My husband and I just returned from our first-ever visit to NYC. I did quite a bit of research before we left, including alot on where to STAY! We settled on Times Square for its mid-town location, and then went from there. I checked numerous hotel reviews of various chains on TA, but having been a guest of the Kimpton chain before (in DC), I checked to see what hotels they had in the area. The Muse Hotel sounded terrific. We got a terrific rate for a large suite (Room 1802) which had a door that shut off the bedroom from the "sitting room" area. Nice for couples like us when one or the other may retire to bed earlier than the other. The front desk staff (Cory in particular) and door staff was top notch, always offering friendly greetings and eager to help. Concierge service was good too, they helped us book a helicopter flight over Manhattan on Mother's Day (my gift idea for myself - and far more fun than brunch, haha--it was AMAZING!). Top all that off with LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION and this is the perfect place to stay! Just off Times Square, between 6th and 7th. We could see the lights of Times Square from our window. We will definitely return to NYC and will only stay at the Muse Hotel.
