Second time staying there...

And it completely changed my opinion about the hotel! The check-in person gave us a free upgrade from a regular double bed to a room with 2 double beds. The bathroom still looked very old, but it was clean. The location is definitely great and it is not really noisy because of the streets.

Hotel Pennsylvania

The amenities are lacking and the room decor and furniture is really put dated. However for me all this was known before I booked and what made up for it was the price and the location. Centrally located in Manhatten and across the road from the main Penn staton from wheer you get off if getting a train from the airport.

Honeymooners

The front office staff who checked is in was appallingly rude. She threw my debit card, ID and cursed at me when she was supposed to greet me goodbye and to have a great honey moon here in NYC she made us extremely offended by her rude behavior.

Just right

This hotel is in the heart of the action opposite Madison Square Gardens & within walking distance of shops. A very imposing art deco building with excellent staff restaurant & bar the rooms are basic but of a good size & the price is hard to beat what more could you want.

Good surprise

Overall very good. Great location close to Macy's, across from Penn Station, subways, buses to all airports and the train to NJ, too. Generally, found the staff helpful, friendly (with exception of one of the front desk persons, but another apologized for her). Room was great with good size (unlike some of the really small ones in Tines Square) with good heat, large TV, refrigerator! and maid service. They were always vacuuming, cleaning the halls. This was obviously once a very grand hotel. Mostly tourists now. Could use some updating and renovations. Lots of places to eat, shop, even get Chinese massage two blocks away. This is not Park Avenue, or the Waldorf (but even the Waldorf isn't the Waldorf anymore) and frankly, liked my stay here more than the Waldorf and this is 3-500/night cheaper.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the airport bus from LGA for $13, and avoid the taxi line--dropped right in front of hotel. Bus on corner to take you back to LGA or JFK or to DC for cheap. Took Supershuttle to Newark for 25 (didn't want to deal with lots of luggage on train), but even cheaper and faster.

For the practical traveler

This is my regular Manhattan hotel: VERY economical, great central location, just a minute from the nearest subway, and a clean room with a comfortable bed and pillow, strong water pressure for the shower. (Internet is not free.) Why pay double (or triple) in Manhattan for something more luxurious if you're planning to be out and about all day and only need a comfortable place where you can collapse at night?
