In the interest of full disclosure, I received a free night’s stay at The Jewel. However, even if I had had to pay for the room, I would still be raving about the hotel. Our room consisted of two twin beds and a kitchenette stocked with all the essentials. The room was extremely clean and very spacious, especially for a New York hotel room. When we arrived we had a note welcoming us and cookies and cashews waiting for us, which was a very nice touch. And maybe one of the coolest things about the hotel is that they have empty water bottles on each floor and cold, filtered water for you to fill up on your way out (or way back in). It was perfect and we filled up our bottles a few times.
Everyone at The Jewel very friendly and helpful. And if you want to go to the Top of the Rock, ask them for a coupon where you can receive $2 off of each ticket you purchase. (And by the way, Top of the Rock is totally worth it…awesome views!) We really enjoyed the location of the hotel, too. It’s soooo easy to go and see Matt and Al at the Today show. It’s kind of crazy to watch Today on TV, knowing they’re so close! It’s close to the subway, too, which was a big bonus for us.
We also ate at The Terrace Club, which is just a few doors down from The Jewel. You receive 20% off your check if you bill it to your room. We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was delicious. My friend had salmon that she said was cooked to perfection and I had a chicken Caesar salad that was very tasty. The calamari wasn’t the best we’d ever had, but it wasn’t horrible. And the tiramisu was absolutely delicious…we just wish there was more, it was that good! Oh, and they definitely know how to make a mean long island there. ;)
In short, we would definitely stay at The Jewel again and can’t wait to go back!
