Poor Service and Scammed for additional $$$

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 17, 2010

We booked this hotel via Priceline and stayed there for 4 nights. They insisted that we give them a $100 fully refundable deposit for "incidentals" but refused to elaborate on what those were. Since I paid $25 for internet access with a different card, I knew it was not that. Nor was there any kind of bar or refreshments in the room for purchase. They ran the "deposit" for $100 which showed up on my bank account as an ATM cash withdrawal along with $4 in service charges! They never refunded any of the "deposit" even though we left the room in great shape.

In addition, they first led us to a floor that was full of PAINT FUMES and in the process of being renovated. Since I have COPD and Asthma, we asked for another floor. They then took us to a room with NO HEAT which was ridiculous since it was 24 degrees out! Finally we were taken to the floor above the paint fumes and had to call down for towels. The bathroom was funky and had a plain plate of glass as the shower stall held in place with only some caulking which had black mold on it.
The staff at the check-in desk was not friendly either, and it looked like the bell man was running the place. I would never return again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Unique Quality: NO FACILITIES except a bar in the lounge.

Directions: Close to the Theater District.

Good Location, however small rooms

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 1, 2004

The hotel itself is a great location, just a short walk from Times Square. Pleasant modern decorartion.

Good bagels and coffee for breakfast.

Make sure you get a room that is on one of the upper floors, as the room we had was really small. You literally had you feet in the bedroom whilst sitting on the loo.

Unique Quality: We came back to our room one night to find that somehow the room was locked and we had to get the night porter to "break into" our own room.

Unique Quality: If it needs re-emphasizing, the Ameritania is a fabulous value, a very good rate for the midtown location. And the bathroom, verrrry spacious, lots of counter space too, for all your essentials.

Directions: 54th and Broadway, same block as Letterman's theatre...

I got this one through the internet, although I noticed even for the one Thurs night in question, different sites had different prices, from $99US all the way to $139US...each site claiming it had the *lowest* possible rate! So do your homework and you can certainly find some incredible deals, even in New York City, even for a room with a private bath and a central midtown location. The Ameritania's staff was attentive, they were quick to bring in a toasty portable heater to my room when I reported the main radiator was kaput. Hairdryer, cool little toiletry items, a clock radio with a CD player, go figure! Would've been nice if the ice machine a few doors down was working, instead it had a label which advised the nearest functioning alternative was five floors down...;-(

Unique Quality: A *New York breakfast* is included in the basic room rate...you know that means bagels, bagels, bagels, right? ;-)) But they were good bagels, and they came wih real Philly cream cheese...mmmmmmm! Coffee and juice, too, a simple affair but it saves you at least $7US or so at any nearby diner, seriously.

Directions: right next to Letterman's theatre, so when you are blessed with Dave tix, stay at the Ameritania and you have it made! Otherwise, it's still in the heart of the theatre district at 54th and Broadway.
