Parking is pricey and costs extra for SUVs
Opened in 2014, the 293-room Homewood Suites by Hilton is the brand’s first entry into New York City, offering modern suite-like accommodations for budget-minded travelers. Built on the former site of a parking lot, the 22-story hotel offers a glimmer of modernity on a somewhat gloomy and busy block that's within walking distance of Times Square and Madison Square Garden. Free perks include daily breakfast and a 24-hour lobby coffee station and the lobby, rooftop terrace, and rooms with kitchenettes and sofa beds create a homey feel. Nearby chain hotels, such as the Courtyard by Marriott, offer similar rates and are worth considering since guests here have complained of street noise and the smallish bathrooms.
A modern branded hotel with a buzzing lobby and plentiful public spaces for socializing and relaxing
Opened in 2014, the 22-story Homewood Suites by Hilton was
built on the site of a former parking lot in Manhattan’s Garment District. The
property sits on a busy, lackluster block that’s devoid of stylish restaurants
and shops, yet it is within walking distance to the action of Times Square, the
Theater District, and shopping at New York’s iconic Macy’s.
Inside, the two-story lobby serves as the hotel’s social hub.
Constantly abuzz with a mix of families, foreign tourists, and business
travelers, it's where a coffee station, a long communal table for getting work done, and a TV by a two-sided fireplace can be found. A quieter seating area is arranged around a soaring water
wall and an additional collection of four TVs can be found in a theater-type nook
with outlet-equipped seating and views of the street. Those seeking fresh air can hide out in pod-like
chairs in the courtyard garden on the ground level, or take in the views from
the rooftop terrace -- where there’s a glimpse of the Empire State Building.
Ample use of warm woods, neutral colors, and oversized
basket-weave chandeliers give the lobby a homey and organic vibe, and the theme continues into the rooms.
Spacious by New York standards, they cater to families with sofa beds and
kitchenettes, but lack the residential vibe, square footage, and separate
living rooms (except for the one-bedrooms suites) found at many other extended stay
hotels in the city.
On a busy block in the heart of the Garment District, across the street from a Courtyard by Marriott and within walking distance of Penn Station and Times Square
The hotel sits on a busy block in Manhattan's Garment District. In the immediate area there's a Courtyard by Marriott, and a handful of fast-food restaurants and cafes. It's not a particularly attractive area, but it is convenient. The hotel is within walking distance of the subways and trains of Penn Station, Times Square, and the Theater District, and conference attendees will appreciate its proximity to the Javits Center.

Studio suites with kitchenettes, working desks, and flat-screen TVs
The Homewood Suite’s 293 rooms are comprised mostly of studio
suites ranging in size from 270 to 410 square feet and equipped with either one
king or two queen beds. The hotel also has one-bedroom suites, which feature
separate living rooms, located on the second floor. Rooms
are designed for extended stays and budget-conscious travelers and families.
They feature sleeper sofas and kitchenettes equipped with microwaves, dishwashers, two-burner stovetops, stainless steel refrigerators, white cabinetry, and
granite countertops with stylish glass-tile back splashes. They are stocked with
coffeemakers and all the necessary equipment for preparing simple meals.
The rooms are designed to evoke a homey atmosphere and are
finished in neutral tones with mahogany-colored hardwood floors, dark-wood
armoires with safes, working desks with white laminate tops, soft beige walls
and window shades, and tourmaline blue sofas with matching contemporary canvas
artwork. Beds are outfitted simply and neatly
with crisp white linens and backed by oversized dark-wood headboards with built-in reading lamps and floating bedside tables. Bathrooms are on the small side,
with stall showers (only a few rooms have tubs), rectangular
vessel sinks, basic white towels, and Neutrogena toiletries.
A large fitness center, 24-hour laundry, and two options for lounging outdoors
The hotel offers a variety of public spaces including a large, airy fitness center with two-story ceilings, colorful murals, and a variety of cardio equipment and weights. Also located on the ground floor of the hotel are a modern business center with two computer stations, a 24-hour guest laundry room, a high-tech board room, meeting space, and a walled courtyard with potted greenery and pod-like chairs.
The hotel’s dual-room dining space serves a buffet breakfast daily. Although the buffet tends to get crowded during peak hours, the restaurant offers ample seating at separate tables and banquettes along the walls. For those looking for a quick bite, there’s a pantry nook in the lobby stocked with everything from candy bars and soda to chips and microwavable items that can be prepared in the guest rooms. Guests can also find room to roam and relax on the spacious rooftop terrace.
