Hotel in a good location - many shops and attractions within a few blocks.

The Rooms (Junior Suite)was spacious and comfortable although the furnishing and decor is rather dated.

The fitness centre was small and dated but well maintained.

The price was reasonable although on a par with some better equipped and furnished Hotels.

Found the restaurant menu limited and they did not do breakfast. There ,are, however, many places doing breakfast within walking distance.

We went for the 4th of July Fireworks- great location for that event. One of the entrances to the East River Dr. fireworks venue was just a few blocks from the hotel.

Spacious Living Room, Bedroom, Bath and Kitchen at a highly competitive price. Decor of suite and hotel a bit dated, but something has to give with the rate! Helpful service and convenient Midtown location.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Eastgate Tower Suites Hotel

a good choice

from nyclover
The best part of the stay here was on check out when I opened my bill.
For 3 nights, a spacious one bedroom suite cost only 625 dollars including taxes. After spending a lot of money in the city, an inexpensive hotel is a bonus when all is said and done. The rooms were a little dreary but perfect for a family that needs a lot of room to spread out. There was also very little street noise or noise from other guests. I was able to sleep quite comfortably and feel safe and secure.
The location is good although a bit of a hike to fifth avenue but perfectly situated between up and downtown and Grand Central. A straight run down to the east village and Union Square also. A good choice all in all!

Fantastic

My husband and I stayed at the Eastgate Suites from 3/16-3/22/04. We were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms themselves are modest but large and the windows actually open! The hotel is in a great location and we found it to be very quiet, both inside and out. We loved having the kitchenette where we could make bkfst and coffee or have light snack and keep a bottle of wine. The bathroom is small-ish but has great storage and the shower was great with plenty of pressure. I would definitely stay there again. We found the staff to be friendly and attentive as well. As for the maid service, it was excellent. We are late risers and it only took her one day to figure that out. Thanks again Eastgate Suites!

Excellent Find!

from A TripAdvisor Member
I had to be in New York City for a week in the beginning of March. This hotel was absolutely wonderful for the price I paid. The staff was very nice and helpful to me even though I wasn't their regular type of customer, and the room and bathroom were spacious and clean. The location is excellent if you like that Times Square area (I do not, but the Village is just a train-ride away) and I was able to take care of my business without any hitches. As for noise, either I didn't notice any or I'm immune. The tiny kitchen had two different sized pots, one pan, four each of butter knives, spoons, forks, large and small plates, cups, wine glasses, and bowls. There was plenty of storage space and the bed was lovely. I would definitly stay there again. Thanks to the other reviewers as well.I only had two complaints: On my first day there was a smoker lurking somewhere and there was no Cartoon Network channel.

So-so hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a basic 3* hotel in a good location with rooms geared towards the business/long stay market - the room facilities include kitchenette with microwave, fridge, some cutlery, plus wireless LAN available to hire. Most of uptown Manhattan's attractions are within a 15 minute walk.

We stayed on the 3rd floor in a room which didn't look out over the road, so no noise problems there.

Unfortunately, the walls are very thin - amongst other things, you can hear water running and toilets flushing from the room next door. The room itself was large and spacious, but it did smell a little musty despite being on a non-smoking floor.

The staff are very friendly and well informed. As stated in previous reviews, they are happy to arrange a late checkout even when the hotel is full.

Overall, not a bad place to stay, but nothing special.

Okay

from Popota
I stayed at that hotel on business and was fairly disappointed. It is like a 3 star hotel in Europe. The room was large and clean, but the bathroom is tiny and, having stayed on the 5th floor, there was lost of noise from the street. I ordered breakfast as room service and it was awful, packed in a paper bag, not good, and the delivery boy was not very nice. Plus, to order breakfast you have to make an outside phone call that they charge! The kitchen is alright, not many dishes and pans though. The bed was very large and confortable. It's a good place to stay for a longer period if you don't expect luxury or great service.
Nicely located.

Top Notch Service

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've stayed in many New York hotels within the same star rating and price range and Eastgate Tower is by far the finest. What you will primarily notice about this place is the friendly and efficient staff.
I liked the fact that we were allowed a late checkout due to our train leaving Grand Central at 3PM. Great location too and yes Sarge's Deli down the street makes great sandwiches and there is a nice bakery on the corner that makes wonderful danishes and coffee. I would sit there every morning and watch the New Yorkers bustle off to work. I miss those mornings. Will be staying at Eastgate on my next visit. Thanks to the people who posted their reviews here for tipping me to this fine hotel!

