Once you get past the unprepossessing lobby, the hotel is really excellent. We were upgraded to a junior suite, which was large, comfortable and well-appointed. It was bitterly cold so we ate in the hotel, choosing the bar's little plate menu over the Vlentine's Day special menu; each choice was delicious. Large, contemporary bar and restaurant (maybe showing a little wear on the cushions) and excellent service. Location, right on the corner of Times Square, can't be beat if you want to be in the middle of it all. Not cheap, but we weren't on a penny pinching trip. Worth every penny. Special mention to the concierge for fulfilling a couple special requests. As noted, the lobby is decidedly underwhelming although the staff was friendly and helpful. Otherwise, no complaints!
2 queen beds made this hotel perfect for our family of four. Located right on Times Square, the hotel held our bags after checkout while we went across the street to see a Broadway show.
Clean spacious rooms, good service, not great wi-fi
Impeccable service Immaculate rooms Excellent location between Times Square and Bryant Park Can't complain about anything.
Great place to stay. Very sheik and hip. Roof Top Bar is out of this world!!!
We came for the birth of my first grandchild.the hotel is very modern and sleek. Our room was large and well appointed with all of the modern technological conveniences. The mattress was very comfortable with high thread count linens. The bathroom was large and had more bath accessories than I have ever seen. I.e. Cuff links, tooth brush, paste, etc. I loved the large soaking tub. We never heard any outside noise even though this hotel is located in Times Square From the front desk to the doorman, the service was incredible. Leilani, one of the managers even gave us a gift for the new baby. I would highly recommend this hotel!
The renovation last year really upgraded this NYC classic. Now the interiors are just as lux as the classic facade. Great location in Times Square but quiet and tranquil retreat inside. Great service and really friendly staff. We enjoyed our girls weekend immensely. Avoid if you don't like fighting through crowds at Times Square.
The Knockerbocker was a very nice hotel with a great location. My only complaint was the day that we left, we stored our bags for a few hours. When we came back to pick them up, it took 20 minutes or so to get them. I had to catch a flight. The front desk was unapologetic about it. They just stood at the desk, while customers waited and were dissatisfied. They need to make sure they are staffed properly at a busy time, and if not, other staff should pitch in. It should be a group effort, because it makes the hotel better as a whole.
The staff was very helpful and very friendly!
My husband and I were traveling with our 2 adult children and their traveling companions, so we booked 3 rooms. All rooms were spacious and comfortable. Decor was trendy, with high end amenities. We loved the rooftop bar and had a great meal at the attached restaurant. Location was perfect. Overall, a great stay. Some of the furniture in the room was showing some wear. And the desk chair was the only chair in the room. Also, the closet was very small. Not enough space to hang our clothes and coats.
The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful.
Beautiful space with clean rooms and very good service. We only stayed one night but we look forward to returning.
Everything was perfect
Check in and out the staff were pleasant. Comfortable beds. Too focused on being trendy. Was advertised as a 4-5 star. More like a 3-4 star No coffee makers in room.
The decor and availability of room service as well as the location The hotel is very small and cramped. The floor we stayed on had a horrible fried food odor that was overwhelming every day of our stay. I did not feel that the overall quality was representative of a 5-star hotel.
The Chatwal fires on all cylinders. Every need is attended to. Expensive, but worthwhile. The bathroom was amazing, but using the shower at full pressure actually caused a bit of a flood. The climate and lighting control is handled by a single touch-screen unit, but its operation is a little complicated. Light-switches shouldn't be confusing.
Rooms were large compared to many other hotels in New York.
Flexible with checkout, very helpful staff. For the price, breakfast and internet should be included.
Location was awesome, and we were upgraded to a deluxe room with sweet views. Definitely worth it. Parking was confusion as address given online did not match where to valet park, which was awful because traffic around Time Square is insane sometimes.
Hotel was excellent - perfect location if you want to be in the middle of the action in NYC. Staff was courteous and extremely helpful. Room size was great, room was clean and comfortable. Excellent value!
the room makes me feel comfortable the staff is very nice i love staying at Hilton definitely coming back !
the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was very very clean and comfortable . the view was great as well. there wasn't one thing id complain about.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Easy access to elevators to rooms. Staff was very courteous & accommodating. No problems.
