“Fantastic hotel, great value and very friendly staff!”
Reviewed 18 September 2010

I stayed at the New Yorker in February this year with my partner who accompanied me whilst I scoped out the galleries as part of my university course. The staff made us feel very welcome, which was a real treat after the hassle at the airport.
Our room was small, but well decorated and everything we needed was available. The room and the en-suite were both very clean. The only down-side I would say - our toilet was very noisy, which woke either one of us up at night.
We only ate at one of the hotel's restaurants on one of the nights, when the weather was truly terrible (Worst snow I've ever experienced!!!). This was good value and great service too.
I loved the fact the hotel seemed to be lively most of the time. Lots of people from all over the world in that expansive lobby! Truly a wonderful experience... Only made more special by my partner who proposed that week.
Oh, great location too!

With regards to the other reviews, I dont really agree. You can get so much better in New York for the same price. So all those reviews of "brilliant" and "excellent place" and "the best location",... I just don't really understand.

The hotel is Art Deco, now, I personally find this positive if has been renovated since that period, which I am not sure the New Yorker has. The corridors are dark, its all made in a wrong-brown colour, every wall and corner is chipped, bumped or otherwise has marks of heavy use. Paint is falling of the elevator doors, the furniture is tired looking, and I could go on and on. Furthermore, the corridors are not well lit. All these things make this place look like a sad place. Its not a positive feeling you get in this hotel. It looks a bit like some of those hotels in the movies where all sorts of wrong and illegal things happen, not positive. This then goes on to the room that again looks old. Well, our bathroom had received what looked to be hundreds of coats of paint, but paint does not hide everything. Again, it all looks old and dirty.

Now with the above said, I do not know if this hotel is clean, because of all the marks everywhere it gives the hotel a dirty look, add to this the brown carpets etc, and you really do not want to know what is in them. I did not feel comfortable in this hotel at all. They can have all the good cleaning staff in the world, this hotel still looks like a dirty old skanky place.

It needs a complete overhaul. If you want something that looks fresh and renovated, go to a Hilton Garden or something in that category. There is one down the street (34th I believe) actually which is so much nicer than the New Yorker and has a better location, for about the same money. I will certainly use the Hilton instead for my future New York trips.

Furthermore, I got my room from Hotwire and it was already 20% off. I dont know how true that is, but I even found that price too much for what it was.

Business centre? Yes downstairs in the horrible looking cellar where you can buy internet time with your credit card. It looks so dodgy I wouldnt use my credit card there. Second of all, nowadays, most places have free wireless.

Location? Everyone seems to rave about the location. Again, there are so many hotels uptown, downtown, midtown, whatever you want, so I think the location is alright only. 8th Avenue is not a brilliant place, not a lot to do on 8th Avenue, except if you want to visit the local strip joints.

I personally do not understand how people can find this place brilliant. When we were checking in, several people were complaining about their rooms, and I second that, this place is not worth the money, go somewhere else.

We stayed at the New Yorker Hotel from 31 August to 4 September and really enjoyed our stay. Given the previous reviews we were expecting a small room, but were pleasantly surprised: The room was large enough for our requirements and the decor was of a good standard. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and polite. The hotel is located in the midtown arear, with the Empire State building, Macy's and fashion street very close. Time Square was a walkable distance.

Our next stop was Boston and as we didn't have a car, we needed to use public transport to get from NYC to Boston. We used the Bolt Bus company which cost us USD39 for two single tickets, which left from the side of the New Yorker Hotel... very convenient.

We loved NYC and cant wait to go back and will be happy to re-book the New Yorker Hotel.

If you planning a trip to New York Stay here (flights with Continental, cheap and really good, was worried but just as good as Virgin)

Stayed in the New Yorker hotel for two night before flying on to las Vegas. Have previously stayed in the Marriott and Double Tree on times Square which are also good but come with a high price.

