Rated 2 out of 5 by jcdaccounts Loud A/C, messy lobby, needs some love
The lobby looks like a messy back office. Checking in late, I didn't have a choice to change rooms (I certainly would have if I wasn't wrecked tired from the Amtrak disaster). The A/C was so loud (I mean...impossibly loud) that I had to turn it off to go to sleep, which was fun in the 85 degree evening.
Waking up in the morning I was greeted by an empty soap dispenser in the shower (I get it....save some money with a dispenser, but don't forget to fill it!!). The room service also messed up my order (missed an entire omelette) but to their credit were back within 15 minutes and apologetic.
Leaving in the AM I realized why the area seemed so sketchy at night - it's right next to a parole office! There was a line of convicts around the corner waiting to go through a metal detector.
For almost $500 a night, I expect MUCH better. Will not be staying here again.

My first impression of the hotel was surprise, surprise because it was small. Overall it was a pleasant place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although the room didn't have any bells and whistles it was clean and comfortable. We had a King size bed that was nice but the bathroom was very small. We just spent one night in the city so for our needs the room was great. Once again Sheraton met my expectations!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OluS Excellent Location, Great Staff!
The staff were very polite, friendly and were always eager to help. We arrived early and we were glad the staff suggested keeping our bags until our room was ready. The beddings were fresh and clean. There was free wifi. The location was excellent. I am glad I discovered the hotel and will definitely stay there again. There was free popcorn on December 23rd, that was a really sweet gesture. I wish the room was bigger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stets44 Good location, basic hotel
We booked this hotel for it's proximity to Times Square. Good location but closer to the Hudson than expected and no parking on site. There was also no in room entertainment / movies. I much prefer the sweet sleeper and heavenly beds that other starwood properties offer but other than that the staff was friendly, hotel was clean, breakfast was good and we used points so can't beat the value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill124 Very Good Experience
First off: Kathia, who helped me at the front desk, was great. Super nice, good service, nice conversationalist, and upgraded me to a bit better room at my request. She recognized me later in the day and asked how things were. Very nice Service!
Small room, but has everything. Nice bed, great shower, smart design.
Outstanding location near Times Square, the subway and Port Authority.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Lynette 1 Point Sheraton
We were fooled by the location. Although Times square is few blocks from the Sheraton, the hotel is next to a Parole Office, dark at night, and had few people working shifts. They had one waitress and the cook working the breakfast. Rooms were super tiny, bathroom even smaller. Service was non existent! Manager was there but was not open about getting serviced by others than the people outside in front of hotel.

I was stuck in New York for several days due to the weather in Chicago. I bounced around hotels (all within the Starwood family) and my last night was at the Four Points. By far, the staff here was the most friendly and accommodating. And I gotta say, I am a HUGE fan of the cupcakes at check in. Kathia at the front desk went out of her way welcome me and make sure I had everything I needed. Thanks so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joel101 A Great Experience
The Four Points on West 40th in NYC exceeded my expectations. The facility is very nice, the room abd bed comfortable. What made the experience exceptional was the staff. Everyone including the people at the front desk, the bellmen, housekeeping, and the room service staff where particularly accommodating, pleasure and helpful. I would gladly stay at this property again. Thanks for the care and professionalism.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tuckeruck Disappointed with room temperature control
I've stayed st this facility several times. The staff is always great and the rooms are clean. However, I've run into issues with thermostat control a couple of times. This week the heater would not shut off based on room temperature. As a result it would get super hot then I would have to turn it off which would lead to the room getting cold. The staff took great care of me though and gave me a different room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MamaG4 The staff is wonderful!
The location of this hotel was central to everything we wanted to do, but keep in mind there are 3 adult clubs on the same block if you are traveling with children. The rooms were TINY, but the staff was great. I am all about customer service, and we had all our requests met with a smile.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tyler13 Dissapointing stay
The front desk cancelled my reservation even after I called to confirm that I would be arriving late due to my flight delay. When I arrived the front desk attendant could only reinstate my first night as the other two nights were no longer available. I was forced to find a new hotel the next morning. Then once in my room the walls are thin and the mattresses were covered in a plastic liner under the sheets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCP2013 NYC Marathon
We came up for the NY Marathon. The staff was great, in particular, Leon at the front desk. He was exceptionally professional. Knowing that we were running the race, he arranged for a late checkout so we didn't have to travel without showers. The location was ideal for the marathon and close to Times Square and Hells Kitchen without the noise. The room was a little tight for two, but it worked out well.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was in a great location within walking distance to Time Square. Subways were very close. You could catch a taxi in front of the hotel at times but mostly we had to walk to the end of the block. Not a problem though. Outstanding staff! Resturant food was good! On Wednesdays, they have a Managers Dinner. The only thing I wish they had was a refrigerator in room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nicknamesaresilly Not recommendable
First I did not get my request for a double bed. Second the room look terrible because of the visual damage to the desk. It was badly scratched, probably from the metal back of the chair hitting it-not sufficient room to turn. The room looked "ghetto." How can I recommend to anyone a room that looks like that. Regardless of how good everything else may be, a room looking so bad is inexcusable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Francesca26 Good location and excellent staff
I would like to commend the entire staff in the front desk including the concierge who are very helpful. Special mention to Leon for a warm welcome when he checked us in and gave us some cupcakes too. As requested, we got a corner room with a nice city view which added to our wonderful stay at Four Points. I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends when they are in the area. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYC2014 Overcharged - Refund was a pain
got credit card statement .. got charged twice ... had to call and spend 30 mins to get a refund ... front desk created a second reservation and called my reservation a "NO SHOW " ... never got offered any apology from the staff.
Decent pricing ... clean rooms ... didn't really get a chance to use any of the facilities ...
View of the back of an industrial building from the room ...

