“Great weekend place to stay”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

I had a wonderful experience at the hotel - Room and staff was perfect - great location, i will certainly come back! We stayed in the newer room and we really like the style and decoration - I forgot my cell phone charger and i was provided one by the reception.

Excellent one night stay at the Chandler. Although nothing stood out as 5 star top notch in the way of accomodation or amenities, all the boxes are ticked and quality and attention to detail are obvious. Good value for money. The service however, was 5 star all the way. Friendly, helpful to the extreme and if anything, over eager! I would like to single out Walter Rabello, the night manager, who went out of his way to help me solve a problem unrelated to my stay in the hotel. He gave generously of his time and I will be returning to the Chandler thanks to him.

Booked a king size room. Had an amazing time. The street view was great. Only draw back was the 6:00 AM jackhammer across the street. Can't blame the hotel on that one.

The room was beautiful, and the bed was nice and comfortable. There was a decent sitting area, with a desk. There were 2 cordless phones in the room, but we had an issue with not being able to check messages. No problem, as the front desk allowed us to use their phone to check.

Only other "issue," and I hate calling it that, was the difficulty we had finding the hair dryer. There was one in the room, but it was in a drawer we wouldn't have thought to look in. In fact, the front desk clerk gave me 5 different drawers it could be in.

All in all, it was a WONDERFUL stay. The staff was kind and courteous. The rooms and lobby were beautiful, and the location was amazing. Literally in the shadow of the Empire State Building.

Good price, good location, very friendly staff and decent enough facilities. Room was pleasant and had a very smart bathroom but the air con was so noisy you couldn't really sleep with it on, which was a pain, and the walls of the hotel are very thin so when other people are walking in the hallway by your room you can hear them. These are minor grumbles though as overall I really liked the hotel.

Dear Charliefromworthing,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. I am happy that you enjoyed the hotel and apologize that your stay was not as quiet as you would have liked. Thank you for letting us know about the AC issue. We are looking into the room you stayed in so that we can take care of that for future guests. Even though our hotel tends to usually be a very quiet hotel with minimal noise issues I have made a note on your profile so that during any future stays you are blocked in a more quiet area. We look forward to welcoming you back!

Sincerely,

Kate Martin

Although this hotel is out of the Times Square area, it was worth the walk. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff is SUPER friendly and helpful. The rooms are small but comfy and yes the AC is noisy but after a long day of walking and seeing the sites, you don't even hear it once asleep. The bathrooms are small and the shower could benefit from a tilting head but I would stay there again and again and again! Great value for what we got! We were upgraded to a deluxe queen. I love that I always had the 2 doormen waiting to open the doors for me. They always put a smile on my face! Thank you, Hotel Chandler!

This is a beautiful hotel. Quaint and charming. The rooms are not huge, but very comfortable. The turn-down service was cool and the chocolate was a nice touch. Close to great restaurants, Bella Napoli and Crooked Knife. Would definitely choose it again.

Dear Bdaviso2,

Thank you for your review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel and our signature turn-down service. Next time I would encourage you to try our in-house restaurant Juni restaurant and bar with our signature cocktails and farm to table food concept, as I believe it to be one of the best restaurants in the area!

great room/slightly disappointed by "wasted corridor"--with no light (difficult to access suit cases)--loved morning newspaper in Lovely TV room/library.
was at a trade show @ the Javits centre--enjoyed my 20 minute walk there.
5 min walk to empire state---15 mins to "highline "(a must).
Staff couldent have been nicer---a lot of Europeans staying---elevator talk -Italian/French.---this is a hotel for understated people.---in a word "elegant"
wouldent think of staying anywhere else on next trip.
