Historical Traveller Reviews of Courtyard Manhattan Times Square South Hotel

FIrst choice of Manhattan hotels

from Linda travels
Stayed at the Courtyard Times Square in March 2005. (there is another Courtyard down the street, I don't know about it) Have been to several hotels in Manhattan and like that this is right around the corner from all the action of TImes Square yet quiet at night. Nice sized rooms. Friendly and very helpful staff. Nice to have complimentary coffee and tea always available. Can easily walk either downtown or uptown. Easy to get to subways. This would be our first choice.

Overall We Loved It

from Don9992
The staff was exellent, especially the Jamaican-born bellman (wish I'd written down his name!). When we needed additional shampoo during the busy morning hours, it was there within 5 minutes.

Rooms are clean and everything is in excellent shape. Halls are pleasant and well-lit. Even the guest laundry room was very clean and even secure.

For my money, you can't beat the location. Easy walking distance to the subway, Times Square, the TKTS booth, and a lot of theaters, yet not nearly as hectic as those properties directly on Times Square.

The only things I wasn't crazy about were beds and breakfast.

The beds were a bit lumpy and not all that comfortable. Breakfast was overpriced and, while acceptable, nothing special.

We were pleased overall and don't hesitate to recommend this propery.

Very good place to stay!

from thelondoncabcompany
The hotel seems to have been built in the vacant space in the centre of the block. As a result the surrounding buildings absorb the noise of the street. Slept with the window open and wasn't disturbed at all.

There were only 8 rooms per floor and couldn't hear any noise of TV's, people closing doors, or noise from other rooms above or below.

Hotel is about 7 yars old so everything in fresh and new.

Air-con/heating in the room is whisper quiet and works well.

Rooms very big and comfortable and so was the bed. Bathroom also large & well lit.

Staff very friendly and helpful, within 5 minutes of checking in someone was on the phone to make sure the room was upto standard.

Location is fantastic. Mid-town Manhatten and a 3 minute walk from Times Square.

Didn't use breakfast room as it looked a bit pricy and with a quintillion delis and diners 5 minute walk in any direction I went native. Saying that I noticed cops having breakfast in the hotel and I'm sure they wouldn't eat there if it wasn't upto scratch!

Free coffee (and very nice!) on tap in reception 24/7

Good fitness room in hotel together with vending machines and laundry room.

Negative points:
- Shower not brilliant

- Waiting for a lift/elevator a 'peak-times' was a pain, but then my experiance is that all hotels are.

- Muzac in public ground floor areas wanted to make me scream

- being in the courtyard of the block the views were not great. I was about 10-15ft away from the window opposite and natural light is restricted, but then again if I wanted views I wouldn't have stayed there.


WARNING: If you sleep in the nude, careful when you open the curtains in the morning ;O)

Best Hotel for Seeing NYC

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just stayed at this hotel the last weekend in January (28-30) and it was fantastic. The location cannot be beat; with a short block walk to the lights of Times Square and easy access to any subway line you can imagine, you will see everything on your list. The rates are affordable, the rooms are bigger than average, and the hotel is off of the main, noisy streets.

I reserved two rooms, one king and one with two doubles, and hoped they would be on the same floor. Not only did they get us rooms across the hall, we had a lock-out and could open our doors to make one huge suite! It was awesome and we so appreciated the wonderfully accommodating staff. The complimentary coffee and tea downstairs was a great preparation for the blistering cold of winter.

I would most definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to NYC for the tourist spots and broadway shows as you are in the center of it all. The rooms are clean, the lobby is elegant, and the neighborhood is safe. Wonderful!!

Consistent Courtyard quality

from martdm
We stayed at the Courtyard December 16-19 of 2004. I booked the stay using Marriott reward certificates for some of the nights and was told I was only eligible for a king/smoking room with a rollaway for our third person under the reward terms. I called the hotel a few weeks ahead & requested a double/double non-smoking if available and was pleased that the request was fulfilled even though the hotel appeared to be booked to capacity that weekend.

The room decor was typical Courtyard style and surprisingly big with a good sized bathroom (unusual in NYC!) much to the delight of us three gals that were staying together. The espresso machine in the lobby was a nice treat as well!

