The best concept hotel by far!! After sleepless nights of trying to find a place to stay in NYC, I breathed a sigh of relief upon arriving at Yotel, Times Square, NY. Total newbies to the city but as a hospitality employee for over 10 years, my standards are high when it comes to choosing my own accommodation. Yotel was my most perfect choice yet and very fitting for the glam city vacation. Conveniently placed a stones throw from Times Square, we were within easy reach of everything. The closest subway station was either Times Square (corner of 7th) or Penn Station (corner of 8th), all walking distance along 42nd.
The check-in was self service and a great concept, the room was clean and bright, compact and very New York, the bathroom was sleek, sexy and very smartly designed. Everything was very cleverly designed and engineered including the retractable bed. I asked in the pre arrival email for an additional mattress pad as older reviews led me to belief the mattress was that of a futon, which was not true. The bed was very comfy and linens crisp. My expectations were met. This is a great hotel if your are a technology freak, a sucker for modern concepts and want to be in the heart of Manhattan. The concept is pretty much self service, so stay away if you expect the hotel to smother you or help you to open your suitcase because you lost the key for lock. This is a hotel designed for people who are self sufficient and seasoned travellers. Cabin crew are all around should you get into difficulty but we didn't need them at all.
The hotel has a party vibe on weekends, so if your a prude, or party pooper, look away......there's a popular bar on the main level which may be off-putting for the narrow minded, we didn't mind it and it certainly didn't disturb us in the room (level 10).. Would highly recommend Yotel and if I return to NYC, I would consider one of suites with hot tub we saw below us (so jealous)...the non hassle place to stay..thumbs up!
