“Amazing sleep!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

Had a brilliant stay at this hotel with my family. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. A bulb went in our bedroom and they fixed it that day, despite us saying there was no rush. I would highly recommend this hotel, however, it is very dark. The lobby and bar area are lighted extremely dimly, which I could imagine annoying a few people. Oh, and I've never slept so well in my life! Lovely pillows, no noise and very dark when the curtains were pulled. Making for a very happy Beth :)

I really liked this hotel. We came on a weekend to see a show and just go out to eat and have general fun. The location is very good, easy to walk to subway stations, Times Square, Hells Kitchen, 5th Ave, etc.

Best surprise is the noise level is very low. We stayed on the 44th street side, not sure how the 43rd street side was. The beds are great and we really slept well.

I was happy to pay up and get a "loft suite" as they describe it. Very large for NYC, but an average size room if you have never been to New York. The round huge tub and shower is really cool, and very romantic. The lobby bars are cosy and quite, great for a couple date. I would like to come back to this hotel.

The continental breakfast is nothing to write home about, but if you just need an AM snack it will do. Really nice people on staff from housekeeping to front desk.

Room Tip: The 44th street facing rooms are much more quiet than most NYC hotels. The loft suite has a really...

What a great review! I am so pleased that you enjoyed our great location with easy access to many great points of interest in New York City…such as Times Square, Grand Central, and Fifth Avenue. It is always great to read when someone enjoys our central location but also appreciates the quiet rooms.

I am glad you enjoyed the Loft Suite and all the space that it affords, as well as our unique disco tubs. Hopefully, we will be able to welcome you back soon!

Loved everything about this hotel, the location, the staff, the ambience, the room, everything. Location was suberb, staff attentive and efficient. The hotel was truly boutique which added to the ambience of bing in the Big Apple and location was ideal. I have always aimed for the Time Square area but this was close enough to be hand yet also a shorty distance to sights such as 5th Ave, Grand Central, Rockafeller Plaza and Central Park. If I can still afford to stay here once word of this superb property gets out I will definately be back

Room Tip: All the rooms were different. Standard rooms were small but not unusual for New York

Wow! Thank you for your fabulous comments. Royalton is, indeed, centrally located in midtown, within easy walking distance of Grand Central, fantastic shopping on Fifth Avenue, and Times Square. We love our boutique feel where you can relax after a day out in our fantastic lobby and rest in one our great rooms. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time you are in New York.

I have stayed at the Royalton on numerous occasions while in New York city for pleasure and have always been impressed favorably. The rooms are large by New York standards with wifi, minibar and beautiful bathrooms (shower only). I will always stay there when I can get a good room rate on one of the travel websites. And the large lobby is very nice with numerous sunken seating areas where you can order from the bar.

Thank you for your great review. One of the great features of Royalton is our generous lobby where you can decompress after a long day of work or being out and about town. We hope to see you again on your next visit!

OMG I went here with my 2 daughters , 14/16 , for a girls week away and we spent the most wonderful time here. Yes the hotel bar/foyer is noisy but hell it's NY. Once in our room we heard nothing. Yes the bathroom and shower where above and beyond. The cleanliness great. . All the staff where incredible. The location is great. But just the personal service was incrediblec Wow :) I will be back.

Room Tip: The wifi was $10 a night but it was quick and reliable.

My wife and I thought we would try a boutique style hotel on our latest New York City stay. We've stayed many different places in the big Apple. Mostly larger chain Times Square locations such as the Hilton and the Marriott. We tried the Royalton. Overall, the experience was "just okay". The hotel bar was not that welcoming and the rooms were slightly overpriced. The service was hit and miss. Sometimes stellar and sometimes laissez faire. The location is great though. We are frequent New York visitors (probably two weekends a year) and we might try boutique style again, but unless the deal is overwhelming, we will pass on the Royalton and try something else. There are just too many options to return to an average place in New York City.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I am sorry that you were not fond of the style of the hotel. I notice that you stayed in December of last year when, because the city is busy the bar and lounge is busy too. While we feel it gives the whole hotel a great vibe we do understand that it Is not to everyone’s taste. I do hope that if you do consider staying at a boutique hotel again in the future that you will give us another try.

Recently stayed at this stylish hotel on our Honeymoon. The location is superb as everything is within walking distance, for example Time Square only 5-10 minutes away. The service was also excellent and the hotel is very clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had been given an upgrade to a larger suite and were not disappointed. One thing you need to be aware of is the cost of drinks at the bar (but this is New York!) Our only draw back was the noise of the air conditioning unit in our suite which we had to turn off during the night (in the bedroom area). Overall we had a wonderful time in this very stylish hotel and would gladly recommend it to anyone going over for a short stay.

Room Tip: Higher floors are much quieter.
