Hudson River Hotel
Ranked #377 of 468 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed 15 January 2012

The location is good, within walking distance of Times Square and even Central Park (if you don't mind a little hike). Two twin beds took up most of the floor space but I think that is normal for this area. The staff were friendly and helpful.

We thank you for visiting our great city and staying with us. We are glad that you were able to walk around the city and see the sights. We are also walking distance to the Intrepid Aircraft Carrier Museum, and walking distance to Chelsea piers (if you don’t mind walking a bit). If not then we are less than 2 blocks away from the New York Transit system, and just blocks away from Penn Station and Port Authority. We welcome you back to staying with us in the future and hope you get to enjoy seeing some of the other places New York has to offer. Thanks again.

As anyone trying to visit NYC knows, hotels in Manhattan are very expensive. Unless you are traveling with a group of friends, or if you don’t mind staying in hostels and/or having shared bathrooms, a good chunk of your travel budget will be spent in your accommodations.

For the price I paid, $110 per night, the Comfort Inn Convention Center was a great bargain that allowed me to have additional funds to enjoy some of the city’s superb restaurants and a couple of Broadway shows.

Room:
Similarly, to all the other NYC hotels I have stayed in the past, the room is small. This is common and to be expected. If a large room is one of your requirements, you might want to try staying in Brooklyn or Long Island City. However, you must also take the subway fare into consideration if you decide to stay outside of Manhattan.

The room was appropriate and comfortable. It was cleaned every day, and due to the location of the hotel, it was quiet at night. I believe this is the first time I have stayed in a Manhattan hotel in which I could not hear the traffic below.

The hotel provides free wifi in the room, which was useful for making reservations and getting directions.

Breakfast:
This hotel offers a complimentary breakfast. It is not a huge buffet, but again, I thought it was appropriate for a budget hotel. There were juices, yogurt, whole fruit (banana, apples, and oranges), boiled eggs, bread, English muffin, batter for making waffles, coffee, instant oatmeal, cooked sausage, and some sort of frittata. Of the three nights I stayed there, the breakfast area was only overly crowded in one of the days – the space is tiny, but again it was not a surprise to us. For this reason, we just grabbed some bananas and yogurt and went on our merry way.

Location:
For folks who are not familiar with NYC, the location may look a little scary and out of the way, but it was only about two blocks from the nearest metro entrance at 8th and 35st. The hotel location is also an easy walk to Times Square and the Theater District. We even walked all the way to 62th street to catch a movie at the Lincoln Plaza Cinemas. The hotel is also within walking distance to Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, and several of the interstate bus stops (Bolt, Megabus, etc…).

Returning to the hotel at night was not a problem, but as in any large city, you need to be alert and aware of your surroundings.

Overall, I think this is a good hotel if you want to stay in Manhattan, have your own bathroom and you are budget conscious and street savvy. If you need luxury accommodations, large rooms, and to be in the middle of Times Square, you should prepare your pockets and look somewhere else. I certainly plan to stay in this hotel again: It is a clean and quiet place to rest your head in the city that never sleeps.

Thank you for your detailed review of our hotel. We thank you for staying with us. We are located very closely to a lot of attractions here in midtown NY. We are just blocks away from Madison Square Garden, The Javitz Center, Port Authority and just blocks away from Times Square.
We are glad you enjoyed our free hot breakfast which is served every morning, and we also offer coffee throughout the day. The area we are in does get quiet at night which does help those guest looking for a quiet night’s sleep.
We do hope that when you visit New York again that you come back to stay with us, and if you decide to drive in we do offer discounted parking at one of our 3 garages located just a block from our hotel. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.

Stayed here for the walk able distance to Javits Convention.. the room is VERY small and I was a little worried to stay here but the room was clean and daily housekeeping. No bedbugs!!!!!! I checked right when i got to the room... decent breakfast... free internet... free hbo... friendly and helpful staff... It is about 2-3 blocks from 34st Macys... Penn Station.. Madison Square Garden...
Overall, it is a decent hotel but I'd not stay there again unless I need to go to the Javits Convention. Oh and there is a gas station on the corner of 36 where all the taxi fills up so getting a cab was very easy!

We thank you for your recent stay with us, and we are glad you found it convenient to getting around. We are very close to Penn Station, MSG, Port Authority and less than two blocks from the Javitz Center. Our rooms are comparable to most of the other hotels in our area and for our price range. We do hope you decide to stay with us again in the future and we appreciate your business.

Stayed here for 3 nights and arrived with mixed expectations after reading the reviews here. Location is not the nicest at very busy corner right next to busy tunnel exit, but still very central and close to Penn station and within walking distance of times square & good restaurants. Room was small and needs to be modernised, but TV and free internet was working well. Staff at reception was great, friendly and very helpful. So all in all a good stay for people on budgets who don't care about standard of rooms, but would not recommend for a couple looking for a romantic place to stay.
