Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Hospitality House Hotel
Location Plus Elbow Room !from A TripAdvisor Member
The only negatives are the elevators (slow & small) and the hallways from which you enter the units: dark and worn. But once the door was opened, all doubts disappeared. Thank you very much. We enjoyed it so much, we were sorry to leave.
ve ever stayedfrom Locotravel
Only complaint would be that the heating is steam (radiator) heating and is a bit noisy when it comes on in the middle of the night. My room was extremely hot when I checked in (-2 degrees celcius outside - about 30 inside!) and I couldn't adjust the temperature. Managed to crack a window (on 7th floor) and let some air in and mentioned it to the front desk. Staff were great - let me store my bags for the day when checking out as had about 5 hours to kill before leaving for airport.
Was good value for money as was travelling on Kiwi dollar and got a great last minute deal.
Highly, highly recommend this hotel - I can't wait to go back and stay there with my friends.
good place in manhattanfrom A TripAdvisor Member
location good, rooms good, we had two bedroom and pullout sofa, 5 of us went, mum.dad, 22 year old son, 2 daughters age 18 and 16.
everything we needed was there, in easy walking distance to sights such as times sq etc, rooms and hotel clean, restaurants next door, also next to the waldorf hotel.
staff more than helpful, would happily stay again, great for 1 st time visitors.
Great for groups/families!from fruitflyboy
The staff were helpful, courteous and friendly (Isaac in particular).
The midtown-Manhattan location was convenient in addition to giving us a nice taste of life among the skyscrapers in the Big Apple. It's right near the 51st St. subway station (Metro 6). Not much noise at all (perhaps because we were on the 7th floor).
Overall, we had no complaints at all, and I'd highly recommend this for groups/families.
It was GREAT!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Glad we stayed!from packrfan
The cost per night was $380.36, this included all fees and taxes. We each paid for one night. We all thought where it was located was great. We would hightly recommend it for a larger group wanting to stay together. Its in a nice area, restaurants right next door and shopping just up the street.
Great for small group!from iamlisad
My only complaint was that it was a little further over to the East Side than we prefer to stay -- but it was quite walkable and in a decent area.
Like Having Your Own Apt in New York Cityfrom Fongerini
Only downsides are the typical NYC traffic noises and our bathroom had a slightly tricky toilet.
We enjoy staying here enough that it is the first place we consider whenever we come to New York.
If you need space for your visit to NYC this is Your Hotel!from Indy
The bathroom had a tub/shower combo.
All in all it was a great place for a family of 5 to stay!
Beside us was a room that had 4 women. They loved their room too. Each floor except the first has 4 "rooms" of which it appeared 2 are 2 bedroom and 2 are 1 bedroom. The 9th floor was listed as a penthouse and I never ventured up for a look.
No pool. No exercise room. No restaraunt. This is just hotel with rooms for guests. The staff was pleasant and helpful.
Beside the hotel is the San Martin Restaurant. A fine establishment for Spanish and Italian.
A block east on 49th is Chin Chin's. Flat out the best Chinese food I have ever eaten.
At third and 51st is Azure. It is a little store/deli. It is open 24 hours and has a buffet as well as sandwiches and some staples for the fridge. The bagels and the chocolate cake from their were quite delicious. There is a food emporium at 51st and second for more extensive grocery needs.
It was a great hotel that I have no reservations suggesting
larger than some NYC apartments!from A TripAdvisor Member
While the space was immaculate, with newish furniture and newly painted, there are some caveats. If you're looking for a 4 star boutiquey hotel, this is not for you: it's slightly grubby. The ancient radiators make it impossible to control the heat--I put bowls of water around the suite to prevent static.
There is no natural light-- the window shades are down and impossible to raise, possibly to block the view of the dark airshaft and pigeon poop. Some of the windows didn't lock--although it'd be pretty impossible for someone to break in since I was on the 4th floor and there are no balconies, as a woman staying alone, it creeped me out. There was no dish washing liquid, no kleenex, but there was plenty of toilet paper, towels, and nice bathroom amenities. Check out is too early: 11:30.
It's supremely quiet, very cozy. The front desk folks were awesome, very helpful, very nice. Highly recommended if you need space, want to party, need to do work, or like to save money on food.
Top Local Tips for New York City
Shuttle from Newark to Manhattan Arriving at Newark airport, we used one of the private shuttle (minivans) going to Manhattan. A bit long but definitely worth it (60 US$ + tip for a family of four)
subway metro cards If you are staying for 6 or 7 nights buy a weekly metro card $24 which you can use on all subways and buses in NYC. Saves a fortune on single tickets which I think are $2. For us staying 6 nights it worked out about £2.50 a day and we used it loads to get across Manhattan quickly. Even cheaper walk everywhere - not always feasible if you are going from Central Park to Battery Park!!!
trains and subways We took Amtrak from the BWI Baltimore station to New York's Penn Station.We took the blue-E subway line to 53rd/Lexington and walked four blocks to the hotel. When we were not walking, we took a tour bus which let us "hop-on/hop-off" at various predetermined points around the Downtown area; the bus ticket was good for 48 hours. We took the tour bus to Rockefeller Center, Central Park,Time Square, World Trade Center site, Battery Park(where we took the ferry to Liberty Island and then to Ellis Island), Empire State Building, Greenwich Village, Soho, and United Nations. The last ferry coming back from Ellis Island is at 5:15PM, so it's best to get the ferry early in the day. Tickets to get into the Statue of Liberty sold out by 11AM on the day that we went, but we were able to get tickets to go to Liberty Island and Ellis Island. We went into the main Ellis Island building.
