Don't Even Go There!
Just back from a trio to NY, I had the misfortune to stay at Hotel Thirty Thirty. Standard Rooms are dingy, dark and dank with just enough room to turn around in. Reception staff not very helpful, better hotels to be found everywhere.
Shame about the 200 College Students
We stayed here in May 2003. The hotel was clean and in a good location to the sites. However, we had the joy of sharing our stay with hundreds of college students from all over the US! For 3 nights mayhem raged, without any action by the Hotel. Frequent calls to the front desk to complain were not actioned. The whole thing was out of control and the people in question should have been shown the door on the first night they arrived. Suggest you confirm who else is staying there before you commit! Hotel Party Party is more accurate.
I chose the 30 30 from the online reviews and got a good internet rate - $98/nt for 2 nites. It was good - not great. I liked the lobby, the location was super - close to everything I was interested in -- but I forgot that boutique really means small. The room was truly tiny, barely enough room for the queen bed. The TV had to be mounted up in a corner of the room and there was barely enough room in the bathroom for the toilet and shower stall. It was so small the sink was outside in the main part of the room. I was staying alone but still felt like I was bumping into myself; I couldn't imagine two people in that size room. It was clean and well decorated, albeit a little sparse. I go to NYC a few times a year and it's unlikely I'll stay at the 30-30 again.
Besides, there are so many choices it's best to keep trying new hotels.
More BANG FOR YOUR BUCK AT the Hotel Thirty Thirty
I recently stayed that the Hotel Thirty Thirty and chose it because of
the GREAT rate. I was bored of the Marriott's, Hilton's, Ramada's, etc.
and had heard that the hotel was very good.It was close to EVERYWHERE I
wanted to go... easy access to subways, buses, MSG, shopping, Bryant
Park, Library, etc.But the service was excellent, the Restaurant is
GREAT (gives you a feeling of BEING in the Mediterranean!!)The only
drawback was the room is small (I stayed in a Standard Queen room).
However, I wasn't planning on spending my weekend in NYC in my
room!Also, there was no VIEW outside. Again, if I am in my room, it's
because I am either sleeping or TRYING to watching TV resting.The PROS
GREATLY outscore the CONS when it comes to the Hotel Thirty
Exactly what we wanted
We just stayed at Hotel Thirty Thirty and had no idea what to expect. The room was clean and exactly what we thought. No overly spacious but not intended to spend much time in the room. Great location to anywhere in Manhatten. I would definitly stay at this hotel again. Great value!
Hotel ok, location great
Checked into Hotel ok. Room was exactly as the website displayed, yet surprisingly small. Bed quilts itchy and an awful greeny brown colour. Room had two beds, tiny wardrobe and night stand. Bathroom impressive all modern and clean. Staff unfriendly and cold towards me. We had a room which was next to the elevator shaft on 5th floor which was noisy on the 1st night as people getting on and off, running down hallways and the bells ringing on elevator. Got used to it. Felt safe and secure in Hotel but was shocked that there were no coffee/tea making facitilies and the hairdryer I was provided with was dangerous as a spark flew out the wall socket. However our Hotel was in an excellent location, 5 mins walk to Empire state and ten mins to Macy's. Lot's of places to eat in the area (as Hotel didn't even have drink machines!)Overall Hotel was ok for a four night stay but I wouldn't stay there again as I would like to try somewhere new and that provided food. God points clean (maid service every day) secure and great location. Bad points, staffs attitide, lack of facilities and small rooms.
Hotel Thirty Thirty - GREAT
This was my first time visiting New York and what a fantastic time I had, so much so that I am returning again and yes to the same hotel. Fantastic service offered, very friendly staff and the rooms are exactly as shown on the website.What more can I say
Not worth the money
We stayed for 2 nights at Christmas, it was in a brilliant location right up from Empire State building and 5th Ave but the service was just terrible. No reponse when calling reception, no apologies for losing our booking, tiny rooms...Not a good hotel, part of the chain including Habitat and OntheAve hotels.
Thirty Thirty Hotel - Never again
Stayed here the week of Sept 2 for a business trip and got a good rate of $145 for a "suite." The lobby is about as warm as the North Pole in the winter which matched the attitude of the front desk staff. Room was immaculatly clean but bare bones and my "suite" had a sofa and chair in a sitting area but no coffee table or lamp which made it pretty useless. Bathroom was very nice with slate tile throughout. My view of the air shaft and mechanical units was really spectacular. The airconditioner fan was noisy and squeaked incessantly. But the worst was my last night when the Taiwanese tour group checked in at 1:00am and were all assigned to my floor. They were noisy, ran up & down the halls and open & slammed the doors to their rooms. At first I thought I was back in my college dorm. When I finally called the front desk at 3am, I was told that "this is a hotel & people check in and out." He was correct, I checked out at 4:30am for my 11:15am flight figuring I'd bee able to get more sleep at the Red Carpet Club at LaGuardia!
Lived up to my expectations!
After checking out the web site for this hotel, my 2 friends and I were excited about this inexpensive, chic looking hotel in midtown Manhattan. We were hoping it would live up to the impression that the web site created - and it actually did. The lobby was very "cool", the staff courteous and helpful. The hotel doesn't offer many amenities, but we weren't expecting much. The room itself was clean, with simple modern decor - showing it is possible to have a cheap hotel room with tasteful modern furniture. There was a sink in the room, with the toilet and shower separate, which was quite convenient with 3 girls!! I was also impressed with the Grohe shower and faucet fixtures, which shows that they didn't totally "cheap out" when outfitting the rooms. I would stay here again in a "New York minute"! A friend and her husband are staying there this coming weekend, so I'll be hoping their stay lived up to my hype also!

... br> Headed over to Williamsburg today, the uber cool East London equivalent! Graffiti wall murals galore. We headed to Saltie for Lunch and then down to the Mast Brothers chocolate factory tour. This artisan chocolate company produce some really good stuff and to our surprise we were the only ones on the tour, you got to taste each part of the process from bean to ...
So we had this booked from the day we got here. Statue was the first stop, we caught a cab from home because Kim can't walk. Got out about zero degrees and windy as, freezing. We jumped on the boat and went across. Lots of pictures and we got to go up onto the pedestal. From the highest point we could get to, continued a spiral staircase to the crown. We took the whole 3 hrs and then left, we didn't get off at Ellis Island it was getting close to the time we needed ...
Well here we are at last, after all the planning, and I can now tell you my first impressions of New York. First of all, being driven out from the airport, I was amazed at the woollen tangle of freeways. Roads appeared to be coming from every direction, joining the road we were on. It all felt very disorganised, and overtaking happened on the inside, ...
... fast and soon enough we are getting off Coney Island station.
Its a short walk to the pier. One of the first sights we are met with is the famous Nathans hotdog stand. Nathans is well known for its annual hotdog contest where people come from all around the world to stuff their faces with as much hotdogs as they can in the hour. The winner this year stuffed himself with 69 dogs, after which he proposed to his girlfriend, how romantic…
We walk along the pier and ...
... The food was really good and I could find any type of food I wanted! My hostel was nice but the shower situation was just awkward. I loved my room and how quiet and dark it was but I think I will stay in another one next time because this hostel it was hard to meet a lot of people. One of the best memories on the trip will be watching the football match with 600,000 people and hearing them erupt for all 7 goals! I really can't wait to visit Berlin ...
