    Very nice, small, boutique hotel. Loved the location, decor and size. A block off Broadway, midway (easy walking distance) between Central Park and Times Square.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Moderne Hotel New York City

    Nice little hotel in a great location

    from

    I stayed at the Moderne during 19 November - 24 November 2003. For its price, it really cannot be beaten. It's in a great location - 10 minutes walk away from Times Square and 2 blocks from Central Park.

    The hotel itself is clean and has some great decor - the bathroom is large and spacious and there is always hot water. A complimentary breakfast of bagels and coffee is provided, but there are plenty of diners nearby if this doesn't appeal.

    The staff are friendly and helpful - the only problem I experienced was my key often didn't work, but this was quickly sorted with a quick trip down to reception.

    McGee's is a great Irish pub just over the road.

    Stayed nove 17th 20th November 03

    we founbd the hotel to be entral for all our needs our room was very dark so lighting needs to be looked at air con going all day but not affected to much as out all day you get what you pay for not an unpleaseant time plenty of hot water and great coffee 24/7

    say hi to the flag man outside he made our day each morning always cheerful and pleasent we found ALL New Yorkers friendly will return again great city

    Take no notice

    from

    Take no notice of other reviews claiming this is a below average hotel.

    My wife an I recently stayed at the Moderne for five nights and were so happy that we have booked again for next year. The hotel is in a brilliant location, right off Broadway and only 5 minutes from Central Park and Time Square. For $120 per night we satyed in a well designed,modern room with an iron, ironing board, fresh towells every morning, hot water, hairdryer and a comfortable bed. This is all you need from a NYC hotel as you should be spending most of your time exploring the most fascinating city in the world (not worrying about the hotel gym). The hotel also provides an excellent complimentary breakfast of bagels, fresh orange and a variety of coffee.

    Liked it...

    from

    Stayed at the Moderne in June 2003 and I would do it again. It's really close to everything and the price is right!

    To be honest, not impressed

    from

    I know it was a busy weekend in New York for the Marathon, but because of budgets I was almost forced to go for the Moderne without reading the reviews here first - boy, do I wish I had read them!

    Almost from the start I had problems. The room I was in smelt musty, the toilet didn't flush properly and the sink didn't hold water because the plug was faulty. My view was of a wall, and the air conditioning was noisy. If you get a room on the ground floor beware - because this will be the same. The video was also missing a cable, which took almost two days to fix.

    So why not one mark? Well, the staff were very helpful and I get the feeling I would have got a room change had it not already been fully booked. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the room clean and of good size. It's just the bad memories of the Moderne will always outweigh the good ones. The hotel needs improving .... and fast!

    Moderne and quaintly shabby don't mix

    from

    Nice try, but the result was an uneasy combination of clever mod decor and a below-average, just-plain-old NY hotel under a rapidly aging (if hip) coat of paint. It's possible to make over an old hotel (Morgans, for instance), but this one looks like they ran out of money - a while ago. Sheets were too small for bed, desk lamp was broken and flickering, paint and carpet were showing wear. Also, our standard room was the smallest I've seen in NY, and the single window was so close to adjacent building the room had zero natural light at 12 noon. At $100 this could be a bargain. At $180+ there are many nicer properties to choose from. On the bright side, it is hard to find a NY hotel that hasn't bought into the whole kitchy art deco thing - the mid-20th-century modern treatment is refreshing and convincing.

    Will stay again!

    from

    There were six of us girls that stayed here in May of 2003 and it was great. Loved the comfortable beds and the bathroom was very clean. The large soaking tub was wonderful after a long day of sightseeing. They even had a continental breakfast every morning with juices, coffee, bagels and cream cheese. The price and location can't be beat. Will be staying there again this December.

    A Modest Moderne

    from

    I stayed at the Moderne from 26 June to 7 July 2003. It is a clean hotel with accommodating staff, very near to Broadway, only 5 minutes walk, and also five minutes walk to Central Park. The room I was in had no view, the water pressure in the bathroom was low, and the toilet didnt flush too well, but for $100 I moved to a suite with more space, a lovely bathroom, and a view onto the street where I could get some light! Any problems I had (key not working, telephone not connecting) were quickly dealt with by the staff who were pleasant but not overly-familiar. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in a clean, friendly hotel, and to be near to all the sights.

    Great hotel

    from

    I requested 2 double beds and got them, so I was happy in that regard--seeing I had 2 kids, ages 12 and 15 (boy and girl). The people at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean (but tiny--but we expected that). What was wonderful is that it was quiet! There was enough hot water for us and the beds were fairly comfortable (I'm use to a waterbed, so....) In the morning we would go downstairs and have a bagel and either juice or coffee--always fresh. We could walk to Time Square--and we did every night. This hotel is on the same block as the now famous Seinfeld Soup Kitchen "restaurant". Worth a picture. We just loved where we stayed!

    Great Hotel

    from

    This was the second time I stayed at the Moderne. The hotel is clean, in a great location, and the attitudes of the staff were much improved from the last time that I was there. I would stay there again in a heart beat!

    One of those semi-sleepless nights following change of continent and timezones but not enough to dampen our excitement at being once again in the Big Apple! So after a bit of a slow start we dropped some laundry at out local wash and fold service (pay by the pound) and can pick it up again in the morning if we pay the US$8 fee! Next stop was coffee …

    Another beautiful day ... a little more shopping. While I haven't yet visited Uniqlo Melbourne I couldn't resist stopping by the very smart global flagship Uniqlo store on 5th Avenue. They have a current collaboration with MoMA taking modern art to the masses via t shirts (and other UNIque CLOthes). We couldn't resist just a couple of Keith Haring' …

    After a relaxed start to the day, and with no appointments until dinner at 6pm we figured it was time to check out the Barney's New York sale!!! So, following breakfast at Zibetto we ventured forth into the wilds of Madison Avenue to examine the boutiques. Some hours and dollars later we found ourselves on Lexington Avenue with far to many bags to …

    So, we arrived at JFK on schedule and were permitted entry to the USA by the cheery border guard. US border protection is very thorough and anyone travelling here should expect to spend some considerable time in queues and to be questioned, photographed and electronically finger printed. The only way through is the polite and patient way. Luggage …
