“Weekend City Break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

To end my UK brother&family's vacation to the US, we decided to close with a visit to NYC...and we could not be happier with my selection of the Best Western Premier. From my first phone inquiry regarding rooms and availability, to being politely greeted at our arrival and check-in, and culminating in a delightful yet all to brief stay, the staff was always personable, attentive, considerate, and mindful of their guests.
The rooms' green/purplish décor may be somewhat modernistic but I think it fits well given the hotels short 2yr existence...defiantly not boring and dated. There is no denying that the room size may suffer from some economy of scale, but they are all clean, comfortable, stocked with amenities, and very inviting. Those same words also apply to the bathroom, but I must also note that I truly adored the adjustable shower...could only wish to have one in my home.
This hotel offered all of the associated comforts and benefits of many of the large upper class chains, but seemed to provide them in a more homey manner. They offer a concierge service, weight room, complimentary refreshments, and quaint in-house bar, unfortunately it is only open until 11pm. In trying to find a more family friendly hotel another truly appreciative nicety provided with our stay was the free and quite delectable breakfast buffet, which only saved $$ and time in planning our days' NYC activities.
I could probably continue with a few more paragraphs given my delight of this hotel(having not even touched on its central location & convenience), however doing so would only make my previous words seem redundant. In truth I second guessed even leaving this glowing recommendation for fear that this little gem in the city might be consumed by the masses, leaving me with some concern should I find my way back to NYC.

Great Stay,
K. Gary P.

Two adults and two teenagers in a double room was tight, no doubt about it. Smallest hotel room I have ever seen but it is NY and they say they are all small. Great location. Easy walk to Times Square and Broadway. Subway station nearby and Amtrak station only a few blocks away. Good bar across the street (Irish bar of some kind). Tio Pio restaurant next door not worth it. Too many good places to eat in NY. VERY friendly front desk staff and kitchen staff in free breakfast area. Decent free breakfast with hot stuff that rotated daily. Felt safe walking between times square and this hotel at night.

Very nice room, very close to times square and all the action. my biggest complaint is the rooms are Extremely! small but your in new York! so if traveling with family pack light because there is barely any room for your luggage in the room. Also, the bathroom was very small but clean, fresh. I Would Stay here Again.

The hotel is in a very good location, awesome bathroom, tasty breakfast with a large choice of meals. Very friendly staff, especially Andre in the reception and the baggage guy Lou. The only con is that a room is quite small.

Very pleasant stay. Lovely choices for breakfast, and good. Would stay here again. Not far from the subways if needed, and close to points of interest if you would like to walk. Rooms a bit small but very comfortable and clean.
