A nice place to stay in a busy city

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 23, 2012

I rented a small room with a "full" bed for $209 + tax. The room was very clean, tidy, and nicely air-conditioned on arrival on a 90+ degree day. The bed was surprisingly soft and comfortable, the shower had great water pressure, the TV was in good working order, and the room had a nice deep closet. The front desk staff were professional and helpful (later on in an emergency situation, they helped me quickly find a place to get a new dress shirt). The restaurant on the ground floor served a large menu and the food was excellent, although a bit pricy at times (6 small pancakes, coffee and an orange juice + tax = $46). Overall it was a well run, clean, and quiet place to stay in the heart of a noisy & cluttered city. If I find myself in NYC again, I will probably stay there again. P.S. In response to some other posts, there were 3 elevators working (2 main and one smaller one), no signs of construction, and my room on the 7th floor facing 55th street.

Unique Quality: Nice and quiet, clean and friendly staff. The back stairs on the 55th street side are made of beautiful stone, each with a lion crest relief on them.

Directions: Midtown theater district. Three blocks from central park.

Not Quite a Dream

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

While the neon glow beneathe the bed and in the desk did soothe my soul a bit, the price I paid to stay in a shoebox was definitely not worth it. The room wasn't nearly what I expected from the online pictures.

Unique Quality: Deepak Chopra Ayurvedic Healing Center

Each room has a huge plasma TV.

Directions: W 55th and Broadway

If you don't like to sleep stay here

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 7, 2006

Why is this place called DREAM? Because you dream of a good night's rest? Teeny, tiny room aside, we could not sleep. They have this nightclub upstairs that they only let goofy people in. As hotel guests, even we could not get in.

Ok, so this club is so small that people like to smoke in the fire escape. BAD IDEA. The fire alarm kept going off for 40 minutes. And we were hung over! Worst night ever. Probably would have had a better night if we stayed at a Best Western. Trendy boutique hotels aren't always the best choice.

Unique Quality: Small rooms, great if you are a midget. But nice interiors. Very modern. Did I say it was small? oh, can you cant get into the bar even though you paid out of your a$$ to stay at the hotel.

Great little Gem

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 6, 2006

We found this great little gem that is 5 blocks from time square, right across from carnegie hall and beside the ed sullivan theatre. It was a great location. The rooms were small as all hotel rooms are in NY but well kept, newer and very clean. We had to check out quite a few hours before our flight but they kindly locked our bags up for us while we toured a little more on our last day. There was a nice club on the roof top.

I would recommend this hotel especially since we got it for 99$/night cnd.

Unique Quality: Great roof top lounge/bar

Directions: time square

Great Midtown Hotel!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 16, 2006

This place is a great place to stay in Manhattan, in the $175 - $200 range. Which, if you have ever tried to stay in Manhattan (in something that doesn't share a bathroom per floor), you know that is a pretty good price. Small rooms, but nicely decorated and modernly appointed. The joint was remodeled a couple of years ago, and rooms have nice new touches like flat panel wall TVs and pre-loaded iPods. Perfect location for access to the city.

Unique Quality: Plasma flat panels on the wall... Come on! Need I say more?

Directions: Just south of Central Park by Carnegie Hall.

NYC hotel - great location - reasonable price!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 8, 2003

Right around the corner from the Carnegie Deli and a short walk from Times Square, Central Park and the Theater District, this hotel is a great find. It's good to ask for a room in the back that doesn't face 55th to avoid the traffic noise. You won't get any view - except for the scaffolding on the building being renovated next door - but you might get a better night's sleep! Rooms are small but very comfortable. Ours must have been recently renovated becasue we had cool bathroom fixtures that looked brand new. The heater/air conditioner was a little noisy but you get used to it. The rates were really reasonable - for Manhattan anyway. There is no restaurant inside the hotel but there are plenty to choose from right around the corner on 7th Avenue or Broadway. (My favorite is the Carnegie Deli!) There is usually some unusual music and video playing in the hotel lobby. The desk staff wasn't the friendliest but the bellmen were really great.

Directions: Midtown Manhattan / Theater District
