The location of the hotel is very convenient. It's not smack dab in the middle of Times Square so you're not swallowed by the crowd the moment you step out of the hotel, but it's close enough that you're only steps away from the flashy billboards. It's also right beside the New Amsterdam Theatre where Aladdin is currently showing -...

Kathryn G, Thank you for the 5 star review! We love being a part of the theater scene (hence the name) and that we fit just what you needed.

My girlfriend surprised me with a last minute trip from December 27th to the 29th. I was going crazy looking for a hotel and I was looking for something under 300/night. I found Hotel Shocard on TripAdvisor. Really liked the pictures and it had a great price, at first I had some hesitation but after looking up where it was...

Great Location, right in Time Square. Great service, Carmen is the best! Rooms were small but comfortable, clean and incredibly chic. I can't complain about the city noise because from our room we couldn't hear a thing. Definitely will come back and will 100% recommend.

The room was so small, it was claustrophobic. The hot water were coming and going. The room was never vacuumed. Every day was a surprise regarding the towels combination I received. Except for the location and the friendly and accommodating staff, there's no real reason to book this hotel.

Thank Marina G
Management response:

Marina G, I am sorry to hear about the experience you had. As conveyed in past reviews, what you saw is not our standard and will be addressed immediately. I would appreciate the opportunity to show you how great we can be. Please feel free to reach out if you find yourself in NYC again. My email is aluke@hotelshocardnyc.com.

Second time in New York. I am still shocked by this hotel. For the location the price was a steal. Stayed for 4 nights, and my stay would rival any other hotel! I have read the other reviews complaining about the size of the rooms, I had a very large counter space for all my things, adequate space to move...

I highly recommend Hotel Shocard! Amazing location. Walking distance to Times Square and Broadway shows. Such a fun feel to the place! Rooms are small but perfect and the staff is so friendly and helpful. Carmen makes you feel right at home! Will definitely stay here again!

We had an unexpected change in plans and needed a hotel on one of the busiest nights. We were turned away by multiple hotels and dismissed very quickly by them. Whitney at the front desk was warm, welcoming and accommodating. She went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Even...

We traveled to Manhattan to attend an event for my husband's birthday. We found this place on Booking.com for a very reasonable price. However on the site it said my credit card wouldn't be charged until check-in. That was false. Immediately my credit card was charged the cost of the room plus an additional $100. While I was checking in...

Sure, the room was small but this is central Manhattan where the rent must be astronomical and how much time do you want to spend in the room anyway?

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
