We enjoyed our stay, reception staff polite. Room was very clean, well decorated and had nice bed linen. Room and bathroom very small but same as many rooms in New York City. Good position, theatre district only a short walk away.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Courtyard Manhattan Fifth Avenue Hotel

Convinient Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Clarion Hotel was conviniently located near most tourist attractions. The front desk staff was cordial but not overly friendly. The first day, we arrived at 7am and they were nice enough to have a room available right away, which was helpful. The room was TINY and we had no coffee maker or fridge!! As with the other reviews, I'm not sure how thoroughly the room was cleaned but our towels and toiletries were replaced daily. It was an OK hotel for the price and location...and if its a good deal, I might consider staying there again.

Happy New Year

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Clarion for New Year 2003-2004. The hotel was excellent. The staff were fantastic and so was the location. The only down side was the room size, although we cannot complain. The rooms were clean and a sufficient base for our stay. The bar/restaurant (the salmon river) which is part of the hotel was superb. Excellent food and drink made our stay in New York that extra lttle special.

Moderate Price and great Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently stayed at the Clarion New YOrk city with our 2 teenage daughters and 21 month old son. The Clarion was a great location to eveything.
The people who work there were very helpful and accomadating. We did have a problem when we arrived.. We booked on the internet and were suppose to get 2 double beds and a crib. But when
we arrived at 12am midnight we got a double and a single couch sofa bed. They assured us they would find us a room in the morning which they did.. They were out of cribs but did get a roll away for us. Make sure if you book on the internet you call yourself to confirm what type room accomadations you need. We would def go back..

Pleasant, clean at the Clarion Fifth Avenue

from A TripAdvisor Member
My daughter and I stayed at the Clarion Hotel in a standard room from July 23 to July 28. The room was clean, pleasant and quiet. One of the telephones was not working the first day, but the engineer came and replaced it within a half-hour. Housekeeping supplied a toothbrush and extra pillows at our request. The staff at the front desk was not overly friendly, but they did answer any questions we had. We did receive one call from the front desk at 6:30 AM asking if we had left any luggage at the airport. (We had not.) Our last night we received a phone call and a knock on the door from someone who had been given our room number by mistake. That suggested to me that the system for keeping track of guests and room numbers is flawed. We did have easy access to public transportation, and we felt walk safe walking in the neighborhood. There were many places to eat nearby. We liked the Chef Express for a quick breakfast, or lunch. There is no food available at the hotel after 9:30 PM except from vending machines. I felt that we had a good experience for the price of the room. (We had a combined airfare/hotel room package).

Loved the Clarion

from A TripAdvisor Member
We loved the Clarion, great staff very friendly, the rooms were clean and lovely. Perfect location. Close to most of the popular tourist attractions. Would stay there again.

Good Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed here with my wife and 2 kids this past week.The room was cramped for 4 people but we managed,given the short periods we spent in there.The staff were pleasant enough,not excessively rude or overly friendly.As the other reviewers have said,the hotel is in an excellent location but I was expecting a little more for $180 dollars a night. Would recommend for location but I'll be trying elsewhere the next time I visit Manhattan.
PS
Ask for an upper floor room,we were on the 6th floor the first night and never got any sleep because of the noise the cooling fans make outside.I asked to be moved and we were given a room on the 21st floor which was better.

Great location

from CallawayDenver
We stayed there from May 28th to June 4th. I was a bit leery after reading some of the comments. We arrived early and was checked in promptly. Customer Service was friendly compared to the service we received in NYC in general. The The hotel is small with a very nice lobby. It looks very nice from the outside.

Our room is very small but adequate. We got our hotel through Priceline so we did not have high expectations based on otherr hotel reveiws. Our room was by the elevators (2) but due to the size (6 rooms per floor?) of the hotel, most of them were by the elevators. We smelled smoke the minute we walked in. We did not complain and opened the windows. The carpet is soiled. Furnishing is okay (desk, nightstands, tv armoire, iron, coffee maker, arm chair,2 phones). The bedding was not appealing. The sheets were not 'pure white'. Bed skirt had stains on it, the blanket has holes and the bedspread looked filty - couldn't decide if it was dirty or the colors.

The bathroom was clean and I liked the shampoo and conditioners. Marble top countertop, hair dryer and the tub was clean. It did not look like our floor was mopped at all the entire time we were there. I did not think our tub was cleaned. The soap wrap and empty shampoo bottle were left in the shower the entire time we were there. Not sure if they did not clean it or did not want to touch our personal items. My hair was left in the tub and soap scum was on shower facet and this indicated to me that they did not clean it. New towels were replaced and the sink facet and countertop were cleaned daily.

Here is the best part! We were there for 7 nights and our sheets were not changed once. I put a light pen mark on it and the mark was there every nigth we returned. I did that on the fitted sheet so I cannot say about the flat sheet and the pillows. We wore our clothes to bed and lined the top of the pillow with our clothes. We closed the windows to bed to avoid using the blanket. Our concern was whether the sheet was changed from the previous occupant. We decided not to say anything since we left our worldly possession there and did not want an angry housekeeper to tamper with our stuff. We had a good time in the city so I cannot say that it ruined our experience. I am not sure that I would stay there again though.

Anniversary Trip 30th

from A TripAdvisor Member
Fully enjoyed the week stay. The hotel employees were very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and the view was good. We were on the 30th floor and even though looking out there was an office building in front of us but looking to the left you had a pretty good view. Wasn't disappointed at all. Only complaint we had was with the restaurant connected to the hotel-Salmon Run, employees short with answers and at times actually rude. But with our location in midtown we had a variety of places to dine out. Would definitely stay here again on next trip to NY.

Fantastic!!!!

from MidwestFella
Fantastic hotel, great location and good rate. Paid $124 for this hotel on the corner of 40th St. and Fifth Ave. About 2 blocks to Macy's and the Empire State Building and a 10 minute walk to Times Square or Rockefeller Center. Not alot of service, but the rooms were good sized for NY, very clean and everyone was friendly from the front desk to the Concierge to the Bell Captain. Would definitely stay here again, simply for the location!!!!!!!!!!!!

very happy

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was small, but very clean. We stayed on the 18th floor and the only noise we had was from jack hammers on the street. No noise from other tenants. Staff was very helpful, especially Haydon. Our flight didn't leave until late--so when we checked out our luggage was stored at no charge. We would stay again.
