Hotel Pennsylvania is very well situated for rail and subway access. Just across road from rail station with access to Newark Liberty Airport and short walk to Empire State building. Breakfast in R Caffe was very good and very close by. Subway access very good (but hot) and easy to use Metro Card machine, takes both cash and card payments. Metro (subway) was safe with no hassles, just pre-determine what line and what direction to go using map and it's quite easy. Hotel can take very long to check in and out at peak times, expect 30 mins + waiting. Very big but quite run down and small rooms. Don't expect much in terms of luxury, but well situated so this can be overlooked. Jacks Everything Shop is very close by (next to R Caffe) for anything you need to buy. Nothing is supplied in the room so get drinks and snacks here for the fridge. Recommended stay. Pre-book all the sites you want to see to ensure access and go early just as they open. All Will Call and E-Tickets worked faultlessly booked through the main venue web sites. Although crowded at times people were reasonable to walk amongst, probably better than London. Street traders are the best place to get good deals on hats, shirts and tops and anything else touristy stuff and good fun to deal with. Eating out is very expensive so we used the local shop and stayed in the room after long days out. Great Stay! Collapse

Ok. Well my first trip to New York and told that the Penn(as it is called) was a good bet and reasonable for a hotel in the heart of NY. I stayed in room 1689 The hotel is very old. Lots of character and always busy. Its like the league of nations passing thru their doors. We had an issue with the bathroom fluro first few days but all good after that. The room was very basic but perfect.....coz i am there to be out and about not sitting in a hotel room finding fault with little things. Information desk is a good start and the girls will help u plan ur day. Best thing i loved about the hotel is that after walking the streets all day....the City Perk coffee shop in the lobby which is open 24/7 makes great coffee!!. The hotel is right opposite Madison Square Garden so this hotel is great for a base. If u dont mind the odd light going out,the odd things that can can go wrong in a very old hotel then book in here....it is not as bad as some people make it out to be. When u have travelled to places like India and China and stayed in some very dodgy places....The Pennsylvania is a little gem and a good place to base urself....Oh...and remember to ask about the "Valet Doors" which r on every room and date back years..quite quirky and interesting! You r also across from Pennsylvania Underground station...Enjoy! Collapse

After having our first room with the previous occupants take away papers, wet dirty towels and also their old bedding we were given a second room. Extremely basic but clean towels everyday, beds made up everyday and nice shower. On checkout hotel tried to charge our card twice but staff sorted misunderstanding.

I had to spend one night in this dump because my NYC business trip get extended by a day. Even though it was after 8:00 pm and not crowded, the check in process was eternal. When I finally got to my room, the key didn’t work. I picked up the hallway phone. The man who answered said I would have to go to the front desk, and get a new room. The front desk clerk was surly, and implied that it was somehow my fault the key didn’t work. Eventually, she gave me a new key for the same room. This one worked. My room was shabby and run-down, but clean. The view was of an airshaft, and the air conditioning unit was as loud as a bus. Besides a television, there were zero amenities in the room. Zero. The next morning, since I had charged nothing to the room, I took advantage of the hotel’s express check out service. I put my key in an envelope, and dropped it in the drop off box. Thus, no receipt. Imagine my surprise when I got my next credit statement, and discovered the hotel had added a $21 charge to my account. No explanation, just an additional $21 charge. I called my credit card company, and challenged the charge. A week later, they told me the issue had been resolved. The bulk of the hotel’s guests seem to be young, overseas tourists. Perhaps the hotel thinks it can get away with planting bogus extra charges on a clientele like this that will be far away, and less inclined to challenge them when they find out. I sure hope not. The only reasons I’m giving this place two stars are because of its convenient location, and I because actually had a good night’s sleep there—dark, quiet (I turned off the AC unit) and comfortable. It’s true you get what you pay for, and this place is inexpensive compared to other NYC hotels, but cheap doesn’t have to be terrible. Collapse
