“Great location - small room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2011

The rooms were very nice but very small. Complimentary coffee in the lobby each morning and wine at happy hour...however the lobby gets very very crowded during happy hour and you may not find a place to sit. Staff was friendly.

Room Tip: If you want to sit down at complimentary happy hour in the lobby, get there early to get

First of all, I love the Kimpton brand of hotels. I have stayed in Kimptons in Portland, Seattle, San Diego, and Arizona. NYC was no exception. The location is fabulous. A block from Times Square on the "Little Brazil" street which is smack dab in the theatre area, and sooo many nice restaurants and pubs around. I wish my stay would have been longer. As all Kimptons do, they host a complimentary wine happy hour in the lobby lounge each evening at 5. Love this. The decor is contemporary yet homey. My husband and I traveled with our two boys, 6 and 1, and my mom in tow. For NYC standards, are room was nice and roomy (we stayed in the double double) even with a crib brought in. They also brought in 2 child sized robes for the boys. I will DEFINITELY be coming back to the Muse on my next return to the city!

The Muse Hotel was the base of operations for a long weekend visit in early November with my tween-aged daughter. The room was safe, quiet, clean, and larger than expected for a mid-town Manhattan hotel! We loved the room décor and amenities provided. Staff were helpful and gracious. The hotel is very conveniently located, but do note that it’s hard to get a taxi to pick up or drop off in front of the hotel because of the Times Square traffic patterns. The Muse is in the middle of the block and it’s not a big hardship to walk to or from the avenues on either end. Klimpton is my new favorite hotel group!

I stayed at The Muse for the first time while visiting New York for my Birthday. The staff went above and beyond to make my stay and celebration memorable. The room was clean and very chic!
They have a wine happy hour every night that is very intimate in the lounge. Great bar...I highly recommend the mediterranean flatbread and any cocktail Avelin shakes up for you.
When I was checking out I felt like I was leaving friends.
Treat yourself to an amazing home away from home at The Muse.
Merci Beaucoup to The Muse Staff...It was a birthday to remember and you made it very special!!!!

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly for the best deals.

We stayed at the Muse hotel the Sunday after Thanksgiving for 4 nights, from the moment we arrived we loved it, lovely room on high floor, the complimentary coffee in a morning, hot chocolate in the afternoon and wine hour at teatime were really nice touches. We received a card and sparkling wine/chocolate covered strawberries from guest relations as we were celebrating our Anniversary while we were there, really thoughtful and a nice surprise which we enjoyed - thank you. There was a complimentary Christmas gift wrapping service in the reception area in the evening. All the staff were helpful and friendly, especially David the doorman who organised our taxi back to the airport for our journey home. We really enjoyed our time at the Muse and would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: High floor, rear room 1803, looks out on to the Paramont Building/Hard Rock Cafe etc.

I went to NYC with a couple of friends and we had the chance to stay in this hotel.

Advantages :

1- Just in the middle the Time Square !! PERFECT location
2- EASY access to everything restaurants , cafes and bars, shops...etc
3- CLEAN and quiet rooms , nicely decorated. comfy bed.
4- Staff were nice.

Disadvantage :

Only one thing was not good about this hotel that it was really expensive.
