The hotel was fab. In a fantastic location in Midtown Manhattan. We only stayed in a standard room (ie not a suite) but the beds were sooo comfortable and the room was plush. The porters and concierge were lovely, helpful and didn't ask for or expect a tip once, although we did tip right at the end of the holiday. The receptionists were polite but a bit sullen and not over-friendly which was the only downside. We even got a daily $10 voucher each for a meal in the ajoining restaurant, Ferro's where we ate a lovely and reasonable priced lunch. All-in-all a fantastic place to stay and I would definately stay there again!

We had a fabulous stay at The Kimberly for 8 nights in late August/early September. No complaints from us on anything. Our room was spacious, quiet (we requested an away-from-it-all room). The beds were comfortable and linens high quality. Big, well appointed bathroom. We don't require maid service everyday and put our little don't disturb sign out. However, on the days we did want maid service, the room was impeccable. The staff was courteous, efficient and prompt. The conciere was also very helpful on helping us get around NYC. Be sure to take the free sunset cruise on the yacht they have--it's 3.5 hours and goes around the East River and up the Hudson (great views of the skyline. For $20 extra, you can enjoy the appeitzer buffet on the cruise. We didn't take advantage of membership to the health club (with pool) that the Kimberly is associated with, but we did enjoy the $10 dollar discount off the $16 full buffet at Ferro's next door. Lastly, this hotel is centrally located in a safe eastside area on 50th and close to the subway. We'll be back.

My wife and I booked the Kimberly after an exhaustive review of upscale hotels in NYC that could accommodate our family of 5 (Me, my wife, our twin 5 year olds and our 4 year old). We are very picky about where we stay wherever we go. All in all the Kimberly was perfect and I would highly recommend it.

The suite we had was a good size (for Manhattan), very clean, with a balcony and well above the street noise. The small kitchenette was ideal for us as it had a fridge, microwave, and was well equipped with plates, utensils, and glasses. The location was perfect, just a couple of blocks from St.Patrick's/Rockefeller center and there were two subway stations close by. We found a great bagel place and several nice restaurants within a two block radius.

The staff were friendly and accommodating. We had to cut short our trip by one night due to an unforeseen circumstance and the hotel staff were very understanding.

I have booked the Kimberly again for a two night trip in December and am looking forward to visiting the Kimberly again.

We stayed here for 5 nights with a 2 year old. We had the one bedroom apartment and it worked really well. Heaps of space and great little kitchen. The location is brilliant, easy to get to everything. Made use of the computers in the lobby - cramped but free. Ate breakfast at the hotel and it was ok but didn't appreciate them charging for the 2 year old who sat on our lap and ate basically nothing. Also, I used hotel phone to phone a land line in Connecticut and the charges were exorbident. These were the only negatives. The positives were the location, room size, comfy bed, kitchenette. Really was a terrific place place to stay and would consider it again if we didn't live so far away (Australia)!

We stayed here for our honeymoon. We were given champagne and the minibar stock for free. Our room had a balcony with two parts to it. One part of the balcony was enclosed in, so that one can be protected if it rains. The concierge arranged a sunset harbor cruise around Manhattan. The cruise was complimentary for all of the guests. The hotel is located a block from the subway, and is an easy stroll to Rockefeller Center.

we chose this as it was written up in a guide book as having great family rooms, in great location and not prohibitively pricey...the guide book was absolutely right.

We had a one-bedroom suite (i think all rooms are 'suites') which had 2 double beds in the bed room, large sitting room, small but adequate bathroom and plenty of extras (extra sink, microwave, coffee perculator, 2 huge TVs, big fridge, etc etc). Hotel's having a bit of a refurb it seems of some of its room but there was little disruption. Had a light lunch in the restaurant one day and that was very good. Staff were generally very good and genuinely friendly (not just on the look out for tips).

Location on East 50th between Lexington and 3rd was excellent.

Negatives? Front desk was a bit sullen. Hotel only has two small lifts and so waiting for one takes a painfully long time, however they are in the process of adding a third so this should improve things.

Generally really very good and if we go to NYC again with the kids, we almost certainly would return.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone! My family brought me here for my 21st birthday and I had the time of my life! New York was one of the most exciting places I have ever been to and the hotel was magnificent! When we arrived they had upgraded us to a duplex suite free of charge! the rooms were beautiful and the beds were so comfortable you completely forget about the bustle of the city and you're asleep in no time! The staff was very friendly especially helping us park, especially in manhattan! Check out the kimberly the next time you're in manhattan im sure you wont be disappointed! and be sure to ask for Ralph the door greeter!
