This was my first time staying at a "boutique hotel" and I was a little unsure about paying a bit more than most of the already pricy hotels in NYC - however it was worth every penny. The room we had was a suite with two double beds, bathroom, living room, and kitchenette. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, dishes, glasses, silverware, and most improtant...a cork remover and glasses for the wine!
The hotel was offering a discount on a meal at the retaurant Noir and because we had a delay with check in Linda, front desk, spoke to the manager and was able to give us a little bit more of a discount. The restaurant is beautiful, the food was perfectly prepared, and the service was great. Thank you Linda!
The consierge, Peter Johnson, was a great help. Every morning we stopped to see him and get some insight. He recommended an Italian restaurant that he likes, Luna Piena on E 53rd St. I too highly recommend this restaurant, the food and service were great. Peter, thank you for all your help!
The hotel is adding their own Italian restaurant soon. There is also a sitting room in the lobby that has a huge round fish tank. The penthouse level of the hotel has an outdoor bar and seating area. I went up there one evening expecting to find a quiet corner to enjoy a drink and a book but instead found it to be lively, full of people and music, it was wonderful.
The Kimberly is located on E 50th St and was very convenient to everything. My friend and I used public transportation the whole time including to and from the airport. To and from LGA was a little bit of a trek with luggage so it may not be for everyone. But, if you want to pamper yourself without breaking the bank try the Kimberly Hotel.
