Centrally located to time square but overall inside was very noisy, doors slammed, and loud band next door until 3 or 4 in the morning. Did not sleep, no ice on second floor.

I love the location. The rooms are basic but everything is so clean. I wish the exterior sidewalk was more cared for..so conjested and dirty but that's not uncommon.

The light on the nightstand was out. Which made the room kind of dark. The shower floor got very wet when we showered because the ledge wasn’t high enough to keep the water in, therefore we had to use extra towels to keep it dry. Other than that it was okay.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Gallivant. I stayed in a king size room by myself and it was plenty of space for me (especially when you consider that NYC hotel rooms are all on the small side). The staff was all so friendly and helpful. I look forward to staying here again on subsequent trips to the city!

I loved the location in the Theater District. Gallivant was very clean and everything in my room was updated and convenient. There was a lot of construction in the area around the hotel, typical NYC, but I felt safe.

Junky rooms, paid for “multiple views “ had one window looking out to a building. Also did not get a queen bed. Furniture and wall paint chipped and peeling. Front desk was very rude, unhappy with their job, super disappointed
