“Love, Love Love the Chatwal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is the second time I've stayed at the Chatwal, and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I am only a SPG Gold, but I talked to a real, live human to make the reservation (he was fantastic), and he made a note requesting an upgrade. They certainly did. I was given a 2-room suite -- one room was TV/Living Room (with bathroom), the other room was a standard hotel room. Not the standard configuration, but it was great having a separate living area. I came in after a long day and went to the hotel bar for dinner. On a Saturday after 9:00 p.m., it was completely empty, and I received great service from the bartender and a great burger (although expensive, of course). The service everywhere was fantastic--attentive, courteous, and professional. It's on the higher end of my budget, but if you want to splurge and are a SPG loyalist, this is a great property in NYC. It's close to the theater district and Times Square, but doesn't have the noise of some other hotels. Tip is to request a quiet room on the alley -- the view isn't great, but I cherish the quiet more. The bathroom is definitely "Euro" and you can't be shy with all the mirrors, but the shower is just divine. if you can swing it, stay here! They also let me change clothes at the SPA since my room wasn't ready -- after seeing the private rooms, next time I will book an appointment! It looked great. This is definitely a "boutique" type hotel that is more personal than the W or Westin.

Room Tip: If you're concerned about noise, ask for a room on the alley.

Excellent customer service, spotless rooms with plenty of storage and comfortable bed/bedding. And the shower was the best I've ever experienced! The hotel is in a good location for Times Square, 5th and Madison Avenue shopping, and Central Park. Finding a taxi can take up to 15 minutes and the traffic around the hotel is busy, so set off early for dinner/show reservations.

Stayed 3 nights recently.
Excellent attentive staff. I used the concierge, and he provided a very prompt service.
Rooms are designed well and are finished with good quality items, especially the bathroom which is large and feels expensive. Rooms are dark, but are exceptionally quiet, and the sleep was great.
Many nice small touches like Fiji water at check-in and turndown and umbrellas available at the reception desk and door to use at your leisure (without any suggestion of bean counting in the event you might inadvertently lose it).
Location is very central. Not the trendiest location in the city, but well located for sure.
Price is on high side, but I had a nice experience and there are deals available to make the price more palatable.

It's a very expensive small hotel but top notch in practically every regard. Had a King deluxe with a terrace. The terrace is large and worth the money if good weather and if you can get one as they don't have many rooms with them. The room is very nice and well equipped to suit any need tho coffee is downstairs near the lobby and a little strange that staff came by and gave me ice, not sure if there is a machine. Service is excellent, everyone remembers your name and super friendly, trying to assist in anyway they can. I've been to NYC many times and always stay in nice places tho this is the best I've stayed at but also the most expensive. I'll be doing it again.

Room Tip: Love the Terrace! If you can get one. Not many hotels in NYC have balconies or terraces

Word can't express how good this hotel is. We had a Junior Suite, worth every cent. The house keeping was excellent, couldn't have asked for more. The Desk and in particular, the concierge could not have been more helpfully or pleasant. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were given an upgrade(booked through Magelin Vacations) to a Junior Suite.

The Chatwal is two blocks from Times Square, and that is a negative to me. TS is a mecca for the absurd, the flamboyant and the 'in your face' crowd.
The hotel is an island of calm amidst this chaos. Very friendly staff.
The rooms are great if you are a bat. Extremely dark, small and overdone with technology. The high tech, computerized toilet/bidet did not flush well, the curtains opened on their own at 6:45am and the lighting was very poor.
The two times we needed a cab, the doormen suggested we go to the corner and hail one ourselves...the last time with three pieces of luggage! We found help from the Miilenium Hotel across the street.

Great service, location, comfort and style. Try the junior suite, it is wonderful! The decor is clean and modern while being warm and comfortable. The staff will remember your name and see that all that you need is there. The spa is fabulous as well. It is small, but the treatments are perfect! Although the hotel is close to Time Square, it is quiet. The food is great. I really can not say enough good about The Chatwal. We did not find fault with any part of our stay. We look forward to returning.
