Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • One block from beautiful, Madison Square Park
  • On-site restaurant, San Rocco
  • Room service until 10 p.m.
  • 10-minute walk to the Empire State Building
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • One to four blocks from five subway lines

Cons

Bottom Line

Made up of 124 comfortable guest rooms and a cramped gym in the far outskirts of Chelsea (more reasonably, the Flatiron District), this Wyndham is a fair pick, for the price. Its only one block from the locally loved Madison Square Park and its surrounding subway stations, shops, and restaurants, but a long way from Chelsea's famous art galleries.

Location

Located near commercial Flatiron's westernmost border, the Wyndham is on a quiet, but very convenient street near ample great restaurants.

Airport Transportation

About 30 to 90 minutes from three airports

New York has three nearby airports: JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark (in New Jersey). Getting to town from JFK or LaGuardia is usually more convenient than getting there from Newark, but travel times are heavily dependent on the time of day and traffic conditions. From JFK, a taxi to anywhere in Manhattan costs a flat rate of $45 and takes around an hour in average conditions. From LaGuardia, a metered cab ride to midtown Manhattan costs about $40 and can take 30 minutes if traffic is light, three times that if it's bad. Rides from Newark cost at least $40 (plus tolls) and can take more than 90 minutes. It's customary to tip your driver 15 to 25 percent.

Those looking to save some cash can use the privately run shuttle buses that are available at all three airports for about $14 per person. For more information on the shuttles, go to Super Shuttle or New York Airport Service. Public transit is also available for as little as $7 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of lugging bags up and down stairways.
