It’s a great location for tourist stuff! but there isn’t a lot of stuff that locals will do in that area!

 

I went to a conference at the Affinia once and found it dated.  Some hotels I’d recommend that have a lot more character and nicer amenities that aren’t too far from penn station are the Eventi, the Carlton, and the bryant park hotel.  I looked at a LOT of hotels in the area for room blocks for my guests (Our reception was at 37th street and broadway) and liked these the best.

We stayed here and were not amazed with it for the price. We booked one of the larger rooms and found it to be quite dated. It said it slept up to 6 but we definitely would be dying for space with more than the 4 we had. It is in a GREAT central location and the doorman makes getting a taxi very easy. The concierge is nice but not super impressive. For the 6 days we were in New York we were usually one of 6 couples or groups vying for 1 or 2 people’s attention. The hotel bar was fun and we were there almost nightly for drinks and appetizers. There was also construction in the hotel that we weren’t notified about and went on from 6am throughout day. Overall, it wasn’t awful, for sure but we would probably stay a shorter period of time and pay more to stay at Yotel or somewhere similar.

I’ve stayed there before, like you said, the rooms are very small. It wasn’t all that modern but clean with good service. I think you have the right attitude, you’re not expecting much out of the hotel, but you’ll have an amazing time in NYC. I’ve stayed at places like Waldorf Astoria and the Ritz (only because my husband’s company paid for it) and I wasn’t impressed. The only places I loved are the Westin in Grand Central, the W in Union Square, and St Regis. But I may be biased towards Starwood properties. I think you did the right thing, to stay as close as all the places you want to visit/eat. You’ll be so tired from sightseeing and walking around so as long as you have a comfortable bed, you’ll be fine and ready to enjoy your cruise.
