I needed to be in midtown Manhattan for a few nights and stumbled upon this relatively new Hyatt. I have to say I have always been a fan of Hyatt hotels and this one is about the best I have stayed at. It is tiny. Only a few rooms per floor. The rooms are small too but this is Manhattan!... More

Stayed at this Hotel for the first time due to the proximity to my office. Staff was extremely helpful and exceeded my expectations. Layout of the room was superb, modern décor, new technology, and very good work space/desk area. The "living room" on the second floor is a gem, great place to unwind or grab a cup of coffee. The...

Great location, beautiful rooms and friendly staff. I've stayed at the Waldorf across the street and while this hotel does not give you quite the same level of 5 star service (remember it is rated at 4.5 stars) everything else about it makes it a nicer place to stay. My suite was modern and very comfortable with very nice views.... More

Rooms are good sized for new York and the staff friendly A new hotel so everything is clean and up to date. Health club is a bit small but a great little hotel for a business stay I would recommend a stay there and try to get one of the corner rooms

I've been here for less than 24 hours now and I'm already regretting it. 3 issues so far: 1) We went out from 11am to 7pm during which time the room wasn't serviced. Offering to do this once we're back and using the room isn't helpful. It's a basic requirement of any hotel to offer clean and serviced rooms. 2)... More

Very attentive staff. Small boutique feel. Lexington Brass the restaurant is decent with nice wait staff. Carlos at the front desk makes you fell welcomed. Highly recommend this place. Location is near Grand Central and subways so hard to beat location.

We liked the quiet location, gray service and cleanliness. Not fancy or elegant but good value. Convenient to shopping and museums and great bagels. Ex-New Yorker in search of great bagels. None in N. Calif.

We come to NYC a lot to see theatre. This property's location is fantastic. The room has incredible touches like a dishwasher and well-stocked mini-bar. The staff's terrific - very attentive. The gym downstairs is impeccably kept. The whole hotel's run like clockwork. Super clean. The restaurant is great for breakfast and lunch. Highly recommended. We will definitely be back.

All standard amenities included and some surprising ones like a full wetbar with dishwasher. There aren't many rooms per floor (perhaps 5) and while the higher rooms may be... More
