“Nothing To Rave About”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Usually Kimpton hotels are reliably very good properties, this time it was a disappointment. The staff are friendly and courteous with easy check in. The room is small but not uncomfortably so and was pleasantly decorated. The bathroom was small and there was peeling paint around the window frame and sill. It needs redoing. There is no restaurant or room service. If you want to eat in you are given lists of neighborhood restaurants that deliver but with 2 exceptions there were no accompanying menus from which to order. Breakfast is available on the lobby level but the room is dreary; the food mainly pastries, bagels, some containers of fruit or yogurt and hard balled eggs: it reminded me of a stand in an airport or train station. It's not a pleasant start to the day. By choice I won't stay there again.

This hotel is far below other Kimptons I have stayed at. I was looking forward to staying here for a business trip, but was very disappointed. The staff was friendly and helpful, but from there it goes downhill. The room was very small - no space for an extra chair, very small tup/shower. There was considerable street noise such that it was difficult to sleep. The furniture exhibited significant wear. Based on this experience, I will think twice about staying at another Kimpton and read the reviews carefully before booking.

I'm easy to please when it comes to Kimpton hotels-- simply because, well, they are fantastic. This was my first stay at the 70 Park Avenue property, but my fourth Kimpton hotel overall. This one was just as great as all the others. Friendly staff who will greet you by name, chic decor and detailing, clean bathrooms and bedrooms, nice little touches (I never get tired of the orange and lemon water). The location for this one is great, too-- right near Grand Central, so very convenient to catch the subway (or even a taxi) to elsewhere in the city. I'd happily return.

This was my second stay at this property, and after another outstanding experience, I will definitely stay at the 70 Park Hotel on future visits to NYC!

This was a belated anniversary celebration for my husband and I, so we opted to stay in a queen suite. The room was GORGEOUS - decorated in a sophisticated, modern colors with huge windows and a fabulous seating alcove with a view of the Empire State Building. The bathroom was spacious with a jetted, whirlpool tub and the queen bed was incredibly comfortable.

What truly makes this hotel special, however, is the exceptional people who work there. When we arrived, there was a bottle of wine, box of mini cupcakes and a card signed by hotel management and staff members. I have never felt more welcome at a hotel!

This hotel is also in a great location - just a few blocks from Grand Central Station and there is a Starbucks just a block away. There are also some great restaurants in the neighborhood, which is quiet and much less hectic than other parts of the city. We have also stayed at The Muse, another Kimpton property near Times Square, but much prefer the quiet, relaxed atmosphere of the 70 Park Hotel. This hotel truly is an oasis in the city!

Room Tip: The rooms on the higher floors tend to have great views and are quieter.

The hotel is within walking distance of Grand Central Terminal. Not as central as some other hotels but that was good as New York traffic is noisy. Room was on the 4th floor. After the first night could sleep through the traffic, so no real problem. The hotel and room was really clean. Wardrobe, iron, ironing board, hairdryer all in the room. Bed was big and very comfortable. Lots of towels. Bath and shower. Breakfast was a selection of cereals, bagels, Danish pastries, salmon, boiled eggs, toast, yoghurts, tea and coffee - as much as you could eat. Liked that you didn't have to go out to eat first thing. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back.

I have a decided preference for Kimpton Hotels, and will usually opt for one of their properties, if available.

I stay at this hotel fairly often. It's very well located, and well appointed. The staff is friendly, and anticipates needs. It's not a rote recitation from the manual, but rather a very warm personal touch. Check in is quick. The room, which was an upgrade, was commodious, and the bed and linen comfy. Furniture was stylish and comfortable.

But there was trouble in paradise. The heat in my room didn't work, and the shower lacked water pressure. A rare event, but not a pleasant surprise, especially after a long day at work. This was a first in the many nights I've stayed at Kimpton hotels. Usually there aren't any problems.

The staff went way beyond the minimum they could get away with in order to make amends.

I judge more on what a company will do when things go wrong, than just on what happens when all is good.

Kimpton hotels gets it right, on both counts. I'm back for two more nights next week.

In the past, all I looked for in an NYC hotel was a comfortable bed an a nearby subway station. My boyfriend and I stayed at 70 Park Ave. for a weekend and truly loved the experience. The customer service was great from the start, and the room was quite spacious. Perks include: complimentary coffee in the morning, the New York Times left at your door daily, nightly wine reception and it's just a short walk from Grand Central station. I'd highly recommend staying here, I had no complaints.
