“Great hotel and quiet too!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

This is a fantastic boutique hotel, steps away from times square and nearly everything in Manhattan. The service was fantastic, the concierges were helpful, bellman were pleasant and friendly and the room was clean and spacious for the city. Even the cleaning staff was smiling and happy to see you, which I've never seen before.
The hotel was surprisingly quiet, very little city noise could be heard. We were at the front of the hotel facing 46th.
Thanks for being a part of a fantastic weekend!

The muse has a great location, few steps from Times Square, in the heart of theater district. The hotel is very chic, nice rooms, clean environment. The concierge and the reception desk staff are super accommodating. Free coffee and free newspaper in the lobby. David the bellman was very helpful and friendly. Thanks Dave. A good experience if you like Small boutique hotels. Many nice cafes around for a good breakfast.

The Muse Hotel is a great find in Manhattan. The location can't be beat--just off Times Square, yet it's actually quite quiet! We walked to Central Park, Rockefeller Center and through the theater district, and there are quite a few subway lines within a block or two. The hotel common areas are comfortable, and staff are friendly and helpful. We rented two rooms, and one had a balcony. You don't find many hotels with balconies in Manhattan! Ours had two lounge chairs and a table and three chairs. It was fantastic to sit outside on our patio with a glass of wine. The room decor was quirky but tasteful, with very comfortable beds. Be sure to join the Kimpton In Touch program; we were provided a delicious platter of cookies and certificates for a mini bar credit--a very nice welcoming touch!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

There is just no words to tell you how great the service by front desk, bell staff and best of all the doormen ((David in particular).are! very friendly and accommodating from check in to check out. This was our second trip to this hotel, and the door man remember me from 2 years earlier. Our room was lovely but small the first time there in June 2010, but this time in June 2012, we had a gorgeous and spacious room. The nightly complimentary wine hour is such a beautiful idea, as everyone has a chance to meet and mingle and we be made new friends each time because of these opportunities and have learned a lot of tips about NY from thes other visitors such as restaurants to sights that should be hit and or some to be missed. This trip however, the only "not" positive experience was in the restaurant in the morning for the complimentary breakfast. No direction from staff on process, ie: seat ourselves? Food selection was minimal and staff were very unattentive and uninterested to the point of being a bit rude. The hotel decor is so fabulous. Every inch is modern, chic and comfortable. Overall - you can be assured I will continue to go back. I heart NY and if you do too and want to be close to or in Times Square - I would highly recommend this property"

The hotel was welcoming and extremely clean. Our room was fresh, clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. I had a great night sleep on a wonderful bed. The room was spacious for a New York Hotel. I would definitly go back there again.

Room Tip: Corner room has many windows.

On my first non business trip to New York, I decided to play tourist. I sent a list of my thoughts on what to see, do, and where to eat, etc. to the concierge at the hotel. The next day Sarah called and emailed me to discuss my plans. She made great recommendations for restaurants, sights, and everything you could think of. The entire trip went great except when I lost my show tickets and couldn't get into the theatre. Needless to say that was when the concierge at the Muse contacted the box office and got me into the play on time and in my seats (which they had secured for me).

I've travelled throughout the world and do depend on the help of the hotel staff in making my arrangements. This was by far the best experience I have had and Sarah and her team are to be congratulated. I would recommend this hotel for it's location, service and attention to detail from the management down to the bellman, housekeeping and room service staff. I will definitely be staying here again!
