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.
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!
Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
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.
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.
Vi fik ikke det værelse jeg havde bestilt. Jeg fik et rygerværelse og blev derefter flyttet til et værelse med 2 senge i stedet for det første og der var ikke mulighed for at få et andet værelse pga manglende tomme værelser.
Rigtig god placering, rimelig pris, dejligt stort, god rengøring Lidt surt personale ved skranke (men resten af personalet var venlige), udsigten fra værelset
Sengelinned blev skiftet hver dag. Meget nedslidt og værelset var ikke særlig rent da vi ankom. Tror der er pænere værelser på hotellet, men vores hørte absolut til et af de værste håber jeg.
Concierge/Traveldesk var akt for farvet af deres egne samarbjedspartnere, så man var ikke neutral der der skulle vejledes om hvordan man fandt eller transport etc. ikke særlig hensigtsmæssigt og skjult agenda var ret åbenlys..
Central beliggenhed, - ideelt når man både skal up-, mid- og downtown. Fik lov til at vente 2 timer med at tjekke ud uden beregning (hotellet var dog heller ikke overbooket). Et par af fitness maskinerne er nedslidte (cyklerne).
Fint hotel men gammel og slidt værelse (især badeværelse). Meget lydt. Bestemt en opgradering af badeværelse til til 4 stjernet hotel. Jeg ved ikke hvad man kan gøre ved at der er så lydt fra nabo værelse
Hotellet ligger centralt og nemt at komme til fra lufthavnen. Subway, Macy´s samt shopping lige rundt om hjørnet. Alt i gåafstand.
hotellet ligger meget centralt, personalet er meget hjælpsomme dejligt med både diner og restauent i forbindelse med hotellet bruseren var rigtig dårlig rengøringen kom lidt for tidligt
Vi føler os mildest talt røvrent! Vi får lovet et værelse der er I nærheden af $3500, til den halve pris. Værelset er efter vores mening ikke engang den halve pris værd. Sengen var for lille til to personer, og der var kun ét lagen, til os begge. Et lagen, når vi ankommer I starten af marts og temperaturen er nær frysepunktet. Da vi tændte for varmen lugtede der af prut I hele værelset, så vi dødfrøs I 7 dage! Inden vi ankom skrev jeg til dem at jeg skulle opereres I ny og spurgte pænt om vi kunne få et godt værelse så vi befandt os godt under noget, der skulle blive en ret hård uge. De lovede os et stort værelse, men da vi ankom så vi på brandplanen, at vi havde fået det mindste værelse på hele hotellet. Så de holdt ikke hvad de lovede.
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
Everything was perfect
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.
The staff was very helpful and very friendly!
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 rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
I like the new trend of wood floors, as used here. Seems cleaner. The rooms are very attractive, but less functional than others. The beds are very comfortable. There are lots of places to plug in devices (regular outlets and USB) in several places. Elevators are plentiful and efficient. Loved having a Keurig coffeemaker. I interacted little with staff, but all I encountered in the hallways were friendly. A little off the beaten track, which is good in the city. And right next to a police precinct, which made me feel extra safe. There was no drawer-storage in my room (the closet is elevated, so you can put things on the floor of that, plus belowe the closet are two cubbies - one with the iron/board and one with a safe, but not really convenient for clothing). There was no countertop space in the bathroom for cosmetics, etc. No minibar, which is a sign of 4* and up, to me. And all that is provided are paper coffee cups. Some people may like that they may be cleaner, but I like glass glasses, and ceramic cups. Since I brought a bottle of wine, I asked in the bar if I could have a wine glass to take to my room and the bartender said he wasn't allowed to give one to me. I had a problem turning my TV off with the remote (it would just come back on) and a late night call to the front desk was no help ("Just turn the volume all the way down.") I eventually found a power button on the TV, but the desk clerk should have suggested that. At check-in, the clerk was not unfriendly, but when he handed me my keycard, he didn't really explain anything about the facility (breakfast, etc.) like people usually do.
Great value! We had an enjoyable weekend visit to NYC with a group of friends. We stayed in a Premium Room with 2 Queen beds, and a pull-out sofa. It also had a mini-fridge and wet bar area. The room was huge, clean, and very comfortable with tons of windows. The location of the hotel was convenient to our weekend plans at MSG. Hotel lobby staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would certainly recommend it to friends.
