The manager of this hotel is incredibly rude and has no manners at all. She almost didn't let us in because our plane had been delayed through no fault of our own, obviously, which made an already stressful situation unbearable. She kept putting the phone down on me and telling me to phone booking.com because she "doesn't deal directly with... More

We had great holiday here. Felicia made us very welcome and was helpful in giving up tips on how to have a good holiday in New York. The breakfast provided gave us a good start to the day and as did the pleasant conversation with Felicia. The breakfast was more than adequate with fresh fruit, a range of pastries and... More

After waiting half an hour in the snow with another guest we were then let in with no apology. We did get chocolates for valentines though. The house was beautiful and much nicer than other places we had stayed for a similar price. The room was large and well decorated, the bed was also very comfortable. We had breakfast included...

I had a really nice stay here. It felt like a home away from home. Felicia and her support staff were very kind and warm to me, so I have nothing but positive comments to make. I was surprised when I arrived to the front of the home and really thought it was an abandoned place, but I rang the... More

I had booked a stay at this hotel and had to cancel as my wife suffered an injury at work.

The Queen Room was perfect, the beds were comfy, the chairs and couches too, and the decor reminiscent of old New York, a brownstone in old New York. Breakfast is a real treat, copious fresh fruit and a choice of hot food cooked to order. Generally the service was excellent, everything very clean and the house is lovely. Overall, a... More

I stayed at the Renaissance during the Christmas holiday with my family and was very impressed with the hotel. First, the location is unbeatable. The view from the restaurant is particularly amazing. Furthermore, I found the staff very knowledgeable and friendly. We made particular use of the concierge, Omar, who was absolutely exceptional. He provided us recommendations for restaurants that...

We booked online a considerable time in advance of our trip but kept in touch so Felicia knew we were coming to avoid any confusion as others had experienced. We arrived quite late at night and also encountered some difficulty in making our arrival known. Felicia then discovered that the party in our room were still there! To cut along... More
