3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

We spent a 3-day weekend in NYC, with the Kimberly as headquarters. Location can't be beat. We spent the money for a suite, which was nice to have, but lots of little items in the rooms were worn, not kept up as expected: shower handle fell off, heat didn't control well, sound insulation not great so noisy all night. still, decent price and fantastic location.

Spent 4 nights here while on a mini vacation from Connecticut. The staff was wonderful, very polite and helpful.
We booked a one bedroom suite, living room, small kitchen, which was sufficient, however the livingroom was bare and lacked furniture. We spoke with front desk personnel and were told the situation would be resolved with an additional club chair to be delivered. It never happened. We contacted the MOD who was ever so gracious, and after visiting our suit he resolved the issue by relocating us to an Executive One Bedroom Suite. The accommodation was clean, spacious, and very comfortable with luxury linens and wonderful bathroom amenities. The rooftop bar was a fun, beautiful view way to end a night in the City!!! We definitely would recommend The Kimberly for a great stay in a great neighborhood in NYC!!

Room Tip: Request mid-level suite, 17B, 50th St. view.

A wonderful experience that started when our room was upgraded to a suite that had every amenity and then some including bathrobes, slippers,an electric shoe polisher, a large clothes closet with lighting. a very comfortable bed that raised at the head and foot with a push of a button and vibrated! The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating: agreeing to a 2:00 p.m. check out. It is conveniently located with plenty of good restaurants within walking distance, including a great diner two or three doors down that is perfect for breakfast.

The Kimberley is deserving of the good reviews it gets. We stayed for three nights in a two room suite with small kitchenette. Arrived early and at 11am they found a room for us, superbly comfortable it was too! Quiet , for NY, and large, the kitchenette was perfect for preparing a light breakfast or evening snack. Very comfortable bed and excellent quality linen and bathroom amenities. Super location. Breakfast at the luncheonette next door was great. Wish they did not charge for wifi ....this was the only dHope we get the opportunity to return!

To be fair, this hotel is doing many things right: the rooms are huge on NYC standards, the kitchenettes are perfect for light meals, the housekeeping staff and bellman were excellent. The facilities, however, are in need of some updating. Lots a deferred maintenance and signs that "best days" are unfortunately in the past. Interiors are worn and dated, room amenities sub par. I found it hard to believe that the Kimberly qualified as a 4 or even 4.5 star hotel...I would say its more if a solid 3 to 3.5. Agent at check-in and concierge were both rude...no excuse for that, and it is surprising to me how hotel management underestimates the importance
of having key staff with pleasant demeanors in such positions.

Aloha! My husband and I came from Hawai'i to spend our honeymoon in NYC over Christmas. We stayed at The Kimberly and loved it immensely. Convenient to Times Square and all it has to offer. The staff was exceptional - front desk, concierge, and housekeeper. (We noted a number of times how we ended up having great conversations with the housekeeping staff. We felt welcomed and were made to feel that we were special guests of the hotel. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed. I couldn't have been more pleased. We will definitely return! Thank you, Kimberly!
