Location, rooms are comfy , free internet My mother's shoes were stolen, Along with my nephew's (2 and 1/2 yo) pillow and toys. The shoes were inside a suitcase the entire time which makes the case even worse. We complained at the front desk, but the staff were unapologetic and did nothing to solve the issue.
Items of our luggage were stolen
Friendly and accommodating staff! Loved that everyone was there willing to help. Also liked the security of staff checking to make sure that all guests coming into the hotel were in fact supposed to be there. Didn't like that there wasn't a fridge and/or microwave in the room given the price. Room was very nice but for the price I would've expected at least a fridge.
Nice interior All staff Ive come across felt like security. They dont respond to greetings. When they selectively ask to see your room keycard to enter the hotel and you see the people in front of you stroll right in while you get "carded" almost everytime...Im a well groomed mid 20's asian business man on vacation what more do you want? And in the heart of korea-town no less! I avoided the staff for the rest of my stay due to their less than friendly disposition and most times they seemed too busy to talk to you because they are allll on their phones textingg! Mainly speaking of night staff. For such a historic Landmark of a Hotel the staff certainly takes away from its authenticity,beauty and glamour. As far as the rooms go everthing seemed fairly clean and nice. Only issue was the brown water I had to shower in and the air condition wasnt working the first day but their engineering staff promptly fixed the A/C unit.
We appreciated the entire stay. It was quiet, friendly staff, clean, accomodating, close to subway. Good food . We had to leave. We have recommended it to others and will be back.
Close enough to walk many places. Staff was extremely friendly. Horrible view from window.
Nothing I liked. Worst costumer service!! Front desk guests service were so rude. My room was already paid and booked for but still had to wait two hours just to get my room!
Nice hotel Check in process was BAD Booked via Kayak and they did not have my reservation I had a confirmation # Took almost an hour to resolve
Clean rooms, Small rooms
The room was spacious for NYC standards and very clean and well kept. The furnishings were modern and kept up to date. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our stay. It would have been nice to have a refrigerator in the room to keep our water, wine and cheese cold.
I gues for us-measures this Hotel has to be considered old The Service is excellent and it is Central
Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
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
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!
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!
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.
Impeccable service Immaculate rooms Excellent location between Times Square and Bryant Park Can't complain about anything.
The location was good. The hotel and the room was old fashion. The pictures of the rooms that you show in your website doesn´t match the real ones. Also I had to pay an extra $100 for facilities fee.
Location Very Old hotel and very expensive
Location is great. Price wasn't bad. Even though I booked and prepaid for our stay, they charged us 23 per night for "facility fee". When I asked what was for, they said "it's a required fee for wifi". I tried to say we didn't need wifi, but the gentleman said "sorry, it's a required fee". There is also some construction going on, which woke us up at 730am. When look outside, there was a cord. They didn't alert us about construction, and neither told us to make sure our curtains were closed. Rooms are also a bit outdated and small.
You cant beat the location, across the street from Madison Square, walk to Macys, and just a few minutes to Time Square. If you get a remodeled room the place is okay. Clean, but small, lots of road noise and no privacy due to thin walls. You can hear everything your neighbors are doing. THE SERVICE IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! RECEPTIONIST SAID THE ROOM WOULD BE READY IN AN HOUR AND SHE WOULD CALL TO LET US KNOW. 4 HOURS LATER STILL NO CALL. WE RETURNED AT 430 AND THE ROOM WAS STILL NOT READY. NEEDLES TO SAY SHE NEVER CALLED. This place has college students living in half of the rooms, so theres constant noise. If you have small children, or are looking for a private place for couples this is not the place. If you just need somewhere to crash and hangout in the city it works. The location is great, the rooms are clean, and its affordable. IF YOU BOOK THROUGH GET A ROOM / KAYAK PLAN ON YOUR RESERVATION NOT BEING IN THE SYSTEM WHEN YOU ARRIVE. THERE WERE SEVERAL PEOPLE WITH THIS PROBLEM.
Loved the location. Liked the room cleanliness. Very small room for three people. Good thing we only stayed for one night!
