Location Staff were not very friendly. Man at desk checking me in was quite short with me, he kept asking me for a voucher, I kept telling him I didn't have one. He obviously wasn't listening to me. He never said hello, welcome, please or thank you. I realize it was check in time so it was busy, but don't work in this industry if you can't deal with people more appropriately. I actually found all the staff quite stand-offish, except the gentleman at the bag check. I had no cold water for my shower, and there was a tag from previous visitor on the floor in the bathroom. I left a bag in one of the rooms, when I called half hour later, I spent 20 minutes on phone, being put on hold. I finally just went to hotel and asked security to get it.
Location Very Old hotel and very expensive
The location was the best! The hotel is okey, but the prices are not...
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.
I love this hotel.
Nothing. Bed was super hard. Rooms are tiny.
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 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.
Clean. $31 surchase went to hotel for no extra value. Was a ripoff with only a small print notice in addition to large print advertised price. Buyer beware. Wouldn't recommend or go back.
Poorly disclosed 30$/day facility fee
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.
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.
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.
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
I gues for us-measures this Hotel has to be considered old The Service is excellent and it is Central
Clean rooms, Small rooms
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!
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.
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 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
Close enough to walk many places. Staff was extremely friendly. Horrible view from window.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Impeccable service Immaculate rooms Excellent location between Times Square and Bryant Park Can't complain about anything.
Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
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!
Location Outdated rooms, slowness to check and out, limit on towels no bath clothes, issue with elevator
Location Check in took an hour, staff unmotivated, Rooms dirty, carpet ripped, beds uncomfortable and dirty, shower leaks all over bathroom and water temperature fluctuates from scalding to cold, thermostat broken so room temp uncontrollable, had to open window.....remote broken TV had one channel....just a terrible experience. ...they should be ashamed of themselves.
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.
The only good thing about this hotel is its location
Location was very good Long waiting times at the front desk Poor service when requesting an additional blanket Fee for storing suitcases after check-out Expensive parking Expensive Outdated No kettle or coffee maker
The location is very good. The price is high as compare to the quality of rooms but I guess it's because of the location I guess the price is high but rooms and bathrooms needs to be repaired.
Location to Penn Station and Msg couldn't be beat Little noisy. Not there fault.
Location Bad hotel
Location Mold in bathroom. Uncomfortable bed. Thin towels. Mentioned to staff they said that's what you get when reservation are made on kayak.
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.
Only Location. Ugly and old room no air conditioner Bed to small for a a couple.
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.
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 rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
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!
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
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!
great bar view, we didn't have then best
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Outstanding hotel with excellent staff and tons of character. Rooms are super clean. Great location. Would love to stay here again!
Beautiful hotel in a great location.
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.
the whole 'vibe' of the place, the physical building and rooms, the extra measure of cheerful courtesy. not a thing
Staff was attentive. Good location and hotel itself has a nice, trendy bar. N/A
Service and Staff. No

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, 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
Location No desk and chair furniture suitable for using laptop. Went to nearby coffee shop.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I couldn't beat this location for the price! Great places to eat within walking distance. I wish there were a refrigerator and microwave in the room. At least a fridge.
Reasonably modern and upscale hotel in an ethnic, melting pot area of NYC with a very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Only small issues like a wall outlet that didn't work, a room refrigerator that only served as a bar and a very un-secure and difficult to use wi-fi system - nothing major.
The location was great, roughly 10 blocks from time square. There was no microwave or refrigerator stationed within the room. Also, the gym should did not have a 5-gallon water reserve for guests.
Large room was clean and recent renovation Couple blocks from 34th st subway Tiny bath but was clean and modern
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.
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.
The staff, location, and quality of the hotel for the price cannot be beat in New York. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and I travel to New York often, usually staying in hotels like the W. Nothing.
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.
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.
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!!!!!!!
Great service. Very clean. Rooms weren't spacious but very clean and modern. Extremely comfortable bed and bedding
Location Rooms were very very small, bathrooms were even smaller, no room to move in and no storage space whatsoever in room at all
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.
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.
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 found it mostly cool. Especially the places at the lobby, which became a very hot meeting place, during lunch time and late hours . The oyster bar, the Stumptown caffe -very good quality- and the Breslin bistrot were mostly satisfactory. The prices were very high. I mean the minibar products, the telephone calls pricelist and the deposit of usd30 for a simple plug...! The most important : there has been a double debit entry on my credit card account for which I am going to send an email to the hotel . pls check.
The staff is great! The location is good. The theme it incredible The rooms are too close, doesn't has any closet it is a little bit uncomfortable for the money that I be already paid.
Location. The restaurant and bar in the lobby was excellent. Has a great bar too!
The artsy feel and the consistent liveliness!
Great location, friendly staff, comfortable beds...overall a great hotel My room was 1 hour and 45mins late, I was offer 1 free cup of coffee. The lobby was full and could not find a place to sit. So I left and went another restaurant and stayed there till the room was ready. I should have been offered something else. I know sometimes things can happen but nothing was offer at all except for a free coffee, and I waited almost 2 hours.
