1/6. Left Iceland 8 hours ago, sitting in cab in traffic jam in downtown New York. Is this civilisation? And it's Sunday! Some Jewish festival day or other and 6th Avenue closed to traffic, result gridlock. Cabbie not that impressed when asked him to take us back to Iceland! Eventually got to our hotel.

We wish Tom and Theresa the best with the wedding that they are hosting at their place in a couple of weeks. It is such a lovely setting within the trees and forest, with all the trees finally blossoming after the long winter, on the day we left.

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Quarters Midtown New York City
Club Quarters rooms are small but comfortable
I stay at economical Club Quarters three times a year as a member of an organization whose Board of Directors meets in New York City. The rooms are small (especially the bathroom) and there is minimal storage area. However, since I don't spend much time in the room, except for sleeping, this is of no concern. There is a lounge on the first floor where I often gather with friends and a small exercise room in the basement. The hotel's location is terrific, near all transportation and Times Square, Rockerfeller Center, the Thater District are only a few blocks away. The staff is always accommodating. I highly recommend Club Quarters Midtown as long as you are not planning in-room entertaining.
Nice people. Horrible systems.
I travel a lot and thought I had experienced everything until this weekend at the Midtown Club Quarters. I checked in and told reception staff that I was being joined by a friend and her six year old grandson. Gave her name and asked for a rollaway bed and an iron. It took two days and repeated appeals to have them delivered. When my friend arrived at 7:30 p.m. the reception staff claimed they couldn't find her name on the reservation and wouldn't let her check in. I was at a conference. My friend finally reached me at 10:30 after wandering around midtown with her grandson for 3 hours! The staff at CC was not even apologetic! The next morning the person behind the desk checked and said that my friend's name was, indeed, on the reservation and that the previous night's workers "were new." The room was small -- even by Manhattan standards and the advertised wireless internet only works in the bathroom. They should change their name to "Cut Corners".
A true good value hotel
This hotel surpirsed me because of the quality of the rooms. I got an executive room which was small but very clean and elegant! It reminded me of a lesser luxurious Le Marquis... but still fabulous. There's flat screen TV, coffee maker and even books in the room... oh and there's free wi-fi internet too. There's no iron and board though provided in every room.
The hotel staffs were very helpful and friendly; they are courteous during phone conversations and they dont rush you. I wish I'd stayed in this hotel the moment I got to NY. This is my fourth hotel since I got to NY mid June and I am not changing hotels again for the remainder of my stay (4 wks more to go).
Excellent Stay @ Club Quarters
We just returned from NYC after a long weekend stay at Club Quarters midtown. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room as well as the wonderful location. We were 1.5 blocks from the subway and within walking distance of the Empire State Building as well as Central Park. We enjoyed our stay at Club Quarters immensely and would highly recommend the hotel again. I travel nonstop for work, and this hotel did not provide bells and whistles, but it was efficient, clean, convenient, and provided knowledgeable and professional staff to answer questions.
CQ- good value
Room was small as typical in NY, but clean & nice.
Flat screen television & CD player in room.
Staff left a little something to be desired, and the elevators were somewhat slow. But for the price, in midtown is was great!! I would stay here again anytime.
Not luxurious, but nice!
My daughter and I just came back from a 4-night stay at the Club Quarters midtown. Although it is not a luxury hotel, it was comfortable and very clean. The room was small, but fine for 2 people. The bathrooms and elevators were extremely small! I was a little disappointed that the bathroom did not have a tub, only a small shower. We were allowed to check in 3 hours early, and the staff was nice. The only problem we had was that the room was very cold and adjusting the thermostat did not help. Luckily, the bedding is plush and warm, so it was not a big problem. You may want to bring a travel iron because the only irons available were in a central closet on each floor, and at times they were all being used. We did find a very nice maid that went out of her way to find one for us. The location is great - very close to 5th Ave. shopping, Times Square/Broadway, and Rockefeller Center. The desk staff stored our luggage after checkout until it was time to leave for the airport. The Club Quarters is fine if you're looking for a reasonably priced, clean and quiet place to stay while in New York.
Not worth it!
I was very disappointed with my overnight stay at the Club Quarters Midtown Hotel. First of all, I had requested for a room with 2 twin beds, but recieved a room with 1 queen size bed. Second, we were told that our ice bucket could be found on the window sill, which it was not, AND we were required to go to the basement for ice, not a pretty sight. Third, our room was right across the elevator, so you can imagine noise throughout the night. Fourth, the carpet did not appear to be fully vacuumed as there were crumbs and peanuts on the floor.
Fifth, the bathroom floor was sticky with cracks in the tiles. I was so incredibly turned off that I didn't shower even with shower flip flops!
In any case, I do have to say that the hotel staff was friendly and as accommodating as possible. Overall, being the harsh critic that I am, if you're looking for a "decent" and "clean" hotel in the city, I would NOT recommend this establishment. I guess it's pretty clear that I never plan to stay here again. I hope the renovations pay off!
Our stay at Club Quarters
We just returned from our trip from NYC and our stay at the Club Quarters. I got this room through priceline and I was a little nervous because I had never heard of it. I turned to Trip Advisor to see what others had thought...the rooms are indeed pretty small but unless you plan on staying in the room a lot, it isn't that big of a deal. The bathrooms are small, the bathroom doors are strange with a gap in the middle of two little doors that open out....hard to explain. The coffee maker was in the bathroom right above the toilet literally a foot above. The bed was comfortable and there was not much noise(would have sworn we were on the floor all alone). The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great trip!
Tiny and cramped
we got a room for extremely cheap @ $80 but the room was soo tiny, i was literally shocked. what appeared to be tiny closet doors actually ended up to be the bathroom door. u could not fit more than two people standing in that bathroom. it reminded me of cheap dorm rooms
Great staff, small rooms!
I loved our stay at Club Quarters, but the rooms are probably the equivalent of a dorm room. The bed took most of the space in our room. I loved the staff, they were extremely helpful(we were tourists afterall). They have a fantastic restaurant on site and the decor is very casual contempory, I liked that. I would recommend staying there for it's staff and location, but only if you can stand a small room.
