The Jewel facing Rockefeller Center
Ranked #101 of 468 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

A very clean and functional hotel located in the centre of the city. The biggest advantage of the hotel is it's location - Rockefeller Centre. It's accessibility from the main streets like the 5th ave., Subway station, Hop on Hop off bus stops, Central Park and Times Square make it an ideal location for tourists.

The rooms are extremely well furnished and clean. The staff is very courteous and informative. The service levels of the hotel are excellent. They provide free wifi and water coolers & bottles are kept on each floor for the guests to use.

In all the experience at the hotel was great and I would recommend this hotel to all.

I had to spend the night for business and thought this offshoot of Club Quarters would foot the bill. Unfortunately they had very small rooms and noisy corridors. The stall was nice and helpful, but the rate was just too high for that kind of room, for $450, I could have stayed around the corner at the Hilton and gotten a much nicer room.

We have been to The Jewel on 3 occasions & will be back in March of this year. Yes, the rooms are smallish but that is made up by all the other advantages. The location is perfect...just a quick stroll from the Today show & Rockefeller Center. We love rolling out of bed and quickly run down to The Today show. The rooms with the balconies give the appearance of being larger. Having the fresh water refills on each floor is an added bonus. The staff is minimal but very helpful & welcoming. The new restaurant Downstairs is excellent (best gnocchi I have ever had) . We Like to visit NYC a couple times a year & The Jewel has become our Hotel of Choice.

We spent some time selecting our hotel, price and location were the most important aspects, the Jewel came tops. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous, our room was more than adequate and comfortable and the location, just 5 minutes walk to times square, was perfect.
This hotel could not be faulted particularly for our short stay. We did not use the dining facilities but we did have a couple of night caps in the cocktail bar which had an interesting mix of clientele.

Room Tip: The 14th floor rooms overlooking 52nd street will give great views but it will mean changing elevato...

The hotel is located in the center of all main NY attractions. The staff members were friendly and helpful. The one weakness is the size of the hotel and its rooms - they are quite narrow. The beds, as well, are small.

Location, Location, Location! This property is a mere short block from Rockelfeller Center, and a half block from 5th Ave. St. Patrick's Cathedral (undergoing heavy renovations, btw), the American Girl Place, and even Broadway attractions are a few blocks away. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a small fitness room and free coffee on the second floor. The lobby is tiny; you basically have to check yourself in, like at the airport kiosks. There is always at least one employee there to help. You can get a discounted breakfast at the Club Quarters a few doors down from the Jewel, which is also a Club Quarters property.
We had a "Junior Suite", which was, well, JUNIOR! There was barely enough room between the end of the bed and the wall, to pass through (and we are not husky, athletic folks). The sofa bed was more of a "chair bed". When that was opened, you had to walk sideways to pass between the wall (with the TV) and the bed. The room was very long though, with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, desk, and 2 chairs. There was free wifi too. The bathroom was OK...very few towels, but very clean. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet, clean, convenient place to stay (especially during the frigid winter temps), and can live without such amenities as bathrobes, bellmen, room service, on-site dining, then this is a great property. Also, you can fill free water bottles on each floor, I believe. Duane Reade (similar to Walgreens, CVS) is on the same block, and there are plenty of reasonably priced places to eat nearby.

Room Tip: Keep in mind that a Junior Suite is long and narrow, and the sofa bed is really an armchair that ope...
