The Hotel Pennsylvania is located opposite Penn Station at 401 7th Avenue. Constructed in 1919, guests will stay in a building full of history. William Faulkner once wrote there, Glenn Miller performed there at the peak of the swing era. His hit song "Pennsylvania 6-5000" was named after the hotel's phone number.
Today the hotel caters to business and leisure travelers. For a nominal fee, Hotel Pennsylvania even welcomes your canine friends. Business travelers may stay in luxurious Penn 500 rooms with access to a lounge with breakfast, coffee, and computer facilities. A 24-hour business center is also available. All guests can enjoy the four on-site restaurants, including Statler Grill, a New York steakhouse, Lindy's Restaurant, with New York cheesecake, and the bistros City Perk and Tim Hortons. Visitors receive passes to the neighboring Bally Total Fitness center, with gym equipment and an Olympic-size pool. Airport shuttle service to the hotel can be arranged and valet parking is available.
In the heart of Manhattan, the Penn is a great base to explore New York. The Empire State Building offers stunning views of the city just a block away, or you can catch a show at the nearby Madison Square Garden. You can also walk to Times Square to go shopping, visit museums and enjoy the buzz of the city, or wander down Broadway and browse the theaters.
I loved the position of the hotel and the comfort of the bed. That's all you needed really , it wasn't a big room but you knew That going in , the water was hot for such a big hotel and Whenever l needed help from reception etc it was not a problem.
Didn't find the wifi coverage very good.
how central it was
staff seemed to be giving out to people a lot on the day I was there. The staff were efficient but not the friendliest
internal decoration needs updating, rooms and corridors very b asic
The hotel is to big.
