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.

Not good

After a long flight from the UK I walked in to the hotel thinking this looks beautiful! Got to the check in desk and was sorely disappointed! The lady was more interested in her computer and taking our credit card incase of damages! Never got eye contact, hardly understood what I was being told/asked! This was the main experience with most of the front desk staff and some were even rude when asked about wifi! As a large hotel I expected much better customer service but the staff seem disinterested in that! The rooms are also in severe need of updating and proper cleaning! We walked in to a crisp left over from the last guest on the floor! Gross! The only saving grace in this hotel was the staff who manned the shops and restaurants, there we received proper customer service and friendliness! Also the doormen were great and helpful. Rest of staff need serious customer service training to be the face of the hotel!!

Good Stay

Overall the experience was good. The only thing is that I didn't have free wifi when I checked in. I asked the front desk and the lady said if the customer booked it through their own website, they would get free wifi, but not for who book through other websites..

Hotel Penn

Hotel Pennsylvania is the perfect place to stay for the New York experience. With its location right across from Penn Station, it's easy to catch any of the major subway lines, making travel anywhere in Manhattan, the outer boroughs, or even New Jersey a breeze.

Just okay

Great for a budget traveler who is only using the room to shower and sleep. Had an incident with a "critter" at 4am and the staff was helpful and accommodating to switch my room immediately. Great location and great price for the area but definitely in need of some new carpet and paint.

Good Standard

Very central and convenient location. Everything OK, nothing special. Used to be a better Hotel a long time ago. Depending on how much you pay, this can be a very good deal.
