Needs a Makeover / Parking Nightmare
The location is superb and the staff is friendly. We had a decent view over Broadway. The price is b based on location.
Hotel is in desperate need of a Makeover. Missing grout in the bathroom, yellowing bathtub with soft spots, faucets missing screws and a thermostat that only knows "very warm", despite seeing it to 65 degrees (18C), no fan in the bathroom, are just a few of the issues. The parking garage under the Hotel is operated by a different company and is a disaster, both pulling in and especially when leaving. It took over an hour to get our car back, once ordered. Wr were told by others that this was common there.
Location is the only good thing about this hotel
Needs to be rehabbed. Rooms are rundown, moldy showers, poor customer service
The rooms are tired, evidence of water damage, electric drapes that didn’t work, carpet that has large bumps, air conditioners that keep shutting off, plus hidden $30 fee per day for access.
Location- that’s it.
We booked our stay online (as I’m sure most do). This was our first stay at The Manhattan but not our first visit to NYC. The website pictures advertised updated, modern facilities, which was true of the lobby. However, once you get off the elevator, you realize the rest of the hotel (minus one floor apparently) has not ever been renovated. Upon walking into our room, we notice that the wallpaper and paint are peeling, the furniture is chipped, the bathroom is covered in pale pink tile and includes a fluorescent light box is not even bright enough to put your makeup on. After placing a call to the front desk, we realize this is typical of a “standard” room. The modern and updated pictures on the website actually reflect the “executive” room. We upgraded as soon as a room was available, and the facilities were much more consistent with what we expected. However, we had to then deal with the thermostat being defective, so our stay didn’t brighten up that much. We will not be staying here again.
The main floor lobby was done very nicely. The proximity to trains & Times Square was a plus.
Our room smelled extremely bad & even the man who brought up our bags noticed it & said something to us about how strong it was. It smelled strongly of weed. That smell lasted from when we entered our room until check out, our entire stay. We even kept the windows open. The only reason I didn’t complain about it was because we had adjoining rooms with the rest of our family & we wanted to be together. Also, the room is in need of updating especially the bathroom. The water in bathroom didn’t drain properly either. As well as the hallways on the other floors. It seems as if the only update was done in the main floor lobby because once you take the elevator up and the doors open it’s like you’re in a motel. The rest of the hotel is dingy & dirty. The beds were extremely uncomfortable and I could not get comfortable with springs stabbing my back all night.
They have a new surprise policy on checkout where they charge everyone an additional $35 a night in what they call a facility charge to what you already paid when you originally booked your stay online.
Not worth the false marketing.
Super friendly helpful outgoing staff
Tub drained a bit slowly whichwas skeevy, and no climate control so we were hot at times but overall definitely good value.
Hallways were old and carpets needed to be replaced.
Location & service.
Great Location and wonderful people made this place worth being in NYC!!!
The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was excellent for our needs.
The hotel is tired and worn. It needs an injection of cash to update and refresh the rooms and fixtures. It wasn't the worst place to stay because it was clean and the location was great. The front desk was understaffed at both check-in and check-out. This created long lines and long waits. We had to wait an hour for our room to be ready because they were behind on their turn-overs and we arrived at 8PM. They need to hire more staff for peak times.
Just blocks away from the heart of New York City, the Manhattan at Times Square Hotel is centrally located for travelers looking to enjoy the hustle and bustle of New York’s busiest areas. Built in 1962, the hotel features classic Art Deco details that brings guests back to one of the most beloved time periods in the city’s history. The 685-guest room hotel sits right on 7th Avenue, making it ideally located for exploring the city. Broadway, Times Square, Central Park, and Rockefeller Center are just a small sample of the famous attractions located within a mile of the city and easily walkable for guests so inclined. After enjoying the local attractions, guests can look forward to a stay in comfort. Standard rooms start at 280 square feet and upgrades to these units include Broadway view and Ball Drop view, for those who want to ring in the New Year in the Big Apple. The Manhattan also includes five different classes of suites, including a 1,275 square feet Presidential Suite. The hotel does not have a restaurant on-site, but guests do have access to a grab-and-go breakfast before heading out for the day. However, dining options are hardly a problem for guests at the Manhattan. Being so close to all the action of Times Square means that guests are just steps away from a bevy of culinary destinations, featuring any cuisine imaginable. Central location and Art Deco nostalgia make the Manhattan at Times Square Hotel a New York highlight.
