I made a reservation on Booking.com specifically at the Lombardy so that I could get two queen beds. When I arrived, there were two beds across from each other (like being in camp). Since I normally sleep in a king, it took me a couple of nights to recognize that these were not queen beds. I liked the Lombardy in... More

My daughter and I enjoyed staying at the Lombardy while visiting with relatives also visiting NYC and also staying in the Lombardy in a 2 bedroom apartment. The location is walking distance to Rockefeller Center, the Waldorf Astoria, Fifth Avenue shopping and Central Park. The Lombardy is a good value and is a welcoming place. I recommend.

My mom, my 14 year old daughter and I stayed in a one bedroom suite with 2 queens. I've stayed here before for work, and I truly enjoyed my family stay (all three of us did). The location of the hotel, on 56th between Lex and Park, is great. Safe at night, and easy during the day to get cabs,... More

We hadn't stayed here for a few years but it was just like coming home. You know a hotel is well-run when the staff never change. Our one-bedroom apartment had everything we needed including a truly comfortable bed and our own kitchenette. An addition since we last stayed-a branch of 9th Street Espresso off the lobby with a free coffee... More

I never stay in N.Y.C. hotels. I grew up there and my parents are still in the same apartment but I decided to give myself a little bit of 'space' as I descended onto NYC for an intense week of rehearsals for a concert at Lincoln Center in mid February. I needed peace and quiet. I needed to be able... More

This was the second time I stayed at the Lombardy, and it's gotten considerably worse. I think that it's incumbent upon staff to make sure that a room is ready for the guest. But here were the problems: 1. There's no central air, and I walked into the room and the window heater was off, so it took a couple... More

Its entirely possible that the 5-star review has been colored slightly by my horrible stay at the millennium Broadway. I moved off-broadway after the ball drop to save a little money(200 per night) and am so glad I did because the level of service offered by the lombardy is so much better than the millennium Broadway. their over-the-top commitment to...

I'm a frequent traveller to New York and had liked the appearance of the Lombardy, with it's impressive, traditional exterior and warm inviting lobby. On first look I also liked the size of the room i.e. very large with two televisions and a kitchen area. However, I then discovered the close proximity of what was evidently a 24 hour construction...

The Lombardy Hotel fit our needs perfectly. The room was very large (900+ square feet), two nice TVs, a full kitchen, nice bathroom and was beautifully decorated. Living room had a very nice sofa and loveseat combination. Elevators were fast. Housekeeping was very efficient. Hotel is a short walk to Central Park, Times Square, 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center, Broadway and... More
