I wasn't really intending to go to NYC this year. It's one of my favorite places to go, but with my big trip coming up in just a month, another trip really wasn't in my plans. It's all Greyhound's fault I went. I swear. They waved that $2 (yes, that's not a typo - 2 whole US dollars) fare in front of my cursor, and I got weak. I couldn't say no. I …
Hi to everyone from The Big Apple.... we were due to arrive last Saturday but ended up flying out Sunday so arrived a day later instead. We had said our goodbyes to my sister Michelle & family at the airport in Paris and were preparing for a chaotic check-in and flight on the busiest day of the year at Charles de Gaulle airport (it was the …
... and really still recovering from Vegas. Jason decided it was high time for his beard to come off so he splashed out and got it done with a straight blade at a barbers. Really though, it was too long for a razor and his electric one broke. The Lower East side is amazing though. It has a lot of rad and delicious eateries, bars, boutique and op shops as well as some very cool jewelry places... which I did dabble a little bit in, I must say. Also, delis. About 800 delis. The delis in ...
... our exploration, few block down to Snuf Bar (much better that is sounds) this was the beginning of terrys love affair with Samuel Adams (it's a beer of course). Dinner that night was hamburgers and fries at Johnny Rocket no alcohol just iced water (which dave said that it would go right through you). So back to the hotel via a licquor store (see photo of dave with our shameful ...
... our first ball game at the New York Mets. Having grabbed a bit of food and pulling Dave out of bed we crammed into the hot metal tube and stood for the 20 minute ride to the Citi Field. The experience was well worth the $20 entry fee even though we were up in the Gods with the moths attracted by the floodlights but we could easily walk close to the action to get some good pictures. The Mets Lost 13-0 to cries of 'Mets Suck!' from the drunken ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Herald Square Hotel New York City
Hostel looking hotel
the first time i stayed at the Herald Square Htl was in 1995 and at that time this was really a bargain budget hotel. Good location in midtown, just 2 blocks from subway. it used to be clean and the rooms (most of 'em very dark if not in the street side) were nice and large enough for its category ...except the one i got for the 1st night that was as big as the size of the bed!
i've just came back from the Herald where i stayed again and the hotel is a complete dump right now. i am upset because i thought to find the same place it was years ago but this time i found it a little dirty (hair and other stuff in the toilet floor/sink) and right now the rooms really need to get a "high maintenance" to be again as nice as they used to be.
it's still a very good priced hotel especially for new york (payed $120.00 per night for a triple and have a big bargain with the garage where i parked for $20 per day) but be awared that right now it's more a hostel looking than a budget hotel as it used to be!
Perfect for the budget traveller
I stayed here in Nov02 and it was everything I was looking for. Great location, great price and clean. I was travelling solo and the single rooms were not huge, but you dont go to NY to spend time in your hotel room.
If you're looking for a room to sleep in, with a bathroom to clean up in, this will do. If you're used to lots of 'amenities' - toiletries in the bathroom, views, ironing board, etc. - this will seem awfully spartan. But my room was clean, the bathroom was _very_ clean, the mattress was comfortable, and the staff were quite accommodating. On the con side, I wouldn't want to spend too many nights there - the room was small, no question about it, and the airshaft didn't let in very much light. But for a short trip where budget is an issue, it was ideal. Oh, and the period magazine covers used as decoration in the lobby and hallways were charming.
Happy at the Herald
I came down to New York for a couple of days with my friends from school. This girl told me about the Herald Square Hotel and said it was perfect for students. It was clean and right in the center of the city. I could not have been happier. Thank You!
Mice and dirt at the Herald Square Hotel
I have worked at and stayed in many hotels. I read the reviews for this one and was prepared for a small room. It was tiny beyond belief with one tiny window that let in no light whatsover. Thankfully I am a Tube Train Driver and I am used to cramped dark, dirty conditions.
An ancient television with an incorrect flashing clock and a remote with a mind of its own. A tiny wardrobe, stained chair and no suitcase storage space. A sleepless night thanks to the noisy machinery of the building 6 feet away prompted me to buy earplugs for my second night. On my way to the one very slow elevator I saw a mouse scamper under someone's door, poor them I thought until a mouse paid me a visit in my room while I was about to get into bed.
Paint flaking from the bathroom ceiling falling through the false celiing, someone else's rubbish under the bed, not a place to stay. My request for an extended check out due to an evening flight was met with an unconditional 'check out time is 12pm'. Dust everywhere thanks to building works ( a sign appeared apologising on my last day)I wanted a budget hotel, I certainly got it, it was a toss up between the Penn and this, I should've went to the Penn, far superior to this hovel.
Two good points though...it is a handy central location and there is no food to get poisioning from.
Comfortable, clean value!
Like a museum, the Herald Square astounded me with it's artwork and magaizine cover displays. A very clean and comfortable hotel, with cozy rooms. I couldn't believe I got such a great hotel for under $100 per night!
No bed bugs here...
I wa alarmed by a review on this site which reported bed bugs at this hotel. I stayed in a single room with private bath in July 2002 and had no problem. In fact this hotel represented very good value at $79 a night - the room was spacious and clean. In fact much better than another hotel I stayed at in New York. Great location for shopping at Macy's too!
Life in Herald Square
Being on a tight budget, but wanting to visit N.Y.C. we searched the internet for a cheap but good hotel.We found the Herald Square Hotel highly recommended at many web sites so we tried it.Great location, very clean rooms interesting history and friendly staff.Was home to the old Life magazine and Charles Dana Gibson of Gibson girl fame.Ask for the 9th floor!

Bed Bug Beware
I stayed at the Herald Square Hotel in May 2002. The Hotel was well located and cheap. The dingyness of the rooms was OK considering the price and they were reasonably clean. However the beding was infested with bed bugs that bit me all over and caused a hideous itchy and painful rash that lasted for more than a week.
