We were three sisters and our mum travelling to New York for 14 days.
We had rooms 811 and 1001.

Barely any rooom in our room. Very difficult finding space for the suitcase. But the worst was the absence of windows both in the bedroom and the bathroom, we had to guess at the weather every day! When I cmplained to the woman at the...More

From style to service, it's wonderful to hear we met your needs at Life Hotel. We also appreciate the suggestion about a separate entrance and will keep it in mind for future improvements. Join us again the next time you travel to NYC!

Loved the boutique feel of the hotel. Very comfortable bed, good bathroom. Location is excellent for walking to many areas. Did eat in the restaurant I would recommend it.
AC is very noisy but this drowns out the street noise so was fine.

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.

We were able to open (with some physical strength) the bathroom window, yet didn't even try to open the main bedroom window since the weight of the smaller bathroom window was difficult enough. I imagine it would definitely open though, with some strength applied. We frequently left the AC unit on the "FAN" setting, since that way it just blew in air from outside - I also have issues with constant AC. Also, when we had the bathroom window open, it really wasn't loud at all (we were situated in a room w/ windows facing into an alley, not the street), considering the Midtown location.
