Great Art Deco Hotel . Shame About The Staff

stayed here for a few days and found the room to be dingy and the so called refurbished bathroom only had a new wc pan and the tiles surrounding the bath having a lick of paint which was flaking of with black mould in places. the windows were filthy and the television remote complicated to use. the front of house staff were rude and curt but the security were pleasant.

great art deco lobby, great location, great price

A decent, clean hotel in a superb location. Room was fairly small but adequate. Good coffee shop in the lobby. Great for anyone on a budget. Would definitely stay here again.
By far the worst hotel ever stayed in

I had the misfortune of staying in the New Yorker last weekend for 2 nights while passing through New York after visiting friends in Kentucky. I paid 520 US dollars for 2 nights room only for myself and my wife.[ I paid 800 dollars for 8 nights in the Hilton at Cinncinati Airport and would recommend it to anyone] Firstly the room was a discrace. very dirty, very small, smelt damp wall paper looked damp, bed felt damp would not have let my dogs sleep in that room. The carpets in the room and in all th corridors were very dirty and also looked damp. The toilet in our room was the smallest I have ever seen. Our stay was a very bad end to an otherwise great Holiday. To top it all I got bitten all over my legs whilst sleeping and was scratching for my intire stay. The New Yorker is a total rip off in the Capital of the rip of cities.

The hotel is 75 years old and smells like it has never replaced it's carpets in all those years...but the 30s vintage bathrooms are a treat!
Good location so go after it has been renovated
Great location, but...

Just got back from my stay at the New Yorker. I will summarize my thoughts in the following bullet points for easy reading:

Good Points:
> Hotel is in a superb location. Walking distance from most major sites
> View from breakfast room is fantastic (floor 39 overlooks financial district & Empire State Building). Breakfast is all-you-can eat and is very nice with friendly service
> Food in the hotel restaurant (not the 24hr Tik Tok Diner) is excellent, with friendly service. Recommend the Fillet Mignon!

Bad Points:
> Hotel is majorly under-equipped for its size. Constant queues at reception / guests waiting around make the whole entrance lobby look like a shambles
> The rooms/corridors are in MAJOR need of refurbishment. Wallpaper patches, stained/damaged decor, badly stained carpets all look bad. Apparently refurbishment is underway but I saw no sign of this, and no finish date is apparent.
> Hotel sells itself on views. Due to the bizarre shape of the building many of the views look directly across at other rooms, so no have view at all. Be wary of this.
> Poorly fitted air conditioning units (rammed in the open window space and taped up) mean ZERO NOISE INSULATION! If you need a quiet place to sleep, then look elsewhere or buy some good ear plugs.
> Space under each door means you can hear the corridor action perfectly too - another sound problem
> Hotel lobby can only change $100 in travellers cheques (per room) each day (use Macy's to change an unlimited amount with 1% charge)
> Suites are basically 2 rooms knocked into 1, so have a bathroom at each side. Good for couples but our bathroom would have had that view we desperately wanted if it had a west-facing window!)
> Dig around in the room and you will find lots of dirt. I had rubbish underneath my bathroom sink that had been there for weeks. Cupboard shelves etc also very dusty.

Overall this is an okay hotel, but there are many issues that need resolving. The hotel has the potential to be one of the best in the city, but as you can see there are too many things letting it down.

A good location for those requiring a simple base to sleep.
Comfortable, airy, great location.

The hotel staff was very helpful, the room was spacious and comfortable and the location was excellent! The hotel is right on the corner of Madison Square Gardens and being a sports fan this meant I could watch the New York Knicks play live and then make it back to my room in plenty of time to watch the highlights. The views from the upper floors are spectacular and a real appreciation for the Manhatten skyline can be gained. All in all use this hotel, its very very good.
Comfortable and convenient

My friend and I are both seniors on a budget, and could not have asked for a better stay than we had at the Ramada. The location provided easy access to the subway, shopping, restaurants, etc. The hotel staff was helpful and always willing to provide advice, directions or suggestions. Our room was not luxurious, but certainly very comfortable and just fine for our particular needs. I would (and have!) recommended the Ramada Plaza to anyone traveling to New York.
A place to sleep

