“VERY Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Took my wife on a NYC trip for her birthday and decided to 'splurge' on a unique boutique hotel near Times Square. Did not regret it. Hotel was fantastic from staff check-in, to complimentary wine tasting, to the beautiful room and comfortable bed, and the fantastic location.
Since we were traveling in the off season, the room rates were quite reasonable so we were very happy.
Highly recommend.

I stay here every year for our shareholders meeting. It's a nice hotel and the rooms are large by NYC standards.

The Muse has rooms that are very much in the playful, handsome Kimpton mode. The color scheme is black, white and gray, the beds live up to Kimpton's reputation for comfort, and the rooms are fairly sizable in comparison to most NYC hotels. (The hotel lobby, in contrast, is rather drab.) The staff is pleasant, and the hotel's location is good, mid-way between Sixth Avenue and Broadway, within walking distance of Grand Central Station. There are two negative factors at the Muse: the restaurant/bar on premises has limited hours and there is no place to sit down and have coffee or food in a common area after 10 a.m. on any day of the week -- you have to leave the hotel and go to a nearby cafe or coffee shop. The other problem is that this is a relatively noisy, business-oriented neighborhood in Manhattan. When I stayed there in May 2012, apparent construction at two spots on the same street, plus trucks passing on 46th Street, necessitated ear plugs.

I simply can’t praise this hotel and its staff highly enough. The last couple of times we’ve visited New York we stayed in the Westin, but this time no room was available at the time of booking. We chose the Muse based on the location and our previous experience with Kimpton hotels (we are “keep in touch” members).
We e mailed in advance to say that we would be celebrating our wedding anniversary during our stay and with this in mind could we have the nicest available room – we’ll it’s always worth a try! On arrival our anniversary was acknowledged at Reception and there was a bottle of Prosecco and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us in a lovely corner room with views from the 14th floor. At no time did we hear construction noise from our room; gentle traffic noise could be heard during the night, but not enough to disturb sleep.
Our package included complimentary continental breakfast which included coffee, juice, and a selection of fresh fruit, pastries, toast and preserve’s. The quality and service was excellent and was probably one the most relaxed breakfasts we’d experienced in a hotel setting. On one occasion there was no table available, but we were offered coffee while we waited and a table soon became free.
All the staff we experienced from check-in to check out, at the door or in the restaurant couldn’t have made us feel more welcome.
The evening wine receptions are a welcome bonus, just what’s needed after a day’s sight-seeing, and a refill was always offered when we took back our empties!
We will definitely choose the Muse when we next return to New York.

One of the best hotels I've stayed in. Great location near time square. Friendly, helpful staff. Don't even have to ask for help and they are right there to assist with making you comfortable, getting napkins to use, giving directions and opening doors. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Very clean and comfortable and fun.

Absolutely brilliant hotel, clean and tidy and very contemporary. Beautifully decorated rooms. Friendly staff and sooooooo close to times square but far enough from the hustle and bustle!!! Complimentary wine between 5 & 6 pm is a must too!!!! Couldn't recommend higher!!

Fantastic "boutique" hotel just a few steps from Times Square. Everything you could ask for. Having stayed in NYC a number of times, this is by far the best hotel yet. The double/double rooms were huge!

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor, great view of the side of Times Square (but no noise)
