The Crowne Plaza at Times Square New York is a hotel centrally located in NYC. I heard good things about the hotel so I was excited to explore the place.
Upon arrival, we were welcomed by very friendly front desk staff. They gave us all the information we needed about the hotel and surrounding areas. Although this is a large hotel with 795 rooms, I appreciated the personal approach. The reception area of this Crowne Plaza was spacious and pretty modern decorated. There is a concierge who will take care of all your questions and reservations, very convenient! I wanted to see a broadway show later that night and they were very responsive to all questions I had.
I stayed in several hotels in New York City and most hotel rooms are very small. I was surprised with the rooms at the Crowne Plaza Times Square! They have a great size and lay-out! The kingsized bed felt sooo good and soft. We even had a view of Times Square, fantastic… I couldn’t ask for more! The bathroom was up to date and has been renovated recently. It had a single sink, toilet and a large walk in shower. The room was very clean…
After checking the room, I went to explore the Crowne Plaza Times Square. A lot of things to do here! There is a large fitness center (which is not run by Crowne Plaza, but it is located within their building and guests can make use of it) with swimming pool. They also have a restaurant/bistro down in the lobby and a bar. And even though this hotel has a lot to offer, it is all about the location here… When you leave the hotel you are in “the middle of it all”.
Later that night, I went to see Finding Neverland (one of the newest broadway shows) and it litterly took me only 6 minutes to get there! Great show, by the way J
Every morning, guests can enjoy a full American breakfast served in … at an additional charge. I do recommend having breakfast here as it truly is one of the best buffets I have seen in the US! The buffets contains of fresh fruit, pancakes, waffles, Chinese cold/hot items, yoghurts, cereals, eggs, etc. can’t say enough good things about the buffet, definitely worth a visit!
The Crowne Plaza Times Square is a very nice 4 star hotel with one of best locations you could find in New York. I look forward to staying there again!
