Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Manhattan New York City
After researching extensively on the net, I selected the Comfort Inn based on reviews, location and they are one of a very few who offer a continental breakfast included in their rate. This hotel was just a 1/2 block off of Times Square - yet very quiet and I especially liked the fact that it was a small hotel. Unlike the larger hotels, you walk in the small lobby and the elevator is right there, with no waiting and you don't have to walk 2 blocks just to get to your room. The rooms were VERY clean, bathrooms quite sizable for NYC standards - again very clean and even the marble floors were heated! While we were there we checked out the Westin because that was our second choice and trust me - we made the right decision. The Westin is in a VERY congested area and getting to your room can be a production - not very user friendly.
We will definitely stay at this hotel again. Highly recommend using the Grayline Tour/Hop on Hop Off bus tour if this is your first visit to NYC.
Cheap, Cheerful and Convenient
Have just returned from a week in New York, staying at the Comfort Inn.
We chose the hotel on the strength of previous postings, and can agree with most of that which has been said before. The location is the best, especially if it is your first visit to the city - plently to do within walking distance until you are ready to venture further. Hotel accommodation is pretty basic and decor generally tired, but for the price, there's no complaints. The breakfast is good and a great way to start the day and meet fellow guests to exchange ideas, tips, etc.
Staff all very helpful, and a special mention to Alex, who is a wonderful source of local knowledge and advice - take the time to ask him, and he'll be pleased to be of help. I would certainly return.
We stayed here Oct 2nd & 3rd and were extremely pleased with the value.
We had a AAA rate initially but had it lowered upon arrival to an Amtrak rate per our request. Our room was small but clean and comfortable with two double beds, minifridge, microwave, and a charming little bathroom. Others have complained about the small, slow elevators; they are small, but big enough, and we never waited for more than 30 seconds for one to arrive. The breakfast is plain (bagels, donuts), but is certainly adequate. The location is superb!! We walked from Penn Station on arrival, and the cab fare back to Penn was $2.90!
The Empire State Building is literally around the corner. Because 35th Street is predominantly a delivery street, we were worried about noise.
NOT a problem! Slept like babies! Our 12th story view included the Chrysler Building. I definitely recommend!
After reading the reviews for this hotel, I decided to book. After 3 days and little things adding up from dirty bedding, dirty ceilings, no lights in closet, twice charged at restaurant and a lack of customer service, the only thing that we really enjoyed was the very good central location. It looks like there are some areas that need improvement.
Good rates, decent rooms for the price, centrally located near Times Square, Madison Square Garden, and Empire State Building. My only COMPLAINT was the elevators not working half the time during my stay July 2003, and the fact that they wereonly (2) very very small elevators and the 1967 HIDEOUS CARPET that followed you from floor to floor Except the lobby which was remodeled.
Comfort Inn - Great Choice
Stayed here in January 2003, have stayed once before, and have already booked the next trip for January 2004. Having stayed here I would not dream of booking anywhere else. The hotel is in a great location and even if it is not one of the grandest hotels in New York the staff there are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them.
Stayed July 1-5, 2003, and was quite pleased with this hotel. Little to say bad, perhaps the mattress could have been softer, but little else.
Good staff, very clean, quiet, and only $119 a night, an excellent bargain . Location excellent at any price! Save your money and enjoy times square. Try Deli-Plus up the street for good food as well, another excellent bargain.
Spent 5 days at the Comfort Inn Manhattan. Central location within walking distance of Times Square & Broadway was excellent. Rooms very comfortable & quiet. Our party was 2 women (the moms) & 3 teen boys in 2 adjoining rooms. That was a good set up. Loved the convenience of the continental breakfast. Cannot say enough about the desk clerk Alex. He gave us tips on sightseeing tours, etc., that really got us off on the right foot to explore the city as first-timers. If we ever get to NYC again, will plan to stay at the same place. Price was right!
I have stayed at this property 5-6 times over the last 2 years. The staff is courteous and many remember me on each visit. It;s amazing what hosekeeping will do extra for a minimal tip! The rooms are typical Comfort Inn, but for New York are a steal. This is a great hotel to use as a home base when in the city on business. I would probably select another more upscale property when traveling w/my family. But, hey, for the money it is a best buy! Safe, secure, clean, nice size rooms and most definitely convenient. The Hotel Metro across the street has a great bar/rest that serves great food.
Great location; saved a bundle
Stayed at the Comfort Inn Manhattan for 3 nights in December '02. It was clean, quiet, and the room was larger than I expected. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Location is wonderful. This block of 35th Street is primarily delivery entrances to 34th St stores, with a few shops & restaurants. It's a half block to a subway station; a $2-3 cab ride to Times Square, and around the corner from the Empire State Bldg. The only negative I can think of was that the free continental breakfast didn't have much to offer, and featured the world's slowest toaster.

... day and after a breakfast that reminded us both of a scene from Fawlty Towers and had us both in stitches. The hostess was certainly a lady not to be reckoned with and was very upset by anyone coming in and trying to sit at a table of their choice and not hers. We think they were short of staff and the chef took three goes to get us two coffees that we ordered. ...
