Why We Love It

  • Around the corner from Times Square, 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 USA Today favorites like Joe Allen, Orso and Becco

Map & Directions

Typically 40 minutes by taxi from John F. Kennedy (JFK) Airport, the fare is approximately $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 over an hour but will be much cheaper.

Rooms & Rates

Check 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 with hotels directly in Times Square.

Rooms have modern new furnishings, but are a bit tight for travelers looking to spend more time inside the room. Showers in the rooms are doorless and can wet the floors. But the dozens of Broadway theaters within five blocks will keep guests 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. 

The An'nam on site offers Vietnamese and Japanese fusion cuisine, but also serves up a traditional American buffet breakfast each morning for purchase. DING offers freestyle barbecue that you can prepare yourself, shabu-shabu stews and tapas. For further exploring, Restaurant Row -- which is packed shoulder-to-shoulder with ethnic eateries and lots of bars -- is just a block or two west along Eighth and Ninth avenues.

I wanted to find something, but no. Maybe the location, since it's on a side street of Times Square instead of on 8th or 7th.

The room — the thermostat in two different rooms didn't work and was therefore 80+ until we opened the windows. Neither room had a working phone, and the shower drain didn't function properly. Front desk staff didn't seem to care at all about these issues upon checkout.

Great location for the price. Pillows were very comfortable.

Lobby has a chic vibe. The rooms are clearly old, but have some nice updates--new floors, wall paper and headboard-- to give it a more modern vibe. Close to a fabulous coffee/pastry shop called Bibble and Sip.

Many people talked about the noise factor (slamming doors etc). We experienced a little of that but traveled with a white noise machine so we weren't bothered.
