“Great central location, but charge you for Wifi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights in New York and wanted a hotel central to all tourist attractions. The metro stop was right outside the hotel so conveinient to get about in new york even in the snow.
Concierge were truely helpful and an asset to the hotel. They will book shows for you, find you restaurants and provide you all the general information with maps for your stay in NY. Best to ask them rather than reception staff as they are alot faster at delivering information.
The rooms were clean and restful. We had 2 double beds but a small sized window which overlooked a parking lot in the side street. I did ask in advance for a room high up with good city views but we ended up on the 6th floor instead. I did wander who occupied the other 20 odd floors??
The only downside is this hotel charges like most others in NY for Wifi use. You can connect to most Wifi's at local cafe's and restaurants for free on your phone.
Tip: We didn't have breakfast here. Go out in Times Sqaure and choose one of the local diners and brasseries to eat in. We found this quaint little french one 2 blocks away which had the most exquisite breakfast menu.
Overall, nice hotel, clean rooms good ensuite facilities (with a sliding door-no lock). Definately worth a return visit.

Room Tip: Tip: Ask for a room high up with city views-and make sure it is higher than 6th floor

Had a perfect stay. Booked King Bed Deluxe Corner Room ($499 night) received upgrade to panoramic 21st floor King Bed Sky view Avenue Studio ($799 night) looking East over 8th Ave.

Sky view Avenue Studio. Terrific city view and a bit of the Hudson to the North W and gives you that NYC feeling. Style and comfort of furnishings we luxurious. King Bed one of the most comfortable I’ve experienced anywhere. 100% clean room. Turn down service is a nice touch. Heavy glass and thick sound deadening window covers keep most of the noise out.

Location. Facility makes an excellent impression with a sophisticated atmosphere. Nice to stay at a new facility and all interaction with staff was friendly and professional and one fellow even refused a tip. Subway lines at IC + Times Square. Steps to Theaters, 3 min walk to Times Square, 20 min to Central Park. Hassle free check-in/valet parking/check-out. Never used restaurant/bar but only because busy off site. Menu looks good, pricy but it should be. Concierge very helpful. Valet parking $58 w/tax per day no in/out

Area. Some portions of the area had a Carnival vibe but it is Times Square after all. Area is saturated with Police and felt more patrolled than DC. Appears safer than many cities but you still need to keep you’re guard up.

Enjoyable stay with no issues. Probably only place I’ll stay in NYC if only for a clean, central location.....all the other niceties are a bonus.

Room Tip: Email/Call ahead for any special requests. If you want the quiets rooms book facing the river. If yo...

Great hotel if you need to stay close to Times Square! Good looking lobby, had a large room with a great bed, bathroom was very big too. Very clean and quiet! Was on the 22nd floor and had a good view over the city.
Everything in brand new and very clean. I love the design, modern, contemporary but not eccentric!
Room service as well as instant service were very friendly and helpful! The food ordered was very good too!
However the negative point was the staff at the door, that spent more time laughing, joking together then helping the guests getting cabs, unloading luggage or finding directions. The big disappointment was that I was planning to extend my stay for 10 nights ( !!! ), and the rate quoted by in house reservations was higher than almost all other hotels in midtown (Hyatt, Marriot, Crown Plaza, Dream...), so I changed hotel, unfortunately.

Outstanding Concierge service, they were able to help me out with absolutely everything! Always friendly, specially Zizka!

I will get back to the Interconti for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor

I had an executive level room on a high floor with a pretty good view, blocked by the oversized TV. The room was on the small side, and I wish it would have had a bath tub. There is also no spa at this hotel. Tod English has done a thoughtful job with the restaurant and the food was good for a hotel, not exceptional. The bar, lounge and restaurant set up was adequate, nothing special, but the service was fast and correct. There is no lobby area to sit in at this hotel, though the lounge off the lobby has a section with soft furniture. The hotel and room I had was very quiet. I thought the best thing was the location for using the subway. Walking to Times Square is but 3 blocks away, not far from many other sites.

Room Tip: Ask to see a couple of rooms.
