We stayed at the Herald Square Hotel in New York City recently, and loved it! The hotel is convenient to everything, only a few safe walking blocks away from Madison Square Garden and Times Square. It's a very classically styled place. We traveled with a friend who stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms, done over in the period style of the historical significance of the hotel, and just beautifully restored. But our room was also wonderful. There is definitely a feel to the building that you are in the place where Time and Life magazines were done. The hotel has pictures of from the covers of the magazines that used to be created there hanging in the narrow hallways. The marble circular stairs bring you into the halls at each floor but yes, there is an elevator too! While there is no restaurant or room service, the breakfast area in the lobby has coffee, tea and hot chocolate available, and there are a couple of places very close by, including a wine bar next door, a market just down the street with great bagels, and a Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin-Robbins just up the street. The lobby is small, but once you enter your room you forget about that and you just enjoy being there. The towels were thick and bed linens were elegant, white comforters, crisp sheets and classic cotton blankets. The bathroom was grand, and the mattresses and pillows were top of the line. Flat screen big TVs and free high speed internet service were in both rooms. It's a great place to stay!