The hotel has a lot of things going for it, judging by our recent visit. The property is very clean, the location close to Times Square and Hell's Kitchen is convenient, and there is a subway stop on the same block. The room was very spacious and comfortable. All in all, it was a great stay. The only thing to point out is if you're a light sleeper, earplugs may be needed. We were on the ninth floor but could still hear cars blowing their horns and there is a police station next door, so sirens can frequently be heard.
LOVED the place. By far the best value in the city! the room was perfect for our family! The bar and lounge in the lobby ROCKED! Roman, the bartender was great! The entire staff was super friendly! 5 STARS !!
I have stayed at the Tryp several times (perhaps 8-10x) over the past few years. Overall, the room size is good, price is good, nice little bar downstairs. Decent accommodations for the money. The staff was so horrible this time around. Just overall not accommodating. There was no hot water on the coldest day of the year. My husband took a freezing cold shower and the just put their hands up like oh well!
Close to subway stop A lot of noise in room hardwood floors and thin walls, makes for a noisy experience especially with the exit doors being slammed by housekeeping all day. Could hear full conversations in the rooms from neighbors
I didnt like anything about it. I reserve a room with 2 Queen Size bed when we get there it wasn't reserve for us awful experience the man in the front desk he suggest his going to look for another hotel but we were so tired we just need to relax.
The best service and kindness help from the front desk lady impressed me , as the door keys were not working she took us to our room personally,
close to penn station I stayed for 4 nights. very loud and i'm talking about car trucks passing by it's people banging on trash cans and construction. The hotel is next door to a police station. room are good size but decor is modern cheap looking with dispensers for shampoo and body wash glued in the shower. I would not stay there again.
The location is awesome! The cleanliness and comfort of the room fit my needs well Front staff in evening is less than eager to communicate about the room availability and rates. I reserved the room via Kayak and the concept seemed foreign to the staff.
Good location Tiny room, too small for 4 people, could not open luggage. No coffee or water in lobby. Unfriendly front desk staff. Promised to move us on second night but never followed through.
Front desk was wonderful, just things beyond their control occurred. Shower in our room squirted from wall even after repair man tried to fix, had to change rooms, delay in getting extra towels from housekeeping--the biggest and most noticeable is the cleaning staff does not know how to properly clean a room, wood floors not swept in rooms and the space between glass showers and sink have never been cleaned--whole bars of used soap, hair ties, wrappers and etc in the space-- just totally gross-- room 306!! They really need a lesson in how to clean a room!!!
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.
Bed was very comfortable and staff was very courteous. The room had a modern updated bathroom. The room was very small.
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.
Great service and nice rooms Nothing
Clean, friendly staff, safe location, near Penn Station and Bus/Subway station. High speed elevators were quick and fully functional yet compact room, quality continental breakfast included. All rooms sleep 2 persons. Booked through booking.com and charge for room was not to occur until stay, instead the room was charged immediately, one month before stay. While Elements is a non-smoking hotel, you may encounter some large dogs. Rooms suitable for 2 persons only, would be crowded with a large dog as well.
My husband and I always enjoy the Element, it's got everything we need. We stay there 2 times a year while we work trade shows at the Javits.
It feels as if you have your own apartment. Element has thought of everything. The full sized fridge,nth silverware and the dishwasher. The most notable feature at Element is the staff. They are truly focused on getting everything that you desire to you and somehow seem to always go above and beyond. Great for locals and for tourists. Room service was missed.
Loved - the location although a bit shady at night due to the gay strip club two doors down, all the free food and drinks although it wasn't the best tasting at least they offered and thats more than you can say for any other hotel in the surrounding areas, the kitchenette came in handy Hated - the elevator situation too many people not enough elevators, the fact that they used a pasenger elevator as a service elevator to hual trash from the guests room...it was filled completely to the top with trash bags and we had to stand there and watch and wait as they got it all out and sprayed and wiped down the elevator so we could finally get back to our room, I did not like seeing so much of the inner workings of the hotel in plain view
The location is convenient to many points of interest 3 elevators for a 40 story building equals 5 to 10 minute waits for the elevator. The included breakfast is worthless as the space is so crowded and trashed by 8:30 that it is unusable. The kitchenette in the room has no value for a weekend stay and the space it takes up means there's no room for your suitcase.
