“Just like its name”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

The jewel is the perfect place to stay in NYC. Loved how close it is to everything. The staff was very polite and helpful. The rooms are clean and a good size for NYC . On our next visit hopefully the weather will be nicer to experience the terrace.

Stayed March 2014

If you have business in this part of Manhattan (especially Rockefeller Center) or want to be close to the more upscale shopping options on Fifth Avenue, or go to an event at Radio City Music Hall, then this hotel is very well located. Its very easy to miss, as it has a very small ground floor presence. The lobby is quite small, and the rooms are also small, but well furnished and very clean. There is a great and very relaxing lounge, coffee bar and small business center on the second level. The staff is definitely friendly and helpful. The hotel (at least the rooms that face north) is relatively quiet. There are a plethora of dining options immediately next to the entrance and across the street in Rockefeller Center. The Jewel definitely exceeded expectations.

Room Tip: Somewhat quieter if you don't face Rockefeller Center.

The Jewel was just perfect. The rooms are well laid out, hotel was quiet and well appointed. Complementary fresh-ground coffee and cappuccino in the living room was great. Very modern, clean and they thought of every convenience. We had breakfast next door which was good with a nice view. The central location was a short walk from the theater, Times Square and many terrific restaurants. Catching a cab was easy and sitting watching the ice skaters at Rockefeller Center was awesome. Free wifi was fast and convenient. Another awesome feature was late check-out - only $38 to stay until 3:00 p.m., a great option when one of us woke up not feeling well and it was pouring rain.

Came for a 2 day stay for my hubby's birthday and couldn't have asked for a better getaway. To begin the staff working at this hotel are amazing. Iris is phenomenal!!! She upgraded us to a room with a balcony without even asking. Asked if any special occasion was being celebrated, when I told her it was my husband's birthday she told me she would have a chocolate cake delivered to our room on them. They had it up there in 15min...it was delicious!
Free water in every floor with plastic bottles. Free wifi. Free maps of NY and breath taking views. Will definitely come back!!

I can’t say enough good about the staff. I was efficiently and pleasantly checked in. I was given a map for a parking garage they have cut a deal with (just around the block). Have your parking ticked validated to drop the rate from $56 to $35 per 24 hours. The room was small but had all that was needed. Super quiet. I left early am and bumped into the security staff walking around the floors. Nice to know that it was there. Checkout was fast and proficient. Should I visit again, I would stay here in a heartbeat!

Spent a week at this "Jewel" and could not have been more pleased. A frequent traveler with high expectations and this small hotel met them all. Location, location, location - Fifth Ave shopping, Broadway, Central Park - all within walking distance and, of course, Rockefeller Center (ice rink was still open when I arrived) with its many upscale shops, restaurants, 3 chocolatiers. I will return! All staff was friendly, helpful and quickly took care of whatever needs arose.

Truly a Jewel! The staff is awesome! Rooms are a bit on the smaller side but very well laid out. Just a few steps from Rockefeller Center and of course 5th Avenue shopping! Water stations on every floor! Free coffee on the second floor!