The staff was pleasant, professional, courteous, friendly, and very accomodating, especially the cafe staff who were clearly overwhelmed each morning we were there. The cafe area seemed a bit small for the size of the hotel & did cause a 15-20 minute wait each morning before we could be seated but, considering the breakfast was included in the room, I can't complain.

The only pitfall I found in our whole stay is that outside street noises were very loud from within our room on the 19th floor, especially considering that we faced a nearly blocked in courtyard between two other buildings (sirens awoke me at night and nearby construction work awoke me in the morning). Admittedly, I have never stayed so close to a busy area in NYC so perhaps I'm just not used to being that close to the action. At any rate, it was a small issue in an otherwise good stay that reminds me why I like the consistent quality of Courtyard so much.

Great Hotel in a Pinch

from mrsparker3
When visiting NYC we usually stay up on the Park but during the holidays the prices are ridiculous, so we had booked two nights at the Cosmopolitan in Tribeca. The neighborhood and the lobby kind of creeped us out once we got there and we cancelled that stay and tried to find something better. We paid full list price for a single room at the Courtyard and it was very, very nice. Nothing dishy like uptown but clean, comfortable, and quiet. Our room faced 40th Street and it was so dark that we slept until 10 AM. The location is excellent for shopping and theater. We will definitely consider this hotel for future stays.

I would stay again 8^)

I've stayed at Courtyards before and I've enjoyed the comfort of the rooms and this one was no exception - modern, comfortable, clean.

The location is great and if you're there over the weekend, be sure to visit the street faire on Sundays.

The concierge was great! Very friendly and helpful. She pointed me to some very good restaurants.

With the exception of one person at the front desk who must've had a very bad day, the front desk crew was very friendly.

The only negative is that the in-house restaurant is closed in the evenings which is the first time that I've encountered such a situation at a Marriott property.

Very nice

from tlandis
Stayed the weekend of Novemebr 12 and using Marriott Reward points.
Excellent location, within five blocks of Macy's:only three blocks from Times Square.
Nice, large ,clean room: great bed.
Friendly and helpful staff; Complimentary coffee and tea in lobby a plus.
Just what we would expect from a member of the Marriott chain. Would love to stay here again if a reasonable rate is available

Good Room, Good Rate

from WSmith
The Courtyard by Marriot at Times Square South was excellent. The room was clean, ready on time, and the wait staff was very attentive. Only drawback was the room was slightly small.

Courtyard Marriott is Perfect!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Considering I had not been to New York before, I was naturally concerned about where to stay especially travelling with a 17 year old! The Courtyard Marriott was the perfect hotel in every aspect. The picture on their website did not look very appealing and certainly does not do justice…we were pleasantly surprised & very impressed when we arrived. I can assure you the rooms are very reasonably priced and extremely clean. The beds were made everyday & we were provided with fresh towels everyday too! The location could not be any better … literally on the doorstep of Times Square! The staff were extremely polite, friendly and helpful. …also very good on security! Get complimentary coffee machine in the lobby, which we used frequently! There were no faults that we could find … thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It really would be rude to ask for anything more! When we visit NY again we will definitely stay here again!

Top Local Tips for New York City

Use the Subway The subway is NOT scary. It's the most amazing transportation system, USE IT. You can get everywhere, quickly. We never took a cab. Follow the line colors and number or letters, you can get there. This was the greatest thing about our trip, and we loved it. Don't be afraid to just jump on, the worst that will happen is you end up in the wrong place, so just get off the train and return to where you came from, no big deal.

Grey Line Tour Bus A usful way for first time visitors to get a feel of the city. We particularly enjoyed the Night Tour. Beware however the quality of the guides vary, but it is just great to look.

Times Square area dining During our girls overnight to NYC, we enjoyed the following restaurants/pubs: Havanna Central -- Cuban, great Mojitos; Heartland Brewery -- great food and beer; calm atmosphere; The View (top of Marriott Marquis) -- enjoyed a fruity drink and, of course, the views and Scruffy Duffy's -- ok food; good beer selection and atmosphere.
