The Big Apple. Manhattan. SOHO, Queens, Harlem, Lots to see, lots to do.
I have finally found a good sleeping pattern, too bad I leave for home tomorrow. I breakfast and blog and then head out at 10.00 am. It is colder than yesterday and wet. It will stay wet, a fine drizzle all day and into the night. It does not stop anyone from doing anything, it is just annoying.
My first stop is up to the Upper East Side …
I was up early to leave Newton. The Bus left at 8.10 am, the next bus was at 1.10 pm. I didn't want to miss the bus.
Outside it was foggy and misty. The bus stop was, according to the Lakelands Bus Company, behind the Shop-Rite. The Shop-Rite, being the one just over the road from the Holiday Inn, give or take 500 metres. What I discovered …
It is Tuesday and I am not in Belgium, I am still in NYC. I'm feeling good after having an uninterrupted sleep. I shower and breakfast before blogging in the mistaken belief that the breakfast room will be quieter. It isn’t.
After the blog I head out to acquire a few necessities, a poster tube for my poster and another piece of …
I wake up early and unsurprisingly short of sleep as per the norm. Never mind. I write the blog for an hour and then venture down to the breakfast room. The breakfast room has a standard NY tourist hotel breakfast, brewed coffee, bagels, bananas and bedlam. There are not enough toasters, no room to move and seats are in short supply, however the …

Historical Traveler Reviews nyma, the New York Manhattan Hotel New York City
Very clean and tidy place to stay
I never thought a neat little place like that exists in New York City. Our room was small but who cares it was really really CLEAN. Ignore the litter you see around the surrounding areas, that's NYC. This hotel is a gem. We'll definitely go back
My stay in New York city was from Oct 26-29. I went alone and it was to be my first time visiting the Big Apple.
We will be back!
We stayed here in August 2003. Hotel is in a great location - small town Korea. A street filled with Korean shops and fantastic Korean restaurants a great cultural experience. Rooms feature new furnishings and are VERY clean. Easy walking distance to most major attractions.
Empire state just around the corner. Continental breakfast of bagels, donuts and cereal were perfect for a weekend away. Next we are in New York this is where we will be staying.
I have stayed here twice in the last year and was pleasantly surprised that a budget hotel could be so clean and decently-appointed. Every time I visit, I plan on trying a new hotel or part of town, but I always end up back at the great Red Roof because the price is better than some of the shared bathroom dumps! Maid service was excellent; my room is always spotless when I arrive. Some of the rooms are a little small (it's New York!), but others are quite spacious. The front desk staff can be moody, but I've never beat the location and cleanliness for the price. HIGHLY reccomended!
We stayed at the Red Roof Inn on September 4th. The price ($89) was great and the room too ! I did book through the Red Roof's actual website, and altho the room I thought I was getting was not the one we did get, everything was better than I actually accepted. HELPFUL HINT: the parking ($22 per night) is on the corner of 3rd and 32nd. When you turn onto 32nd, you will see the PARK sign. That's where you should go.
Stayed at the Red Roof Inn July 27-30/2003 It was perfect for our situation. We had 2 rooms with 2 adults and 2 older children 13-15, in each room. The rooms were adequate but on the small side. The place was quiet as we had a room facing the inside so street noise was non-existent. The bathroom was fine and had the ususal shampoo and soaps. Four of us managed fine. The TV had movies, and a good variety of channels. There was a breakfast room on the 2nd floor that was small but gave you a coffee, a doughnut, muffin, cereal limited fruit and toast. GO early! The spirits bar on the mezz. was small and had low ceilings. We never stayed for a drink. The location is great! You can see the side of the Empire State building from in front of this hotel.
We stayed at the Red Roof Inn, July 27-30, 2003. We used the trip advisor review to help pick the place. My wife and I with two 15 year old kids stayed in a two double bed room. It's not big but very comfortable and very clean. The continental breakfast of bagels, donut's, juice and coffee was a great way to get going early in the morning. It is located one block from the Empire State building. When you walk out the front door look up, it's framed by the two buildings across the street. Macy's is two blocks away and is a must see even if you don't like to shop. A cab to Times Square was $4.00. It's a great deal for $99.00 a night, I booked through the Red Roof website and confirmed with the hotel, parking the car was $22.00 a night with the ticket validated by the hotel. Parking was just down the block. The bellman was very friendly and helped unload the car on the narrow street and even brought the luggage to the carpark to make it easier to load up when we checked out. We would definately stay there again!!!!!!
Great for a first timer!
First time in new york city. I came with a group of students with my high school. If you will be out and about most of the time in NYC don't waist your money on fancy schmancy hotels! This one works great! Walk to the empire state building or anywhere for the matter if you stay at this hotel. Rooms were nice...3 of us girls stayed in one room and liked it! Clean hotel and the employees werer very nice. Recommend!
This place can always be counted on for a cheap rate. Right near everything, but still on a quiet side street. Short walk to subway. Rooms a bit small, but who the hell sits in their room while in NYC?? Highly recommended.
Red Roof - Great Value
A Good hotel for the cost. Central Location, one Block from Empire State Building. Rooms were clean and spacious, staff friendly. Complimentary breakfast was a Orange Juice, Unlimited Tea or Coffee, a bagel donut or Toast and a piece of Fruit, which was more than adequate. Overall above average hotel for the money they charge
