The hotel is just off times square. If your looking for value and comfort this is the place to stay. This was my second time and I had recommended it to my friends who were not disappointed. I will always return to this hotel on any future visits to New York. The restaurant on the ground floor is great value and and the food is great.“GREAT LOCATION!!!”Hotel review by: kikiriasFrom:montreal,quebecDate: Nov 24, 2009The hotel was located in the heart of Times Square, within walking distance to everything, it was clean, the staff was nice, we had no problems and no complains, we felt safe walking around past midnight and everything was literally steps away, we saw so much and did so many activities, the hop on/hop off bus was barely a minute away and we took advantage of every moment we had there…Not the most luxurious hotel there, but when your intentions are to hit the road early and go back very late, then it was just perfect!!!“Wonderful Oasis”Hotel review by: monkeytrashman From: Oklahoma CityDate: Aug 30, 2009

We were treated very professionally. I booked the room online, with the option to upgrade the day of arrival for just $19 more. The room and bathroom were quite clean. They were fully stocked with all the usual amenties.We did hear noise from area construction on the street below. You are in a major city not in the middle of the countryside. You have to expect street noise.The location of this Radisson was perfect for our needs. We were within walking distance of the 5th Avenue shopping, Rockefeller Plaza, 42nd Street and Central Park.After our great experience, I would not hesitate to recommend the Radisson on Lexington.“Wonderful customer service, great location” Hotel review by: Egglady From: Rochester NY Date: Oct 31, 2009

While this hotel could use some updating, it is in a perfect location in Midtown Manhatten, close to Times Square, the UN, and Grand Central Station. The staff are friendly and helpful, something you do not always get at hotels in New York! Rates are reasonable, food is good, and rooms are comfortable and clean.“excellent and perfect.” Hotel review by: PNE260_9 From: Preston Date: Sep 2, 2009

The hotel is an excellent base,it’s clean comfortable very friendly & central,it cant be that bad if Cabin Crew from Quatar airways and tennis players for the U.S. open use it !!! The room was perfectly adequate for 2 of us the bed was comfy the shower / bathroom excellent and watching the NY Yankees in HD on a 42 incher was better than a proxy portable u sometimes get !! Iron & board, safe,hair dryer and Sony radio alarm clock also provided. Bloomies 11 blocks away, Grand Central 5,Times Square 10min walk. 4 Irish bars close by especially “The Perfect Pint” on 45th between 2nd & 3rd the rooftop terrace is a fantastic way to enjoy the black stuff with superb food. Be sure to buy a City Sights bus pass the tours are excellent and one of the stops is 2 mins fron the Rad.We had a superb time in NYC with no complaints whatsoever When checking out $2 per bag for luggage room,if you need it. I would’nt hesitate recommending this hotel to anybodyPoor:“Don’t do it!” Hotel review by: ladycourt78 From: Chicago Date: Jan 12, 2010

The location is nice but thats the only nice thing about the actual hotel, the rooms were also dirty (sheets stained-had been washed just clearly not bleached), the bathroom had mold on the ceiling, additionally the bed linens were cheap and I’m pretty sure the one extra blanket I got hadn’t been washed. Mind you it was New Years so they were really busy but still! Don’t stay here! I payed over 300/night for this place and if you are considering paying over 100/night DON”T DO IT!.“Find another hotel!” Hotel review by: bosswheel From: Indiana Date: Dec 14, 2009

What a disaster. We could not even sit straight on the toilet because there was a radiator directly in front of the toilet. Granted, it was a cold weekend in NYC, but it felt like there was a window open in our room. Could not believe it. Moved rooms, did not help. I am usually very easy to please, and this is my first post, but did now want other people to have their vacation ruined.
