We stayed in March 2013 for 4 nights to celeberate my birthday.
This hotel is simply superb
The service from the beginning to the end was so on point
even before I arrived the helpful concierge Pierre and Bryan Stendahl
Had basically helped me plan me short stay to a T.
The best part of the trip was my room - As im an SPG member and it was my
birthday i was given an upgrade.
All I could say was wow- best hotel expierence I've had in my life
it would be so difficult to top. Genuinely a cool relaxed atmosphere.
Last time I was in NYC i stayed at a horrible hotel called Carlyle which was stuffy
and Rubbish. The Chatwal is a worldclass 5* Hotel in my opinion and
is probably your best bet for a short stay in NYC.
I would definately, stay there again without a shadow of doubt- my room felt like home
Just much nicer :)
Only 1-semi negative point I think the location is good, but not great.
I would love this exact same hotel with exact same staff especially concierge and the Butler
just in downtown Soho or Meatpacking, as there was a somewhat family/older couple
vibe. But not withstanding this is a small negative.
And I liked the fact the Hotel was so calm and relaxed all the time as too much of
a constant party vibe could be a bit much.