Beds were some of the most comfortable of any hotel I've ever stayed in. Ate in both the Breslin and the John Dory Oyster Bar and both were excellent with the Full English breakfast at The Breslin being the highlight. Every interaction with staff was genuine and pleasant. The shower in our large double room seemed to be an afterthought, small and comically cramped. Whatever you're imagining is too big, I'm serious when I say barely enough room to turn around.
So much character it hurts. Very cool especially the lobby facilities. The day I was there ... No hot water.
I was extremely pleased with my stay at the Ace Hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was well-designed, comfortable, cool, and clean. The lobby was always full of people. The attached shops and restaurants were all excellent and the location was perfectly in the middle of everything. I would definitely recommend the hotel and certainly stay there again.
a very fun atmosphere there was no lotion or bar soap in the bathroom. and the street noise was very loud.
We loved the Hotel design and the staff were very helpful. Our room for 3 people was a great size and at no time did we feel cramped. The room was extremely clean and the bathroom was a good size. And as for the view of the Empire State Building from our bedroom...just amazing. We had an unfortunate episode of the only night we decided to come back early and have a drink in our room the people staying in the adjoining room were smoking and this was smelt in our room and lingered for some time. We did call reception and having sent a maintenance man to deal with the problem initially, then sent the hotel security who although said the smoke could be smelt from the corridor and their room was unable to do much about it because there was no evidence of cigarettes in the room when he was eventually allowed in. We had a friend with us who smoked and she did the decent thing and went outside to smoke, shame they didnt do the same, and why didnt the smoke alarm go off in their room?????
The hotel itself was great and the rate was great for last minute none
All in all was great. Definitely a younger vibe and nice attention to detail throughout the hotel. Lobby has become a little overcrowded with millenials. Be nice if there were space for guests to have coffee/drink.
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,
Clean, elegant rooms, comfortable bed, great shower. Hallway noise came through the door easily.
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.
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.
The staff at the front desk was very friendly.
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.
friendly staff simple old NYC charm, architecture large, well appointed rooms for an older hotel easy access to meetings
Friendly, helpful staff. Bad view out of room 733.
Old shower and bathroom
The location is great. The bathrooms are nice. Internet worked well. However it lacks the charm I was expecting from a boutique hotel in New York. The rooms have an old feeling. The decoration in general is fairly old style. And when we tried to get room service for breakfast nobody picked up, we were told we will be called back and after 30 min we just gave up. Not worth the price, I would rather do a Hilton or Hyatt for same price with much better bed, service and vibe.
Staff was amazingly attentive. No ice on floor
Convenient and close proximity to our corporate office.
Excellent facilities, clean rooms, great location, right in the heart of Manhattan.
minibar was loaded with choices deceptive staff. gave me a different room with a smaller bed than the one I paid for. but after waiting on lobby for an hour after my check in time because the manager hadn't inspected the room, I was too tired and Aggravated to argue!
The staff was amazing. Polite and personable, always willing to help and proactive in resolving any booking issues. Would definitely stay again. Also, there is an amazing shop right on the next corner that has an incredible selection of foods, from ice cream and pizza to a full salad bar, that stays open for your late night cravings. Conveniently close to the hotel. If I must search for something negative to say..... Maybe the room seemed a little cramped? Didn't affect us because we were out and about but had we stayed in I suppose we'd have to use the descriptor "cozy."
I love this hotel. I love the staff and I love the rooms. This feels like a hotel in a small town. I always reserve here even if the price is more expensive. Keep up the good work chandler. Better gym room.
It's a nice modern boutique feeling hotel. Staff was nice. After a night of jack hammering (location issue more than their fault) there was no hot water at all in the morning. They refunded a portion of my bill but it was brutal. They should consider also soundproofing the Windows more.
we were checked in really quick . breakfast was enjoyable . staff at reception were realy helpful in directions and questions . dinner was very good in the evening and brendan bar was very enjoyable bar to drink in. but location location location ,would not be beaten heating system was noisy and lifts slow during busy times.but not bad enough to put us off staying here in the future
Location Rooms on 12th floor could be updated
the bed was very comfortable and bug free..! could of done with tea/coffee facilities in room though, staff were brilliant.
the location was great
Room was acceptable Breakfast was a bit ad hoc and lacked taste in order and presentaion
The front desk staff was excellent. The linens were very nice. Blow dryer didn't work. Called housekeeping for clean towels and replacement blow dryer. Waited an hour. Never showed up. Later they cleaned room and left clean towels but no washcloths. It has potential just have not worked out all the kinks yet.
The most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Room was cold in November, as heat had not been turned on.
Very nice staff 206 should be a storage closet! Nestled between two fire doors, starting at 4am, the two fire doors slam prohibiting any sleep!!
Perfect location, just a few steps from major stores and 15 min walk to Times Square. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Just two elevators. For some rooms you could not control the heating, just the cooling air.
They people were great Lack of coffee maker / limited to one coffee per day..
