Great New Hotel & Location A review of Manhattan Centre Hotel
The Good: Great midtown location, nice clean, new rooms and bathrooms. Great beds, soft sheets, adequate-sized rooms (even get a desk!) Very helpful staff. Our room had a nice view of the Rockefeller Center Plaza Park and the Christmas Tree. Overall a wonderful place for my wife and I to stay during our first trip to NYC. Relative to the other hotels in the price range we paid ($330), we were supremely satisfied with the hotel. The exercise room is suprisinlgy well equipped. Loved the bottled water on every floor.
The Bad: Funky check-in system, but the clerk was very helpful navigating us through the process. When we inquired about calling a taxi to take us to the airport (1 day in advance), they suggested a car service for only $15 more. We agreed and set a time - but the car never showed!! We waited 30 minutes and then hailed a cab and left. Obviously, we weren't charged, but still - it was nerve racking! So, when you go to the airport, don't rely on the hotel to get a car for you - it is actually easier to just walk outside and hail a cab.
Bottom Line: Great hotel, this is where I will stay next time I go to NYC.
