“My New Favorite”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

I love Kimpton Hotels. They are consistently great. This hotel is wonderful and the location is perfect for Broadway. You can walk to and from all the theaters and restaurants. Front desk is great and the coffee and wine offerings are typical Kimpton. I also like the size of the hotel. Not too big. The bar/restaurant is very convenient as well.

Room Tip: The floors higher than 15 are much smaller and quieter. The suites are nice with a comfortable sitti...

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend and loved it. Room was huge by NYC standards, and everything was very clean and updated. Loved the coffee in the morning, hot cocoa in the afternoon, and wine/spiked hot cider in the evening! Staff was great when I had to extend a day due to weather delays getting home. Location is convenient to pretty much everything in the city...highly recommend it!

We stayed at the Muse during Super Bowl weekend and we clearly were in the center of things. A great location, but close to all the action. I was surprised how quiet it was. The rooms were beautifully decorated. Not huge rooms but big enough to be very comfortable. The staff is great..always smiling and ready to help. We totally enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend The Muse to anyone wanting a boutique hotel experience in New York city.

Dear AAflyerSeattle,

Super Bowl was such a awesome time for both New York and New Jersey. We also loved having Super Bowl Boulevard right outside our doors as well.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to having you stay with us again.

Stayed here for two nights with a group of friends: Fabulous hotel, modern without being to pretentious. The lobby makes a great first impression and our room was excellent! The check in staff were very accommodating as we arrived early and only 2 of our 3 rooms were available, we left our bags and went to lunch nearby, when we came back they had give our friends in the 3rd room a voucher for $40 to spend in the hotel even though it was our fault we got there early :) The hotel is very central just steps from Times Square so you can't complain if there is noise, it is a busy/noisy city after all.
The hotel bar was sophisticated and dark and calming, just what we needed after being out in the Big Apple all day. If you stay you MUST visit the bathrooms just behind the reception desk they are all individually designed/decorated and well worth a visit! I would definitely recommend this hotel but maybe not with young children its a bit to sophisticated for a family trip! We were 2 adults in 3 rooms celebrating 40th & 50th birthdays the rates were very reasonable

Room Tip: We booked through Expedia and got a great rate. You can hear the NYC traffic all over but even our...

My family had the pleasure of staying at The Muse this past weekend while on our short trip to New York. We chose the hotel for its wonderful location and its great reviews! I wanted to share with you that the reviews are spot on! This small boutique hotel has a warm and cozy lobby which offers a welcoming coffee station in the morning and a great wine station (complimentary) each afternoon. It also has a delightful restaurant right off the lobby. The staff are all very gracious and do whatever it takes to make sure your stay is perfect. The rooms have great linens, awesome bathrobes and toiletries. Our room was quiet and spotless! I suffer from allergies so I requested a pet free hall to make sure I would be ok. They sent me an email in advance of my arrival confirming that my request would be accommodated. And the rates were very reasonable!
It is a green hotel and does allow pets, yet it is perfect for those with or without pets. (I did not see anyone there with a pet.) In a city that has hundreds of hotels that are often better on the website than in person, the Muse is an exception! We were minutes from Saks and just a block from Times Square on a quiet side street. We are already planning our next visit to the city and you can bet we will be booking our room at The Muse!

Room Tip: 12 floor was so quiet and pet free!

Decided to stay overnight in NYC,as part of my husband's birthday celebration. My compliments to the Sat, evening front desk staff. As a pet friendly hotel, they are outstanding. Came back after dinner to find my baby "hanging out" with the staff. Thank you, for keeping her company until we got back! I would have given the hotel 5 stars...except the tiny room was boiling...there is no way to adjust the heat in your room. You can also hear the toilets flushing in surrounding rooms. All that being said..we'll be back!

We do apologize about the heat in the room. Please let us know if this ever occurs again and we will be sure to have our engineer work their magic to get this fixed.
