“Great Stay in NYC during the Blizzard 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We are just leaving the Omni Berkshire in Midtown, we are actually at the airport. I thought I would leave our review before we are even home, because I am so impressed with the hotel staff. The Berkshire is at a great location (close to the subway, Central Park, and Rockefeller Center), and the staff are awesome. Probably some of the nicest hotel staff that I have ever met. They were very attentive and would go out of their way to help us or make our stay more comfortable. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to NYC. If you are not a Omni Select Gold member, sign up before your trip (its free) and you get free WIFI, coffee, soda, or milk (your choice) delivered in the morning, plus extra perks.

For my Christmas present my husband booked a trip back to NYC and we stayed at our favorite hotel, the Omni. The best value for the location by far! Right in between 5th Avenue and Madison Avenue shopping and sight seeing. Also close to Central Park and subways. The first week of January is the BEST time to visit NYC for lower prices and the crowds are much smaller since New Years and Christmas is over. You still get to enjoy the decorations as they're still up! Can't wait to come back!

I think is the best hotel to stay. The treatmente was excelent. We subscrived a fidelity program and we has free drink every morning, free newspapper, free wifi...
In the atrium we had apples to take every day.
The location was the best, near Rockfeller and Trump Tower. The metro was in the oposite street.
I adore this hotel. I will stay there in my next trips to NY for sure!

Great location. Close to theatre district, restaurants, subway, and Fifth Avenue shopping. Rooms are spacious and well appointed for New York. This is an older hotel with lots of charm and excellent service.

In terms of location and service, this is the best option of the following properties I have stayed at in the area (Benjamin, Grand Hyatt, and W on lexington and the Waldorf). Very nice service. Rooms are not richly appointed like a 5* but it is a solid 4* hotel and better service than comperables - which are very tired and this hotel is not. Would stay here again and as a Omni member, benefits are very nice to have even at the lowest level. I can not say enough about the loyalty program for even the lowest members. We had a nice large room overlooking 52nd.

The location can not be beet.

Not related to the hotel but watch out for the change scam at Isadora's cafe across the street. What a bunch of jerks. Give a 50, person checks to make sure it is a fifty and gives change by pulling a 20 and then flip over and give you change as if you gave a 20 - nice, 8 bucks in change versus 38. Very very slick but I am not stupid. Sure, this can happen anywhere which is why I check but please.

If you need to stay in midtown, this is a great hotel with excellent service. Can be hard to get in during the normal peak times...and forget it if the UN is in session since country reps seem to like this place. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are marble...bathrooms need just a little touchup, but clean. Service is great and staff are awesome. Connected to the hotel is Fireside Grill...great food. Bar service is outstanding.

We've chosen the hotel primarily because of it's location, which is pretty perfect.
The rooms are quite big but these with a street view can be quite loud. Except that I got a pretty hard cold due to the clima control, the hotel was a good choice, even though I would choose a different one in the same price range...
