Historical Traveller Reviews of Best Western Hospitality House Hotel

Location Plus Elbow Room !

from A TripAdvisor Member
To find that the reviews I had read on TripAdvisor were NOT exaggerations was refreshing. On June 6th, when we (4 adults, 3 children - ages 3, 5 & 12) arrived at 49th & 3rd, we all were more than pleasantly surprised, with the location and the apartments. My grandson 's immediate reaction was: "This is great!." I was relieved. The Hospitality House truly was a FIND I never would have trusted without TripAdvisor's recommendation. Both units were clean and spacious, the A/C made the heat and humidity bearable and the well-stocked refrigerator made late-night snacks and breakfast convenient and economical. It really was "as advertised": an excellent value, perfect for families with children and just like actually living in NYC. The staff was courteous and helpful and even helped with getting discounted tickets. We look forward to staying there for our next visit to NYC - with or without children.
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 stayed

from Locotravel
I stayed here on my way back to London after a 4 month trip around the world. Was extremely impressed with the apartment suite - is the best place I've ever stayed. I would highly recommend staying here with a group of friends as the rooms are massive with huge king size beds and there is a futon couch in the living room also. Really felt like a home away from home. The kitchen was great as I was on my own and didn't want to spend money eating out, and it saved money having breakfast provided (fresh fruit, milk, cereal, english muffins). Had TV in both living room and bedroom with so many channels I now understand why Americans love TV so much!

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 manhattan

from A TripAdvisor Member
stayed at the hospitality house best western, 145 e 49th st manhattan in july this year(2005)
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
Just returned after a six-night stay at the BW Hospitality House. The suite was clean and very spacious - perfect for the five of us. A large living/dining room, one large and one medium-sized bedroom, one reasonably-sized bathroom (tub; full towel closet), and a medium-sized and well-stocked kitchen (fruits, fruit juice, milk, cereal, English muffins, coffee/tea; refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, toaster, coffee-maker, dishwasher). Laundry machines in the basement. TVs in every room, VCR in two; free high-speed internet (they were nice enough to provide us with an ethernet cable as well).

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
We just returned from a nine night stay at the Best Western Hospitality House in NY, NY. It was great! The best thing was the staff. They were wonderful. Very kind, courteous and helpful. It felt like we were leaving our family behind when we left. Issac is the BOMB! Like having our very own tour guide/personal assistant. Also, great rooms. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. We have no complaints and plan to stay here again when we return to NY. Also, hotel is close to everything! Thanks again!

Glad we stayed!

from packrfan
Five ladies from Wisconsin stayed at the Hospitality House from May 24 thru the 29th. Five nights. We had no trouble finding it, the entrance is small and not fancy. We had a two bedroom/one bath, full kitchen, living, dining room combined. It was more than enough room. One bedroom had a king bed, the second a queen and the living room area had a full pull out bed in the sofa. Each bedroom had a TV as well as the main room. A few times we could have used another bathroom but we just took turns and finished with makeup, hair etc in the bedrooms. It was nice having the fruit, cereal, muffins, juice and milk every morning. The front desk was helpful. We were mostly there in the late evening as we did alot of the touristy things all day long. We could easily have had another adult with us.
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
Took my teenage daughter, a friend & her teenage son, and another adult friend (party of 5) for a quick getaway weekend the first weekend in May, 2005. We made our plans at the last minute and getting a 2 bedroom at the hospitality house seemed like a better deal than two room somewhere else. We arrived around noon on Saturday and our apartment was already ready. Desk attendant was very friendly. It was very clean, modestly furnished, but the perfect set up for a group of friends travelling together. One room had a queen bed, the other a twin with a trundle. The living room had a futon couch bed. The unit came stocked with a try of fresh fruit, and very small containers of milk and juice, a few single serve boxes of cereal, and some english muffins. We ate the fruit but didn't go for the rest of the stuff. Kitchen was a full kitchen. We didn't really make use of the facility, but enjoyed hanging out in the living/dining room area till the small hours of the morning. Upon checking out the desk attendant was again very helpful and stored our bags for the day. He even gave us a bag of ice for the road for my daughter who is still recovering from a broken leg.
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 City

from Fongerini
Recently stayed here with my family for the 3rd time and it always feels comfortable, just like having your own NYC apt. Excellent location just behind the Waldorf Astoria, on the M50 bus line, 1 blk to the subway, walking distance to Grand Central, Rockefeller Ctr, most midtown sights. Our 1 BR apt had a Living Rm, Bedroom, kitchen & Bath, hardwood floors, cable TV, free high-spd internet access, fruit-juice-milk-cereal-english muffins-coffee/tea supplied in your kitchen daily. Quite a number and variety of restaurants within a few blocks of the hotel.
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
I stayed with my family at the Hospitality House from March 26th til the 31st of this year. It is a converted appartment complex. We stayed in 7B. It is a 2 bedroom. The Master bedroom was a 19x14 foot room with a king bed , 2 closets and a TV. The other bedroom was a 14X12 foot room with a normal double, a closet and a TV. The main room was large enough to leave the fold out sleeper sofa open and to still have a table with 6 chairs around it with plenty of extra room. The kitchen was a long thin one but had a fridge, full size stove, range, and microwave. There was a dishwasher too. The hotel will stock the fridge with milk, OJ, butter, jelly, english muffins, and Kellog cereals.
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
This place is huge--probably larger than many NYC apts! I stayed by myself via a good Hotwire deal for 2 nights on a weekend at $413 total, inc. tax, etc.; it's usually about 300- a night. Full kitchen (fridge, microwave, toaster; pots/pans, a real stove, teakettle, coffee maker, sugar, boxed cereal, fruit, milk, english muffins, coffee, dining room table, good size bathroom, etc.). 2 closets, 2 full length mirrors, lots of storage space. Good size bathroom, nice shower, full size dining room table, roll-out comfy couch, 2 TVs, with the big one in the living room. Big bedroom w/smallish tv. Desk, with internet connection. You'll save tons of money on food, and it's a convenient location near Murray Hill.

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.
