Location was good.
The only good things is location
Location only was good inconvenience
The staff and the facilities of the hotel was incomplete and for the class hostel it was so terrible. The room was tide and small no mirror no cabinet and etc just plce to sleep
Saw decline in services this visit
I choose to stay at Vanderbilt YMCA because it is so convenient and yet does not cost hundreds of dollars a night.
After staying there several times over the past four years for up to a week at a time, I may change my mind if the quality continues to decline. Each time I've been, the services have gotten worse. I'm not talking about the 25 year old TVs that are so big they are a predominate feature in the room nor am I talking about the creakiness of the bunk beds when you turn over at night, nor the carpet that hasn't been changed in over a decade. I can live with these for three to six nights (our typical stay). I'm talking about asking for an extra pillow each day for two days and never getting it. I could understand if it was overlooked once but when I didn't get it the first night, I asked again and still didn't get it. In addition, our room was not made up one day until almost 5:00. One day the top bunk was not made up but the sheets just laid on the bed in a bundle. Another night the top bunk sheet was made but the blanket was not put on it. So I will try them again but if the quality of service and attitude of the staff continue to degrade we will not be back.
I liked the in-room fridge, the proximity to the subway, and the workout facilities. These were the best things about the place.
I didn't like that the staff puts men in rooms next to the women's bathrooms and showers. I also really didn't like that the women's shower room didn't lock properly, which left women vulnerable during their shower time. I checked out after one night because that made me very nervous. The cleaning staff was loud, the front desk staff didn't care about the lock on the shower room door, and only one elevator was working.
Good bulk prices for souvenir clothing
Humbly, please inform me about helping with movies about the future of the library. I have approached New York Public Library. Humbly, please inform fully.
My room lights and a fire alarm tweeting caused me distress
Simple life, simple place, simple night.
Good for what you pay for
Price and walking distance from
Cean, friendly, affordable
Staff answered questions via email very quickly. Staff were very friendly. Room, shared bathroom and fadcilities were exceptionally clean. Very affordable. Excellent bang for the buck.
Staff did not answer phone calls. I tried several numbers and several times.
The Y is always Good!
The room was an efficiancy, small and neat, no need to spend too much time cleaning up!, the trip down the hall to use the bathroom gave me a chance to feel my feet after a long plane and train flight. The staff was nice and easy to talk to and I enjoyed the use of the facilities, particularly the swimming pooo!, Thanks for a Good Time!
Hard to keep the bathroom clean, I needed another blanket, and the heater was an air condititioner. I felt a bit chilly!
Great location, basic facilities
Location was excellent There was a doorman around the clock
Showers were a little old Carpets were quite dirty
There are some great hotels in New York, and when travelers come across one, they praise it. What many travelers don’t know is that there is a great hotel in the Vanderbilt YMCA. The rooms here are much like hostels, but they do have all of the comforts of home. This hotel is a little-known place for guests to stay and no one would even know just how grand the rooms are here. When guests check in, they have access to the pool, fitness center, sauna, steam room and shower, and group exercise classes. There are also vending machines here, and guests can enjoy the non-smoking property.
The rooms here can be single or private rooms, and they all offer WiFi, 24-hour reception, air conditioning, climate control, housekeeping, flat screen television with local channels, and mini fridge. The rooms do have a dorm type feel to them, but with these accommodations, guests will feel like they are in a luxury hotel.
When visiting New York, travelers need to get the most for their money. That is why choosing to stay at the Vanderbilt YMCA is a great idea! It is not as costly as the other hotels in the area, and with the money saved, guests can spend it on exploring, eating, and shopping. Nearby guests will find Grand Central Terminal, Times Square, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, 5th Avenue Shopping, Murray Hill, Shake Shack, Oyster Bar, Bryant Park, Radio City Music Hall, and Duane Reade Pharmacy.
