Travel Blogs from New York City
Nach einem schönen verlängerten Wochenende mit meinen Eltern und meinem Bruder in London, ging es für mich weiter nach New York.
Der 14. Juli 2014 startete bereits um 7:30 Uhr morgens. Ich stand an packte meine restlichen Sachen zusammen und verabschiedete mich von Fabian. Anschliessend lief ich mit meinen Eltern weiter zur Paddigton- …
After we had finished our Christmas stay at the B&B in New Hampshire (Adair Inn), we briefly visited NYC for one night, before flying out to Miami for a few days in the leadup to New Year's. The purpose of our quick visit on December 27 was to catch the Rockettes' Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. This was our last chance to see …
... and the view of the harbor is nice. We can actually see the Statue of Liberty in the distance.
After checking in, we set up, ate lunch and gathered our maps. The metro station was five blocks away. This was the first time we have ridden a subway that went under water. It took us from the New Jersey side to Manhattan - and the real crowds began!
I ordered tickets for the hop-on hop-off bus for NYC before leaving home, so we had to walk ...
... We still had a few bits to do in NYC and also needed some time to plan and book ahead our next few days so we stopped another day in the city. Unfortunately our Hostel was fully booked so we had to move to a different one - a YMCA (yes, we sang the song to ourselves when we got there). This was a bit of a faff but at least it provided us with somewhere to do the bits we needed too. Not much else to put for today.
Cloudy with showers
We are alive we promise! Been busy exploring this amazing city. Third time here now and it just never gets old. Got here after 9 hours on the overnight bus from Canada yesterday morning. We then headed out to a few shops, Times Square and got a nice salad for dinner. I then met the Newmans which was lovely and we caught a cab to Chinatown. Today has been a 'culture vulture' day, getting up nice and early to explore the city on a bus tour. Bloomingdales, ...

Es war super. Alles war sauber, es gab eine Regendusche und das Bett war einfach nur herrlich gross. Es gab sogar einen Kühlschrank im Zimmer. Das Personal war auch sehr nett. Das Hotel hat ausserdem eine super Lage, in der Nähe vom Times Square und dem Brodway

Historical Traveler Reviews Room Mate Grace New York City
I stayed at the QT for a week at the end of March, over Easter.
The Hotel QT accomplishes exactly what it set out to do - and that is to provide a clean, comfortable and tasteful place to sleep. After doing research on the hotel and learning it was based on the idea of an "upscale youth hostel," I was prepared for a decent yet average environment. I am happy to say I was very pleasantly surprised.
Like being at a spa
Just returned--April 8th to 11th and found this hotel to be really fun and unique. The entire place has an ambiance that is like a spa--redwood and slate--very natural. Lit candles surrounding the windows around the pool area. Pool is a beautiful blue with neat waterfall sound which is very interesting. At night you can order drinks through the open window to the bar area.After all the sounds of the city I would grab a float and lay in the warm pool and listen to music. Great breakfast. Beds are wonderful comforters and soft pillows. Great location--across the street from new Bond 45 restaurant. Great price---going back in a month.
Loved it loved it loved it!!!!!!!
Stayed here from 24 - 26 March. Thought it was brilliant, the staff were excellent really friendly and approachable especially at reception!!! Loved the modern rooms although the shower did prove a challenge!!! We got a great price and the free breakfast was lovely, overall, the best of the 3 hotels we stayed in over the last 3 weeks. Very hip without being over the top.
Rooms, sheets and towels clean and loved the massive bed, decoration and flat screen TV. Definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family.
I stayed at the Hotel QT over Easter and I just wanted to let people know how much of a great time we had. It was almost impossible to find a hotel in the city over Easter but I came accross Hotel QT and took the chance. I'm very happy that we went with hotel QT because the staff is excellent and it is such a great location (just off of time square). The price is very reasonable for New York and what other hotel will include a light breakfast!. The rooms aren't the biggest but let's face it you get what you pay for and New York is all prime land. Overall this is a great hotel and has much potential (considering it just opened in Jan 05). I would definetely stay here again when I go back to NYC. Just to mention there are a few excellent places to eat right beside the hotel (Conollys Pub and the bakery next door).
Just checked out of the QT and as everyone notes its a great value for midtown. The pool is now open.
Loved the QT
After reading only 2 reviews at the time we decided to go for it and book this hotel without having seen one photo but it was a great decision. The hotel is brandnew, so not everything is up and running yet, the swimming pool for instance but everything else is great. We were greeted by a lovely staff at reception who upgraded us to a bigger room straight away. The room was huge and with a lovely design, yes minimalist but we liked it very much. The beds are great with lovely bedlinnen and a flatscreen tv at the foot of the bed. The shower is huge and so are the towels. As said the team there are very nice and helpful and our experience made us decide to book another 2 nights when we come back from our trip to Boston.
Hotel QT not for everyone
I stayed at the QT this past weekend with my husband and young son. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean, with a nice bed, TV and bathroom (and towels). It seems hip and cool, if you like minimalist decor. HOWEVER, the rooms are very sparse - no chairs, no storage for clothing (except an open closet), no table or desk...so not comfortable for a visit of more than one night.
The location is great if you want to be near Times Square but I don't think the "bargain" rate of $185 per night was much of a bargain.
Loved the qt
clean rooms, great sheets, nice shower, great lobby and very nice staff....the rooms have a special design, a large bed, a flatscreen tv, large bathroom, thats it! storage space is a little bit small, better nonexistent.....the design has nothing in common with the typical american hotelroom decor! ok, they are still in their opening and there is still a lot to do: sauna and gym are not yet finished and the pool is closed, but for an opening rate 99 $...wonderful!
