of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Location is excellent. Close to Subway, short walk to Time Square and Madison Square Gardens. Staff is courteous and helpful. Lobby is clean but very tired, reminded me of someone's neglected basement. Cushions have seen better days. Rooms are clean but also tired lots of nicks and gauges on furniture. Comfortable bed, though.Great spot if you like to prepare your own meals, equiped kitchenette. They also provide breakfast but don't look for orange pekoe tea.
"Lovely stay in a central location with amazing views!"
Amazing stay right in the heart of Times Square with really easy public transport connections but also within walking distance of everything you'd want to see (Times Square, 5th avenue, Central Park). Thanks to James the bellman for sorting us out with a car back to JFK!
"We would definitely stay here again"
We had a great experience with this hotel and were glad that we had booked to stay here. Staff on Reception were lovely. The Room was a grand size with two Queen Beds in it. We found the Fridge and little kitchen area very handy. We had no Kettle so Microwaved the Water for a cup of tea as we didn't drink coffee. The bathroom had a great shower and loads of hot water which was great when you had four ladies sharing a room. The Breakfast was more than adequate considering it is included in the price of the stay. I loved the hot omelette in Pitta Bread. We were there for the Free evening food and drink two of the nights and that is a lovely addition to your stay. The hotel was a short walk from the Port Authority Bus Station and Subway. It was a 10 minute walk to Times Square and the same to Macy's so the location was ideal for us. I have recommended it to friends that are heading to New York this year. The only problem we had for our 5 night stay was the Lifts. We had no issue with them the mornings that we were up and about early but we did on the last morning when we were later going for Breakfast. They only seem to stop on Floors if there are people actually getting out as they kept skipping our floor for 20 full minutes. We were aware of this going so it was okay but we were glad that we only had a problem with it on one of the mornings.
"Fab New York stay"
Just returned from a fantastic 4 night stay that was booked with only 24 hours notice. Rooms are huge, especially given its NYC (or any major city for that matter) & the small kitchen area & refridgerator are an excellent addition! Bed & pillows are so comfortable which is exactly what you need after a long day walking around the city. Shower is fab with plenty of hot water. AC unit / heating all controlled by in room thermostat which is great when returning on a chilly, snowy evening! Wifi is also included & fast. Prior to arriving we were quite concerned about elevator & breakfast room problems mentioned in other reviews - we never experienced any issues whatsoever & our room was on 12th floor! Breakfast consists of fresh bagels / cereals / oatmeal / tea / coffee / juice / yoghurt. Hot option also available which varied each day bacon / home fries / omlette / sausage / hash brown / french toast, perfect to set you up until lunch. Cups are takeaway / coffee shop style so able to take a coffee to go as you set off on the days adventure! Location is perfect, short walk to nearest subway (42nd st / times sq) & to times square & other major sights. Very easy to reach from jfk via air train / subway. Lots of nearby places to eat & drink too if you're looking for somewhere nearby upon returning to hotel after long day sightseeing. Happy hour, with complimentary drinks & nibbles is a nice idea (though we were always busy out and about around NYC so never actually experienced this) Thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city, will definitely stay again! Thanks everyone at Element �
"Accesible & Nice Service"
This was the first time that I stayed at this Element. The location is great for attending meetings at the Javits. Rooms are nicely done and have a small kitchen, which adds flexibility. Bathroom is OK; be carefull when opeing the shower for you can flood the room, quite easy. Service from the FD to housekeeping is excellent and quite courteous. I sent my materials to the hotel and were managed quite well. They have 2 parkings in front and have special price for guests in one. The only issue, are the 3 elevators in the morning. For they offer breakfast, elevatorts are small and ussually busy in the mornings, with people checking out. In the morning plan ahead and give you some extra time. Ussally, there are Taxis in the corner at 8th avenue; just 100 meters away. Overall, it is a nice hotel.
