Just steps from Rockefeller Center and the Today Show plaza, I couldn't have asked for a better location. This was my first trip to NYC. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and asked if we were there to celebrate anything. Traveling with my just turned 13 year old and 15 year old daughters, I told her we were there to celebrate a birthday and hopefully see Matt Lauer at the Today Show the following morning. I asked if they had any availability for a larger room and she offered us an upgrade on her! We could see part of St. Patrick's Cathedral spires and could look down into Rockefeller Plaza (Room 909). She gave us a map of the city, easy walking directions and pointed us in the direction of Central Park. We packed a ton of things into the one night we were there and The Jewel's location was the key factor. The hotel is clean, very secure (need a key card to access any of the floors) and the furnishings are tastefully modern and compact,,,they make the most out of their space! I'd have taken the pillows if I could - they were luxurious! I was pleasantly surprised that I could not hear our neighbors...I am a light sleeper and usually am annoyed by people above or next to us but what woke me up was the occasional jack-hammering in the wee hours of the morning. (I guess it really is the city that never sleeps!)
I loved the 2nd-floor coffee station where you could make a fresh cup of cappuccino should the plain old coffee from your in-room maker leave you wanting more. They also have ice-cold water refill stations on every floor. There are numerous deli's and markets offering an eclectic array of hot/cold food options as well as plenty of high-end restaurants just feet from the hotel.
If you forgot to pack something, just head to the pharmacy at the other end of the plaza! All in all it was a wonderful stay with a very welcoming staff!
