Recently renovated in May 2019 to update all guest rooms and public spaces, this hotel features tons of extras not usually available at New York hotels. Guests get access to a daily breakfast buffet, a rooftop patio with skyline views, free bicycle usage and even a manager's reception with free beer, wine and snacks on select weeknights. 

Rooms here are great if you're planning to spend a while exploring New York. All rooms feature stocked kitchenettes with stovetops, microwaves, refrigerators and even dishwashers. The recently refreshed rooms are spacious for Manhattan hotels, starting at 305 square feet, and also feature flat-panel TVs, USB charge ports and free Wi-Fi. 

It's hard to beat the location of the Element, just a few blocks from Times Square — it's within a 20-minute walk to places like Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building and Bryant Park, plus the shops and restaurants at Hudson Yards.

Other Comments
the temperature of the shower is either cold or hot! No in between. when we told the hotel about the issue, they didn’t fix the problem; nor did they offer to switch rooms. When we arrive on the first day, there were several problems about the room; however, when we dial 0 (which was indicated to by the manager’s phone greeting),nobody answered the phone. We had to go to the lobby to tell them. At checkin time, they did half way, then serve others, & left us for a long time before another employee found us standing there.
