“5 Stars for Value and Nice Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Here's the skinny on this hotel:

Value = 5 stars great price for it's quality and location in NYC. This hotel was $350 when the W down the block during the same times was $700 per night

Staff = 5 stars. It's a new hotel, had been open a month when I stayed. The staff was great, did everything you needed and proactively checked in. Great stuff, they care

Location = easy. Midtown, walkable to lots of things and subway.

Rooms = 4 stars. Nice rooms. My only issue was that I was there when it was still cold (snowing in mid April). The heater is a wall unit, and while it worked just fine, the fan on the heater was really loud. I had noise canceling headsets that I could sleep with so it didn't really bother me that much, but if I didn't have those I could see that being a problem. I did tell the front desk on my departure and they said they would check the fan level.

Room Tip: Ask about the heating unit in the wall. The fan on mine was loud.

Recently stayed at the Lex for a few nights during my first trip to NYC -- the hotel was nice but the staff was AMAZING! They were extremely helpful with directions and local must-dos while I was in the city -- also just fun people to be around which made a huge difference. Thanks guys!

The Lex is a new property, so right off the bat you are getting clean fresh rooms and hallways - always a plus in NYC. And while the rooms are not at all large (it is NYC after all) they are well designed and very functional with a modern hip decor.

The location in NoMad turned out to be fantastic. Lots of great dining choices were nearby along with shopping and hip culture. We easily walked to Flatiron, Chelsea, SoHo, East Village and more. The subway was just a few blocks away, and the 6 line was a great route up and down the East side of town. We rarely needed to transfer.

Most of all, the staff were extremely friendly and knowledgable. It's nice being greeted by name and sincerely being asked how everything is going. They knew the area well and made some nice recommendations. It's the kind of service you simply won't get at The Marriott Marquis!

Two mild negatives - the climate system was a little loud and tended to vary in noise level even with the fan in the "on" position. Also - the shampoo was awful; it reminded me of gefilte fish jelly. However, those are minor distractions. I would easily stay at The Lex again!

I recently stayed at the Lex and greatly enjoyed it. The staff was incredibly attentive from check-in to checkout. There was even a handwritten note on the desk, along with a gift bag of delicious chocolates. My room was a great size for a single traveler and had all the amenities that I was looking for, namely free and fast wifi. I'd recommend the Lex to anyone who is looking for a great location, price, and a more personal hotel experience.

I stayed for 2 nights in April 2014. The staff was very courteous and offered excellent restaurant options in the area. Fortunately, the area has several great restaurants, all within walking distance. The neighborhood was great as well. Close to convenient stores, food, and the subway. The room was very clean and had everything I needed. It was quiet and blocked out the lights as well. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a business or personal trip to NYC. Great location too. Close to uptown, midtown, downtown.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. We booked at a very good rate, at a time when there were no reviews yet because the hotel was so new. When we checked in the hotel had been open for only four weeks.

Physically, the newness shows. Fixtures are all sparkling and the modern rooms are all fresh and well kept. For NYC, the rooms was fairly spacious and the bathroom was downright palatial. Decoration wise the rooms are a bit spartan but that's a style choice that fits with the modern decor. There weren't a lot of frills but what the hotel does, it does very well. Bed was comfortable and the neighborhood was quiet at night.

Surprisingly, given how new the hotel is, the staff was tops. They were all very cheerful and helpful, quick with a greeting and ready to help.

I would stay here again.

We stayed for seven nights in the Lex Boutique Hotel recently, on a trip from Ireland, and had a great experience. The staff were open, friendly and helpful. We had a great room, spacious, big bed, bathroom, TV, WiFi. The breakfast was casual, but very good, we skipped most mornings as we went out and had it in one of the many great places for breakfast close buy. It is a great location, whether one wants to go "up" or "down" town, loads of great places to eat just by the hotel. The manager Mathew was always there in the morning, and willing to help with anything, as were who whoever was on duty. I would solidly recommend it.
