We selected the Jewel based on reviews submitted by other TA contributors and stayed there four nights. When we arrived we were warmly greeted. Because we requested a room on a high floor, we were offered (and accepted) a room on the 18th floor of the Jewel's adjacent/associated facility called Club Quarters. Although it appeared from street level that the Jewel's rooms had floor to ceiling windows and might be a newer hotel, we were very satisfied with the room we were given at Club Quarters. As are most hotel rooms in NYC, it was small. However, we found it very clean, comfortable, well maintained and to have all the amenities we wanted (in-room coffee, a working free wi-fi, etc.). Throughout our stay, we found the staff to be very helpful and responsive. A nice benefit of staying at this facility was that it also has on the 7th floor a terrace restaurant and bar that served good drinks and meals in a very friendly and comfortable setting. Because we were tired after a long flight and shuttle ride getting to the hotel in the early evening, we were glad the first night not to have to leave the Jewel, walk several doors down the street and enter another building to get to this 7th floor restaurant. We would definitely stay here again, perhaps requesting the highest floor available at the Jewel itself (instead of Club Quarters) to see what it it like. Again, the location of the Jewel/Club Quarters can't be beat and we recommend it. A final comment/example concerning hotel staff responsiveness -- late the second night of our stay the room smoke alarm started "chirping" due to a weak battery. We contacted the front desk and within minutes staff came to our room to fix the problem and apologize for the inconvenience.
