          Just down the road from the Empire State Building and walking distance to a lot of places. The rooms are good but for the price could be better. Scaffolding surrounds the ground floor (and looks like it has for a while). Overall, nice place but overpriced.

          Smallest room possible, no amenities in the hotel which was covered in scaffolding. An information desk who didn't know where The Lincoln Center was and had no city maps. And all for $400 a night!

          De kamer die we hadden was akelig klein voor het geld dat je betaalt, maar je zit wel midden in New York.

          As I said, nice hotel, okay. It's clean, well taken care of. Obviously an excellent place just in general. But it's right across from the train station. End of story. Didn't eat in their restaurant (I'm in NYC, so waaaay too many options for that).

          Hated it!!!


          I thought the hotel had no atmosphere or elegance about it. The lobby looks okay but the rooms are very poorly decorated and quite grubby. They are not neatly decorated either. My bathroom was very basic and looked quite old. The beds were quite comfy though and I had a tv with all the channels etc but the diner downstairs was poor, the conference rooms were poor and for the price I would go somewhere else and have a nicer stay. If you are coming to NY for a treat or occasion and this is all you can afford then try and stretch the budget a little extra for a better hotel

          Native NY'er says "These rooms are perfect for the price!"



          Get a grip! These rooms are perfect for the price. I live in NYC (born here and lived here for 35 years) and had some guests in town. I tried to find them some affordable digs and suggested this hotel. Turns out it was a good choice.

          This building has some character, the rooms are clean and the price is right for rooms with non-shared bath. Paid $129 per night. Plus location is the bomb.

          I wudda put these dudes up at Hotel 17 in my hood - but the shared bath thing turned them off.

          By way of "perspective" - I have travelled on the cheap to Quatemala and Kenya - as well as on luxury business trips to Paris and Zurich - so I think I have seen it all. These rooms are beyond 'fine'. [I had friends stay at the Riverside Hotel Apts. in the West 89's - and those rooms were small and dingy and the pull-out bed almost chopped their fingers off!]

          For the price here - you can not go wrong.

          Will have my dudes stay here again - this is the best recommendation you can ask for!

          Good choice


          Stayed there 8/02 and would again. Had a room with 2 doubles and it had two full baths (had once been two separate rooms but the wall and one door was removed). This made a room fairly large room by NYC standards for this price range. The employees were polite and helpful. They are still remodeling the hotel and our floor needed new carpet. Be aware that all rooms do not have a view; ours had virtually none. Ramada matched the best Internet price I could find for this hotel. The matched price was $112/day and would have been less had we not have been there one weekend night. Room was clean. Hotel corner is a subway stop.

          Very Good Value


          Stayed at the New Yorker September 2001 with my family on our first trip to New York. We were very impressed with the room,which had 2 double beds and a large bathroom,and the service. The reception foyer is very impressive however the main halls on the floors were in need of renovation.

          The 24 hour diner was very useful and generally we found the hotel to be a very good base for exploring. There is also an Irish Bar just over the road which is well worth visiting.

          We paid approx $ 140 per night which we considered very good value for money.

          Just booked to go again before Xmas 2002.

          Never again


          I'm reading the other reviews here and I'm wondering... this these people stay at the same Ramada New Yorker as I did???

          Let's start with the bathroom. One word: FILTHY. I've never seen so much dirt, grime, and rust in a hotel bathroom. (And I've been in a lot of hotels, in US, Canada, and Europe.)

          Next.. holes (yes, holes) in the walls, paint chipped, dingy carpet. Room key card took at least 10 tries each time before door finally opened. (One time it took 3 people.) Furniture looked like something out of "All in the Family."

          All this for only $250 per night! 3 and 1/2 stars??? Puh-leeze!!!

          (At least the heat worked... it was March.)

          Over charge and rude general manager


          I was with some friends at that Hotel. At the end of the trip I was charge twice on my banking card and when I tought that the problems were over I was over charge to my credit card $82.95.

          I try to correct the mistake to no avail. The accounting manager Jim Ravis was rude and did not assume any responsability or tried to correct problem. Was like talking to a wall.

          I tried to speak to the hotel general manager and his answer was "... I do not take care of minor problems". His answer was "... with what director I wanted to talked".

          I am still wondering if that is the way that the Ramada Inn organization wants his guests to be treated.

          I am looking to follow a complaint with the city of New York.

          That still a bad over a nice trip to that beautifull city.

          Clean that's it.


          Stayed here and the rooms hall were nicer than the rooms inside. Bathrooms and staff accomodating I am a female and was traveling alone. There was a large space between the wall and the door and floor which made it uncomfortable for to sleep because I see everyone passing the room. May me feel unsafe in my room.



          Stayed at Hotel New Yorker 5/14 - 5/17 2002. Sorry, folks! This place does not rate a 3.5 star rating. Numer 2 at best. Hotel is old and dingy. Our room was small. Water leaked in sink and tub. No room amenities like refrigerator or hair dryer or coffee maker. Through the window, noisy, ineffficient air conditioner (can't imagine July or August in that room!). Not as clean as it could be. Reservation desk too disorganized. Needs express check-in/check-out. Tick/Tock Diner convenient, but food was just a notch above fast food. Service staff above average.

          Great view.


          I stayed at the New Yorker 3/23/02 for one night. Overall I had a very good experience. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I had arrived early, so I was worried that my room would not be available. I had requested a room with a king bed, and at the time, 12:00pm, they did not have rooms ready with a king bed, so they ask me to come back a few hours or take a queen size room or a room with two twin beds. I didn't want to come back because I wanted to tour NYC. I choose the queen size bedroom. The room was nice, and I was impressed on the size of the bathroom. It was a large size bath. The view, I thought was the best. We could see the river and a large portion of the city because we had a corner room with three windows. I highly recommend this hotel for the location, service, and price. I paid $119.00 plus tax.

          So You Want To Be a New Yorker?


          Stayed here New Years Eve(2001). Very convenient location if you're coming in to Penn Station on the train(just a block walk). The hotel is for the most part very nice. My room(standard) was very small as you might expect in NYC, but very nice and clean. The only real negative was that I was on the 29th floor and getting both wind noise(my room had a window A/C unit believe it or not)as well some noise from the heating system(forced hot-water). Luckily, I'm a deep-sleeper so these were only minor disturbances, but might be a pain for somebody else. The lobby of the hotel and elevators looked very nice, but the hallway on my floor was very old and dull looking. I had no major complaints and would consider staying again, especially because the price(I booked on-line for $120 plus taxes) was right.

          Another sunny day in NY with a little haze early on. I had booked a tour of the One World Observatory at 10.00am and as it was about a 5km walk (I chose to walk) I left the New Yorker at 9.00 for another early start.

          The walk was great, as it is basically go as far as you can down 9th Avenue until a bloody big building stops you walking …

          Officially my first full day in New York for this trip and I am buggered, and the knees are barking. I walked about 15km today in 2 separate trips.

          The first part was a walking tour of Central Park for 2 hours with a local guide named Deb. There were only 2 other people on this 9.00am tour, and they both were from Australia, bloody …