Poorly disclosed 30$/day facility fee
Came down from Boston and wanted to stay near Penn Station to make traveling home easier. The location was good since it's a quick five minute walk to the train. My biggest complaint is that the hotel charged me an extra $25 fee for the business lounge, phones and wifi, which they didn't disclose to me at all. In fact, when I checked in, they touted their guest wifi as a feature of the hotel. You can imagine my surprise then when I woke up with a paper invoice slipped underneath my door in the middle of the night demanding I pay $25 for a "facilities fee." Seems like they are nickel-and-diming their customers to squeeze out every last dollar of an already expensive hotel. Beyond the hiddens fees, I stayed in a Double Metro room with a colleague. The room was a bit cramped without much room to move around. There were only two accessible outlets in the entire room, so charging phones and laptops between meetings was impossible for both of us at once. The others outlets either used European plugs or were inaccessible behind the headboards of the beds. In the middle of the night, the room became inexplicable hot and since you can't open the windows, there was really no way to cool it down. The shower fluctuated back and forth between frigid and scalding hot every 5 seconds. All in all, the facilities were so so and I was thankful my tripped was only schedule for one night.
The location was awesome It was so small and incredibly expensive for what you get. There were families being evicted in adjacent rooms. Don't know the story there, but not your typical "4 star" experience.
Bathroom walls poorly painted, TV very small, no fridge (refrigerator). In itself very expensive for poor quality.
2 bathrooms for one room made it extra convienent. Clean rooms. Ask for a room with a view. You can't go wrong. Didn't have any issues with anything.
The location was the best! The hotel is okey, but the prices are not...
Nothing. Bed was super hard. Rooms are tiny.
Location Outdated rooms, slowness to check and out, limit on towels no bath clothes, issue with elevator
Location Bad hotel
Nothing. I would recommend kayak remove this hotel from their booking options. It was rated 4.5 out of 5 stars and was the worst hotel I have ever seen. I travel all the time and use you guys to book flights etc. This was my first experience booking a hotel and I will never utilize the service again. I am having to battle with you guys to get money back for a place that was so low quality we didn't feel safe sleeping there. We encountered serious issues upon arrival. We looked at two different rooms and decided due to the condition of the hotel and the utter disarray of the rooms that we could not stay there. We are working back trying to get our money back as we had to make other sleeping arrangements.
Bell Hop took bags to room. I gave a $10 dollar tip for 10 minutes of his time. He looked at me and asked.."Really only $10 that is all my time is worth to you"? It was my first time in New York so I took back the $10 and gave him $20. I was later told by other staff the Ball Hop was in the wrong and that I should have taken his name and reported him. Rooms were ok at best. Not super clean.
Staff was very unconcerned with complaints Had to have clothing sent to laundry to be decontaminated due to bedbugs-they lost some of my items. While they did comp our room due to bedbugs, the manager has yet to respond to my complaint of lost items and additional expenses. I was promised that my clothing would be returned within a the day-took 2 days. i had to buy a winter coat (as mine was sent out for decontamination). still waiting to be reimbursed.
Absolutely nothing. It was, by far, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Rooms are from the 80's. Dirty and smell like cigarettes. Staff is unfriendly unwilling to answer the most simple of questions. The valet service is a joke. It took us 1.5 hours to get our vehicle back when we checked out.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location
The only thing I can save from my stay was the location, it's not far from places of sightseeing and they have a metro station right in front of the hotel but that's the only thing I can think of. The hotel is just awful, the staff is just unfriendly and very rude, I had a problem with one of the employees and they could even apologize even do they almost ruin my hole stay there. The room is just sad, is very very small, so dirty and the bed will make you cry, we had to sleep over the bed because the sheets and everything was just disgusting. Really don't stay here is not worth it and you are going to regret booking here, I did...
The location was convenient and it was easy to get to all different places around the city. The rooms could use a bit of updating but we were not in that much. Just to sleep.
Leaving If only this site would allow me to add pictures... The room was the most disgusting four walls I have ever laid eyes on. It stunk of sewage and there was something dried that was dripping down the walls, TV (from 1982) and the window. It was absolutely horrendous. The manager was rude and dismissive when I informed him of the situation. The maids attempted to enter our room twice within 10 minutes at 9 AM without any attempt to warn us. This hotel made a terrible terrible end to an otherwise great trip. Shame on them for their complete lack of anything resembling customer service or a freaking sponge or can of paint. Disgusted
Location Mold in bathroom. Uncomfortable bed. Thin towels. Mentioned to staff they said that's what you get when reservation are made on kayak.