The hotel was really pretty run down, at least that can be said for the rooms - small, overheated, with a poor/old bath. The critique that really says volumes is that I got on the elevator in the morning to seek out a nearby Starbucks and encountered three other guest who all spoke of how hot the rooms where due to the heating system. Add to that the noise from the N.Y. streets with the windows open for a little air and it was not worth the price paid.
Sorry. I'd like to say something better. Let's see, the staff was pleasant, the little dinner was o.k. for breakfast, etc. Location was o.k.
Location ok, Worst hotel

Historical Traveller Reviews of The New Yorker Hotel

Would stay again without hesitation

from gonepackin
We arrived late morning via Amtrack from Philadelphia and had easy hotel access from Penn Station...we just rolled our suitcases up the block. Check-in was very fast.
Very good security your room card to get an elevator.
The room was just fine and recently remodeled.
All staff were excellent.

It was a short walk to Macy's and quick cab access to Broadway shows ...about $7 including the tip.

We were short on departure time so we did not try Penn station access to Newark International Airport but it should be a snap (a Towncar is $75 and a cab is about $50).

Average bathroom, cheap rate

from HansniLondon
Overall, it's an OK hotel. The room was nice, if a little small, and the television was massive. The problem was the bathroom - it looked as if it had not been updated in 20 years! The shower was not great.
The foyer was also a bit shabby, and the reception staff were not that helpful.
We tried to organise a transfer to the airport (early morning flight) and I'm sure the security guard just called one of his relatives, as he came in an unmarked car, instead of a proper taxi service, like we had asked for. He charged the same amount as the taxi service so we weren't too bothered.
Overall, not a great stay, but no major problems. Good location.

Great Location

from RoydSouthYorkshire
This Hotel is in a grat location only a few blocks from Macy's and Madison Square Gardens.
We had one of the rooms awaiting a refurb it was a good size. Not much storage space. Bathroom was clean and had fresh towels everyday.
Most of the staff where friendly a few of the receptionists needed lessons in Customer Service but apart from that everyone was fine.
Had one meal in Tick Tock, never again it was awful and the staff where rude!
Overall a great hotel for location!

Will not stay again

from Calcuttan
I had to make a business trip to New York and my company booked me in this hotel as it was the only one with rooms available at the last moment.

It was a terrible experience. There was construction going on all over the hotel and the lobby was worse than a train station with hordes of gawking tourists sitting around at all times. They even had two staffers checking room keys before letting you take the elevator.

The hotel had musty, faded carpets and the room was small and desperately needed an upgrade.

Will not recommend for anyone.

A bit updated since last

from Funny14225
We visited the Ramada New Yorker for our 7th time in 3 years and this time we were given a renovated room on the 23rd Floor. Dont be fooled by the size of the room, my disappointment was a Queen'd think Queen bed...when we got there it was a full-size bed...the room is the queen, not the bed. They no longer have smoking rooms which wasnt mentioned when booked so each time we went to smoke it was 23 flights down to the outside. Not bad, just gave us an excuse to walk around some more each time we went for one! Of course, I will always say I like the Ramada New Yorker because of the location to the subways and eateries. Its a great place. No receipt on the way out this time (which could be a problem when they take your card info at check-in), they said we'd get it from Expedia...I know that isnt true because Expedia didnt give me one the last time, the New Yorker did. Ah well. Other than that, not bad. The rooms did get pricier since they remodeled a bit, but I wouldnt say totally renovated. The tile in the bathroom and the doors are all the same. They changed the decor really, rooms are no bigger. Prices doubled from $159 a night to nearly $260 a nite now. Still, a great place to stay solely due to the location and the convenience to everything in the vicinity. Id recommend, after being there 7 times, that says something!

Very nice budget hotel, perfect location

from bice710
I made a spur of the moment trip to NYC and needed a hotel fast...found great rates at the New Yorker Hotel. It's about a block from Madison Square Garden/Penn Station. The first thing I noticed was that it was clean, well kept and well secured by all-night guards...nice when you are traveling alone. I came in very late, and was kindly received at the front desk and upgraded to a renovated room (I didn't see the unrenovated rooms, so I can't comment). It was small but comfortable. Bathroom fixtures were all new, and the bedroom furniture was new. There was a window air conditioning unit which was pretty loud, but I got used to it. It worked fine. The bedding was very comfortable and higher quality. It was extremely quiet in my room except for my A/C unit. I was extremely pleased with the stay. Knowing that New York hotels are unbelievably expensive, this was a great option at under $200 a night. The location was fantastic. I would stay here again.

