  • the MEANEST front desk receptionist EVER!!

    by

    I booked this room through one of the bargain deal hotel websites thinking I was going to make this a solo trip to NYC. However, life happens and plans change. Wanting a larger room which could accomodate two people, I called the hotel directly to make the change. First of all, when they answered, they tersely said "HELLO!" A properly answered front desk greeting for a hotel is to state the name of the hotel at least. Not knowing if I had dialed the correct number, I asked if this was the hotel by name. "Yes," he stated with a heavy Indian accent. With nothing more said on the other side, I proceeded with my inquiry deciding to ignore the rudeness (after all NYC is not known for their kindred spirits and overwhelming hospitality). He gives a chuckle after my request and starts speaking to someone on the other side in Hindi about how this American is so.....You get the picture. The guy was making fun of me thinking I did not understand!! This is how the service began at this place before I even arrived there. You cannot imagine what happens next. Truly, the rudest and meanest front staff ever! They are definitely not service orientated.

    Unique Quality: Rudeness abounds!!

Accomodation

by vpbebe

Hi all! im heading to new york 1st to 6th of july and im on a strict budget of $100 dollars a night cos im travelling on to las vegas and west coast after this for 3 weeks. Im considering some hotels but im wondering has anyone ever stayed in them or heard anything bout them. They are Hotel 31, Wellington Hotel, Grand Union, Bedford Hotel and the Clarion Park Avenue. These hotels are all near empire state and grand central station sorta. Is this central? Can anyone recommend any clean central budget accomodation instead?? Thanks x

There's another terrific forum about NY called www.askanewyorker.com, and there's been lots of advice about budget accommodations. Take a look at their forum and use the search function. They've also got some budget recommendations on their FAQ page.

You might also consider staying at a hostel, you'd save $$$.

Anyway, there are a lot of budget hotels that advertise as being near the Empire State Bldg. FYI, that's not the most impressive address in Manhattan. West of 5th Ave. along 32nd Street is known as Little Korea, and there are lots of budget hotels there. There are also budget places on the upper west side, and hostels around town -- the Big Apple Hostel in the Times Square area is popular. Don't worry too much about being "centrally" located, just get here. The public transport system will get you to any destination easily.

Sounds like hotel 31 is exactly what you are looking for! see my pages for more info. The location is good since it is in a relatively quite and decent neighbourhood, close to the empire state building. Uptown is a walking distance away. I used the metro to go to down town. Enjoy your stay!

Hi

I am staying at The Bedford next week, so I can let you know what it was like if you are still looking at the end of this month.