The doors locked Took over an hour to check in, and out?!?!? The rooms were gross.
Everything was perfect
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 staff was very helpful and very friendly!
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.
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I absolutely loved the Nomad Hotel. The staff, every single one of them were extremely helpful, pleasant and fun. I can't say enough about the service. The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. The library bar was very cool. I could hear water noise from the neighboring room's bathroom. That was a little disturbing in the early morning and late night.
Beautiful hotel in a great location.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
All the staff were amazing. Unique ambiance and furnishings exude class and style. Library Bar is beautiful, always had a spot for me; wonderful service, drinks. Great location, easy to get anywhere. Very memorable!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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,
Free continental breakfast in NYC !!!! nuff said
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
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.
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.
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!
Clean, comfortable rooms. Easy access to elevators to rooms. Staff was very courteous & accommodating. No problems.
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.
Good value for being in the middle of Manhattan.
Flexible with checkout, very helpful staff. For the price, breakfast and internet should be included.
the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was very very clean and comfortable . the view was great as well. there wasn't one thing id complain about.
Rooms were large compared to many other hotels in New York.
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.
Location Staff was unable to inform us (when we checked-in) of movie being filmed on the hotel's street, and surrounding street. Numerous street closures. Was not informed by staff ahead of a additional $20 a night fee from the hotel.
Stunning hotel. Stayed here for 4th of July weekend. Location is amazing, room is amazing and staff was amazing. Will be back next time while I'm in NYC. Parking is a hassle and valet is 55$ a night.
Great service. Very clean. Rooms weren't spacious but very clean and modern. Extremely comfortable bed and bedding
The staff was excellent; courteous, helpful, engaging and friendly. The room was spotless and comfortable with nice amenities. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely return.
Nice staff, comfortable mattress and linens, great shower, funky style and great location - walk to everything and close to subway Ultra small bathroom sink and counter, A/C didn't cool the room below 72 even with the thermostat turned down to 60. Bed also on a platform, and corner of the base jutted out far enough that I whacked my shins on it to the point of heavy bruises - totally my fault but just beware!!
I liked the modern design and the crisp clean linens. Unable to control temperature of room. Also found a large roach crawling on the floor. The staff rectified the situation immediately.
Large room was clean and recent renovation Couple blocks from 34th st subway Tiny bath but was clean and modern
Just entrance Very small space of room, very expensive if you think about cost vs. benefits. Even breakfast of us$ 24,50 and us$ 6,53 for a bottle of water???? The most expensive experience that I had when I am trevelling all around the world during last 20 years!!!!!!!
Most everything. My only facilities detraction was the shower water temperature bounced around. The location is not in the middle of anything, but it is close to a lot.
Nestled into a quieter part of Manhattan (or at least not as hopping as Times Square) the Roger feels like a bit of an oasis. The hotel did a great job of converting its rooms so they don't feel like an old apartment with a fresh coat of paint and an over-sized photo of old Chelsea. The lobby is pleasant, there is a small, intimate cafe on the landing and the rooms are well-appointed and comfortable. This was my first time and would stay again.
Very comfortable, great location, friendly and helpful staff. Those iHome alarm clocks are pretty unreliable. Nothing against The Roger, but I do like to play music in my room and they rarely seem to work.
I loved the terrace facility , made a big difference to me comfort. I will use this property again when visiting New York. First room I was allocated was way to small , requested a change and reception was very accommodating.
Clean rooms and very friendly staff!! N/A
Close to Times Square Hotel room was quite and comfortable Good competitive pricing When you check bags into the bell hop they keep them outside in the lobby. Nothing disappeared but it made me a little uneasy.
The rooms were great, and the staff was amazing! Excellent location... Thank you! Nothing!
I loved how they all treated me and my almost 2 yrs old daughter. They loved her Gia! Everybody paid attention to her, played w her, made us feel like at home! We ll be returning again for sure! There was nothing not to like! Hotel is excellent and I suggest to everybody!
Location is great and NYC atmosphere is why you head to this area. Hotel is going through renovations and rooms were not clean. Bathroom had mold and tub was missing shower parts. Not what we expected.
Great location for the whole city. Getting to and from was very easy and made our stay in the city that much better. The hotel is very decorative on the exterior and lobby but the rooms leave a lot to be desired. Very plain room but if your there to see the city it is just fine.