When I return to New York next I would 100% stay at this hotel. Have no worries or doubts. The hotel is in a perfect location only a short walk to Macys and Times Square.

The Hotel, rooms were really clean and modern, with everything working perfectly. The staff at the hotel are also very kind and helpful. Security at the lift checking your room keys before you go up to your room was a piece of mind.

The diner attached to the hotel is perfect to get breakfast before you start your day.

Perfect location. Our rooms had a view of the Empire State building and the hotel was just 2 minutes from Macy's. Being just a few minutes walk from Penn station made transfer from the airport very easy and there were 3 different Metro train lines that were within a few minutes walk. Times square was just 10 minutes or so away.
The room was on the small side but for the price, $250 a night, that was to be expected.
Best of all was the attached Tick Tock Diner which had an extensive menu and served food 24 hours a day at very reasonable prices.

Just back from 5 nights in the New Yorker. We stayed on the 34th floor which did have some pretty amazing and vertigo inducing views which was good, however the small room was pretty basic and would certainly benefit from a decorating job. It wasnt that there was anything particularly wrong with the room but its just missing a bit of attention to detail. The bathroom has some paint missing in places, the tiles needed re-grouted, whilst the carpet in the bedroom was fairly worn. All irrelevant details in the grand scheme but prevents the hotel and room from being luxurious. The fact the rooms are small was incidental to be honest, we dont need a big room to sleep and freshen up in. All staff were attentive and friendly, the rooms and hotel was clean throughout and both the Tick Tock diner and Coopers tavern were conviniently handy and good quality (although didnt eat in the Tavern). With just a little more loving care this very traditional hotel could recoup some former glory, but isnt quite there yet. Value wise however it probably couldnt be bettered, it was one of the cheapest and as a result I reckon there is far worse hotels in NYC which would be more expensive.

Arrived at the New Yorker Hotel on 29th August 2010 for 5 nights (arrived from Newark airport which we sailed through without any hassle, much better than JFK so if you can get a flight into Newark make sure you do its alot better and you drive in from New Jersey so can see the skyline on your way in, great start to the holiday!) was greeted by Tony on the front desk, advised us our room wasnt ready yet but we werent too bothered we was in New York, they gave us visitors passes to use the downstairs toilets to freshen up which was good because atleast you know anyone isnt walking into the hotel or the toilets!! Went back later on to see if our room was ready and was advised it wasnt but the lady on reception (she didnt have a name badge but she made us feel very welcome and was really really helpful) gave us another room and helped us with the safety deposit box. She also advised us we needed to leave a $200 something deposit for the room which the travel agents didnt tell us about, but she sorted that for us ;) which we really appreciated as we hadnt budgeted for this deposit.

When we finally got to the room, first thing i done was pull the curtains over to check the view, and yes it was of the Empire State Building!! We could also see Madison Square Garden and a little bit of the Chrystler Building. The room was small yes but i thought nice and cosey. The beds were really comfy and 2 pillows each which were also very comfy and best of all, no sign of bed bugs! The rooms had flat screen tvs, ice buckets aswell which came in handy as NY was very hot when we were there and on each floor is vending machine for sweets and drinks. You even got new yorker hotel toiletteres. Maids were in everyday and done a great job. This is the perfect hotel if you are wanting to stay in NY. Few blocks down is Times Square and in the opposite direction Greenwich Village is only straight down the road (but we got the bus to Greenwich Village and coming back the bus stopped right outside, buy a map from the gift shop downstairs which lists all the bus routes and were the bus stops are of the bus you need to be on, if you do decide to get the bus they are nothing like England, you need $2.25 exactly in quarters ONLY. Overall a great 2nd trip to NY (last time i stayed in the Edison Hotel i have wrote a review on here for that also) and the New Yorker made it even more special! Thank you very much!

P.S if you email the hotel before you go, ask them to upgrade you to an empire state view, its an extra $30 a night and so worth it (some ppl get it free but were not all that lucky)!!
