I've had several trip to NY over the past few years and stay at a different hotel each time. This was my first stay at The Muse and I will definitely stay here on my subsequent trips.
You can't beat the location. Great access to Times Square without being right in all the congestion. The staff were extremely friendly and incredibly helpful. The front desk staff were always happy to assist us, we never had to wait for our check-in / check-out or anytime we had an inquiry. There was always someone available. The food in the lounge was great (we just had some appetizers a few times, but all delicious and well priced). And of course, the wine reception every night is a great way to unwind and rest your very sore feet after a great day of walking around the city.
While I didn't bring my dog with me, I am a dog person and the hotel is very accommodating to guests and their dogs. They even had a little welcome sign in the doorway that includes the name of the arriving dogs that day (seriously, how cute is that! - dog guests get their own signs!). I just loved that aspect of this hotel. At one point we even saw the front desk acting as a bit of a doggy daycare (just for 10 minutes mind you) while the owners of the dogs ran an errand. It really helped round out how great and accommodating this hotel is to all guests.
Our room itself was spacious (rare for NY) though I'm sure we got a great deal as things are a bit slow in January. The housecoats gave us a big laugh (were leopard print and zebra print!).
And even at our 4:00 am departure, staff were bright and smiling and check out was a breeze.
