“excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Great location next to Rockefeller Center and a short stroll to Central park. Room was a little small but big enough for 2 guests and the view was amazing. The hotel and room were very clean and well maintained. The service was great as well. I would definitely stay here again.

First i will start with the good parts, the location(maybe the best location in nyc), hotel and amenities, free coffee and water are very well, but the management style of the hotel is very poor. We made our booking to the hotel at January 10 months before the stay, I informed the hotel twice prior to our arrival about our late check-in, booking com people have also contacted the hotel and called me saying that it is ok for late check out, at the 9th night we came to hotel at midnight after a long flight and we are told that hotel is overbooked and we will be transferred to another hotel belongs to same group and front dest said we will pay nothing to the hotel that we transferred and our first night will be free of charge we are not pleased with the inconvenience after a very long trip that we planed for a long time but we said ok, next day at the other hotel they charged us for the night despite our refusal to pay, they said we have to pay and handle the situation with Jewel and if not paid we will not be check out, we paid helpless and go to the Jewel, there was a different one in the front dest and said we have to pay full charge, we gone mad after this behavior and explained the situation again and again, we argued and finally she said they are ok for free of charge first night, be careful with this hotel about their overbooking scam, after this situation i read lots of reviews on tripadvisor on similar situations

Stayed here overnight to spend two days in NYC. Great Location. east access to Rocerkfeller Plaza & Radio City. I can't say it enought, GREAT LOCATION. We went to the Today show, if you're going to see the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City, the location is also great. The rooms are roomy, clean. They offer free filtered bottle water which is a great location. The 7th floor has a restaurant, The Terrace, with great views. Keureg coffee makers in your room. Our room had a queen size bed, pull out couch, table/desk combo with chair, sink, small fridge, micro & bathroom. For NYC, large rooms. We stayed on the 6th floor & heard no noise at night. I heard once guest complain about the room from the next door club. As a previous reviewer said this place is a jewel. Used mostly for business travelers. It is clean, easy access to NY and has a great pizza shop next door.

Room Tip: Request the 6th floor or higher. I believe rooms start on the 3rd floor & you may hear noise at...

Stayed here for three nights and could not have been happier. the room, while small, was efficiently laid out and comfortable. The room was clean and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. The location is unbeatable- across from Rockefeller Center. This is one hotel that will see our repeat business! New York hotels can often be a hassle but this hotel was perfect for what we needed.

We stayed during marathon weekend. This hotel is an a fantastic location directly across from Rockafeller Center. We walked everywhere! The rooms are small, but that is to be expected for NYC. I appreciated the clean, updated hotel rooms and accommodating staff. Our room didn't have a view, but was very quiet.

We enjoyed the convenience of this mid-town location. The staff was very accommodating, both in storing our luggage for us and giving us good directions and help to enjoy New York City. There is a nice lounge with coffee, wifi, etc. available. As with most NYC hotels, there's not a lot of room, but a fold-out chair/bed in our room did accommodate a third person.
