Unlike many of the hotels in Midtown Manhattan, the Ameritania Times Square isn't part of a huge chain. Since 1990, this non-smoking, boutique hotel has been offering personalized contemporary accommodations, and the gorgeous lobby features mahogany paneling, sparkling chandeliers, terrazzo marble floors, a fireplace and a lounge that stakes its reputation on its fine martinis. From the Beaux Arts exterior to the indulgent bath soaps by C.O. Bigelow in each room, the Ameritania offers all-around sophistication.

Neighborhood

With its location on West 54th Street, the Ameritania Times Square is a smoke-free hotel that is close to some of the most notable attractions in Midtown Manhattan. To the north, you'll find Columbus Circle and the exceptional restaurants of the Time-Warner Center. To the east, there's Radio City Music Hall and first-rate shopping along legendary Fifth Avenue. Head west to immerse yourself in the quirky, trendy vibe of Hell's Kitchen. And where nighttime entertainment is concerned, the hotel is on the same block as the Ed Sullivan Theater, home of The Late Show with David Letterman.

Hints and tips
Get pampered with massages and pedicures at Jenunesse spa, just a short walk away.

Draw the blackout curtains to transform your room into a tranquil space after a day spent exploring the bustle of New York.

One of the best affordable hotels in heart of time square

Very roomy for ny hotel standards, it is also very modern with a bar at the lobby. Not to mention the awesome location 1 minute walking from Angelo's pizza and David letterman show. 10 minute walk to time square (walking slow). After a long day of walking all over the city you get to relax in one of the most comfortable beds EVER lol!!! Employees and front desk are very helpful. Jeff was amazing and have us awesome tips and best ways to see the city very helpful. The price of the hotel is a steal compared to other outdated looking hotels with horrible views(a brick wall) near the same area and distance from time square. I would definitely stay here again on the next trip and highly recommend staying here

Great place!

Great location! Super clean!! Staff was amazing! Doormen had cars waiting or grabbed Taxis. Subway is a block away, Central Park 4 blocks, Times Square 2 blocks. Ask for an inside room, super quiet.

Ask the doorman to have a car ready, if you leave the city it's a flat rate so it's nicer than a taxi.

Nice Hotel

The location is good, just a short walk to Times Square and Central Park. The subway station is not too far away either, about 4 blocks so 10 minutes walk. It was a bit rowdy outside on our first night as the hotel is situated next to a nightclub and the road was busy and noisy too although we did get used to it. The bedroom is a good enough size for two people and the bathroom had a decent shower. There were no tea and coffee making facilities which was a shame. We had a look at the breakfast that was on offer but decided not to go for it as it was a bit expensive for cereal, toast and cakes. The staff were pleasant and the doormen helped us with instructions on how to get back to the airport. The d├ęcor was modern and minimalist and facilities such as a hairdryer and umbrella were available. Overall a nice hotel but next time we would probably stay somewhere closer to a subway station.

Perfect Location, Tiny Room, Limited Amenities

An outstanding location that is between Times Square and Columbus Circle & Lincoln Center, without being as crowded and noisy as either. It is literally next door to the David Letterman show theater. Short walks to Met Opera, Jazz @ Lincoln Center, Restaurant Row, Theater District, and 5th Ave. shopping destinations such as Saks, BG, Tiffany, etc. Go one block north one block west and you're at the the original SoupMan made famous on Seinfeld too. Subway stops for BDENQR are 2 blocks away; 1 and C are three blocks away. Room is TINY - there is a bed, two small nightstands (without drawers), one set of two drawers with a soft top (i.e. can't be used as a desk), and a huge floor-standing mirror that's pretty useless because you can't stand in front of it and see how your outfit looks because there's no room between it and the bed (I'm slender and I had to turn sideways to walk next to the bed). The room appeared to have been recently renovated. Clean, and everything worked. So: no chairs, no desk, no mini-fridge. Mini ironing board with iron. Small closet with ample quality hangers. Lamps are underpowered, so room was dark except late afternoon getting sun's reflection off the glass building across the street. Bathroom is good size. Shower has "half door" and choice of either straight-down rainfall head or hand-held. HVAC is controlled by thermostat. Hotel has a lounge with bar. No business center. They offer to print your boarding pass if you email it to their front desk. I stacked a couple of discounts so two nights came in just under three hundred.

Flute Midtown, a speakeasy-style bar that hosts the famous "Club Wit's End" jazz/swing-dance parties the last Saturday of every month, is 300 feet away at 205 W 54th.

Get what you pay for.

Took my wife to New York for her 40th birthday, booked the Ameritania due to its location and price all seemed great when we booked in but when we went to the bedroom all was not great at all. We were at the back of the hotel looking at a brick wall below us was a rubbish tip that belonged to the bar next door there was also a kitchen fan on the roof of the bar that was turned on at 09:00 and off at 23:00 so we got woken in the morning to a loud humming noise and had to fall asleep to the same sound, asked to get moved but the room they were moving us to was no bigger than a box room. So if I was going back to New York I would pay the extra money to stay at a better place so as the saying goes you always get what you pay for.

Excellent location

Staff are excellent and very helpful. Did not eat at the hotel although that seemed reasonably priced for breakfast. Rooms were good size. It maybe a cultural thing, but I found it strange that the room had 2 double beds but no drawers for clothes. The hanging space was adequate for 4 nights, but only 2 very shallow drawers in the bathroom and no other drawer space. Location is what makes this place so good, just around the corner from Times 'Square', a great deli just up the same street and good eating places in Times Square and in side roads.

New York Trip

We arrived about 5 hrs early the bellman took our bags they were stored for free. We then came back at 2pm an hour before check in. Due to the room not being ready we were given free breakfast during our stay, free WIFI, and 2 cupcakes. The room was better than the 4 star we were staying at before coming here. The staff was really friendly and answered any questions we had. We were within 3 blocks of where we wanted to be located. The subway was only a block away. The room was spacious and clean.
