Review of "Travel Inn Manhattan, New York City"
Have worked in the Travel Industry for over 10 years, now a stay at home mum looking after my hardworking hubby and son.
I was not originally meant to be staying at the Travel Inn as I had booked the four of us into the Hotel Newton which was located on 2528 Broadway and had a 1 star rating and at the time I did not realise how far this hotel was located from the Times Square area, and on arrival we were all beginning to worry about the distance to all the tourist facilities. On this occasion we were lucky, due to problems with existing guests we arrived at the hotel to check-in only to be told that there was no room and we were being transferred to a better hotel in a better location......BRILLIANT!!The Travel Inn was our next location and the Hotel Newton even paid for us to have a transfer over to the hotel which was another added bonus, so off we popped in another yellow cab to the Travel Inn.
As you walk through the reception area you are greeted by a member of staff who checks your booking as we had been transferred by the Hotel Newton they already had all the details that they required and the check-in process was extremely smooth, we provided names and address of each person staying in the Quad room and I provided a credit card imprint should there be any charges once we check-out and leave the room.
The lift is located next to reception and although is small fits at least 3 people comfortably with their entire luggage or 5 Adult passengers. One of my friends has a fear of lifts so he decided to take the stairs up to the room.
515 West, 42nd Street, New York 10036. If you have never ever been to New York then this will barely make any sense to you as it didn't to me when I booked the Hotel Newton which was miles away so to guide those of you that haven't been before, The Travel Inn is located just 3 blocks away from Times Square taking approximately 15 minutes to get into the centre of Times Square from our hotel, it is also located close to the subway which is a fantastic form of transport to get you to all of the sights as quickly as possible.
The hotel is also 6 blocks away from Grand Central Station offering excellent connections to the John F Kennedy Airport which is approx 30kms away.
The Travel Inn has 159 rooms located on 6 floors that are well maintained and well decorated and all come with basic amenities that you require when on holiday and put it this way when you go to somewhere as magical as New York you do not spend hardly any time in your hotel room as there is just so much to see and do.
Non -smoking rooms
Television complete with satellite
Radio Alarm Clock
Direct Dial Telephone
Ensuite with bath and over head shower
Security chain to the door with peep hole for added security
Large built in wardrobes with overhead shelf providing plenty of storage options
Desk area complete with stationary and drawer storage and dataport
Bedside table with drawer storage
Iron and Ironing Board
As there were four of us we decided to stay in a Quad room which would work out slightly cheaper than getting two separate rooms and we thought if we planned a schedule for use of the bathroom there would not be any problems, we were issued with two key cards for entry in to the rooms and you could also leave them with reception if you did not want to carry them about with you which was an added bonus as I have a habit of misplacing things.Earliest Check-in is 3pm and check-out is approximately 12pm but if you need a late check-out this can be arranged at the reception area, they may charge subject to the time required and provided that they do not have new guests arriving that require that room.
Overall my opinion of this hotel is fantastic and I considered going back there this year but there was not the availability and as I was transferred by the Hotel Newton am not sure how much the actual stay was as this hotel was a 2 star rating compared to the Newton's 1 star rating so there surely was a difference in the cost.
I priced it for next year for the same time that I am going this year 30 Nov and it gave me a costing of £224 per person for a total of 5 nights stay which is excellent value for money as good hotels at good prices are hard to come by in New York.
