A few weeks ago, due to weather conditions, I was unexpectedly stuck in NYC overnight. Of course, one can’t really be “stuck” in the city that never sleeps. I decided to embrace the overnight stay and take advantage of being in the city alone for the evening. Based on a recommendation from a friend, I decided to book the Row NYC hotel online from the airport, and purchased a ticket to see the musical Waitress on Broadway. It was the perfect reasonably priced NYC hotel for my quick stay, and was so convenient.

Review of the Row NYC Hotel in Times Square
Location of the Row NYC Hotel
If you are looking for the perfect location for your NYC vacation, the Row NYC is definitely a wonderful option. Since I only had an overnight in the city, I wanted to be able to easily walk over to the theater. The Row NYC is located right in Times Square, and was only a two minute walk from the theater. The hotel does offer off-site valet parking, if you are driving into the city.
Rooms at the Row NYC Hotel
When I booked my hotel room, I had a few options of room types. Ultimately, since I was by myself, I opted for the most basic of options – the standard room with one bed. Other options include Superior, Deluxe City View, Premium City View, Executive Suites, and Penthouse Suites.
Admittedly, my room was tiny, but that’s not surprising for such a central NYC location. It was perfect for my purposes, however, because I really just needed a place to spend the night. The room included such amenities as free WiFi, a hairdryer, a television, a comfortable bed, and a work desk.
Amenities at the Row NYC Hotel
In addition to the location, there are some great hotel amenities at the Row NYC. My room, booked through the hotel, included a complimentary breakfast at District M. I was able to get a beverage, pastry, and fruit for my breakfast before I headed out to the airport.
There’s also a fitness center, a food hall, a shop, and a cycle studio in the building. In the lobby, you’ll find a group of iMacs and printers that can be used. I headed there to print out my Broadway ticket confirmation.
Resort Fee (Facilities Fee at the Row NYC Hotel)
When you book your stay at the Row NYC, you’ll find that they charge a resort/facilities fee per night. During my stay, it was $30 plus taxes each night. The facilities fee does include a few benefits, including filtered water in the hotel (I had a two plastic cups in my room to fill with the water down the hall). You’ll also get some discounts at local businesses.
Row NYC Restaurants
While you’ll be steps away from countless delicious restaurants, there are also some great options available to you. I loved having lunch at City Kitchen, a small food hall that offers several kiosks from local NYC establishments. It’s a busy spot during the day, and it was so convenient to grab a quick lunch.
The hotel also offers the District M lounge, which is a cafe throughout the day and a bar in the evenings. If you are looking for a quick drink before heading out or going to bed, it’s a great location.
