Oh my God!!! Hot in here!!
August 31, 2003 - September 2, 2003 Okay - here is the "real deal" about this hotel. The location is wonderful! Right around the corner from Macy's, subway stations are at the corner - around every corner - you can find something to eat - great location! Check-in w/ Diyva was cool - asked her to give us a nice room (it was 3 women)- she said no - and we thought she was kidding!! But she wasn't - she put us in room 715 - where the room was the size of my car (a mustang)! The air was broken and the toliet didn't flush! The room was horrible - it was on the street - so all night we heard horns blowing - and on top of that it was hot as *$@(! So we complained about the air not working and they said the entire hotel's air wasn't working and they were working on it (mind you - it's 2am) - they sent some George the bellman up to make us think he was fixing the air - what the #%*$! The hotel does offer complimentary continental breakfast (bagels and donuts, oh yea cereal too!) - after we ate rubbery bagels we went to the front desk and spoke with the manager - thank heavens the housekeeping manager was standing there too - they moved us to room 1208 - which had a window a/c unit - and was twice the size of the room 715 - the room was wonderful! The staff is wonderful (housekeepers are really nice)! Also, there is a roof top bar on 14 - the hours are crazy though - not ran by the hotel - so it's open when someone comes in to run the bar... Overall, the hotel was an experience in itself... Will I stay here again?? Maybe! Maybe not!
Great all around!
Great Hotel. I almost don't want to tell anyone because I want there always to be room for me! We (2 of us) got a great price on the internet, a wonderful view of the Empire state building, and the room was huge! Sometimes you just get lucky I guess. I stayed here last year, (2002) when it was a Best western, and had some problems with the air-conditioner, but they gave me another room that had a working conditioner after a few (HOT) hours. This year was great though. The free breakfast every morning has lots and lots of choices. If they can keep the good price I'll definitely be back. THe location was tops also. Room was clean.
We were there Sat, 6/21/03. This was by far the worst hotel I've ever been to. I called the reservation number and they promised me a non smoking room and requested a room with a view of the Empire State Bldg. We got a 3rd floor smoking room with a view of the alley. I called the front desk, there are absolutely no rooms with a view of the ESB a the La Q, and there was no non smoking rooms left that night. If the mysterious stains weren't enough, minutes after we stepped of the elevator to the "rooftop bar" (not a view there either), the elevator fell-not crashed to the bottom, but it definately fell. We checked out at 7 AM the next morning and went thru ... for our next hotel. It was only $10 more a night, and well worth it! While leaving La Q, I noticed the elevator was covered with yellow cation tape, even the next morning! I do not recommend La Qunita to anybody, even my worst enemy.
Great Room Great Price
Stayed here with my sister (who was visiting NYC for the first time) in April and she picked this room for $79 a night. I've stay in many a NYC hotel room, so naturally, I was terrified before I got there but, once there, was shockingly surprised. The hotel has absolutely no character or charm... but the room was clean & spacious (NYC standards), the service friendly, the location great -- all at a really affordable price for NYC. I was floored. The bathroom was marble! (BTW the bathrooms are nothing to write home about but at this price they are.)
Recommend La Quinta Manhattan (ex Best Western)
We didn't know NY before our recent trip and were delighted with the
location of our hotel. It is marvellously central for walking to Times
Square, Chelsea, along Fifth Avenue and there is the
34thStreet/HeraldSquare subway station at the corner with lines going
just about everywhere you could want to visit. For a good quality,
standard but superbly situated hotel, I can't recommend this one
I feel at home.
Every year, I travel to NY. And would stay no wherebut here. Great price and excellent service
Located just West of 5th Ave on 32ed it is close to stores and 2 blocks from Penn Station. However, the rooms are SMALL and noise form 32ed St comes right through the windows - especially the Trash pick-up at 3:00am. NYC breakfast included with room was limited.
Best Deal in NYC!
This highly affordable hotel is turning us into frequent NYC visitors. We get the AARP/AAA rate, often under $90 per night during the week. It's a short walk from Penn Station, close to subways and busses. The rooms range from small to not so small, are clean, comfortable and come with a "continental" breakfast. (Ask for a room near the rear to avoid trash collection noise.) The value conscious hotel guests come from all over the world. Just don't tell anyone else about this place!
A Fantastic deal
This hotel is very cheap for its location, i.e.
it is directly underneath the Empire State Building,
around the corner from Macies and 5th Avenue.
The room we stayed in was clean and tidy with on suite bathroom and a TV - no view but that doesn't matter becuase you don't stay inside when you're in New York ! Staff are friendly and you can come and go as you please.
Basic hotel, good location
I've just come back from NYC where I stayed at the hotel best western manhattan. It is a no frills hotel: very basic rooms, ours was really quiet, very basic free breakfast but a great location. Only a block away from the Empire State building, 5th Ave and Macy's. As long as you don't expect anything too fancy, best western manhattan should make you satisfied.

... looking for. It was water, and they were finding quite a few. Because of this, we took off 35 minutes late, at 7.35pm aboard Cathay Pacific Flight CX 173 in an Airbus A330-300.
We hadn't been able to book the back row this time, so were 4 rows from the back. There were only two seats in the row by the window, so we were happy. It was dark when we took off, but looking backwards I could see the spreading lights of Hong Kong receding into the ...
... with three of the girls ( Claudia not yet causing havoc in our world) and they were all sub five years old. That added to the chaos that is the Big Apple. In 2012 I was lucky to visit with a pack of gorgeous girlfriends and although we were nothing like the Wolf Pack we certainly tested NY's ability to entertain 24/7 and came home revitalised, energised and ready for the return to the daily grind sustained by just a little bit of that NY sparkle for some ...
Friday 27/3 - While the girls went off shopping I did a bike tour with BiketheBigApple tours. There were 5 of us + the guide (Mark). An older couple from the UK and another couple from Norway. After bike allocation, setup and a breifing on some road etiquette we were off into the NY traffic. 1st stop 2 blocks away and we had to carry our bikes up 2 sets of stairs to board a gondola to cross the ...
... cold but the boys both managed to knock off huge sodas and although there was no beer served after half time there were plenty of drunks, a couple of fights and a bit of bad language but mostly fun amongst the crowd. Big queues for the bus back to Manhattan, again, very cold and surprisingly not nearly enough busses - couldn't believe the lack of busses to get everyone away from the ground! Once on the bus, standing room only, it was warm and apart from traffic ...
... and buzzed at the door but no response, we tried for ten minutes, and yelled up to the 3rd floor to see if Matty or Tysoe would hear us. No good so we went and found some food and luckily could find wifi. 45mins later they came out the front and let us in. We found out the buzzer was out of action, and we only had one set of keys which was a bit annoying. Anyway, it was good to see Matty again and meet Tysoe. Matty is like a brother to us so we have a lot of ...