Enjoyed the decor and atomosphere - great location and a great stay! Free happy hour and solid breakfast to get you going. Someone tried to come into our room at 8AM but we had the deadbolt on - never found out who it was or why they would come in with a 12AM check out.
Clean and comfortable bedroom, nice bathroom, location is very good, near Port Authority, Subway, Times Square. The elevators are just 3 for more than 30 floors, what makes it difficult to get in in the morning, when everybody is trying to leave. I took more than 10 minutes to get one since it always skipped our floor. The reception desk staff was fine, but just that, they were not friendly enough to make you feel they really cared for your stay. I asked about the value for a late checkout since there was a transaction in my credit card, and they just said that they did not know about any transaction according to the value I showed to them. After the checkout, that was the value of my late checkout.
Free continental breakfast in NYC !!!! nuff said
Liked the view from room could see the Empire State Building ,elevated wait wasn't too bad for the 39th floor, staff very helpful for first timers Didn't like that tv wasn't mounted on wall sat on a stand between bed and kitchen area hard to watch with other person laying beside you, parking was pricey and couldn't access vehicle unless u paid another fee, did not have good snow removal in street in front of hotel,
Breakfast, laundry facilities, nice rooms and bathrooms, kitchenettes, view, location Too few elevators for the number of guests. Spent 20+ minutes waiting for the elevator.
They don't give you any options or choices for early check in.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Easy access to elevators to rooms. Staff was very courteous & accommodating. No problems.
Great location. Nice size room. Friendly staff Had to take elevator up to lobby
Hotel was excellent - perfect location if you want to be in the middle of the action in NYC. Staff was courteous and extremely helpful. Room size was great, room was clean and comfortable. Excellent value!
Rooms were large compared to many other hotels in New York.
Flexible with checkout, very helpful staff. For the price, breakfast and internet should be included.
Location was awesome, and we were upgraded to a deluxe room with sweet views. Definitely worth it. Parking was confusion as address given online did not match where to valet park, which was awful because traffic around Time Square is insane sometimes.
I loved everything this hotel had to offer. The only thing I wish it had was an indoor or rooftop pool. It did not have a pool.
Took the wife to NYC for a romantic getaway, and wanted to stay in the Times Square area to be close to theaters. This property was perfect for us! Clean, modern rooms with everything we needed, and all within a short walk to the heart of Times Square. we would stay here again in a heartbeat. On the check in website, I made request for highest floor possible with a great view away from the elevator. We ended up on the 29th floor, corner room at the end of the hall which was everything I asked for. At check in I also requested late check out and was allowed 2.5hours which was perfect for our departure to the airport. this Hilton and its staff were top notch. Thanks! Room was cool, had to crank the thermostat to 80 to get warm . This could have been due to havering a corner room with lots of windows. Housekeeping, unfortunately, turned the heat back to 67 each day so the room was cool'ish when we got back each evening. Not a huge concern.
Hotel was very convenient to everything and very well kept. Room was great and had great view. Very spacious for NYC. No complaints.
Perfekt beliggenhed og nogle gode store senge og pænt toilet. Intet vindue, så der kunne ikke luftes ud og morgenmaden var ikke speciel god.
Meget god rengøring af værelse og badeværelse. Rene håndklæder hver dag og rent badeforhæng midt på ugen. God og mættende morgenmad.Meget centralt beliggende i forhold til turistatraktioner og kun ca. 50 meter til subway. Dejligt med safe på værelset og fri kaffe i hallen. I perioder lidt trange forhold i morgenmadsrestaurenten.Nogle af personerne i receptionen kunne være mere imødekommende med et smil eller et Hallo. Andre var mere serviceminded.
Bedre beliggenhed findes ikke til prisen. Oven i blev vi kvit og frit opgraderet fra quuen til kingsize værelse
Positivt: Beliggenhed, beliggenhed og beliggenhed... Negativt: Lidt nusset og gammelt. Men, ok service + personale.
OK Hotel. Fantastisk placering og service som forventet. Kun en enkelt receptionist som var uvenlig.
