Once you get past the unprepossessing lobby, the hotel is really excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was large, comfortable and well-appointed. It was bitterly cold so we ate in the hotel, choosing the bar's little plate menu over the Vlentine's Day special menu; each choice was delicious. Large, contemporary bar and restaurant (maybe showing a little wear on the cushions) and excellent service. Location, right on the corner of Times Square, can't be beat if you want to be in the middle of it all. Not cheap, but we weren't on a penny pinching trip. Worth every penny. Special mention to the concierge for fulfilling a couple special requests. As noted, the lobby is decidedly underwhelming although the staff was friendly and helpful. Otherwise, no complaints!
The Knockerbocker was a very nice hotel with a great location. My only complaint was the day that we left, we stored our bags for a few hours. When we came back to pick them up, it took 20 minutes or so to get them. I had to catch a flight. The front desk was unapologetic about it. They just stood at the desk, while customers waited and were dissatisfied. They need to make sure they are staffed properly at a busy time, and if not, other staff should pitch in. It should be a group effort, because it makes the hotel better as a whole.
Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
2 queen beds made this hotel perfect for our family of four. Located right on Times Square, the hotel held our bags after checkout while we went across the street to see a Broadway show.
Clean spacious rooms, good service, not great wi-fi
We came for the birth of my first grandchild.the hotel is very modern and sleek. Our room was large and well appointed with all of the modern technological conveniences. The mattress was very comfortable with high thread count linens. The bathroom was large and had more bath accessories than I have ever seen. I.e. Cuff links, tooth brush, paste, etc. I loved the large soaking tub. We never heard any outside noise even though this hotel is located in Times Square From the front desk to the doorman, the service was incredible. Leilani, one of the managers even gave us a gift for the new baby. I would highly recommend this hotel!
Impeccable service Immaculate rooms Excellent location between Times Square and Bryant Park Can't complain about anything.
The renovation last year really upgraded this NYC classic. Now the interiors are just as lux as the classic facade. Great location in Times Square but quiet and tranquil retreat inside. Great service and really friendly staff. We enjoyed our girls weekend immensely. Avoid if you don't like fighting through crowds at Times Square.
My husband and I were traveling with our 2 adult children and their traveling companions, so we booked 3 rooms. All rooms were spacious and comfortable. Decor was trendy, with high end amenities. We loved the rooftop bar and had a great meal at the attached restaurant. Location was perfect. Overall, a great stay. Some of the furniture in the room was showing some wear. And the desk chair was the only chair in the room. Also, the closet was very small. Not enough space to hang our clothes and coats.
The staff was very helpful and very friendly!
The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
Check in and out the staff were pleasant. Comfortable beds. Too focused on being trendy. Was advertised as a 4-5 star. More like a 3-4 star No coffee makers in room.
Everything was perfect
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
The Chatwal fires on all cylinders. Every need is attended to. Expensive, but worthwhile. The bathroom was amazing, but using the shower at full pressure actually caused a bit of a flood. The climate and lighting control is handled by a single touch-screen unit, but its operation is a little complicated. Light-switches shouldn't be confusing.
The decor and availability of room service as well as the location The hotel is very small and cramped. The floor we stayed on had a horrible fried food odor that was overwhelming every day of our stay. I did not feel that the overall quality was representative of a 5-star hotel.
Great service and nice rooms Nothing
19th Fl room was clean and very quiet, bedding was high-quality. Near (but not too near) Penn Station. Small bedroom, but big bathroom. No closet, just a small cabinet that could not accommodate a business suit, much less an overcoat. Elevators extremely slow.
Hyggelige og effektive folk i resepsjonen! Virkelig!! Pene moderne rom, rene og elegante, ikke veldig store. Bra flatskjerm og radio med iPod dock på rommet. Stor og deilig dursj. Dyr frokost i 44. etasje. Utsikten er selvfølgelig fin men ikke verdt prisen på frokosten. Kun meny frokost og den var ganske kjedelig.
