Hotel Stanford

Reviewed 27 March 2014

Hotel is basic but clean. You don't be in your room much anyway but It was still nice enough. The staff on reception were so helpful and the doormen when very attentive. The breakfast was ok but it's continental and it was included in the price of the room and it was a good way to start the day. It's in a great location for shops and bars. I will definitely stay there again when I go back I didn't want to leave!!

Excellent hotel for our stay. Staff friendly and really helpful. Location is superb and breakfast was a great plus, filled us up for the morning. Beds super comfy and room good size for NYC. There with 2 friends and the staff got us as near as possible which was great. Lift is fine we never had to wait long. Door men were exceptionally helpfully.

Location is this hotels biggest seller followed closely by the staff, they could not be nicer people and were only too willing to do anything for us. 2 minute walk to macy's and empire state and 4 minute walk to penn station. Rooms are small but perfect for nyc as we didn't spent much time in the hotel but the rooms can be a bit noisy from the air con. Breakfast was perfect ,tea coffee bagels muffins and croissants, perfect start to the day and a good filler till lunch (recommend speedy's for lunch, just on the corner across the road). Overall I would highly recommend this hotel , only downfalls being the lift(too slow) and the bar (empty and overpriced)

Room Tip: Queen room was small. Hate too see how small a standard room is

Situated near the Empire State Building, I would definitely recommend this hotel!

I stayed here recently with my girlfriend for five days. It's a nice hotel, the outside is covered in scaffolding so I was a bit anxious at first, but we would be pleasantly surprised. The bellman was out like a light to help us in with our bags and our check-in was quite swift. The staff are very friendly and quick to offer advice, info a map of the area. Before our trip we asked for a Empire State Building view and were told by reception that they would try their best, we got a really nice view of the Empire State Building, so were definitely please with that!

We were on the 10th floor. The rooms are average, the wallpaper could probably be upgraded and there was a noticeable crack in the corner of our floor length mirror that had been taped over, but apart from that I do not have a complaint about the room. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning did it's job. The TV in the room had a great selection of channels and there is a safe provided in the room. There was construction going on in the hotel at that time and the hotel apologised for any noise disturbances, but we never heard any noise and our room and the environment was very quiet.

There is only one lift/elevator in this hotel for over 10 floors and sometimes we had to wait a bit to use it, but that would definitely not put me off using the hotel again. The hotel is located in Korea Town (one street) and there are some amazing hotels and bars nearby. There is a subway station right outside and Macy's and JCP Pennys are a 5-10 minute walk away.

Room Tip: Ask for an Empire State Building room

The main thing you're paying for is location - you're right by Broadway and round the corner from the Empire State Building. If you're just looking for a place to sleep at night, it's absolutely fine. My room was a bit dated, but with a brand new bathroom and the bed was comfy. A nice powerful hot shower and for the first time ever, a hotel hairdryer that actually has enough power to dry hair!
There are no instructions provided for e.g. the heating (my room was boiling for the first night), but if you ring down to reception, they can explain things over the phone.
There are no in-room tea or coffee making facilities (but you get a jug of water and glasses in the fridge).
The cafe is a bit spartan to look at, but the breakfast is OK - bagels, pastries, muffins, orange juice, milk, tea and coffee. I had it every morning as it was included, but there are plenty of coffee shops around if you want something a bit more substantial.
Even though there was a notice up saying there might be a bit of noise from renovations, I didn't hear anything (although I was out most of the day every single day).

I've been to New York a number of times and decided to give Hotel Stanford a try, I was not disappointed. Excellent location, situated just around the corner from Macy's and Madison Square Garden, with a subway just outside. I was most impressed. My room was a good size and had everything I needed. The breakfast was quite basic offering a selection of pastries but if you do fancy the full works there's a diner called Tick Tok next door to the New Yorker Hotel (opposite MSG) which I visit whenever in NY, the pancakes are heavenly! All in all good value for money, I would recommend!

This hotel was well located in NYC and just a 3 minute walk to Macys. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was included in the price but you would not be missing out to skip this as it really wasn't great. There were only bagels croissants or cupcakes available to eat, I would have liked a selection of fruit and or cereal. The room where breakfast was served was not the most attractive and you certainly would not be inclined to delay and chat over coffee! Saying that though the hotel itself was good value and the staff were great. There is a small bar area, not sure about the prices but I did have a coke which cost $5, I thought that expensive.

Room Tip: We stayed in an executive suite which did not cost much more than a normal room but gave us a lot of...
