Sleeping on a bench in Penn Station might be more comfortable than a night in the Regency Inn & Suites, an aging hotel located across the street from the transportation hub. After a previous run as a Howard Johnson, this 1920s budget inn is now screaming for renovations—or at least a good pressure wash. Its lobby is a narrow waiting room with a lone, beat-up leather couch and cracking, scuffed marble floors. Tight, dirty hallways lead to the 117 rooms, which lack both space and hygienic sparkle. Bathrooms consist of a stand-up shower, instead of the standard tub, and windows from all seven floors look onto the brick walls of nearby buildings. And despite a free Continental breakfast and a few coffee makers, the “café”—with low ceilings and card tables—looks more like a dingy pool hall than a place to eat. These missteps in presentation simply aren’t outweighed by the hotel’s central location—within walking distance from Herald Square shopping and the theater district.Pros
If Macy’s or the Garden is on your itinerary, at least this hotel is right nearby.
The dingy appearance and out-of-date amenities, like an elevator barely big enough for two adults, may disappoint most travelers.
