Heat in one room would not turn off; air conditioning in another would not turn off; staff were incredibly rude; we had to fight to be allowed into the room a couple of hours early despite travelling overnight to get to our destination. We will never stay there again.

I had spent alot of time researching for a decent place to stay that was value for money. Didn't want a bottom-of-the barell, basic hotel, but didn't want an expensive one either. I had narrowed my choice to two hotels, and rang roomex for advice, He agreed that the two hotels I picked were fine, but he recommended another, for the same price. He said that the location was the trump card of this hotel, and he was spot on.
Walking distance to times square, rockefeller centre, broadway shows etc.. 1 minute from Grand Central.Plenty of convenience stores, restauraunnts, pubs, salad bars close by. Beautiful foyer and reception area. Bed was large and extremely comfortable. Room was average size. Decor wasn't anything fancy but it was very clean. Would recommend this hotel to my friends, without any hesitation.
The only flaw is that the guy at the concierge, altough was very friendly and helpful, seemed to try to book very expensive theatre tickets for us, without telling us that we could queue on times square for same day half price tickets. We paid $75 per ticket, instead of $180!
As I said, i browsed many sites to look for a good bargain. Roomex were by far the best site for good value and great choice. Very happy customers.

We found the Roosevelt Hotel a great location for touring around New York. It was within walking distance of most of the big attractions. We were there for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were helpful and nothing was a problem for them. They recommended places to eat out. Opened the business centre at 1 am just for us. It was great. We were upgraded to a bigger room at no extra cost to ourselves. We dined there just one night and was not overly impressed with the food. But we had a ball. Highly recommend it.
