... managed to get a subway to the one and only Times Square. It is incredible. I walked about 15 miles down various streets and avenues, seeing many things and talking to various people. this was it, this was why I came travelling. I also managed to quite literally bump into lady gaga which was bizarre, I mean, I thought the 30 screaming people were for me. Friday, again I woke up and got a subway downtown. When arriving at the ...

Chrissie wanted to tick the Empire State Building off her bucket list and Al & Robyn went home and off we went. The staff told us there was zero visibility but we still went up anyway - the building itself is beautiful and yep they were right it was just like looking at a blank piece of paper!

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!

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.