Rated 2 out of 5 by Marlena Excellent customer service...... BUT
The staff and service that was provided was excellent; however, the hotel itself was not satisfactory. Everything was too small, tight or dark. The lobby is small, the bar area is small the elevators and hallways are small and dark. The air conditioner did not work properly, the sink was clogged and the bathroom was extremely small with no shelving. This simply was not a comfortable hotel

Rated 4 out of 5 by C100 Great hotel in great location
The hotel is in a very convenient location to many things. The rooms are small but furnished functionally. Very clean. Very friendly staff. We appreciated the luggage storage after we checked out. Breakfast offered a nice variety and the service was very friendly.
The only irritant were the very slow elevators but it probably can´t be helped in an old building. Everything else top notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robbie74 Perfect perfect perfect
This hotel is in the perfect location, has perfect amenities, and the customer service is perfect! Being an SPG member and getting a free upgrade is one thing, but to be put in a suite when staff found out it was our anniversary is another! And to top it off, free chamapgend and chocolate covered starwberries! This will be the ONLY property I stay in anytime I visit NYC! You should too!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ttich Early checkin was great
I have stayed at other SPG properties in NYC. I wouldn't necessarily rate the property or location better than some others. However, the people here are top-notch.
I had stayed at a friends place the night before checking in. Since I had my luggage with me I decided to stop by the hotel at 8:00am to check it. I was happily surprised that they already had my room available.

What a wonderful place. Just within blocks of everything around Times Square. We were there the week of the snow storm that shut NYC down for a day. The hotel was so accommodating the entire week. The manager takes great care of the employees......and it shows!! Thank you for a wonderful week in the Big Apple!!
PS: The late night cupcakes made the week that much better!!!!

I recently stayed here overnight with my Mom prior to going to an early taping for Anderson Cooper. This hotel was so convenient to Port Authority as it is about a half block away! Beds and pillow so comfortable!
The handles on the sink and shower in my room were a little hard to turn on. This could be a problem for someone who has a weak grip. Would definitely stay here again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Locke Further from Times Square than I expected
When I did a search for hotels in Times Sq., this hotel popped up. It's by no means in Times Sq., it's blocks away. Lobby is very cramped and no sense of where the line starts. Checked in and out by a girl named "Terry", she was very professional! Answered all my questions....great job!
Bed and linens were very comfortable. Bathroom very clean. Free bottled water was great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by cwib The staff were fabulous and helpful
The room was small. The lobby was extremely small. The location was disappointing. The "free guest buffet" was disappointing - very spicy food and not much variety. The street noise was very loud due to the location across the street from the bus garage. The location was fair but did not enjoy walking by the corrections parole office on our way to Times Square.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jayboogie Location and Facilities to be considered
I thought the room relatively small. I was really annoyed with the set of the shower, the swing direction of the door coupled with how the warmest water setting came on. A situation that allowed alot of water to leak on the floor. Additionally, I didn't like being approached by clients of the New York Parole Building situated next door and in plain view out of my window.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlleyCat Decent Room & Location for the Price
The room was small but comfortable. I am not certain that the quilt and comforter were clean; I noticed at least one spot. The location is very good - near Times Square, the Port Authority Building, and a subway hub. On the other hand, it is down the block from a Parole Office and a peep show, and unsavory characters hang out on that block and across the street at night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Helspers Good Time to Visit NYC
Although a seasoned traveler, I have never spent a night in NYC. With that said, the location/proximity to Times Square and the Theater District is excellent. The location of the hotel is not great, but it's NYC. The rooms are small (to be expected) but well laid out. Shower pressure is OK+ and the beds/pillows are comfortable. For the price we paid, an excellent value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BusinessTraveler44 Good location
The hotel is what I would expect from a Four Points. My room was clean. I had limited interaction with the staff but they were very nice and helpful. The big negative for me is that my room had a very loud air-conditioning unit (an under the window unit) which made it impossible for me to sleep, perhaps because the room was so small that the unit was right next to me.
