We stayed in the Novotel Times Square between 30th April and 4th May as part of our honeymoon in the USA.
The hotel is located right on Broadway and 4 blocks north of Times Square - perfect location for first timers in NYC. The entrance is on 52nd W and Broadway and its really easy to find. We flew into Newark and it was only about 30mins and a $70 taxi ride away.
We arrived early at the hotel (check in was 3pm), and the receptionist advised us that our room wasn't ready and that they didn't want us to change rooms because the view from our room was too good. We checked our bags and went for a quick drink in the bar until our room was ready. The hotel has recently been refurbished and the bar had a magnificent view of Times Square and Broadway - including a fantastic roof terrace which is well worth a cocktail or two on. The drinks aren't cheap by any stretch of the imagination - $30 for a two drink round including tip... but it is New York.
I'm glad we waited for our room, the view was SPECTACULAR!! We were in room 2110 (21st floor) and could see Times Square and Broadway in all its glory! The room its self was clean and very modern. The bathroom was a very high standard and the bed was at least a Super King Size! I woke up at 4:30am to find my wife siting on the chaise lounge just looking out onto the NYC view in front of us.
I've seen a few reviews about the length of time for breakfast, however as we stayed on a room only basis this was not an issue. There were plenty of breakfast places in close proximity to the hotel - including a McDonalds directly below on Broadway.
The only downside was on checkout, the receptionist said we had drinks on our room which needed to be settled. As we paid cash for all our drinks we knew this was false and challenged it. The receptionist asked if he found the receipt if he could charge it to my credit card.... this was abruptly refused! The hotel agreed to waiver this, however it kind of left a sour taste in our mouths.
Overall we would highly recommend this hotel and we'd definitely consider staying here next time we're in New York.
