Since the minute we arrived until the minute we left we were looked after to a very high standard. All staff made us feel welcome , reception staff made sure all our requests were met. They had the loveliest manner. Could not do enough for us and always had time to answer any questions. The room was the cleanest ever. The girl who cleaned our room every day left it immaculate , she went above and beyond. Also on few occasions we seen her she was always smiling and greeted us. Dining room was well managed and food on offer was fantastic variety. Waiting staff always had smile and despite other reviews saying the queue was long we nearly always walked straight in or waited a matter of minutes. Words can not describe how amazing this hotel was, people say in New York you’re only in your room to sleep but we feel this hotel made our holiday special. It had a lovely feel to it and to come back in the evening to relax in such a lovely, clean ,modern well maintained room was special to us. We had spectacular views. A fridge where water was always given to us and if ran out reception kindly arranged more free of charge. We bought some drinks in the supermarket and made such a difference to have fridge to store them . Every time we walked through the doors of hotel we where greeted with smiles and words of welcome.Our second riu hotel in last few months and we are already booked for another in July. You can guarantee they care for there guests and we felt like they looked after and cared for us like we where family. A very high standard and lovely atmosphere in all areas of hotel . Thank you to all staff not forgetting the concierge staff who also had lovely manner very kind and helpful. This hotel must have an excellent management team for staff to be so happy and relaxed. This makes the whole guest experience special.

Hotel's Favourite
I picked this hotel because it was comparatively inexpensive and its location in the heart of the Theater District. I was very impressed by how helpful the front desk was, the cleanliness of the room, the decor, and the incredible breakfast buffet. It is about 15 short blocks to Central Park for anyone looking for a pleasant run or walk. In addition, it is just a block or two from Schmackery's Cookies (yum!).

Just back from a wonderful 7 nights stay at the Riu Plaza. This hotel is so central to all the places you need to visit. Check in and out was quick and easy and all the staff in this hotel are so helpful. The room was very clean and serviced every day. Breakfast could be a bit busy in the mornings but no real problems as the staff are so well organised and you are attended to quickly. Food could have been a bit hotter but we managed. A very large and varied choice to choose from Would go back again to this hotel.

Fantastic hotel and all around great experience. It was a special occasion for my husband and I and they had champagne in the room and put us in a high floor. This was very much appreciated! We booked the smallest room, but it was plenty big enough and the bathroom was very nice with a large shower, makeup mirror, and all the extras you could need. We were on the 30th floor and could not hear the street noise although we faced 8th street. However, the construction noise from the construction site across the street was quite loud and started early in the morning on weekdays. This of course was no fault of the hotel, but something to be aware of. The view was great though with the large windows. The buffet breakfast was nice with plenty of options and much better than a nearby hotel we stayed in last year. The only day we had to wait was Saturday and this was about a 10 minute wait, so not bad. The lobby is very nice. Check in and out were easy. We loved the on-site coffee shop where we picked up waters, sodas, and chai tea daily. We also visited the on-site fashion bar once and it was beautiful inside. We came at 11:30 and didn’t realize they closed at 12 on Saturday and they started turning on the lights and shutting off the music about 10 minutes after we came so they seemed pretty eager to close down asap, which seemed early for NYC. Overall the stay was great and the location was ideal and easy walk to all the Broadway shows we saw in addition to restaurants, birdland jazz club, Times Square, etc. Will definitely stay again on our next trip to NYC!

We checked in and there was a room available and we didn’t have to wait. It was walking distance to all of the Broadway Theaters. It was absolutely amazing. The employees were so nice and friendly. Great service and the breakfast was amazing. I will definitely be staying here again.

The hotel and room were clean. The staff were always friendly and helpful when approached. The breakfast was very tasty and there was a large selection of food. The only downside was we weren't informed that opposite our room was a building site which created loud noises from 7 am. We planned to go out later in the morning through to late evening so would have preferred to sleep past 7 am.

Perfect location. Clean and tidy as expected. No problems whatsoever with the room or staff. The food could be a lot better. Mass produced for breakfast and evening meal. Could be a lot better. Overall 4/5 I would go back without doubt. Very good.

The location of the hotel is ideal for those wishing to explore all parts of the city. The rooms are clean, modern and higher rooms have a great view of the city. The food is excellent, plenty of choices. Breakfast can be very busy however staff are very organised. Dinner is also very good, different choices each evening. The only negative about this hotel is the tourist tax charge ($99 for three nights) , this is payable upon check in. My husband and I will definitely be returning to the riu plaza

It's busy, but well controlled, great location, very noisy from construction work during working hours, decent breakfast, again very busy but well managed, comfortable room - took 4 days to get my TV to work after repeatedly reporting it, I ended up fixing it myself. All that said, I would stay again....

Amazing hotel! We booked this hotel through British Airways . We booked this with having a buffet breakfast available, meaning we could fuel up before a long day of sightseeing. We got upgraded on our room too . The room had 2 queen beds and a sofa bed. Shower in the bathroom was amazing ! Let down to the room is that there was no coffee or tea facilities , but water was left in fridge on a morning. Breakfast available was lovely, pancakes waffles and other items available. Staff were very helpful and nice We loved this hotel! And we will for sure be back.
