A lovely one bedroom suite, with full kitchen facilities, maid service, concierge, doorman, the works...for about the price of a nice hotel room? In one of the best locations in N.Y. (at the crossroads of Columbus Ave., Broadway and 66th Street)? No way? Could be the most real deal in the city. Housekeeping is immaculate. Neutral, contemporary furnishings, fluffy duvet, big soft towels, good toiletries, everything you'd find in upscale 4 star (or many 5-star) properties. Also 2-bedroom suites for families or friends...and pets are welcome. The rooms are small, but efficient and the quality is there. Only hotel service missing is a restaurant on site. Instead, you get to live like real New Yorkers, as a wonderful, upscale deli/bakery delivers 24/7. In N.Y. you can get anything just about anything delivered, from one bagel to a week of groceries, a pound of caviar or Cuban/Asian/Argentinian-fusion cuisine. It's faster than room service in most hotels and your full refrigerator will hold the leftovers. Subway a half block away takes you in three stops to Times Square. Lincoln Center is almost next door and Central Park is a two block walk. I've stayed at the Plaza, the Mandarin, the Pierre, the St. Regis, etc., as well as countless 4 star properties and nothing can beat this for value. If you want butler service, this isn't for you. No snob appeal or bragging rights, but a lot of bang for the buck.

Thank you so much!!! I feel I can barely add anything to this wonderful review; you've said it all. Besides which, an endorsement from a guest is so much more meaningful for everyone reading these reviews.

Hope to see you again soon and if you have a pound of caviar in your fridge, I may be knocking on your door!

Kind regards,

DR

The Phillips Club is so very convenient....Convenient location, in the middle of so much to do; convenient for transportation....there is subway station half a block away and the bus through Central Park over to the Eastside is one block away....and if you must take a taxi, on Broadway there are always plenty to be had.....Convenient, comfortable rooms.....I usually stay in a 'studio'....it is large by any hotel standard much less NY....it has a full kitchen which is great for getting breakfast while you are dressing....it has a very comfortable bed with nice linens, a large flat screen TV with really good cable, a loveseat, table and chair for lounging, a table and chairs for eating, tons of closet space, and the only (mild) let down, a small bathroom....nice but nothing to rave about....the staff is very nice and friendly...the building well maintained....ever since finding the Phillips Club, I have stayed nowhere else in NY.....

Thank you for your kind review! It's true!!! We're in the center of everything! When I first started here, I was astounded at the size and comfort of the rooms - more like apartments. The smallest space here at The Phillips Club is twice the size of an average hotel room. The kitchens make it so easy to have breakfast and lounge for a while before hitting the town. It does feel like you are living like a New Yorker (although a lot of NY apartments are actually smaller).

Hope to see you soon!

DR

I always stay at the Phillips Club. The location is excellent. You have many stores, restaurants, movie houses, a subway station and the Lincoln Center accross the street. Also, there is a Gourmet Garage adjacent to the hotel! Service is impeccable and the staff is very homey friendly. It is pet friendly and each floor has a lounge. This is a real gem of a place. I'd wish there would be more like this!

Thank you for your kind review! It is indeed a gem and is indeed unique! I have been in the Industry many years and have never encountered anything like The Phillips Club. The location, size of rooms, full kitchens, peaceful environment, great service - I can go on and on. I am so happy I was fortunate to be selected to run The Phillips Club!

I hope you will return soon.

Kind regards,

While mainly an extended stay hotel, you can also do shorter stays here. They all come with a kitchen, which saves a LOT of money while in NYC. The staff is lovely and the place great. Free laundry machines on every floor so you can under pack and wash. They don't have room service or other hotel like amenities, but you are literally across the street from the subway, and lincoln center, and I could not imagine staying anywhere else. I have also stayed at the Trump which I found laughable in terms of how nasty the employees are. And the STandard downtown, while gorgeous views, have rooms so small they are laughable.

I like secrets but thank you for getting the word out about The Phillips Club! Even a Studio here is larger than most hotel Suites! We don't tolerate 'rude or nasty'. We are here to serve and do so with a smile and we genuinely appreciate our guests. You have selected us and we must live up to your expectations!

Thank you and hope to see you again soon!

I love everything about this place. The location is great, (just two locks from Lincoln Center) All around are excellent cafes, pizzerias, grocery stores and terrific shopping. The rooms vary in size from studios to two bedroom units but each one is spacious, modern and well appointed. You could easily stay for a week or two and feel like you are home. You can access private storage and leave what you want behind for use upon your next visit.. The doormen are professional and the front desk will accept deliveries for you and place the in your room when you are out. Nice in room amenities such as a music system, Sat TV, and twice daily housekeeping. The staff is top notch and he rooms are as nice as anything. Their is 24 hour room service from 3 local eateries and they deliver good food, quickly!

Room Tip: If possible try and get the street view.

Thank you so much for your kind review! The Phillips Club is unique in that it is partly Fractional Ownership entity and partly a Hotel as well. It is by far the best way to own a piece of New York without committing to an expensive condo or coop model. It is also a hotel offering the largest rooms in NYC and one of the best neighborhoods!

Hope to see you soon!

In planning for my recent NYC trip with three friends, the Phillips Club did not show up in my hotel searches. I wasn't even aware of it until a friend made a recommendation. I'm glad we ended up staying there! The apartment-style room (with kitchen and living room) provided plenty of space. The decor is classy and everything seemed to be of fairly good quality, though some things were showing wear & tear. I wasn't expecting much from the pull-out bed in the living room, but the one in this room was just awful. Hotel staff was generally helpful, though most were not especially friendly nor did they go out of their way to ensure a pleasant visit. What I liked most about the Phillips Club were the quiet environment & upscale residential feel... and, above all, the fantastic W 66th Street location.

Thank you for your Review! Since your review was written in 2011, we have undergone quite a renovation and if you return (which we hope you will soon), you will find many wonderful changes. The Phillips Club is unique in that rooms are more like Suites and have full kitchens. The location is absolutely superb (and this from someone who came from Midtown). I wish I had started my career here!

Hope to see you soon!

I just love staying at the Phillips Club. The location is wonderful. Bus pick up right outside the door, subway 100 feet, grocery store next door, spa next door, health club across the street. What more can you ask for. I have been to NYC many times before and this is the best location by far. Close to everything and easy access. You will enjoy.

Truly! What more can you ask for? Thank you for your wonderful review. You mentioned most everything. I would add that the size of the rooms is truly a plus. Even if one is on his / her own, it is nice to feel like you are in an apartment and not a small hotel room.
