I stay in NY every week and choose this boutique hotel over any other in the city. I am treated like family. You will not find any better service, from the manager, front desk, concierge, lounge attendants to housekeeping. They treat you like you are the only guest in the hotel. The accommodations are spotless, roomy and rather luxurious. Location... More

The hotel is small in room numbers but immense in the way it treats it's guests.Our room was very comfortable and decorated to a high standard with every amenity you would need.The... More

My husband and I stayed here for the final 4 nights of our honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier. On check-in, once they found out we were on honeymoon, we had our room upgraded, were given free access to wifi and were sent a bottle of wine to our room. Throughout our stay, the staff were friendly and helpful,... More

You are greeted so warmly, as if you are family. We always love returning to this special Boutique Hotel. A few blocks off the beaten path, but so worth it. Quiet....sleeping at night you do not hear a thing...no street noises. Beds are most comfortable, clean and great service. We needed extra towels, called and in 5 minutes they were... More

This hotel is conveniently located in heart of the city. It's on grand central which is hub to metro north and nyc subway. Check in is a breeze with many agents available to keep everyone moving. I chose double beds so that I can get a bigger room and not feel claustrophobic. As long as you book in advance, the... More

After being disgusted with the original hotel I checked into and demanding a refund I was left with no place to stay due to it being a popular travel weekend. I came to this Hyatt at about 1am exhausted from trying so many other hotels. They quickly got me into a room and turned my trip around. The room was... More

Terrible experience, stayed 5 nights with malfunctioning lights in the bedroom. Middle of the night lights would go on and wake you up. We told the reception about this and "technicians" supposedly fixed it, not true... Promised a new room and refused the new room later that day! As other reviews indicated the (only) 2 elevators smelled like weed. On... More

Our family stayed in one of the units with a terrace. The restaurant was nice because of the food, but it was not very accomodating to small children. Next time we will just order room service. The room was very clean and had updated decor. The location of this hotel is ideal and we will definitely stay again.

I guess I don't really appreciate the new Boutique-Style hotels...this place is in a good location but I walked into the so-called lobby and felt I was in a basement...the front desk was a table with two people with laptops (I thought it was a study group). We had a reunion group with 7 rooms and the price was one... More

48 Lex is located close to most things in Manhattan, which is very convenient. Rooms are nice and come across as clean and new, only thing is that the ventilation system is a bit noisy. There is a little kitchen in the room, which is quite nice if you don't want to go out to eat, but prefer working in... More
