my husband and i stayed at the hotel metro from 5th june to the 10th june. we checked in fine and we were upgraded to a king size from a deluxe double. the room was massive ! we had friends coming on the next flight and they had a standard double . these rooms are very small with just enough room to walk around the bed. but then you dont spend much time in your room. the rooms are spotless and the beds are very comfy.the rooftop bar is stunning with a good view of the empire state building. the breakfast is also very good with a choice of toast,cereal,bagels,doughnuts and muffins.the staff at this hotal were very helpful and polite. i must recommend the new york waterway boat trip which was amazing ! ask the receptionist about the details as i dont think its on any tourist leaflets but she ( ana i think ) recomended it to us. it lasts about 1.30 hours but the sight of new york from the water is stunning and you go round to the statue of liberty as well. also it was nowhere near as packed as some of the other boat trips. you get a free shuttle to the boat as well and after we got another free shuttle down to ground zero.the hotel overall is a very good one and its within walking distance to everything. the only downside was the building work at the back of the hotel which woke us some mornings but it wasnt a real problem.overall we had a brill time but its very tiring . we did all the main tourist things times square , empire state building etc you have to do these , they are amazing especially at night ! we also found it very expensive aswell so take plenty of money ! and thats just the food and drink ! but i would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this property for 3 nights. It's a good location. Very easy walk to Times Square, but not right in it. Within walking distance from the hotel is a wonderful Korean restaurant, a coffee/bakery shop, convenience store, 2 Irish Pubs and a subway stop. Only 1.5 blocks from Herald Square and Macy's.

We were upgraded from a double to queen room. Room was clean and comfortable. Aside from the bed, it had a desk with chair, lounge chair with small table, a chest of drawers, closest with safe. AC worked really well. Bathroom was clean. Did not include a tub but the shower stall was ample. Only blemish I saw in the room was some paint peeling on the ceiling in the corner of the shower stall. Water pressure was great and the hot water was hot.

We were on the 4th floor and found the room and hallways to be very quiet.

The hotel is serviced by 2 elevators which ran fast.

The hotel offers complimentary continental breakfast which was good as far as continental breakfasts go and a rooftop bar, open only to guests and with a great view of the Empire State Building. The rooftop bar is a rather expansive space with ample seating. The hotel also provides complimentary coffee and tea, 24/7 and also has a nice exercise facility. There is also a restaurant in the hotel, but we did not eat there.

This hotel provides a good location, several amenities and a few good extras (breakfast, rooftop bar, free coffee/tea and free newspapers) at a fair price.

My wife and I stayed there for four nights in May. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a double-room that was a bit small but very clean.The location is super as a base for sight-seeing - either walking or on the subway. The roof terrace was a terric place to enjoy a cool drink after hard days sight seeing. Fifteen-minutes free internet in the business centre was a life-saver given that we travelled BA during the cabin crew strike. Thoroughly recommended!

My Husband and I stayed there for 4 nights. Room was a bit small but very clean mind you it is only for sleeping and having a shower etc as you will be out most of the days. Loved the location, you are basically central to alot of attractions. The roof terrace is fab, we sat there having a beer looking at the Empire State Building. There is a subway only yards away, Macys is in view and walking ditsance. I would stay here again and recomend it to others.

I stayed with some friends and we had the room with the 3 beds. it was perfect for us and affordable when split 3 ways. The rooms were clean and were a fairly decent size. The beds were comfortable and they kept us stocked with the towels. The staff was helpful except one guy who was a bit short with us. However in general everyone was friendly. The front desk guy gave us a local map with the subways and local attractions The continental breakfast was well stocked. We didn't eat at the restaurant or try the roof top bar as there were so many other options in NY. We could walk to so many places 34th street ( shopping) and very convenient to the subways..The cab ride from la Guardia averaged ~$30- so not bad.
Complaints: The elevator and hallways were hot. The shuttle service was full when I tried to book the night before, but this may not be their fault. It was a bit noisy at night with the traffic, but I was so tired that I dosed off pretty quickly. Would stay there again.

Very good location and central to tourist attractions. The hotel is welcoming and clean & comfortable with good facilities including complimentary wi-fi and continental breakfast. The art deco theme really works for the hotel. It was also nice to have a roof top terrace to sit out and enjoy the lovely weather. A definate recommendation.
