Stayed for Thanks Giving Day Parad

Hotel was quiet yet in a great location. Room appeared clean though I assume it as dirty as all the other New York Hotels I have been in. A friend told me to put tv remote in plastic bag as soon as you arrive and use it through the bag. I think I am going to try it. Breakfast was great. Sitting in a comfy chair in the breakfast room with a cup of tea looking out on Times Square the most relaxing part of my day.

Can't fault it

I've just spent a week staying at the Riu Plaza Times Square and I can't think of a single complaint. We were only on the 3rd floor, but the windows are very good so you could hardly hear anything outside, besides horns... Which are incredibly loud in NYC and used with surprising regularity!! The breakfast is a buffet style which, as well as the usual American / English / continental options you'd expect, also rotates things like cheese and ham flat cakes, eggy bread etc. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, the rooms are smallish but perfectly serviceable. The showers are a good pressure with easy and consistent temperature control. Upon arrival (many hours late due to a cancelled flight) we couldn't unlock our suitcase padlock. I called down to reception at around 1:00am, and someone was in our room five minutes later with some very effective bolt-croppers! Throughout the week the staff have been polite, courteous and helpful. The hotel is immaculately clean throughout. On the one occasion that we had to wait around 3 minutes for a breakfast table, we were supplied champagne and orange and a comfy sofa! I thoroughly recommend Hotel Riu Plaza and thank then for a great stay.

Clean, classy, convenient

We splurged with a two night stay based on breakfast reviews and cleanliness. The extensive breakfast buffet is labeled with many options for every diner as well as an enclosed gluten free muffin area. The buffet itself would be at least $50/couple elsewhere, so it is convenient to enjoy breakfast as you watch NYC stroll by. Our king room was very clean, modern, and comfortable for our needs. No street noise and quality bedding.

I have tried to save a buck in NYC accommodations before, and I have been disappointed...so treat yourself! Many international patrons and I know Riu is a satisfying stay.
