The Pennsylvania Hotel New York is located at 33rd Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan. Catch up on work at the 24-hour business center, which features printers and high-speed internet access, or after a long day at a meeting use your complimentary guest passes to work out at Bally Total Fitness. Located next door to the hotel, it offers up-to-the-minute workout equipment, as well as a swimming pool and spa.

Affordable and within walking distance of various New York tower blocks like the Empire State Building and the vibrant oasis of Madison Square Garden, the Pennsylvania is a smart choice for leisure guests too, with central rooms and a budget price tag.
     
Sometimes known as the Hotel Pennsylvania or Hotel Penn, the accommodations here were opened in 1919 and have had several other names over the years, including the Statler-Hilton Hotel, after the original manager Ellsworth Statler.

Neighborhood
At the intersection of New York City's main tourist areas, such as the Broadway Theater district and Times Square, why not step out of the grand entrance at the Hotel Pennsylvania, turn to the right or left, and see where the sidewalk takes you? The Chrysler Building and Macy's are close at hand, and it's easy to reach the fashionable Chelsea and West Village neighborhoods from here too.
Hints and tips
Canine enthusiasts should plan a visit to coincide with the Westminster Dog Show, an annual event where dogs are put through their paces at nearby Madison Square Garden. Even better, the hotel itself is dog-friendly and there are no size restrictions, although there is an additional fee for your pet to stay. Make sure you check with the front desk before bringing along your furry friend.

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

Great location

This is a historic hotel. So don't expect things to be brand new. But the location is amazing, right across from Penn Station and MSG. When in NYC, you have to ask yourself: how much time do you really spend in the room, anyway?? (If you're like me-- it is mostly just to sleep!) So I would say I had a very positive experience with this hotel. It has a lot of character, and again has an amazing location.

Mistake

Unless you are traveling to NY without any $$ (bad idea), you're going to dislike the experience with this hotel. It's disgusting, dirty, small -- even by NY standards. I could see it for students on a budget or tourists on a serious budget but otherwise, you'll do MUCH better by spending a couple extra bucks --NY has some fantastic hotels and this is closer to a hostile.

Location, Location!!

The location of this hotel is ideal!! It's within walking distance of many major attractions, Times Square & Empire State Building, Macys & Madison Square Garden are across the street, also across the street is a major subway hub for places that aren't so close. The hotel itself is a bit dated, but the room I had (1142) was clean & the bed was comfy. I do advise to bring your own towels, theirs a very small! For the value & location I reccomend this hotel!

Good for short period time staying

My friend and I went to NYC for a little something to do. The hotel staff is very nice and patient, but the check-in line is so long the staff is not enough for there to check-in, which slows us a little. Rooms are not that fancy, probably because the hotel is old.
