Location was excellent
Good price and location AC unit was extremely loud, impossible to sleep well with it on, and it was humid hot summer in NYC. Major bummer. No towels in pool area had to call 3 times, there is barely any staff around ever. People seem to be here to crash for parties or work, not really a vacation hotel.
The outside seating area attached to our room and the internal attrium. Staff were very helpful. We booked a suite. Very small room with only a bar mounted above the credenza to hang clothes. I had to make a conference call the next down so went to a common seating area downstairs It was dirty with several chairs stained with spilled drinks. Very loud club which didn't close until 4:00am. Good for young folks less so if you are a little older.
Nothing The hotel was too expensive The room was very small It was dirty
Liked that 4 of us could have a room where we each had our own bed and tv and be fairly close to great destinations. The place is right beside a night club and the room we were given initially was right beside the club. You could feel and hear the music in the room all night. There was also an "emergency exit" door right outside our room that was used by service personnel. The door banged constantly with people coming and going. Seriously the bang was so loud it made us jump every single time - this was every 15 minutes or so the entire night. None of us slept (myself, my 63 year old mom and my 18 year old daughter). One of the Tv's didn't work at all and another had a bad picture - we asked for it to be looked at - never happened. No way to lock the door from the inside and no "do not disturb" sign. We complained about the room but of course they couldn't do anything other than move us for the 2nd night and offer free breakfast (which was actually brunch starting at 10 am which needs its own whole other review). Room was dirty - carpet, sheets...Then the second night we did have a quieter room. While we were getting ready for our show there was a knock on the door followed by a male employee walking right in - no waiting for us to let him in - just walked right in to fill soap in the shower??? What if we had been naked? So bad it was laughable. At least we all have a funny story to tell. A tv and 2 lights didn't work in this room either. Awful awful place. People were nice but didn't follow through on the service at all.
Impossible to sleep depending where your located in the hotel. If your on the same side as the club good luck getting any sleep at all. I could here the music and the DJ better than I could hear our room TV. Had to keep AC and TV on in attempt to drown out the music.
The mini bar The maids
A staff member member became rude with us in the hotub area. We were compted $50 in room service because of it. Other than that, the place was great!
Location Noisy in room heater.
Proximity to various NYC highlights is very nice. I understand parking in NYC is difficult, but a better alternative could be achieved.
I usually stay on the lower Eastside when I travel to New York for the restaurants and art galleries. I selected the out purely on the basis of economics and the desire to do something slightly different. Although there are no art galleries and only a handful of restaurants in this neighborhood it is walking distance to time square and the theater district. If shows are your game, this place is pretty awesome. However for 160 bucks a night with good sheets and a recently renovated modern bathroom I do not feel inconvenienced at all. You can easily take the blue line subway down to Chelsea or Greenwich Village and as long as the weather wasn't as terrible as it was during snowstorm Jonas during my stay you can easily walk east across to the Bowery once you have moved south a bit by train. There's a charming coffee and breakfast place right next-door to the hotel which was friendly and provided healthy food options. The staff at the hotel although not the most polished was extremely helpful during the storm. They were able to extend my stay since I was stranded with all flights canceled for 2 days without gouging me. I had a problem with my television remote which they expeditiously repaired and I appreciated the attentiveness and speed. The hotel restaurant was, meh, just fair, certainly not awesome as compared to most restaurants in New York, but they get points for being the only place open on the night of the storm. And again at bargain-basement prices for the room one as little right to complain.
Can't beat the location Spa and hot tub need to be heated up in the morning
We brought our dog with us, and they were very welcoming and accommodating...he got treats, a new leash, and they even offered a dog bed! And, they didn't give us a hassle when we wanted to leave the dog in the room while we went to dinner. I think the dog had as great a time as we did! The location wasn't the greatest if you are looking for "things to do" right there in the neighborhood, but for our needs, it was perfectly fine!
The cleanliness of the room and the bathroom and the location (near to time square) which we can find several metro lines. The noise resulting from the street (trucks, klaxons all night long). It was almost impossible to sleep even with earplugs.
There were comfortable beds, nice tv's in the room as well as a brilliant shower. The hotel is next to a junction so you get awoken very early every morning but i was put on the second floor next to it.
Great welcome. Staff always willing to help. Rooms very comfortable. Great view. Fantastic design, furnitures, deco. Room cleaning was average.
Nice view from the bar, nice room.
The View at the bar on the 16th floor! The view from our room, the food, service, location
Amazing room with a view of the Hudson River. Excellent service from staff. The evening wine reception is a nice touch.
Good location, 10 minute walk to Times Sq. No coffee/tea making facilities in room. Drinks expensive.
Very nice soap and shampoo Toilet paper poor, coffee stand in the morning moved away very early. At 9:30 it was already moved away. from the five opportunities we could only use 2.
Clean and uncluttered Good service I came in early and couldn't check in til 1:30 pm.
Walking distance to times square and the subway, some bars and restaurants nearby (hells kitchen area). And talk about bang for your buck, they validate parking, free wifi, some small stuff for breakfast. This place was a perfect hotel to crash at while exploring the city, I would stay again for SURE! The rooms were small, but typical for ny. The vending / ice was pretty sparse, but I've noticed that's getting typical for lower cost hotels. Must be how they're saving money. It's a little bit of a walk to the subway, not a big deal for me, but if it's really cold or you just don't feel like walking, it's a little inconvenient.
