    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grand Union New York City

    Room with A view

    from

    Just got back from New York. Stayed here at the Grand Union (10-14 Feb 2004), because of it's location. Wanted to be near Empire State Building, which I always wanted to visit. Once in my room I opened the curtains and right above me stood the magnificent Empire State Building. I Could'nt believe my luck. I had been given a room right on corner of hotel on 8th floor. What a sight! Room had good solid furniture and was very clean. Hallways were very tidy. Bathroom had a bath/shower combination and provided towels. Maid service every day. TV in room has HBO movie channel with 24hr movies. Checkout is 12.00.

    There is a secure luggage room next to reception. If you have a later flight home it allows you to have a last look around town before picking up your luggage. Very helpful staff on reception made stay a very pleasant one. Would recommend.

    arrived10/10/03 from the minute we arrived we were made so welcome.

    staff so helpful rooms comfy and clean. going back next year and will be back at the grand union. june & dawn.

    Fantastic Value

    from

    When i was looking for accomodation for my trip to new york on the 29th December 2003, I wanted somewhere affordable, clean, close to the attractions (2 blocks from the Empire State Building!) and secure and that is exactly what i got.

    The staff where very friendly, our room was made up every day, the bathroom was spotless and we had a t.v and refrigerator in the room.

    Which was great after an exhausting day shopping!!

    The only thing that disappointed me was that there was no bar in the hotel....but i overcame that after finding some excellent Irish bars nearby.

    If your going to the Big Apple anytime soon...have a safe trip and enjoy yourself! Oh and stay at the Hotel Grand Union!

    Excellent Value

    from

    Wow...where do I begin? First off the location is very good....close walk to many attractions, and the Green line subway has a stop right on that block.

    Secondly...the hotel is an excellent value choice. The lobby was bright and clean. The staff was excellent, rooms are very clean (even the corners and under the bed!) The room, for the price, was positively huge. I stayed on the 10th floor on on far end of the hallway.

    About the only bad thing I could find to say is that there is only one elevator, and it is kinda slow, but for $100 per night near the Thanksgiving holiday I'll put up with a slow elevator any day of the week! Definately look into this as you are shopping around for hotels in NYC.

    Clean, safe and cheap

    from

    I travel to NYC about once a year on business, and I've stayed at the Grand Union two or three times. It's clean, safe, cheap, near my client's offices, and has refridgerators in the rooms. What more could you ask? Some of the rooms have only showers and not bathtubs.

    Great budget place

    from

    This was one of the cheapest hotels we could find in a great location.

    Everything was clean and tidy, room was always made up and staff were always friendly and courteous.

    Definitely recommend it.

    Friendly and good value! ****

    from

    Stay in the centre of manhatten, want good value for money, freindly service at the counter and at a reasonable price.

    Diner is attached to side of the hotel, only drawback is it closes at 7pm so no munchies while watching HBO or TNT but great takeaways round both corners.

    I strongly reccommend to all!

    Loved it! a very good bargain

    from

    I stayed there for a week with a lady friend of mine. Took the double room. Room was clean and tidy. Beds were made up every day and clean towles were provided. Shower tap was strange to handle, but once you figured out how it works it was OK - hot water at abundance.I recommend for the economy-wise traveler to stay in this hotel. I certainly will do that again next time I drop in NY.

    Grand Union Hotel

    from

    Just returned from a great trip to New York,We stayed at the Grand Union Hotel under the shadow of the Empire state building and literally minutes from Times Sq,Macys ,MSG,5th Ave.A perfect location . The rooms are quite small but very clean with new bathrooms and free TV .Our original room overlooked the street outside but became very cold when the temp outside only peaked at 26 degrees!!We spoke to reception who couldnt be nicer and immediately moved us to a new room which was like a sauna!Heaven! I'd wouldnt hesitate to stay at the grand union again but would wait until the weather warmed up a bit on the streets,As for New Yorkers there warm hearted enough anyway,and just add to the experience!

    What a Great Bargain!!!!

    from

    I wanted to take my fiance for a night out on the town and found this quaint hotel to stay at. The rooms are so well kept with new marble bathrooms. I couldn't believe the price. Only $90 without taxes. We were in the middle of the city and it so easy to get to anywhere we decided we wanted to visit. I really recomment it to anyone who wants the most out of their money.
