      Historical Traveler Reviews The Time New York City

      Tiny rooms!


      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.

      Great place in great location


      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!

      Great experience


      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 :-)

      Time out for The Time


      From management down, this relatively new property needs

      work. I stayed the weekend of March 22- 2002, a very cold weekend in NYC. The heat in my original room, as well as the room I switched to, was less than adequate. Summer could be a real nightmare with the quality of these climate control systems. By the end of my 4 day stay the temperature in my room was nearly 80. I had to open the windows for relief. There is a significant difference in the sizes of this hotel's suites. The rooms, for their age, are already showing signs of poor maintainance. The TV in my

      bedroom would not turn off the entire duration of my stay. Coco Pazzo, the room service provider, is not the same Coco Pazzo I've dined at several times. The pizza I ordered from room service tasted like a cheap frozen variety. No Sunday paper was delivered to my room. And in difference to all

      of this hotel's advertising - they DO NOT offer web TV or even high speed internet access.

      Nice style/design - Poor Management. Until you read otherwise, keep shopping for a better hotel.

      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.

      ... Then we went for a stroll, as much as you can stroll in NY. JY is a bit on edge in case I 'have another fall' tripping in one of the huge potholes that are everywhere. I was on a hunt for skin-hugging tight pants - after 24 hours I was feeling a bit out of place. I figured there's only me and an old Harlem Granny wearing anything but. I had success at H & M. I probably wouldn't be caught dead in them in Perth but I wouldn't be caught dead in anything else in NY. ...
