A great place to stay on a budget!
Stayed at Club Quarters in Feb. 2005. It's right next to Wall St and a very safe area. It's very close to several subway locations. The place is neat and clean, looks pretty new (hallway carpeting and room decor). You can't beat the price for NYC. I would definitely stay there again!
Excellent location, value and service.
After staying for a few days at Fort Lee, it was soothing to be at the Club Quarters! On top of the service, location and value! The facilities are just as good as any five stars costing 2 times more within walking distance.
Do not expect big spaces!! After all you are in New York! But the limited space is equipped with top of the line EVERYTHING!!
It had become my preferred choice for staying in New York City, as you are right in the center of action without suffering the commotion!
Spartan but well-located
Club Quarters is located in the Financial District, very close to Wall Street, NYSE, Trinity Church, WTC. There's a subway entrance around the corner from the hotel, as well as a yummy place to get a quick bagel (B&Company) next to Starbucks (across the street from the Trump building and the subway entrance). Club Quarters downtown (or as I heard another guest refer to it, "Close Quarters") has small rooms, especially for two people- but since we didn't spend much time in the room, it wasn't an issue.
Free wireless internet access in the rooms (bring your own wireless-equipped computer- they also can loan you or sell you a wireless card at the front desk if necessary). The bathroom is pretty small, with only a shower (no tub), and there's no iron in the room. Each floor has a "Guest Request" closet with one iron, ironing board, and extra coffee for the room coffee pots (which are set up in the bathroom). Checkout is at noon, and if you want to have the hotel hold your bags, they charge $1/per bag for the entire day. Regular luggage is kept on the second floor (conference level) and laptops are kept behind the front desk; the porter on duty issues you a claim tag for when you return to pick up your baggage. Since he doesn't sit there all of the time, allow 10-15 minutes to retrieve your stuff, especially if the front desk needs to page him. There's only one ice machine (on the 3rd floor), and the junk food vending machine was out of order when I was there (week of May 3-8th). Club Quarters is OK for stays where you don't need amenities, and it was a decent starting place for exploring downtown.
Best rate for Easter weekend!
We decided last-minute (week before) to spend Easter weekend in NYC. So we got the Club Quarters for $125/night on Priceline. About $150/night with taxes. We felt that it was a good rate, considering the other rates we were seeing for other comparable hotels on Expedia, etc were $200 and $300 per night!
Club Quarters started out as a "members only" hotel, but now they take reservations from anybody. We asked about the "club membership", and they said that only businesses can "join", and their members get rooms for as low as $69/night. Hmmmmm...
The hotel is in a historic-looking 20-story building. It must've been an old office building back in the day. But the floors are small, and thus the rooms are small. But we read about them on this and other boards, so we were not surprised. Our room had a queen bed, table with the 27 in TV, and an armoire that held lots of clothes. The bathroom was VERY small, with a shower-stall (after "sharing" our 1st shower together, we opted to shower separately the rest of the weekend!), sink and toilet. But it worked, and we had no issues with hot water like other folks here. We had a large window facing north, with views of some of the other high-rise buildings in the area. There was also a dorm-sized refrigerator in the room--great for your water and sodas!
THE LOCATION IS AWESOME! There is a subway station (2&3 line) right underneath the hotel. With the $7 all-day transit pass, it made for getting around Manhatten VERY EASY and convenient. We left our car in the garage 2 blocks away, and with the hotel validation, it was $25/day. That's what we would pay at our "other" cheap garage that we know about elsewhere in Manhatten......
You can check in and out via the front desk folks, or use the automated ATM-looking machines spread out among the lobby. They also have a "living room" behind the lobby with a big TV, lots of chairs and couches, and 2 PC's with free internet connections for quests. We used them one day to check on a restaurant location, which was very handy for us!
There is a restaurant on-site, but it's closed on the weekends. There is a Duane Reed store right across the street, that was open when we needed it--they are like a mini-convenience store. Soda, snacks, newspaper, etc. Starbucks was 1/2 block away on Wall Street, which was great for coffee each morning--we opted not to use the in-room coffee maker for convenience. (?)
SUMMARY - The room was small, but we didn't mind as we weren't there much except to shower and sleep. The over-all look of the hotel was new and clean. Staff seemed pleasant, although we did not require much interaction with them. We conveniently checked our bags with the hotel on Sunday after checking out ($1/bag), until it was time for us to drive home.
We would stay here again, but we are not "Brand loyal" to any hotel, just as long as we get a good rate and it's clean!
Boring Budget Beds
Well, I just checked-in and I'm surprised that corporations would use this hotel for anything but junior staff.... Its like a corp dorm... no HBO or anything but basic channels, a full sized bed, a desk with a chair that is so low I can't really type... carpet is like sandpaper - so bring slippers or keep your socks on.... room is clean and furnishings are dull and minimal... there was plenty of hot water this evening... and the bath is OK in my room.
I'm here for one night - so its OK.. but for anyone staying longer, consider somewhere else... especially on weekends... there is nothing at all open unless you walk to Broadway for McDonalds.
I got my room for less than $100 on priceline... by selecting downtown as a last resort.... but won't do that again... whatever you save on the room you'll spend on transportation to get somewhere... although you could walk to south street seaport or even chinatown... during the week there is lots open...
Subway access is good...
Earlier this week I stayed at the new hotel QT on 45th street - and they know how to do a budget hotel with some class....
Club Quarters had me expecting something special since you have to be a 'member' to stay here if you're not booking through one of the online booking sites - but I found a Motel-6 in the middle of the financial district....
Unless NYC is very busy, you can probably find better for the same money... Overall, not terrible, but nothing more than adequate...
My wife and I will be in NY in a couple of weeks. I was looking for anyone's opinion on the following hotels:
Club Quarters Midtown
Which of these would have the quietest rooms?
