My family and I stayed at the Rex twice on our America trip - first in late December and then again in late January.
It was our first stop when we arrived in America after so many hours on the plane from Australia and it was just an amazing place to stay!
We had such great service, all the staff were so friendly and helpful and we just LOVED the bar!
The whole theme of the hotel is great - we even got a beautiful Christmas Tree made out of books! The bar is called The Library and books and bookshelves line the walls.
We had both a double room (two double beds) and a standard room (one queen bed) and both were great! It reminded us very much of some of the old worldy hotels in Europe and while the decor and rooms may not be modern and plush, they are comfortable and very cosy :)
We loved every aspect of our stay and the location was truly fantastic! Lori's down the road is a great diner and the short walk to Union Square meant we felt right in the mix of things all the time.
Definitely would 100% recommend!
