“Terrific gem of a hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I just concluded my first stay at The Bryant Park and was very impressed. The staff was attentive, and the room was clean, bright, and quite spacious for NYC. Directly across the street from Bryant Park and the NYC library made this an ideal location in the city. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to the city.

Room Tip: A view of the park is an delight, and yet amazingly quiet for being right on 40th.

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with our family at the Bryant Park Hotel. They surprised us with a bottle of champagne. Wonderful staff, they were courteous, friendly and helpful. We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the rooms. They were clean, inviting and more spacious than we thought. The Bathroom was amazing and my teenage granddaughters loved the shampoo and hair conditioner We had a partial view of Bryant Park. All of us enjoyed the Happy Hour.,

Room Tip: 7th floor or above and Bryant Park View

Stayed at the Bryan Park Hotel for 4 days. Hotel is really cool with a Scandinavian touch too the rooms. Staff is great (friendly and service minded), superb food at the restaurant (Asian Fusion) and great location Midtown Manhattan.

They also have a 24h gym

Great hotel in a very convenient location. From the moment we arrived, we were greated with a smile and that continued throughtout our stay by the entire staff. The room was very clean. Happy hour in the Cellar Bar is a nice touch! Great value for the price. Will absolutely stay here again!

Room Tip: Best room would be one overlooking Bryant Park.

The Bryant Park Hotel is always on pointe. The entertainment concierge staff is exceptional. I sent an e-mail off to Sarah a week before we arrived and she read my mind. Within a few minutes, she responded with a list of chic, hip, restaurants that were exactly what we wanted. No sifting through guide books. It was great to work with a New York insider. This hotel does not dissappoint. All of the staff are friendly and professional. The view of the park is charming.

Room Tip: The junior suite is worth the extra money.

This was our second stay at the Bryant Park Hotel. Everyone is always friendly and courteous. Rooms are clean and spacious enough for a NYC hotel. Unfortunately, we didn't have a good view overlooking the park this time.
During the week, they have a nice happy hour in the Cellar Bar.
The best is the location. Bryant Park is right out front. There are plenty of shops to get breakfast and lunch to picnic in the park.

My husband and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary by taking a long-weekend trip to New York. We wanted something upscale, clean and modern with luxurious amenities that felt like a splurge without shelling out the $800+ that some hotels require for similar features. After extensively researching hotels on Trip Advisor, we decided to stay at Bryant Park hotel. The rooms are very modern, clean, and spacious. We were in room 1904 – it was a junior suite with a king bed, had a beautiful terrace overlooking Bryant Park, and a large bathroom with a separate tub and shower. The location of the hotel is perfect – very close to Times Square without being right on top of all the craziness (it is a couple of blocks of the main path). Therefore, it is a bit quieter and more subdued. The hotel staff went above and beyond to cater to us, exceeding our customer service expectations. They contacted us ahead of time to find out if they could help us in any way with trip planning. When they found out we were celebrating our 10-year anniversary, they contacted my husband and set up the room with some special romantic surprises - rose petals on the bed, champagne, a gift basket with cheese and fruit, and a vase with roses. They also had very good security, with a staff person checking room cards before going up the elevators. Room service came 2x per day, one time to tidy up the room and again before evening to turn down the bed and leave chocolates. The room was VERY clean and well stocked with amenities. The shower had amazing water pressure and was always hot (and remained that way). The bed and bedding were very comfortable, and the free Wi fi in the rooms was also very much appreciated. I didn’t eat the food in the hotel, but I did think the room service menu looked great. The only potential limitation of this hotel is that they don’t have a lobby area. It is pretty much just a front desk with a restaurant and a bar (which we didn’t have time to try out). However, we did not need or require a lobby, so this did not bother us. In my opinion, this hotel is an excellent value and we would not hesitate to book reservations at the Bryant Park hotel again – they helped make our anniversary very memorable and we look forward to a return visit sometime soon.
