The rooms are small, but so well thought out and space is used so well that it was not an issue. the staff is friendly and helpful.and the amenities make it a very comfortable place to stay it. we did think the reception area...

I echo the sentiments of the many reviewers that have stated "best price for the location" as staying across from Rockefeller Center smack dab in the middle of midtown puts you in excellent proximity to everything. Even though it was a little bit touristy, I enjoyed having breakfast watching the skaters on Rockefeller Center as they were putting up the... More

We spent one night in this small quite hotel that is right near Rockefeller Center. The room was on a smaller side but very modern and clean. Check in/out was very quick. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area.

Intentionally tried 3 different hotels in NYC over the past month and the Jewel was my favourite. Yes the rooms are small but adequate. It has pleasant decor and a great little lounge room and business centre to meet other travellers and share experiences. My room was at the back so no view but very quiet. Really loved the fact...

A very clean, quiet hotel in the most perfect location across the street from Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall. The staff was friendly, the elevator was fast, and although the room was fairly small (like most NYC hotels) it was very functional (even with our two giant suitcases). We enjoyed the fast, free internet and the filtered (free)... More

New York is a great city. The less time spent in the hotel the better the trip. This hotel delivers exactly what is needed for a short stay. It is very clean, incredibly quiet and run by friendly efficient staff. The location next to Rockefeller Center is good for shopping, dining, and late night drinks across the street at the... More

A friend and I stayed here last month for about a week and it's just average. I booked a 1 bedroom through Kayak. If you're staying with someone else and are booking a 1 bedroom, please make sure to get the upgraded room with the built in desk/chair because otherwise you'll be staying in a closet sized room. The lobby... More

Second time I stay at this hotel, love the location and happy with clean adequate rooms and bathrooms. However, for the price, can't the management put BATHROOM FANS????? This is the second review I put on the subject, and I know other guests feel the same way. I guess better late than never.

Booked on priceline and I expected to be devalued as a customer. Not true! Was greeted by Iris and she took great care of me. Put me in a superior room and it was one of the best rooms I've ever had in New York! Had a fridge, coffee maker, stove top, and microwave. Location is amazing! I would definitely... More
