                    Convenient to Times Square and restaurants. Fair price.

                    Staff not friendly. No heat for two days all we got was a promise to correct. On third day we were told the system in the room was broken and we would be moved to another room when available. You pack up we move you. We will store your luggage for free. Check back after 2 PM for room availability. Could go on and on. Find another hotel even if it cost more.

                    the location was perfect. Everything was in a short distance

                    the rooms are small, the bed is small and they clean the carpet the six days i stayed there. I tested them. They change the linen every day but they put a nylon between the linen and the layer that never changed... Very bad smell

                    For us as International travellers it was central to everything we needed. Felt very safe.

                    Just the noise from the fire department, our room was right over it. Would of liked to be able to access a computer. Our roaming was not working, & our family was a little worried with bomb scare. Would of been good to contact them through computer

                    Proximity to theatres, wide variety of restaurants, shops, etc.

                    Nothing major, but calling this room a "deluxe queen" room was false; it was a very small room with a double bed.

                    Location was certainly the best quality for a visitor to Manhattan's Time Square and the theatres.

                    Although acceptable we were disappointed in the general cleanliness and housekeeping. It was not the best we have experienced at Best Western Hotels.

                    The employees were great and helpful, the rooms were a good size, and the location was excellent.

                    Yes, the hotel had a strong bad smell in the lobby, in our room, and especially in the hall ways of our 6th floor.

                    The hotel location.

                    The room is tiny smal thatl one can barely move, and the complimentary wireless service was very poor. Although the vending machines available yet there wasn't water bottels.

                    Nothing.. Actually the bell boy, Larry was a decent guy.

                    We were not impressed with our stay at this hotel. for a number of reasons, to list just a few I would start with the staff friendliness and willing to help, which was non existent, the room was not clean and extremely small. with broken rails and ceased up windows. Which I do not think you should recieve when paying that amount for a room in one of the biggest hotels chains in the world. Upon Check out we heard a number of other people complaining about similar experiences. Avoid at all costs, search for little boutique hotels, I hear there the same price, and even cheaper... With the standard of service and comfort you expect

                    Good size rooms for New York and excellent location with polite staff & good facilities

                    Hair dryer & lift were ineffective, the location of the room made it dark & a little noisy by the lift and the breakfast was poor value for money.

                    The location was excellent.room was a good size for a manhatten hotel.front lobby was nice.

                    We kept losing cold water so all we had had was scalding hot water at times. found old pizza crust under the bed. hair in the shower. room was hot..airconditioning did not work great. very noisy since there is a firehall right behind building.but the location made up for everything.
