About 36 Hudson Hotel, New York

An intimate hotel with just 34 rooms, 36 Hudson Hotel is a 5-minute walk from the Javits Convention Center. The hotel is nestled on a relatively quiet street west of Midtown in a neighborhood sometimes referred to as Hell's Kitchen. Once one of the city's roughest neighborhoods, today's revitalized Hell's Kitchen bears little resemblance to its past or the images conjured by its fiery name. This newly hip neighborhood--also known as Clinton--is now home to renovated brick warehouses and lofts that house theaters, bars, and a diverse selection of restaurants. If you're visiting on a weekend, join the bargain-hunters seeking unique merchandise at the Hell's Kitchen Outdoor Flea Market, 3 blocks north. Parking is available nearby (surcharge).

While the less-trafficked Midtown West location will give you a buffer from the throngs of sightseers swarming central Midtown, the heart of New York City action is less than a 20-minute walk away in Times Square. Surrounding Times Square is the Theatre District, where you can catch Tony Award–winning shows in iconic Broadway theaters. The heart of Manhattan's visual-arts scene can be found just south of the hotel in Chelsea, home to hundreds of galleries showcasing established and up-and-coming artists.

Traveling farther afield? Penn Station, a 10-minute walk from the hotel, provides direct access to the city's extensive subway system. At Madison Square Garden, adjacent to the station, you can catch a Knicks or Rangers game, a championship boxing showdown, or a big-name concert.

When you're ready to bed down for the night, you'll return to a quiet, cleanly designed guestroom. You can plan your next day via complimentary WiFi, available throughout the hotel. Your guestroom also features an LCD TV with Showtime. The coffeemaker comes with premium Wolfgang Puck blends, and bottled water is complimentary. The bathroom has some perks you'd find at more-expensive hotels: monogrammed bathrobes and Gilchrist & Soames luxury amenities. Connect your iPod to the docking station, and drift off to your favorite tunes. And you can rest assured: This New York hotel is smoke-free.

Great experience
Service was great very polite professional people! Walls are thin but that’s not there fault. Will use them again!

Good if you are looking for bed and shower, only.
Really small room with a comfortable bed. Clean bathroom but needs some maintenance, as well as in the room, nothing big. Friendly staff. Good location, a couple of blocks from the subway at 8th ave. and Penn Station but surroundings makes you feel a little bit uncomfortable to walk at night. Overall ok, if you are looking to have a bed and a shower, only.

Great Value, Great Location needs a little work
A good value and location in New York City. Convenient to Times Square. Hotel was clean and front desk service was very helpful. Hotel needs updating. Wallpaper peeling off, bathroom door wouldn't lock, door looked like it had been kicked in stuff like that. Area was safe and convenient. Great place to stay in the city!

You get your $’s worth
Only one person works the front desk so there are times when no one is on the lobby to help you. This was frustrating during check in. The lobby is just a room with a desk and s couple chairs -tiny! The room is the smallest hotel room you’ve ever seen. It’s not well maintained with large blemishes on the walls. How hard is it to spot paint the white walls? It just looks dingy and dirty. The slow elevator opens to a narrow hallway with 5 rooms. Creepy! The bathroom was clean and average size and there is a coffee station on the lobby but those are the only positives. There’s nowhere to eat nearby that I’d recommend. I was drawn to this hotel by the low price but it was a huge mistake. The walk is long to Time Square for kids and it’s a dark part of town. No parking at hotel so add $60 to the cost for parking at a nearby garage. I will not stay there again.
