I have been staying here for years, and the staff has always been terrific. Not only helpful, but they make you feel like they know you and appreciate your staying with them. My housekeeper on the 24th floor, Diana, always asks about my son and makes me feel right at home. She is great, as are all the people there.

This hotel was close to where I needed to be.Very accomodating services and staff. Nice fitness center with just enough cardio machines and free weights for a good workout or on the go! The food at the National was delicious but a little pricey. Great amenities, and special services offered! Will return!

There were a number of little touches about this hotel that gains it a five star rating: The location is excellent, a short walk from the Chrysler Building, Rockerfeller Centre, Grand Central Station, Emprire State Building and The High Line. Further flung destinations were also very accessible via the Subway on the corner of the street. The door and desk... More

This was our first stay in NYC so it was important to stay central without breaking the bank but close to everything. From the minute we were met by the doorman to the luggage porter, from the reception desk to the cleaning staff, everyone was helpful, friendly and really seem eager to assist. The location cannot be beat. Metro just... More
