The building in which the hotel is home to The New Yorker, dates from 1931. Worthwhile, therefore, is also a look at the history of the house. The rooms (we stayed on the 24th floor) have been recently renovated, all of the charming Art Deco-design the early days, but a modern interpretation. The room (1 queen size bed) was as usual in all hotels in the city is very small, but it was enough, because you spent the whole day on the road anyway. Therefore advisable to book a room with two beds, because you win a few square meters of space. Clean rooms, on request, the sheets are changed daily. Towels automatically every day. We were lucky and got a room with a view of the Empire State Building (morning and night a great sight, ask for a "view room", a bit more expensive). Rooms have modern air conditioning, unfortunately - and therefore small point deduction - the bathroom had no heating. This could be very unpleasant in cold days. The bathroom was not as tip-top facilities in the (very tired) as the bedroom. The hotel has nearly 1,000 rooms, so it is a constant coming and going. Did not bother.
The location has many advantages: subway stations right outside the house building (with the lines that lead to the main attractions), a few minutes walk to Times Square with all musical theaters, at Macy's and the Empire State . In the neighborhood of many fast food places. The area is safe (8th Avenue at 34th Street), you can walk around in the evening without any problems. Also important: the Airport Express bus stops on the street corner in front of the hotel. Pleasant: the elevators in the hotel lobby is only allowed through, who can show a card room. We had breakfast in the hotel belonging to Tick Tock Diner (a la carte), comfortable, very good and affordable. On departure you can leave the luggage store. The hotel provides shuttle to the airport, the Newark Airport, it costs $ 30 a person. Check out time is 12 noon clock, if you ask, you can keep no extra charge up to 14 clock the room.
We were only three days in the city that never really asleep, and had the good location a big time advantage.
