“Good Enough For Norma Jeane”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Marilyn Monroe lived here with Joe DiMaggio at some point...just one little piece of trivia and charm. I really enjoyed this hotel. The rooms aren't huge, but nothing in NYC is. They were reasonable and I really loved the jazzy decor. As other reviews have mentioned, asking for a room on a higher floor is very helpful to reduce street noise. We were on the 25th floor. There's still noise, but it's manageable. The room had an auto-flush toilet - something I have not seen in a hotel and found quite surprising at times, if not annoying, but eventually we threw a towel over the back to make it stop flushing at unnecessary times. There was no room service when I was there, but I think they were in the process of changing that and they said the 2 restaurants on site would deliver "to go" style. Both restaurants on the property were very good - Chinese place called S. Dynasty and a Diner called Raffles. I would highly recommend both of them. Also there's a Starbucks in the lobby; not very NYC, but it's caffeinated and convenient. No coffee makers or refrigerators provided in the rooms, but I understand those could be provided upon request. The lobby bar was lovely and all the art and furniture in the lobby and throughout the property was really enjoyable the whole time we were there. We stayed for a week. We had a few small problems with housekeeping bringing what we asked for (nothing big) and the front desk was VERY receptive to my feedback.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper floor

Stayed for 5 nights with my wife. Upgraded on check in which was a nice surprise. Hotel room was a nice size but the bathroom did need an upgrade. All staff very friendly and accommodating. What made it for us was the location. Very central and most attractions in walking distance, well for us anyway. I would defiantly return to this hotel on our next visit.

This property gets a variety of reviews; my experience was very good as the room I had was fantastic. It was well appointed, had great views, spacious, and was very comfortable. The lobby had a sense of a modern touch while keeping the history of the building. The restaurant connected to the hotel (but not a part of the hotel) is awful ... walk a little bit to find something else (it was just too cold when I was there to wander too far!).

First visit to NYC, hotel is good enough , modern and clean, however as expected rooms very small and view wasnt particularly pretty. Wifi in room was at a cost, free in lobby. Very good location, only 15 min walk from times sq/broadway. Overall for the cost (we paid approx £120 a night for room only) it was good enough considering the location and i would recommend it.

Great location and very reasonably priced. Nice lobby. The rooms are typical NYC rooms, quite small, but serviceable. Brand new large flat screen TV's. The front desk help was friendly and the hotel very clean. I would go back.

NYC is expensive no matter what. This hotel was good value for the money. The building is an old style brick building, which has a unique charm. The rooms are small but the interior is modern.The staff is friendly, helpful and provides a great service. Location is fantastic. Very walkable to all major points in the city. Also being on Lexington I discovered a few new shops I hadn't known about.

I recently stayed here for 4 days/nights with a number of my relatives who all traveled to NYC for a family event. My room, including the bathroom, was quite nice, and larger than I expected, and the beds were very comfortable. As a gold member, high speed WiFi service was complimentary. While the building is old (it was built in 1929), it's obvious that they have made quite an effort to upgrade the interior. There's a gym on the third floor, which I used every day, and a Starbucks in the lobby, which was quite convenient. There's a separate reception desk for platinum/gold members, and the staff at that desk went out of the way to provide excellent service during our stay. There are many shops and restaurants in walking distance, and a subway station just three blocks away. I would definitely recommend the hotel to others, and would stay there again myself.