I liked that it was in walking distance to time square. I wish that when the staff tels you that they will get you side by side rooms that when you go back they don't tell you that they are not suppose to move any rooms around. Then take thirty min. and 3 people later to get it done.
Location, price, cleanliness. Pool always closed, workout machines broke
Great hotel for the price. Great location, short walk to times square, two blocks from port authority were they have buses to all airports
Good loation, clean room
location and price room smelled like cigarette smoke
location staff of hotel
Great spacious room Amazing staff Cheap parking prices
the location was great, 10 minutes to Times Square and easy walking to subway.and places to eat. Great swimming pool, which was needed because of the heat June/July
The fact that it is convienently located and has garage parking WiFi should be free. They should allow for pre-pays...This was a gift put on someone elses charge card and I had to pay for it myself.
Great location! Plug wouldn't be work in bathroom. Tub wouldn't drain while showering.
No bedbugs. Very mediocre place.
excellent location large TV Beds not comfortable. One light didn't work No safe. no hairdryer not a great value for price.
The location was great. The staff was very friendly and the price can't be beat. The wifi was not free.
Clean Rooms No Coffee in the AM in the Lobby.
I originally asked for a room with a king bed as it was just myself and the upgrade was pretty expensive considering the room would have stayed unoccupied. Room also significantly smelled of new paint which was not remedied.
The hotel is in a great location and is small with only 5 floors but very nice and clean. I would recommend staying here and would totally come again.
Short walk to Times Square and Rockefeller Center. Left car in garage for ONLY $10/day. Staff was very friendly . No coffee I room but made me venture out early in AM, so not a deal breaker.
10 min. walk to Times Square Great surrounding restaurants Affordable parking
Our stay was during one of the busier weekends, when the Pope, Beyonce, and everyone but their mother decided to go to NYC. Needless to say, there were few options that fit our budget and our requirements. We booked the hotel because of location, price and overall comments from other reviewers. First off, we loved the location! Situated right in the center of Hell's Kitchen, the nearby restaurants were incredible and it was easy access to go anywhere in NYC. We also liked the room itself. It was a decent size, with two twin beds that were more like full-sized than college comfort, it was clean, and it was quiet. I didn't like filling out a form online for early check-in, just to arrive and find out we need to wander the streets for an hour because they didn't have a room for us until 1 pm. I also didn't like the option of choosing a room with a view only to have our window facing a wall. Finally, for a name like Skyline hotel, it gives off a false hope that it's taller than five floors. Motel, maybe. And certainly not valued at $300 a night. But for our one-night stay outside of the room, it had a clean bed, a big room, and the added comfort of a great location.
We were in NYC to see some friends and go to a concert at Terminal 5, and we picked Skyline based on its proximity to the venue and the fact that it had $10 parking! It was a 10 minute walk to the venue, and about a 10 minute walk to the park or Time Square. The rooms were exactly what you would expect for a reasonably priced hotel in New York City, they were slightly smaller and a little old, but perfectly clean.

Everything about our time here was excellent and we stayed here for 2 weeks. Would definitely come back again and would really recommend this hotel. There wasn't anything we didn't like
The pool hours are weird.
Pool was nice, cool setting on the top floor. Close to major attractions, not a bad price for Manhattan. No coffee maker in the room, cold showers both days, rude pool staff.
Bed was ok. It was clean . Location was not bad. Bathroom very small . Once the housekeeping open the without noticing. I notice the hotel had a restaurant 2 days after. No breakfast included.
Location is great, just 2 blocks from metro station, bed and furniture was ok, staff polite Restaurant charged me about $25 for a normal breakfast, food somewhere else
loud. unfriendly staff. i got put in a room in the basement next to a huge ice machine. every hour all night it made big noise that woke me up. i asked to change rooms and they laughed at me.
The room was small, but very nicely arranged. There was a bathtub that I used for relaxation. The view from our room was nice and bright. There were fruits at the breakfast. Breakfast space was limited for all the guests and that makes people like me who prefers to take his time eating breakfast hurry, because watching others standing doesn't feel right. It was not also so much vegan-friendly. There was oatmeal (as a source of protein) but I would like to suggest the hotel managers to add soy/almond milk, peanut butter as well so that vegans can use the cereals too. Vegan sausages (with request from guests) could also be a very good option.
I liked that the room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. They offered free breakfast although I was not able to take advantage of that but I was excited that they had that to offer. The hotel as a whole was very clean and you could tell that there was good upkeep of the utilities in the building. For the most part, the staff was very helpful when I had questions and it was easy to get to a place of transportation from my building because there was a main street just to the left. I wish my room had a better view of the city because it was in the back of a building so my view is of a parking lot but that is just a preference for me. I also did not like the the house cleaning it had to be done at a specific time because I was not prepared when the woman came but she let me know that if she did not come now she cannot come again. I also had a late flight so the early check out fee was a little much to me but I understand that as well.
Everything Necessary for a Business Stay is There. Lobby Small but Functional People Were very Friendly and Helpful Hotel was Clean and Convenient Rooms Are Very Small, but Hey! This is NYC in the 21st Century! Long Walk to Nice Restaurants
I choose to optimize my room for quiet: I received what must have been the quietest room in the building. Staff was helpful and friendly. WiFi worked well and was simple to engage. Breakfast area was crowded.