Gode senger, dundyner. Nytt og delikat.Profesjonell og hyggelig betjening. Ikke ferdig bygget, bl.a. restaurant og uteplass og resepsjon var ikke ferdigstilt.Fra nettet oppfattet jeg ikke at hotellet var under utbygging
Sofitel var et perfekt valg. Hotellet ligger veldig sentralt i nærheten av Times Square og teaterdistriktet, men allikevel i en rolig del av 44.street. Hotellet har en god standard og personalet er serviceinnstilt, vennlig og oppmerksom. Vi storkoste oss på dette hotellet, og skal absolutt bruke det også på neste New York tur. Vårt rom var romslig og akkurat slik det var i bildene. Frokost er unødvendig dyr, det finnes mange gode og rimeligere frokostkafeer i nærheten av hotellet. Ingenting. Vi er fornøyde med presentasjonen i booking.com og er fornøyde med utvalget booking har i ulike byene.
fantastisk beliggenhet de burde tilby lette kaffe drinker i lobbyen
Rent og pent, vennlig betjening. Alt på hotellet fungerte som forventet, gode senger, aircondition o.l. Veldig bra beliggenhet i forhold til seværdigheter. Nei
Beautiful property, well thought out rooms, great amenities and attention to detail. They need to iron out a lot of issues - the hotel is super new so they likely will. Room service is expensive, not very good & delivered in cheap take out containers. Very slow internet - borderline unusable if you're a business traveler. Staff nice and polite but very impersonal,
Clean, elegant rooms, comfortable bed, great shower. Hallway noise came through the door easily.
I'm not one to write travel reviews but I had such an incredible experience here I felt the need to share! Came here for a staycation (roommates, amirite?) slash birthday celebration and our choice could't have been more perfect. In a word, this spot is snazzy. The decor, fixtures and furnishings are reminiscent of the Prohibition/speakeasy era with a modern, chic twist. Just by standing in the lobby you instantly feel a little more immersed in something cool and vibrant. There is a palpable sense of imminent adventure and intrigue here, definitely a boon to kick off your New York City escapade. Inspiration is abundant here! The rooms are immaculately clean, chic and quiet. Bed is ridiculously comfortable and also features hidden storage drawers, so be sure to check under the huge fluffy down comforters they're topped with! There truly aren't enough adjectives to describe just how accommodating and incredible the staff here is. So friendly! Everyone here is a paragon of guest services for competing establishments to emulate. If you're looking for a stylish, urbane backdrop with ubercool yet welcoming vibe to your Gotham City foray, book with confidence at Archer, it is truly a stay to remember! Check out is at 11, not 12. Only downside to this hotel, otherwise it is magnificent.
Decor was great, rooms were clean and mini bar was stocked with great snacks at reasonable prices ($2 per soda). Rooms were small but this isn't unheard of for Manhattan.
The staff was very friendly and professional. The even remembered us the next day. Evan was wonderful, positive and up beat. Everyone was very helpful, even moved us when our AC was malfunctioning. Rooms were kind of small but then we were in the a limited amount of space as far as the city was concerned.
Staff was courteous and friendly. Room and bath were clean. Goodies were on the nightstand every evening when the bed was turned down. We walked and took the subway to where we wanted to go. All directions were precise. Subway was 2 blocks We would stay here again.
The staff at the front desk was very friendly.
der er et bra hotell for fam me barn,rommene var ok i størelse.ikke så mye trafikk. at det ikke var komfyr på rommet..
Veldig sentralt i New York, Det var veldig gammel airkondisjon anlegg på rommene, som bråket veldig mye.
Sentral beliggenhet Hygggelig betjening Gode senger Eget lite kjøkken Rimelig ut fra standard -
Sentralt, prisgunstig, store rom. Fikk ikke kontakt med hotellet via mail før vi ankom. Ønsket en bekreftelse fra hotellet at alt var i orden før vi kom. Dårlig renhold på rommet. Skitne sengelaken.
