of TripAdvisor Travelers recommend this hotel
Great hotel and location, although it is located in the heart of the time square, when you are in the room you do not hear anything. The rooms are good with feather pillows, fridge and safe lock. The hotel location is great, close to many places and with subway station on the same block. The only down point was the members lounge that was close several times due to private events.
"What's Going' on Here'"
It's not like a regular Renaissance Hotel. No Concierge Lounge; garish public spaces. It's half a block off the north end of Times Square, so great for theater. I t think the staff is a bit more focused on keeping the hordes of passing tourists out than helping guests, but they need to be. The rooms are smaller than in a regular Renaissance but otherwise similar. The decorator who chose the carpets and did the lobby lounge should be taken out behind the barn and .... .
"Perfect location, spacious and quiet room ( for NYC)"
Have been visiting NYC for 35 years at all different times of year. This hotel was one of the nicest hotels, with the best location for the West side/ theater district. The room was quiet and very large for a standard room in NYC. And I agree the view from the bar of Times Square is amazing. Will be back!
"Drinks at the bar"
Still the best kept secret of Times Square. Drinks and snacks at the bar of the renaissance with perfect Times Square views. Go at a quieter time like mid afternoon. Decent cocktails and snacks, beer, wine, etc. reasonable prices.
"In the heart of Times Square"
This hotel is right in the heart of Times Square and is one block from Radio City Music Hall. Close to restaurants and shopping. The M&Ms and Hershey stores are steps away. Close to Broadway shows. It's about 15 blocks to/from Penn Station/Madison Square Garden. Hotel was quiet considering it's location. I couldn't hear any of the city sounds. It's unique design made it different than any other Renaissance I've stayed in. You enter the Lobby from the street level but take an elevator up to the R Lounge to get to the elevators that take you to the rooms. Can be a little confusing at first. The lounge was very modern and had a nice view of Times Square. You could sit outside and enjoy the sights and sounds (and lights) of the city. There's a concierge service on this level also. It's clean and well maintained. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was modern with large sink and shower. Staff was friendly and helpful. There's security at this hotel and you must show your room key to enter in the evening. I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. Most NYC rooms are small and don't provide very good views. I would return here again and I recommend it.
