Midtown - Times Square

The Gallivant Times Square

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • Just around the corner from Times Square and on a quieter side street, allowing for a restful night's sleep
  • Rooms are tight, but guests are mainly out sightseeing -- Rockefeller Center is a 10-minute walk away
  • The hotel is less than a five-minute walk to Restaurant Row, lined with well-known favourites like Joe Allen, Orso and Becco

Map & Directions

Typically 40 minutes by taxi from John F. Kennedy International Airport, the fare is approximately US$50, not including tip and tolls. Alternatively, take the AirTrain to Jamaica Station and change for the Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station, which is 15-20 minutes on foot from the hotel. The journey should take a bit more than an hour but will be much cheaper.

Rooms & Rates

The Gallivant Times Square offers small but stylish rooms in a tourist's most-wanted location. It is right around the corner from Times Square's main intersection but hidden on a side street so that the immediate area is quiet and restful compared to hotels directly in Times Square.

Rooms have modern furnishings but are a bit tight and have doorless-showers that can wet the floors, but you won't be spending your time in the guest rooms -- the dozens of Broadway theatres within five blocks will keep you out into the evening. Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall are three blocks away, the Museum of Modern Art and the high-end shops on Fifth Avenue are another 10 blocks from the hotel. 

An'nam offers Vietnamese and Japanese fusion-inspired cuisine on site, but also serves up a traditional American buffet breakfast each morning (surcharge applies). DING offers freestyling barbecue that you can prepare yourself, shabu-shabu and tapas. For further exploring, Restaurant Row -- which is packed with ethnic eateries and bars -- is just a block or two west along Eighth and Ninth avenues.

The place is spotless, but a little run down. The furniture in the room was chipped and not great quality, but the staff was fantastic, and the mattress was heaven, and the location was perfect.

Front desk staff not friendly and not helpful. Only one bellhop was extremely helpful. One concierge (a male) was not helpful at all and did not answer her questions only told us to “take the bus” when we asked if he had recommendations of what to do that day. One elevator was out of service and the other one did not work correctly ( would just go up and down and not let you off the floor that you pressed) so we took the stairs the whole weekend. The room was not that nice and extremely small. There were other things as well but to many to list. Don’t stay here.

My room was not ready when I arrived at 12n . That was okay, I know check in was 3pm. At 215pm I tried again, I know check in is 3pm, but often you can get in earlier. The women at the desk told me it was not ready because my room was so big it takes a while to clean it. I thought that was a rude answer, just tell me its not ready instead of adding an unneeded fib. She appeared dumb by that statement.
