The Milford Plaza Hotel, New York City

Milford Plaza Hotel taken from 8th Avenue
We stayed at the Milford Plaza Hotel for five nights . It was okay, average. It’s the first time I’ve stayed in New York, so I don’t have a lot to compare it to. Travelmarx with a k has stayed in NYC before and said it was appropriately priced for what we got. Good points: location, friendly staff, free internet in our room. Bad points: small room for us, cheapo breakfast, elevators took forever to come (we descended 17 flights of stairs, but climbing them after a long day was a bit much). The hotel is supposedly under renovation. I’m hoping by the lacking state of our room that ours hadn't yet been renovated.

When we checked in they said that we were in a “club” room. Don’t know about you, but that conjured up an image of a nice room. Not an oversized closet with one (broken) chair and a bed and the need to shut the bathroom door to be able to leave the room or get in the closet. In a word: small. However, I guess this is par for hotels in NYC for the range we paid (~ $300/night, gasp, for a double).

The hotel is located just west of Times Square and is on a major subway line or a few minutes away from others.
