An Art Deco icon sharing the Midtown skyline with the Empire State Building, the Wyndham New Yorker is conveniently situated to access all of Manhattan. The Wyndham's famous, imposing building-block exterior gives way to a fantastic world inside, where guests can sip cocktails, host a Bat Mitzvah, host a conference or a ball, or simply relax in privacy and comfort.
About the Hotel
The Wyndham is a perfect hotel for business travelers: guest rooms include a large work table and free wireless internet access, and the hotel's 24-hour AV-equipped business center, which boasts 14 conference rooms and 23,000 feet of space, is able to handle conventions of any size. The Wyndham New Yorker also offers plenty of conveniences for solo and family travelers, who can relax with a brew from their own personal espresso machine, bring their pets, or make use of the concierge's ample booking services.
As well as being an icon in itself, the Wyndham is at the doorstep of Madison Square Garden, and a short walk from both Bryant Park and the Highline Park. Easily accessible from Penn Station, guests can quickly travel downtown to explore the charms of the West Village and Tribeca, while those looking to tread the not-so-beaten path will find a world of wonders, smells and tastes in nearby Koreatown, which offers some of the best food in the city.
The location was incredible. The availability of restaurants and entertainment only short walks. The Maid service was excellent with a request !
I did not appreciate The facility fee, especially considering the poor Wifi stability, the room didn't have a small refrigerator, no fan in the bathroom. We could hear other travelers easily in their respective rooms. Also, there was no small coffee maker.
Dirty, small room, phone not working
The location of the hotel is great for catching a show.
We decided to use the valet service for our vehicle despite the $70 charge--we wanted to pamper ourselves to a hassle-free experience. Unfortunately, the $70 fee did not come with commensurate level of service. Upon checking out, we had to wait an hour for our car to be brought to the hotel and it wasn't even busy. This caused us to miss a brunch reservation with family. When I brought my concerns to the concierge I was told to wait at the front desk. After more than 5 minutes, nobody came out to talk to me. I can't say enough to discourage anyone from thinking of using the valet service. On top of this, the bed was rather uncomfortable. Use this hotel for business, not if you want a full service experience.
When I check out I asked if there was any extra charge, and they said "no". The next day my credit card inform me that the hotel make a charge of 24 uss. Shame!!!
Location! Also the room was nicely clean and well appointed.
Though I expected it, room was NY small. We didn't mind it, but you have just enough room to walk around the bed.
Good size rooms. Good Italian restaurant attached.
Bathroom was horrible. Too small, outdated, paint chipping.
I liked many of the non-management employees. They were friendly and accommodating and the location near Penn Station is ideal.
A manager made me feel very belittled and uncomfortable. the rooms have no privacy. the bathroom door doesn't shut and the door the hallway has a huge gap underneath so nothing in the room itself is private.
We've stayed at several NYC hotels during our visits and they are usually the boutique type. These rooms were very adequate and the staff was helpful. If you aren't used to NYC hotels then the rooms will seem small but they are big enough if you don't expect to do cartwheels. The noise level was fine considering how busy the area is. The higher you go on the floors the less noise there will be. There is a 24/7 diner in the hotel which was appreciated in between other dining options. The E subway line runs directly under the hotel which gets you from Central Park to the World Trade Center. This made it easy to get north or south quickly without having to wait and figure out what train we needed as you have to at many other stations. We could easily walk to Rockefeller, Times Square, or even Central Park if the group felt up to it. Another bonus is if you park in the other garage on 35th street (not the hotel valet, only $40 a day instead of $70) you can turn left and hit the Lincoln tunnel a few blocks away without having to circle the building (which can take a really long time during congested traffic).
Hotel valet garage was very expensive but we were given a tip that a half price garage was right around the block.
Loved the staff!! Loved the location - so easy to get around and so close to the train station.
The fact that we had booked two beds but only got one - although the bed was comfortable. The room was too small.
Location and Price were the best features. The room was small, but comfortable. I'd stay here again, for sure.
The bathroom sink had a slow drain and the room key wouldn't work in the fitness center.
Clear, neat, good security and nice staff.
Rooms equipped with minimum required. Poor lighting, no coffee maker, plastic glasses, no shower cap, no vanity mirror.
Excellent staff and very convenient location for my business needs that week.
The bathrooms were in need of maintenance. Although very clean, there were sloppy repairs that made the tub and shower very shabby, and I was not tempted to take a bath.
location was perfect
Not enough amenities in the room. No mini refrigerator. No coffee maker. The TV didn't work well.
Good location. Across from Penn Station, next to Subway entrance. Fun diner attached. Great history room.
Not getting our room cleaned the last night we were there. We stayed 11 nights.
