Great location. Right by Times Square. We were on the 10th floor and didn't hear noise. Very quiet. Front desk staff was nice especially Esprit. She gave my kids a goodie bag and She printed up directions and was very helpful. When you come in, there is a guy outside welcoming you in. I can't remember his name. Something with a W..Wilson??
Sign up for free with Kimpton rewards and you get a $10 bar credit. Free wine hour from 5-6 but we missed it every time. They should put filtered water in the lobby so we can fill up water bottles. They just had a pitcher of water so it's hard to fill up with a water bottle.
Check out the lobby bathrooms. Very neat! We had to pay for the breakfast buffet which wasn't good. Just some fruit, cereal, toast, muffins and danishes. Room decor is nice. Our room had small beds so next time I would get the king and not double beds. If you have pets, this is a pet friendly hotel too.
Right next door is an English pub we also ate at. TGI Fridays is across the street but is double the price. Save money and get food from all the food carts in the same block. The subway is a couple blocks away so buy the 7 day pass for $30. They didn't have anything for a couple days. Get the City pass too..don't do the hop on off bus with the subway so close by. We went to Empire State Building and Top of the rock which were a couple blocks away.
If you have a birthday tell the front desk and they will give you cupcakes. They brought it up to the room after we checked in. The other Kimpton had it in the room when we got there. It was my son's birthday but they thought it was mine and gave me a card . Instead of my son's name on it, it was my name. Wish they would have looked at the the survey they sent the night before which I wrote all the info on. I also called the week before too and they asked for his name. Still nice they did something though.
We didn't have a car so if you want to go to JFK it's about 40 min. away. Look around, we paid a taxi van $52 for a flat rate fee. It was better than taking all our luggage on the subway.
