I was very happy with my two-night stay at the Royalton Hotel. While I probably wouldn't pay full price for these rooms, they were running a special that brought the price (before taxes) below $300 a night, which placed it well below the price of other hotels in the area. Only 2 blocks away from Times Square, the location was perfect for my needs.
The staff was extremely friendly. I asked whether they had a complimentary room upgrade available, and they gave me a lovely large, inward-facing room. There was no street noise (although the air conditioning unit was rather loud). When I returned back to the hotel my first day there, they had left a complimentary fruit plate, a large bottle of water, and a hand-written note welcoming me on my first stay. The staff cheerily hailed a cab for me and offered more free water when I returned to the hotel tired after a long day at work.
The bathroom was very comfortable, with a lovely shower (I actually skipped going out for meals so that I could take long, luxurious showers). The water pressure was great, as was the amount of hot water. And they actually put out a candle and matches so that guests could enjoy a candle-lit shower with the lights dimmed.
The room was lovely. The bed wasn't quite the level of a Heavenly Bed, but it was just fine.
Although I didn't have time to visit the bar or restaurant, they seemed like they'd be fun. The lobby decor was elegant, and I loved the fireplaces.
I didn't like the $10 a day fee for wireless internet, but the speed was good and the service didn't give me any problems while I was there.
This is definitely a place I'd enjoy returning, if I can find good deals on the rate.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Morgans commissioned Roman Williams, to re-create Royalton's legendary lobby. The design - simultaneously sophisticated and complex - juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast-bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls. ... more less
