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.

The hotel itself is very nice and is in an excellent location. It was impossible to get an elevator at busy times and our friends ended up having to walk down 34 flights of stairs to get to the lobby. Breakfast is good but the breakfast space is so small that there was never enough seating no matter what time you went to eat breakfast. We had to take our breakfast back to our room each morning- luckily we were on the 5th floor because we could not get an elevator. The daily happy hour was a nice extra.

Element is one of our favorite hotel chains. Staying here is like being at home. Even the tiniest rooms have kitchenettes. Our standard king room even had a dishwasher! The decor is nice and sleek yet homey, the bed is super comfy and I loved the stovetop and full size fridge! We even had Showtime and Netflix. There was a safe in the room, and o best of all, we were allowed to bring our pets for free. The only drawback was the slow elevator. It is a tall skinny building, so there are only about 10 rooms per floor, but about 40 floors! Ask for a lower floor. Problem solved. I cannot day enough good things about this hotel. Oh! And they have a gym and offer a free breakfast! Highly recommended!

I had a problem at the front desk with both our rooms (location) and luggage. I made the reservation through Travelzoo and called the hotel the day before our arrival and asked for either adjoining or rooms next to each other. We were told we would be accommodated and then they placed us on different floors. I spoke to the management and was told they would take care of it the next day. Our evening plans were inconvenienced but we hung in for the 2nd day but then they didn't deliver our luggage that they were holding for our new room and actually got annoyed with me because I called twice for it. I thought the hotel was fine but this really soured our mini-vacation for us.
