Great little hotel in beautiful area of New York. Staff are very friendly, great breakfasts, all day coffee and cakes and the best touch, wine and cheese evenings accompanied by pianist, so civilised. If you chose this as your hotel you're in for a treat

Great hotel, great location. Room was very comfortable. I will say the shower is in a bathtub which is rather small and slippery. The side of the tub are on a slant so not a lot of flat standing area. Need to be aware. I did slip.... Convenient to everything. Not too crowded for Manhattan .. Hotel offers a great... More

Friendly staff. Wine and cheese offering in the evening. Small breakfast in the morning. Rooms are average size but nicely done. Bed was very comfortable. Some street noise. Would ask for the highest floor possible. Good value in a very pricey market. Would certainly return.

This hotel is nothing short of amazing. From the warm welcome and helpful JR on the front desk( very helpful as my friend's case didn't arrive so they showered us with toiletries etc) to the beautiful room. I had such high hopes reading other reviews so expected to be disappointed but I wasn't . We had a huge room each... More

My mom and I stayed here for a mother daughter weekend in NYC and absolutely loved it! The staff is fantastic and extremely helpful and we stayed in a room with a balcony that overlooked Park Ave! It was so fun to have a balcony while staying in NYC which is very rare! But the best parts are the included... More

Our room had a great view on the 12th floor with a balcony. Our room was clean and spacious with a mini bar and a large... More

Stayed second week of September 2,016. King Size room with a balcony facing Park Avenue South. Really appreciated the complimentary breakfast in the morning, wine and cheese receptions in the evening (including Gluten Free options), and Espresso and Cappuccinos available for guests all day long. Metro stations across the street and about 200 feet north, depending where you are going.... More

This is a wonderful boutique hotel. The staff was amazing and the rooms are tastefully decorated and clean. Continental breakfast is included as is wine and cheese in the evening. There is a beautiful rooftop bar that was unusually quiet during our stay. The noise level is very low; we were on the third floor and did not hear any... More

The hotel was very clean and well appointed...Loved the extra amenities like the wine and cheese from 5-7 pm, the generous breakfast and the delicious chocolate with turndown. Most impressive, however, was the staff. From recommendations, reservations and a genuine desire to be of service in any way possible, they were top notch. We loved the feeling each night of...
