Rated 1 out of 5 by hellot What happened to this hotel?
I stayed in this hotel many times, but this stay was terrible. I was not treated as a gold member. The line for a counter was longer and slower than the one for not a gold member guests. The room was more terrible. Hairdryer was broken, no body shampoo and face towels. I'm really disappointed. I'm even wondering if the manager has been changed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Val60 This hotel was horrible
The room was not appealing for the amount of money that I spent. The shower walls need to be scrubbed and cleaned the entrance to the door needed to be fixed and freshen up with paint in the bathroom... The carpet smelled the only thing good about this hotel was that it was in a good location and I've stayed there in 2007 my room was nowhere near like this instead of you trying to renovate the outside renovate the inside... it didn't fit or seem to be a 5-star hotel

"ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE"
Sheraton hotel Times Square if you want to pay top dollar for hotel in Manhattan Times Square, please choose another starwood hotel in the area, they run it like a bed and breakfast or holiday inn express. First and foremost your Sheraton Time Square is a complete and utterly disgrace to the brand image of what a Sheraton is worldwide. Never have I ever seen such poor service from a front desk staff at a platinum check-in. what I expect when I arrive to any Starwood hotel as just the minimum:
A) the room should be ready by 3pm regardless. B) A service level to take a minute, and think before saying something like there is no room available.
C) a caring attitude to your loyal customers (i.e. platinum and gold.) would you like to have a dinner on us before we prepare your room
D) not trying their best to offer a suite upgrade, and when I request them to try and use a Suite Night AWARD make an effort to accommodate my request, or at least give me a room to store my luggage and valuables. And
E) atleast call to offer a bottle of wine, free massage at the spa or something to compensate - for me waiting at the lobby.
Its either one or two things that amazes me that your staff are not trained to get the basics right:
a) the people don't have a clue about customer service or are not trained to deliver a service.
b) they don't think outside of the box to atleast make an effort.
C) No one wants to hear an excuse why the rooms are not ready, not my problem. and FINALLY. not even " how was your stay with us Mr. so and so"
would you like me to call the manager so you could have a chat. NOTHING ZERO CUSTOMER SERVICE... Fire the team that checked me in and out....

My wife and I travelled from the UK and stayed at hotel for 5 nights to celebrate her 40th birthday.
We were initially concerned by the negative comments on the website. I am also a frequent traveller so am used to staying in nice hotels so was unnerved by the comments.
In fact the negative comments could not have been further from the truth in our experience. In our experience we could not have had a more pleasant stay and so I felt compelled to write appositive review.
We were welcomed with fresh fruit, a celebration cake and a bottle of fizzy wine. In addition we were given free WiFi and complimentary bottles of water. In addition we had an amazing room overlooking Times Square and there was no noise.
All this was courtesy of the very responsive and very nice Nicole and Rinad who made our stay most pleasant. They both deserve a medal for their outstanding approach to customer service. A very warm thank you to them both as they made a great holiday into an amazing holiday my wife and I will never forget.
The hotel itself is in a great location for trains, Times Square, Central Park, MoMa, Top of the Rock. You don't need to get the train much unless you need to go to lower Manhatten, (ground zero etc.) For food would recommend 9th Avenue with lots of local food shops that don't cost an arm and a leg, and the food carts for breakfast. Avoid the halal food carts - food was tasteless.
I would recommend and would stay here again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by mrsmrtguy Managers are nonresponsive - Always in Meetings
Stayed here a few times and never really had any incidents. This past trip the noise level was really bad and it seems like you can hear every single conversation and noise in the hallway as if the door wasnt even closed. I tried repeatedly to contact and call a manager and left voicemail as well but every time the managers are unavailable, in meetings, or will call back but never do.
Just called a few hours ago again, still no reply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nansi Great location; friendly staff
I've stayed at this hotel before, and love the location. It's within walking distance of Central Park and Times Square, as well as Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center. The room was comfortable (NYC rooms are small, no matter which hotel you stay in, unless you want to pay an arm and a leg) and very clean. Staff members were all friendly, from the doorman to reception to parking to housecleaning. Loved the fact that I could park my car there (yes, for an additional fee, but hey - this is NY!). We had a room on a high floor, with a view of the Central Park treetops -- so we also had QUIET for sleeping. For Starwood members, there's a Club Room which offers happy hour and breakfast. I missed happy hour (walking the city), but made it to breakfast. I wish they had eggs, bacon and sausage - but what they provided was sufficient. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fab23 needs a refurb, no pool/spa
The hotel does not offer much apart from the location, no swimming pool or spa, no breakfast on the spg stay paid with points. Rooms could do with some renovation to more up to date showers, new carpet and bathroom doors etc.
