We had a good stay here in november 1999,
the hotel is a 1930s art deco style building .
The rooms were clean bathroom was small with a bath.
Unique Quality: Great views over the city. a good place for breakfast is the hotels Tic tock diner..
Directions: This hotel is on 34th and 8th three city blocks away from the Empire state building and one block away from Macys the largest department store in the world.
5th avenue and times square are within walking distance.
We just loved this hotel for many reasons. It was reasonably priced, located directly across the street from Madison Square Garden. Within walking distance of Broadway. They have a diner type restaurant attached to the hotel which is open 24 hours and in my opinion one of the best values for a meal in NY. They were kid friendly and we sat in a booth watching it snow and people hustling and bustling for hours. They also have direct indoor access to an Italian restaurant that is fantastic. Medium price but still great value compared to other in NYC. Great service. The rooms here are small but all the rooms in NYC are small unless you're staying with Donald Trump's budget. Their concierge staff was so terrific, telling us approximately what taxi fares should be from the hotel to a particular place and some ways to make sure we weren't cheated. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Friends told me I was crazy to drive into the City but I did and the hotel was very close to all tunnels for easy access. They had valet/daily parking for a decent price all things considered.
Unique Quality: Great views of the Empire State building! Great location! Great staff!
Directions: Directly across the street from Madison Square Garden.
If you are looking for a hotel in a great location, look no further. The Ramada Plaza New Yorker hotel is close to Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building, Macy's and even Times Square.
Arriving: when you exit the subway the hotel is right around the corner.
I've read alot of bad things about this hotel on the internet but I don't have any real complaints...
Check in and check out was smooth, very friendly staff. Did I mention the hotels great location ?
Cons: room was a little small for three people, we didn't have much of a view , bathtub + sink need replacement (worked but way too old)
Conclusion: If you are looking for a decent hotel in a great location: this is it
One last tip: Ticktock diner (inside hotel) is really expensive, we had breakfast every day at Cafe34.
Unique Quality: none
Directions: A few steps away from Madison Square Garden
Oh yes, when I go back to NYC this is the hotel I'm gonna stay at - again!
It's clean, nice and service minded staff and they have a great place for breakfast! :o)
The location is like I said PERFECT specially if you are only staying like I did for a weekend. Just put on your walking shoes, step out from the hotel and enjoy Manhattan
Directions: Almost a cross the street from Madison Square Garden
Ramada New Yorker Hotel, right in the heart of NYC opposite Madison Square Gardens and 5 mins walk from Pennsylvania Station. Very old hotel, not exactly new fittings in the room, but location was perfect for seeing NYC. Roy found that it was very affordable if you booked in advance over the internet.
Unique Quality: Business centre and gym downstairs, good view from the window of the room providing you gave yourself a hernia, friendly staff. Good security too, if you came back late at night, they checked to see if you really had a room key.
Handy all night restaurant through the lobby of hotel.
This hotel is on 8th avenue, about 10mins walk from Times Square. At first, you see the really nice and classy lobby and think, this must be a good hotel... but no....the rooms are too small, the beds really uncomfortable, the bathroom dates from the 60's and the general service is appalling. Added "touch" is the street noise you can hear from your room (I was on the 13th floor).
The New Yorker sounded, and still sounds, like the perfect hotel in New York. It has a good location, a good reputation and a good price.
The hotel is 44 storeys tall, which makes it one of the bigger buildings around. So you're bound to have a great view of Manhattan. It's also a very clean hotel, and the service is very good. The rooms however can be very small. But if you're in Manhattan, why would you stay in your room anyway?
Unique Quality: The hotel is right next to Penn Station. So if you arrive by train, you don't have to walk far with your luggage. At this station you can also take the subway to virtually anywhere in New York, whether it's uptown or downtown. In less than 5 minutes you can be at Macy's, Times Square or the Empire State Building on foot.
Directions: Five minutes from the Empire State Building, right across Madison Square Gardens
Stayed in this hotel after booking the whole holiday package through a British company. The hotel was supposed to have been updated, and that may well have been true. I just can't put a date on when it happened. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone.Rooms were tidy, but didn't trust the carpets had ever been cleaned. Bathroom dingy.
Unique Quality: None. Good for getting to the Empire State Building
Directions: 34th Street, near Macys, and Penn Station.Across street from Madison Square Garden
That's a great hotel, especially when you get a room upstairs in midtown Manhattan. It is located opposite of Pennsylvania Staion (railway station) and has more than 1000 rooms. It's not the cheapest choice, but worth it!!!
