An imposing facility with a rather impersonal environment and little charm. It has an interesting location and comfortable accomodations.
At 401, 7th Avenue, at the corner of 33rd street. Close to the Madison Square Garden, Macy's department stores, and one block away from the Empire State Building. The hotel is 18 miles away from La Guardia airport, 17 miles away from JFK, and 18 miles away from Newark. In front of the Penn subway station (lines 1,2,3 and 9).
If you consider New York hotels, the rooms of the Pennsylvania offer excellent sizes, especially for a facility of this size. The decoration has no originality, but the environment is still very nice, bright and clean. You won't find a minibar, a safe or room-service but you will find cable television, individual air conditioning, a telephone with an answering machine, an ironing table and an iron. The bathrooms, decorated in beautiful two-color checkerboard tiles, have bathtubs and hair dryers
Located in an imposing building built in 1918, the Pennsylvania has 1700 rooms spread in 4 buildings placed like dominos. In October 2001, during our visit, the hotel was going through a large renovation project. 900 rooms had already been renovated, as well as the common areas, the lobby, and the elevators. At first sight, the hotel leaves the impression of a big factory with an impersonal atmosphere. The decoration, art deco style, is too showy and does not have much charm. Facilities are, in general, well-maintained and clean, with a downside concerning the weight lifting room, large but old. In short, a hotel without great distinction but that offers quality accommodations and good amenities.
The Pennsylvania has 2 restaurants, managed by owners outside the hotel. The Landy's offers international cuisine in a classic American decorated setting. The Benvenuti, as its name indicates, offers Italian specialities. The hotel has a coffee shop open 24 hrs a day, at the end of the lobby.
In 1920, the Pennsylvania was the biggest hotel in the world, with 2200 rooms. It has a coffee-shop open 24 h a day.

Hôtel vétuste, mais sa situation géographique en plein Manhattan le rend génial. De plus ses tarifs sont abordables. Je le recommande donc!
Situation au c?ur de Manhattan, les prix.
Un peu vieillot voir pire.
confort sommaire mais bien situé, face au Madison Square Garden, à proximité de Times Square, de l'Empire State Building.rapport qualité ok
Hôtel très bien situé, en face du Madison Square Garden, de Pennstation, à quelques minutes à pied de Times Square et de Central Park.
la moquette et les meubles sont sales et abimés, seul l'emplacement est bien
Hôtel au confort sommaire mais suffisant! Bien situé, face au Madison Square Garden, à proximité de Times Square, de l'Empire State Building... Bon rapport qualité/prix pour NYC.
Situation au coeur de Manhattan.
Confort basique, pas luxueux.
hotel immense , agreable , un peu vieillot mais propre, personnel nombreux et chambres très grandes , a recommander pour un séjour.
tres très bon emplacement, metro , hotel immense, nombreux services , bon hotel pour séjour entre amis ou famille.belle vue sur new york
un peu vieillot, manque de luxe et on peut se perdre ds l'immensité de cet hotel n personnel correct mais inexistant dans le lobby, bref bon hotel.
Très vétuste donc la propreté laisse a désirer... Bon emplacement
Trés bon emplacement en face du madison square garden et de la gare
Trés vestuste Sale de bain petite et sale
Tres bonne préstation. reste hypercentré, donc assez bruyant et un peu anonymisant
Qualité Prix En effet l'hôtel est peu cher pour uen ville comme NYC et les prestations sont très correctes
Bruits, petit déjeuner peu convivial dans une suite désaffectée et parfois bondée
un des plus vieux hotel de new york, ils ont gardé le coté classique en emménageant du moderne, séjourner dans cet hotel permet de faire un voyage dans le passé new yorkais.
très bon accueil, chambre confortable, bonne insonorisation,
le prix, bien entendu comme la plupart des logements new yorkais
Hôtel très bien situé , mais les chambres sont vétuste et sale
Au centre de tout , métro juste en face, Times square à 2 pâtes
Chambre un peu sale , bon juste pour dormir
Tres bon rapport qualité/prx et personnel très sympathique et à l'écoute. L'hotel est idéalement placé à quelques rues de Times square et fait face à un monument mythique de la ville de New York : le madison square garden.
accessibilité location hygiène personnel
grande capacité : beaucoup de monde
Un hall spacieux pour accueillir ses invités. Des chambres assez spacieux et un bon rapport qualité/prix. Cependant, une ambiance un peu vieillie par le temps, mais quand on vient visiter NYC, ce n'est pas pour rester à l'hôtel de toute façon.
