A Good Bargain in an Expensive City – Went ahead with my reservation despite the wide range of reviews. No it's not luxurious but it's very convenient (lots of cabs) within a few blocks of times square and broadway shows, and the subway. Room was comfortable, quiet, and clean. A bit overheated (ran the a/c on high all night in February). Pool is just fair but great for kids.
There was virtually no guest or street noise!
Staff was generally responsive and good. You get what you pay for.
Parking is a great deal @$8 per night.
If you're looking to do midtown, this is a very good low cost option.
Mixed experience – We stayed at the Skyline for two days in late 2002. The deluxe king room was very spacious and clean. The concierge was helpful, and the bellboy did a good job of looking after our luggage. We had looked forward to the pool, which was warm and over-chlorinated to the point where our eyes stung during our entire visit. The costly local phone calls were a bummer. Finally, the location was a little far from restaurants and sightseeing for our 5-year-old to walk, so we probably will stay somewhere more central next time. Not a horrible experience, but we think we can do better!
Is this a three star hotel ? – We asked the front desk to call us a cab and they responded by laughing in my wife's face and saying "you have to call your own cab, we don't do that here." No big deal ordinarilly, but I was kind of put off by their lack of concern for their guests. I will not ever stay at the Skyline again. If there were services offered by this hotel, they did a good job of not letting us find out what they were. The concierge was gone by 7:00PM, the TV was billed as having digital cable, webtv, and a game system, but there were no manuals or literarture in the room to explain how to access these. Also there was no brochure to describe and explain how to access hotel services. Do yourself a favor, for a little more money you can stay someplace closer with much better services.
I should have known.... – after pre paying a whole 3 weeks in advance and paying over $1200.00 for 6 nights, and they didn't have our reservation on record, we were goning to be in trouble. They did not have our non smoking avail, so we had to switch rooms after one night, and were but in a roon for physcally challenged people, which we did not need. The room had the noisiest heater that would not work! But woke us up at 3 AM when it did kick in!One pleasentry our house keeping lady.And after complaining the hotel did nothing to compensate for our not so nice stay. The rest of our trip outside the hotel was absolutely wonderful!
I found my place in NY – I had "delux king" room and it was great. Room was BIG!!!(even if that wasn't NY). Furniture was almost brand new and nothing was broken. I believe this was the first hotel I saw in years that had room almost as good as the lobby. Most of the place is worn down in the hotel but delux king and queen (I've been told) was newly done. Internet rate was very reasonable. One caution though... If you are going to leave your stuff with the bell boy before you chek in, do it with your own risk. I almost lost my luggage thnks(?) to the day time bell boy. Except him everyone else were very attentitive and nice. I would definately try again.
weekend fun – My best friend and I stayed at the skyline in Aug. while seeing Mary J Blige at the Apollo Theater. The hotel was great for the money. However it was very warm in the room, the air conditioner didn't work much. And lets just say the customer service was a real nightmare. But the attitudes in Ny is less than friendly often anyway. But the rooms were clean, and it was a good value in a decent neighborhood for the 89.00 a night. Just make sure that if you make internet reservations they adhere to the price. I would stay again, especially in the winter. The rooms climate would be perfect in the dead of winter. I was overcharged for my room because I made reservations over the net, but was refunded asap from mangr before check it.
Not pleased at all: – Who would think you'd find a real Hell in Hell's Kitchen?
I booked my family reunion into this hotel. We were told we'd have a block of rooms together. We were scattered all over the hotel.
The air conditioning didn't work (this was Aug) and we had to switch rooms.
The toilet broke minutes before our banquet and we were asked to switch rooms again.
One family's room had no electricity and was asked if they could wait until morning for repair! She had to find a new room as well.
My family had a good time because we were together, but the hotel is not worth it!
