Element New York Times Square West
Prepare for a long wait for the lifts!
Prepare for a long wait for the lifts. Three lifts and at 8.30am two of them are being used by housekeeping! Twenty minute wait to get from the 36th floor down to reception. On several occasions we walked down the 36 flights of stairs rather than wasting time waiting for the lift. Then there is the use of paper plates and plastic cups and cutlery at breakfast - very environmentally friendly!! Also be prepared to stand and eat your breakfast (if you can find a space). Not enough seating in the breakfast room.

Very Good8.0
Hotel in good location, but elevators a mager prob
The main problem with the Element Times square is the elevators. The only time all 3 work is in the middle of the night. during the day 1 is locked out for use by the staff. I can take 20 mins to get to the lobby. If your room is in the middle of the hotels 40 floors the only way to get in an elevator is to get in when it goes up and then ride it to the top and then back down. The day we checked out 1 elevator was locked out for staff and 1 was not working leaving 1 for the total use of all hotel guest. It was a night mare trying to get down to the lobby with 4 bags. Probably will not use this hotel again.
