Where to start... I'm here for business which usually means a long boring trip without the mrs. spending most my time in the room. So what I want is a large room, nice luxury and a place to separate work and bedtime. Well you're not going to get that in most NY hotel rooms... Generally small and hominess... Enter the Hyatt 48 Lex. Probably not the cheapest hotel room but like I said its for biz and I'm a platinum. At first, the booked terrace room wasn't available so I got a regular room much smaller and w/out a balcony. So the review really is about the corner suite w the balcony... I'm not entirely happy about the downgrade at first but the regular room is really nicely laid out and well furnished... Didn't bother me for long.
Huge room separate living, bath, 'kitchen', wrap around balcony, and bed.
Modern but elegant finishes... Dark woods, sleek steel, nicely done... Great standup shower w tiles...Typical Hyatt in my experience so far...
Two 37/42" flat screens
Great customer service... Clean rooms, helpful concierge, available lounge area in lieu of lobby... Everyone is Super helpful and always has a smile...
Clean and updated room, from wooden furniture to drapes to tvs and amenity kits
Turndown service w chocolates
Lex lounge offers fruits, coffee, tea, in addition to some pastries in the morning and cheese at night, free PC/biz center on a working Mac with printer... Nice "free" space for all
Free Internet for plats otherwise is 15/day w ability to swap device, only one per room at rate.
Although I didnt use... Small out of the way fridge, dish washer, minibar, wine bar, yes in room wine selection...and second 'kitchen' sink
Prob due to the only two elevators the wait can be kinda slow since it services the entire bldg plus cleaning crew during peak hours
Location is a bit far east for my liking, but it's not awful... Waldorf and Interconnential is nearby, so you'd have to say the same about them...
Doors are heavy but the sound is kinda bad... Try not to stay near elevator or exit doors, but oddly enough it seems like this hotel is quiet as a mouse after 10... Dif type crowd id say... Fairly priced, a bit higher than mid tier but worth it.
10/15 min to central park, 5/7 min from fifth ave
Would definitely stay again, lex brass restaurant was quite good, you could do a lot worse for hotel restaurant... Didn't mind eating here at all. Wait staff seem really friendly.
