Pennsylvania Hotel, New York, USA
★ ★ ★ ★
Enormous operation in a central Midtown location, opposite the station. Spacious but impersonal marble lobby is somewhat cool and uninviting, monopolised by fast food outlets and coffee bars.
The restaurant and bar can become crowded when there are major events at nearby Madison Square Garden.
A mass market establishment which receives many groups from all over the world.
In a central midtown location, opposite Penn station. Madison Square Gardens and US Post Office across the busy road. Plenty of fast food outlets, shops, international restaurants and coffee shops in the surround. Subway station 200m away and bus stop outside. Trains to New Jersey suburbs and beyond leave from Penn station.
The popular Chelsea area with its many bars and nightclubs is 1km (0.6 miles)to the south. Times Square and the Broadway theatres are 700m to the north.
There is no pool at this property.
