We have stayed at the Stanford Hotel quite a few years ago and I swore I would not want to go back. However, this time was different. The rooms have been updated and for the price it was perfect. My husband and I only stayed one night June 18/19. It's location is ideal. Close to Penn Station, Herald Square, Macy's, Jack's, Manhattan Mall. Subway is right there if you want to go uptown or downtown. The room size is excellent compared to other smaller hotels we have stayed in. We chose this hotel because we didn't want to spend a fortune on a one nights stay....would rather spend my money on shopping...lol. The hotel staff was very friendly...even recalled my name up various comings/goings. The lobby is small and appears little tired....don't let that fool you. The rooms have been updated and are very nice. The bed was a little hard for my liking but after a day of walking around it didn't matter. The carpeting is new & kept clean. The bathroom is very nicely appointed with granite counters and a modern Kohler toilet. The tiles were modern. The water pressure in the shower was good. It even had a curved shower curtain for more room in the tub. Linens and towels were good. Our room came with a bar fridge....we bought water and cold drinks at Jack's down the street....a great dollar store with loads of stock. There is a small business centre on the second floor near the 1986 Piano Lounge. The 1986 Lounge doubles as a complimentary coffee/tea/water/cookies with large projection TV screen for a mini afternoon break. (We were there when World Cup Soccer was on.) The common bathroom next to the 1986 Lounge is a surprise up entering....very modern and clean. There is only one elevator for the hotel...small and little slow, but not horrible unless you lack a bit of patience. The Hotel is Definitely better than i recall & expected. I would recommend this hotel to family & friends. Will defiantly come back. The hotel is rated a 2 Star due to it being small and maybe because of the small elevator and small selection of breakfast items, no pool or fitness center. The Hotel Stanford is definitely on my short list of hotels to stay at in NYC. Great value for what we wanted!!
