Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Warm greeting on arrival. As we arrived a little late we ordered room service - food arrived ahead of ETA! Very rare. Room and appointments first class, view of the Park very pleasant. Overall a good vibe and would be back without question. Oh and windows that open is nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a view over Bryant Park.

Lovely hotel from the doorman to the housekeeper, friendly and helpful staff.
BUT i would like to ask hotel management to Pleassssse invest in better curtains and blackouts its very bright :(
For street noise I don't think you can do much about it.

Room Tip: Choose a park view room and high floor to avoid noise

Everyone that worked at the Bryant Hotel was very attentive and very friendly too -- especially Sarah at the Concierge Desk. Her smile is enough to light up the lobby :-)
The Double Queen room we had was awesome -- much larger than your average NYC hotel. But that's no surprise at this is no average hotel.
They also offer FREE parking on Friday and Saturday nights which is a nice perk.
When I called the front desk about a noisy neighbor blasting music early in the morning as if they were in a club, they took care of it right away.

I will definitely stay at the Bryant Park Hotel next time I need a room in NYC!

It depends on personal choice - some people like the idea of always staying somewhere they've not been to before; others prefer the familiarity of somewhere they've previously stayed. As a generally risk-averse kind of guy, I know I definitely fall into the latter category. So when we got back to the UK after a week's stay at the Bryant Park Hotel in April 2012, we more or less straight away decided that we'd stay there again when we returned to New York in May of this year.

My review of the hotel from last year is somewhere else amongst the plethora of positive comments about this excellent hotel. At the time I regarded it as the best hotel I'd ever stayed at. That view was based on not only the accommodation (smart, minimal, great views across Bryant Park from the suite we had) but also, critically, the people working there. A crucial factor in being so impressed by the people working at the hotel was, first and foremost, their friendliness. I don't honestly know how many rooms there are at the Bryant Park, but to always have a smiling 'Good morning Mr Smith' as you walked past the lobby does make you feel right at home, and like your stay matters to them. The staff also went out of their way to make our two young daughters feel every bit as special and welcome as we were made to feel, something that I frankly wasn't expecting in a hotel that outwardly seems so trendy.

Two of the staff that made our 2012 stay so special - Chase and Sarah - were still working at the hotel when we returned to the hotel this year. Getting a personal, familiar welcome after goodness knows how many guests have passed by that reception desk was a really nice touch, and it set the tone for what turned out - predictably, I might stress - another great stay at the hotel. Sarah, who the girls had struck up a friendship with last year, went out of her way to make them feel special, going out to the Crumbs bakeshop just across Bryant Park to bring them balloons and cupcakes while we were getting unpacked in the room, for which she was rewarded with copious drawings and thank you notes on Bryant Park stationary from the room.

I don't intend to go into detail this time around as I think my previous review covered that just fine. However, suffice to say that the hotel truly felt like a home from home, our Bryant Park Suite on the sixteenth floor was perfect, the service from everyone was faultless, everything about our stay was spot on, and we've already come to the conclusion that come what may, we have to go back and stay here again next year; I can't honestly bring myself to contemplate a year where we don't stay at this very, very special hotel.

A big thanks again to everyone at the hotel who made the stay this year so memorable. Home suite home indeed.

Felix gave us a wonderful room facing the park. We were celebrating a birthday. We returned from dinner and found in the room a Giant Balloon , a lovely birthday card, confutes and two birthday cupcakes.
That special attention to detail moved us profoundly.
We have to express our appreciation to all the staff on duty from May 23/2013 and may 26/2013: FELIX ASSISTANT MANAGER FRONT DESK who delivered the promise by giving us a great room.AL AND KIRCK in Security by the elevator. FROM THE FRONT DESK WE WANT TO EXPRESS OUR APPRECIATION TO FELIX AGAIN, JENNIFER,NIKKI JOHN AND MICHAEL, THE CONCIERGE SARAH, AND THE BELMAN AND DOORMAN,KEVIN AND ADAN.

Each one of them contributed to making the rainy and grey week-end a wonderful experience.We look forward to staying there soon.

Let's get one thing straight - this is not a cheap hotel. But it IS a good value hotel. The location is great if you're looking for midtown, the rooms are spacious especially the bathroom which is a rarity in this town, and the staff are helpful. The vibe is cool and the cellar bar is decent though the barmaids are dressed surprisingly vampishly. Overall this is a really great package and would be my go-to midtown hotel.

Second time in BP hotel. Great place, great location and very helpful staff. The girl on the desk is great if you want to organise some trips, visits or shows. Personally I like the ''kinky feel'' as one other reviewer described. Lovely park right outside to sit and catch some NY culture and sun.

Room Tip: Park view was great.