I booked my stay at the Wyndham through a third party -- not KAYAK, but through another one (getaroom, I think). When I arrived at the hotel, Sunday evening, my reservation had not been sent to the hotel. This was the fault of the third party. However, while the staff tried hard to be accommodating, errors were made. I stood at the desk for 45 minutes while the desk agent tried repeatedly to get getaroom to fax him or email him a copy. I offered to do the same. This apparently was not enough. He disappeared for long periods into the back room while I stood. There was no reason he could not have offered me the option to go to a room, and to take an imprint of my credit card (not to charge it, as I had already paid the third party), and to resolve this on his own, as it was the hotel’s responsibility at this point, and I was weary. I had to finally request the manager, and point this out to him, though he was ready to do so. I was disappointed in this. Afterward, the service was lovely, and my room was upgraded, I was offered breakfast, and a late checkout. So overall the hotel was fine. Just the mixup was not handled well.
Location was great. Penn Station is a block away. Easy to walk to just about anything.
Room was muggy and A/C unit was loud. Small, though that's not surprising. Overall, room and hotel felt a little run down.
Not much to like besides location
I arrived early at 6am, check in was at 3pm which is stated and I have no issues. However I asked the lady who works the graveyard shift on Tues 8/4, she told me I could go to the restaurant that was connected to the hotel to rest and wash up. Later the bell boy said, "hey if you want a larger bathroom theres one downstairs..." If the bell boy was not nice enough to mention that I would have been a restaurant bathroom trying to change.
Nice view from hotel. Rooms were small but to be expected, still cozy. Excellent location, walked to most of my destinations. Very close to Penn Station which was nice since I flew into Newark.
Beds were very hard, difficult to sleep first few nights. There is a business charge even if you don't use the WiFi or business center. Shower was sort of frustrating as other reviews have stated. The temperature was pretty inconsistent. The pressure could blow you out of the bathroom, but this is better than having little water pressure. Bathroom was small. No refrigerator.
The location and the people that worked there were very nice
It needs major renovation
We had a nice view of the Empire State Building as well as comfortable beds and friendly staff. The location is great to walk about anywhere in town and jump on the subway easily.
The shower head and plumbing were frustratingly terrible. The pressure was so bad, I could hardly get water to reach anything other than my head. The temperature was wildly inconsistent no matter what time we showered and would sway from the extremes the whole time you showered. I understand it's old plumbing, but at $330 a night I expect a little better. Because of the problems, it would take me at least twice as long to shower, so if they're trying to cut pressure to be "green", it's not working.
Great location by Penn Station. Clean rooms and very hot water.
Convenient to Penn Station. Friendly staff.
Room was a larger upgrade, upgraded and spacious but bathroom was tiny and old fixtures.
Good location with friendly staff. Good value for the money, rooms were cosy and perfect for a younger couple in their 20's.
Old hotel, needs to be renovated. wallpaper was ripping, outside of the building looks run down. very small rooms, many with limited views.
Great location, good price through Kayak,
Small rooms, basic ammenities
Beds comfortable, nice maid, shower pressure good
Room was small, drafty, and poorly maintained. Tile had mold, paint chipping. No bathrobes typically of 4 star hotel. Four star price for "3 star hotel at best. Would never stay there again
Room was tiny couldn't even fit a cot it was drafty
No major problems with room
Room was quite small (it's an old hotel)
Great location. Nice staff. They did accomodate us when we complained about the size of the room
Rooms very, very small. Two double beds very close to each other and not one dresser drawer. Bathroom door opens in but not all the way because it hit a shelf. Looked at other rooms, nothing similar to their website. Entire property needs major remodel. Pealing paint, chipped tiles, Old poorly functioning bathroom fixtures. Very old bedding, tattered and wrinkled. Old, stained carpet. Dark, poor lighting. No restaurant or bar (both are bring renovated but we didn't know this until we arrived). This is absolutely NOT a 4 star hotel - barely a 3 star. I travel a lot and almost always use Hotwire and have never disagreed with their star rating. I will not use Kayak again for hotels.
Location was perfect for the business I had to do there.
The floor and room I stayed in had not been updated in a very long time. Hotel was old and not clean. The house clean did a terrible job every day.
Bed and rooms were extremely small for the price
location was great
hotel is very old. Being female I need a bathroom where I can put on makeup and do my hair. Very small bathroom with old time basin sink amd shower. no vanity will not stay there again nor recommend it to a friend
I stayed 7 nights. I would not recommend for an extended stay but okay for short visit. Location was central, near subways and attractions. Room was a good size for a queen bed, single adult. Reminds me of good public transportation. Serviceable and convenient are the main strengths, but not comfortable. You would not come in and say "ahhhh" at the end of a day in New York.
I didn't TRUST that the room was clean. The room was refreshed daily, It looked clean, smelled cleaned but...... The bed was not comfortable, it sagged on one side. The hotel is in need of serious refurbishment. I heard the plumbing from the other room when they took a shower, as well as the guy clearing his sinuses (yuck). The hot water was only warm.
Next to Penn Station.
Drab. Needs a major renovation. Should be a one star hotel. Bellstand charges $2 per bag just to hold a bag.
