Historical Traveller Reviews of Comfort Inn Manhattan Hotel

Good for the price...

from mamawatta
I've recently returned from a 3 day 4 night trip to NYC with 3 other friends. Thankfully the weather was wonderful during our stay in NYC at this time of the year. We had a budget to stay on, and the Comfort Inn Manhattan was a great location for many attractions, subway access, shops, cabs and limited traffic. We arrived on a friday and parked our car in one of the 3 parking buildings across the street (this one gave us a discount because we stayed at the comfort inn) we were quickly checked into our room on the 7th floor. The elevators are very small and slow. But nice to know we had access to a in -hotel restaurant that stayed open late and offered room service. The hallways are very narrow and have these fire safety doors that make some rooms difficult to get luggage through. We had a 2 double beds room that faced 35st. The room was a little hot for us (and yes the heater does made some noise but did not lose sleep over it) so we popped open the window a little. The noise from the street was there but not loud. The room was very clean and the bathroom was on the small side but clean and had no prolem with getting hot water for a shower. However, the tub in our room did not drain hardly at all after each shower. So with 4 people taking showers the tub almost over flowed. The decor with ok, but a little dated. The following day we needed more towels and asked the front desk to send up some more after our day of touring. By the time we got to our room, they were right behind us with some more towels! Check out was easy and fast as well as the car lot. If you want to keep on budget and not snobbish about atmoshpere...this is the place! It was a quiet hotel, convenient and clean. Our use for the hotel was just what we needed. A comfortable room, easy access to sights and a place to sleep. Other than the tub we felt it was a very good choice for the money.

ideal for tourist.

from nottmlango
Great location, room was fine but was on the front & the workmen were noisy at 2am onwards, earplugs was clean tidy decor a bit dated, Alex at the desk is a star!!!!!!!!, breakfast was good, use the Plowright pub across the road Jeff the barman was great, like being in cheers drinking at the bar watching Basketball on TV chewing the fat.
For the price & location added with the general room it was difficult to beat, at the end of the day you only sleep in the room you don't live in it!!!!!!!!! We will stop here again but ASK for a room at the back( some other folks were at the back & it was quiet)

Highly Recommended- Even During a Black Out!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We checked in about 2 hours before the GREAT BLACK OUT in August 2003!
We had a day and half without electricity and I must say that the staff were VERY good and accommodating during this time. It was not fun for ANYONE but the staff did the best they could trying to help the customers, giving out flashlights and water as they could. Once the electricity was back and running, we had a very lovely stay. The room, though not large, had a HUGE king size bed, good size tv and a sofa.
The bathroom was large enough for both my husband- ex rugby player- and I to be in there at the same time. It was very clean and the air conditioning worked like a charm! The breakfast was adequate and the staff were excellent in recommendations and booking anything you desired. We had a helicopter tour and then a taxi back to the airport booked by Alex. The helicopter tour was even better than he said and..... well... the taxi ended up being a LIMO!!!! at same cost for us to take a regular yellow taxi from the airport! The location was perfect! I would highly recommend this hotel for a New York stay!

good and bad

from gatherer47
the good- Alex at front desk,James the maintainence man,the free breakfast,free coffee.location,cleanliness,fast yes fast elevator-never had to wait

the bad-terrible noisy banging radiators,too much heat,noise if your room faces the street

Great location, average hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the CI Manhattan for 3 days in January 2004 and was reasonably pleased with what I found. The first thing to mention is the superb location with the Empire state building and Macy's around the corner, subway (both the transportation type and the sandwich eatery) at the end of the block and Times Sq. The Garden and all other major Midtown attractions no more than 5-10 minutes walk away.

