Located just minutes from Times Square and a host of other Manhattan highlights, Row NYC offers something of a microcosm of New York within its walls. Here you will find a European inspired cafe, a trendy cocktail bar, a 24/7 upmarket convenience store, as well as the "City Kitchen", a market selling New York's finest foods, all set within a modern, chic and inspired hotel that is a Manhattan institution.
NYC, a Melting Pot of Style
Row NYC is close to all the attractions of Manhattan's Midtown district and is within easy walking distance to a number of subway stations to take you uptown or downtown. After a day of sightseeing, guests at the hotel can relax by listening to their favorite music via their personal iPhone/iPod docking station or enjoy free cable and HBO on their 32-inch television. Row NYC also takes care of guests who need to take care of business with free high-speed internet and a desk provided in each room as well as an internet lounge.
Situated in one of the most exciting areas in Manhattan, Row NYC has the iconic Times Square, the theatre district and a range of fantastic shops and restaurants right on its doorstep. Renowned theatre productions can be seen nightly at famous venues such as the Winter Garden. MoMA, the MTV studio and ESPN Zone are all nearby.
The elevators speed very fast. Very comfortable beds. Very quite for most part except for outdoor noise which is unavoidable but not bad at all. Clean rooms. Great staff. The security is well above the norm, made us feel very safe. Locating is very convenient to all parts of the city. Loved the location. Rooms are small but we didn't come to sit in the room. There were two of us and we were comfortable wouldn't have wanted anymore than two in the room that we stayed in. For our first visit to NYC we had a fabulous time and enjoyed the hotel very much..
Lobby gets very crowded at times. Travelers using elevators for first time doesn't even consider that someone might be getting off the elevator and they crowd the door to the point you can't get off. No reflection on the Row but just be warned you can get run over before you get off the elevator.
-Staff was very helpful -Location was tremendous, 1 block from Times Square -Excellent elevators. Customized for each individual. Enter your room # and it tells you which elevator to use. Time in elevators or waiting for elevators reduced dramatically.
-rooms a bit small -bathroom very tight
Worst bed I've slept in for a long time. Very uncomfortable.
The rooms are comfortable, clean and nice looking. The hotel staff are friendly (and there seemed to be a lot of them). I was there for business and the location was right, but for tourists this is a good spot right in mid-town.
There is a trend in NYC hotels: take an older apartment building, add blue lights and video monitors showing abstract images, along with bottom-lit check-in desks and then paint the rooms an aggressive color (dark grey is good) along with huge blow up prints of images of New York. Underneath the paint and lights is an old hotel or apartment building. That's Row, with a bar and loud music in the lobby, and the ability to mark up the room price. (See positive too...because at the end of the day its a comfortable place beneath the veneer)
Decor, good beds, convenience, staff. Ice machine, good TV, Wifi! Elevators are fast.
Lobby a little crowded at times - but that's due to the popularity of the place. Facilities fee seems like a trick for making the rate seem lower.
This gem of a hotel is reasonably priced and is in a fantastic location. I have been singing their praises ever since returning home from my trip.
We have stayed at this hotel for many years, first as chaperones for a high school choral group that came every year when it was still the Milford Plaza, and now as retired adults who come to visit our son who lives in the city. We love the location, and the recent remodels add a very cool feeling to the hotel. Also, we are usually able to get good prices when we stay here.
The last few times we have come to the hotel, we have noticed just a couple of comfort issues. This last time, our room was very small. I know all the rooms are smaller, but this one was very tight. Also, we ended up with a double bed! I didn't even know they used those in hotels any more! Another comfort issue (and we have noticed this in the past two visits we have made) is that the roll of toilet paper dispenser is located in such a way that it makes it difficult to sit down on the toilet! It hits you in the side of the leg. Other than those issues, we have always enjoyed our stays.
The Express checkout is convenient. For the price, it was a decent stay somewhere mid-town in a pinch.
The towels and sheets didn't smell very good. The bathtub wasn't the cleanest either.
The staff was nice, the location is great, and the price is pretty good. The bed was soft, the room was quiet and dark. The lobby is pretty fancy.
My room was small and pretty crumby. The whole place feels like a big cheap hotel that Ikea puked on. It is updated with modern fancy(but cheap) decor and fixtures. If you're not trying to impress anyone and want a decent place in the theater district, I would recommend this one.
Kayak tells me a price of $150. Good price for a 4 star in NYC. Arrive and pay an extra 25-30 in facilities fees... you can't get out of those hidden costs even though they arent disclosed. Total BS.

I picked Row because it is across the street from my sisters' apartment.
The room was very small. There was no fridge we can use. I stayed for a week and i noticed the sheet was not changed for the entire week unlike any other hotel i have visited. The shower was not ideal to wash my hair or rinse off soap from my body because the water was running very slowly. The maid didnt clean my bathtoom as well.
location walking distance to many places
My room type was not available but thanks to Patrick We were able to change rooms 2 days after. they should have the rooms available even if your flight is late and don't give the excuse that they are sold out
Elevators are fast, location is good.
Bed was an uncomfortable double. Room has no cups or water - have to go to front desk for paper cup to take to room. Room was unbearably hot - had to open window and construction noise keeps you up all night.
Quick in and out, elevators are fast and usuall no wait time. City view rooms with single queen bed is great. You have good programming package on TV. Internet is very useful since my AT&T mobile hotspot connection was spotty. Needless to say, Timesquare, Subway train station , theaters and plenty of restaurants nearby.
First stay, I got a double bed , twin size. Hardly any place to turn. The second stay, I got double full bed, quite an upgrade to my previous stay. Third visit, I got a single queen bed with partial city view, which was great. Make sure to ask. Also this is not your typical full service hotel, no fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. can't complain, price is hard to bear!
They had a false alarm around 10pm. The person that spoke only spoke in Portuguese first 2 times. Since it was a possible fire it was very confusing and we were on the 24th Foor ! Luckily we were next to a Germqn couple that understood a little Portuguese and it seems the instructions were wait for more instructions. The 3rd time he spoke Portuguese and then finally English ! If that had been fire it would have been very serious ! Didn't sleep well that last night but otherwise it was a nice stay.