Great location

from swift08
Just back from The New Yorker hotel, I was very unsure weather to book this hotel after reading some reviews but I have to say it was great. The hotel is spotless and our room was serviced every day with clean sheets and towles. We also felt very safe as the security at night would not let you in the lifts without a room key, infact my friend had trouble getting in to the room on of the day's when she went back and discovered she had forgotten her key.
Over all I would definitly stay here again as you have everything on the doo step.
Well done New Yorker, I'm glad I choose to stay here and I will return on my next visit .

ideal location

from sharonlafferty
We have just returned from our second trip to the New Yorker Hotel, and still couldn't fault it. The first time we went they were renovating although this didn't impact on our holiday. The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable. This year the rooms were much nicer and not that much more expensive, the staff were nice although they can be a bit miserable at times. Overall this hotel was in a fantastic location and very good value for money. This hotel is only one block from Macys and the Empire State Building, and 5 minutes from Times Square. The Tick Tock diner is nice for breakfast but can work out expensive if you eat there all the time, and it is terrible for a main meal so avoid at night. We found a nice diner next to Lowes cinema across the street called Andrews diner. The staff here were really friendly and the food was just as nice as the Tick Tock but half the price. We would advise against getting the phone cards from the hotel as you can only use them in your room, and although you have already paid for it the hotel charges you $1 every time you use the phone. I have recommended this hotel to other people and would definatley recommend it to anyone that wants a great hotel on a budget. We would definatley go back. If you go and go into Macy's don't forget to go to the visitors centre to get your visitors card. You go, show your passport and they give you a card that you get scanned when you make a purchase and you get 11% off.

Good place to stay

from Rob_Tuppen
The New Yorker is well located for mid-town Manhattan, and close to Penn Station and the subway. There is an abundance of local shops and eateries, and a cinema around the corner.

A short walk away are sights such as Macy's, the Empire State Building and 5th Avenue.

I found the hotel clean and well staffed. The hotel security was reassuring and prevents people from entering the lifts without a room card.

The onsite 24 hour diner was very convenient, although I recommend exploring the many other eateries nearby.

I had a rennovated Queen room on the 27th floor. It was small, but clean and functional. I was disappointed with the bathroom refurbishment and the lack of tea/coffee making facilities.

As an overall impression this hotel is very convenient, but in New York you get what you pay for, so don't expect 5 star luxury.

In summary I recommend to fellow Trip Advisor members.

Love this hotel!!!

from MnTLuv2Travel
LOVE THIS HOTEL!! We stayed here on business, after I'd stayed here a couple months ago for the first time. The hotel is a GREAT location, and the front desk staff is wonderful. I had requested a particular room because I'd previously stayed in the room w/my husband, and the hotel honored my request. If we had any questions, they were very friendly and happy to help.

The hotel room is extremely clean, and a little small, but that is to be expected in NY City. I had a fantastic view of the Empire State Building, which is well within walking distance from the hotel. Times Square is also within walking distance. If you don't care to do the walking, the subway station is literally right around the corner.

This hotel is and always will be the first hotel I check when I am visiting NY. I recently stayed in NY, and the hotel was sold out. The other hotel I stayed in significantly paled by comparison. The New Yorker Hotel is a great hotel, with a great location and fantanstic staff. What more can you ask for?

Top Local Tips for New York City

Sams stakehouse 34th & 9th This steak house was really something else; the service was 1st class and the food even better. It is expensive but you won't mind paying for it as the food and service is really worth it. One of the steaks actually cost $100- but a trip here is worth it. (Not all the steaks were this price) This place is more aimed at couples as posed to families.

Increasing Tolls If you are driving to NYC be warned that the tolls on the Hudson River crossings are now $8.00 and parking in NYC will cost you an arm and a leg!. Consider taking the ferry from Weehawken, NJ. The parking is way cheaper and on the NY side there are complimentary shuttle busses to take you around the city.

Unlimted subway cards if your gonnabe sightseeing def get a unlimited subway ticket, for just $7.50 a day you get unlimited use of subway which is brilliant value considering its $2/ trip normall.
