Situated on W 44th Street, this hotel is perfect to walk into Time Square, Grand Central Station, Central Park, 5th Avenue, Mid Town and, whilst longer, a perfectly manageable walk into Union Square, Greenwich, Soho and Down Town. The Hotel, decorated by Philip Stark, is stunning and very ' Sex in The City'. The Lobby Bar is very popular with... More

Hello! Your title has 3 main points which I love about Royalton. First off, we are situated in one of the best locations right in the heart of Manhattan with easy access to subways, restaurants, shops and so much more. Located right on 44th street, you’ll be only 2 short blocks away from Bryant Park which transforms itself into a... More

Overall a really nice hotel - fantastic location for walking to all Mid-Town attractions. Bedroom and bathroom clean, comfortable and bigger than expected - great shower. Decor is a love it or hate it kind of thing but certainly unique and characterful. There was some noise from the street at night but you would expect that in any big city... More

I’m not going to lie to you; I was pleased to read your review because of your realistic and understanding attitude. For any big city, especially the city deemed “the one that never sleeps” you can imagine it must be extremely difficult for us to guarantee you won’t get woken up in the middle of the night by sirens or...

This is a relatively small hotel but nevertheless less has a large bar a restaurant and other facilities. The location on W 44th is very convenient and the hotel is in decent condition. The monochromatic gray color scheme in the rooms emphasizes the contemporary theme throughout and I must say is a bit depressing on a rainy winters day. It... More

Stephen – thank you for writing a kind review on Royalton. You are certainly correct in saying we are a smaller boutique hotel located on 44th street convenient to a variety of restaurants, shops and attractions! I’m sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the look of your room. Our rooms are designed to have a more contemporary look to... More

We were in NYC for dinner and a show. I had not stayed at the Royalton for some time, and since its location was perfect, I decided to give it another try.

Thank you for coming back to Royalton! I am so thrilled you had a great time. We did renovate our lobby area so it should seem new to you. Actually, our previous lobby looked much different than the one we have now and most people love coming in and sitting by the fire. While we are in midtown, I can’t... More

We did a whirlwind overnight in NYC this weekend and stayed at the Royalton. The lobby is dark which I loved with a huge fireplace and comfy posh leather seating. The front desk and bellman where all super friendly and we were able to get an early check in. The bathrooms are very new age and loved the glass and... More

I've stayed in a number of NY hotels, but since 2003 I haven't dreamt of staying anywhere else. I'd hate to. Its location is ideal for everything: midtown, near Times Square, without being noisy, right next to theater-land on one side and Fifth Avenue on the other, equidistant for uptown and downtown, and within easy reach of the subway for...

I found the decor very dated and the hotel lobby and hallways were very dark. The staff were not customer focused.

Very disappointed with this hotel. I'm not sure if we even received a head nod from the door man upon arrival.Although, he did use his foot to open the door for us,as his hands were busy texting with his cell phone.

The one thing about fashionable places is that there'll come a time when they're not fashionable any more. The Royalton almost invented the notion of "boutique" hotel, was a bastion of Hip Hotels, and was the only place to be seen in New York in the 90s. What remains now is an icon of that era; a little piece of... More
