“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

There is no more romantic destination in NY than this gem on the Upper West Side. The hospitality was first class and the lodging (stayed at the Spa Suite) must be seen to be believed. Additionally, the complimentary snacks and beverages were the proverbial cherry on top! On a scale of 1-10, I give this place a...1 Billion =)

Room Tip: Spa suite or bust

We arrived here on a romantic break. To be true we never been so spoiled ever. The rooms are fabulous. Breakfast in bed exactly as it should be. The afternoon tea is like a fairy tail come true. I would love to have this mini suite as my home :)))

We visited this hotel for a short honeymoon after our marriage based on the excellent reviews we had seen. They are all true!! This place was amazing. We had the library suite, a mini-apartment of about 800 sq feet with a lovely sitting area, kitchen and breakfast area and bedroom. It was like being in our own pied a terre. The location is very convenient to transportation, restaurants and entertainment. There are take-out places in the area that will deliver amazing food. The hoteliers provided us with a bottle of wine in the mini-fridge and, when we had finished the first, we asked for and received a second! Both wonderful whites. They had "spa type" robes for our use. Every day we had a new quiche in our fridge to warm up in the microwave. We also had croissants, bagels and pastry -- plus for Valentine's Day an entire Valentine's cake. It looked great and tasted wonderful! Quality all around.

We were so impressed we immediately booked our first anniversary trip back in 2015 -- to the Spa Suite (you have to see the website to believe it). My recommendation -- for a romantic place to be with your partner or spouse, it would be hard to find a place with so many positives for those who like city life, entertainment, restaurants, etc.

Room Tip: The Library Suite is very nice as it has skylights to brighten the room during the day. We're l...

My wife and I found this exquisite hotel back in 1996. It is truly a hidden gem on a quite street in the middle of New York City. This is truly a great place to escape to in the city. We were lucky enought to visit several times in the 90's and had not had the chance to get back in almost 15 years. Well, even after 15 years this place has maintained it's very high level of quality, decor, service and ambiance. We will be going back again very soon. Elyn and the staff are top notch and provide everything you'll need to have the best stay anywhere in New York.

My husband doesn't enjoy traveling and in particular dislikes large hotels with small elevators. When we were planning our trip to New York this time, he really wanted to try the Inn New York for its privacy. We arrived very late in the evening to this brownstone with no sign on a quiet street. A kind lady greeted us, insisted on hauling our bags up the one flight of stairs to the Spa Suite, the only room on the second floor. After that, we never saw a soul coming or going. You are given your own set of keys to the brownstone and from that point on, it is like it is your own flat. I would describe the interior of the Spa Suite as a bit funky. There is a long, narrow kitchen with gas burners, toaster oven, dishwasher, plates and pots and pans. The frig is stocked with milk, juice, water and ice. There are numerous goodies around including sweets and fresh fruit, all part of the deal. The "spa" area is a large bathroom with a tub so huge it has a faucet on each side. It is quite shallow though so you have to slide down to get all wet. It has a small sauna and a nice shower. The bed was very comfortable with lovely linens and a joy to crawl into after a long, cold day and night in the city. We found the suite to have a cluttered feel due to the number of books and accessories in every nook and cranny and it could be a little overwhelming. When we called each day to let them know we were going out and the room could be cleaned, they seemed concerned that we weren't eating the sweets and wanted to know what we would enjoy instead. The room rate was very expensive although there were absolutely no extras but considering that, we were a little disappointed in a few things such as the toilet was very temperamental and even after we reported it, no improvement. The bathroom doesn't have an exhaust system. And the shower was a bit leaky and jerryrigged with tin foil in a few spots. The bathroom sink didn't drain very well either. These were merely annoyances but for the price, they seemed noticeable for sure. Be aware that you could stay in a pretty fabulous hotel for what you pay at the Inn, but no hotel can duplicate the homey feel and special care of the Inn New York. It almost feels like staying at your aunt's place in the city while she is in Europe. We would definitely come back.

Room Tip: The Spa Suite is the only room that has a king size bed.

I recently stayed here in the opera suite with my brother while we attended several shows at the Met (which it is super close to) and visited other attractions in NYC. It was so much better than staying in some generic hotel. It really added to our NYC experience. The staff is very attentive to your needs. It was so nice to come back after a long day of touring to the cozy and beautiful suite. The suite was very clean and there were no bedbugs (a big problem in NYC).

This was a very private and very nice Inn. Great location. Peaceful surroundings in NYC. I would recommend to anyone who wants privacy will staying in NYC. Good amenities. Stayed in Library suite that has complete kitchen good for breakfast and coffee. Lots of good food stocked daily. And at the end of the trip washed all our clothes the evening before departure. Owners met us at arrival. The cleaning staff is excellent!!!!! If you want total privacy this is the place!!
