Me and a friend have recently returned from an 8 night stay at the king and grove. We had read reviews before we went and as always there was the odd bad review ( you can't please everyone) but they couldnt be more wrong.
We booked through thomsonworldwide and travelled from london to jfk after a smooth transfer from supershuttle we were greeted by friendly reception staff who checked us in promptly and the porter showed us to our room on the 8th floor and helped us with our bags. Our twin room was gorgeous, decor was modern with flt screen tv not that we had time to watch tv, included safe (very impressed as most places in europe charge extra for this) hairdryer, iron all in the room. Beds extremely comfortable, extremely clean and maids visited daily making beds, changing towels and squaring up of the room, One day they forgot to leave toilet paper but after a call to reception it was delivered to our room within 10 minutes. Not much of a view from our window but who cares when empire state building is less than 3 blocks away! :) some people said about noise but we found it to be quite quiet, the odd siren and person coming in at night not exactly a midnight rave. some people also said about the temperature and that their rooms were too hot/cold, we found it to be cosy and warm and if it got too hot we opened the window a jar while we were in. the only fault i could possibly agree with is when we had been shopping our room started to fill up with bags and it was hard to get around the room for the two suitcases and bags we had the room was a bit on the small side but we managed and it didnt take away from the quality of the room. we were really happy with everything. The hotel is in the perfect location on 29th street east between madison and 5th a short walk from rockerfella center, nyc public library and flat iron building, subway is on the next street so you could get to anywhere easily, the perfect midtown location! 29 dollars we paid for a 7 day pass and a short ride to 42nd street and shuttle to times square was excellent. If your looking for breakfast that isnt take out, head north on lexington towards 33rd street and youll find murray hill diner, perfect all american breakfast pancakes waffles and eggs set us up for our busy days. I would definately return to king and grove. Dont believe the bad reviews we loved it and if we return to new york we would definately stay again.
