I was instructed to book a room at The Kimberly by my upper management, and I was reluctant given the photos posted on their website. It looks a bit outdated to say the least, but this place still has charm. The rates are extraordinary considering the size room you get. The staff is friendly enough, and everything from the common areas to the room was clean as a whistle. This hotel caters to the business guest; they have an in-room shoe shine/buffer which I've never seen in any other hotel. What a novel idea.
And make sure you check out Upstairs, the rooftop lounge. It offers great views of the Chrysler Building and surrounding area.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely. Would I recommend it? Certainly, for anyone visiting on business.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Kimberly is a traditionally styled, boutique suite hotel located between 3rd & Lexington Avenues. With 30 rooms and 162 suites ranging from 266 to 935 sq ft., we offer personalized service from a warm and caring staff. Most of our suites have balconies, a rarity in NYC and many offer views of the city. Our mattresses are covered with feather beds and decked with Frette linens, which earn comments such as "I didn't want to get up" from our guests. A bonus here, is that in addition to our on-site fitness center, work-out enthusiasts can use any of the NY Heatlth and Racquet Club's 9 locations, including pools and work-out classes at no additional cost and can enjoy a cruise for three hours on their 75 ft yacht (in season) for a fee of $30 which includes a light buffet supper. ... more less
