Manhattan: Hotel 414

414 West 46th St.

Reviewed by: cec from FL, review #2245

When: April 2008

A clean, comfortable, boutique hotel with a friendly, helpful staff located on a quiet street in the Hell's Kitchen area near Times Square.

Our recent stay at Hotel 414 with a group of 10 high school students was totally pleasant and enjoyable. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, convenient budget accomodation in New York City, this is it. The staff is friendly and helpful, and made us feel most welcome.

The rooms are cozy and nicely decorated. Each room has a large wall-mounted tv and a small refrigerator. The beds and pillows are excellent ... even our teens commented on how comfortable they were. Our room with 2 twin beds faced the pretty tree-lined street. Most of our students were in rooms with one queen bed and they had the added benefit of facing the hotel's central courtyard.

Just a few blocks from a subway stop, the location was great for us ... close enough to Times Square, but far enough away to be on a quiet street with a neighborhood feel. It was a sweet place to return to after a full day and evening of seeing the sights.

There is a nice little kitchen with good coffee and continental breakfast with fresh fruit. Coffee and tea are available in the kitchen at any time, and there is a computer with internet access in the lobby for guests.

The staff carried our bags to our rooms because the hotel does not have an elevator. I mention this to caution people with disabilities. You can, however, request a room on the ground floor.

The price is right if you are on a budget and/or traveling with a group. (I think rooms run around $200/night; we were a group so I'm not sure about the individual room rates.)

Hotel 414 is the perfect choice for people on a budget. We had a very nice stay and would stay there again.
