Spent a week at this hotel and was really disappointed so much so one of the first things I did was to email the manager but not even had an acknowledgment from her. I also completed the online survey early yesterday. Anyway, here is my honest review. We arrived early, as our original flights had been cancelled, when I say early it was a maximum of two hours earlier than we would have got our rooms. I had asked for two rooms together via email before we left the Uk and was told they would try and arrange it. We arrived only to find nothing had been done about my request. The receptionist informed me we could have one room but would have to pay $25 plus taxes to have it two hours earlier. After a very long 24 hours I agreed. He then managed to swap this room with another so we could be together, incurring a further surcharge. There are, I think 6 lifts for floors 1-20 and 6 for 21 to 40. However only four of these lifts actually worked (21-40) so as you can imagine there was lots of waits for lifts several times we went down individually. By the last day I was dreading coming and going to the room. I don’t think it is very good when we are in a pandemic to crush people in lifts like they are currently allowing. The bath in our room was disgusting rust in the bottom originally I had thought it was something else so got out some cleaning products and realised it was rust. A handle was hanging off one drawer. They have an online portal to ask questions I asked for an extra towel but just got an automated response and no towel arrived. Not quite sure what the point of that is. We checked out and incurred a further surcharge to leave our luggage in a secure space so we could pop off and lap up our final morning. It was $5 per bag which I think is disgusting. We have been to NYC several times and never had to pay for being early or having our luggage stored. Finally, my son needed to use the restroom and the security guard abruptly told him he needed to put his mask on. My son apologised out his mask on and went down to the restroom. My husband stood and watched a boxer and his entourage follow my son down not one of them were asked to put a mask on. I understand covid is causing a lot of anxiety but it shouldn’t be one rule for one and another for someone else. I don’t consider any of the staff were particularly friendly which is sad, first time to NYC where we have not been happy with the hotel. The only positive thing was the beds. The pillows were amazing. All five of us said the same thing. Read less

We stayed here for the weekend of Anime Con NYC. I was a bit concerned as this is an older hotel. I can say we were all pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed our stay. We were a group of 5. Two moms and 3 teen girls that were attending Anime NYC. From the minute we checked in to the minute we left we had a pleasant experience. Check in was smooth. We asked for a rollaway because we had a group of 5. We needed one of the larger rooms to accommodate the rollaway. Our room was not ready yet so they took my number and said they would call when ready. We checked our bags and off we went. Someone called a few hours later and told me the room was ready. We went up and our room was clean and comfortable. Our rollaway came right up. We called down and they brought our luggage up. Everyone we came in contact with was polite ad helpful. The hotel is conveniently located near everything. We loved having 3 restaurants right in the hotel and tried ever one of them. We felt the hotel was safe and Security was on top[ of everything. The first night our children came back from Anime NYC and did not have a key, security stopped them from getting to the elevators and coming up. The kids called up and we came down to get them. We will definitely stay here a gain when we come to the city. Read less

This was my first time staying at the New Yorker. I took the train from Boston to NYC and the hotel is literally one block away from the station. The hotel is also close to the theaters and within easy walking distance of other sights. The room was small but immaculate and the bed was comfortable. I would stay there again.

We stayed overnight for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as we are Parade Marshals who need to be up and out early. Once again everything was excellent at the hotel, from reservations, front desk staff, cleanliness, security. We were very pleased again! We will continue to stay at the New Yorker Hotel whenever we need to stay overnight in NYC!
