Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Metro New York City
We stayed here in May 2003 and found the hotel to be excellent. Room was compact but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was greatly appreciated and of a good standard. Location was quite good for getting about Manhattan as it is a short walk to 5th or 6th. Also a 5 minute walk from Macey's and only a few blocks from Grand Central Station. If we go back to New York this will probably be the first hotel we try to book.
i have just got back from staying at the metro!we had a wonderful time!
the best thing about the hotel was being so near to macys!wenever we had too mnay bags we wud just drop our stuff back to the hotel!the free coffe and tea 24 hours was also a great deal! the terrace is still open in the winter and we were able to have a great view of the empire state building! stay at teh metro u wont be disapointed!
Felt like Southern Hospitality!
Couldn't have found a better bargain in NYC, or nicer people than the staff at this lovely little hotel. It's not just that the rooms were spotlessly clean - there is a feeling of hospitality here that transends expectations. We read about it in Frommer's as the best moderately priced hotel so knew it would be a value, and it is, but no way is this a budget hotel. It isn't the fanciest place in town, but it IS my new favorite. As for the reviews about small rooms - well, you know NYC is know for having smallish hotel rooms and there is so much more here that just MADE our trip. The breakfast room server always has a smile and the bellman had more helpful hints for theatre tickets than a concierge! Loved, loved, loved the Metro.
Had a great stay!
I stayed at the Metro July 2- July 4 this year, and I found this hotel to be far more than I expected for the price. It's in a wonderful location and the staff is nothing short of willing to help at every turn. The hotel lobby is smartly decorated in an art deco theme that carries through to the guest rooms. The rooms are small, but very clean, modern and with every amenity you'd need for a 2 or 3 day stay.
I didn't get to dine at the restaurant located in the hotel, but I heard great things from other guests. The thing that sold me on this hotel was the fact that I left a pair of earrings in the bathroom of our room. I didn't realize it unitl I returned home. I emailed the hotel, recieved a response the next day saying that they found my earrings and would mail them out to me immediately. They arrived 2 days later. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to experience the city of NY on a moderate budget, but still wants world class service.
V small rooms, good staff
Was disappointed by the size of the room, and more particularly by the size of the bed - smallest double bed I have ever seen. it was a tight squeeze for the two of us.
Having said that, the location is good as it's right beside Macy's and the rest of the 34th st shopping area.
Staff were very friendly and honest. I left a jacket in the wardrobe and was relieved to find that they kept it for me (although it was tough to get through to lost and found).
Also, something infrequent in American hotels in my experience: breakfast (of a sort) is provided inclusive. Basically, they offer croissants, danish rolls, etc and coffee in a communal area for guests.
That was a pleasant surprise.
Didn't make it to the rooftop bar as we were only there 1 night and didn't have the time
Metro Hotel is a Winner!
We have just had 5 nights at the Metro Hotel in Manhattan. The locations is fantastic, less than 5 minutes from Empire State Building, Macy's and just a little further to Times Square and fantastic eateries.The Metro was really good value for money, the included breakfasts saved time and money and was a good start to each morning.The room was of a decent size (tho' the TV was poor - but hey, who needs TV in NY!?). The reception staff were helpful although not intrusive, ie. there to help if needed. The 24 hour tea/coffee was a welcome after full days walking around (we hardly used the sub-ways).We loved NY and are planning on coming back. We would consider the Metro again because of the value, but having now seen the Big A, it would be really nice to stay in somewhere with a view (preferably over Central Park) although we realise this means premium rates. Next Anniversary p'haps!Well done Cresta City Breaks - everything worked v. well.8/10 for the Metro.
A Great Recommendation from TripAdvisor
After reading the positive reviews given about this hotel we thought we'd give it a try for our first visit to New York, and we weren't disappointed.
Everything from the location (10 mins walk from Times Square, 1 min to the nearest metro station and just around the corner from the Empire State building), the free breakfast (bagles galore with cream cheese, pastries, tea, coffee & juice) and the wonderful roof top terrace (literally 'touching' the Empire State!) were perfect.
The rooms were clean and spacious and all the staff were friendly & helpful.
We would definitely recommend the Hotel Metro and would have no hesitation in staying there again.
Love this hotel
The best way that I can say thanks for a great stay is to write a positive review. This hotel is a gem in a great location. The accommodation is clean and comfortable, and I found all members of staff that I encountered to be friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are a great bonus. I would return here without hesitation.
I have been to New York 3 times & the last two times i have stayed at the hotel metro, i find it a very friendly & welcoming place, the rooms are clean & comfortable, with all the amenaties you need. Both times i stayed there it was july & very warm! so it is nice to have good air conditioning, also the metro has a rooftop terrace, which sells cocktails in the evenings, it also gives you a fantastic view of the empire state building, which is only one block away! The Metro has a library & coffee lounge that serves complimentary tea & coffee 24 hours a day, which is great after a hard days shopping & sightseeing, which, by the way is plentiful, you also have the added bonus of complimentary continental breakfast, comprising of tea,coffee,orange juice, bagel's, muffins,jams & cheeses all served in the coffee lounge every morning. Both years i have been very sorry to leave the metro, but....i am going back again this July, & yes i am staying at the metro again! i wouldn't want to stay anywhere else
The Metro Hotel is a jewel!
We had four rooms at the Metro in December of 2002. All the rooms were large, very clean and well maintained with marble bathrooms. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The location is excellent - walking distance to many attractions and just around the corner is the subway. The free breakfast and all day coffee and tea are a nice touch. The staff couldn't have been friendlier. The workout room was airy and new and had a great tv. All in all, I don't think there is a better deal for the money (reasonable).

... Later that evening, around 6pm, and no clue what to do with myself as the sun was slowly beginning to set, I became in touch with a lovely French guy (on the usual meeting channel), who was in Chicago for work. After a little banter, we agreed to meet later in the night and check out Boystown together, we'd both never been, and although a place I wanted to check out, I would've been happy to skip it, as after 5 nights in LA, I was completely gay'd out!
