My husband and I are repeat visitors to 1871 House. We have traveled to NYC over 12 times since we fell in love with the city and we have stayed in many areas of Manhattan, but we can honestly say we will never stay anywhere else.
The house itself is beautiful, well appointed, and serene, lacking in nothing to help create a wonderful memory. We have stayed in three different rooms and we are hard pressed to select our favorite, as all have been wonderful. The staff is amazing creating a fine balance between respecting your privacy, yet letting you know they are always available to assist you with your questions or needs. My last trip I had to make alone and I will never be able to express how welcome, safe and cared for they made me feel. At the end of the day, returning to this lovely house, entering a room that draws you in and lures you to relax in my opinion is a true hidden gem.
The area of location is in our opinion perfect. You have access to all things NYC, without feeling like a pinball when you walk down the streets, if you know what I mean. We even have found so many of the restaurants and local merchants to have a neighborhood feel to their establishment as they are more welcoming, communicative and overall engaging. The area is very safe and each night we often stroll to Central Park to sit near the fountains and enjoy the lights and scenes of the city.
I promise you will not be disappointed and you will want to return over and over again.
