“Great staff...”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

The hotel is on a random block (which helps keep the price and noise down), but is close to everything. We walked to Central Park, Times Square, etc. The only time we took the subway or a cab was when it was raining.

The staff was friendly and energetic, even when we checked in at 11:00 pm. The woman working the bar/restaurant was great. Hopefully, she'll be promoted to the front desk soon!

The room was clean and super spacious by NYC standards. The bed and especially the pillows were very comfortable. My friend loved the "Zero%" shampoo and conditioner. I guess I haven't stayed in any newer hotels lately because I was pretty excited about there being an actual thermostat in the room and not just some buttons or dials on the radiator.

Truly enjoyed our 3 day stay at the TRYP. From the welcoming smiles at check we knew we were guests rather than numbers. The property is only a couple months old but staff were seasoned and professional. It was perhaps a 20-25 minute cab ride from the airport (LG) and is half a block from the Penn Station subway station so we loved the location. Room was spacious and comfortable and featured wood panelled flooring (so much better than carpet) and free wi-fi and a coffee maker for those of us who consider coffee a necessity. Modern amenities abound throughout. We had Tapas at the restaurant and were impressed with the variety, after a couple of rounds there is no need for dinner! Wait staff was attentive and prompt, we were
and you will be pleased. Of special note the breakfast buffet is superb. I cant tell in words how far superior it is to the "free" buffets at the chain hotels. Attractions nearby include the Empire State Building, Macy's and Madison Square Garden. We also walked to Times Square one evening, just a few blocks away.
There were many families staying during our visit so don't hesitate thinking this is just a new place for business travelers. To summarize we loved the location and the rooms but people make the difference and we never had less than a 5 star experience with anyone at the TRYP!
Ok one final thing and this may seem unimportant but the TRYP had 4 elevators so there was never any waiting. Just a personal thing but it's always nice to get a lift when you need one.

For a weekend in the city, TRYP Times Square South has set a delightful standard of style and sophistication! We arrived early Friday evening to find a lively crowd enjoying tapas and cocktails
In a most beautiful and eclectic lobby. They all seemed to be enjoying themselves so much, we quickly checked in and joined in the fun! Other standouts were the great service, delicious drinks,
The bountiful breakfast, friendly staff and smartly decorated rooms with extraordinary bathrooms! See you soon!! We found a gem!

I'm a bit reserved about giving this hotel a glowing review, but I have to say it does most things really well, and that's why the five-star review.

The location - is great - and not so great. It is a five minute walk from Penn Station - a real plus if you've come into the city from Newark Airport. Also it's a real plus as far as getting around the city. You are steps away from the A,C,E and 1,2,3 lines. Makes it so easy to zip around the city. The down side of the location: Don't expect to find the charm of the city on the doorstep of the hotel - the block is a bit gritty, and the area around Penn Station is busy, busy, busy. Just see the location as convenient, and plan to travel around a lot.

The hotel is new and trendy with a busy little lounge in the lobby. The rooms echo the trendy theme. Our room was very spacious with two queen beds, and a well thought out desk and closet area. A Keurig coffee maker is a nice touch. The bathroom was beautiful again in a trendy way.

Sleep quality was excellent. Bed and pillows were super comfy. I was surprised how quiet our room was considering we were on the second floor. We were at the back of the hotel, so that may have made a difference.

Service was a little mixed - I have to say every member of the staff was warm and welcoming. So friendly - I was really impressed. Downside of the service was that we had to wait over half an hour for some coffee to be brought to our room (it hadn't been replenished) The other service downside was that we returned once to the hotel at 5pm and our room still hadn't been made up yet. Other than these minor housekeeping issues, we were really happy with the service.

We received a great price on Travelzoo for this hotel. Consider it a new, trendy, budget-plus hotel. Not luxurious, but definitely fun and comfortable. We would absolutely stay here again, and recommend it as well.

Room Tip: Our room at the back was quiet.

I recently got to go back to New York city and work there for a week. The Tryp hotel was the closest to my client and I booked a week there. I enjoyed my stay and felt very safe as the hotel was next door to a police station. It was within 5 minutes walk to Penn Station, Macy's, Times Square, etc. The modern rooms reminded me of W or Aloft hotels and were very sleek and clean in design. Note there is no room service, however the Tapas bar below served great spanish cuisine with a NYC flare. The wait staff and bartender were friendly and attentive and I felt right at home.

We got a great rate on a premium room, which was huge by NYC standards with a King bed, sleeper sofa, 2 full baths and a kitchenette with fridge, sink and coffeemaker. Staff was friendly and helpful. The ACE train entrance at 35th and 8th is at the end of the street.

Lighting at the bed was inadequate and the 2 zone heating system seemed to only have one zone working, so one half of the room was cool, the other warm.

Would definitely recommend.

We wanted to stay at a hotel that was close to the Javits Convention Center where we were attending the IBS Hair Show. After researching several hotels, most were not very nice, very expensive, or a combination of both. I finally booked a room here through a deal from Travelzoo. The rooms are nice and clean. The front desk staff is very professional, and the bartender had good customer service. I would definately stay here again!
