Row NYC – Hotel Review
New York City’s Times Square is famous for its numerous attractions, among them towering billboards, eccentric street performers, and of course, the New Year’s Eve celebration.
One of the many hotels that line the world-famous area is the Row NYC, located a block away from all the lights, hustle, and bustle of the brightly-lit Times Square.
I stepped in off the street as a liveried doorman held open the door for me, and took the elevator one floor up to the hotel’s lobby. The space was packed, and with just two receptionists behind the front desk, it was severely under-staffed, as the line was long and getting attended to took around half an hour.
Once started, however, check-in was a brief process, and soon I was off to my room. The elevators were somewhat unique: guests enter the floor number they wish to go to on a keypad, and are then directed to a specific elevator. As a result, the elevator cabs don’t have the traditional floor buttons, .
Scenes of New York were featured on the brightly colored wallpaper, which also disguised the door to my Penthouse Suite.
The living room area included a couch and cozy chair that faced a wall mounted 50” LCD TV. Shelves adorned with various pottery pieces and picture books of New York City were present throughout the room.