As for the hotel itself, it doesn't look too appealing from the outside but once you get inside the lobby is quite attractive, if not a little small. I arrived 30 minutes before the earliest stated check-in time of 15.00 but was checked in straight away without any problems. My request of a top floor room (usually keeps the noise down) was granted and I stayed in room 1204. This is a corner room with two windows, out of one you can see the ESB and the other the Crysler building in the distance although you have to look beyond the neighbouring office building. The room was small (as you'd probably expect for NY) with one double bed although enough for one person. The bathroom however was TINY and it was a job to clean my teeth over the sink without bumping my head.
However both the bathroom and bedroom were very clean.

Another concern before I arrived was the temperature. Outside it was -15c but I needent have worried as the room was tropical! Unfortunately the price paid for this was a noisy heater which would make a noise every hour or so for 15 minutes followed by a series of bangs. I didn't want to turn it off as I was worried about the pipes freezing but I did this anyway after a sleepess first night. After that no problem.

Breakfast was basic and nothing to write home about. It was certainly not up to the standard of the budget hotels in Europe but it was good to start the day off with a bit of grubb. Overall the hotel was average, although I am judging that based on other hotels I have stayed in and not NY standards. I paid $99 per night for the room booked on the choicehotels website and I certainly could have done much worse with my money in NYC. So good value overall, especially with the exchange rate with the £ so good at the moment.

Pleasant stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here the weekend before Christmas, '03. Have mixed feelings but would stay here again. Negatives - reserved and was charged for queen size room but given a single full size. Room was on a corner with lots of windows (good view of next door buildings and nothing scenic) but was very small. Bathroom was tiny - had to turn side ways to sit on the toilet. Fortunately my wife and I are fairly slender or pottying would have been very interesting. Only one small glass shelf, which slanted, to put things on in bathroom. Floor was uneven in several spots.
However, it was clean. Alex at the front desk was a wonderful help for getting around town. The breakfast was typical Comfort Inn toast, bagels, dry cereals, etc. and therefore acceptable. Loved the location - great pubs next door and just across the street, subway handy, Macy's and Empire State almost next door. Was a good value for our dollar. Our question was if we were in a luxury room (I hope not) or the worst of the lot. If we had more time I would have asked to see some other rooms so we could compare. Will look on-line for something similar for our next trip this spring but if we don't see something obviously better for the same price, we'll stay here again.

Not a good experience

from judahvista
I was very disappointed in my stay here. The room we were given was small and dark. The tile in the bathroom had mold. The worst was the noise from the heater. Pinging and thumping all night. I could not sleep half the time. I even burned my hand on the hot water/coffee machine downstairs (no coffee machine in the room). I will never stay here again no matter what the price.

Fantastic value

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from 5 day stay at Comfort Inn Manhattan. Couldn't fault it really. Staff were excellent - look out for Alex, the best receptionist in NYC - made our stay even more enjoyable. Room as spotlessly clean and comfortable. Excellent location - just off 5th Ave and a short stroll to Times Square. Free breakfast is good - plenty of food and drinks. Decor is a little dated - thats the only complaint I have. Would recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere reasonably priced and value for money in NYC.

Wonderful Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My three friends and I just came back from the Macy's parade we stayed at the Comfort Inn Manhattan....We were treated very good and the staff were outstanding..I would recommend this hotel to any one...Thanks again for making our stay so pleasant.....Edie

Wonderful location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Have just returned from a three day stay at the Comfort Inn Manhattan and would like to highly recommend this hotel. The location is excellent - it is just off 5th Avenue, 5 minutes from Macy's and the Empire State Building. Whatever you are looking for - shopping or tourist attractions, this hotel is central for all. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgable. The complementary buffet breakfast is a real bonus as well. The decor could do with freshening up but this is a minor point - the rooms are clean and facilities more than adequate. I will certainly be staying there next time I visit NY.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Subway Get yer head around it and use it, cheap, safe and fast.

Canal Street Travel on the subway at the end of the road downtown and get off at Canal Street - fabulous fake handbags at ridiculous prices - great fun!

Location Location is really critical and will save you a bundle on transportation costs if you stay near your main interests. The subway is safe during the day but as evning approachs it gets pretty creepy and the taxis can get expensive if you travel a good distance.
