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.

Neighborhood
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.
Hints and tips
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.

This is not a comprehensive list of fees. Any amounts listed above may not include taxes and are subject to change.

Hotel Pennsylvania is my favorite place to stay in NYC because it's a grand old hotel, there's always something interesting going on (last time I was there Chewbacca the Wookie and Spiderman were walking through the lobby), it's right next to everything in midtown, a block from the subway, the last reasonable price in the middle of Manhattan, and it's quiet in the rooms. An unbeatable combination.

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!

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?

Good hotel, great location

I was worried since it's only rated 2 stars, but I had a very positive experience here. Despite some reviews, I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The location can't be beat for midtown Manhattan, and I paid at least $100 less per night than other conference attendees in nearby hotels. The lobby is a bit daunting when you arrive (very large and noisy, feels like a marble bus terminal) and the checkin line was long (45 minutes) but I wasn't in a rush. I think they book a lot of foreign tour groups, so massive checkin happens a lot.

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!
