My wife and I just returned home from our stay in the French Quarters. What a great place to stay, if plans require you to stay in or around Times Square! Neither one of us cares a bit for the glow, the roar, and the fervent pace of tourist-centric frenzy in the Square. A conference at the nearby Marriott Marquis required us to stay nearby, however. TripAdvisor came through yet again with an excellent recommendation.
Located on W 46th Street, between 8th and 9th Ave, the hotel is only a 3 - 5 minute walk to Times Square, yet is far enough removed from it that it is entirely possible to escape the crowds.
Our room (#204) was well-appointed, with beautiful, comfortable linens and a nice bathroom. A lot of thought obviously went into the decoration of the room. The room was a bit on the narrow side, however. This was solved by storing the luggage racks behind one of the chairs in the room.
Nights were very quiet, even with the lively Bourbon Street Bar two floors below us. Never once did bar nor street noise disturb us during the night. We did frequent the bar during our stay, taking two meals there. The food was well-prepared and reasonably-priced. There are many restaurants near the hotel, as well. We did not have the opportunity to try them, but appreciated the convenience of having them there.
The service was excellent, save for one small error. Room service forgot to replace our used coffee cups one day. Other than that, however, they serviced the rooms well. The front desk was helpful and friendly, too, both with check-in / check-out and in providing directions around the city.
We'll likely look to return to this hotel if we need to return to the Times Square area.
