More about Best Western Hospitality House

Whats The Best Kept Secret In Manhatten?

by A TripAdvisor Member

The BEST WESTERN ' HOSPITALITY HOUSE' was really a fantastic find. We only booked it having read the positive reviews posted on 'TRIPADVISOR'.
When we reached the landing on the fifth floor I had to enter the room first as the rest of the party feared the worst. WHAT AN APARTMENT! We had a very large sittingroom/diningroom, two large bedrooms, a bathroom and a small but well equipped kitchen. There was a television in each bedroom and one in the sittingroom. Each morning towels, cereal, fruit, tea, coffee and milk were supplied (did'nt like the muffins ) All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. A special thank you to the manager and all of the desk staff. Our stay was for ten days, and we had no complaints regarding any aspect of our stay in the Hospitality House.
Hospitality House is in the heart of Manhattan but we recommend that visitors should buy the ' metro card' for unlimited bus and subway travel, its great value and it saves the feet.
Would we stay in Hospitality House, New York, again ? EVERY TIME.

Best Kept Secret in NYC!

by A TripAdvisor Member

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in November. This was his first time to NYC and we loved the Best Western Hospitality House. It is DELUXE inside. There is a full kitchen, full living room and seperate bedroom. Everything was fantastic. The location is excellent. (Just one block from the Waldorf Astoria where the double decker gray line bus picks up for the tours.) 2 blocks from the subway, a pizza place right next door, bus stop just steps away as well. English muffins, juice, milk, coffee, tea and an assortment of cereal and fruit in a bowl for breakfast. They held our luggage for us for 8 hours too. We could not have been happier here. It was a bit pricey in Nov. ($226 through AAA) but in comparison with everywhere else we checked out a GREAT value. It's like a cute 1-bedroom apt. with wood floors and a lot of charm. Hope this helps in your decision making! Enjoy the city! I'll try to get my husband to help me with attaching some pics of the place later on.

good value, convenient, good for families

by TripAdvisor Member Vaturne

We've stayed in NY for 5 days twice in the last month - the first time with friends who were concerned about costs, and the second with our grown up children. The first time we stayed in hostel accommodation - very cheap - 28 dollars per person per night but very cramped, no closets, tiny bathroom and dirty public areas, and a long way away from main Manhattan attractions

This time we chose the Hospitality House - OK It was more expensive - just over 300 dollars a night for a 2 bedroom/6 person suite, but so so much more convenient and comfortable - and actually much better value for what you got for your money. The suite was spacious - 1 bedroom with a king size bed, 1 bedroom with a Queen and a double sleep/sofa in the living area. The kitchen was well equipped - full size oven, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer so you could save by preparing your own meals rather than eating out if you wished; breakfast (muffins, orange juice cereal, milk) is left in the kitchen daily - or there are plenty of delis/restautants within walking distance. NY is exhausting so it was so good to be able to come back to somewhere private, comfortable and relaxing to regroup in late afternoon before going out again for a show or a meal. Times sq, rockerfeller centre, 5th ave, and the Metro all within easy walking distance

I'd choose it again without hesitation - Oh and 3 TVs and free high speed internet access & friendly service as well.

One disadvantage is noise - not from the hotel itself but from the street - NY is a very noisy city, and yes the A/C units in this 1899 building are set in the windows and are quite noisy - we just turned them off at night but we wouldn't have been able to do that when we visited in sweltering July.

The hotel has a penthouse suite which apparently has two bathrooms ratherthan just one as we had - and it only costs a little more so maybe worth it if that's imprtant to you.

Very good value!

We booked that Best Western at a travel agency under another brand. When I read the description I was expecting the worst. But it exactly met our needs and the price (64€/person...hey it's New York!) sounded good. I was very surprised when we arrived. These are real appartments: bedroom, living room (with sleeper sofa) and a kitchen. When you're done with fast food, and not willing to pay the prices of the restaurants, you may cook there just like home. The rooms are clean and nothing special. The staff is friendly and helpful. So if you're looking for a good deal in NYC and you don't want to spend a lot of time in your hotel room this migt be the place.

Home from home, we loved it...

by A TripAdvisor Member

We have just spent 5 nights at this apartment loving every minute of it.
This place is very spacious and at New York sizes ( Enormous ). You get a large lounge, comfortably furnished and including a dining table with 6 chairs, TV, writing desk with pc connection availability. A sizeable bedroom with huge ( very comfy ) bed, Bathroom and kitchen.
It was great to arrive and find a bowl of fresh fruit which was restocked every day. The fridge had fresh milk, muffins, Orange juice, jam and butter, with a choice of cereals, tea and coffee. These were also restocked on a daily basis.It was so nice to be able to do yourselves a drink whenever you wanted and to be able to take your breakfast in bed if that was your wish.
We found the service second to non and the staff were always polite and extremely helpful. The lobby is nothing to shout home about but you only see that in passing.
The building is flanked by Restaurants and if you take a left out of the building, cross over the 1st road you come to - there you will find a wonderful Indian eaterie with both Chinese and Mexican restaurants across the road.All within 5 minutes of your Hotel ( Dreamland ). A fabulous place to stay - We would definately go back.........

