    Totally Inflexible”

    Bad form from management. I had to move the dates of my travel due to meetings being moved and was even prepared to extend my stay longer for their trouble. The hotel had a month's notice to find new tenants but refused to accommodate and was more than happy to take my money and not offer a service. All of my business associates and family members will hear about this. Terrible service!

    Just ok - expect to pay extra”

    This was a good location right next to Times Square. Ended up being more expensive than what it was initially advertised as. The hotel was terrible at communication. I messaged them multiple times in April before my stay in May and still have no response. The took a deposit but didn’t provide any digital receipt or proof that they had taken it aside from my bank statement (which I have sent multiple emails about prior to my trip) when I checked in they just swiped my card and took the full amount including the deposit and didn’t give me any receipts for anything when I was there. I’m still chasing this up. The room in itself was fine. Clean although the bed was tiny for 2 people. I’d probably avoid this if you don’t want unexpected charges.

    Love the “fitness room” i checked in to. It was clean and the size was just the right fit. I’m definitely going to stay at the hotel when i decide to go to New York again. Close to times Square just a walking distance of 10 mins or less. Close to M&M store too. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. Looking forward to our next stay!

    Worst staff”

    On arrival, was given a standard twin room instead of having paid for a family room. On the second day, transferred us back to the family room. Both the day and night shift staff promised to waive the price difference and even showed me that she had entered into the computer system, but that was just a show. Didn't happen. Still being charged full price for the family room. On the second day, asked us to wait at the hotel until the room is ready (time not given) and to transfer our luggage ourselves to the family room, despite the luggage already been packed and zipped up. After we protested and scolded them, saying that was due to their mistake, then only they agreed to transfer for us. On checkout, asked them whether there was any anything else. The reception staff said no. On return, found my credit card charged for taxes. Understood that this was chargeable, but at least have the courtesy to inform and provide a receipt. Location is good. Very near to Times Square.

    Location, Friendly Staff, Nice bar

    I enjoyed my stay at TRYP. The best thing... Location! You walk out the front door and 50 meters away is Times Square and all the joys it has to offer. Cafe's, restaurants, bars and sightseeing. To think you're so close yet don't pay anything like the prices to stay in the square was a pleasant surprise. The hotel was undergoing a refurbishment at the time I stayed, however my room had been done and was clean and well presented. I'm sure once completed it will be even better throughout. The staff were polite and helpful and assisted me when I needed them. Enjoy your stay at TRYP Times Square.

    Management, Service & Location

    I want to complement the Management of the Best Western Plus President Hotel at Times Square for running a tight ship. This is NYC and it must be extremely to work with the tight spaces, helter-skelter pace of life and tremendous turnover of guests. The Management should be praised for doing a good job because despite all that the hotel hums along and gets things done without the angst and brashness I sometimes come across in NYC. Importantly, I was both very relieved and delighted to recover our passports, cash and valuables that I left in the safe 5 hours after checking out of the hotel. I commend the Manager and his team for their integrity and quick response to recover my belongings when I called them.

    wifi was down for whole day and the hotel asked the tenant to call the internet company instead of they calling. This cause overseas traveller extra phone bill from using their phone in the room to call. This is unfair. Other than that, the hardware are ok.

    Good location but extremely small room ”

    Received keys to an un-cleaned room twice! Front desk were extremely sorry and blamed housekeeping but I think both departments has to work better to ensure seamless hotel operations. Hotel lobby looks new and clean however rooms were extremely small. Furniture's were quite old. Cleanliness not up to par to the price we've paid for this hotel. There are additional state taxes which were charged when check out despite Agoda's claim about covering taxes into the total price. There are also charges of $2 per luggage for storage. Lifts were extremely slow and not able to withstand the amount of people checking out in the morning! Waited almost 20 mins for an available lift, by pressing up button. Housekeeping staffs are quite rude and discerning having to argue with management when hotel guests are around.

    Excellent staff and location, but watch out for the 'urban tax' extras”

    Having booked through Agoda and all confirmation clearly indicating that the price we had paid was fully inclusive, we then checked out after 3 days to be hit with an additional $85 'urban tax' fee! This was not the hotel's fault as it is state policy and none of the money would go to the hotel, however we did think it was a incredibly misleading by Agoda and will be cautious about booking with them in the future.

    Fantastic location, clean and tidy, comfortable rooms. Although bathroom was too small and poorly laid out so door hit toilet. Caution comes from trying to get the hotel to answer any questions. I have emailed them three times but never had an answer. Research the Taxes situation so not caught out but most of all book the hotel through a different site. Do not use Agoda.

    We loved it. ”

    When we arrived they upgraded us from a double bed to queen. It wasn’t check in time so we dropped our bags and went for a short walk to Times Square. When we came back they upgraded us to a king. That room had a loud air conditioner, no fridge but no WiFi so they offered to move us (913). They moved us to 1413 which was bigger, had a fridge and was my better. We stayed for 9 nights. It was always clean and we loved it. Great location. Perfect for everything. It was recommended by a friend for the cloud beds and they lived up to her recommendation. Do it!!!

    Times Square at its best”

    Great hotel staff were very nice and allowed us an early check in . The room had comfortable bunk beds which my kids enjoyed. Quite clean, bathrooms small but clean and adequate and well planned.Walking distance from time square,Hershey's and M&M. Bigbus tours start within 100 meters of the hotel and best economical way of exploring newyork, we took the family 3 day pack on bigbus. There are many tour operators but take big bus. We enjoyed great breakfast at diner and grill which had great variety and great rates , just across the hotel, The hotel breakfast is expensive and Dosent give the spread for 20 dollars. The 10 dollar mini breakfast is not worth it as there is nothing in it. I would recommend this hotel , great place to be in the middle of times square

    The Perfect Location ”

    The hotel offered a great location at an affordable price. The room was spacious and comfortably fit the three of us. Times Square is just 3 minutes walk, absolutely unbelievable. Convenient stores, restaurants, shopping outlets and theatres surround you. There will never be a boring day. The staff did come across a tad bit cold. We did have a small incident and they just seemed apologetic and nothing more. We were there during the Christmas season, a little more spirit would have been great. Having said that, I would still definitely stay here again the next time I am in the city.

    Good location, not so happy with the rest”

    The hotel was nice and has cool decor; however the rooms are super dark. It will say city view and we looked at walls (which is normal in NY but it shouldn't say city views then). Cleaning was not very good. I found pieces of grapes in the carpet and I never ate grapes, which means they had not really vacuumed in a long time. We got a stained towel as well. The elevator was also incredibly dirty all the time. You have to pay extra to store your bags after check out.
