    We loved our stay at the Metro.We had just arrived after a long flight from Buenos Aires,and Richard had a fever- he was feeling really ill, shaking and feverish It was 7am in January, and freezing cold. The management were very helpful, and as our room had not yet been vacated, they gave us another smaller room in the meantime, so that my poor husband could lay down and rest. This was a God-send.
    Later we were moved to our room, which was large, airy and comfortable- with a great art-deco ambiance. Bathroom modern,large and clean. Street noises may annoy some- New York sirens going day and night-but thats part of the excitement of being there, and we soon grew used to it. We were situated on the 10th floor. The Staff were friendly and welcoming.
    Lifts were a bit slow and overloaded- more are needed.
    While we stayed here, there seemed to be an influx of British visitors who come over to do shopping.

    Wonderful Mid-town location (10 mins walk from Times Square, 1 min to the nearest metro station and just around the corner from the Empire State building),with a roof top terrace that almost touches the Empire State building.
    Continental Breakfast is included, and drinks and snacks available in the Metro grill and on Rooftop Terrace.

    Unique Quality: Loved the art-deco touches everwhere, and old photos on the walls of movie stars of yesteryear.
    Locality- close to Macys ,Empire State, Times Square and Metro Station

    The hotel is clean, is in the perfect location, but has a lot of negative points. If you only plan on sleeping here and not spending too much time awake, this is a good place to stay. If you're looking for some "atmosphere" you will have to go somewhere else. We were happy with our stay here, mainly because we didn't spend a lot of time here. ;-) They do offer a good breakfast in the mornings (but we only ate there once). And one of the doormen was really great and did whatever he could to help guests.

    The room keys demagnetize easily, which means you have to have them reactivated every day (it doesn't matter where you store them, they will demagnetize).

    The hotel only has 3 elevators, one of which was out of service when we stayed there, meaning we had 2 elevators for 179 rooms and the rooftop bar. Sometimes you had to wait more than 15 minutes for an elevator. Staff didn't really care about this problem as they used one of the elevators for deliveries to the rooftop bar during the busiest time of day (right before check-out time).

    The rooftop bar could be amazing (you have to go up there for the view) but staff really ruins the experience. The manager (at least we think he was the manager) was flirting with female customers and couldn't care less about other guests, cocktails were weak and expensive.

    Unique Quality: As said in the title: Location, location, location. The hotel is located really close to the Herald Square subway station entrance (on W 35th Street & 6th Avenue). I think 8 subway lines stop here, and it's an express station (meaning all trains stop there). It's also practically next to the Empire State Building, and you have a great view of the ESB from the rooftop bar terrace.

    Directions: Midtown West (on W 35th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue)

    We loved this hotel - the staff were SOOOO helpful. But here's the tip - there's an all day tea room with endless free supplies of all variety of bagels, fresh OJ, tea coffee. So if you're travelling on a budget you have a HUGE breakfast, that keeps you going for hours and allows you to see as much as you have time to, yet if you need time-out, a sit down in a nice place, free refreshment this place is great! Complementary breakfast really made our budget trip easier! And we had a bit of bother finding hotels with complementrary breakfast, so it was a bonus that it's open all hours!

    Unique Quality: Just real NYC feel to it. The staff, the outside noise, and a great location for all things touristy.
    Apologies, I can't remember the exact price but thought the free allday breakfast room was really value!

    Directions: two secs from Empire State

  • We stayed at the Hotel Metro...


    We stayed at the Hotel Metro on W 35th Street. Just round the corner from Macys & the Empire State. Also had a subways stop within 100m.

    Unique Quality: Reasonable price, Retro design which gets a poor write up in some travel books but which was actually quite good.
    Free coffee available all day & buffet breakfast sets you up for a busy day.

    Rooms quite small but clean & perfectly adequate when you really on sleep there.
    There was a large shower though - just right for two!!!

Great location and price with an authentic NYC vibe

I stayed at the Hotel Metro last weekend, June 17-20,2004. I too was a bit leery reading the reviews on this site, but found the hotel to offer a true "New York experience" that I doubt could be found at most large, popular chains. For the $150/night we paid for the room on, we were thoroughly satisfied and would stay there again.

The hotel is a meer 4-5 blocks from Penn Station and Times Square, and less than one block from 5th avenue, on the edge of the Fashion District. The decor is a sophisticated and sexy art deco style, themed around film stars of the 1930's. The waitstaff was prompt and pleasant during all exchanges.

The rooms were well appointed but small. Accomodations were clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms boasted a refreshingly different rose marble decor with a fully enclosed glass shower. There is a rather large refrigerator in the room as well, an expected bonus in a downtown NYC hotel!

Besides an interesting decor in the lobby and rooms, the hotel offered several other interesting areas for gathering and entertainment. There is an attached restaurant/bar next door called the Metro Grill. The atmosphere was pleasant, the barstaff friendly and quite generous :) There is also a rooftop bar, with an extremely upclose view of the uppermost towers of the Empire State building (which is on the next block). To our disappointment, the rooftop bar was not in operation during our entire stay, which was over a weekend. The nights were rather cool however, which may explain why.

The hotel also had a well appointed rooftop gym.

Overall, our stay at the Hotel Metro was excellent and I highly recommend it. However, due to the size of the rooms and overall theme, I do not recommend this as a family hotel. For couples looking for a sophisticated, sexy theme in the heart of Manhattan, it's a sure bet. Also, priced $50-150/night cheaper than many other downtown NYC hotels, it is an excellent bargain.

very nice 3* hotel

The Metro Hotel is a well priced hotel situated in a very good location. Macy's, Times Square and the Empire State building are all very close and the staff are fantastic. definately recommend staying there.

fantastic for the family

We had a wonderful time in NYC June, 2004 while staying at the Metro Hotel. The suites are large and comfortable, easily housing our family of 4. The continental breakfast was convenient and tasty, and the hotel staff was wonderful. The location was great, close to subway stops, Empire State Building, and Times Square, and our room was a quiet resting place. I will stay there every time I visit NYC.

We stayed for five nights at the Metro. We had a queen room. It was a nice size with a comfortable bed. Art deco decor but rather plain. The chairs had worn fabric, needed recovering. Bathroom small but nice. We had a room in the back so it was very quiet. The rooftop terrace had nice views. The hotel is on a fairly quiet street but is walking distance to Penn Station and Times Square. Subway a block away. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Price for this room seemed high to me but I guess is average for New York City.
