    For me it was a good experience. Conveniently located. The room itself was big enough, with a nice heater, a nice bathroom, good TV, good internet ( although at times it was slow). Easy check-in and check-out ( though I wish they had a noon check-out instead)

    Good location, poor heater ”
    I almost had no complaint about this hotel if only the heater was working properly. After three technicians trying to fix it and still emitting cool instead of warm air, I gave up complaining and settled with the cold room for 5 days staying there. Other than that, everything is great.

    Good location and clean”
    It was nice and clean, the location was right where we needed to be. Be aware they charge a fee just for being in the hotel and it is charged per day - something silly like a "destination fee". Just another way to get more money out of you! It is NOT included when you pre-pay and it is NOT included when you are comparing rates.

    Great Location, Staff & Facilities”
    We traveled in a group of 4 comprising; a 12-year-old, a 16-year-old and my wife and I. We absolutely loved this hotel. It was in a great location 5mins walk to central park and 20mins walk to Time Square. There were sooo many food places and stores nearby to quickly go out and grab something to either eat out or take back to the room. The pool was the icing on the cake and allowed us to take a break around 4-6pm each day to relax before heading out again in the evening. The pool was open between 10 am and 7:30 pm each day. The room itself (a standard 2 x double beds) was large with lots of moving space around the beds, good pressure shower and lots of TV channels. Tea and coffee were available in the room for free and room service could be ordered from the restaurant downstairs. The hotel staff were ace, the concierge provided us with lots of travel advice and tips. I would highly recommend for families.

    Clickity clack the noise attacks”
    Stayed here for 2 nights in January, the location was great and gave us the true New York experience, as in the city that never sleeps. The elevator or something makes a banging noise every minute or 2, when I brought this up since between the 2 of us we got 3 hours sleep total one night we were told me could pay an additional 50$ us to move rooms. It’s a decent place but I wouldn’t stay here again just since I’m not a robot and need sleep to function. Save the money you’ll spend on monsters and 4$ coffees and just invest in a quieter hotel. Or throw your pots and pans in the dryer while you sleep at home to get accustomed to this noise before you get here

    Our corner double bed room is spacious, clean and comfortable. The bathroom comes with a bath tub. It will be good if the shower head is not fixed on the wall, but allows user to move around for easier use. Location is ideal, with cafes, Supermarket, subway station and Central Park within minutes of walking. Overall a wonderful stay.

    Affordable, convenient location in NYC”
    I would highly recommend the Watson Hotel in NYC, midtown west. We were within walking distance to subway stations and Central park. We traveled around the city via subway to all our points of interest which were in close proximity. The hotel was clean and comfortable with excellent service from all the staff and the concierge was very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. She gave us very good guidance as to how to navigate the city to via walking and using the subway. I would highly recommend Agoda and this hotel. Excellent value for money and the hotel is most conveniently located close to food outlets, pharmacies, coffee cafe's and all main points of interest. We even felt safe using the subway and walking in the area late at night. We will stay at the Watson for our next visit to NYC!

    Weekend getaway.”
    Had a great experience at the Watson Hotel this past weekend. We had 2 1/2 days to do as much as possible. The Watson Hotel’s location is great! Close to Central Park and Time Square. We were able to walk pretty much everywhere we needed to. Hotel was clean and comfortable. We really have no complaints. Something to note is that the thermostat was not working well enough to regulate the room temperature. But we just opened the windows and the room was nice and cool. The staff was good whenever we needed something. Overall, we really had a great weekend and enjoyed our stay at the Watson Hotel.

    Hotel that exceeded our expectations.”
    This hotel exceeded our expectations in more ways than one. First the location is great. It's close to all main attractions, central park, Times square, Rockefeller center etc but far enough away that it's quieter in surrounding area. We had a king size room which was more than big enough for us as a couple. With all you need for your stay. Breakfast was adequate enough and with plenty of choice and bar area was plesant with relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful during our stay. The surrounding area had plenty of choices food wise on 9th and 10th avenue. Not only for breakfast but for lunch and dinner options too. For the money we payed for our 4 day weekend we couldn't of been happier with our stay and would recommend in the future.

    I had a double double bed room. I thought from the picture my room would be tight quarters but that was not the case at all. We only stayed one night but our room was comfortable and quiet. We were easily able to walk to Radio City Music Hall, Time Square, Bryant Park and Rockefeller Center. The people working were friendly and helpful. Also, if you park next door and have your ticket validated you receive a discount. I live in the Boston area and have paid more for a parking garage for a few hours than I did for 24 hour parking in NY! Lastly there are plenty of places to eat nearby and it cost us nothing to store our luggage for a few hours before we actually left. Overall, I would stay here again.

    Great location. Safe upscale commercial neighborhood. Easy to find by taxi. Friendly staff. Clean spacious rooms. Very nice espresso maker. But our room had no fridge. The hotel itself is an old property, probably even historic. So I didn’t mind the old fashioned feel of the place. The elevator looked vintage. A walking distance to Central Park, 5th Ave and everything else in midtown Manhattan. Super great place to stay!

    The staff isn't into listening to clients, watch out for hiding fees”
    The hotel is well located, but watch out for hiding fees, for my experience, I had to pay a mandatory 20 dollars per night just because of the amenities at the hotel (they call it destination fee), regardless if you gonna use them or not, there's a major lack of transparency, and the hotel lure people with very good prices than you end up paying more than the competition, I tried to talk to the front desk at first, they weren't polite, and snobby about it, they treat the customers like they're stupid, after that I talked to the manager, but he wasn't better, and started giving me life lessons, how I should use my credit card better, a joke... To be fare the hotel is clean, and the room is spacious, but watch out to not empty your wallet.
