Reviewed 13 December 2006

This hotel is Great! It is in a brilliant location very close to three subway lines which is helpful for when you want to visit the attractions. All of the staff were friendly and helpful especially Raulph the doorman who gave us lots of resteraunt recommendations. Thee rooms were clean and comfortable and the addedextras e.g. robes, free internet access etc were great.

The rooms were large by NYC standards and you have never felt beds like the ones at the Kimberley - Think goose/duck down and lots of it!! fabulous!

If you have the capacity to afford the Kimberley the location (10mins walk from Rockerfeller and central park) and the great hotel atmosphere especially at Christmas are well worth it. Pictures to follow!

We just returned from our holiday weekend in New York. Our stay at the Kimberly Hotel was fantastic. The location fit our needs well. It is located right around the corner from the Waldorf. We walked to Rockafeller Center, St. Patrick's, the American Girl Place (we have two young girls... it was a must), the famed store-front windows and Broadway/Times Square. It was under $10 for a cab ride to Macy's.

Our one-bedroom suite on the 28th floor was perfect (ask for a high floor). The room was very clean and the linens were remarkable! The bed was extremely comfortable and was just perfect after long days walking around Manhattan. The view from our balcony was incredible.

We took in the Breakfast Buffet at the hotel restaurant on Sunday morning. The made-to-order omelets were great with several selections of fruit, meat and more.

The Bellman, Concierge, Valet, and Front Desk people were all polite and very helpful... without exception. They treated us very, very well.

The is the perfect place to stay when visiting Manhattan with the family!

We stayed at the Kimberly on the weekend of the NYC Marathon. The location is very convenient- the corner of Lexington and E.50th, one block from a subway stop. The room was immaculate and the beds were wonderfully comfortable. The staff was friendly and anxious to please. I will definitely stay at Kimberly on future trips to NY.

Per the recommendation of one of my colleagues, I stayed here on a recent business trip. By NYC standards, the room and bathroom were large. Both were clean but a little worn around the edges--small chips on the furniture, some staining on the grouting in the tub, etc. However, everything I needed was there: two very comfortable and luxuriously dressed beds, iron/ironing board, hairdryer, bathrobes, small fridge, good sized closet and, down in the lobby, staff members that were very polite and eager to please. Staff quickly got me a cab when I needed it, but the Lexington/51st Street subway stop is literally just around the corner. I paid $255 a night, and although that's not cheap by any means, it is a very competitive price for NYC right now. Given its convenient midtown lcoation--Rockefeller Center is a couple of blocks away--the Kimberly was perfect for my trip.

I booked this trip 6 months ago and got a good price of $255/nite when most comparable places were over $300 at the time I booked. I think it's worth the money I paid, but nothing more. Front desk staff was nice but not terribly knowledgable nor seasoned. We checked in late (11pm) and were given a room with 2 double beds instead of the queen/king we'd requested. (It was our anniversary). They said they never "guaranteed" those requests, but said they'd check in the morning. Sure enough, they moved us the next day (had to repack!!) to a room in the front of the building w/ a king bed. Double paned windows reduced the street noise just fine (we're used to a little urban noise). Size was decent for a NYC hotel room; bed and linens were really nice, and there were 2 dressers and a small closet. Bathroom was okay, but NO counterspace or any place to put toiletries. (The first room we had actually had a lot of counterspace AND a separate dressing room with a counter.) Overall, the place needs sprucing up - chipped surfaces, dusty fixtures (including the coffeemaker!), showing its age. There are 3 other hotels in the same block which, at times, have had competitve prices. They all looked nicer. Restaurant next to the hotel looked JUST okay (I"m a food snob); the bar was fun, with impromptu opera and jazz singers taking the mike. The best bagels in the world around the corner on Third Ave. Great location in Midtown East, easy to get up- or downtown by walking. Subway stops close to get anywhere. Not a bad experience for the price and location.
