Hotel Pennsylvania

We booked this hotel for two nights but only stayed one. It is very old and tired and not clean or comfortable. It was not a nice experience. I cannot recommend this hotel.

Is location worth the cost and trouble?

Slow service, front desk took about an hour to respond to anything. Keys did not worked on next day of stay, so had to wait again to get fixed. Was cold and unpleasant to stay there.

Old fashioned and dark room but awesome location!!!

Location wise, the Hotel Penn is awesome!!! It's right in the heart of everything including subways and shops. The room itself was really dark and old fashioned and it was really noisy too due to all the tourists coming and going at all hours. I noticed there were alot of young travellers staying at this hotel too so there was a lot of yelling and loud talking in the hallways late at night. The line to check into the hotel is really, really long and some people were waiting up to an hour to check in. Bear this in mind when you book your flights and try not to arrive in the morning when it's the busiest time of all.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There's a convenience store half a block down on 7th Street on the same side as the hotel between 34th and 35th that has a buffet of various foods for a good price. I recommend eating here to save money.

Convenient hotel

It seems to get older and more tired each year. The room is comfortable enough, but was unable to change room even though tap dripped in the shower and the cold tap could not be turned on over the sink. Still, it is close to Penn Station, so it has that going for it.

Avoid at all costs

We got to the hotel at 2am, there was 1 person behind the desk and 3 groups of people waiting to be checked in. This process took over 35 minutes. When we finally got the room key we headed to the room through the dirty corridors, we were disgusted at the state of the room, dirty, poorly decorated and falling apart, the tiny bed was old and uncomfortable. We went back down stairs waited in line for another 20 minutes and changed to a slightly better room. On the second day at around 6 pm while my girlfriend and I were getting ready to go out two newly arrived guests used a key card to let themselves into our room. It appears as if they had double booked our room, thankfully we were there to protect our stuff. I rang the front desk and told them what happened and they told me I was mistaken!!! That there's no way any other guests could have walked in!!! After a futile argument we left the hotel to go and see a show. After we got back we were locked out of our room. I went down stairs to go to the front desk which was about 30 people deep.....lucky I persuaded a security guard to let us in so we didn't have to spend 2 hours inline. The internet is $10.95 a day and is slow and almost unusable. I'm not normally one to write a bad review if I have a problem I deal with the hotel directly. when we went to check out I had full intention of telling the staff what I thought only to be confronted with a huge line and 3 staff slowly checking people out. In the end I dropped the keys off and just left, I had already spent too much of my time in New York in this hotel.

OUTSTANDING POSITION

outstanding position. Hotel is an "old style" accomodation (should receive a good renewal) and compare my last vacation is worsted. I would recommend it to a friend looking for an normal-regular accomodation not if looking for luxury. But, in my opinion, the hotel worths the money you pay for it. It is Midtown Manhattan-New York.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Jersey garden is an excellent outlet. Not so famous compare to Woodbury but with outstanding bargain. Furthermore also transportation cost less than Woodbury. To be recommend.
