great location, big quiet rooms, very comfortable bed, very nice people and good service...breakfast ok. Coffee good. Only thing is the furniture and paint all a little distressed or maybe a lot distressed It is a historic old brownstone but the furniture looks like its been there since the beginning. Low lighting, but I would definitely stay again.

The hotel itself is an amazing find! A converted brownstone tucked into a quiet block on Irving Place. The rooms are huge, especially for NYC standards. And the ceilings, furnishings, linens (frette) & every touch are a special treat. So why only 3 stars, you ask? I had a poor experience that escalated quickly because the staff isn't trained for...

We stayed here for one night but wish it was longer. The hotel is in a great location (quiet street but very close to Union Square) and is different from other hotels nearby. It's a converted brownstone decorated to look like it's right out of the 30s. Our room was much bigger than any other hotel room I've stayed in... More

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It's cozy, charming and very different than any other hotel I have stayed in in NYC. The staff is great-helpful, pleasant and quick to respond. The manager personally greeted me and took the time to chat. The morning breakfast is lovely and old fashioned. The room was spacious with a very... More

My husband and I stayed in the Madame Olenska (Junior suite located on the second floor) last week. The outside noise during the night and early hours of the morning was absolutely unbearable.We hardly slept and left absolutely exhausted after paying $600/night. I would recommend that the hotel consider the addition of sound proof windows. This would be a huge... More

We have all stayed in boutique, five star, modern, classic hotels around the world. The Inn at Irving Place is a whole different experience. Shabby chic is one of the ways to describe it, staying at an old friends house could be another. Yes the rooms need attention, yes there is no lift, BUT the middle of a great city,... More

This is a lovely bed and breakfast. Cozy and comfortable, but really tired and dated. It reminded me of my single days in a NYC pre-war apartment. We were on the top floor (of three) and heard all the activity on the street first thing sunday morning. There was a continental breakfast in their very famous tea room, however, there... More

We loved our stay at this hotel. Open again just after Hurricane Sandy it was warm & friendly. Decorated in an old-world style, great thought has gone in to every detail. It really is a calm tranquil oasis to escape to from the 'madness' of NYC! Very friendly and helpful staff.

It was like staying in a Goodwill store. Or at Grandma's house. I assume when the furniture was first purchased, they selected unique pieces for each room - which is nice but the problem with this is that you can't just grab replacement chair #6 from basement storage when it gets old, stained and broken. The entertainment was good though,... More