Som utgnagspunkt for en storbyferie var dette hotellet svært bra å bo på. Korte avstander til Manhattans pulserende liv. Hyggelig og bra Italiensk restaurant dør i i dør men resepsjonen.Suiten vi bodde i kunne gjerne ha fjernet det gamle vegg til vegg teppet og erstattet dette med et vaskbart tregulv.
Location is excellent. Hotel was also very clean. Cold drinking bottled water was available for hotel guests which was great in the NY summer heat. NY hotels are expensive so must say Club Quarters is value for money in comparison to others.
Friendly staff, nice hotel, wifi with no charge, 2 PCs with Internet connection in Lounge for general use like on-line check-in for air travel. First room (no 611, at the back of the hotel) was small and very noisy due to air-conditioning outside in the alley. Staff were very helpful in transferring us to another room on the street side at the top floor (no PH05) the next morning. This room was more spacious and had more luxury. Noise from the street did not disturb us at all. Very well situated at 45th Str between 6th and 5th Av. and at walking distance of e.g. Time Square/Broadway, 42nd Str, 5th Av, Empire State Building, and even Central Park, etc. Café Manhattan right across the street is very nice for breakfast & lunch.
Location of hotel good. Had a room on the 10th floor which was small but adequate and reasonably comfortable. Free internet (with printer for boarding pass) in hotel - very useful.
It was quiet refuge to come back to at the end of the day, and it's proximity to Times Square, theater district and dining made it very worth while.
location room size -small
The location was great...Everything was in walking distance. Definitely would stay here again.
efficient welcome via the automated check in/out system and helpful and willing staff. Free use of computers and rooms comfortable and hotel very convenient for Time Square et al.n
The room and bathroom were spacious for a NYC room and with a coffee maker. The bed was not as luxurious as it appeared, the pillows were nice but the bed was rather stiff. Compared to the rest of the room it needed to be upgraded. The work out room was like being in a dungeon, ancient equipment, located in the basement in a really small space with low, low ceilings. A good amount of the space was taken up with an ice machine, soda machine & water despencing system.
central position poor view, and breakfast service in restaurant
Great location, low rates. Very poor maid service, hotel environment very quiet & boring, not a place you would hang out in.
Staff was overall friendly and very helpful. Conditions were clean and well maintained. Free snacks in lounge area : ) Free bag check and maps of the area. Some of the staff members were a bit unfriendly. View was terrible and we had a choice of a room with a view or ground level and we asked for a view of the city. We were given a room with a view of a wall.
Vi likte den gode beliggenheten nær Grand Central Station og Empire State Building. Rommene er ikke store, men praktiske og gode. Restauranten på hjørnet av 38th og Park Ave har gode småretter til en rimelig penge. Svært hyggelig personale. Det er skyvedører mellom rommet og baderommet, som ikke isolerer spesielt godt.
Conveniently located,comfortable,pleasant stuff.
The staff was absolutely amazing. Especially Rocky and Jenny. They were friendly and helpful and always with a smile. The rooms are kept well and are comfortable. The hotel is centrally located so most activities are in walking distance. I will stay there again when I go back in a few months. Everything was great!
Accomodations and staff were wonderful. Location is convenient and in an extremely staff area.
Delightful. Very kind staff, lovely room. Very good value at just over $200 Room seemed a bit humid
Location was excellent. I thought my room was way too small. I was in one of the 02 rooms and it was tiny. never stay in any of the rooms that end with 02. There was a gentleman in the library when I was there speaking on the cell phone complaining that his closet at home was bigger than his room. I asked to change out of my room and they said they were sold out. I will never stay at this hotel again unless I am shown the size of the room first. Otherwise, it was clean, good location and good staff.
