Great location to everything including Central Park, restaurants, Time Square. Old hotel with great charm. Staff well mannered, professional and quick to your requests. Many big name hotels around the Salisbury that costs much much more. I definitely would rate this hotel as an excellent choice for a New York visit whether business or pleasure.
The pictures on Expedia and other websites show a nice looking hotel. They are slightly misleading. The hotel is nice, but very dark everywhere inside. My friend and I likened it to a modern, chic crypt. The rooms are quite nondescript and basic looking with thinning carpet. I think that it is very overpriced, you are really only paying for a prime location but we were expecting more.
The rooms are tiny, beds are comfortable but the air conditioning is terribly noisy and the water pressure in the shower isn't great. Breakfast is extortionate and I have never paid for so many unknown taxes after checking out (although this seems to be the norm in NY).
It's fine for a base to sleep and safely store your belongings, but if you are looking for a more well rounded place I'd go somewhere else. I would only stay here again because I now know where everything is nearby.
"Perfectly located, well priced and great amenitie."
The hotel was lovely, well appointed and very comfortable.
But the one thing that made the difference was the staff, in particular Iris, she was absolutely delightful and so accommodating with directions and recommendations. She IS The Jewel!
The brightest lights of this big city are found in the Broadway - Times Square neighborhood. Experience live entertainment, such as musicals and plays, or tour Rockefeller Center. The iconic St. Patrick's Cathedral graces the entire block of Fifth and 50th and welcomes more than 5 million visitors each year. This thriving area filled with pedestrians also hosts NBC, ABC, MTV, and NASDAQ.
