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.

Location

The location was awesome. In two short day we got to hit almost everything. And we walked the entire time. The only bad thing about the trip was the rooms. Very old, shower was short and there was plaster falling off the ceiling. But everything else was awesome.

better than expected

The location was great. Walking distance to time square. Good neighborhood. We booked a king room and had more than enough space. Could have put another bed in the room. The only flaw in the room is that part of the bathroom wall had water damage. Not a big deal to me since the bedroom was big and clean. We expected a small dirty room after reading the reviews and since it was one of the cheapest prices in the timesquare area, but after staying here we are more than satisfied with the hotel and will gladly book here again.

You can arrive early and leave bags with hotel for $4 per bag. You can also check out and leave the bags with the hotel. This gives you the freedom to enjoy your day without having to worry about carrying around bags.

Good enough

I booked the hotel because I was attending a event at the Madison Square Garden, at the location was a plus. The hotel is just across the street to the Madison Square Garden. Nevertheless, rooms are small. It's an old building

Shopping trip

there was 3 of us on a shopping trip. The hotel was in walking distance to almost every thing. We could not fault that, The hotel itself was kept very clean as we had clean towels and sheets every day, It was a bit dated but Ok

Good location

Stayed 1 night during a busy holiday season, and it worked out well. The proximity to Penn Station and numerous points of interest, along with the reasonable rooms and rates make this hotel a winner.
