Be Careful when choosing a Luggage Storage Facility As we are celebrating our 10th anniversary, we must stress the importance of doing your research before choosing a Luggage Storage provider. Some companies are only operating as temporary; some are really far out of the Midtown Manhattan area, While doing a quick search on Google we found Cubby on 23rd street who closed down 2 years ago… Another company called Luggage Storage NY on 46th st and 10th Ave has long been gone. Short Term Storage stow on 36th st came across as very friendly and nice people but are only operating on a limited schedule and won’t even tell you that they are located on the 3rd floor and without an elevator in the building...ooch... Another company called Only Luggage Storage on 42nd near Port Authority is no longer excepting luggage at their Travel agency. Manhattan Mini Storage is way far on 11th Ave. and not designed for daily luggage storage. Some bus companies will hold luggage but for customers only. We emphasize all this, so as a stressed out tourist or visitor you should avoid wasting a half a day schlepping down to some closed down luggage storage facility or see yourself in front of some 20 stairs with big suitcases around you waiting for a miracle.
Beware of Scams! Some online scammers asking you to prepay for luggage storage while sending you to some convinience store for luggage storage.. So remember never prepay for Luggage Storage and yes there are 1000's of convinience stores throuout nyc but only 1 real ground floor Luggage Storage and that is Schwartz Luggage Storage.
Hotel Luggage Storage Most of Manhattan's finer hotels have a luggage storage room. If your hotel does not store luggage, you might ask the concierge of a nearby one that does. You might also find that a generous tip can possibly help find you a solution if the hotel clerk hasn't got an answer. However, less expensive hotels might not be of any help at all, at which point you need to consider other options.
Cruise Ship On a similar note, if you just stepped off a cruise ship and have eight hours before your flight, what to do? If you are the persuasive sort and well-dressed, you likely could store your luggage at a four-star hotel simply by approaching the concierge. Again, a generous tip would be in order, in addition to any fee the hotel might charge.
Schwartz Luggage Storage: A Solution for places with No Luggage Storage A mention of places that currently do NOT store luggage: The Port Authority Bus Terminal; LaGuardia Airport; and Newark Airport. Advance airline check-in does not function here as it does in some European countries, whereby your luggage can be delivered to the airline 24 hours in advance. Thus, an early trip to the airport would be a waste of time anyhow. Some foreign carriers do make special arrangements for their first-class passengers; inquire of the airline.
Schwartz Luggage Storage at Penn Station Pennsylvania Station does store luggage, but the facility can be hard to find. Do ask a uniformed Amtrak employee for assistance at the station if you have difficulty finding it. Generally, you need to be able to present a train ticket to use this service, but not always. Costs are moderate. This option is most useful if you intend to travel via Amtrak, or if you will take NJ Transit/AirTrain to Newark Airport. However, there is Schwartz Luggage Storage just a few short blocks from the 8th ave exit.
Museums Due to heightened security concerns, museums are now more reluctant to store big items. Certainly if you arrive with three suitcases you will have an extremely difficult time convincing the museum staff to accept your luggage. But one medium-sized backpack or suitcase with wheels and carrying handle might be perfectly acceptable. Usually museums store luggage for free.
Restaurants You might also try the coat check facility of a well-known restaurant, although this could require some persuasion and a generous tip. While a decent-looking suitcase on wheels might be fine, more than that likely would be unacceptable. A generous tip is appropriate, especially if you have no intention of eating at the restaurant. Do if you intend to return at an off-hour such as 4 p.m. ensure the restaurant does not close in the mid-afternoon!
Plan Ahead In sum, with a bit of planning you can arrange to store your luggage should you find you have a day or so to spend in New York minus your possessions. A final note: Always lock your luggage before storing it! Even though United States air transportation policy no longer allows you to lock your checked luggage, things unfortunately do occasionally disappear in hotel facilities. Obviously under no circumstances should you leave any valuables your luggage (camera, passport, money).
