On the way here we couldn't believe we were actually going to New York! One of the most famous cities in the world!

Historical Traveler Reviews Ameritania Hotel New York City
First off the Hotel was NOTHING like what the Expedia.com review claimed. The lobby was nice, but the room was horrible. TINY (Even by NY standards), smelly, and noisy. It was barely lit, gloomy, had a beat up old air conditioner, and the wallpaper was peeling at all of the seams. I had requested a queen bed, but when we checked in we were given a double. A chat with the clerk at the desk and we were informed that because we booked through Expedia, a queen was requested, but not guaranteed. After scanning my itinerary I found the small print which said so. How cute. Fine, we'll keep the stinky, stuffy cramped double-bed room. Well, to my surprise, when we tried to sleep that night, we got to listen to the elevator all night. It was like a sound effect of someone dragging furniture around on the floor right above ALL NIGHT. Well, after a non-existant night of sleep, I squeezed into the closet sized bathroom, and climbed over the toilet to get into the shower the next morning. Oh joy, a light drizzle of water coming out of the showerhead! How invigorating! At least the dribbling shower was hot...The only positive thing I can say about the room. The shower curtain did not fit the shower correctly, so the closet sized bathroom floor flooded during every shower. The second night was more of the same, but just to top things off, the air conditioner started sounding like a blender filled with rocks. (Since the windows didn't open at all, the only way to get any fresh air into the musty room was with the air conditioner.) NOT the renovated art-deco the Expedia review claimed.Done with Ameritania, and done with Expedia.
Ameritania is hip and a great value
I just popped off to NYC with a couple of girlfriends for the weekend and decided to stay at the Ameritania because of its central location (right next to the Ed Sullivan theater). Our large-ish room, with two double beds, immense closet and well-appointed bathroom were ideal. The decor was modern, yet managed to be cozy, too. We enjoyed the Twist Lounge in the lobby as a good place to hit before stepping out. The free bagel/coffee/juice breakfasts in the morning were also a nice touch. We would definitely consider staying there again, if we don't check out one of their sister properties, the Moderne or the Bentley. Perhaps the naysayers stayed prior to the renovation? Check it out!
Very small and basic but it did the job!
well the best thing about this hotel is its ideal location..right in the heart of times square, next to the letterman show. we chose this hotel because of the reasonable price and because it looked modern and clean. there were 4 of us in our room with 2 double beds, but it is true what they say...the rooms were tiny, with not much room to manouver. reception area is very modern, with a cosy fireside bar. However the rooms were not modern and as i say very small. i would probably not go back to this hotel as the room was just far too small, but we had a great time in new york anyway.
Shoe box room
The Hotel was nice but the room was so small it was hard to walk around. And the shower only had half a door so when you take a shower the bathroom gets flooded. Also the bathroom had no fan so I felt faint after a hot shower. Great location but crappy room.
My sister and I received good reviews from persons who had stayed at the Ameritania in NYC.
Worst hotel in NYC
My husband and my two children stayed at the Ameritania on 12/6/02. The hotel staff were rude and had no idea what customer service meant. They gave a room with a king size bed and could not get a roll away bed for my husband to sleep in. We could not all fit in the bed. They didn't care and said they did not have to guarentee anything because I booked the hotel through the internet, expedia.com..it was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. never again. we asked for our money back and no one has responded. we will be writing letters.
We have stayed at the Ameritania Hotel twice. The first time was absolutely awful. The room was very small, no amenities and the window didn't even shut all the way! The second time (we went a second time b/c it was on the Thanksgiving parade route), the room was on a higher floor and was a bigger, much nicer room. Still, it would be nice to have some comfortable chairs in the room. Both times the noise was unbearable. I have lived in Manhattan, so I am accustomed to the usual noises that go on. However, this was beyond anything acceptable for a hotel. There seemed to be a nightclub or concert hall very close to the hotel. We could actually feel the bass while we were lying in bed! This is an ok hotel if you want to be close to Times Square and you are going to be partying all night. Otherwise, find something a little more comfortable.
Glitzy cover, bad story
The purportedly all-renovated hotel got a facelift in the lobby, the pictures of rooms looked elegant, but the 'real' rooms we got were musty, cramped and extremely noisy. They evidently forgot to change the 100-year-old windows. Even with a room change from the noisy Broadway side on Friday night to the equally noisy street side on Saturday night, the noise was unbearable. We were there for the Revlon run, and got very little sleep, no thanks to Ameritana.
Ameritania Hotel - great place, we loved it
We loved staying at the Ameritania. We had a medium-sized room with a walk-in closet and marble bathroom. Plus you walk outside and you're at the tip of Times Square, lots of bistros etc nearby. And Letterman if you like.
Worse hotel in new york
outside and lobby look alright but rooms are boxes, dirty, grubby decor and furnishings out of the ark.had to change first room because room dirty with loose floor boards.disappointing and thankfully only stayed a couple of days.
