From the second we arrived until second we left, the front desk staff was so extremely helpful. Hotel was modern, very clean. A very wonderful experience staying here start to finish.

I spent 3 nights here during Super Bowl weekend. The hotel is located in Chinatown, a 5 minute walk from the subway, so very convenient as far as transportation is concerned.
What struck me most was the kindness and helpfulness of the staff, really top notch!
The rooms are great, small as in any NY hotel, but like a boutique hotel they have that special touch that makes them special. The bathroom is nice, with a tub and nice large windows, spotless clean, like the entire hotel.
I did not have breakfast there, but it is included and served in the lobby.
I'd definitely go there again, bravi!

Howard Johnson Hotel is located in Chinatown, really close to Little Italy and Soho.
The location is ideal for short term stay and to explore downtown and Midtonw both easily reachable (Downtown 10 minutes walking distance).
3 subway stations situated in the premises makes this place really confortable to visit the whole city.
Rooms are clean, perhaps they may appear little but with this price you can't get better in Manhattan.
If required the hotel provides transportation service for the main airports. highly recommended as cheaper than a cab (and way cleaner).
decent breakfast and wi fi connection in the rooms and the lobby( included in the fee.)
Go definitely here for a week in the city

We had a trip with 10 people celebrating a b.d. We found the rates at this hotel reasonable, and all the staff are very helpful. Our rooms were very clean. We enjoyed the late evenings atop the roof to see the city night lights, or out front of the hotel to watch the world go by. Breakfasts were substantial for our daily outings. Had WIFI and also a computer in the lobby to stay connected. overall a great experience.

Room Tip: rooms _01 or _02 or _03 have great views of the Manhattan bridge. We had a room with double and a s...

Hi Spiely2014,

So nice to hear back from the BD group! I'm very glad to know that you enjoyed the hotel and that the group had a good time in NYC. As you know we are renovating our outdoor space area for breakfast and other activities, so maybe next time we will have more options for all of you besides the rooftop ( great view) and the hotel front. We truly enjoyed having such a fun group at HOJO SOHO.

Thank you for choosing us!

Kind Regards,

A very good Hotel: 5 min to metro by foot in Chinatown area, clean rooms, friendly multilingual (italian) staff, very available for every needings, cosy enviroment. The rooms were a little bit small, with no closet and the breakfast area (breakfast included) has only 4 tables for all the guests.

Good evening MauRec,

Thank you for this kind review!I'm happy to hear that you had a nice trip and a comfortable stay at Howard Johnson Manhattan Soho. We are ware of the limited space that we work with during the breakfast area, as you mention, and that is why we are expanding it to a better location that will be able to accommodate our guests in a more comfortable way. We hope to have the pleasure to see you again at HOJO.

Kind regards,
