Known as the "Crossroads of the World", Times Square is a dazzling intersection famed for its lavish neon signs, grand theaters, and pulsating crowds. Whether you're on your way to a Broadway show, a buzzing bar or one of the family-friendly restaurant that line the streets, look out for iconic structures like the Paramount Building and One Times Square – site of the celebrated New Year's Eve ball drop.
One of the art capitals of the world, Chelsea has literally hundreds of renowned galleries to explore, including the Gagosian and the Gladstone. A taste of New York life can be had at Chelsea Market, a vast warren of artisan food stalls. The High Line, an elevated promenade, offers fantastic views of this upscale neighbourhood, while the Chelsea Piers – intended destination of the Titanic – is a great Manhattan landmark.
Think "New York City" and the sights of Midtown East will spring to mind . There's the towering Art Deco splendor of the Chrysler Building, the gleaming edges of the Empire State Building, and the opulence of Grand Central – arguably the world's most famous train station. For top flight shopping, make your way to Saks Fifth Avenue, and you can even walk the corridors of power at the UN Headquarters.
Anyone visiting the Big Apple will want to explore Midtown West – this is where the razzle dazzle of Times Square is, after all. Take in a show on Broadway or, if you fancy giving your mind a workout, take a tour of the celebrated Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA). And when your tummy starts rumbling, check out the French brasseries, sushi bars and Russian eateries on Restaurant Row.
Sandwiched between the winding Hudson River and lush Central Park, Manhattan's Upper West Side is home to New York's most exclusive high-rise apartments, as well as Columbia University. The American Museum of Natural History makes it a history-buff's dream, while the Lincoln Center showcases everything from opera to jazz. A stroll around Riverside Park in full bloom is a fine way to spend a sunny day.

"Small room and some distance away from subway"
Reviewed by a Hotels.com guest on Dec 13, 2013
We stayed in a 2 double beds room which is very small and we hardly had enough space to put our luggage and walk. Overall, the room is clean but the curtains are dirty and can't be closed completely such that people from outside can see you in the room. It's not located very near to subway station, have to walk for 5 mins to subway station and 10 mins to Times Square. Neighbourhood is quiet at night. Breakfast is nice with eggs, waffle, sausages and pastries.
"Not Luxury, But clean and reasonably priced"

For the price paid, one could get a really nice hotel overseas. But this is New York! I love this city and this hotel provides a good base to run around. Its ver conveniently located and its clean, which is most important! The room I had (I was alone) was very small. No desk and limited space. But if you're not bothered about that, its okay. The staff were friendly and wifi was free and fast.
"Good location, small room"

The location is good as it is next to the subway 1. Convenient and friendly neighbourhood. Not far from main hustle and bustle of the city. The hotel is clean but room is very small. It comes with Free WiFi which made the stay very pleasant!. The reception staff is friendly and helpful.

The hotel is located at a safe vicinity which you can return even late in the evening. The free continental breakfast is great and they also serve sausages,omelette and hard boiled eggs.The do it yourself waffles is excellent. The staff are friendly and gave good informations on directions of places you want to visit. Fresh air from Central Park and nearby restaurants and shops make this a good location to spend your holidays. The nearby Penang Restaurnat serve excellent Asian food and you get 10% off your bill when you mentioned the hotel name. With the 2 nearby subway stations about 5 mins away you can go to anywhere within New York. One minus point is that the hotel room uses window air-cons which is quite noisy when you sleep. However, with the window slightly opened the fresh cool air from outside is even better without the air-con.

The hotel is excellently located with good-sized room. Situation within wlaking distance to Times Square (15mins' walk) and complimentary parking available. The website indicated Internet available on complimentary as well...however, it is disappointing that the lobby/front office night service staff denied what they had listed and insisted to collect USD6.00 before handling the Password for the internet connection to us (despite that we had pointed out that it should be complimentary as printed in our booking confirmation form from hotels.com. The day front-office staffs were not helpful as well (although they did not insisted to collect any fee for internet usage). She refused to assist in questions regarding internet connections and advised that guests will have to contact the Internet Service Provider directly. She wasn't helpful with road directions as well...

Our fears about poor service and room condition were unfounded. The only inconvenience was the wireless service which was available only in the hotel lobby. Terribly inconvenient.
The location was very good and the eateries nearby are affordable and quite good. The Japanese restaurant opposite the hotel provides good bento sets! The service here was also very good.
The full bed was very comfortable and spacious enough for two persons. However on our last night in New Yorik, 4 May (we booked only one night this round as we were flying off on the 5th) we were given a renovated room on the 2nd floor. The room was nice but the bed was much smaller and was a bit of a squeeze for two persons. The renovated toilet/bathroom was better than the one on the ninth floor.
Hotel was quiet (no noisy guests to disturb your sleep).
