4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Literally, across from Rock Cntr. We had a 2 bed suite with 2 full baths, 5 of us. Narrow layout but we all managed to be comfortable. Bedrooms were not totally private with opaque glass sliding doors that did not go from ceiling to floor. Had a full service kitchen with small frig. Albeit quite costly it was enjoyable and clean. Felt very european in its setup with guest supply closet on each floor and a common area on the 2nd floor with pc and capuccino machine. Staff was always very attentive and cooperative! Not so common in NYC>>>

Centrally located and decently priced. Staff extremely courteous. The little lobby was small and unattractive, but the ladies working in it were warm and friendly. They were efficient and did a wonderful job. Room ergonomically designed and interesting. Very clean and comfortable.

I can't complain about this room, it was a little more than I had expected to spend on a room; but when I take into consideration the location and the amount I could have spent on car service or taxi's...it was totally worth it. Clean, nice friendly staff! Highly recommend, walking distance was great to everything I needed; therefore no a achy feet! Def, stay there again!

This is a smaller boutique hotel right smack next to Rockefeller Center. I stayed one night on business and pleasure during the tree lighting ceremony. It's part of a corporate affiliation with the Club Quarters. Check in was a little slow, there is not front desk, only a small concierge area. The folks working appear to know what they are doing. They did really screw up my bill but I am not sure it was their fault or someone at the travel center for my company. I would though check everything given the problem I had here, this does not reflect the review.

Stayed on an upper floor unit, had to take two elevators. Always concerned when you have to do that for fire and emergencies. Not sure what that deal was but I was OK with it. Room is small, designed for business travelers, queen bed, small work area, partitioned off and a nice bathroom. Room was clean, I give it that. $300 plus a night it better be clean. There was a restaurant but I did not visit. Only stayed the night.

The place is literally at Rockefeller Center so if you are in town as a tourist, this is a convenient location to that area of the city. There was nothing about this place, compared to others in the city of that price point, that spoke volumes. Check out was long, only one person working that little desk area. Overall, average to decent, nothing fantastic. But you wanna lay your head right int eh middle of the Rock Center? This place works as good as any.

Great boutique hotel across from Rockefeller. Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. The rooms are nice and well appointed. There is a lounge on the second floor and you can get coffee, tea and bottled water all day long. There is a great restaurant called Bill's Bar and Burgers across the street which is a local hang. The hotel is in a great location and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room up high facing the street. We enjoyed a corner room with 2 windows although none of...

The hotel is a great location. It doesn't have a fancy reception. If you are looking for a nice room that is not minuscule then this is a good hotel for the price. Located just off 5th, walking distance to Broadway, 10 min to grand central. I stayed a weekend on my own as a single woman and it was a nice hotel. I will definitely good back again.

Perfect location.Being opposite Rockefeller centre and near NBC studios great especially during the elections. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms very small but manageable . Free bottled water was a nice touch and free wifi much appreciated. Would definitely stay again.
