When visiting NYC, we continue to choose the Hotel Wales for its reliability. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff is always professional, friendly, caring - a real asset for this charming boutique hotel on the Upper East Side. We will return again.

The room we had did not have a door, just a doorway between the living room and bedroom. They are two distinct and separate rooms, just no door to close. If you have someone sleeping on the sofa bed, there won’t be privacy.