Location Hotel is not 5 star
The room size was good for NYC. The staff was friendly. The location is good if one wants to be close to the theater district. We couldn't turn the heat off. We tried turning the temperature as low as it could go and it was still blowing warm air.
The location was perfect for going to time square and all the local tourist attractions within walking distance to everywhere..check in was very easy and they were very professional. There is nothing that I didn't like
- Excellent Location - Around the corner from the times square / Walgreens tower, H&M etc. etc. - Clean sheets and towels. - Really good Bloody Mary's. - Most of the staff were polite and friendly. I'm not the type to give bad reviews.. BUT - I found boxer briefs from previous guests in the drawer of the night table, on top of the bible. Disgusting. It really made me question the importance of sanitation and thoroughness of the cleaning crew. - Not a good sleep. The beds were hard and the pillows were thin and flat. - The fridge and mini bar were missing from my room. - There were unknown charges to my account. And I tried to contact the hotel to question these charges, I was redirected many times. And I was always sent to a voice mail. Eventually, they told me they would investigate and that they would call me back. They didn't. When I called back the account billing personnel (Deborah, I think) was extremely rude and sarcastic, she redirected my call before I was even done speaking.
Walking distance to subway, Times Square, 5th Avenue, and various popular eateries We asked for a fridge but never got one. ; ( however, it's ok bc we weren't in the room much anyways
Everything was very good. At the "check in" counter, the man in charge was very helpful, enabling me to get a room without having to wait. I appreciated his efforts very much.
A great hotel with it all, charm, location, hip vibe, great restaurant, attentive staff, and nice extras (comp coffee, helpful concierge, great lounge with food & bev options at good prices). Loved it! A larger, more expansive fitness room would be nice.
The hotel was clearly recently redecorated to be hip and modern. I did not realize my single room would consist of a twin bed in a 6 by 10 room. It was half the room pictured. There was no closet, just some small drawers tucked behind the bed. They do an admiralable job with space efficiency but you should know going in how small the space is.
The staff went out of their way to assist with all our needs and although we were not happy with our room they went out of their way to sort us out . The first room we were assigned to , room 945 had a bad odour which was intolerable. We were then changed to room 444 which is slightly smaller but has good odour , unfortunately the aircon was super noisy and disturbed us on the first night . we then worked out a way to improve this noise so much better. The shower head in room 444 needs attention as it leaks at the back of the pipe - this is evidence of poor maintenance.
The best hotel I have stayed in in all my trips to NYC. They accommodated my requests. I slept like a baby---& that NEVER happens! I would like to see a lower rate.
location was good for the purpose of my trip. the lobby/restaurant was hip and bustling. the staff: apathetic, dismissive, rude, unapologetic rooms: way too small and awkward, no shades on bathroom windows, no amenities, no closet space overall experience: borderline abusive special note- extremely awkward situation happening on 8th floor where apparently a permanent tenant lives in one of the rooms and has several crazy notices taped to the outside of his/her door. also the fitness center is a joke.
Location, restaurant.....and unfortunately that's all Dilapidated room and bathroom, AC is so loud when turns on that wakes you up
The room with one twin bed. It was the perfect, cozy size for one person, and much more affordable than other types of rooms at this hotel.
I visited for a conference. That means I spent a minimum amount of time at the hotel and didn't take advantage of any of the on-site facilities -- straight out every morning, straight to my room every night. That being said, the experience was highly positive. The room was bright, clean, comfortable and well appointed. I liked the hotel's decor. And of course, the location was ideal. The staff were friendly and helpful. I should note that the room was a bit small, and as others have said it didn't have a chair. I was able to get my work done using the provided stool, but an office chair might have been better. I also found that parts of the hotel, especially the elevators, were too heavily perfumed for my taste. The room wasn't, which is good.
Friendlyat staff and great location. Quiet amd clean rooms. The beds were not firm enough
Great location (not far from Penn Station / Empire State Building) new, clean bathroom room was very small noisy AC
Nice hotel, great rooms, bar and got an excellent rate
Staff was very polite and courteous. The housekeeper who cleaned my room was very thorough and kind. Room was clean and the bed was very comfortable! I didn't like the street noise at night. Honking of horns continuously but nothing the hotel can do about that in NYC I guess
