My husband and I recently stayed here when visiting New York. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and roomy. It was located close to many attractions and restaurants.

I have reviewed this property before but one again wanted to give them 5 stars for remaining to be the only hotel to consider in New York City! Their perfect location, the restaurant Lexington Brass and their incredible staff, Carlos, Jose, Tommy and Tandon Nihaal! I know I'm forgetting some but every one there exceed the most discerning travelers expectations!... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and was expecting a standard flagged Hyatt hotel - but was quite pleasantly surprised! This hotel acts and looks like a boutique-hotel brand. There is a compact lobby on the ground floor, but a relaxing and well designed lounge on the second floor. I stayed on the 9th floor and there were only six... More

When everything in your visit goes well, you notice the small things, like room to move around, a Nespresso machine in the room, quiet walls despite people talking in the hall. I didn't really want to stay over on Lexington, but a walk in NYC is always fun, so I didn't end up minding the stroll. Yes, the lobby is... More

This hotel is beautifully decorated, with a wonderful location. The staff is very courteous, and helpful. The issues we had was the lack of a shower curtain, then the shower curtain would not stay up, next was the air conditioner. I seemed to be very fickle on cooling. The last is the elevators. Two very slow elevators for a 25... More

We had our vacation in New York for 8 days and were very happy to stay in the Hyatt 48 Lex. This hotel is clean and our request for a room on a high floor was accepted which we were very happy about. The lounge is nice too!

Love this Hyatt...i really do. The rooms are wonderful, roomy, contemporary, impeccably clean, and comfortable. The service is stellar, as the staff seems genuinely warm and inviting. The dining room (which i think is 'third party' managed/vs. 'Hyatt') is great. I have loved my breakfasts there, and evening drinks. Everything about this hotel is wonderful.....until you try to get to... More

My spouse and I stayed at the Hyatt 48 Lex for one night in July 2014. From the moment I check in, the staff was courteous, helpful and upbeat.

The hotel has no lobby thus when more than 2 parties are checking in it is very tight. There is a curtain that separates the "lobby" with the bistro next door. One of the specials there is Kale. The odor is not pleasant. The Bistro shares the hotel's 2 elevators for the bathroom. The elevators are impossibly slow. I have... More

Dear Iscstl, I would like to apologize for the events that transpired during your stay. I do wish that you had spoken to the hotel about these matters while you were still in house so we could have addressed them immediately. Should you wish to discuss this further please reach out to me directly. Thanks, Kelsey kelsey.pratt@hyatt48lex.com More

Lounge on first floor was convenient for drinks. Ground floor bar and restaurant was busy, with lots of locals after work. Service quick and efficient with mid range prices. Cost of wi fi per device was too expensive in 2014. Over the top. Rooms very comfortable with great bathroom. Good wine list
