Travelers booking a room at a Comfort Inn most likely know what to expect—and what not to. But what this link in the hotel chain lacks in size and modern furnishings, it makes up for in location and even a few perks. Hovering just beyond Times Square, the hotel is perfectly positioned for first-time visitors looking to experience all of New York City’s quintessential, flashy tourist attractions. Though the list of in-room amenities is puny—guests receive a coffee maker and free java—there are a few surprising extras, including free WiFi Internet access, free deluxe continental breakfast and free calls within the United States. For business travelers on a budget, the 24-hour business center offers free incoming faxes, computers and an additional A/V-equipped meeting room. And if barreling through crowds just to get back to your room isn't enough of a work out, the hotel even has its own exercise room.Pros
Central location and affordable rates.
Times Square is never quiet—and the view from the hotel's 46th St. side is nothing spectacular—so request a room in the back.