Situé au coeur de New York City, sa proximité de Time Square.
Cette moquette rouge. C'est un hôtel plus pratique que luxueux.
A hotel well located in the shopping area, next to Macy's and the Empire State Building. It offers a nice environment and comfortable accommodations.
A hotel with simple yet very satisfying comfort. It has a environment in the purest art deco style and a beautiful restaurant, close to the Empire State Building. An excellent stop in the "Big Apple".
Located near Madison Square Garden, the New Yorker is an excellent pied-a-terre in the heart of Midtown West. Recently renovated, it has accommodations offering good quality for the price and hosts a large delicatessen as well as a restaurant, open 24h a day.
This late 1920s property was actually purpose built as a hotel, the Governor Clinton, and thankfully much of the Old World character from that time has been retained. It is similar in many way to its sister hotels, however the Manhattan has got a little more glitz and glam about it and has probably the best location of them all, being as it is right in middle of everything. It is a large hotel (526 rooms) and so can get quite busy, but is a great option for families especially if you want a hotel with a buzz about it and, as is usual for Affinias, a lot of space.
The Indigo is a mid-range full service hotel (minus the spa) in the Fashion District of Manhattan. Although its rooms are starting to show their age in terms of décor, they are in perfect condition and very spacious for Midtown and are fairly well-appointed. The restaurant, which has changed hands a number of times since the hotel's opening, now seems to have found stability and is a decent option for a bite to eat at any time of the day. The fitness centre, complimentary business centre and panoramic rooftop bar make of the Indigo a good all round option if you prefer to be away from the busier parts of town but still within walking distance of the major attractions.
Owner Alex Calderwood said he wasn't interested in being trendy, he just wanted to create an instant classic. Well, he has achieved both, whether he likes it or not. One of the most original, innovative and inspired hotels you'll see anywhere, let alone in New York, the Ace is a masterpiece from top to bottom that will attract backpackers, groups of friends and couples alike. Every aspect, and we mean every aspect, has been meticulously mulled over from the name of the hotel itself (see 'To Know' section) to the iron board covers' wording. Effortlessness and a carefree attitude seem to be the dominating characteristics of the hotel as can be witnessed from the borderline too-cool-for-school porters and the auto flush loos in the public WC. Indeed, as the caption on the stairs leading back to the lobby from the aforementioned services reassures, "Everything is going to be alright."
While this is a decent property with some spacious rooms, attentive staff and some unique quirks, we found it to be lacking soul and bordering on kitsch. Located in the fashion district of Manhattan, the designers have attempted to make this the theme of the hotel and while some may find their efforts quaint, we feel they make the property seem a little cheap. Having said that, it appears to be a well-run place, with clean accommodation with some good views and its location could be a lot worse. It would be suitable for both business and leisure travellers, although you could probably do better for the same money.
Staying at the Eventi is one of the best hotel experiences you can have in New York - the hotel just oozes coolness. But not that snooty, exclusive, look-at-me type of cool you find in some properties. This is genuine, fun, down-to-earth cool which makes the hotel such an enjoyable place to stay. Every element of the hotel has been well conceived from the spacious, funky rooms to the buzzing, good quality restaurant, from the professional spa to the most personable of staff. This well located, modern hotel has an identity of its own which is hard to beat for the money. Highly recommended!
Q. What do you get when you take $150 million and put them into the hands of one of the world's greatest architect/designers? A. The Mark. Be under no illusions, what Jacques Grange and co have conceived in the leafy surroundings of the Upper Eastside is now the yardstick against which all other hotels will now have to measure themselves. After over two years under renovation with some of the most sought after names in the creative fields working on the project, The Mark has transformed itself from a decent hotel to a hotel of superlatives. Everything is top draw from the design to the staff, from the food to the wellness centre. This all, of course, comes with the price tag that its quality demands, however rest assured that no other hotel can come close to what The Mark has to offer.
