The Herald Square Hotel Review

The sculpted cherubs on the facade and the vintage magazine covers adorning the common areas give good hints that the great value Herald Square Hotel used to be Life magazine's headquarters. Rooms are basic, with a general shabby-chic look. There's no concierge and no room service, but the staff is friendly, and nearby restaurants will deliver. It's a great bargain, given the convenient neighborhood.

    Herald Square Hotel Review

    This is a great budget hotel. The room where we stayed was recently renovated, with the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in in any hotel anywhere. The bathroom was appointed with fittings by Restoration Hardware and was immaculate. Great staff, helpful and knowledgeable. We'll definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone visiting NYC.
