The room was very clean and very quiet-king bed was terrific. Room is small but perfect if you need a friendly staffed spot after exploring the city. A few long blocks away from center of midtown but felt safe walking. Will also store luggage if arriving early.

I loved my stay at the Gem hotel and plan to make it my go to for future NY trips. The welcoming staff (Jasmine & Ashley) were warm, personal, and so accommodating. My room was clean and fresh with all the amenities I needed for my 3 night stay. Proximity is great to all NYC "must see" attractions & walking... More

My room was fine except that the sheets were very thin and limp. As sheets and towels are what touch my body, they are essential ingredients to my stay at any hotel. I always judge the quality of the hotel by the quality of their sheets. Sheets need to be thick and, if possible, crisp. Every thing else was very... More

My daughter and I visited New York for the first time Labor Day Weekend. This was a birthday gift for her 21st birthday. We reviewed the Gem on Trip Advisor and made the decision to stay there based on the reviews and the location to the attractions we wished to see while in New York. We were not disappointed! We...

Myself and three others were travelling to New York for 4 days/3 nights and discovered this hotel online, it's location is roughly 15 minutes from time square and was barely a 5 minute walk from where we got picked up/dropped off from our bus, it's also 5 minute walk from the nearest metro stations on 34th street which was ideal....

My wife and I recently stayed here for the US Open. Reading the recent reviews we expected a friendly front desk staff, small but clean room with free Wifi, and a safe location that would allow us to navigate NYC via walking and Subway in the morning and evening - and that's exactly what we got. We would leave the... More

We had a nice time here. A good small hotel, clean and functional. The room was small but okay. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. All attractions were easily accessable by walking. An ideal place for visiting NYC.

Location good for business and Javits center Would like some type of food service and ice more accessible And this survey is much too long and to many words required Leave this section for critic and not for guests

I would recommend this hotel but for family with kids would b a tight fit, but would be okay, hopefully it would just be for sleeping, then it would be perfect. Need comfortable shoes as a bit of a walk from Time Square, at least 9 blocks.