Took the wife to NYC for a romantic getaway, and wanted to stay in the Times Square area to be close to theaters. This property was perfect for us! Clean, modern rooms with everything we needed, and all within a short walk to the heart of Times Square. we would stay here again in a heartbeat. On the check in website, I made request for highest floor possible with a great view away from the elevator. We ended up on the 29th floor, corner room at the end of the hall which was everything I asked for. At check in I also requested late check out and was allowed 2.5hours which was perfect for our departure to the airport. this Hilton and its staff were top notch. Thanks! Room was cool, had to crank the thermostat to 80 to get warm . This could have been due to havering a corner room with lots of windows. Housekeeping, unfortunately, turned the heat back to 67 each day so the room was cool'ish when we got back each evening. Not a huge concern.
Good value for being in the middle of Manhattan.
They don't give you any options or choices for early check in.
Location, staff friendliness, room standards
good service and central position for sightseeing and shopping. we waited 20 minutes for somebody to help us with our cases from the 42nd floor to a waiting taxi and nobody arrived. we had to manage 4 large cases on our own.to the waiting taxi..
The service was excellent
Great location!! The hotel was very clean and the staff was really nice and helpful.
We liked that we could walk to the Majestic to see The Phantom and the feel that we were in the middle of the city. We were on the 45th floor and we hardly got any sleep. Our neighbors were partying from 11:00 pm-2:00am. Lots of slamming doors and arguing. It was horrible and when I finally called at 2:00 am the person at the desk made it feel like it was my fault for not calling earlier. You need to have security making rounds to insure a pleasant stay for your guests. Plus, it was our 10th anniversary!!!!!
location cleanliness and front desk staff
The hotel was very nice, verrry expensive. Seconds away from the heart of time square. Great experience!! Cost of items were outrageous, but that is probably just New York, Time Square.
i loved the location
noice from the peopel who clen the rooms
Great Location Friendly staff Facilities in the room could be improved e.g. there were no tea/coffee/kettle facilities, no fridge & drinks bar, no robes in the room. The hotel was impersonal, particularly on the ground floor and somewhat tired-looking for a 4 star hotel
Well placed,we went a lot to the theatre, conciers and the theather -people were extremly helpful and nice Nothing
Friendly and helpful staff. Good location. Comfortable bed and nice room. Check-in process was a nightmare. It took more than one hour until my reservation was finally found and confirmed.
Great location, clean room, staff was very accomodating
Great location, excellent staff combined with a good restaurant and good decor Wifi Should be free
The room was large for new york and very nice. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding!! It includes juice, coffee and a basket of bread and pastries. The best pancakes are at Sofitel. It is a short walk to the theatre. No complaints, I will definitely go back to Sofitel
Location and cleaniness the other guests where a bit rude
The room was overall inviting and the bed and pillows especially comfortable. Having to pay an extra fee for internet access, it should be a part of the cost of the room.
The location is PERFECT! Its close to everything yet away from noise and traffic! 5th ave is half a bloch away and time square is a bloch and a half. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. the staff is extreamly warm and accomodating. It is the hotel to stay on if your looking for luxury yet the comfort and warth of your home!
The location was perfect for theatre and shopping and catching the subway. The room was a little small. We had two twin beds and really not much of a view. Concierge (one of 3) was not particularly helpful. Very minimal Christmas decorations in lobby, other hotels much more festive.
This was our first trip to nyc and chose Sofitel by recommendation as well as location and reputation. It was within walking distance to many attractions as well as excellent places to eat. We felt safe yet away from the main hustle and bustle. The beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was top class. Thankyou!
The staff excellent, location perfect comfort first class. Tea & coffee making facilities should be available in the room.
The location Not the standart I expected, room to small, air conditioning to noise.
Location is good, staff very helpfull. Small size of bedrom and view hotel in construcion.
staff is very kind it is for sure no 5 star hotel. Spa area is nice but 5 chairs at the pool are by far too less for such hotel. Dinner and breakfast was also not 5 star.
The staff is extremely friendly, helpful. They always have a smile – a real, genuine one - on their face. Especially Eric who is concierge of the cassa goes out of his way to make sure you have anything you may need. The beds are extremely comfortable and rooms are nice and quiet – surprising for midtown Manhattan.No need to search anather otel in Times square.
It was a good experience. The location of the hotel is the best. You are in the middle of everything. The staff was nice and friendly The breakfast options are really very limited but it was ok. The wardrobe space need to get bigger. It can hardly fit for one nevertheless two especially in winter.
