Broadway at Times Square Hotel
Travel Blogs from New York City
We only had one night booked at the Edison so it was a mad scramble to find a room for two more nights. We chose The Roger Smith Hotel on 47th & Lexington Ave, so it was a walk directly across the island towards Grand Central Station. Now the weather was about to change drastically, it was drizzling and it was expected to worsen during the day …
Up at 8:40 this morning, got dressed then down for breakfast just after 9. I had a Vegemite bagel, yoghurt and a banana.
Back to my room to finish getting ready and plan the day then left to head out just after 10. Walked the block to Times Square and bought a ticket for the sightseeing bus. Got on board and there were some problems with …
Up at 4am this morning and got dressed and finished packing for my trip. Dylan took me to the airport and we got there a bit early so decided to check in and then go for a coffee and ended up at Gloria Jeans.
We headed back around 6 and the plane boarded at 6:20 ready for the 6:45 departure. It was a pretty empty flight and I had no one …
The final city in our amazing journey. And what a way to end, in the Big Apple. New York is everything it's talked up to be and then some. Most of the time New York is an amazing city. In December leading up to Christmas, it is magical. Each day brought us something new; something crazy; something we will never forget. We made our way to New York …

Historical Traveler Reviews Broadway at Times Square Hotel New York City
Location, location, location!
Just returned from a wonderful three day week-end in New York where we stayed with two other couples at the Comfort Inn Midtown.....it was a fabulous place! Though our room was quite small with a tiny bathroom (w/tiny shower), it was immaculate. The other two rooms were larger and also very clean and all were tastefully decorated. You can't beat the location....walking distance to Times Square, theaters, restaurants, etc....and the price was very reasonable. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. All of us would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's not luxury, but for the budget minded traveler, it's perfect.
This is everything you can ask for in a mid-town NYC hotel (assuming you do not want/need luxury): Clean, quiet, comfortable, and affordable. Just steps from the action of Times Square. I will make this hotel my first choice when traveling to NYC in the future.
I recently stayed at the Comfort Inn Midtown in New York.It's a wonderful place.........First off, I was going to stay at the Marriott Marquis on Time Square, but I saw the reviews on the Comfort Inn Midtown and it sounded wonderful.And Wonderful it was....it was very clean, VERY close to Time Square......maybe a short half of block or less.........and there you are right in Time Square.My room was a little small, but not bad...........we had a king bed with a nice size bathroom and a walk in closet.............The furnishings were all new and up to date........and very clean and nice. It was nicely decorated.............Believe me I am very very picky and do not like to stay in bad places and I very glad that I chose this hotel to stay in..............first off I saved a lot of money staying at this hotel instead of the Marriott.The Comfort Inn Midtown may not have all the glamour and glitz as the Marriott Marquis, but it's still very nice............and it's sooooooooooo close to everything.........there are several restraurants literally right across the street and next door to the Comfort Inn Midtown............chinese, steak and seafood, etc....I would stay there again in a heartbeat and suggest to anybody to stay there.............A great place for a great price.............you are literally right there on Time Square--just a few steps a way.............The staff was very nice and helpful..........I had a great stay and recommend it highly.take care
Best Value in NYC
We stayed at this hotel the night of September 20. This is a fantastic hotel for the budget minded traveler who wants to be in the center of the action. this hotel is half a block away from Times Square, TKTS and the Marriot Marquis...Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful. Save your money for the rest of your NYC trip and still have a great midtown place to stay.
The Comfort Inn Midtown is a great little hotel. Location was the best.
This hotel is located right in the middle of time square so you can walk to the theatre or even to central park & fifth ave. The room was small but it was pretty clean. We got a great rate using AAA (they do check your AAA card) average $100 per night. Parking is extra though, $20/day. i guess reasonable by NYC standards. I would stay here again.
Great Hotel, great location
Stayed here based on reviews from several sources..and would do so again, without hesitation.. The location is great, 1/2 block from Times Square, the room/bathroom was clean and adequate for 4. Kids stay free, and breakfast is complimentary.. Found the staff at the desk to be friendly and helpful. Parking is across the street and cheaper than most lots in New York. Had some difficulty with the in-room internet...but other than that, we enjoyed our stay in New York very much thanks to the Comfort Inn Midtown.. Would, (and have), recommend it to friends!
We arrived at the Comfort Inn Midtown just at the beginning of the blackout 8/14/03. We were allowed to check in our rooms (other hotels didn't allow their guests into their rooms) and were very thankful that we didn't have to sleep in the streets of Times Square like thousands of other tourists. The management was up all night trying to help everyone - they set up a battery so we had a light and radio in the lobby. The power came back 8:00 am the next morning, and we couldn't believe that they were serving continental breakfast! Although there was no hot water for another day & a half (due to the city not providing the hotels enough steam), the rooms were cleaned each day and clean towels (new ones) were provided.
Comfort Inn...Will stay here again!
After doing much research online, I finally settled for the Comfort Inn Midtown for my mother, 5 y/o daughter and I to stay on our 4 day NYC adventure. It was updated, clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The BEST part was the location. We were right in the heart of everywhere exciting in Times Square. It's exactly what I was looking for and I'm glad I took the time to research and find the perfect hotel. We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel itself so we didn't mind that the room was fairly small for what we were used to but the price was wonderful for the location ($107/night) which included a decent continental breakfast. I will definately stay here next time!
Comfort inn review
Comfort Inn was a great location and it was clean and neat. The only problem I had was when they offered to order a cab for me and they lied saying the cab fare to LaGuardia airport was more than coming to the city. They told me the cab fare would be $38 and I got a yellow cab for $25. They have connections with a cab company that rips their customers off and the hotel must get a kick back. I think this is very bad for their paying customers. I liked staying there but please don't take advantage of their cab, suttle serv or entertainment--they rip you off.
