Best hotel in good location

Plymouth, United States

This hotel is in a very good location walking distance to time square, bryant park, macys and shopping on 34th street. Large rooms very comfortable bed and room service- quick and very good food. Very cool roof top bar even open in the winter.

Excellent Service, Amazing Rooms, Incredible Location

We have been to NYC serveral times. I wish we would have found this gem sooner. Check in was a breeze--we walked in, were ushered to Cynthia and had our room and keys in 3 minutes AND we were there hours before check in. The room was large and beautiful. We asked for extra pillows and received 4 immediately. And these weren't the standard small pillows. They provided full king sized pillows that were amazing. Need a taxi? They will get you one in a minute? Need recommendations? The concierge made great recommendations. Make sure to also go up to the rooftop bar and check out the view of Times Square. You can't get any closer making the location ideal for access to Times Square, the theatres, shopping, close to Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall. And it's quiet which was a great surprise based on the proximity to Times Square.
