“Great bi-level suites for families”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

It's really hard to find a large enough space, with two bathrooms at a decent hotel in NYC. This is " the" place-and it is incredibly priced ( please anyone who thinks their suite price is high please compare to two bed/two bath room at any 4 star hotel in NYC ). They have several bi level suites, which offer privacy and two bathrooms ( only upstairs one is full bath). My daughter thinks the winding staircase ( not good for toddlers) leading up is amazing and the very hip decor is perfect for a NYC visit. They even supply you with a fully loaded iPod and Dock to listen to music. Great service, one of NYC best bistro is on main level adjacent to hotel, tons of space ( one of the largest suites I've had in NYC ) and it's right off Time Square. A gem, almost hated to disclose the secret of the suite in fear of it being sold out next time we go.

Stayed May 2013

We stayed here for four nights to celebrate my birthday. We booked a king size bed and received a room with that, plus a day bed. We really did not use the day bed for anything more than piling our stuff on it, so it wasnt a useful feature for us. If you enjoy a lobby as a place to hang out, this hotel has no lobby. We were a bit worried when we checked in, as you walk in to a tiny vestibule area with a tiny "front desk". The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, providing recommendations and directions. Our room was on the eighth floor, facing 44th street. As with everything in New York, right across the street are other building with full views of whatever is going on inside. Our room had rudimentary shutters, not drapes, to block out light, provide privacy and probably to protect against the cold in winter. The windows are old single pane glass, and even though the days were warmer for October, we could feel the chill due to the old windows. The room was a bit tired re decor, and wallpaper needs replacing, but arent they all? There are no bureaus, just bedside tabes with drawers, which is where we stored extra clothes. Flat screen TV mounted on the wall. Lots of lights, and the bathroom, though small had a huge shower, with awesome water pressure. The bed. Sigh. Why hotels do not realize that beds are THE priority is beyond me. Ours was an older mattress with a down pillow topper. No elastic bands to keep it in place, so it slid way down during the night. My husband spent the whole weekend hauling it back in place in the middle of the night. So, sleep was just OK due to quality of bed. Even though we were directly across from the elevator, the hotel only has 44 rooms, so the elevator noise wasnt constant. The main reason I would recommend this hotel is LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Just 5 minutes from Times Square, 5th Avenue and all that Manhattan has to offer. A twenty minute walk to Central Park. There is a diner down the block called The Red Flame, a strange name for a basic diner, but the food is amazing! Big servings, quality ingredients and friendly staff. We ate breakfast there every day, but it is super busy so be prepared to wait. So, I would recommend this hotel simply due to location. While there were lots of other hotels on the block, I am sure they were more expensive, with bigger lobbies, etc., but for the amount of time you spend in your room, save some money and stay here. Oh, and the chocolate chip cookies provided each night for turn down service are wonderful and a lovely touch.

I joined family in NYC on a busy weekend; hotel prices were higher than usual and I opted for something on the lower end of the price scale. City Club proved a good value. Nothing pretentious about it; the lobby is so small it barely exists, two pleasant people staff the miniature front desk. I chose a Petite room, which lives up to its name - very small, but still comfortable. The hotel restaurant had been closed, and was just reopening, so only a continental breakfast was available. Moreover, coffee was only available as part of the continental breakfast, and since coffee was all I wanted, I had to leave the hotel to truly awaken in the morning. I trust that has been remedied by now. I had some trouble with TMobile coverage in the room, but that is certainly not the hotel's fault. All in all I was quite satisfied.

This hotel is perfectly situated in NYC. The hotel is very well appointed and the evening cookies are a bonus! I appreciated the attention to detail and crae provided by their staff! Wish the restaurant was open, but they made up by bringing my favorite madeleine cookies up when I checked in:) Will definitely come back!

I have stayed here many times for work trips, and it's always my favorite place to stay. The location is fantastic. It has easy access to anywhere in Manhattan, close to the hustle and bustle, but far enough away to not be bothered by it. The hotel has a very cozy feel, quiet and comfortable. The rooms are decorated with beautiful dark wood and warm, wall sconces. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are almost spa-like.

The staff has always been very friendly, and this time was no exception. The hotel doesn't have tons of amenities, but it's charm, location and comfort more than make up for it.

Make this your hotel if you are planning a trip to NYC.

Very nice hotel - great location, good rooms (much larger than at some other fancier Hotels in Paris I stayed at). Staff is fantastic - accommodating, friendly, helpful... I would strongly recommend it everyone!
