Great location right near the Rockefeller Center. Rooms are an appropriate size, not very large but efficient. Staff was friendly and helpful. Very quiet at night for sleeping. Liked the bottled water. We started each day walking by the Today show in the plaza near by. Short walk to Times Square and Central Park, 5th Avenue and St Patricks Cathedral... More

We stayed in June 2014 and we are very happy with our room. We booked the Standard room and it's very nice size for NYC. The location is really good. We really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. We would definitely come back. On the side note, we loved their distilled water system. You have unlimited access to fresh cool... More

Hotels in Manhattan are too expensive and too small. These are basic givens of life, and must be kept in mind with any reviews. Having said that, this hotel is an excellent value, if you keep those points in mind. The Jewel is in a very nice, central location. Close to all midtown sights and attractions, but far enough from... More

I stayed at this property in June 2014 with two friends. Our room was decent sized, especially by New York standards - small though for most U.S. cities. We however were quite happy with it. There was a double bed and a twin foldout chair. The room was narrow enough that walking between the beds and the tv on the... More

Great hotel. Clean room and friendly staff! In town for St. Patrick's Day. Right near cathedral! Very quiet as you are on a side street. Enough room for my husband and I--have stayed in many NYC hotels and was impressed at the size of the room, we were not tripping over each other or our bags! I'd stay here again!

Our family of 2 adults and 2 kids were in a two bed two bath suite with a kitchenette on the 6th floor! It was PERFECT! On every floor the jewel offered a chilled water station with bottles, on the 5th floor they had an ice machine and a washer dryer with individual detergent and dryer sheets! Beyond these comforts...

I booked 2 rooms at the Jewel for Saturday July 5. We were driving up from Miami Florida to celebrate our anniversary with friends. Unfortunately it was when hurricane Arthur was moving up the coast. I called the hotel on Thursday and asked if I could change due to the weather. They said they could not help me and that... More

This place, while nicely located if you're going to tour midtown, is very small and very much a self-service kind of place. You're supposed to swipe yourself in to get a key (didn't work- had to do it manually with a staffer's help), To access your floor, you need to dip your keycard in a slot in the elevator (couldn't...

We wanted a hotel that wouldn't break our bank account, but was convenient to the Theater District, restaurants and was clean and comfortable. The Jewel at Rockefeller Center was all that and more. We spent four night there and would come back in a "New York minute".

I booked this hotel due to location, I had business in the Rockefeller center and the location was ideal, literally across the street. Shopping, restaurants, theatre all near by, can walk to most things. I realize rooms in NYC are small, but this room felt a bit "tired" to me. The towels were rough, some were frayed, there were 2...
