“Location is excellent!”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

The four stars I have given are for the location and the staff. I can't deny that the hotel is in need of update but for the amount of time you actually spend in a hotel room and the price of the room that we paid for a good location in New York, it is hard to beat. They were working on the reception area whilst we were there but there was no disruption to our stay.

We had a good size room, two queen size beds for two of us with a microwave, fridge, "kitchen" sink (useful when so eone is in the bathroom) and coffee maker which can be used for tea too.

There was a walk in wardrobe too with a free room safe.

It's a couple of short blocks from Central Park, there's a subway at the end of the block, 5th Avenue is within easy walking distance and a really good deli just across the road from the hotel. Angelos restaurant is just a couple of units down and is in the guide books as good for pizzas. It was! There is also a Starbucks next to the deli which has free wifi rather than the hotel wifi which they charge for per computer/phone by the day.Nearly all tne Starbucks in New York have free wifi but not all so check the sign by the door before you buy your coffee, or tea in our case!

The area felt very safe for two females with some expensive hotels within a short distance from this hotel. I would prefer to stay in this area rather than the very busy Times Square area. The staff were very friendly and I am happy to recommend it with the above caviat.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor or a room which is not at the front- it is a busy road.

we have just returned from staying at the Salisbury and this was our first time. The location is great and the room we had was huge. Hotel is in need of a lick of paint but was very comfortable. The only downside was the cockroaches in the bathroom.

We have stayed at the Salisbury everytime we go to NYC if we can. It is frequently full so we have to stay elsewhere. We love it. The location is super and a couple of doors from Angelos ...one of the best Pizza pies in NYC. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms are large and clean. Once you stay there one time it will become your favorite hotel in NYC too.

Booking on Hotwire...we were looking for a moderately priced 3star in the heart of Manhattan for our trip. We found in with the Salisbury.

Just a few short blocks to Central Park and across the street from Carnegie Hall, this older hotel was within walking distance to just about everywhere we wanted to.

We were upgraded to a two room suite (just for being nice and asking for a "nicer room" I think) which my NY standards was decadent. The bedroom alone was double-sized for a typical NY establishment, then add a large sitting room with a couch, chairs, second TV plus refrigerator and microwave. We wished we were staying longer!

The decor and furnishings are dated and the small lobby was under renovation during our stay...but you simply couldn't beat the combination of location, price, and courteous staff.

We've stayed in New York several times, but this time we travelled with our 21 year old son and 17 year old daughter. We booked a one bedroom suite at the Salisbury at a very reasonable price and we were not disappointed. The room suited us perfectly. It was huge. Like a small apartment practically. The location was excellent, on 57th between 6th and 7th. A 10-12 minute walk to Times Square. Hotel staff were courteous and helpful. Yes, the carpets and painting could use a refresh but that was minor for us. If you need something completely perfect with everything shiny, maybe this isn't the place for you. But if you want a nice hotel, great location, excellent price and some space for some adults, then stay here. The Wifi cost is a little expensive though! 10$ per device.

Like many previous reviews have said, the Salisbury is well located for your NY stay. What it does have that suited us ( a 19 and 15 year old) was two doubles and a pullout bed in a separate room. The pullout mechanism didn't work so they kindly put a single bed in as well. The rooms are so big anyhow! Staff were very helpful throughout and it was good value for your dollar. The only negative was the lack of a bar but then again it is linked to the church next door. If like us you come back for your shower and have walked enough during the day, Angelos pizzeria just two doors down comes recommended

I stayed at this hotel on my first ever visit to NYC. It is located on 57th street, between 5th and 7th avenue. This was a great location, as it was within short walking distance to Central Park, Times Square, The Top of Rock and Broadway theaters. The hotel room appeared dated, but that is the way NYC is. No free wifi is available, its about $5 per day and the house computer is pay internet as well. If you need to access the internet, I'd suggest going to the Starbuck which is across the street. There is a continental breakfast buffet that is available everyday from 7:00-11:00am on the third floor in the dining room. Staff will deliver a notice of the breakfast to your room. There is a deli a couple doors down that offers great food options, as well as a market across the street beside Starbucks which offers a large selection of buffet style hot food. I would stay here again.