Loved the shower, bed and location. Our room was not cleaned after our first night. The towels were not of equal quality and some had a very odd smell. No water in our room.
View from the room was excellent. Staff was very attentive to my needs when necessary Nothing
Liked our room location (corner, 31st floor) Overcharged for drinks at bar, bottle of water (supposedly free) was not replaced.
Everyone was so nice from the bellmen staff and the front desk staff .They helped me and answered any questions I had.
Clean. Modern. Comfortable. Lack of parking
The Westin Times Square was great overall*. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was also very friendly and professional. Great location by Times Square. but the facilities outside our room were not. The lobby areas didn't feel safe as there were many people hanging out there that did not seem to be guest and the lobby restroom was a mess.
We have stayed at the Westin at Grand Central Station before and all of the Westins are very similar. The room was clean and we had a great view facing west over the Hudson River. We stayed out until 11pm and when we came back in the building security was checking everyone to make sure they were a guest. Some might see this as an inconvenience but I see it as very good security considering where we were. We are very happy with the staff and our stay. The air conditioning filter was clogged.
The room and location was wonderful Staff not so friendly.
Great location, great size of room, has a fridge in the room. I
Great location and our view was fantastic. No refrigerators
The staff was great! Room was clean and plenty big enough. Super clean. Excellent location. I would stay here again.
Friendly staff, free internet, stylish room, free brownies and chocolates, The hotel website promised us a rate that included breakfast. However, we were not able to actually book this on line.
Staff was very attentive! Everything was fine...
Location TV did not work. Food service not as advertised on web site. Under renovation so very noisy very early in am
Clean/Modern rooms We had a lot of trouble with payments (no record of booking and overcharging credit card 5 times) of rooms otherwise great stay
Great hotel, nice staff, good location. Definitely a good value for NYC!
Hugo, a bellman, was amazing. The hotel was fine, but Hugo went out of his way to make my stay exceptional. I lost my laptop (probably in a taxi) and Hugo spent a ton of time and effort helping me. I can't say enough positive things about him. I'll stay again, mostly because of the staff.
The hotel service is great. Hotel staff is very nice and they send the cards with the weather forecast every night. The location for the hotel is convenient but the neighborhood is not very safe, especially when you walk back to hotel alone at late night.
Rooms were perfect, staff were amazing!!! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud!! Nothing!!
The location was great for us, next to the port authority and Times Square. Wine bottle opener had to be borrowed from the bar. Other hotels I stayed at had them at reception.
Brand new hotel in a central location. Very quiet. Friendly and helpful staff, both housekeeping and on reception. Situated on a slightly seedy street: a couple of adult dvd stores and a Parole Office. The air conditioning unit located in the room is very loud. There's no coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Not really a bad point - maybe just a nice extra that's missing.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice rooms, great location.
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.
Clean, elegant rooms, comfortable bed, great shower. Hallway noise came through the door easily.
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.
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,
The staff at the front desk was very friendly.
Rimelig service Boede på hotellet for 3 år siden hvor det netop var nyrenoveret. Det er i mellemtiden blevet særdeles slidt uden synlig vedligeholdelse. Jeg vil gerne ikke anbefale det længere udfra "value for money".
Lå super centralt, rimelig størrelse værelse. Fint badeværelse. Fint med forskellige hovedpudetyper at vælge imellem, Der var ingen betræk på dynerne. Lidt ulækkert i fht hvad vi er vant til. Elles alt ok.
Super beliggenhed: tæt ved Times Square og dog et roligt hotel.Venligt personale, der kompenserede for overset ændring af booking tiden, ved at opgradere til Premium Hotel, og var iøvrigt også opmærksom på fejl i afregningen som følge af disse ændringer. Vi forlod hotellet med bevidstheden om, at der findes gode og reele hoteller i New York. Vi savnede en "ismaskine" på etagen.
Søde mennesker og venligt personale Ja, der var en del kluder I vores reservation, som resulterede I vi fik en del bekræftelser på en anden dato end reserveret og en del bekræftelser på den samme reservation. _Dette var noget forvirret og resulterede I at vi var nød til at ringe til usa og til booking.com
fantastisk beliggenhed og kanon super service af alle på hotellet