Fantastico!

from A TripAdvisor Member
What a great find! I can only echo the sentiments of everyone else who has posted here. This hotel has it all, great value, great location, and great staff! It seems that half the world were heading to the Eastgate Tower for Valentine's weekend, as that was when my wife and I stayed also. A great weekend was only enhanced by the fact that we had a wonderful room, huge in size, pefectly clean, and with everything you could need on hand. In fact, the staff are so helpful there, that one morning we went out having forgotten to wash up our breakfast dishes.
When we returned we found they had been washed and dried up for us! A small thing, but it is the details like this that can really enhance a place's reputation. The location is great also, especially if you are in town for a good old trawl around the shops, an easy walk and you are at 42nd Street, Macy's, etc. Little tip, but if you go to Macy's, go to floor 1 & 1/2, to the customer centre, tell them you are a tourist intending to shop, and you will be given a card that gives 11% off all goods! Bargain city! Once again, I can only recommend the Eastgate, a great place to stay in NYC!

Best value in NYC

from A TripAdvisor Member

Loved having the parking garage adjacent.. safe area.Staff was kind and attentive...something else unusual in a hotel in NYC..we will be back

Loved It, Loved It, Loved It!!!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel from February 15-17 and it was fabulous! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! We stayed in a Junior Suite which included a kitchenette. Inside of the kitchenette there is a stove and oven, a sink including a small bottle of Palmolive dishwashing detergent and dish cloths, a lot of cabinet space which held a small frying pan and a medium sized sauce pan and 4 dinner plates, 4 saucers, 4 coffee cups, 4 drinking glasses and 4 champagne/wine glasses. Inside of the kitchen drawer we found all of the silverware/utensils we needed including 4 forks, 4 teaspoons, 4 knives, 4 tablespoons, a cutting knife, and a can opener which also included a bottle opener. The kitchen held a regular sized garbage can and also had a cutting board. There was also a regular sized refrigerator.

In the other room there was a table for two for us to eat at which could also double as a desk. There was plenty of closet (3 closets) space and drawer space. There was a couch directly opposite our King Sized Bed which pulled out to a Queen Sized sofa bed. The room also had a 19 inch color TV and you are given the option of playing Playstation games through the television (for an hourly rate), ordering pay per view movies, and paying to access the jukebox through the television.
There are a few interactive features on the television, one of which allows you to view your bill and checkout through the tv.

We ordered room service from the restaurant in the hotel and the food is delicious. They specialize in Italian food and we ordered around 8 PM and had our dinner in 15 minutes. There is a menu for room service and for breakfast from a diner nearby. You can get breakfast almost as quickly as the room service dinner when you order. Breakfast was great too! a good tip: When you order breakfast ask them to send you a menu because they have great food! You might want to ask the front desk for menus to nearby restaurants too. One of the places that has great food is Sarge's.

The room had great decor and, the bathroom was nice and clean and the hotel provides you with their own conditioner shampoo, mouthwash, body wash, and moisturizer. The soap that they provide smells heavenly. Even better than some of the soaps that I've used at the larger more expensive hotels. It smells like there's Eucalyptus oil in it.

My husband and I added a few of the romance specials to our room. The first night we had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and we had the rose petal turndown. We had asked for this to be in the room upon arrival but there was a slight mixup with the time. I called down to the front desk letting them know what time we would be going out and when we came back rose a trail of rose petals led from the door to the bed, our sheets were turned down, and rose petals were scattered on the bed in the shape of a heart and a long stem red rose with baby's breath and palm was placed in the center of the heart.

The staff is very accomodating and helpful. Check-out is at 12 Noon but they are willing to make arrangements if you would like to check out at a later time. We checked out at 2PM.

Grand Central Station is within walking distance of the hotel and there are a lot of great stores as well as supermarkets in the area. There are a few liquor stores and banks as well.

If you want to stay at a place that will feel like home, try the Eastgate. We will definitely be staying there again. We also would ike to try some of the other Affinia properties.

Extremely comfortable hotel, excellent for sightseeing

from Breck_newbie
We stayed at the Eastgate Towers over Valentine's weekend on our first ever visit to New York and found the hotel to be very comfortable and clean. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite as soon as we arrived, having originally booked a studio suite, by very friendly and accommodating reception staff. The rooms were huge and very well maintained, with clean sheets and towels provided every day. We too were slightly apprehensive, having heard horrific stories of other NY hotels, but were very pleased with our choice and would recommend it to others. It was excellently located for all sightseeing attractions, shops, restaurants and cafes and we were able to walk to most places.
The staff kindly let us store our suitcases all day and pre-booked us a taxi to the airport. Overall this hotel is excellent value for money and a particularly good base for seeing the sights of New York.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Macy's Enter Macy's go to the 2nd floor Vistors centre for a 11% discount card, note you will need your passport.

Walking around New York Don't stress about the city and the fact that it's so big. Just find a nice area, don't make too much of big agenda, and walk around for a few hours. Everything is easier to deal with on foot, and you see a lot more than just whizzing by in a bus/cab/car.

Macys and Bloomingdales Go to the visitors centre to get your tax discount voucher. You will need to show your passport but it is worth the saving and in Bloomingdales you get a free gift if you spend $100. I got a nice shopping bag
