“review for the jazz”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013 via mobile

kitano has a small jazz club on its main floor (moved from the 2nd floor); very well managed and served. the jazz is always interesting; the sound system great. the atmosphere is close and personal. the service is impeccable. my only complaint is that the manager is a little too uptight about talking while the musicians are playing. we don't like chatter while musicians play - but a word to each other now and then shouldn't be harped on. easy up a bit. your place is great

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

great service, friendly staff, spotless and beautiful room, oasis - quiet in the heart of the City. Early check-in was allowed since they had an available room. Park Ave view was awesome. Even with low floor, could not hear a taxi beep or the wind howl - and the wind was howling outside. Room service offered some (quick) delicious sushi and pasta. Location, for us, perfect. Thanks Kitano.

My husband and I stayed at the Kitano this past weekend and we were both surprised at how lovely this hotel is. The staff is super friendly, which is uncommon in NYC. We were upgraded to a king suite, nice size room and very comfortable and very clean! And the hotel was quiet.

Also the location of this hotel is perfect! You can walk to just about everything without hailing a cab, which saves money. We visited the Empire State Building, Grand Central, Macys on 34th and some art galleries.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor

Great hotel. Midtown east on Park Ave. Fantastic neighborhood. Nice walk to all the broadway theaters and mid-town restuarants. Room was huge for NYC with a lovely king size bed. GREAT bathroom - really. Fantastic views and big windows - ask for a high floor. Lovely staff, very sweet.
This is a japanese owned hotel with some great luxurious details focused on a wealthy japanese clientele. The Sunday jazz brunch doesn't disappoint. We will always look for a room here again.

Hidden hotel that the Asian community knows well but the outside world doesn't. Beautiful little hotel on Park Ave so you know the location will command a certain aura. Very nice rooms and a good size. Found this on www.quikbook.com because this hotel won't show up on the big travel booking sites

Visited the Kitano for a 4 night stay recently with my husband and daughter. We were a little concerned before arriving due to reviews regarding smoking rooms, but we were reassured by the manager that this wouldn't be a problem. It certainly wasn't ! We were met by friendly and efficient front desk staff, welcomed us with a complimentary upgrade to a corner room with a fantastic view of the Empire State building. We were over whelmed by the room and the views, not to mention the hotel offered complimentary fruit to celebrate my husbands birthday. Comfortable bed and good bathroom facilities. An excellent all round service- with not a hint of smoke on the tenth floor. Thank you !

Room Tip: Corner room on the tenth floor- outstanding views.

Stayed one night in the Kitano. Found the staff to be friendly and efficient. The room was clean and large (junior suite) with a bathroom with bath and shower and a state of the art toilet.,The room was quiet at night-so no problem sleeping. There is green tea and coffee making facility in the room, so you may need to bring your own tea bags if you prefer regular tea..Found a cafe nearby called Moonstruck ,which served a lovely breakfast. The hotel is on 38th so an easy walk to Macy's . Noticed they have a free chauffeur. service to Wall St in the morning, which is handy if you are over for business . There is a 9.99 charge for wifi in the room, but it is free in lobby.
