Terrific for Tourists

The price we paid then was much, much lower than now--only $130 per night, which is about what nearly ANY NY hotel is worth considering the sizes and the fact that few have pools. But this one did have a pool inside a NY AThletics Club, but it was too busy and mostly a lap swimming pool. The room was clean and fresh and everyone was nice. The location is excellent. All was good, but right now the prices are too high (even through Hotwire)--double what we paid. We will stay elsewhere. By the way, Hotwire is no longer a good travel website. Some of the discounts are only $10--big deal for not knowing what the name of the place will be. Their reductions used to be about half, but no more.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Tudor at the United Nations Hotel

Thin Walls

from A TripAdvisor Member
THe staff were very nice. That's the best thing I can say about the hotel. It's an older building and is worn around the edges. The walls are extremely thin and you can hear people talking in normal voices in the next room. Earplugs are provided due to the thin walls. The lobby, the elevators and the halls are worn and need work. It's not a pretty place, but it seemed to be clean. Overnight parking is $40.00 and you must collect your car by 3:00 p.m. or the next day is charged. I'd stay somewhere else. In a word -shabby.

Not the same experience as that of the 26th April!

from darrylpmatthews
We got this room at a rate of $179 per night + taxes. We got there late, check in was great, the room however was not!

It was small, with very little natural light as the window looked out into a small "courtyard" with walls on all 4 sides. Light came in from about 10 floors up! VERY DARK.

The room itself was ok, comfy bed, sleep pack is a nice touch, but bathroom was small, again dark, cracks in ceiling - plaster coming off and paper off the walls!!

Now, we don't spend alot of time in a room in NYC, but the time we do spend, we like to feel comfortable and relaxed. That didn't really happen i'm afraid. We were dissapointed after previous stays at the Novotel & Hilton.

Location is good. Quiet. On 42nd street close to Chrysler building and within walking distance to times square etc.

If you want a bed, this is ok. If you want a decent room, I would avoid this hotel.

Wonderful service, great location

from brookesummer
My husband and I went for a weekend getaway over President's weekend. I'm a travel agent, and have traveled extensively, and knew that that particular weekend was going to be crazy in New York City, but my husband had never been, so I agreed. I looked all over at different hotels, and definitely consider myself cheap - I will not spend more money than I have to on a hotel. To me, it's a place to shower and sleep... because I will explore the city instead of being cooped up in a hotel! My favorite NYC hotel was booked, (Hotel Edison) and so I found a great rate at this hotel, and had to snatch it up.

This hotel was wonderful - from the moment we entered the door, to the moment we left. The doorman was wonderful, so courteous and thoughtful, and went out of his way to help you in any way he could. The front desk staff was wonderful, and any time we had to call down to the front desk for any reason, they would help us, and call us back 5 minutes later to make sure that the problem was resolved. (The "problems" I'm referring to are things such as more towels, another pillow, etc...)

We stayed in an Executive Suite, because that was the best value for the rate that we paid - $159.50 for 2 nights, $184.50 for the Saturday night. I would DEFINITELY pay more for the upgrade again. Our room had a huge jetted tub, a bidet, and a beautiful sink. Sleep amenities came with the room - lavender pillow spray, a sleep mask, and earplugs with a relaxing CD. The CD was great for a nice jetted bath... We also had a down comforter, and a very comfy bed. The room wasn't small at all, it had a small living area, and a king bed. For NYC, the room was actually quite large!

I did notice that even though everyone at the hotel was nice, as soon as they found out our room number (the executive 19th floor) they became that much nicer. Our floor only had 4 rooms on it, and yes, the elevators are small. But if you're not going to stay in a hotel because the elevators are small, in New York City you will pay $400/night.

Grand Central Station is a couple of blocks down, and is easily accessible. If you buy a Metro Card, it is good for the buses too, and you can take a bus from across the street from the hotel to Grand Central if you don't want to walk. The Empire State Building, Times Square, and several other attractions are all within walking distance. There's a liquor store/wine cellar right around the corner, which was perfect to pick up a bottle of wine for that bath! (Especially after walking EVERYWHERE - poor, tired feet!)

Overall, we would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. As a travel agent, I recommend this hotel to my clients. And if you're interested in a little more in a hotel room, I would recommend the executive upgrade. I think I have a new favorite NYC hotel!

If you have any questions about the hotel I will try to answer them... -------------

February in the City

from A TripAdvisor Member
I have nothing at all bad to say about this hotel. (Ok - The bill was a bit expensive, but you do pay for quality) I booked the hotel last minute and was stuck for choice of a cheaper hotel. But on arriving at the Crowne Plaza I was more than happy with the price. The room was nice and comfortable. And the hotel was a perfect base for exploring Manhatten. We were only a couple of blocks from Grand Central station and Times square. Everything was walking distance. (Even the Stature of Liberty but wouldn't recommend walking ther, as it took more than 2 hours!!!)

