I arrive quite late, and am given the «Penthouse»; ie large-ish top floor room, which is extremely hot. AC at full blast barely noticeable, and it’s 5 am before it’s below 25°C and I’m able to sleep. Bed is nice and soft. Wine fridge filled with champagne and prosecco is not turnd on. With the heat in the room I... More

I stayed here for one night while on a recent business trip. I found the hotel room to be large (apparently larger than average for NYC), very clean with a nice 'minimalist' style - and a great shower. The room had a small balcony but it looked straight out onto other buildings and was near a noisy air conditioning unit... More

Initially...an impressive, small boutique hotel with a slick entrance and foyer of white marble. Rooms are attractive and minimalist ...with lovely bathrooms. This is where it all ends, as there is little else provided for the "hospitality"or other needs of visitors to NYC? This hotel appears to have no desire to attend to the "hospitality needs" of its guests. (... More

I was injured at the Gotham by a piece of metal that was in the padding of the bed. All I asked was for help to get to a minor medical and asked them to pay for the shot. They refused any help, manager was very rude and accused me of jabbing a piece of metal in my back. I... More

Lots of fun! Took Amtrak round trip from upstate. Found a nice hotel using TA. Walked, ate and drank at several places on Saturday and on Sunday we took the LI RR to Belmont. A very easy ride. The train leaves about a half hour after the last race, which is good, too. Brings you right to Penn to catch... More

What an amazing property! Great location, staff was amazing and the balcony off of our room was breathtaking. No matter what the view there is no way you can't enjoy sitting out on your balcony listening to the sounds below!! Can't stop recommending this hotel!

I booked a room in June that sounded just like one I'd stayed in at this hotel in March...sitting area w/couch, terrace, high ceilings. I got a room that was only a bit bigger than the bed. When I complained and asked where the sitting area was, I was told it's the small chair in the corner. The terrace was... More

We stayed at the Gotham in May 2014. Right from the word go we were impressed. The staff were so polite and welcoming, the rooms are gorgeous (especially if you have one with a view on the front!) and they come with your own private balcony. They are a finished to a lovely standard and the quality of everything in... More

Modern, clean , fresh, luxurious with generous sized room and bathroom. No city noise at all in rooms at the back of the hotel. Free WiFi available. The staff were excellent, friendly and very courteous. The location was great on 46th East, just off 5th Avenue and close to a number of New York attractions.
