Canine enthusiasts should plan a visit to coincide with the Westminster Dog Show, an annual event where dogs are put through their paces at nearby Madison Square Garden. Even better, the hotel itself is dog-friendly and there are no size restrictions, although there is an additional fee for your pet to stay. Make sure you check with the front desk before bringing along your furry friend.

Pennsylvania Hotel New York

Location
The Pennsylvania Hotel New York is located at 33rd Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan. Catch up on work at the 24-hour business center, which features printers and high-speed internet access, or after a long day at a meeting use your complimentary guest passes to work out at Bally Total Fitness. Located next door to the hotel, it offers up-to-the-minute workout equipment, as well as a swimming pool and spa.

Affordable and within walking distance of various New York tower blocks like the Empire State Building and the vibrant oasis of Madison Square Garden, the Pennsylvania is a smart choice for leisure guests too, with central rooms and a budget price tag.
     
Sometimes known as the Hotel Pennsylvania or Hotel Penn, the accommodations here were opened in 1919 and have had several other names over the years, including the Statler-Hilton Hotel, after the original manager Ellsworth Statler. 
Dining
  • Over 1,700 guestrooms
  • 90,000 sq. ft. of function space, incl. adjoining Penn Plaza Pavilion
  • 16 function rooms and 3 ballrooms
  • 24-hour business center
  • Conference center on the 6th floor with executive boardroom
  • Catering capabilities
  • Four restaurants
Rooms
At the intersection of New York City's main tourist areas, such as the Broadway Theater district and Times Square, why not step out of the grand entrance at the Hotel Pennsylvania, turn to the right or left, and see where the sidewalk takes you? The Chrysler Building and Macy's are close at hand, and it's easy to reach the fashionable Chelsea and West Village neighborhoods from here too.
Highlights

Good food is integral in any getaway, so enjoy five on-site dining options. The Statler Grill offers specialty meals like juicy New York steaks and the freshest in seafood. Book a reservation early because people from all over New York City flock to the doors of this iconic restaurant. City Perk offers quick options to guests who are short on time but want something delicious to refuel with. Wet your whistle with a hot cup of joe or quell your rumbling belly with an on-the-go snack before heading out for some fast-paced New York sightseeing. Keep the family happy with legendary NYC hot dog's at Nathan's or beloved Tim Horton's pastries.

Hotel Penn

Well, my first trip in new York City in 11 years, and let me tell you the location of this Hotel is GREAT !!!! but the hotel itself could use a facelift, the lobby is goregous, and than when you get upstairs to your room, you find out why long nights in the CITY are what you are going to need to come back to the room to sleep!

Not the fanciest hotel, it's older, and the room I got was a bit dark and depressing, but the location can't be beat!

For the practical traveler

This is my regular Manhattan hotel: VERY economical, great central location, just a minute from the nearest subway, and a clean room with a comfortable bed and pillow, strong water pressure for the shower. (Internet is not free.) Why pay double (or triple) in Manhattan for something more luxurious if you're planning to be out and about all day and only need a comfortable place where you can collapse at night?

no-nonsense, great value, historical hotel

You stay here because 1) you need a clean, comfortable bed in a no-nonsense hotel; 2) you love the history of a hotel built in 1918 with the original internal room doors, it's name in a jazz song and you're amazed it's still going; 3) you can't beat the convenience of the location -- fly into Newark and get the train to the front door for $12.50. You don't stay here if 1) you insist on the latest trendy shampoos in the bathroom, and you object to old (but clean) sanitary ware; 2) you spend a lot of time in your room and you'll find a small room claustrophobic, but then why on earth are you in New York City? 3) you get upset if the electrical sockets are in an inconvenient place and you have to have room service (in which case, please leave New York City and let someone else take your place). This hotel is great value, perfectly pleasant, oozing charm and history and for everything else you need get out into the city and find it.

Great ovation and price. Check in and check out takes a long time...you can wait over 30 minutes to check in. Given the price you can overlook things like a pone not working. Nothing elegant, just clean small rooms!

Great comfortable stay!!!!

As a professional in Hotel business for many years, all I can say about this hotel is very practical for travelers and meet the standards of staying at any other hotel. I requested a late C/IN before I arrived and that was taking care off carefully and I was even given an upgrade to a higher floor. the front Desk agent DIMO was great and very friendly while issuing a room key. He also given me valuable informations of what to do and how to get to few places I asked for. I would love to come back to NY and stay in your hotel again and again.
