Great hotel, very old building with strange noises and slow elevators. Easy to get lost trying to find your room Would be great if they added hot breakfast instead of the $12 Continental offering The service fee should include the Continental breakfast

The location and rooms were nice. The amenities were lacking and a few of the front desk staff were not necessarily very friendly. The room was fairly quiet although there were some weird noises coming from the pipes that would wake us up.

I was a little worried at first from photos online, but was pleasantly surprised when I stayed at Luxe Life. Our room was clean, quiet and a very comfortable bed. I didn’t hear one city street noise at all. The only downside is if you’re lookin for a room with a view or even lookout, this is not it. But we didn’t mind as we were out all day in the city. It was nice to have a quiet, darker room. The bathroom is pretty nice, but small. But, things in NY tend to be that way. Again, cannot say enough about how comfortable the bed was. This spot was a great location as well. It’s so close to Herald Square and perfect midtown location. We scored free parking (on weekend) on the same street just a few blocks down. For the price, location and overall enjoyment, this is one of the places to stay. Also, with the resort fee, they give you Voss water bottles each day. Very pleased with accommodations and communication with the staff.

The Luxe Life Hotel is a great place to stay right in the heart of NYC. Easily assessible to tourist as well as business destinations. The hotel has nicely appointed rooms with new marble bathrooms and hardwood floors. They offer a great breakfast buffet in the morning and were just opening their new restaurant and lounge. It is definitely worth giving this hotel a try, you will Love It!!!