I have to say that I would stay at the Crown plaza again. The staff were very friendly and the restuarant was good.

Enjoyable stay at the Crowne Plaza

from FloridianinNY
My 2 girlfriends and I stayed here for 2 nights and were very pleased. The staff was friendly and polite. The hotel was small, but nicely decorated. We got this room for $135 on Priceline and they treated us well. The new bedding was extremely comfortable and pretty. We had 2 full size pillowtop beds with down comforters with duvet covers, soft sheets and feather pillows. Extra $30 night for rollaway bed, but it fit in the adequately sized room. Only 5 min walk to Grand Central, and there are lovely restaurants within walking distance of this hotel. Quiet and away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to all NYC has to offer.

Great place to stay

from DiscerningDiva
We stayed there from Dec. 2-5 and were very pleased with the property. Given that this is an older property, it is still in very good condition with obvious upgrades done to the rooms. The room was quite spacious (by NY standards) with a king-size bed and sofa that could open up into a bed if needed. A sleep gift pack of relaxation CD, lavender linen spray, earplugs, and eyeshield were provided for our use. We thought that this was a nice, considerate thing for the hotel to provide to its guests. The staff were all very friendly and courteous, which is a big deal (and sometimes rare) for New York.

The bathroom was a little on the cramped side--the bidet was squeezed in between the toilet and the bathtub--but that's a relatively minor detail.

It was in close proximity to subway and bus lines so getting around the city was easy. This hotel is located in mid-east Manhattan, approximately 6 blocks or so from Times Square. This is a quieter area of town so we didn't have a problem with hearing people and cars from our hotel room at all hours of the night like when we stayed at a hotel right in Times Square.

We really enjoyed the boutique-style of this hotel much more so than the big Sheratons and Hiltons. We would definitely return to this hotel the next time we visit the Big Apple.

Only two complaints about the Crowne Plaza

from paulyr
#1. We arrived by car and, exhausted, we let them park the car, for $50 + an additional $10 because it was an SUV (a non-Grand Cherokee) = $60 per night. I knew that going in. The next day I moved it to a nearby garage for something more like $32 per night. There are a number of garages a few blocks south.

#2. I think the walls (or doors?) are pretty thin. Some guests on our floor were having a party (so it seemed) in their room in the early evening. The noise was loud in the hall from the elevator all the way to our room.

Luckily, we were in an end-of-the-hall, corner room (which limited the amount of traffic outside our door) and once inside we could not hear the partiers.

Otherwise the room was clean, spacious enough, and very convenient to Grand Central Station. We got this room throught Priceline (around $220 per, I think).

Otherwise known as the Tudor...

from OliversArmy
Stayed here at the end of February 2004 - rooms were a bit shabby and most of the decor still appeared to refer to the hotel by its previous name - the Tudor - which given the high impact of the Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn brand I would have expected to have disappeared from sight.

Rooms were OK if a little small (I was not expecting hotel rooms in NYC to be on a par to those in London) - we were given a very small room on arrival but after complaining were moved to a large room on the second day.

Staff were fine - never ate at the hotel - there's far too many places nearby to need to do that.

Location is excellent - Grand Central is only about 5 or 6 mins walk away - bus stop opposite the hotel and the bellhop will hail you a taxi anyway!

NOT THE BEST CROWN PLAZZA

from Daf10
The stay there was the not the best. After booking to stay they for the price of 400 bucks Canadian, we expected it to be like all the rest of the crown plazza wow was I surprized. First the beds had hairs in them and were really dirty. Second when you ordered towels they were only give you half of them and you would have to reorder them. The excerise would only let 18 or older into the gym, which was not told. The parking which is about 40 bucks american was the most expensive place around, they even scrached up my car, and would fo nothing about it. Overall this is not the best hotel one could stay at. This crown plazza should be ashamed at itself!

Perfect

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent 5 days at the Crowne Plaza in New York, and we had absolutely no problems. The staff were excellent and extremely friendly/helpful at all times.

All rooms have LAN access with 1MBps internet access for $14.95 for a 24hr period, lobbies have free WLAN (wireless) which is free of charge anywhere in the lobby. There are also business rooms available where you can use a PC.

Each room has a mini bar, safe, fully fitted bathroom, TV/cable and air conditioning (a must).

Room access is via a swipe card which is easier to look after in a wallet than a key!

Looking forward to going back at the end of the year, it will definately be at the crowne plaza.

Top Local Tips for New York City

TKTS Booth Make sure you go to the TKTS booth as soon as it opens. We were able to get tickets for 40% off for both Spamalot and Avenue Q for Friday and Saturday nights in August, which was really made our visit a great value.

Don't Miss St. John's Cathederal Up at 111th and Columbus do not miss the world's largest cathederal. And across the street is the Hungarian Pastry Shop: do not miss it!

Rosa Mexicano Try Rosa Mexicano for upscale Mexican Cuisine. There are a few locations in the city and all are great.
