If you do a search here, you'll see a nunber of good reports about the Broadway Inn, including some from me.

I think it would be especially good for women traveling alone because they are small and friendly- no endless corridors with people wandering.

Have you read reviews on tripadvisor?

http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Rev..._New_York.html

Mostly positive with one woman expressing security concern about the handling of keys.

I stayed there alone on my first ever trip to NYC last December. It was in a perfect location for a theater goer (during the intermission to Gypsy I actually ran up to my room to use the bathroom cuz the lines in the Shubert were too long!)

No elevators or long corridors, it is small and cozy. The rooms are miniscule, it can be noisy as it is right smack on the corner of 46th and 8th and it's only about 4 stories high. It is a small hotel, like a European accommodation. There is a doorman on the sidewalk, everybody has to walk past him and the front desk clerk to get to the rooms. I felt perfectly safe there. I wish I were there right now!

Hi Vivi,

Thank you so much! I feel so much better now! I am only staying there for a night as I am meeting a girlfriend there the next day. I didnt want to stay at the hotel we had booked just for one person as it would be too expensive just for me.

I am so excited now about my trip!

Thanks again!

Dot:

Your cab driver may not know where Broadway Inn is located, mine didn't. Thank goodness I knew it was on 46th at 8th. It is on the southeast corner, the entrance is on 46th.

dotwest,
You'll be close to a great restaurant area: 9th avenue between 45th & 55th. You could just walk a few blocks along 9th avenue and hit dozens of great, reasonable places. What kind of place are you looking for? You'll get a lot more responses if you start a new thread asking about "dining options on 9th avenue?".

Bardo is right, there are tons of restaurants in the area of the Broadway Inn, in fact the street sign says "restaurant row." We mostly ate at delis, one was really great and it was near the Broadway Inn on 8th, but of course I cannot remember the name, LOL.
