Stayed here with my husband on a recent trip. Found it to be clean, quiet and close to everything one would want to see on a first trip to NYC. Other reviews warned about smaller spaces than we would expect elsewhere, but we did not think so. For a downtown hotel, it was spacious and well appointed. The staff were... More

Great hotel. Stayed here 12 years ago on my first trip to NYC, and the hotel is still as good as ever. Great location in mid-town meaning that its really easy to get uptown to all the attractions, as well as head downtown in order to chill out. The staff were friendly at all times, the bar is a great... More

The location of this hotel is one of its best features - just a few blocks from Times Square and the Empire State Building, it was perfect for us as tourists. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was cool - although I was a bit disappointed not to have one of the round tubs featured on the website. Also,... More

Stayed here last week and it is a really modern and clean hotel which I certainly would go back to. Location is great, 44th between 5th and 6th so in a great spot for Times Square and shopping on 5th Avenue. We had requested a twin room a few months prior to our visit when we booked and while the... More

Thank you for your review. I can see from your reservation that you booked through one of our travel partners and you were booked in one of our Superior Room types. We do have a limited number of twin rooms in the hotel so we do not give this room type to our travel partners to sell on our behalf... More

Stayed for 5 days at the Royalton Hotel and location is for sure one of their best arguments, between 5th and 6th av., close to Times Square, the Theatre district and a few blocks to the central Park. Rooms were clean and decently sized, quiet for this part of the city and the bathroom was big. Free wifi worked perfectly... More

I am delighted that you enjoyed our central location, clean, quiet and generously sized rooms. I do apologize that the breakfast charging was not explained to you more thoroughly. Breakfast inclusive rates offer an inclusion of Continental breakfast, should you wish to add to the Continental selection with items from the kitchen there is an additional charge. I am sorry...

Great, modern hotel in a fantastic location. Reception is friendly. However, the hotel could provide a more comfy extra bed, all they offered was a flimsy blow up bed. Great, spacious rooms. A good crash pad.

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in July. I had booked the hotel as a friend had recently stayed and spoke well of the location so I thought give it a go. The location is the best thing about the hotel and is a 5 minute walk to times square and less to Fifth Avenue. Upon arrival we... More

Had a brilliant stay at this hotel with my family. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. A bulb went in our bedroom and they fixed it that day, despite us saying there was no rush. I would highly recommend this hotel, however, it is very dark. The lobby and bar area are lighted extremely dimly, which I could imagine... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Morgans commissioned Roman and Williams, to re-create Royalton’s legendary lobby. The design – simultaneously sophisticated and complex – juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast–bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the façade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls. ... more   less
