Exclusive from the very start, the Royalton began as upscale residences overlooking 43rd and 44th Streets before becoming the sophisticated boutique hotel it is today. A canvas showcasing the work of well-known design firm Roman and Williams, the Royalton plays with light and texture to create an intimate and urbane mood from the moment you walk through the door, while Charlotte Macau’s attention to detail in our luxury rooms offer a sleek and timeless style with maximum comfort.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Royalton New York garners mixed reviews, with some guests enjoying spacious, pristine rooms, while others criticize them for neglect and a lack of amenities. Though the hotel's location is favored for its proximity to NYC attractions, the atmosphere is often described as outdated with a charm that has faded over time. Service quality appears to vary, with instances of both commendation and disappointment. Amenities receive a nod for room cleanliness but are otherwise considered lacking. Furthermore, the hotel's value proposition is frequently questioned due to perceived high costs and dated offerings.

Perfect location for a stay in midtown Manhattan. The room was clean, tidy and the bed is the comfiest i've ever slept on (to the point i've actually emailed them to find out what make it was). The staff were all very friendly and helpful too. The lobby looks great and is very comfortable to hang out in but unfortunately the bar has been closed since covid. If the bar in the lobby had been open I'd probably have given it 5 out of 5.

Great location, staff super friendly, spotlessly clean with room serviced before 12pm each day pretty much. I will definitely come back here, highly recommended! Check In was simple, wifi very quick and the porter service excellent too.

The hotel had great accommodations and the bed was super comfortable. It was right within walking distance of all main sights in New York. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with answers to questions.

The room was tiny, the window faced a concrete wall, and the front desk had the friendliness of a character in a Hunter S Thompson story that just ran out of drugs. You get no natural light, there's no way to turn any lights on from the entrance, and even when all the room lights are on, it still feels like you're in a bomb shelter. The corridors are narrow, and there's room in the lift for exactly two people. One if you have any luggage to speak of. Come to think of it, it's a good thing that there aren't bellhops, because they'd never be able to fit one of those trolleys in the lift. Answering how this hotel got 4 stars on Tripadvisor might earn me a millenium prize. This hotel would feel right at home as a setting in Disco Elysium. The only reason it doesn't get one star is because I've been shot at a hotel once.

This hotel was everything that we needed for a quick visit to the city. The location was perfect, and we were able to Walk to 5th Ave, Bryant Park, Times Square, & Central Park. The hotel staff were very helpful, they held our luggage after check out for us and provided directions. Our room was actually pretty large with a sitting area, makeup/dressing area added. It was an older hotel, so the only con were the elevators were very small & shaky.

The location was great. The service was great. But other than the lobby the hotel was a disappointment. The rooms were dated and didn't have an upgraded feel. We stayed in the king loft and other than the tub, it needed attention. I thought at the price - $750 per night it would be more plush and elegant. Similar to the lobby. I won't stay there again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else.

I almost don’t want to write a review because I don’t want everyone to stay there and the prices to go up! But I promised the staff I would, because it was just that wonderful. We absolutely loved staying here. The hotel was stunning, the room was fantastic, the staff was just incredible. We inquired why they hadn’t re-opened up the bar area because the lobby is just so absolutely stunning with how it’s set up and the decor and furnishings that you could tell it was an absolutely fun, fabulous happening place before Covid. Apparently that was a correct statement because the staff said it was THE place to be. When the hotel was sold, the previous owners took their liquor license with them, and sadly, the hotel is unable to obtain another one for now. What a shame because it’s stunning, stunning. stunning. The room was Great, we stayed in a basic standard room with a king size bed, and there was plenty of closet space, luggage rack, iron, mini fridge, little sitting area, and a large bathroom with toiletries. It was perfect for us. We loved it. The bed was so comfortable. The location you can’t beat as it’s just a couple of blocks from Times Square and a couple of blocks from Grand Central Station. The staff was absolutely incredible. If you needed anything they brought it for example, ice or extra towels or extra toiletries. You just had to ask and they were there within seconds. We knew that there wasn’t coffee in the room or in the lobby ahead of time but again, walk out the door and within 15 to 20 feet there’s coffee and food all over the place so don’t worry about that. You will not starve in New York! We would absolutely stay there again. Oh, one more thing, we were there, the first three nights of Hanukkah, and they had an electric menorah in the lobby that they let me light each night! With everything going on in the world right now, the fact that they let me do that, made a huge impact on me! They were so gracious and were total class acts. I’m adding the only pictures we took at the hotel, in case people are wondering that’s weird why are there no pictures of the actual hotel… Honestly, we totally dropped the ball. We have 1 million pictures of Times Square and things all over New York and yet we forgot to take pictures of the actual hotel so trust me when I tell you it really is beautiful!

The room was a lot bigger than most in NYC at this price point, beds were comfy & clean and the location for access to Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, etc can’t be beat … BUT this place is depressing. It’s great if you only plan on sleeping there. Throughout the early 2010s, I remember loving the Royalton lobby for happy hours etc — a known spot for cozy meetups in front of fireplaces with great cocktails. Now some of that beautiful lobby furniture is ripped and it’s a total ghost town. No food despite a beautiful (closed) restaurant one site. No coffee AT ALL!!! Just bottled water at check in. This means when your kids wake up hungry at 6:30 in the AM, you walk down the street in semi darkness to get coffee & muffins. The rooms & hallways are cute and retro but in serious disrepair. Gross carpet & cracked stone in the room, ancient radiator, ancient outlets. No detail in the room appears to have been updated since about 1985. For one night it was a fine stay — and beds were great! But it was just very odd and felt kinda creepy. There were also some strange relics in the bathroom that must’ve been chic back in the ‘80s (see pic). Decent price, awesome location, but needs an overhaul, including serious TLC for the lobby plus food & COFFEE to make this place feel like a quality midtown hotel.