Good Location room too small
The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly. Perfect location and very clean and nice rooms...
Staff was courteous and friendly. Room and bath were clean. Goodies were on the nightstand every evening when the bed was turned down. We walked and took the subway to where we wanted to go. All directions were precise. Subway was 2 blocks We would stay here again.
The staff at the front desk was very friendly.
Clean, elegant rooms, comfortable bed, great shower. Hallway noise came through the door easily.
Decor was great, rooms were clean and mini bar was stocked with great snacks at reasonable prices ($2 per soda). Rooms were small but this isn't unheard of for Manhattan.
I'm not one to write travel reviews but I had such an incredible experience here I felt the need to share! Came here for a staycation (roommates, amirite?) slash birthday celebration and our choice could't have been more perfect. In a word, this spot is snazzy. The decor, fixtures and furnishings are reminiscent of the Prohibition/speakeasy era with a modern, chic twist. Just by standing in the lobby you instantly feel a little more immersed in something cool and vibrant. There is a palpable sense of imminent adventure and intrigue here, definitely a boon to kick off your New York City escapade. Inspiration is abundant here! The rooms are immaculately clean, chic and quiet. Bed is ridiculously comfortable and also features hidden storage drawers, so be sure to check under the huge fluffy down comforters they're topped with! There truly aren't enough adjectives to describe just how accommodating and incredible the staff here is. So friendly! Everyone here is a paragon of guest services for competing establishments to emulate. If you're looking for a stylish, urbane backdrop with ubercool yet welcoming vibe to your Gotham City foray, book with confidence at Archer, it is truly a stay to remember! Check out is at 11, not 12. Only downside to this hotel, otherwise it is magnificent.
The staff was very friendly and professional. The even remembered us the next day. Evan was wonderful, positive and up beat. Everyone was very helpful, even moved us when our AC was malfunctioning. Rooms were kind of small but then we were in the a limited amount of space as far as the city was concerned.
Beautiful property, well thought out rooms, great amenities and attention to detail. They need to iron out a lot of issues - the hotel is super new so they likely will. Room service is expensive, not very good & delivered in cheap take out containers. Very slow internet - borderline unusable if you're a business traveler. Staff nice and polite but very impersonal,
Great room. Great location. Clean and comfortable. No water the next morning with no credits or discounts offered.
Deluxe digs for modest dimes
On line it said bathrobes but there are none.
Staff very friendly. good location. Bed was very uncomfortable
Large comfortable room quiet great bathroom and shower great shutters
It was fine... Nothing I would say it was a 4 star. Staff was very friendly and courteous. The cookie at night was good! Room was TINY! Barely enough room for the bed.... And it was only a full bed. Everything was old. Wallpaper was dis colored and peeling, bathroom tile had the corners that looked dirty but were just so old the tiles were worn. The bed was more of a futon than a real mattress.
When I arrived, I was given a free upgrade to a queen size room. I was prepared, given the other reviews, for a pretty small room, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was more than enough room for just myself, and the bathroom was spacious as well. I also really liked the toiletries (they smelled so good!) and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Turning the shower to "high pressure" resulted in a very wet bathroom floor. I hadn't expected the lip between the shower and the bathroom to be so low! Additionally, I left my bag at the front desk the day I checked out, and I guess someone else's bag leaked something on mine? Or it's stored in the same space as they keep extra toiletries. The stain it left smelled a lot like the toiletries they give out. Unfortunately, I didn't notice it until I got home.
Super helpful staff Rooms not really set for business -- few plugs, no coffeemaker
Fantastic staff that went above and beyond to meet our needs. Turn town service was nice (cookies in the room!). The room was very small, but functional. There was a party going on down the hall that was very loud due to the thin walls. Took 2 hours from the first threat to kick the people out at 3am.
Only 1 window in room and it opened to a brick wall. Unable to see daylight. Room was like staying in. Large closet.
Clean, quiet, friendly, accessible to subways and attractions.
Conveniently located,comfortable,pleasant stuff.
Location was excellent. I thought my room was way too small. I was in one of the 02 rooms and it was tiny. never stay in any of the rooms that end with 02. There was a gentleman in the library when I was there speaking on the cell phone complaining that his closet at home was bigger than his room. I asked to change out of my room and they said they were sold out. I will never stay at this hotel again unless I am shown the size of the room first. Otherwise, it was clean, good location and good staff.