We're going to stick our necks out here and say that of all the hotels we have stayed at in this city, the Setai probably takes top spot. Of course there are many different types of hotel in the city and not everyone is looking for what the Setai has to offer, but as on overall experience, it can't, in our opinion, be bettered. The rooms are not only some of the biggest in the city, but they are likely to be the best appointed in terms of amenities too. The stunning, contemporary spa is as luxurious as it is spacious and in its restaurant the hotel has one of most memorable dining experiences to be had. But what impressed us most, and where the hotel rises above it competitors, is the consistent attention to detail and impeccable service the likes of which we've never seen. Although new (November 2010 opening), this is right up there with the old masters and the best thing is that it can only get better!
Let's not mince our words; The Peninsula is quite simply one of the finest hotels in New York, even more so now it is the other side of a renovation. From the very first moment you enter the hotel you'll have no doubt about the quality of experience that awaits you. There is very little to pick holes at here where excellence comes as standard: the large rooms are finely furnished, the restaurants of the highest caliber, the spa one of the most beautiful and complete in the city and the service faultless. Like all top class hotels this all comes at a certain price, however if there was ever one hotel which could justify the cost it would be this one.
We were quite simply blown away by this hotel. Rare are the occasions where there is nothing to fault, but staying here was one of those - it just couldn't put a foot wrong. Generously proportioned, impressively appointed rooms are complemented by a relaxed yet top class Italian restaurant, while the spa is a sight to behold. You'll have a tough job finding a property where the service is paralleled and don't even get us started on the views! A magnificent, modern and memorable hotel, we recommend the Trump Soho to all kinds of traveller, newcomers or old hands, couples or families. A huge thumbs up.
Although no longer associated with its Parisian namesake, the Plaza Athénée New York continues to offer one of the most refined hotel experiences in the city. Its style may not be as subtle as some of its competitors and thus some many find it a little overwhelming, but there is no getting away from the fact the hotel is a class act from top to bottom. It boasts capacious, well-appointed and recently renovated rooms (January 2010), a fine wellness centre, a celebrated restaurant and bar and an impeccable service from a smart, professional staff. If you're after that classic European opulence the other side of the Atlantic then the well-located Plaza Athénée is one to consider.
Take a step back in time (through a passage lined with suede and leather, of course) to the golden age of travel and the magnificent new Art Deco hotel The Chatwal. Opened recently in August of 2011, it has quickly become one of the places to stay in New York and to be honest, it isn't difficult to see why: a dream location in the heart of Manhattan, superbly appointed, world ?class accommodations, a luxury spa and a fine restaurant. Marrying both old world glamour and modern day luxury, this 'baby grand' hotel will appeal to those looking for good old fashioned service in a romantic setting with everything that makes this a great city within reach.
This mythical New York hotel has seen its fair share of changes, both within in its walls and outside, however one thing remains constant: The Carlyle is one of the swankiest, smartest, seductive hotels in the city. The very few flaws of the hotel (for example the size of some bathrooms) can be excused by its age; otherwise there are very few hotels of this genre which can claim to offer a similar experience. Not only does it offer top notch service and facilities, but its location and commanding views are also something spectacular. Throw in a rich history, fine dining and exquisite décor and you get a hotel (literally) fit for kings. If you've got the cash, don't even ask yourself the question?
The Pierre has always been a landmark hotel in New York City?and we are glad to report that after its latest $100 million renovation following its takeover by Taj Hotels, it is still very much one of the hotels by which others must judge themselves. It is true to say that it may not have some of the facilities of some of the other top hotels (no spa, smaller rooms), but when it comes to service, style and sophistication, not to mention history, it is untouchable. With a location that would make most hotels weep with envy, fabulously appointed rooms with an Asian touch and a new, top quality restaurant, The Pierre is back on top of its game and ready to welcome once again all types of traveller, no matter their motive for visiting the city. All this comes, of course, at a price, but if you had to choose a place to spend your hard earned cash, this has got to be near the summit of your shortlist.
