Worked with the concierge for a week before traveling to the Royalton for a big anniversary weekend. Ordered flowers, arranged champagne and candles etc to be set up for our arrival. Got to the room and the flowers were in a box in the corner of the room. And NO champagne or candles. Apparently the concierge couldn't process the simple...

You know The Royalton is among the coolest hotels in the city—great bar, sleek rooms, even sleeker people. It turns out they also have a heart. For our big weekend in New York—my wife's birthday, visiting our daughter, seeing a show—I chose The Royalton for its midtown location and cool factor. When the staff learned it was my wife's birthday,...

Myself and my husband recently stayed at the royalton (feb 2013) for our honeymoon. On check in we had been upgraded from standard room to a superior king on the penthouse. After reading other reviews about the room I would definitely recommend the upgrade, although ours was free (much thanks to the hotel for this!), the room was huge especially...

The hotel is in an excellent location. Walk to Rockefeller Center, Broadway, Times Square, Bryant Park, MOMA, and more. The lobby is gorgeous. Staff is friendly and helpful. As many other reviews have stated, most of the good or great ends there. Hallways and rooms are dingy, not because of the color, but because they need refreshing. I actually like...

I give this hotel four stars because of its fabulous mid-town location, the bed is super comfortable, the room is quiet and the front desk staff and restaurant wait staff are courteous and helpful. We stayed during one of the busiest times in NYC, Christmas week, and our stay at the Royalton helped to make it enjoyable. One draw back...

Really good hotel in a great location, a short stroll to Grand Central Station and Times Square. Our room was huge, especially by NY standards, very quiet and well equipped. Whilst the hotel has a hip and trendy vibe this does not detract from it being a relaxing base in the city and the staff are a credit to this...

Our first visit to the Big Apple, made even more special by the staff at The Royalton. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was fantastic, with all the mod cons and cleaned daily. We couldn't of asked for more! Definitely going back.

The "lobby" - actually being mainly a bar and lounge gives you a good vibe for your stay. The coolest I have yet to visit. The room was big, clean, stylish and well maintained with bathroom also of nice size (premium). Few points for improvement: no wall mirror in room (three in bathroom though), internet not free in room (though...

Stayed at the Royalton hotel, New York in Sep 2012. It was a fantastic boutique hotel with a great funky bar downstairs in the lobby, which was packed on the first night we arrived.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Morgans commissioned Roman Williams, to re-create Royalton's legendary lobby. The design - simultaneously sophisticated and complex - juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast-bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls. ... more   less
