I wish they would have been more clear about their policy to enter the dining room. I had brought my vaccination card down but apparently needed my Photo ID as well, so I had to return to the room and come back down before being allowed in. I am not upset that they were thorough; in fact, I’m glad they were. They just should have better informed guests of the policy.

It’s ok for what it is a place to sleep, in NYC you don’t spend that much time in the hotel, complementary breakfast was a plus, we found parking close by, good experience overall, we would comeback to the Riu Times Square and recommend to all our friends.

Visited 6/18/2021 for a week. Family of 5 kids ages 19 /13 /11 - oldest lives in NY so he was with us overnight a few nights. Still requiring masks inside hotel - fine with me, im a nurse - i can respect the rules. Selling point for me to return : the freakin breakfast... saved us $100 every morning. first couple of days they had a grab and go - hot and cold option, by the end of the stay they opened up the buffet dining rooms. The room : it was small... we dont stay in our rooms when we go places - so this was not a big deal. I opted not to pay the $ for a 2nd adjoining room - so thats that. 2 queens and sleeper sofa pullout. Reminded me of a carnival cruise ship room - just for reference. location : could not have been better. it is literally on restaurant row... anything you want to eat - right there. and the whole road closes in the evening so literally i didnt worry about the boys being out there/skateboarding like i am when we are walking round also 1 block from times square.. does not get more perfect. noise was minimal, foot traffic was minimal as compared to being ON times square. we enjoyed the west side of Manhattan so much- an unplanned surprise i never really knew about! Bike lanes / skateboarding lane along the waters edge. Perfection. Hotel was great. Clean. Restaurant/bar inside. Little café inside with street access as well to both. Things i asked for at the desk sometimes made it to the room before I did. i really dont have anything negative at all !
