Midtown - Times Square

The Manhattan at Times Square Hotel

Why We Love It

  • Great tourist location: About a five-minute walk to Times Square and Rockefeller Center, but not in the thick of crowds
  • Rooms are spacious for the area and could fit four guests; furnishings are clean though outdated and a bit worn
  • All rooms have big windows that overlook the streets or Times Square, which is a value in a neighborhood, where other hotels face air shafts

Overview

First-time visitors and people who like packed sightseeing itineraries will find the reasonably priced Manhattan at Times Square hotel to be a solid spot for a New York trip. You could say it's the right distance from Times Square -- about a five-minute walk north of the main crossroads, which puts it within the neon glow but slightly outside the crushing crowds.

The rooms are also pretty spacious for the neighborhood. A family of four could fit comfortably in the standard room with two beds -- it's not a palace, but far more generous than the shoebox-sized rooms at places nearby. Also all the rooms face the exterior streets, so you won't feel trapped in an air shaft.

What's the catch? It's not the newest or fanciest hotel. The hallways and rooms have seen lots of guests, and are looking a little run-down. Rooms are clean, but don't expect cutting-edge style; this is very traditional, simple decor. The lobby was recently redone and is pretty good looking. It can get crowded, but we noticed the registration desk and the elevators were able to sort out guests at good speeds.

If you get a room on the same side as the Novotel be sure to have ear plugs. They have a terrace bar that, on Friday night, played very loud non stop music until 11:30 pm. The hotel staff simply said there was nothing they could do.

The room we had needs a major upgrades. Wallpaper was peeling, cracks in bathroom floor as well as issues with leaking plumbing valves. It took several hours for maintenance to arrive. Also the information desk person gave us misleading information regarding purchasing theater tickets. Also the supplied breakfast selection ran out well before closing. We were very disappointed with this hotel.
