“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stayed for 5 nights and everything from service to food was amazing. Great location with an easy walk to anywhere in Manhattan. Very central. When you walk in you are greeted with super friendly and helpful check in staff. They offer advice on anything that your little heart wishes to do whilst in NY. The bathroom shower was insane with water coming from every different angle and the bed was super super comfy. We went to breakfast every morning in the hotel as the atmosphere, food and coffee were all excellent so why go elsewhere.

Just accross from the New York Public Library (which deserves a visit!) and a few blocks away from the Grand Central Station (try the Oyster Bar there), this hotel has a perfect location in middle Manhattan. We stayed in a very confortable and modern loft. Everything was very clean and the bed itself was great! The minibar content was complimentary, except for the alcoholic beaverages. The staff was really kind with us, and the check-in/check-out processes were surprisingly fast. Next time in NYC this is a place to be considered!

Very modern decor, great location. We had one of the suites with a little balcony. Bathroom was great but I wish they would have a soaking tub instead of a huge shower. After walking in the city all day long, a soaking tub would be good.

Breakfast was top notch...

From the moment you walk through the door you realise this is not your average out of the box hotel. We were warmly welcomed on arrival and given a coffee while checking in! The staff were knowledgable and efficient. Our room was stunning, with massive floor to ceiling windows looking straight on to the New York State Library. All the little things have been thought of and the location is fabulous. Will definitely be back to stay in the future if we are lucky.

A little pricey but well worth it. Absolutely no complaints with the room. Bathroom setup was top knotch.

We really appreciated the location. With the Fifth to Madison block being short, it was a short walk to readily catch a cab uptown(on Madison) or downtown(on Fifth). We found 'Essen, A NYC quick restaurant around the corner on Madison a great place to grab a cheap and healthy bite to eat on our way out for the day.

The last time I was in NYC I stayed at the Andaz Wall. My experience there was not the best. This time I was again booked to stayed at the Wall St. location as I wanted to give the hotel a final try. However most of my meetings turned out to be in mid town and so I requested the Andaz Reservations Manager if she could transfer my booking to the 5th Ave location. She obliged immediately and also managed for them to honor my rate at Wall St. So this was already a good start.

The hotel is pretty funky with an apartment feeling when you enter into the lobby. It is supposed to be a casual look with a relaxed attitude hotel. The hotel had upgraded me to a king room with the 5th ave view. I could see the NY Public library just outside my window.

The room is HUGE as per NY standards. The ceiling was 12-14 feet giving it an even larger feel. The room was a bit sparsely furnitured but that was by design to give the room a larger feel and look. And hey, who goes to NYC and stays in the room? The bathroom also had very good amenities. Free wifi. Free bottles of water and free minibar.

If you can get a room at Andaz 5th within 450 per night, its a steal and well worth it. I will surely be visiting them again.

The Andaz on 5th and 41st is an enjoyable stay. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which worked well for the 4 of us. Overall experience was very good, they do need to get their shower heads looked at - we had 2 bathrooms and both wall mounted showers were falling off- bad design, but also had foot bath and rain showers and they were great. Room snacks and non alcoholic drinks were included as were drinks at night in the reception area. Staff were friendly and helpful and location is good close to most things

Room Tip: Street noise can be an issue - we have the white noise app on our iPads that we played at might, so...
