“Friendly Staff and Beautiful Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

EXCELLENT service from the moment I walked in. The hotel is in a great location; close to everything, yet just enough removed from the hordes of tourists in Midtown. Beautiful interiors are calming and bright (and the lobby smelled amazing). From check in to check out, everyone on staff was very kind and helpful. One of the staff even got me a cab at 5 pm on a Friday (which is next to impossible - I was so grateful). Rooms are good-sized by NYC standards, and gorgeous floor to ceiling windows let in lots of light. Bathroom was beautiful. Great stand-up shower with excellent water pressure. Good wine selection in the room; the kitchenette was a nice touch. I enjoyed relaxing in the cozy lounge on the second floor. I would absolutely stay here again, and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor facing Lexington Avenue for more natural light.

Stayed here in June 2014, had great corner room on 16th floor overlooking 48th and Lex. Room was large for NYC standards. Had a great mini kitchenette/mini-bar area, plus great bathroom products.

The elevators are super slow in this building (I think there are only 2 for the entire property??). The concierge lounge had a skimpy breakfast spread, but it was nice to have even though the pickings were slim.

The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. The housekeeping was also great, minus the time I was awoken at 4am with someone saying I had ordered an ironing board... Oops! Wrong room.

Will consider staying here again if they are running specials.

Room Tip: Ask for corner room. Bigger and better views!

Stayed there for business it is what one would expect from a "Hyatt". My room was 'upgraded' but I don't really know what the 'studio' room was if not that. The housekeeping service was sloppy and forgetful. I asked for two things, and they turned up after 20 min with one of the two! Some hotels have made their own convenience the defining reason for things like check in-checkout times. This one says check in at 4pm and check out at 11am!! I requested a later check out and they made a rather big deal of moving it to even 1pm and then eventually 2pm as huge, reluctant favour. The lounge with complimentary tea/coffee and morning pastries etc is a good feature. Would recommend only if paying upto 300usd in my assessment of other Manhattan hotels which are better value over this price.

I have reviewed this property before but one again wanted to give them 5 stars for remaining to be the only hotel to consider in New York City! Their perfect location, the restaurant Lexington Brass and their incredible staff, Carlos, Jose, Tommy and Tandon Nihaal! I know I'm forgetting some but every one there exceed the most discerning travelers expectations! Simply the best!! Looking forward to my next visit!

I stayed here for 3 nights and was expecting a standard flagged Hyatt hotel - but was quite pleasantly surprised! This hotel acts and looks like a boutique-hotel brand. There is a compact lobby on the ground floor, but a relaxing and well designed lounge on the second floor. I stayed on the 9th floor and there were only six rooms on this floor. The room is good sized and has a wet bar. The bed is comfortable. Service in the hotel was friendly and helpful, especially with Christopher in the front desk. Location in midtown is quite convenient, though beside many other hotels that packed the sidewalks with tourists. The only minor quirks include a charge for use of the wifi (but they ended up including it) and they could do with better quality towels.
