This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Staying at The Whitby for a family visit was pure pleasure. Our junior terrace suite was one of the nicer rooms we've stayed in of late. While the hotel's location in the middle of the block of 56th between 5th and 6th Avenues is unremarkable, the peaceful view from the café table on our 15th-floor corner terrace made us feel as though we were the only people around. The floor-to-ceiling windows made our smallish suite feel spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable and the walk-in closet was possibly the largest we have seen in Manhattan. We enjoyed the whimsical colorful artworks displayed throughout the hotel as well as the clusters of straw baskets hanging above the sunny bar. Drinks and snacks at the bar were very tasty and service was pleasant and friendly. All of the staff members were warm and helpful. In sum, we enjoyed everything about our stay here and would highly recommend it.

We stayed for 6 nights. Very good location. The interior design, choice of surface materials is fabulous, exciting, funny and interesting. The room has a fantastic headboard and the bathroom is really comfortable with a big shower. Really nice breakfast menu during the week sometimes too busy with business meetings. Be careful when you ask the concierge for activities. We reserved a bike ride over Brooklyn bridges. which was confirmed for 10am 4th June by Brooklyn Giro Bicycle Tours. Arrived at the meeting point in Brooklyn after a 45 min Uber ride...The meeting point was in a storage warehouse in on of Brooklyn most broken neighbourhoods. Inside the storage warehouse finally we found a door with a sticker on for the bicycle company. But door was padlocked no one there....Called the concierge after some time he answered that they had received a change of time for the the bike trip it was now going to depart 12 am. We could not wait there for 2 hours due to other commitments so another Uber ride 45 min back.

I have always been a fan of the Firmdale Hotels and I finally got the chance to stay in one. I arrived early in the morning and got an early check-in with an upgrade to junior suite. The lobby and restaurant were amazing, full of colors and details. A combination of classic British design with the modern colorful touch. The room was stunning, very clean and full of details. Each room in the hotel has its own design but you can tell they have the same spirit, especially with the signature mannequin in each. The bed was extremely comfortable. I asked for a steaming iron and a coffee machine and got what I needed in no time. The hotel manager sent a personalized welcome note with a small gift. The receptionist and concierge were so helpful and kind, I was able to plan my schedule efficiently to cover most of the places I had in mind because of their advice. The location was so convenient a couple of minutes walk to 5th Avenue and close to most of the attractions - walking distance. The price was a bit high but worth it.
