    Great 1 nighter at this hotel. on the 22nd floor. Views were wonderful. The breakfast was the best I have ever had at a hotel that included it at no cost. Within walking distance to Times Square and the Amtrak Station.

    I look at this building from my office (across Bryant Park) and I don't know how this property can include Time Square in its title?

    They would be better off putting Bryant Park in the title as I think the Times Square moniker misleading to some guests. Especially the average guest that isn't as travel savy as those of us here.

    Great place but when checking rates keep in mind parking is $56/day and you need to stay put since you'll be charged again each time you enter, even on the same day (i.e. no in/out privs). Yes, you can get somewhat better parking rates around there independently of the hotel, but best to not have a car at all in NYC midtown or to ditch it elsewhere where parking is less expensive.

    Agreed. Although within walking distance, its hardly a "Times Square" hotel.

    I met my boss in Baltimore and we took the Amtrak into Penn Station. Nice ride. Then a cab ride to LGA. I couldnt imagine driving in NYC. Im just a simple country boy.....

    On another note, do Residence Inn's normally have stoves? This one did not.

    Yes, RIs normally have stoves, at least on the one bedroom and up units. On the other hand, this is NYC, and they are billing their rooms as "urban kitchenettes" which just have microwaves. Nothing surprises me in NYC.
