The Court – A St Giles Hotel
Ranked #325 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Good points: Room size, large comfortable bed, views, pillows, clean towels daily, nice large TVs, friendly reception staff, location excellent (5 mins from grand central)

Bad points: Very run down in need of refurbishment, bathroom was dirty, air conditioning breaking 3 times in 4 days, price of mini bar, price of breakfasts, gym was a walk away.

Sadly this hotel has seen better days which is a shame because it was and could be lovely.

Room Tip: 614 great view of empire state

We got a special for this hotel and it was well worth the money. All the reviews on here are very accurate as to the condition of this hotel, i.e., good location, larger rooms, feels more like a city apartment than a hotel room, clean, furniture showing its age, not deluxe accommodation. Let me add that there is a new fitness center you can use in their sister hotel- the Tuscany - which is four doors down from the Court, and you have to exit onto the street to get there. The fitness center is not well equipped, but it definitely has machines and weights sufficient for a quick workout (has a lot of cardio machines as well). There are a fair amount of good and well-reviewed restaurants right outside the door of the hotel. Overall, I recommend this hotel for visitors.

This was the second time we stayed in this hotel. The first time we stayed we ended up getting engaged so obviously I have great memories of the place and was a little nervous it might not live up to the memory. But we had a great time. Spacious room, comfortable bed, great location in mid town manhatton and within walking distance of everything. Both the male and the female concierge could not have been more helpful- booking restaurants, giving us tips about what to see, charging our phones for us etc. I'd recommend...

Stayed here while on a mother-daughter weekend trip to NYC. The hotel is only a four-block walk from Grand Central, which made it easy for us to get around the city. Our room had a fabulous view of the Empire State Building - an added bonus. The room was clean and mostly quiet (as quiet as you could expect on a Saturday evening/night in the city). Our room felt like home for our three-day, two-night visit. Great hotel that I highly recommend!

Room Tip: Don't be disappointed if you get an "inside/courtside" room...it's quieter than st...

I got a great rate on Hotwire (blindly when booked) and had a very good stay at the St. Giles. Room was larger than some in the area and comfortable/clean, including a very comfortable bed. Street noise, and some new construction across the street, were a bit louder than we would have liked, but not a big deal. It's location next to Grand Central is excellent.

...of $89/night.
It's such a pleasure, when one prepares to a quick 'city getaway', and be be rewarded with a fun experience starting with a great stay. The St Giles staff did well in making us feel as though we were paying customers. (and n Manhattan?)
The view of the Chrysler Bldg never fails.

Location, location , location and this property certainly has it. Staff is approachable, responsive and friendly. Stayed in rm 1012 which is a spacious corner unit. Furniture is starting to show it's age. Rm was clean. There is a great bar located in the lobby. I got this room through a discount website and it was a superb value for the rate i paid. Would definetely stay here again.
