Room was clean but tiny and needing to be updated

Pros: Location was fine--close to Times Square and felt fairly safe.
Cons: Quicker check in, updated tv's, larger room, new shower curtains, better breakfast--pretty much ran out of food after 9:00 am which was disappointing.
Location: Close to Times Square, right off 8th, walking distance to theater
Check in took a LONG time--45 minutes waiting in the tiny lobby by a front door that kept the lobby very cold. Got to the room 45 minutes later that we wanted to only to find it very small. Bed was fine--TV had a terrible picture. Bathroom was freezing with no heat in it. Shower curtain needed to be replaced but the shower, sink, and toilet were all fine. All in all, the room was just ok and a little disappointing.

Big Apple

Pros: The proximity to Times Square
Cons: The breakffast
Location: Within walking distance to Times Square
Rooms were on the small side but decent. Super close to Times Square. Hotel staff held our luggage because we arrived four hours before check-in. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to our next trip. Will be staying here again.

Great location, good buy

Location: At. 39th and 8th this hotel is a few minutes from the theatre district and "restaurant row."
Just a few blocks from the theatre district, this hotel has a helpful staff, clean rooms, and offers a complimentary full breakfast. Would definitely go back!

Small but comfortable and quiet

They have only four rooms on each floor and it is very quiet though it is located in the middle of very active part of the city. The bed was very comfortable.

Close to Times Square

Hotel is super close to the action of Times Square. The rooms are extremely small with very little closet space. Hotel staff was very helpful at recommending restaurants and giving directions. Will definitely be staying here again

Birthday trip to the city

The room is smaller than some, but fitting for NYC. We were happy with our room and the staff was very helpful. It is near Times Square and subway which was perfect as well as being within walking from Penn Station. We would definitely stay there again.

Excellent location

Pros: Location, attentive staff, urgency when needed, overall comfort and cleanliness
We booked a last minute trip to NY for three nights. Excellent reception by Rafeal. He gave us a map and told us how to break apart our days to pack in as much as possible with a map and how to use public transportation to get around. Room was small, but larger than I expected after seeing other reviews... It's NY, what do you expect? Nice room layout made it easy to keep organized. Bathroom was updated. Only issue was the hair dryer didn't work, but after reporting someone was at the room within five minutes and completely replaced it. Room service was excellent. Never had to ask for clean towels, bed was made everyday. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was better than expected for an included breakfast bar. That room was tiny and had lots of guests, so we made trays and took them back to our room every morning. Had a waffle maker, sausage links, fresh fruit, yogurts, bagels, cereal, toast, eggs, coffee and juice... Etc. front entry felt safe and was locked after 10pm, you had to use a room key after that. Subway was two blocks away, time square and Rockefeller center were about 3-4 blocks away (easy walk with a 5 year old). I expected to be kept up by noises all night but surprisingly didn't hear much at all. Maybe it was from being tired of walking! Lots of little shops and food placed close by. Check out was easy, no unexpected charges. We really enjoyed our stay!
