Solo trip to NYC

The hotel was recommended by a friend as it is in a central location of Manhattan, and it is located in a great spot of Midtown. The hotel is located literally around the corner from the iconic Empire State Building, and is always an amazing view walking back to the hotel whether it be by day or night. Transport is very accessible. Penn station is only a few minutes from the hotel, airport shuttles stop at the corner of the hotel, taxis are always lined up at the front, and bus tours are located around the corner of the hotel. The look of the hotel itself is a bit old but the hotel is comfortable and accommodating. Although, it would have been good to be able to have access to heat while being there but I was advised that the central heating was turned off as it was spring. Staff were more than happy to bring blankets to my room though. I would recommend staying at the hotel as per the comments above. The only downer to the whole experience was that it does take a long time to check in at the hotel as it is rather busy. Expect the line to take at least 30 mins. On the day of my arrival it took an hour to check in, so arriving slightly early to your check in time might be the way to go.

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.

Location

I use this hotel principally for its location to the areas that I visit. While I am sure that there are good rooms since I have seen one previously, my room is usually not the best, perhaps because I always select a smoking room.

Stay at Hotel Pennsylvania

I appreciate that times are hard. All was clean and orderly with good maid service. How I would appreciate a lower rate for single and elderly occupants who find your rates of over $200 a night prohibitive for a stay of over 3 or 4 days. Thank you Richard Morse

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.
