“Superb Christmas Break”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Excellent Hotel, superb location. Really friendly staff, especially the doormen. Had corner room with dual aspect of 54th Street and Broadway. Room spacious and clean, touch dark due to limited lighting but not really a problem. Large double bed, very comfortable. Bathroom bright and great shower. Used small basement gym on three occasions - quite fine. Complimentary breakfast very simple but we were not expecting anything more so fine.
Observations: No Flags outside, Ameritania Hotel external Illuminated Sign not full lit (attention to detail!), No Christmas decorations - bit of a surprise; bathroom door opened very close to the wc! Could have done with some more drawer space in room.
Otherwise really ticked all the boxes - thank you

When we initially arrived we had an issue regarding our room type. We booked a deluxe king room but they only had queen standard rooms left. We questioned this as we had made the reservation months back. Didn't really get a great answer but we settled for the queen room with the promise of a deluxe room for the rest of our stay. As always I judge a hotel on how they respond to issues rather than any issues we have as however good a hotel or restaurant is they make mistakes. From that point the Ameritania couldn't do enough for us, the room we got for the rest of our stay was fantastic, it was street side and was large, warm and comfortable. They gave us a few extras which really made up for the early mistake. The location is fantastic, only a few blocks from either central park or times square and 2-3 mins from a subway stop. Would definitely recommend this hotel however would advise maybe calling the day before you arrive to confirm your reservation.

Room Tip: I would pay the extra $30 a night for the deluxe king, after experiencing both the standard queen an...

Room sizes are not small and have separate ensuite and closet with a safe. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The rooms have minor problems such as a sticking bathroom door and toilet that kept refilling. Located 3 minutes walk to either Times Square or Central Park. The doormen are awesome as is Robert in the breakfast room. We stayed 2 weeks and got free wifi and breakfasts. Several subway stations within 5 minutes walk. Overall, better value than most other hotels in New York City. Highly recommended,

We stayed in this Hotel for 8 nights over Thanksgiving, the first room we were given was tiny and we moved to a larger room after the first night, no problems changing room and they even moved us whilst we were out. The hotel staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were clean, had a great shower and comfy beds. The corriders were a bit gloomy and could do with a brighter colour and everything in the rooms was oversided from the mirrors to the light, the rooms are small and with better use of space they could be really great. The location is fantastic, near to the Park, Broadway, Subways and close but far enough away from Times Sq to miss fighting through the crowds. I would stay at the Ameritania again.

Ideal location, staff friendly and helpful.

We booked a deluxe room due to requiring two beds. Room was on the 7th floor. When we walked in there was a lovely full length mirror but could not be used as no lighting close by so was dark part of the room. Only other mirror was in the bathroom.

We reported door could not be locked inside and maintenance said they would send someone to look. It was never repaired.

Found the room a bit too dark but was not a problem as for us as it was a base in new york.

I asked about wifi and the helpful receptionist gave me a password so did not have to pay.

I would recommend this hotel and being a travel agent have booked two other customers in there.

All in all lovely stay, nothing too much trouble with the staff

Excellent location, literally 10m off of Broadway and 5 minute walk from the park and square. Rooms were clean, modern and spacious, however thats as good as it gets. Staff were quick to get rid of you, Wifi is charged at $15 a day and if you ask the hotel porters to get you a cab they contact their "friend" who is much more expensive than an ordinary yellow cab.

What a little gem of a hotel the Ameritania is. Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of December and found it to be perfect. The location of the hotel is perfect for walking to Broadway, Times Square, Central Park etc. Our room on the 8th floor was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. All staff from Doormen, Reception and Cleaners were very helpful and pleasant and very willing to assist should you need assistance. Should we visit New York again we would certainly stay at the Ameritania.
