If all or part of your visit is to go to the theater, this is an ideal choice. Within a block of the TKTS day of show ticket booths on Times Square, what could be better? Look for off season deals to get best value. It's a fairly noisy location, especially since a fire station is just down the block...

I booked this hotel through their page, I thought it was going to be a nice spacious room with a double bed. Well, the room I got looked nothing like the ones they show in their pictures and on top of that we got two twin beds. Only one of the beds had a comforter. I called the front desk...

So we stayed here for three nights in Feb 17 and over Presidents Day weekend. Despite the American holiday, the hotel didn't seem too busy. First impressions, lobby seemed clean and modern. Checked in around 9pm and the guy at reception didn't smile, or greet us in a particularly friendly manner. Doesn't make or break things but when you've just...

When you go to NYC you know rooms are small. But as small as to barely fit standing on the side of the bed? And the front desk staff do have an attitude. Again, is what you have to expect when traveling to the city, but more so.

This hotel is perfect location - right round the corner from Times Square and 10 minute walk to central park. The hotel is lovely and clean, very modern. The staff were friendly, pleasant and always willing to help. There is an ATM in the lobby which was useful. The room had everything you need but I did think it was...

Price at this time of the year is friendly on the pocket plus it is in a prime location and tourist sites are mostly within walking distance. Queen deluxe Room is decent enough for 2 people considering NYC standards. No microwave oven in the rooms and fridge are upon request. Restaurants are all over anyway. They have given us complimentary...

Picked this hotel purely for its location and ease to everything, I'm not one to pick a hotel on its facilities when going on a city break like NY you pick for its location and this was spot on, room was small but again what do you expect for a NY hotel?

We were pleasantly surprised when we stayed here in November, we had a very comfortable and clean room. Four of us stayed in a room that faced the river. Like most places near Times Square, there was a little noise, nothing that kept any of us awake. I loved the view, down to the river and all the buildings in...

I had a terrible experience in Hotel Pensylvania NY, however we transfered into a premium room in the Gallivant, loved the room, very modern and nice. Had usb ports for chargers which was very helpful, very spacious. Lovely view from room, bed very comfortable. Only thing that could be better is shower pressure, water came out very faintly.

The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are updated, clean and very spacious. The area can tend to be a bit noisy at night with the hustle and bustle of the city since you are right in Times Square, but for the price, you can't beat the location. I would recommend this hotel.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
