Travel Blogs from New York City
Things have been so crazy it has been hard to blog. Monday it was back to work at MTV New York. Ended up with a new project that had to be done right away. You know what they say about best laid plans. While all that was happening, Randye took Dad to visit with our Rabbi's wife. The Rabbi passed away six years ago. They went to lunch and to see the …
Well, the flight was very bumpy for the last 4o minutes but we must have had a major jetstream behind us. It only took about 4 hours and 15 minutes. Amazing. Dad did well on the flight, if a little bored. A guy next to us had the NY Post and times and he let my Dad have them when he was done, so for the most part, Dad was happy. I was happy to get …
... they were processed. Lovely architecture and art to see along the park. We were exhausted when we went to bed.
Saturday morning Dad and Alma had arrived from Chicago late the night before - yay! We headed out on the subway again and went to the Ground Zero Memorial , which was very moving. We randomly happened upon the name of Todd Beamer on the memorial (there is a school named after him in ...
We started off the day (Friday 16th) walking through the Central Park to The Museum of Natural History which is fantastic!!! The dinosaur skeletons are second to none in this museum!!!! I really thought that the American Indian cultural display was brilliant and showed the diversity of the culture really well. the only thing is that the entry does not include the Whale or the Frog display this is separate. I was pleased our NYC ...
... smooth as you book in at 2 and they cart you over to 4, no hassles and you get a close up view of all of the planes on the tarmac. As we are flying Business Class Sue thought she would try to get into the lounge although I could see it was restricted to their premium flyers. I could hear a reference to the Virgin Lounge in Perth and something along the lines of "you don't realise how important I am in Aus". She won and we are now sitting in the lounge awaiting our flight, more when we get to Las Vegas.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Time New York City
I book a superior room for four days and was shocked that the room was tiny! I cannot imagine how much smaller the regular rooms would be. This is the smallest room I had ever seen in a hotel. The superior room is smaller than a regular room in other hotels. I have been to hotels in Japan, Hawaii, Singapore, United Kingdom and many other places so I know about hotel room sizes. The housekeeping took ages to come but they did a good job in cleaning the room. There are bigger and better hotels out there for this price range.
Had a great Time
I recently stayed at The Time on a business trip and wound up feling more like I was on vacation. The service was excellent, the rooms comfortably modern and the bar rocked. I have found my new home away from home.
I had seen The Time on the Travel Channel on in various travel magazines and was very interested in the concept. I booked a superior suite for two nights, and ended up being in a "yellow" room. I was suprised at how small the suite was, and was thankful that I didn't book a regular room. The first room was tiny and had a small sofa, table, desk, and television. The other room was a bit larger and had a queen size bed, not king as was indicated when I booked on the web site, a small chair, television, night stands, and a closet contraption on one wall. The bed was very comfortable despite being smaller than anticipated. The bathroom was relatively small, but had a tub with whirlpool jets that did not seem to work. I understand the concept of this hotel and find it interesting, but they go a little too far with minimalism in the decor. Some art work on the wall would have been nice. As for the staff, some were very friendly and others were a bit surly and gruff. Perhaps they were having a bad day due to the terrible weather in NYC that week. Overall, I think there are nicer boutique hotels, with better amenities, in NYC for the same price.
Nice, but the Muse is better for the same price
It was nice. Very cool design. But the rooms were a bit small. I stay in NY a lot. So far the Muse is the best I've found.
I booked the Time a good two months ago with my girlfriend for 5 nights in December. We believed that the reasonably high rate we were paying would reflect on our stay. We were not disappointed. The room was smallish but cosy, just the right size in fact and more importantly warm and clean. The shower was a good temperature (even though I would have prefered it to be hotter) and did leak slightly outside the door and onto the floor but that to one side everything was perfect. You are well looked after in the Time from the doorman to the concierge (even though I would recommend getting theatre tickets upfront as apposed to paying the $25 dollars on top going through him!) and our stay was made that little bit more enjoyable. We went during the most expensive time of the year but on this stay the Time was great value for money.
Smallish rooms, but comfortable
Stayed on a business trip (someone else's money) so price was not an issue. A comfortable hotel; clean, friendly service and very convenient to midtown NY.
Nice but over priced
i had stayed at the time for a weekend in march for my boyfriends 21st birthday and expected we would be able to drink in the room since the boosted all rooms come with a fully stocked mini bar. well when we arrived there was nothing in the bar but an open coors light and after continues requests to fix the problem nothing was done till the next day and when it was finnily fixed i had no idea that you would have to pay extra everything thats in there!...about 6.75 for a bottle of corona and 3.50 for a snikers bar. my red room was very small and had no web tv. i did not feel i got my moneys worth since what i thought i would be getting i would actually get to use!
I visited August of 2001 and had an excellent time. This trendy upscale hotel had excellent service, a superb layout, and is in a great location. The lounge is awesome, and because of the great time that I had there, I have planned another stay this May :-)
From management down, this relatively new property needs
The Time Hotel Review
I stayed at the Time in Nov 01 for 2 nights. I had a wonderful time there. Really nice rooms, I had a Yellow one. Gorgeous bathrooms, lovely bed and my room was quite big. The staff were really helpful and the concierge was great. He even took me up to show me around the Penthouse. I would recommend staying here to anyone. I will definetly stay there next time I'm in NY.
