“New Favorite NYC hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in the Directors Suite and loved everything about it. The decor, the incredible bathrooms with fantastic showers,the great service of the hotel staff.

We have stayed in Times Square at The W and would not return because of the mobs in Times Square. This location is only a block away that makes a world of difference. It is not crazy busy as is The W location.

The concierge staff including Juan and Bryan gave us great advice on restaurants and the front desk staff are wonderful including Elizabeth and Catalina.

Unlike some othe comments we found that this was the first time we never heard a siren or street noise in our NYC stays. This is our new favorite NYC hotel.

Although we have stayed in several hotels around Times Square this boutique hotel was a surprise.
Very comfortable and spacious rooms and it all looked very new .A small hotel which means personal treatment by staff.The only critical point is that the design of the hotel sometimes conflicts with the efficiency.All in all we know that when we return to New York this will be the hotel to stay.

This hotel is unbelievable. Location is perfect- a stones throw from Times Square. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was lovely. Lots of space in the room and the bathrooms were beautiful. Double sinks with a TV in the mirrors between them, heated toilet seat and a huge walk in rainfall shower. Every room has their own private butler. They took our champagne off us in the morning and chilled it for us all day and arranged for it to be back in our room in an ice bucket in the evening at a time of our choice. The Lambs Club bar was great. Not cheap but expected in NY hotels. The Lambs Club Restaurant was fantastic. Food was delicious. The staff make this hotel. They are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The only downside, which for our friends we were travelling with was a problem, was that even though you get free wifi throughout the hotel and in your room, it wasn't working at all during the 2nights/3 days we were there. They needed internet access for work and it did cause a few frustrating problems. There didn't seem to be any immediate rush to get this fixed either. It didn't bother us at all but for a business traveller, this could be a major problem. I would definitely stay back at this hotel without hesitation.By far, one of the most amazing hotels I've ever stayed in.

Dear Af1979,

Thank you for taking the time to share your valuable feedback from your stay at The Chatwal NY and we are glad to hear you that you enjoyed your time with us.

I apologize for the inconvenience that your friends experienced due to the internet. This rare occurrence was due to an issue with the service provider’s line outside the building, affecting many neighboring businesses and hotels. The service provider has since corrected the line and the internet is now at full speed.

We would welcome the opportunity to have you with us for a return visit. If there is anything I may be able to assist you with, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at lmiller@thechatwalny.com.

Sincerely,
Lance Miller

I brought a small group of international visitors to the hotel last year because I was looking for a luxury, boutique hotel with personal service and elegant accommodations. I had not heard of the Chatwal, but my SPG Plat contact suggested it and I am glad I followed her advice. All 6 guests enjoyed the stay.

The hotel is refined luxury. If you are looking for over the top style, this isn't the place. But, if you are looking for understated elegance and service... then you will be happy with the Chatwal.

As others have noted, the rooms are not large, but they are nicely appointed. I personally had a small room facing the interior, so it had a view of nothing... but it was quiet, peacful, and I got a great night sleep.

The bathrooms are very large and well appointed.

We also used the Stanford White Studio for our meeting space. It worked very well - a beautiful lounge / library setting for a very productive 3 day meeting.

The hotel is very intimate. With a small lobby, unassuming entrance, and under 100 rooms, it was a big contrast with Times Square.

I enjoyed the hotel so much that I am bringing my family later this week... I will update my report if my impressions change.

Room Tip: If you like peace and quite, ask for a room on a high floor and / or facing the inside.

I've stayed in all 5 stars in NYC expect the St. Regis. If you prefer a top notch boutique as opposed to a hotel with a 50,000 sq foot lobby designed to impress tourists not staying at your hotel (i.e. The Plaza), then I suggest you strongly consider the Chatwal. Private; great design (especially if you appreciate classic art deco). Stunning rooms. The latest technology in rooms. Best bathrooms in NYC. Great location, especially for Broadway and 5th Ave. shopping. Classic restaurant. Exceptional service. Probably the best hotel in NYC, not just among boutiques. I'm including the 4 Seasons, Mandarin, Ritz Central Park, etc. The only negative is if you must have a great NYC view, it does not have that.

Room Tip: Terrace rooms are available if so desired.

I'll try not to duplicate all the reviews here re: location, etc. I would be remiss if I didn't say that the room was lovely and the bath was exquisite. Check ahead if your room has one and if so, bring a candle, some bubble bath and block off some time for a nice leisurely soak. Heaven!

What sets this Starwood property apart however (my husband is Lifetime Platinum so we have been blessed to stay at many properties) are the little things. The service from someone opening the door, to the kind acknowledgment from the front desk as you walk by, to the extremely friendly staff who delivered my coffee in the morning was outstanding. I awoke one morning to an issue that had to be resolved ASAP with notarized papers and earliest FedEx next day delivery. In a total panic, I called the concierge and within the hour it was all done, right from the concierge desk. One call and they saved my day. Now THAT is service and what sets a property like this apart from others in NYC.

We look forward to our next trip and without a doubt, our destination of choice will be The Chatwal. My very highest recommendation.

This hotel is tucked away in a fantastic location, just minutes from Time Square, and from the minute you arrive you feel that you are truly home. Every single member of staff is friendly, helpful and professional. We stayed in a suite that was absolutely stunning and luxurious. The bed was so comfortable and inviting after a busy day and the bathroom and products were amazing. They have thought of everything and there are even umbrellas available for you to take with you on a rainy day. The concierge was superb and every one of his restaurant recommendations were spot on! I cannot wait to return!! Worth every penny!
