Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Manhattan New York City
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.

... interesting to see the reactions of Australian quarantine officials!
After finishing the last of our lunch supplies back at the hostel, we caught the subway to South Ferry terminal avoiding the many touts outside to join the queue for the free Staten Island Ferry. The ferry ride gave us an opportunity to see the statue of Liberty up close without having to pay a cent. Out on the water it was ...
... 4pm so we decide to check out the fitness center here at the hotel. We spend a good hour at the gym working out before catching up with Kelley. Kelley texted us and told us she was working but we could come by for a drink or dinner if we wanted. She works at Delmonico’s Kitchen, a really nice restaurant. So we shower and clean up and head off in the direction of her restaurant. We admire the streets and dodge all the foot traffic along the way. ...
... stop a little speed boat that was speeding our way a bit too quick. Bryan had his jelly on this feed but is has all melted and is a bit warm. But everything is warm.
Going past pier 40, Louise explained you can take free kayaks from there.

... on the exact sights of the original World Trade Centre buildings. We ended the afternoon sitting in Central Park. It was an amazing first day, New York is billed as the Rome of today, and comfortably lives up to its status as being the worlds greatest city. Later that night Alex and I went to play football in west Manhattan, the setting was incredible we played under the shadow of the new world trade centre. After the game we went for a few beers, ...
... New Yorker waiter, slick back hair the lot. Just think the God Father! Other cool areas were Soho which was great for shopping, Chelsea with its food markets and the meat packing district.
Another touristy day was spent on the Staten Island ferry, viewing the Statue of Liberty as well as walking Wall Street and the financial district, followed by the 9/11 memorial site. They have turned the twin tower sights into massive water features, with ...