Our stay at the Iroquois New York was absolutely fabulous. From the moment we arrived, we received excellent service from all the staff. The room was very clean and well appointed. The location was perfect. Vanessa, the concierge, was absolutely amazing; not only did she provide excellent recommendations for restaurants and attractions, but she went the extra mile in assisting us with obtaining a metro card for the subway. We will certainly recommend the Iroquois to our friends and plan to stay here again for our next visit to New York!
It was clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated, quiet, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service - from doorman to housekeeping to room service,, conveniently located, cozy lobby and library - in short - a gem of a hotel. Will definitely return!! Absolutely no complaints!
We arrived early and our room was ready. We were able to check into our room early which was very much appreciated after traveling all night on the red eye. The staff was friendly, attentive and the hotel was charming and very clean. Great location to everything. We really enjoyed the Lantern's Keep downstairs.
Convenient mid town location. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Wifi service. Pleasant and helpful staff. Tiny room with small window looking directly into a brick wall 6 feet away! The room temp was 76 degrees and COULD NOT BE REGULATED. The maintenance engineer came to the room and confirmed the high temp but said there was no way to reduce the high dry heat.
staff was outstanding comfortable room, if small great location older building with slow elevators :) small room (but it is Manhattan!)
Cosy and comfortable The ventilation in the toilet is noisy.
Location, Location, Location! Great mid-town location, steps away from shops, theaters and landmarks. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room although very small bathroom. Great restaurant! Small bathroom.
It's located near major attractions and it's the room assigned to my family and myself is a good size room. That it did not include continental breakfast
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
Historic property. They don't make them like this any more. Elevators were very slow and jam packed with people at peak hours. Also, there are lots of stairs in lobby making accessibility a challenge for disabled.
Everything was pleasant except the amount of external noise you can hear in your room, both from inside the hotel halls and the street noise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excessive noise from external sources
I went with my girlfriend and her 17yr old sister. Everything was perfect. The front desk personnel were more then accommodating and the room was beautiful. the hotel itself was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
The lobby is beautiful and the location is great. Upon arrival to an already expensive hotel, I was told I had to pay a MANDATORY fee for "free wifi and a 10% food voucher and gym use". I didn't want any of that, but was forced to pay anyway. I was woken up by housekeeping next door at 5:55am - no apology when I left at 6am because I couldn't sleep. The room was dusty and not very clean and I ended up taking the stairs from the 12th floor because the elevators were sloe, though those issues were nothing compared to the terrible hours and ridiculous fees. Do not stay here.
I liked the location and for the most part the room was clean and the bed was nice. I didn't like how most of the hotel was not updated and the valet service took a while.
Location was great Elevators were impossible. Had to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes for an elevator to reach the 10th floor, every single time we used them. Actually opted to take the stairs a few times to save time. Toilet in the room ran for almost 5 minutes after every flush. We were locked out of our room at 1130am, 30 minutes prior to checkout time. The "breakfast bar" in the hotel lobby had nothing but coffee and 2 bananas left at 10am, with no other options provided. We did not get a receipt at checkout, either, nor was one emailed to us. And lastly, we waited for almost 30 minutes for our car to be brought around at checkout because the driver was waiting for the doorman to call him to come around (which he did as soon as we came outside).
More dining, social areas
Checked in after a long flight from Australia at 11pm. Room was not made up and bathroom was disgusting. Went to receptionist who allocated us another room - same result. Demanded a refund, and went and checked in at the Westin. Very disappointed.
The location for the cost is imcomparable. I will definitely put this on the list next time. Front desk and bar staff were not service oriented. Bar prices are... well... it's NYC.
In general the staff was nice and accommodating. In particular the concierge named Aisha (spelling?) was extremely kind and helpful. The room was clean, and got the job done. I would stay here again as it was a great value and location. My 'Cosy Queen' was pretty small. If I had another person sharing the room, it would have definitely been too small. But for myself it was fine, but not for the clastrophobic!
