“Stay Here Now”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I love this place. I am in NY every few months on business and stay here every time. After years of traveling for work I am over hotels - even the 5 star ones. Come and enjoy the hospitality and cosy decor. Bring a bit of calm to your busy New York visit. The owners are lovely, the cat is cute and the rooms are very comfortable. I would not stay anywhere else. Note that you can only get wifi in the library. In the rooms you will have to use the DSL cable.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back and on the side are most quiet as 23rd is a busy street.

My friend and I visited during the coldest time of year and had the warmest welcome! Everyone was very helpful and called us by name starting the first day. The beds were very comfortable and the space was cozy. I recommend the restaurant below as well. Great food and great conversation. Thank you for making our trip memorable!

We were on a business trip in Princeton, sleeping in a hotel with absolutely no soul whatsoever for 2 days. Being Europeans we decided to prolong the trip with an extra night in Manhattan. The choice of hotel was quite accidental. The placement was more or less the only reason for the choice. But sometimes you can get a pleasant surprise. We arrived at a hotel that has more soul than the rest of hotels in NYC. You really felt like you were in the home of a close friend. The room was very uniquely decorated, in a way I normally wouldn't like in a hotel, but here it just felt natural and in line with the style. The receptionist was extremely helpful and the information we received was accurate and useful. Breakfast was fine, though nothing special, but again it had the essential items and one did not feel anything was missing except for the bacon to the scrambled eggs :-)
In the hotel they have a house cat, so the only people I would not recommend this place is allergics. Thanks to the inn on 23rd for a nice experience.

If you as me don't fancy to stay on 23d floor, stay at this little cupcake at 23d Street. The rooms are very special, clean and very convinent. The breakfast in the liberary is so cosy. Beside the entra entrance there is a really nice pub/bar. I will be back!!!!

We are glad that we chose the Inn on 23rd. We have stayed in big hotels, but prefer a nice little hotel in the big city.

Here is very personal. The staff is very helpful. There is a cozy living room where we had good and variet breakfast and met the other guests.

There are water, the and coffe available all the time and we often took a cup of tea to the room followed by the cat Dorothy. We are a cat family, so it made great impression that
Dorthy can ride with a lift.

We have recommended the hotel, so you will be visited by friends who also like a hotel with a lovely atmosphere.

See you again in 2015.

We found the Inn on 23rd to be most welcoming and the staff went out of their way to help us in every way, with recommendations for dinner, general advice/help when requested and to provide a very friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed their continental breakfast with a hot dish, wine and cheese on week-end evenings and good, reasonably priced wine available every evening. Our bedroom was very spacious compared to many other centrally positioned New York hotels in a similar price range. We would be happy to go back there next time we visit New York.

Fantastic location. Amazing night's sleep. Nicely priced for those of us who do not have a NYC income. We most enjoyed, after a long day in the city, coming back to the Inn to enjoy either it's wine and cheese offering, or the ability to purchase a beverage for just $3. Breakfast was perfect. We even found cookies one afternoon waiting for us. The simple thing of having pitchers and fresh water available to take to your room - at no charge - is priceless. The Library is cozy, welcoming, relaxing. The staff is friendly and went the extra mile for us when we lost our phone chargers. Our room and our bathroom was large. Clean. We are both allergic to cats but found we had no problems. Prefer the Inn over a hotel chain any day. With 23rd street a stop on numerous subway lines, it is convenient no matter your agenda.
