Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Hospitality House New York City
Great for families
We stayed for three nights in February 2005 and found the location to be excellent. The apartment was very spacious and warm. The breakfast provided was good with fresh fruit, cereal and muffins and fresh coffee. It was very relaxing not having to get dressed and visit the nearest diner for breakfast. After looking at dozens of other hotel rooms that would accommodate three generations of one family, I was really pleased to find this one. The two bedroomed apartment was excellent value for money and I would highly recommend it.
What can we say
Great location, excellent facilities,really friendly staff. Tea, coffee, muffins,jam and fresh fruit replenished dailey. Very clean, massive beds and more towels in the bathroom than you could possibly use. Although the weather was sub zero the rooms were warm and cosy. Desk clerk arranged car back to JFK at great rates and let us leave luggage all day and use a spare apartment bathroom for showers before we left. Would use them again and have reccomended them to all our friends.
Best deal in town
Stayed in a one bedroom apartment. Clean, comfortable, plenty of space for two people. Generally friendly service, great location. Just perfect. Look around for best price!
Spacious and in a great location
We stayed in 2 bedroom 'penthouse' apartment for 2 nights in December 2004.
The apartment was clean and spacious, with 2 bathrooms, kitchen etc.
The building is located on E 49th Street, within easy walking distance to loads of attractions - 5th Ave, Empire State Building, Central Park etc.
Best Western Hospitality House E. 49th Street
Just returned from 5 nights in a 2 bed apartment suite in this hotel. Excellent value for money, several websites quote an inclusive tax rate. Clean, excellent kitchen and comfortable bathroom, 2 great queen size bedrooms and sofa in lounge, excellent for groups or families travelling together.
Great Find for Families visiting NYC
I wanted to share this sweet little find in midtown Manhattan. As a family with 3 children (2 teens, 1 10 yr. old), it is always necessary for us to book two hotel rooms whenever we travel. After searching on the internet we stumbled upon the Best Western Hospitality House. The description sounded to be just what we wanted so we took a chance. Upon our arrival we were met by very friendly staff who helped us unload our van. The "room" was actually a two bedroom apartment with a full modern kitchen, large living room/dining area with a sofa bed, and two bedrooms - one with a king bed and 2 closets, the other with 2 twins. There is a large screen TV in the living room and 27" tv's in the bedrooms. The only downside is that there is 1 bathroom. The hotel provides daily breakfast to fix in your suite (english muffins, milk, cereal, juices and fresh fruit) - perfect if you don't want to eat breakfast out everyday. All of this for only $279/night (in August!!!).
Bottom line, great location (mid-town East), spacious suite, CLEAN, and friendly. Worth a look if you have a large family.
If you need space this is for you
We found the Hospitality House almost by accident as we needed to be close to the Waldorf Astoria for a week long convention - it is half a block away. January 2005 will be our third visit and as we travel throughout the year for business and pleasure we know the good from the bad. It is spacious and clean, well equipped, unlike a hotel room you can work and relax with separate bedroom and living room, and it will be your home from home. Try a higher floor to get away from ubiquitous street traffic noise, colleagues staying at the Waldorf were green with envy - only tell your best friends!
So good we visited it twice!!!!
I have stayed in this hotel twice and on both trips it was excellent. Suite type hotel with a very small modern lobby and staff that were second to none. This hotel would suit anyone who thinks location and accomodation is paramount over room service (which most people wont use anyway!)
We have always stayed in a two bedroomed suite but have seen a one bedroomed suit which was equally impressive.
The kitchens are well equiped and a supply of breakfast goods are provided. (Top tip when you need more provisions just ask as they are not automatically replenished).
I will use this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone
Great location-lots of space for NYC
My husband, 2 year old daughter, and I stayed at the Hospitality House while my husband attended a conference at the Waldorf (one block away). We have been to NYC many times and stayed in many hotels which were generally overpriced and undersized. The Hospitality House is not luxurious but it is a great deal for a lot of space. The apartment was clean and functional, particularly the kitchen. The location cannot be beat--you can walk to almost all of the major sights. We will definitely stay at the Hospitality House again, particulary when traveling with a little one.
We thought this would be a great place to stay in New York because of the suites, but we were wrong. This place is a dump. The "sofabed" was a broken futon and the twin beds in the second "bedroom" were squeaky trundle beds that took up the entire room. There was no closet in the second bedroom and I am fairly certain they must have salvaged the dresser in the room from someone's garbage on the street. The paint was peeling, the rugs were filthy and the place could really use a good cleaning. During the time we stayed there the housekeepers didn't come to change the sheets or bring fresh towels, we had to go get them ourselves. Noisy window air conditioning will prevent a good night sleep, if you can survive the hot, airless elevator ride to your room. This place was a real disappointment.

... at 'Appleby's' famous for their breakfast's.
We hopped on a tour bus after this which took us around all the main sights and even headed out to Brooklyn which was very quiet compared to Manhattan. At the end of the tour we got a boat to the Statue of Liberty which was amazing up close. Although we were out at peak times for the sun so we came back looking like typical British tourist with the classic T-shirt marks, not that I can speak for Andy who ...

The museum, directly underneath in the subterranean darkness of what would have been the basements, was well designed. You can walk the outline of the north tower, the concrete and steel squares that the famous metal struts sat in still there...because the 9/11 families insisted they ...
