“Inn at Irving Place”
Reviewed 29 April 2002

If you are considering staying at 'The Inn at Irving Place' you might want to read this. I was robbed of $2000 cash from one of their supposedly upscale rooms in December of 2001. After filing the police reports I was given half off my room fee for the night (I still had to pay over 180 dollars for the night). The hotels response was, in writing from an attorney, "our clients deny the allegations". Also of interest is the fact that the manager is stationed directly downstairs from the room where the theft occured leaving virtually no access to the room except for hotel employees. After I compained to the Better Business Bureau, the hotel's response to the BBB was "a police report was filed and this accusation came up to be false". This is absolutly false!

We were really looking forward to staying at the Inn at Irving place as we had been planning the trip for a long time and are a fan of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World chain.

However, I'm very sad to say that we were disappointed with the hotel.

The hotel has some good points - it's in a superb location; the staff are very friendly and helpful and the decoration & furnishing are of very good quality.

However, the its bad points are - it's very expensive for what it is and the cheapest room (which we stayed in) is small. But perhaps the biggest problem with the hotel is that the associated businesses - the bar (Cibar) is very popular and the noise of its music booms throughout the hotel. The other thing that is very popular is the Tea Salon. During our visit they had 3 different showers on one day and this puts the public area of the hotel out of bounds.

Cibar is also very much out of keeping with the character of the hotel - garage music and antiques don't make good bedfellows!

In summary I believe that the owners of the Inn at Irving Place need to decide what their core business is - at the moment it seems that they are prepared to sacrifice the tranquility of their accomodation for the loud noise and money of Cibar.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Originally built in 1834, three single family brownstones sat at the corner of 17th and Irving Place. Over the years, the corner brownstone was torn down and a small apartment building was built in its place. The two remaining brownstones have stood the test of time, and they now create The Inn. While once combined as a single family home, the brownstones also housed everything from apartments, The Ingersol Mens Club, a Speak Easy, and a Beauty Parlor and Day Spa. After completion of a three year renovation, The Inn at Irving Place opened its door in December of 1994. ... more   less
