good location

Pros: clean and helpfull
Cons: nothing
Location: theatres, restaurant and other activities close by.
It was fine, except for the shuttle service you arranged. I waited 1 hr at La G and than the driver told me he could not get to the hotel but would drop me off 3 blocks away, which turned out to be 10 blocks!! Than they were 45 minutes late to pick me up, so I had to get a cab to the La G airport. I feel I am due a refund of this super(not so!!) shuttle!!!

staff questioned my sister who was staying with us about whether she was registered at hotel after seeing her outside smoking. Interesting that she was questioned but no others who were also outside smoking when they reentered the hotel.

It's in a great location. Staff is great

Our room was big enough to walk around the bed. The bathroom for me was uncomfortable in a way it was more a modern art statement. Our room was near the elevator but we came in late. The early morning was loud by 6:30 am. The sounds of parents getting their kids and people talking was like they were in the room, no sound barrier in the wall or door. Went to breakfast at 10:30 no eggs and was told no more were coming out, breakfast was supposed to end at 11 am.

A Yes Maybe review

Perfect location, price was good--off season, January, and room is nice and adorable for a small NYC Times Sq hotel. BUT, if you need coffee before 7am, there is zero coffee in the room or in the hotel. Not in the lobby, no lobby restaurants open at that hour, nada. You have to suit up and go out to a restaurant. It's NY, there are plenty in the blocks around the hotel ( a few 24 hour good choices), but please...that is absurd. And it took two calls for a broken hair dryer to be replaced. I never fully figured out the high tech shower, but it was warm enough. A yes, maybe, but if I go back I'll give another a try.

RIU Plaza New York, Times Square

Hotel is clean, but spartan. We had a glass bathroom door break, the room they moved us to the A/C didn’t work. They had a water pipe break two rooms down. No on site parking but do have a valet service. I guess for the price close to Times Square it was okay. Good breakfast buffet included with room. May stay there again, may not!!

Nice hotel close to everything

Pros: The included breakfast and the staff personnel.
Cons: Put a curtain or blind or something on the other side of the shower stall.
Location: Theaters, time square, hotel is located on Restaurant Row.
RIU front desk staff are very friendly and eager to help. The staff person who helps hail a cab was fabulous. Helped us reserve a car and the car was there waiting for us when we came outside. The bar staff were very friendly as well. Sorry I didnt get names. The room was very nice. It served its purpose since we hardly spent time in the room. I did have one issue, and that was the shower stall. I hated she stall and that is the one feature that would prevent me from coming back. The shower stall was not private at all. One could see the person taking a shower from the other side of the wall!! Its nice for two adults, but not for a family with teenagers. Also, the door to close the bathroom has an opening and you could see the person on the toilet if sitting any where facing the bathroom. I did make a comment to the front desk and they said that is how all the bathrooms were and they understood there is no privacy.
