Row NYC Rating: 4.0 Pearls
Times Square, Manhattan, New York City

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • A block from Times Square
  • Within easy walking distance of Broadway theaters, popular sights and subway lines
  • Contemporary rooms feature flat-screen TVs and iPod docks
  • Sleek fitness center has cardio machines with individual TVs, weight-training machines, and free weights
  • District M serves pizza and cocktails in the evenings
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Competitive rates for the area

Cons

  • No pets allowed (a pro for some!)
  • No in-room coffeemakers
  • Lobby can get crowded
  • Standard Rooms can be quite small
  • Free Wi-Fi is only for one device at a time
  • Thin walls

Bottom Line

This massive, modern hotel located a block from Times Square was rebranded as the Row NYC in 2014. It's one of the best hotels for the price in this touristy area, and rooms have fresh, contemporary style (picture Euro Top platform beds with white bedding, and bright accent walls in red, yellow, orange, or green -- the colors of New York City traffic). Wi-Fi is free, modern technology amenities include iPod docks and 32-inch flat-screen TVs with HBO, and the elevators are fast (as they need to be at a 28-floor hotel with 1,300 rooms). For on-site dining, District M operates as a cafe during the day and opens as a pizza bar and cocktail lounge in the evening. Just know that Standard Rooms can be quite small, there are no coffeemakers, and the lobby can get quite crowded, especially during check-in.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just a short walk from Times Square

Milford Plaza is located on 8th Avenue in the Times Square area of Midtown. The hotel shares its stretch of street with numerous shops, offices, food cart vendors, and tons of pedestrians (both tourists and business people, day and night).

Times Square is arguably New York's main attraction, especially for first-timers, and is busy around the clock. Food, souvenir shops, and sightseeing options are endless, but the sheer volume of bike and foot traffic can induce sensory overload. However, the area is served by myriad subway lines, making it a convenient base for exploring the city's sights, both on foot and via public transportation.

  • 30-minute drive to LaGuardia Airport
  • 50-minute drive to John F. Kennedy Airport
  • 50-minute drive to Newark Airport
  • Within blocks of numerous subway lines
  • 5-minute walk to the center of Times Square
  • 12-minute walk to Bryant Park and the New York Public Library
  • 13-minute walk to Penn Station
  • 13-minute walk to Rockefeller Center
  • 14-minute walk to Central Park and Columbus Circle
  • 16-minute walk to Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
  • 18-minute walk to St. Patrick's Cathedral
  • 19-minute walk to the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Station
  • 19-minute walk to the Empire State Building
  • 11-minute subway ride to the High Line and the Chelsea Market
  • 12-minute subway ride to Flatiron Building
  • 13-minute subway ride to Union Square
  • 13-minute subway ride to the West Village and the Washington Square Park
