"Annual Christmas Holiday weekend!"
As always, my family thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations at this chic, upscale NYC hotel! Service, room, location and awesome buffet breakfast were spot on. Highly recommend the Renaissance Time Square!
I took my wife here for her 40th birthday to watch Wicked and Lucky Guy (Both shows were great, btw). These rooms exude luxury, especially the bed. For the City that never sleeps, this bed was incredibly comfortable! We had so much site seeing to do but it took everything to get out of bed because it was so comfortable.
"Beautiful Hotel with an AMAZING view"
We had a girls trip early November and stayed at this hotel. The staff was incredibly nice. The view from the bar down to Times Square was so amazing. We spent a few evenings there having either a night cap or an about to hit the town cocktail. The staff in the bar were so sweet and after just a few visits new us and gave us a great table with a view of Times Square you just cannot beat! The rooms were clean and had wonderful views of the city. The subway was right around the corner and of course you can't beat the entertainment of Times Square at 1am. Price seemed pretty much average for all of the hotels we checked out before booking but the staff and views made it worth every penny!
"Weekend trip - request a room NOT facing Times Square"
My sister and I stayed here in November. We were visiting friends for the week for a family celebration. We checked in around 2:00 PM on Friday and were able to access the room immediately. We were on the 10th floor in a 2 bedded room. We faced Times Square. There is a tall building across the street with bright neon lights that change color. The drapes did not close all the way, and so we had purple, red, orange, green and blue light flooding the room. If you are a light sleeper or are disturbed by music and lights, request a room not facing Times Square. We used a "white noise" app on our cell phone and that drowned out the music/cars/yelling in Times Square. The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious, especially for NYC. There was room for a desk and wall unit with built in drawers, with a laptop size safe in the drawer; there was a night stand between the 2 beds, a small chair by the windows that had a TV tray type of thing in front of it (we used it as a suitcase stand) and the closet was an armoire built in to the wall. There were plenty of hangers for 2 women, an iron and board and a mini-fridge. The bathroom had only one sink but lots of counter space and a cubby system underneath to store towels, toilet paper, our toiletries, etc. After the first night, housekeeping gave us 2 of each of the Aveda bath items, so that was very nice (we tipped $5 each night for housekeeping and got a thank you note from the housekeeper - nice.) You check in on the ground floor, and then take the elevator across from check-in to the 5th floor, where the lobby is located, then cross the lobby to another elevator bank to reach the guest rooms. There is a sign in the elevator saying that you need to insert your room key into a security slot to run the elevator, but we didn't have to do that the whole weekend, so I'm not sure why the sign is there. The lobby floor has a nice bar/lounge. It was convenient when we needed to grab something quickly after shopping all day, before heading to our late afternoon family event. They serve small bites like hummus and crudites, and other noshy things. The bar overlooks Times Square, though, and so each time that we were there, people had commandeered more tables than they needed in order to have multiple people in their party be able to face the view. Pretty rude. The front desk staff were friendly, the concierge gave good info re: which subway line to take to our various destinations and the doorman got us a taxi. This hotel is a solid choice for the Times Square area, especially if you want a little more space than most NYC shoe box sized hotel rooms. Full disclosure: My sister and her husband are Marriott time share owners, so we used Marriott points to book the room for the weekend.
"Great location and nice room"
Hotel is right on times square. Rooms are much bigger than most hotels in Manhattan. Staff are friendly and rooms are clean. My room had a great view of Times Square. Food in the restaurant is good and walking distance to Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral and to a lot of restaurants in the area. Will highly recommend this hotel.
