“Awesome bathroom”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

A minute away from times square and the action. The toilet , or The Bog, as we Brits call it was amazing, complete with central heating and built in bidet. The downside to this place is the constant 'tipping opportunities' that soon empties your wallet.The USA is sometimes described by Brits. as "the land of swaying palms"; it didn't take us long to suss out how to play 'dodge the doorman' and 'avoid the bellhop'.Our room also had the biggest 'mini-bar' I've ever seen....but we all know the rules on mini-bars, don't we?

Room Tip: Tip the receptionist.

Stayed at this great hotel for four nights. Location is brilliant as you're just off Times Square but the road is quiet. Staff were really friendly and room superb. Would definitely return!! We had a deluxe double double room. My only one little complaint was they didn't serve free nibbles with the very expensive cocktails!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back if you want quiet.

The hotel was conveniently located and the staff was ok. We stayed 2 nights, we had our room (no 809) next to the stairs exit…when housekeeping & room service entered the floor, they slammed the door loudly…. . It is not nice to be woken up in the middle of the night with the slamming of a door.

We could not choose better hotel. Excellent place in the middle of Manhattan, few steps from TimeSquare an few minutes to 5th. Luxury and chick. What a beauty, one of the best we had. We spent a beautiful time here, shopping, walking.

My husband and I sent 4 days at the Chatwal and it was fantastic. The staff was amazing. Nothing could have been better. Our room (1004) was comfortable, roomy and no noise at all. We slept so good each night. The decor is attractive, modern and understated. The Chatwal is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and the best in NYC. You will love the staff. Friendly, helpful, attractive and attentive. What a great stay. Counting the days till we return. Many Many thanks to all at The Chatwal

A nice hotel, definitely very good if you want to go to the theater or just savour the taste of the city that never sleep. We had a nice room, not that big, but we just had to sleep there...
The bathroom was awesome, even if the japanese warmed toilet was something quite odd.
Most of the personel was kind and friendly. The concierge staff was helpful and was able to book for me good theatre seats
So... Why 4 and not 5? Because the room was so filled with electronic gadgets with many leds that was almost impossible to sleep well. Plus, when you arrive at the hotel after a 9 hrs flight and they say to you that is needed a waiting time of 30/40 min for the room to be ready, you would expect at least a little drink offered... not the suggestion of a stroll in the meantime (we arrived at 3 pm as notified. The 4pm check in policy is a bit odd)
Aldo' have the curtains opened and closed rlectronically wad a real pain, also because had to be donr from the phone...

Extremely good location if you want to stay in New York City next to Times Square without being disturbed by the traffic. High Tech room with top quality of everything and in this case it is really top quality of everything! The only thing missing is tea and coffee making facilities.

My wife´s view was that the design of the room appeals more to men than women, but she still loved it. Hotels in New York are not cheap and this is no exception, however you get top quality at the Chatwal.
