Day 5 Friday, September 04, 2009
I Wake to the alarm at 6am quickly got dressed and stumbled bleary eyed out into 38th Street Got in the van started it up indicated to leave the curb , looked in the passenger side rear vision mirror and saw a NYC police tow truck waiting to pounce.
- Off east up 38th street
In New York angekommen hab ich um 12 Uhr dann Iris S. getroffen, sie war ein paar Tage in Philadelphia und nun wollten wir zusammen New York ansehen.
Es war sehr schoen sie wieder zu treffen, da wir uns auch in Deutschland schon lange nicht mehr gesehen hatten.
Da das Wetter so schoen war, sind wir erst mal zum Central Park gegangen …
Have had a hectic one and a half days rushing round New York like the penultimate tourist. I am in the Garment district, which for those TV junkies who watch Project Runway is where the Parson's School of Design is and to add to the world's most useless information apparently the world's largest button. This button is not only useless info but …

Historical Traveler Reviews Americana Inn New York City
Having stayed at the Vanderbilt YMCA for 2 nights,this place was like HEAVEN! Yes the rooms are small and are very basic, but they are clean and fresh.The bathroom was outside the door and there were no queues at any time.We found the staff to be polite and helpful and you cannot top the location being sandwiched between Macy's and Times Square.The front rooms are quite noisy from the 6th Avenue traffic,but after a heavy days shopping.....who cares! Will be staying here again for as long as the bargain rates apply.
This hotel was really good, cleaned everyday. The room was small but good enough. we stayed there for 55 bucks per night, which was really cheap for the hotel in the location. But there was a trouble. We made reservation from 13 to 20th, but the reservation was made with wrong days, 15 to 22th. We were sent to Carter Hotel, as so were other reviewers. The hotel locates in really good place but the facility was terrible and dirty. I recomend you to reconfirm the reservation you made before going.
A haven from the snow
Stayed for 6 nites in Feb 2003. Freezing weather and 24 inches of snow!
Staff helpful and friendly. Room small but suited me. Everything very clean and tidy. Was unsure of the 'shared' facilities (bathroom) but was pleasantly surprised - always kept clean. Great stay.
We stayed at the Americana Inn last weekend after booking it online. We were not too sure what to expect because of some of the reviews that we had read. I found it to be a very pleasent experience. We arrived early and were able to check in 2 hours early. The room was small but very clean and cozy. Overall the building was very clean, and we were supplied with a cute little basket arrangement of goodies. For the price, it cannot be beat. If we return to New York City we will definitley stay there again. It truly topped off our New York experience! Highly Reccommended!
Decent Price, Fantastic Location
We stayed at the Americana Inn in October of 2003 for about 6 nights.
We found the location to be ideal. About a 5 minute walk to Times Square and about 10 minutes to the Empire State Building, absolutely perfect. The rooms and share bathrooms were extremely clean. The only complaint we had about this hotel was that it was very noisy at times (from the outside traffic) but hey, thats New York, it added to the atmosphere! We would definitlely stay here again on our return trips to New York.
Good price, good location
I highly recommend the Americana Inn for a good priced place to stay in New York. It is kept very clean (as is the shared bathroom) and is ideal for someone who wants a decent roof over their head whilst on their travels. It is ideally located (central Manhattan) and is just a few blocks away from Times Square, Empire State Building, Macy*s and you can easily walk up to Central Park.
A good place to pass the night
Better than expected. Has good security on the door, the rooms are clean and renovated. The shared bathrooms are clean and new.
The front desk staff was nice and helpfull, we feared it might be rude as some reviews here say.
The only bad thing, and maybe because of the location of our room was the street noice, the window was not noice proof and also some German tourists outside our door where shouting all the night.
We were satisfied with what we payed...would stay there again if we need to stay in New York again.
Better than expected
Based on some other reviews, I was nervous about the size of the room - but it turned out to be better than I expected. While the room was smaller than other hotes, it reminded me of a small bedroom many people have at home. The basket arrangement for the towels was nice, but we didn't have wash cloths. We were able to get some from the staff as well as an iron. The hotel didn't have an ironing board. The bathrooms were ok and decent. The television could have worked a little better. I was pleased that the AC was working in our room. Overall, I was pleased and the location is excellent for the price you pay!
Roof over our heads--nothing better than that
The rooms were clean as were some of the shared bathrooms. There were no smoke detectors in the rooms (you could get portable ones at the front desk) and no way to open the windows!! The tub in the shared bathroom did not drain so I ended up taking a shower ankle-deep in disgusting water. There was a very nice desk person who did his best to explain things to me, however Sampson, the other desk staffer, was very rude--he even yelled at me and asked me why I was making such a big deal out of something. He didn't seem intent on making the customers happy. We got charged for having a third person in the room even though our online booking had given us a different price. The hotel quoted us $30/day for parking in the parking garage across the street and then we ended up paying $90 dollars even though we had only parked for 2 days. I would not stay here again and the rude desk staffer needs to learn about customer service.
Cosy hotel.......shame about the staff
Stayed here for a few nights in Jan 2002 sheltering from a frosty New York winter.
Although the rooms were wonderfully warm, but quite small, all but one of the 5 front desk staff that I encountered during my stay seemed nonchalant despite the fact that they'd screwed up my pre-paid booking!
The hotel is very clean, particularly the shared bathrooms and floors. Hotel is well secured with CCTV entry system and an elevator. Rooms at the back of the building were ultra quiet. The kitchenettes (with microwaves) were a bonus considering the low price of rooms.
Excellent location! Within a few minutes walking distance of Times Square, Central Park and close to Greenwich Village.
Value for money......most definitely!
Would I stay here again? Probably - providing they sort out the front desk, staff attitude problem.
