We were a bit skeptical before checking into this hotel because of mixed reviews online. We ended up more than satisfied. It's not the fanciest hotel, but our room was clean and it had great views (from the 15th floor). It was easy to get around the city with so many subway stations around. Also, it was nice to be so close to great shopping, central park, and rockefeller center. Only a few blocks from Times Square, but it was nice to not be right in that area...to me, it's a tourist trap! :) Would definitely stay there again. If you can find a deal, I suggest this for your stay.

I have stayed at this hotel many times. It is right in Times Square. I like the little hotdog vendor on the corner.
Anyway, the hotel rooms are very small. This is not a 4 star hotel even though it says that it is a 4 star. I would say more like a 3-3.5 star at the most.
The food is way expensive. I suggest ordering out and using delivery(dot)com
There is a great bellman there who name is Eddie that goes out of his way to help anyway he can. He is a great asset to the hotel.
I would say stay here if all your other options fail.

This was the worst hotel stay I have ever had, and I am certainly disappointed given the standard of Sheraton hotels that I have come to expect as a frequent traveler. I arrived in mu room to be greeted by the smell of smoke in this ""smoke free"" hotel. After informing the front desk, I was told there was nothing that could be done, but they may be able to move me to another room in a couple of days. I visited the Duane Read store a block away and got some Febreeze and opened the window to air out the room. Upon my return, I attempted to adjust the temperature controls, which were broken. I was able to adjust the ""fan"" speed on the wall unit, but not the temperature itself. Two days later I was provided with a fan, and in the meantime was miserable. Even with the fan, it was still hot enough in the room that I had a great deal of trouble sleeping throughout the stay. Eventually, a call was placed to the manager, who assured me an engineer would be up to take a look at the AC unit promptly...I never saw him. Breakfast was ordered the night before and never received. The manager apologized profusely and informed me that he would clear the room service bill to date (not even the equivalent of one night's cost of a six night stay) and upon preparing to check out, found that this was not done either. Customer service was not in the vocabulary. Repeated commitments were made and never followed through with. There are much better hotels in the area at comparable prices. I ave stayed at the Hampton Inn, the Doubletree...and even the Ritz at Battery Park had comparable pricing, none of which I have ever had such issues with.
Do yourself a favor and explore your options.

We've stayed at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers several times now, and each time we are more than happy with the service we receive.
The first time, we read the mixed reviews and reserved a room with some trepidation. When we found our room on the 46th floor, we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, the room was a little small but most hotel rooms are in the city - that's normal. Service was fantastic, the room was clean, and we enjoyed a great stay.
Most recently, we stayed on the club-level floor and not only enjoyed the same stellar service, we also enjoyed a complimentary breakfast each morning over a relaxing morning paper. What a terrific way to start each day!
I would highly recommend this hotel anytime you need a room in the city.

Inept front desk. No concept of customer service. They turned down a FAMILY with reservations that were in line in front of me. They did this at 1am. They tried to stick me in a ""living space"" with a SOFA BED even though I had reservations for a real nonsmoking room with double beds. At 1am in the morning the best they could do was a sofa bed and their only excuse was ""This is New York, m'am."" I was livid. I am a preferred starwood member and promptly called the spg customer service. They managed to find me a decent room, although not what I had initially reserved, that same night, in the same hotel. The sheets were coarse and the pillows hard. No heavenly bed here. I would not bring my dog to this place, let alone ever come back.

This hotel is garbage. You'd be better off staying in a really cheap hotel because the service would be comparable.
Some of the finer points of Sheraton Towers: Small, dingy, dirty rooms; depressing views; no refrigerators in the rooms; attitude from staff who barely speak English; interminable wait for room service; bad food; everything--EVERYTHING--wayyyyy overpriced, even for NYC.
For added fun, try hailing a cab. The doormen at the front don't help you - people cut in front of one another and get into fights and the dumb-@ss doorman stands there. He doesn't care because he's got his cush union job.
If you choose to stay here you will be sorely disappointed. Keep looking. AVOID THIS HOTEL.
