To say that good things come in small packages is an understatement when examining The Franklin Hotel. Surprisingly spacious with tastefully bright and vibrant room decor adorn each Franklin room, each adding its own little flare. Just a few minutes walk to the subway, but there is also plently to do write around the hotel itself. I was in New York on business at the time, and can safely say this is where I'll return too next month on my next NY trip. A+++++

We stayed at The Franklin 12/18/21- 12/22/21 and had a great stay. The rooms were clean, beds were very comfortable and the staff were super friendly. The rooms are small because it’s an older building but we didn’t spend much time in our room so it was fine for us. The location is GREAT- wonderful deli’s, bagel shops, Central Park and subway stops close by. Also- one evening we were able to play board games downstairs in the cafe area-. Complimentary espresso in the morning that was great- but if you want Starbucks it’s on the same block. We will stay here again!

A rare boutique hotel on the upper east side Voco, while small in size manages to fit in everything one would want The staff is exceptional!!!! IGH is lucky to have them. They go out of their way to make you comfortable Cappuccino is offered when you arrive , but sadly not decaf Rooms are small, as are the bathrooms, but have everything you need We had the largest king size bedded room and admittedly it was tight Perfect for a couple though The large TV was great as was the bedding Location could not be better Parking is available right next door, and surprisingly reasonable If you go knowing it is compact you will certainly enjoy your stay

This is my second time at the Franklin. This boutique hotel is a like an oasis in the howling desert of New York City. It's amazing how you can walk out the beautiful hotel lobby and still feel privacy. It's only a quick train ride to midtown. Took us less than 20 minutes to get from the door of the hotel to the St. James Theatre. The rooms are comfy cozy. The bathrooms are very cool. The staff is still incredibly friendly (all masked for all our safety). I'd recommend this boutique oasis to anyone who wants a convenient, quiet evening after a night out on the town.
