“Diamond class accommodation.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

If you wish to be close to all the main midtown Manhattan attractions this is the hotel to consider. Just around the corner from St. Patrick's Cathedral it is well equipped and secure. The rooms are small but well designed with air conditioning which is not over noisy. Two adults and one child felt comfortable in the room which had a large flat screen TV, coffee making facility and a clock radio alarm. The bed was well made up, clean and with good quality mattress. A separate lounge with two computers and printer ensured that we could stay in touch and also print off boarding passes for our return journey. Chilled water stations with supplied bottles on each floor ensured that we were well hydrated throughout our stay. As we had booked way in advance a good deal was possible in respect of our three night stay. Staff very friendly and helpful.

This hotel comes on my highest recommendation for a base in NYC, it has a great location and as a small boutique hotel, you get the added-extra of a personable staff. It’s central to 5th Avenue and Rockerfeller Centre, it’s only a 10 minute walk to Times Square, ESB and across the road from Radio City. The room service is a little confusing and the pizza place is avoidable as it really isn’t even that nice. Lovely water facilities on each floor. Honestly have nothing bad to report; generally a small, well-equipped hotel with comfortable rooms. Will certainly stop here again.

Room Tip: Room service is confusing - order at the room, but have to collect from reception

Wonderful location. Many attractions, restaurants etc within walking distance. We had a "small" double but it was roomy enough.
Very comfortable stay. Coffee in lounge and cool purified water nice touch. Friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Room on 5th floor was very quiet.

Great location near Times Square, Theater District, 5th Avenue, and Radio City.
This boutique hotel has great amenities including chilled water stations throughout the hotel.
I definitely will stay here the next time I'm in NY!

Excellent value. Wonderful view of Rockefeller Center/Plaza! Staff very friendly. Perfect location; short walk to Times Square, 5th Avenue, and NBC Studios to watch the Today Show live on the Plaza. Appreciated having a refrigerator and microwave. Will definitely stay here again!

Mom and daughter stayed at The Jewel hotel for 5 nights. It was the perfect place to stay in New York! It was safe, quiet, and a great location. The customer service was outstanding. Kudos to the staff, especially Iris, Christina and Kenny. They made great suggestions and always willing to go up and beyond for us. Another perk of this hotel was the fact that is you can also use the hotel, Club Quarters and receive 20% off at their bar/restaurant. It was extremely nice to have filtered water on every floor in addition to the coffee and lounge area on the 2nd floor. The hotel was very clean and obviously still new.

My wife and I can't speak highly enough about this hotel. (The one complaint is that the keys frequently became demagnetized.) The staff was extraordinarily friendly and the room (408) was, by New York standards, almost apartment-sized. And instead of a lobby, there's a wonderful "living room" on the second floor with genuinely tasty coffee and newspapers. (Cookies would have been nice.)

The location, of course, is near perfect, allowing us to return to the hotel with some frequency throughout the day, whether to deposit purchases or simply relax for a few minutes until walking down to the Theater District. Most places one would want to go to on a visit to NYC are within easy walking distance, and, for our visit downtown to the Lower East Side to see the Eldridge Street Synagogue (itself a wonderful site), the subway was literally only a couple of blocks away on Sixth Avenue. I fear that we won't be able to stay there again either because it will be justifiably filled up or it won't be offering the wonderfully enticing rates that led us to take the chance on what was to us a brand new hotel.

Room Tip: It's hard to imagine a better room than 408.
