Keep away from the Portland Square Hotel!!!
My parents booked there (through their own website) the queen superior room and got a filthy room with no (!!!) windows, really tiny and gross, at the back of the hotel, looked as if it was the employees' room!!! And they paid $230 per night using a promotion, 15-18 October 2008 ?
The hotel disregarded that in the reservation form they specifically mentioned that they are on anniversary trip and requested a nice room, and that I called two times prior to their arrival to make sure that they are getting a nice room. We were aware of the bad reviews but we thought it was in different situation each time?.I guess we wanted to believe?the web site pictures looked so nice?BTW ? the hotel rep. had the nerves to claim that that filthy room is the "queen superior room"??.
My parents wanted to switch to a different hotel but they couldn't find one in a decent price on a short notice? My mother was so upset; it had ruined her whole trip (they traveled through the U.S for a month)!!!
Beware from Portland Square Hotel
Nice staff, great location – We stayed at the Portland Square recently and found it to be a very good choice. The central location was perfect as a starting point around the city. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff was very accomodating. We'd definitely go back
No longer inexpensive – In regards to their expensiveness or inexpensiveness, I just called them and the lady said they've been "upgraded" recently and that they "haven't really had any low rates for a while".
They used to have nice low rates a few years ago, though. $100 easy. But not anymore.
Having said all that... Good location, good service, well kept.
Inexpensive? – How's this hotel "inexpensive"? I just called to make a reservation, and it's $279+tax per night EARLY NOVEMBER! If that's "inexpensive", then I'm a giraffe!
Editorial Review – Times Square budget hotel features satellite TV, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi and daily maid service. Some rooms have shared bathrooms
What a Deal – The perfect location in a no frills, small, but spotlessly clean little hotel. 1/2 block from Times Square and 1/2 block from the subway. Wouldnt even consider any other hotel!!!
portland square, time square, one and th – the portland square hotel is in time square, a great location. the price was incredible and the room was great. could not have asked for more...
GREAT FIND!!!!! – For an amazing price you get a clean, comfortable room in the heart of NYC. I couldn't have done any better. I chose a shared bath and the only draw back was my laziness to actually go out of my room. i never had a problem with compition. I was a single in a double and yes it was small but very comfortable. The bed was nice and firm/comfortable. I stayed from a Saturday night to Friday morning in November. I can do nothing but rave about the place. I felt very very safe in the hotel and in the surrounding area of the hotel. WHAT A FIND!!!!
BEST CHEAP HOTEL IN NYC – PORTLAND SQUARE IS A JEWEL OF A HOTEL. THE LOCATION IS WONDERFUL AS IS THE STAFF. SMALL ROOMS BUT VERY CLEAN. WON'T STAY ANY WHERE ELSE IN NYC.
Location Location Location! – The Portland Square Hotel's location is fantastic! I never have to go far to see my favorite Broadway shows, not to mention the half-price tickets! The value is unbelievable. This hotel is well maintained, clean and the service is great! I wouldnt take my family anywhere else.
