Mother/daughter weekend in NYC couldn't have been better and The Muse was the BEST modern boutique hotel for the occasion. Had a double-double on 12th floor and was just right. Located close to the theater where we saw Motown the Musical, Times Square, and many good restaurants. Was a quick walk to 5th Ave and the Rockefeller Center.. The hotel... More

In a nutshell -- the service is average to inattentive, and the hotel (the decor and physical presentation) is slightly above average (because it's a Kimpton). The Pros: ** The receptionist (young women with dark hair and glasses) who checked me in was friendly and quick. ** The Executive King room is a good size; it's nicely decorated and has... More

Had a chance to stay two nights at the Muse. I am a Kimpton member and have stayed at Kimptons in many other cities. The Muse certainly lives up to Kimpton standards. The location is stellar as was the service. Enjoyed the complimentary upgrade as well as the happy hour and morning coffee. I will definitely stay her again.

Having previously stayed at two very good hotels in Manhattan we wondered whether The Muse would live up to our prior experiences: it did. What a hotel. Great location (five-minute walk to Fifth Avenue; less so to Times Square; walkable to Central Park, etc), extremely friendly staff (although the blonde receptionist on the last day was a bit icy), excellent...

This fun, somewhat funky boutique off Times Square offers a reasonable price for a good size room, which is what I expect from Kimpton. Comfy bed, great shower, good size room. Restaurant overpriced but lots of options nearby. Street-facing rooms can be noisy. Staff very helpful. Watch out for Eurotrashy crowd during wine reception. Subways nearby.
