“Nice hotel with room for improvement”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Room was comfortable, though small, with lots of gizmos and gadgets. They included a TV in the bathroom mirror, a deluxe shower with shower heads coming at you from all angles (learning curve here), electronic maid service sign, and electric curtains.
Location in Chelsea District is great. A brand new full grocery store with reasonable prices is within a block. Subways aren't too far away. Within walking distance of Penn Station.
The two annoying negatives: no ice machine, so ice has to be ordered from the front desk & delivered to your room. I hate tipping for something like that. Also, it can all take way too much time. I tried for a half hour to get through to the front desk & finally gave up. The next time I approached the front desk in person & ice was delivered about a half hour later - way slow. Second negative: maid did not replenish the in-room coffee. Unfortunately, I didn't notice this until the next morning at 5am when I got up to catch the train. Very sad :-(
They have a nice bar off the lobby with live music & dancing if you're interested in that sort of thing - I used to be in younger days.
My wife & I really like this hotel. We've stayed here twice & will stay here again, but they're a little short of perfect on the small but important things.

Great location, reasonable rates. The rooms are on the small side, but they are clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. We spent a long weekend visiting family in the neighborhood and this hotel was perfect. Close to Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise from street and nightclub.

1. Hotel is located in a good area for restaurants and accessing the rest of the City.
2. Do not stay on the 3rd floor unless you want to hear the band all night
3. Hotel is in need of remodel, the rooms and public spaces are looking a bit tired.
4. Bed was comfortable and linens were good.
5. Alas hotels are now figuring out people hate paying for wifi and the Flatiron wifi is inclusive in your rate.
6. If the rate was below $200 I would stay here again, otherwise it is not worth the $

Room Tip: Don't stay on the third floor.

Our family of 4 spent the weekend in NYC and had a greatbexperience staying at the Flatiron. Staff were helpful and friendly, room was perfect as we're the views. Will be back for sure. Within walking distance of Eataly food gormat shop and Madison Park close by for the children to play in. There are a couple typical diners around for breakfast as well so location is good

This was a wonderful hotel! What a great location and excellent staff and service. We enjoyed the downstairs bar and entertainment. We didn't find it noisy at all! Loved our room and would definitely choose the flatiron hotel again!!!

This is an awesome hotel located just off Broadway. The rooms are incredible and super tech savy. When you walk in you are graced by oversized windows that allow a bright and luxurious room. Some other features include Wifi, an LCD TV, and an iPod charger/dock. This hotel has by far one of the coolest bathroom's I have ever been in...it has amenities like Swiss rainfall showers or Jacuzzi bathtubs and televisions in the bathroom mirror! How awesome is that!

I also highly recommend Toshi's Livingroom for meals. The food is really great with a great variety of cocktails and entertainment. Live music starts as early as 6 pm every night. I suggest this hotel for anyone looking for a fun time in New York City!

I liked this hotel, it was clean, brilliantly located and had wonderfully friendly staff. The décor was very good and the beds fantastically comfy. The owner Toshi has a concept of this hotel which is that it should be a centre of creativity in the area. However, this leads to bands playing every night which to be honest just got annoying, its all well and good a couple of nights a week but c'mon six! Also the bar did not open until 5pm which is not really brilliant after you've hoofed it around in 100 degree heat all day! The bar menu is severely limited. All in all the experience was pleasant but for what we paid we should not have to ask for a high level room and should not be made to feel that the lobby was basically out of bounds if we didn't want to be deafened. Its a good job there are three nice bars within easy walking distance.

Also, Mr Flatiron Hotel, please do not advertise so heavily around the rooftop terrace that isn't open to "normal" residents like us, only the fancy in crowd who get invited to parties. Its a good job trip advisor had pre-warned us or I would have been annoyed about that after the website does not really mention that fact, but does cover itself in lovely pictures of rooftop terraces.

In essence, if Toshi wants to run a hip music bar he should, but this is a hotel!

Room Tip: Specifically request a high level room
