Historical Traveller Reviews of Broadway Plaza Hotel

Great hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Would highly recommend this hotel. We stayed for a week April 26th - May 3rd this year and had no problems. Room was really big and clean. We asked for a view of the Empire State building and got a great view from our room on the 11th floor. Several other reviewers have commented about the location. Pay no attention to this. Its by no means a fabulous area, but its completely safe. I live in East London and I felt safer there than I normally do at home. It just looks a bit rough because most of the surrounding stores are wholesalers, who close up at 6pm, leaving the area to feel a bit of a deserted. However, walk 5 mins uptown or downtown and there are loads of places to eat, shop etc. 5th Ave is 2 mins away and you can walk to Macy's, Penn Station or Empire State building in about 5 mins. The subway is one block away (1 min away). If pressed, the only thing I would complain about is the elevator/lift. They have two, but only one goes completely from the basement to the top floor, so it was always busy, resulting in us having to wait a few minutes the majority of the time we wanted it.

Unbelievable view from Room 802

from 6604
We were a little taken aback by the lobby: little more than a desk and a narrow corridor leading to the elevators. However, we were greeted warmly. The room was tiny, but immaculate and very comfortable, with windows that open and the most amazing view of the Empire State Building in the entire city. My only misgiving is the neighborhood. While only a few blocks from livelier and more tourist- friendly blocks, the hotel is surrounded by warehouses and sweatshops. Consequently the neighborhood was quite dead after dusk, without nearby restaurants or bars.

Great hotel

from chris49
Stayed 14-18 April 2004. All the good things said previously about this hotel are true - my 15 year old son and I had an exceptionally large, clean room with an unhindered view of the ESB. This was our first trip to NY so it was brilliant to come back every evening and see this building lit in all its glory from the comfort of our own room! The complimentary breakfast was a big hit with my son - fresh donuts, muffins, bagels, danish and orange juice on tap. The staff were also exceptional - especially the doorman who always asked about our day and gave us tips on sightseeing every time we returned in the evening. The area LOOKS rough, but safe - we walked in every direction from the hotel, day and night. We will definitely use this hotel again - roll on our next visit to this brilliant, vibrant city

great place!

from hdk1211
We loved it! After reading some of the negative reviews on this site (almost all from Americans) and also the positive ones (almost all from British/Scottish/Irish folks) I was a little worried... but the hotel was great!! It was in a perfect location - about a 5-10 minute subway ride from both downtown and Central Park area! Also only about a $5 cab ride from each! Staff was great - very helpful with luggage, parking, etc and the room was very nice. Also very quiet. If you're afraid of people, especially people who are not caucasian, you might not like it. But if you're at all open minded, there's nothing not to like about this place.

We were very pleased

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for 4 nights from the 29th March,we too were a bit apprehensive about some of the negative comments(all from Americans),but we were very pleased with everything from our room,well not entirely as we paid for a junior suite and we were only on floor 4,so no view, but it didnt bother us, we had a huge room,infact part of it was wasted we had a sette and chairs ect we didnt use at all,we had another table and chairs which we used when we had those great bagels and muffins for breakfast. We didnt feel scared or anything ref the area, and agree it may add true New York experience!!!I dont think you will find any where where you dont see rubbish getting put out ect. If we were ever back in New York we would come back here,our room was spotless,huge,and a very good size bathroom.Will certainly recommend it to any friends who may be going there in the future

t believe the negative reviews!!

from Sarah4uk
Stayed for 7 nights from March 26th. We asked for a room with a view, and got one (1104) - we could see the Empire State from the bath!
Bathroom huge; it was about the size of the whole room when I stayed at the "Habitat". Clean, big bedroom, staff were overly helpful, it was hard to miss the hotel - when travelling down Broadway there's a huge billboard on the side of the building. Ok, there are boxes and rubbish on the road at night, but its not exactly imtimidating, or at least me and my Mum didn't think so; if anything it was amusing to watch the men pushing boxes around on the street from the room. The subway is a block away, and if you take the car, we could see into the parking lot from our room. Breakfast never ran out, we found it easier to take it back up to the room. Having hot drinks on tap also made a welcome change!
Although the reception looks small, it made sure that the receptionists could see everyone who was going in or out of the hotel, and stop anyone 'dodgy' looking. We did start to wonder exactly what people were expecting with their rooms, or for the money they pay, but if you want to spend your time in NY stuck in a hotel room, go to the Hilton or such like, but if its a budget hotel with large rooms, then this hotel is perfect.

