Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and found the location to be perfect. There are a number of places to eat, as well as a pharmacy, within walking distance. The room had everything we needed and we appreciated the modern decor. The front desk staff were all nice and professional, and went above-and-beyond to ensure guests were happy, could... More

Had a great time here, the free lattes etc were most welcome, as was the free chilled water and bottles that we took around with us. The location was perfect for us, right in the center of everything, and felt a bit more up market than some of the other areas we saw. The room a was a little noisy... More

We made an impromptu trip to New York and wanted a place to stay midtown, as we had theatre tickets and planned on spending the weekend playing tourist. We wanted someplace centrally-located, but not outrageously expensive (as New York hotels tend to be). An internet search found The Jewel. And what a jewel it is! Located on 51st Street between...

I booked this hotel through priceline as I was heading to NYC on a whim and needed a hotel for two nights. I booked everything the night before I left on a Friday and there was not much available for less than 300 a night in a central location. When I refreshed my search and this hotel came up and...

I stayed prior to October 2013. Great location, helpful staff, nice hotel overall. The room had a kitchenette which we liked. However, if you travel with a smoker, you will have a hard time. The rooms which are designated as smoking rooms are few and are not nice. One of them was overlooking an area where all the air-conditioning system... More

From the moment when we first walked into the hotel after a long, tiring delayed flight to New York, we knew we had made the right choice with the Jewel. We were greeted by Mika at the front desk that evening, and then the next morning by Iris, who worked together to make sure that we were given a choice... More

Very well located for 5th Avenue, Central Park, Times Sq, Bloomingdales, Tiffany’s, Abercrombie & Fitch etc and everything really is very nearby! We chose a slightly larger room but although the room was bigger the actual bed was still small by NYC/USA standards! That said, the room was well appointed (TV, fridge, microwave, desk & chair etc) and very comfortable.... More

The Jewel is a small boutique hotel between 5th and 6th Avenues, mid-town. It's convenient to Times Square, Fifth Ave. shopping, and central park, as well as various subway lines and taxi stands. The rooms are small but use their space so efficiently, they seem spacious. Beautifully appointed bathrooms; comfortable surroundings; pleasant and helpful staff; perfect location make this a...

We enjoyed our trip to NY. The Jewel is in a great location for seeing all the sites. Our room was average but very clean. We found the front desk people were not as helpful as they could have been which surprised us after reading the other reviews.

Absolutely loved this hotel, we were staying in Vegas prior to our stay and were finding it hard to choose a NY hotel at good value and in a good location. This hotel was walking distance to everything - really great location. The room we booked was quite small but everything that we needed, very clean and very modern. The... More
