“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed in the hotel Sunday - Wednesday. The hotel has a perfect Times square location and is very convenient for theater visits and the Times square area. The lobby is very small but the staff is very friendly and go out of their way to assist you. The rooms are good sized for manhattan. Our bathroom in room 711 was a little tight. The commode was so close to the wall and the door that is was uncomfortable to use. The air conditioner rattled a bit and bothered me on the first night. The biggest problem is the elevators. They are slow and we waited several minutes both up and down. Love the happy hour. They served both wine and Sangria and was a nice touch. This is our 3rd Kimpton property and will be back!

We are so pleased you enjoyed our location in Times Square.

Thank you for the comments regarding the AC. We will make sure our engineer takes a look at this unit.

We are nearly finished updating our elevators to be efficient for our guests and will be complete in a couple of days.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

Service was excellent but a bit cooler than other Kimptons....maybe because it's NYC. Nice sized room for myself and my 3 kids. Location is great for tourists. Didn't love that the bar area seemed like it was not a seamless part of the hotel, as the lobby is tiny. I wasn't allowed to take my famous "Kimpton happy hour" glass of wine and sit in the bar area when the lobby was full.

We stayed at The Muse this past weekend. This was our second time staying at The Muse and again, all the staff did all they could to make sure we had an excellent trip. We were in NYC to celebrate my son's 13th birthday and we were so appreciative of the cupcakes delivered to our room to celebrate this special birthday. Hopefully, we be able to visit again soon!

There is really nothing negative I can say about this hotel. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful from the moment we walked in. They were informative and told us about events happening in the area. The room was clean as it should be. The bed was super comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was absolutely perfect .We forgot some things (toothpaste, etc.) and the hotel provided them for us free of charge. The location can't be beat. You're steps away from Times Square and Broadway theaters as well as countless restaurants. There is also a complimentary wine hour which is awesome for guests!! I highly recommend staying here!

I love the Muse and always stay here in NY. The staff are extremely helpful - my agent didn't specify the type of room and we were initially given the wrong one (King rather than two double beds for my daughter and I). It was immediately and politely corrected even though it was very full and busy. The morning coffee / tea bar and evening wine tasting just add to the pleasure. Although Times Square is busy, it's very quiet in the room. Sometimes, I don't want to go outside to face the crowds! We also had room service and found the food to be excellent - Thai chili shrimp were particularly fantastic.

Room Tip: Wifi is free if you are a Kimpton member and you get a raid the minibar pass then as well. It's...

Dear cdnfamilytraveller,

We love you too!

We do apologize for the issues with the room type however so pleased we were able to get this rectified immediately.

Yes, sometimes the hustle and bustle of times Square can be daunting however we can be a nice serenity away from it all.

Thank you for mentioning Nios… thai chili shrimp. We know what we want for dinner.

Come back and visit us again soon.

In the concrete jungle of nyc the Muse is a gem. From our entry to the hotel on the muse was a awesome experience. At the front door there is a dog shaped chalkboard welcoming their furry friends by name at the reception desk there is a adorable little dog sitting on the counter that is so well behaved I first thought it was a stuffed animal! The staff was great, very accommodating, friendly and personal. They wished my granddaughter a "happy birthday ". That made her day. The room was large on nyc standards and the bath was large and beautiful. When we can back from the theater at 1am there was a gift for my granddaughter. 8 mini cupcakes a chocolate taxi cab filled with cookies italian water and bag of goldfish. David the concierge took awesome care of our needs. He also wore many hats as he personally cared for our luggage for the afternoon after we checked out. Did I mention the free wine tasting?? I won't stay anywhere else but the Muse. Actually will stay at other kimptons next time I travel. Hope they open in more cities

Room Tip: Not sure. Buildings around it

I recently stayed at the Muse Hotel. It's a typical Kimpton Property - a small boutique hotel with excellent service and perks.

The hotel lobby is modern and chic. Kind of feels like a W. When we checked in, we received a $15 bar credit - nice! Our room was on the 8th floor. It was large for NYC. The bathroom had plenty of counter space and decent water pressure.

My wife and I took advantage of the nightly happy hours and drank a few free glasses of wine.

I would give the hotel a 5, but it's just too close to Times Square, which is a mad house. There are just way too many people all hours of the day and night. I would recommend the hotel - just avoid 7th Ave.

Dear HayesBarton,

Thank you for being part of our Kimpton Karma rewards program. We are so happy to know you enjoyed the perks that come with this.

Times Square is definitely a busy place but we are just off the beaten path and with a close proximity to lots of the great sites of New York City.

We hope we can welcome you back again soon.
