Decent value, friendly staff & excellent location. This is a members club and you can stay there by invitation. No frills, however, if you just need a place to sleep and shower I would recommend. Taxi drivers did had some difficulty locating but once I new how to explain there was generally no problems getting there. It can be congested around that area as shows are busy at night so allow enough time to catch cab or other transportation.

I was pleasantly surprised with the beautiful and quaint boutique hotel. The food is delicious and fresh, and the table linens freshly pressed. Staff really accommodating. Front desk clerks great with info, maps, and general help. The best part is the location - West 51st and 5th Ave in midtown.

We had 5 nights here and were unsure as to what to expect for the price and some reviews on here. It was infact nothing less than excellent and anyone who has said otherwise has very strange ideas of a good hotel! The rooms were clean, beds comfy, staff excellent and couldn't do enough for all guests. We unfortunately chose to stay just before, during and after hurricaine sandy and said before we left that the reason for paying less for our hotel was 'we are not going to spend anytime in our room when we are in New York'! This was put the the test as we couldn't really leave the hotel for a couple of days during our stay while the storm was passing! We found during this time, we felt safe, reassured, welcome and well looked after despite there being only 3 members of staff instead of approx 25!! One of the fantastic men on reception even lent me his own mobile charger after I was unable to get another - most accomodating.

We would not hesitate in recommending this hotel and its staff for a stay in New York and if we ever visited again we would not consider looking anywhere else - the location was MORE THAN 5* and a New Yorker that gave us a tour said you could expect to pay $500 a night to stay where we were!!

Thank you again everyone, what a fabulous find!

Room Tip: We were room 701 and found this brilliant - expect some noise you are in NEW YORK!! We slept perfect...

We (an Australian couple aged in our 50's) recently spent 6 nights here. Never having been to NYC before, we greatly enjoyed being in such a central location - it is easy walking distance to Times Square, Broadway theatres, Central Park, etc. Close to a subway station so also easy to get anywhere else in Manhattan. The hotel is the Women's National Republican Club and lots of club activities and other events such as wedding receptions take place here. The Club members we met were all gracious and charming and the staff were friendly and very helpful. We diplomatically kept our political opinions to ourselves. One evening we had the unexpected pleasure of listening to songs being performed very professionally in the dining area by a group of mature-aged people who meet there regularly. Be prepared to wear something dressier than jeans and sneakers in the bar and dining room as there is a dress code, however everyone is so polite I suspect nothing would be said whatever you wore. The building was built in the 1930s and while it is showing signs of age, it is still lovely with lots of wood and marble. Very clean, old- fashioned place. The restaurant meals were delicious. Only disadvantages are that the restaurant is closed on weekends (but there are lots of other places to eat nearby) and the bedrooms, which have single pane windows, get noise coming from the street all night long. On the Saturday night when there was a large event happening, we also experienced some noise coming through clearly from the next room. The noise didn't worry me as I wore ear plugs but it bothered my husband. This is an interesting and comfortable place, more of a club with some guest bedrooms than a normal hotel. Our experience was extremely positive overall and I recommend this Club to anyone who wants something a bit different to a stay in a boring, standard, modern hotel.

We stayed in NYC for 4 nights at the beginning of october and we are a married couple in our mid 20's.

Location: one word.....EXCELLENT!!! The hotel is 1 minute from the Rockefeller centre/top of the rock and about a 5-10 min tube ride to Times Square but you can walk there in under 15 minutes tops. Same time to Central Park, maybe a bit less. Not noisy either. Nearest tube station is 1 min away at the Rockefeller Centre.

Hotel: really pleased with the hotel. We are always a bit dubious when we read bad reviews but we were very impressed. The rooms were perfect for what we needed which was just as a place to sleep because what else do you need when your in New York?! Our flight arrived at 6am and usual check-in time is not till 2pm but they managed to give us a room which was available so we checked in straight away. There is a restaurant at the hotel but we didn't use it.

The staff were great, as in we were really impressed. They all went out of their way to help us organise our day, give advice and they even leant us a NYC guide book because we forgot ours. I can't talk highly enough about them.
There is wifi in the hotel but we only managed to get it in the lobby. Our room was on the 7th floor and we couldn't access it.

Rooms: Beds were comfy, decent sized bathrooms, towels and toiletries provided. Tv and air con. Perfect for what we wanted and the price we paid. There is no safe but valuables can be locked in hotel safe (this can only be accessed by hotel manager and he is only there Monday to Friday).

Good points: Location location location!!!! Price. Staff were very friendly.
Bad points : wifi not accessible through the whole hotel. No safe in room. (Even though these are bad points this didn't really affect us). Wen you realise the location of the hotel it wins leaps and bounds.

Advice for NYC: buy the NYC pass. It's saves you A LOT of money on attractions. We worked out it saved us nearly £300. Also buy an unlimited metro pass which you can get from the subway stations. We did a 7 day pass and its well worth the $29 per person. We used the subway a lot and its really easy to use and quick. Trains go frequently.

Forget all the negative reviews of this place. If we return we WILL stay here. Top job.