Real New York Living

by TripAdvisor Member lovethesun&cerveza

Stayed over the Turkey Day holiday. More than enough room for four. Large rooms, large enough bath, all perfect. Cont. Breakfast in our own apartment is very convenient - it is nice to have the opportunity to have breakfast in your underwear without needing to go down to the lobby! Great central location. Easy walk to Times Square, shopping and all of the AQpples finest. Adjacent pizzeria was tasty, as was Ashton's down the street. You will not find more space for less money in a great neighborhood. I will stay again.

Great location and price!

by TripAdvisor Member connectedtraveller

Our family stayed over the US Thanksgiving weekend, we were more than pleased with the property. Usually when my husband are in NY we stay at the W in Times Square. This time we had our parents and friends with us so we decided on the BW so we could all stay together. The room(s) were very large for NY standards. The LR was very spacious and the kitchen was great to have to make our our breakfats(food supplied by the Hotel) and snacks.I booked this property because of reviews on TripAdvisor, I was not disappointed, we would stay here again.
PS. Don't let the small lobby and small halls when you get off the elevator discourage you, the rooms are worth it !

Great Hotel with very friendly staff

by A TripAdvisor Member

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and son(19) we were met by a very friendly member of staff who made us feel really welcome, we were very impressed with our room because of the size and facilities. The kitchen was well stocked with essential food and drink items, there was even a kettle which means a lot to us british tea drinkers. the location of the hotel was brilliant, it was within walking distance to many of the attractions. We would not hesitate to stay there again and would reccommend this hotel to anyone especially families who like to cater for themselvesl,due to the kitchen facilities being excellent and it having a very large dishwasher. We had a TV in the bedroom and also one in the living room. On our day of departure the hotel staff were again very helpful, they let us leave our luggage with them due to our late flight and arranged our transport to the airport.

Not bad

by TripAdvisor Member Lillia

This is a great place to stay if you needs lots of space and some independence (kitchen very handy). The location is also ideal. However if cleanliness and hot showers are of high importance to you, don't bother.

Having read the other reviews I was a bit disappointed with our stay here, however I would stay again for the location, amount of space and price.

I found the maid service to be the worst I have ever come across in any hotel or serviced apartment.

We stayed five nights - the bed was only made on 3 out of those 5 nights and the sheets were not changed at all during our stay. The blankets on the bed were very grubby and worn. The bathroom tiles were very cracked and the bath absurdly shallow. The floors were not swept nor the carpets hoovered in 5 nights we spent there.

When we arrived there was dirty cutlery in the drawer and only 1 knife.

Another negative was the heating and air conditioning. These were both very noisy when in operation (forgivable as this is an old building). The main problem we had was trying to control the temperature in the room - it was either freezing or sweltering. Staff were unable to assist as the heat was controlled via a main boiler room. We also had cold showers on our last 2 days as there was no hot water!

In general although staff were friendly enough, but as some refurbishment was being carried out in the building, they seemed a bit distracted. This may explain some of the problems we experienced above.

Please note, there are no bell boys or room service here, but this was not a problem for us.

It is in a good location and seems to have received a good review. See Trip Advisor web site:

On restaurants, go to the Chowhound's Manhattan message board and ask for recommendations giving location, type of cuisine and price range.

Re: Re: Best Western Hospitality House 145E 49th

by Tayto

Thanks for those useful hints - I will definitely follow them up.

New York: Safe Central Hotel

by Torontogal

My 13 year old son and I may visit Manhattan in May. Can you recommend a central, reasonably priced hotel?? Has anyone stayed at Best Western Hospitality House??? Have any Canadian members used a hotel discount net site they would recommend?? We plan to do shows, the Intrepid , Circle Line, Met Museum, etc.Thank you for taking the time to reply!!

Re: New York: Safe Central Hotel

by zuriga

One of the better deals in Manhattan is On the Avenue which is at about 78th and Broadway. It's right near a subway stop (the subways ARE very safe) and a bus line. The rooms are good-sized and not over the top for prices. I'd also check out to see what they have to offer, along with Priceline. The Edison is another good choice (near the theaters) and the Millenium Broadway often has great weekend rates. Have a great time!

best western hotels new york

by san012

im tossing up between the best western president and the best western convetion centre does anyone know what these two hotels are like? also i stayed really close to times square on my last visit i was just wanting to know how far and how safe is it to walk to shopping in times sqaure after dark from the convention centre hotel which i believe is around the mepire state area? also can anyone tell me about the best western hospitality house? thanks

RE: best western hotels new york

by devil66

I have not been to any of these, but the President is the most central (closest to Times Square). The Convention B/W is way out between 10th and 11th Avenue (note, this is NOT around the ESB [Empire State Building] area.) It is not an unsafe area, but there is not much here especially at night. I would not stay here - it is for the conventioners. The Hospitality House is close to the UN. It's a fine neighborhood. Not as touristy as the President's area.

Pretty much all of Manhattan is very safe these days, so aside from the basic guard your wallet advice, don't fret too much about being killed.

RE: RE: best western hotels new york

by Docu2001

There is also a Best Western (if you are inclined to stay in one) near the South Street Seaport and Chinatown - a completely different part of town and not at all as crazy and touristy as Midtown ... Something to consider ... I think they also have good rates.

Have fun
