“Compact, convenient, clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

My husband and I recently spent 4 delightful nights at the Lex, while enjoying a vacation in NYC. Our experience was quite positive- the staff could not have been more helpful, the hotel was conveniently located and our room was sparkling clean. Although compact, the room was set efficiently, with built in furniture and wardrobe. The bed was quite comfortable and the linens were crisp and clean. My only concern was the way sound carried between the bathrooms (conversations could be heard quite clearly) and occasionally between the rooms themselves. This was not enough to mar a very positive experience. We would absolutely stay at the Lex again, and would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable hotel that is clean, comfortable and well staffed.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that is not on the Lexington Avenue side

I had a great experience at this hotel, the staff was warm and friendly at hello, willing to help with every single question. As soon as we got in the room they called us from the reception to make sure all was well with the room.

Location is KEY without exaggerating. Just a stone's throw from Madison Park, Empire State building, Gramercy Park and a ton of good restaurants.
There are a number of parking garages close by too where you can leave your car overnight at a fair price ($25-30)

The rooms are very clean-this building is actually brand new- and the overall feeling is that of a modern progressively decorated hotel.

I can definitely see myself going back there...

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony, definitely worth the upgrade especially if you are a smoker!

Great little boutique hotel that's nicely located for all sorts of things. Madison Square Park and the Flatiron building are a couple of blocks away, etc, etc. Great service, nice rooms - compact, so beware if you're expecting a grand suite!

No in-house catering apart from a little breakfast in the morning, but plenty of restaurants around and when you check in you'll get a list of recommended ones.

Fantastic staff, clean and great value.

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!
