Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan Hotel Review

The view from my room was a welcome surprise! 
the reflection of the buildings in the windows next door 
just a beautiful room and very spacious indeed 
I like a nice size bathroom in my hotel and in NYC, that can be hard to find 

Being right next to the Hershey store had me quite happy! 
something new in the hotel is the wonderful illy caffe' and pastry from Balthazar Bakery
since I have yet to try their pastries, this was a must for one morning breakfast 
this was the best latte and chocolate croissant I ever had!! problem is the hours are only in the morning and I told the lady at the desk of the restaurant it would be good to keep it open for those who may want a coffee later and/or dessert/pastry. Big thumbs up to this add on by the hotel !!

The restaurant in the hotel, Brasserie 1605, has good dining options but it only open from 630am to 2pm for Breakfast and Lunch options. You do have a nice view of Times Square while you are dining.

Hotel prices are at their lowest in the months of January and February; their highest September and October. Sunday nights are the lowest prices for hotel rooms, in most cases. My go to places for checking prices for hotels are TrivagoTrip and Travelzoo. Always remember to check the hotel's website itself, they are really trying to have you book direct and sometimes offer specials or a discount with AAA that is cheaper than the websites I mentioned above. I am also finding that if you book on your mobile device, you can save some money as well. I actually got a better rate via my mobile phone than using my AAA discount online direct at the hotel. You should really do some research on your price for hotel a few different ways, and ALWAYS book a room that you can cancel, you never know what may happen in the future. 

Remember to take into account for your total cost the NYC Hotel tax of 14.75% plus Daily $2.00 per room occupancy fee.

My rating for this hotel on a scale of 1 to 10 would be an 8. 

Disclosure: This stay was paid for by me. I will always state at the end of each review whether my stay was paid for by myself or if I was hosted by the hotel. I will honestly tell you about my experience at this hotel, not being swayed in any way by complimentary services. I know you value my opinion, and it is important to me to be as honest as possible. All opinions are my own. Thank you so much.
