My partner and I spent 4 nights at the Muse. It was not our first time at The Muse, but the staff(especially Barbara Los) made it a special visit for us. They went out of their way to make sure we were well taken care of during our visit. We would highly recommend The Muse, as it is convenient to the theater district, subways and shopping. Can't wait to return!

We spent Valentines weekend at The Muse Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. Typical of NYC hotels, the room was on the small side, but very comfortable, with all standard amenities. The bed was a bit soft for my taste. The towels and robes were stiff and well-worn.

This hotel may have had the best water pressure of any hotel shower ever! Wow! Loved it. Nice bathroom. Useful products. Large shower.

I had a few negative experiences with room service...so I think they have an opportunity there. There were times the phone went unanswered. They got a very simple order wrong in two different ways. And one of my biggest hotel pet peeves...breakfast trays and dishes were still in the hallway at 4:00...and still at 4:30 and after I had already brought it to their attention.

Staff was professional and helpful. Rooms were cleaned as expected. Check-in was lightning fast...which I love. The Valentines Day candy bar in the lobby was a really nice treat!

One question...we did wonder the origin of the unusual stone bust near the TV in our room? I liked it better when Kimpton Hotels had fishbowls in the rooms.

All in all, a great stay.

We love staying at Kimpton Hotels, and chose "The Muse" because of it's proximity to Broadway...and the recommendation of friends. This place is A-One Plus. Exceptionally friendly staff. Beautiful rooms. SO close to every show we were seeing on Broadway. We would stop at the bar after our evening Broadway shows...and the bartender not only recognized us...he remembered our cocktail order. Always a good sign. The suite was amazing...and housekeeping kept the room impeccably clean. Definitely another stay here in the future.

I have stayed in this hotel a few times now. Usually I am on business and now I am spoiled. The rooms are clean, spacious and quiet. With the eclectic artwork and decor you feel like you are in a painting or a movie. Don't forget this is midtown Manhattan so meals and extras can be a bit pricey however you do get excellent value for your money. The staff is absolutely amazing and accomodating. Stay here if you get the chance. It is extremely cozy and you'll forget you are in the middle of a bustling city.

Excellent location - a block away from Times Square and
theaters. We upgraded our room to a suite and had a separate elevator that took us directly to our floor.
Since we were celebrating our 20th anniversary, we were thrilled to find a chilled bottle of champagne and a gracious note from the hotel manager waiting for us on our arrival. We stayed for five nights and found it to be perfectly located for needs- close enough to the "heart of town" but far enough away from all the noise and congestion. We will definitely stay there again when we return to NYC.

OK, by quiet I mean quiet by the standards of Midtown NY. 46th Street is busy but isn't the maelstrom of people you find a block over on 7th Avenue. The Muse is part of the Kimpton chain of boutique hotels and it's very typical of them. Small, beautifully furnished rooms, many amenities including robes, wine in the afternoon, coffee in the morning, etc. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Location is quite near to most of the Broadway theaters, walks between 5 and 15 minutes tops. This was our second stay and they upgraded us to a room with a terrace. In better weather this would be a delightful plus (we had several inches of snow) with a table and chairs you could use for meals plus two loungers. Quite deluxe in spring or summer.