irish shoppers delight

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed in the Broadway plaza for 5 nights from March 29th. The room way on the 10th floor. It had everything a weary shopper could need.
Spacious, large bathroom, great views of the empire state. The area seemed slightly dodgey on first impressions but if you walk around you will find that the people are very friendly. There is a great deli on 5th and 28th that we only found on the last sure to visit. All in all a lovely hotel with curteous, friendly staff. We'll be back!

Great Hotel

from Indielynx
Don't be put off by other comments about this hotel. I have just stayed there for 4 nights and it was fine; room was big and clean, service good and breakfasts basic but plenty of bagels to start the day going.
It is true the area around the hotel is a bit dodgy but as two young single females we had no hassle. The hotel is a few blocks from the Empire State building, a ten minute walk to Times Square and Madison Square Gardens and the subway is only a block away. For the money you won't get much better.

Stay somewhere else

from A TripAdvisor Member
For this price, I think you can definitely find a better hotel. The pictures on their site are a bit deceiving. The bathroom is so tiny that two people would not be able to stand in there. There is no closet to hang your clothes, no lobby--everything is sooo narrow, you felt claustrophic. On top of that, the location is absolutely horrible. We didn't even feel safe walking around at 8 p.m. to get food. The area is dark and scary at night with trash piled everywhere. However, I must say, the staff was very friendly and courteous. They helped us with our baggage as well as helped get us a taxi any time we needed one.

looks can deceive

from AlanLondonEngland
The entrance to this hotel can be easily missed and the tiny lobby area will give you the feeling that you have made a terrible mistake when you first check in.But do not despair as the actual rooms are quite large and are vrey clean. I admit that I might have been lucky with my room(1203) but I had a great view of the empire state building that was lit up all in green on St Patricks night.I found the staff most helpful at all times and was asked if I had any problems even if I found myself travelling in the elevator with a member of staff. The area leaves alot to be desired,especialy at night but I never felt threatened and the subway was only a few yards away on the next corner. I was never bothered by the daytime stall holders and in fact it gave the feeling that i was seeing part of the real new york. The only thing to fear from this hotel is the pounds you will put on,eating those wonderful doughnuts at breakfast. One more foot note,let the hotel book you a car when you return to the airport($45+toll+tip). It will save you a lot of money by not being stuck in a traffic jam on the freeway with the meter running in a taxi. You might even get a Cadilac like we did.

Top Local Tips for New York City

5th Ave 5th Ave is great, you can walk all the way to the top and meander through Central Park and have a breath of fresh air before you get struck in with some serious shopping on 5th Ave. I love Tiffany's, don't be intimidated, there are some really lovely affordable pieces in there. The staff are not snooty at all and I've always received excellent service, usually when I am at my scruffiest! Abercrombie & Fitch over the road is fab. Even if you're not into the casual preppie style they have a really hunky model on the door and it's like going into a nightclub - not for the faint hearted! Have cocktails in the evening at the Rainbow Roooms in the Rockerfellar Centre, the views are outstanding, you pay through the nose for your drinks through. Formal attire is required. Another tip for me is the SUBWAY - Not as scary as it would seem on Law & Order, CSI etc great, fast, cheap and convenient way to get around, especially as there is a stop right by the hotel. Use Times Sq as a starting point

L'Ecole-The best kept dining secret in New York The French Culinary Institute has a restaurant, L'Ecole, in the SoHo area. The students cook and serve fabulous French meals. The prix fixe, 5 course dinner was a mere $39.99 per person. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was great-I would have never guessed that this anything but a top notch French restaurant.

City Pass Go to the least popular attraction that offers the City Pass (that way you don't have to wait in line) and purchase it. It's a great value with some of the best attractions, but most important, you will avoid the ticket purchase lines everywhere because you get the actual tickets when you purchase the book. (DO NOT TEAR THE TICKETS OUT OR THEY WILL BE INVALIDATED). Also, buty the weekly Metro-Pass if you are staying three days or more. I definitely got my money's worth. It's good for buses as well. Enjoy!
