    Historical Traveler Reviews Amsterdam Court Hotel New York City

    Manager Lily ruined my vacation


    I was SO disappointed with my room. It was the size of a closet for what I rent an ocean view condo for in Hawaii every year. That was not even the main problem. I could deal with that but we went to speak to the manager,Lily, about an upgrade She had a TERRIBLE attitude and practically laughed in my face. I was so upset that she could talk that way to me without even letting me speak first!! I would recommend that anyone who's going to New York looking for a good time- stay as far away from this hotel as possible.



    Hard to find. 2nd floor hallway smelled like urine. Room was small, smelled like smoke, but very clean. Nice bathroom but poor lighting for make-up. Had to call for iron & board. But, great location for Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center! Staff was pleasant.

    Great place for the money


    We decided to visit New York City at the last minute. Everyone from Carlos at the reservation center to Regina at the front desk was wonderful! We got a nice room at a great price. The location was very close to Times Square and Central Park-not too far to walk back from those late nights of sight-seeing. We'll stay here again!

    Great Times Square Hotel


    The Amsterdam is a great place to stay when you want to be where the action is. Its moderately priced hotel with all the amenities you could need. For two travelers new to the city, we didn't expect a pool, or a fitness center because we'd be out exploring the city. The staff was very curtious, friendly and addressed our requests immediately. The hotel was a excellent surprise for our expectations. We'd highly recommend it!! :)

    Nice hotel


    The Amsterdam court was a great hotel. The price was right and it was located in a great area. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated, the only problem I found with the room was it was too small.

    But that's to be expected for NYC. The staff was very nice and I would definitely go back again.

    Have always enjoy it


    My parterner and I are both Pursers for major international airlines. We stay in a majority or hotels world wide. When given the opportunity we consistantly stay at the Amsterdam Court. It is personable, staff is very nice, and the location is great. We've never had a bad experience her in all the times (6 so far) we stayed here. We had to stay at the NY Hilton once and missed the comfort of the AMS Court. It's the best value in town. I would always choose staying here, as would my partner

    Hate the amsterdam


    This hotel is an absolute waste of time. I had paid for another, got transferred here from another. The room WAS small, however, in the middle of manhattan I would expect that. I stayed 3 nights. The first night, the toilet kept running. I told the desk about it in the morning. Guess what - the next night, the toilet kept running. Ah, but sorry - there are no engineering people here to ensure you a good night's sleep - you'll have to turn off the tap, or something. Breakfast? I don't know whether you would call a bagel & coffee breakfast, but I'd personally prefer you discount my rate, and let me find my own breakfast...Forget this "hotel" - it's more like a Faulty towers B&B



    Room was very small. Decent price for location. Ammenities were ok. Staff acknowledged us.

    Stay late March 2003


    After reading the reviews for the Amsterdam Court we were rather worried at what we would find but I am pleased to say that the hotel was fine for the money. Room was small, but I understand that is normal for NY, clean sheets and towels every day with the typical NY scene outside the window. A fire escape and another building! Quite liked that though. Whatever you do, do not touch the radiator or you will have to claim on your insurance for first degree burns. Although they say 24 hour tea and coffee - if you wake before breakfast and want a cuppa, hard luck. Staff were typical American - had an attitude. Hotel is rather tatty now and the standard of the revamp was not very good in the first place but overall not a bad place to stay. Location was great.

    Good Deal in Times Square


    We needed a room for one night to visit with friends in transit from overseas. They were booked at the Marriott Marquis which was full and listing $289 (!) for one night on Orbitz. I searched a little harder and came up with this hotel (part of the Utell chain), 4 blocks from the Mariott and $105 for the night excluding taxes.

    They list themselves as a boutique hotel due to the building architecture and chi-chi decor which is nice enough, but in a year or so the place is going to look pretty run down based on the wear & tear I observed and the mostly-cosmetic nature of their recent refurb. All in all a great bargain for the location, clean and nothing you'd be embarrased to be seen in.

Then he gave us 15 min to go take a run thru the building (and to cement the fact that we would be coming back after the tour ended). Lots of neat shops inside. The area is also home to a lot of tech companies (Google owns a whole block there)...YouTube has offices there. Also home to Food Network - so ...

Anyway, we finished watching the dancers and headed into the ticket shop where we managed to get tickets to ...

I would find out later that construction was being done on a bridge in Lower Manhattan that day and taxis had to use a tunnel to get to the Cruise Port. The tunnel had a toll of 14.00 dollars and of course the taxis did not want to pay this therefore they never came. As we stood in the slow moving lineup, an employee of the ...

    ... world. But now with so many cities around the world with fantastic skylines and technologies and discoveries happening else where, New York is no longer the state of the art. The world is moving so fast and quickly that it needs to completely do a change over to catch up, that's my radical opinion. Starting with the subway!! It is however one of the places that leaders from all over the world congregate for conferences and it just happened to be the climate change ...
