room 3132) with city views. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable, One real plus for me was that it was easy to control the heating and AC. I like to sleep in a cool room and did!

The hotel is immediately adjacent to Penn Station and the subway is right outside the door. Even better, the Tick Tock restaurant, open 24 hours a day, is part of the hotel and the food was basic diner fare, reasonably priced with good service.

I do think 4-star hotels should offer free Wi-fi in rooms as well as free guest access to in-house computers. The charge is only 25 cents per minute, but why any charge at all? The only other thing I felt was missing was a coffee maker in my room.

Room Tip: I was very happy with my little room (3132).

Green Features: The Wyndham, like many hotels, has instituted a policy of only changing bedding every three days. I applaud efforts to conserve energy and water. Kudos!

Check in receptionist was miserable. Barely spoke to us. Continually yawned during the process. Didn't programme one of the room key cards properly. Not impressed by Anneka at all. A friend of mine recommended this hotel to me and told me to ask for Mohammed on my arrival to try and get an upgrade but I didn't bother. Wish I had. Apparently he's lovely.

We stayed for four nights. On the third day, both our room keys stopped working. Again I was not impressed with this. Another receptionist was on the desk when I went to sort this out. She was called Romona and was just as skilled in customer service as Anneka. No smile, didn't speak, had no apology for us having to come the whole way down from the 21st floor to try and get a problem (which was not our fault) fixed.

I left a comment card in the express checkout box in the lobby beside the lifts which outlined my thoughts on the reception staff. That was a good three and a half weeks ago and I have yet to hear from management so obviously the card never reached them so they can read my review right here instead.

The most pleasant staff in this hotel are the house-keeping staff.

The room was clean and the layout of the lobby is nice and large.

Location-wise the hotel is ok. There is a subway station outside the hotel although it only serves the blue line. Mostly we had t use the orange or red line to see the sights.
There is a diner attached to the hotel which we had breakfast in 3 of the 4 mornings we were there. It was quite tasty for pancakes, waffles and crepes which is all we had. There's a McDonald's right across the street for anyone in a hurry.

There is a place around the corner on 9th avenue called Uncle Jack's Steakhouse which we found on the last day. This place was fantastic.

Room Tip: Definitely have the balls to ask for Mohammed.

Green Features: They do the "do we really have to wash your towel" thing which was the first hotel out of five in North America that did this.

I booked my 3 night stay at the Wyndham through Amtrak - who then processed it through Orbitz. When I arrived at 7:30 pm with my 82 year old fther on Father's Day, which was also his birthday, there was no booking in our name. The Guest Services Manager, Michael Simms, spent 40 minutes on the phone with both Amtrak and Orbitz, on our behalf to determine what had happened and if indeed there was a reservation for which we would be charged. After determining that they never put through our reservation. I was very concerned that even if we were able to get a room at this late hour that we would pay premium prices. Instead, Mr. Simms completely took care of us. He put us in an executive suite, charged us the same as the original room I thought had been booked - AND sent up a bottle of champagne to celebrate dad's big day. What could have really bee a nightmare situation was made stress-free and effortless.

In addition, on a number of occasions we needed staff to help - a recommendation for a restaurant, helping with the pull out couch, the remote needed a new battery - and each time the service was prompt, friendly and readinlyl available.

I travel to the city for business nearly every month and will now make the Wyndham New Yorker my destination for travel.

Room Tip: ask for one of the renovated rooms

My sisters and I (5 of us) booked a suite at this hotel. I had read the reviews and felt that it might not be perfect but it would be a nice stay. First, our balcony was under construction and was full of workers and noise all day, starting bright and early at about 7:30 am. All the balconies were under construction so there was no moving. And one of the selling points of this hotel is the view, hard to enjoy through scaffolding. Next, while they're in the process of remodeling the rooms they clearly hadn't gotten to this bathroom. The bottom of the tub, where you have to stand to take a shower, was gouged out. Not a look that makes you want to take a shower. Also, the water temperature was inconsistent and some of us came close to getting burned. On the first day, they sent someone to fix the water problem but we realized the next morning when showering that it hadn't really been fixed. We had a lengthy conversation with a manager and were able to get one night refunded but it didn't change the fact that they should not have been renting that room. I told the manager that he really should go look at the tub and see how that appears to a guest. The people there were nice, housekeeping was good but I wouldn't recommend the hotel at this point.
They charge to hold your bags when you check out - not something I've ever paid for.
They recommended their shuttle for going to the airport. We needed 2 because of different departure times. We were on our shuttle for 45 minutes on a very warm day, without the air conditioning working, circling the blocks near our hotel while the driver waited to pick up others that weren't ready when they were supposed to be. Finally, after 45 minutes we actually headed for the airport. The other shuttle got to the airport in a timely fashion but dropped off my sisters at the arrivals instead of the departures and it took them a long time to get to the right area.
All in all, the hotel didn't do well.

Just returned from my first trip to New York. We booked the New Yorker through Hayes and Jarvis (TUI UK) as part of a flight/hotel package. I was immediately impressed with the vast reception/ lobby area. Checking In was a painless process, warmly greeted by the staff. We requested a high level room and were given one on the 33rd Floor, with prime views of The Empire State building and Madison Square Garden. The exterior of the hotel was undergoing a face lift during our visit, with scaffolding obscuring part of the views, but for us, this was not an issue. The room itself was suitable for our week stay, although the bath had seen better days, only a minor point non the less. The beds were extremely comfortable, guaranteeing a great night sleep. We used the hotel's concierge service regularly and find the staff, in particular Anthony, very helpful in providing information of attractions, restaurants and transportation around the city. I would recommend the Tic Tock diner, for it's fast and tasty food, as well as Coopers Tavern for its wide choice of drinks and an incredible New York Strip Steak. Staff in both were friendly. In all, a great hotel in a prime location. Would happily visit again.

Looking at other reviews my experience was quite different, I was happy about everything at this hotel with one exception. The air conditioning was very noisy, cycling on and off with cold air periodically blasting out of a unit on the ceiling next to the bed. I turned off the AC at night because it was waking me up. But then it is hot of course... At least the windows open, but it was 80F outside at midnight in June... I expected a small room in Manhattan for what I paid, so no complaints there, free wifi is great, bathroom seemed to be pretty new, everything was clean, even comfortable pillows which is a rarety in hotels I find.

This place was pretty nice, not a lot of extras, but it worked for what I was there for. The conference I was in New York for, happened to be at the same hotel and it was really convenient. Definitely wish that it had bigger bathrooms, (I'm a bigger dude) but... was kind of nice that it had two separate bathrooms. Staying with three others that helped...There was also an employee protest/rally/march going on in the foyer area, which was interesting... So, if you were going to a seminar learning about labor protests/unionizing/etc. you'd have been in the right place to get a birds eye view... Now, other than that, it was a pretty satisfactory place to stay for business purposes.
