Historical Traveller Reviews of Tudor at the United Nations Hotel
Thin Wallsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not the same experience as that of the 26th April!from darrylpmatthews
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 locationfrom brookesummer
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 Cityfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 Plazafrom FloridianinNY
Great place to stayfrom DiscerningDiva
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 Plazafrom paulyr
#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
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 PLAZZAfrom Daf10
Perfectfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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.
