We bought tickets for a play and wanted to spend the night in NYC to enjoy ourselves, but we did not want to spend a fortune or stay in a dump. We found this hotel on-line and due to the low price we did not know what to expect.

The hotel is located on 51st facing the International Building of Rockafeller Center. It is a small boutique hotel. The rooms are on the small side, but they are set up great. There is a closet, a desk with two chairs and a chair with a built in tray to hold a book or a drink.

There was a microwave and a coffemaker. The room had lots of outlets, especially near the desk and the bed. Near the desk there was even a USB port you could use. There were also cables in a storage area on the desk in case you wanted to view anything on the TV.

The bathroom was set up nice and compact with a sliding door so it did not open into the room.
There is a chilled bottled water station on each floor which was very nice.

When you stay here you are also given access to the Terrace Room at the Club Quarters a few doors down where you can get a drink or have a meal.

The hotel is located in a great area. It is a short walk to the theater district and there is a couple of subway stations nearby. There is not much going on in the evening, especially on the weekend.

We can not wait to have another overnight.

Room Tip: They have discounts at the front desk for attractions in the area. Ask for a room that faces Rockafeller Center

While most of the time the term boutique hotel means a room so small it's a glorified closet, the Jewel really is terrrific. The location can't be beat and while the rooms are small the layout makes sense and gives a feeling of much more spaciousness. The service was just terrific - requests for extra pillows or a replacement hair dryer were quickly filled; while there was no concierge, front desk staff were full of suggestions and willing to make reservations anywhere. If you're looking for a reasonably priced home base for NYC sightseeing or a show, this is a great choice.

The Jewel Hotel offers a great location, convenient to all of midtown. We had a room with a small kitchenette (stove top, microwave and oven, and fridge). The room was clean and quiet, the service was fine. You need to only walk one block and you're at the ice rink at Rock Center and two blocks to St. Patrick's Cathedral and all the shops on 5th Avenue. It's a perfect spot for a quick weekend in Manhattan.

I booked a single bedded room and was very pleasantly surprised when I was given a queen size bed which was very comfortable as were the pillows. The room was small, well lit and the bathroom was large and very well stocked with towels. On my floor (another pleasant surprise) was an alcove that supplied purified water and sealed plastic bottles free of charge. That's a first! I ordered room service, coffee, warm cream and a warmed cup. I received cold milk, styro cups and no sugar. I called and complained, they were very, very apologetic and replaced my order, correctly, very quickly and the coffee was very good. The restaurant gives a 20% discount to hotel guests. The hotel is excellently located right across the street from Rockefeller Center, the theatre district is blocks away and Fifth avenue and St. Patrick's Cathedral are also just blocks away. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. My only complaint was that there wasn't a safe in my room and I had to be taken to the sub-lobby to access my safe. I booked online and received an incredibly low price. You won't be disappointed.

There is really nothing more to add to the many other reviews that simply rave about this place. Given that you're right across from Rock Center anyone who criticizes the slightest detail about this marvelous hotel should have their head examined. Sure, if it was in Peoria, Illinois for the same price you could find a few nits to pick, but you can easily spend two or three times the room rate for another Manhattan hotel and be far worse off. This is the undisputed best hotel value in the Big Apple, bar none.
