                      Easy access to subways, several dining and useful shopping venues nearby.

                      The hotel is obviously under ownership who intend to milk it for cash and don't care about the state of the fit-out and furnishings. Nothing there looks less than 30 years old.

                      Really noisey pipe/water noises from other rooms. Dirty unclean rooms. Poor customer service! Parking not as advertised.

                      Not much

                      I thought it was very out dated....my room was supposed to be non smoking and it stunk.....the bathroom was dirty and it took forever for check in and check out...would never recommend.

                      It's a money making scam. Not only can you not check in 1 hour before check in (3.30pm) you are forced to pay luggage fees ($4 a bag). The worst is that there is no structure. The line to get a luggage ticket is the same line as the check-in which took well over 1 hour. Also when booking the Suite 500 which Hotel Pennsylvania guarantee speedier service and the area to do that was closed. Not very professional and really need to fix this. Also having more staff to deal with the massive lines would be more acceptable. One staff member even mentioned this is standard which I would have thought that after many complaints over the years the hotel may want to improve this.

                      I like the location and the very nice "hotel staff" that clean the rooms! The check-in lady was nice but coud`nt give us what we booked!

                      I feel that i pay a lot of money for the location! "They charged ridiculousely for allmost everything, internett , storage og luggage etc. Information booklet in the room is out of date, un-effecient check-in, we waited in line for allmost one hour ...very, very far away from a "superior room"...or hotel. They believe "in the location" and don`t do much for their guests.

                      I liked the location of the hotel, however the staff was not friendly or accomidating. They lost my Credit Card on file and sent Security to my room to tell me I had to leave immediately! The worst hotel experience I have ever had.

                      the constant line for the front desk, at anytime day or night there was atleast 10 to 100 people waiting in line for the front desk. The staff was rude, and unapologietic for loosing my credit card on file and when they finally realized the mistake they had made the front desk manager actually said to me "Oh, I see what happened, accounting took your card out of the system they are retarded..."

                      close to timesquare, shopping and other Manhattan landmarks and good value for money

                      the queue at the time of check-in took me 40 mins. hotel was built in1919 and it is a bit old from inside, however if they will change carpets, it will be great value for money hotel.

                      Nothing, it was run down and is really taking advantage of poor unsuspecting travelers. This hotel hasn't been updated since the 70's a real shame you even represent this rat trap.

                      See above; rooms were dirty, linens were thread worn and bathrooms had paint peeling which I bet has lead in them. Get this POS off your website, you can do better.

                      It's central location; everything you might need was a stone's throw away. And very helpful staff when I needed to change my room.

                      The price Hotel Pennsylvania charged for a 5 minute call from my room to New Jersey was absolutely ridiculous - 22 Dollars!