Cosy and comfortable The ventilation in the toilet is noisy.
Location, Location, Location! Great mid-town location, steps away from shops, theaters and landmarks. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room although very small bathroom. Great restaurant! Small bathroom.
Convenient mid town location. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Wifi service. Pleasant and helpful staff. Tiny room with small window looking directly into a brick wall 6 feet away! The room temp was 76 degrees and COULD NOT BE REGULATED. The maintenance engineer came to the room and confirmed the high temp but said there was no way to reduce the high dry heat.
Everything... great hotel, great location!
I liked the staff, excellent service and the confort of the bed. The room was really small, for the money spent, I did not expect that.
Delightful. Very kind staff, lovely room. Very good value at just over $200 Room seemed a bit humid
Accomodations and staff were wonderful. Location is convenient and in an extremely staff area.
Convenient Location It was expensive for what was available
Stayed at this hotel with my mother and 2 sisters on a shopping trip to NY - had a fantastic stay and appreciated the courtesy, help and hospitality shown to us, especially the consideration shown to my Mom - we had a wonderful and memorable trip and would highly recommend your hotel to others.
it was very quiet,good breakfast,staff was ready to help,position in the city,very clean hotel we had reservation in the Strand,but hotel is not finished yet,no notice in internet,not at the adress,so we had to call and faund the sister hotel named South park hotel
Great location for all city shopping and attractions, staff friendly and helpful. Nice clean room and comfy bed.
Actually, we were moved to the Park South Location because the Strand was not finished renovations yet. No parking, and when we parked in the recommended lot 2 blocks away, we did not get any discount.
Excellent staff, always attentive and friendly.
The Strand is a great new hotel, in great zone of nyc
the friendly and helpful staff and a very central location we liked it all
Brilliant location. Value given breakfast was included into price. Very friendly and efficient service. Clean and modern rooms. iPod charger in the room. The air conditioning was a little bit noisy. The rooms were a bit warm at night.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel restaurant was not open and we were not told that prior to our arrival. There was no room service, no refrigerator in room and no mini bar. This was quite inconvenient.
The proffesional service, the location, the nice bed and the breakfast that was included.
The complimentary continental breakfast and happy hour and the location is why I will return. The hotel is a 1/2 block from Times Square and a block away from many Broadway theaters. Rooms were nice and my very picky mother even approved! Friendly staff. Not much of a family hotel. Rooms only have one queen size bed each. No double beds are available, and there is not enough room for a cot. A bit of mildew was visible in shower. Not enough to turn me away, but a little power cleaning may be helpful.
Price and location
The location and the clear view from our room of the ball in time square. The hotel also has a small room were complimentary wine and finger foods are offered. I believe there is an additional charge however for us it was complementary. There was no consistency in the overall friendliness of the staff. The hotel is rated at 4 1/2 stars and I did not have a remote control in my room, when I ask for one they simply told me they were out. They offered a 1PM check out as compensation.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location location location It was in no way a 4.5 star hotel. I feel i was cheated by calling this as a 4.5 star, in no ways this could have been more than a 2 star in my view. Its definitely not worth the price paid for it and the staffs are very rude at the reception.
Great hotel. Amazing location. Staff was very friendly and rooms were clean and comfortable.
4.5 stars misleading. We were told to walk through several under construction doors down the street to a small, unimpressive lobby with Rude staff who made us wait several minutes while they talked badly about other guests.
People, hh, breakfast No
Location I was there at 10:/30, I check in with credit at that time since I would not be back until after 6:00. I was asked what type of bed preference so I requested 2 beds. When I returned they gave me one size for two adults. My adult son and I.
The Premier is without question the BEST hotel stay we've had in NY. Beautifully designed and maintained. Rooms are spacious. The absolutely RIDICULOUS 1 hour and 45 minute wait for our car.
Fantastic location, extremely helpful staff. Best hotel I have ever tried when in New York. Absolutely would come back. Nothing.
Hotel although not right in time square where I have stayed before it was only steps away and very close and within walking distance (of course I like to walk)to everything I was going to the city for on this trip I would have liked a higher floor but room was nice and I didn't like that every time you got in the elevator you had to use your key card before you could press the floor button they should have set it up to use the key card to get on elevator
