The best location

This hotel is located just one block from Times Square. You can get to almost all New York main tourist attractions just by walking. The hotel staff is very nice and helpful and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. It's very affordable, so you get great value for the price.

Daughter's High School Graduation Trip

Pros: How close it was to time square and the restaurant next door with the amazing buffet.
Cons: Better lighting in the room. No light in the closet and the room lights were dim.
Location: Time Square Hard Rock Cafe
We took our daughter to New York as a high school graduation gift and if you are looking for a fancy hotel this one isn't it. However if you are looking for a nice comfortable place to sleep book this room; who needs to pay a resort fee for a room when you won't be spending time in a pool or a gym. No it didn't have a fridge or microwave in the room but there are two delis right next door. I have to have coffee the moment my feet hit the floor so not having a coffee pot in the room I thought I would die but I just walked right next door. The hotel is close to everything you need that's the best part; you are a block from time square. The only problem I had was that our room was on the front of the building and the outside noise was loud but hey this is New York. The room was clean; the elevators worked and the air conditioned worked. I would stay at the hotel again; you are not in NYC to see a hotel room anyway. :- D

Hotel St. James

Book this room because of the price and location alone. Everything else is just a bonus. Not the nicest or fanciest, but if you're only looking for a place to stay then book this hotel!!! There's a place right next door called Dunhill Cafe and they sell amazing coffee!!! :)

Charm but nothing thrilling!

Pros: Location
Cons: Updates, maintenance, add amenitities. Coffee make in lobby or put with, microwave & fridge in day room for guests to utilize along with staff.
Location: Close to Rockerfeller Center, Time Square, Radio City Music Hall, subway, restaurants and shopping!
I expected the hotel to be old and have character but really. Price included noting no coffee, bottled water or even a microwave. Had computer but no printer? Great central location but who wants to have to go outside to get coffee every morning? The bed was like sleeping on concrete, they had patched a door and there was a hole on the floor near the bed closest to the window. Blinds didn't go all the way down to cover window ac unit and there was no way to control heat (room was like an over!). Great restaurants close by but no way to heat up leftovers to save for a show or other attractions. Fit the budget but disappointed because we expected more!

New York Trip

Pros: Joey the receptionist and the fact it was close to Time Square
The hotel was alittle disappointing. One elevator did not work. It was a very old hotel. There was no heat or air in the room at the time I stayed which was the second week in November. There was a man concierge that was not helpful at all. In fact he was rude.