Directions: opposite of penn station
The best thing about this hotel is its location in Midtown Manhattan. Directly across the street is Madison Square Garden and Pennsylvania Station. One street east is the world renowned Macy's department store and a 5 minutes walk takes you to the Empire State Building.
This is a first class hotel and the rooms are nicely decorated. All the hotel rooms are above the 18th floor so you are sure to have a good view. It is a large hotel with over 1000 rooms.
Directions: On the corner of 8th Avenue and 34th Street
We visited New York City also in the Summer of 2002 and stayed only for one night, here at the New Yorker.
This year in the summer of 2003 we again stayed here for two nights.
We thought the location was fine, tube station locally, and knew the layout of the land from here.
Unique Quality: There is a fitness centre, shop and laundry in the basement. (access via stairs or escalator). You need your card key to gain access to the laundry and fitness centre, also the toilets that are located in the basement.
There is a coffee bar, a restaurant and a bar on site.
They did not have tea/coffee making facilities in the room though, and no hair dryer!!!!
Another thing struck me as odd, the reception area is absolutely huge and yet there is nowhere to sit!!!!! Sometimes people like to sit in the hotel lobby before they set off on their travels, or write a few postcards, purchased at the hotel and post them on your way out, and although there is a small cafe to one side, there is not a general sitting area!
There is also offices situated in the hotel, and a ballroom, although I never saw it. In fact quite a lot of famous people have visited this hotel/ballroom including John F. Kennedy.
Directions: On the opposite corner to Madison Square Garden
The New Yorker offers travelers and tourists 1,000 newly renovated guestrooms with spectacular views of New York City. The New Yorker will welcome you with gracious hospitality and service in a landmark setting. The New Yorker is the most convenient hotel in the city, offering easy access to all of Manhattan's important sites.
The New Yorker was the largest hotel in New York with around 2,500 rooms during the 20's and 30's. In more recent times however only 1,000 guestrooms are available in order to maximize the space for other ballrooms and conference centers.
Unique Quality: With a great view in any room, the New Yorker is a must stay for those looking for a historical and classy hotel. Quite cheap for its location, quality, and history, the New Yorker has been the most pleasent hotel I've ever stayed at in New York City. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the Big Apple!
Directions: 1 block from Madison Sq. Garden & 5 to Times Sq. & 5 blocks to Empire State Bldg
My mom stayed at the Ramada New Yorker July 2002. She was able to stay here for free since her nephew put her here on her business account so she didn't complain. It's location is great, 8th Avenue between 34th & 35th Street but the hotel was skanky. Her room was microscopic, the bathtub was filthy and the hallways were dark and dingy. The lobby looks nice so I guess the hotel fools people but I wouldn't recommend this place since there are so many other nice places to stay in NYC. My mom got the room for free for 5 days which did help her get over the overall disappointment of the hotel :-)
Unique Quality: Nice lobby, good location. That's the only 2 positive qualities.
Directions: One block north of Madison Square Garden
The New Yorker Hotel, Ramada Inn & Plaza, very central just a 10 minuttes walk from either The Empire State building and The Times Square. (Closest nabour was Madison Square Garden)
We payed $95 a night for 2 persons in a double room with our own shower/toilet, TV, telephone and aircondition.
The room was cleaned and the beddings/towels was changed every day.
Keep in mind this is not a luxury hotel by any means, you might have to wait an hour in line to check in/out, but considering the 'low' price it was a very nice place for us to stay.

Has anyone stayed in the Ramada New Yorker?
I foolishly booked 5 nights there before I discovered Trip Advisor!
I'm not expecting anything grand - clean, safe and somewhere to sleep and shower is enough for me as don't plan on spending much time in there!
Trip Advisor's giving me nightmares though! :)
Any feedback appreciated.
i dont have any experience with this hotel.
but i have found tripadvisor to be pretty much full of negative people. several hotels i have stayed in this year were trashed by it. maybe there are better hotels out there. but for the money i pay i am happy or thrilled with the places that ta trashes.
good luck with the search
I find tripadvisor.com to be very reliable. I disregard the very best and very worst reviews because I cynically believe they're written by the owners and their competitors. Somewhere in the middle is the truth.
The good news is that it's incredibly easy to get around Manhattan, so as long as you have a clean place to sleep, don't worry. Hopefully you won't be spending too much time in your hotel, anyway.
I stayed there a few years ago, and unless it's changed drastically, the comments on tripadvisor would seem to be appropriate. I personally would not stay there again.
