“Great Location and Great Price”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

We made a family trip to New York City at Christmas time. It was myself, my wife and our two kids (12 and 9). As you can imagine, hotel rates in New York City at Christmas time can be very high. My wife found a great internet special at The Muse several months in advance and we paid less than half what the going rate was when we arrived. The person that checked us in was even surprised when he saw the rate. We were super pleased with the location which was right in the theatre district and very close to Times Square. We were able to walk to just about everything we wanted to do. The decor in the lobby was beautiful and it's a great "boutique" style hotel. The decor is minimal (like most boutique hotels), but fits the place well and the rooms were very comfortable. We had a fantastic trip and if we are able to make it back to NYC, we will definitely consider staying at The Muse again. We have recommended the hotel to a handful of friends traveling to New York and a couple have taken our suggestion and they have really liked the hotel as well.

Good location; reasonable rates for New York; stylish hotel. They had to reprogram the flat screen TV in my room to get the cable to work, an annoyance that took about half an hour. Also not all that clear on how to use the key card for the door. These are quibbles, however, unless the TV issue persists.

Hotel is over priced. Yes its in a good are if you want to be near times square but not worth the money.
The worst thing is the noisy air conditioner.....terrible!!! Rooms are clean but cheap, however, the bed was good. But really the noisy air conditioner ruined a good night sleep

This location, right off Times Square if smack dab in the middle of NYC, but on a slightly quieter sidestreet. Perfect access to theaters, restaurants, Rock Ctr, etc. I walked from Penn Station (13 or so blocks) in about 20 minutes.

Hotel staff greeted me immediately and got me to my room pronto. Room was lovely w great Etro toiletries. Great sheets, towels and mattress.

Love it when the wake-up call is a liver operator, on-time and greets me by name.

Only disappointment was the loud room air conditioner.

Coffee in lobby starting at 630am...

Greats stay, Muse...thanks.

I don't know what more to say after the title...its a fine hotel in Times Square. Rooms are plush but small unless you upgrade. This is a solid 3.5-4 ''forks'' and as long as you get a good rate, you're in business. You don't want to overpay for this place as its not in the highest tier of boutique hotels in NYC..but you can have confidence that its trusty. I have stayed here several times but only when the rates come down.

Hope this helps.

We've been staying in NYC for 40 plus years on business and pleasure and always looking for a small boutique hote in a good neighborhood at a reasonable cost. The Muse Hotel is just about as good as it gets! Location - wonderful just a half block to Times Square and the Theater District and the subway. We requested a quiet room and we had the 9th floor facing the back so it was very quiet.

Check in was prompt and our room (basic queen size bed) was lovely. Very well appointed with a flat screen TV, large bathroom, many amenties. By NYC starndards, the room was fairly large and immaculate. Our rate was the low end and a bargain for NYC.

Coffee was available in the morning in the lobby and wine at cocktail hour. The staff was always very accommodating.

Definitely a super value for NYC and we'll recommend and will be back!

Not only did the room we stay in have a spectacular view, but it was also very large, clean, and modern. Out of all the hotels I've EVER stayed in...(and there were a lot of them), I'd have to say that this is number 1 on my list. We also had great housekeeping service. Whenever we asked for extra towels, or a pillow, we received it promptly. I also admired the fact that the Muse Hotel was just around the corner from Times Square. It is a very convenient location, and beautiful from the outside and in!!! The ONLY complaint I would have about the hotel, would have been that the front desk agents were not as friendly as they could've been, but overall our positive experience there definitely out-weighs any negative experiences that we may have endured. We will definitely visit again!!!!!
