This was our second visit to the Kimberly, an all-suites hotel. We brought our children so we had a two bedroom suite, with a great view. The location is wonderful and the price was very reasonable considering its location. Obviously, this is not the Waldorf (which is only one block away) but it's great if you have your family with you and you want a kitchen and lots of room.

Very nice 1 bedroom suite in a great location near shopping and subway. Staff very friendly. This was a business junket, so we didn't have to pick up the tab. I think it was around $400/night. I could never afford to stay here on my own, but it was fun for just this one time.

We are 3 ladies who stayed at the Kimberly for a 4 night sight-seeing and shopping trip. we shared a one bed suite which had a huge bed in the bedroom and a pull out bed in the sitting room. The suite also had kitchen facilities although the gas supply had been disconnected for security reasons, but as all we wanted to do was make tea, coffee and toast we didn't care. We all felt extremely comfortable. There was no bar in the hotel which didn't worry us but it had a restaurant which we didn't use as we liked to try restaurants in different areas of the city each night. However next door is a great little diner for breakfast brunch, or a snack!

The staff were excellent, very obliging, nothing was too much trouble. The room was cleaned daily with fresh sheets and towels, the bathroom was adequate rather than large but was more than made up for by the bedroom & sitting room.

The location was brilliant, just a short walk to St Patricks Cathedral, the Rockerfella Centre and Fith Ave. (If you do nothing else in New York go to the Top of the Rock)!! Be prepared to travel for decent, reasonably priced restaurants as it is mainly expense account dining in the area so is quite pricey, we had great fun trying different places to eat and had mixed fortunes but thats all part & parcel of it.

We didn't use the subway at all only taxis and had no problems and we felt they were good value. Just watch out between 5-6pm as they change shifts and can be hard to find.

We would definately recommend the Kimberly if you want a comfortable hotel with no frills in the centre of the action!

My husband and I spent three nights at the Kimberly Hotel and it was wonderful. Our room had a living area and a bedroom so we had plenty of room to stretch out which is unlike most hotel rooms I have stayed in New York. It was very clean and had lots of closet and drawer space. The two TV sets solved the every problematic fight over the remote control!

It has the most comfortable beds that I have every tried and enough fluffy pillows to feel like a queen.

What most impressed me, however, was the service. It was superb. We were always addressed by name when entering or leaving the hotel from the moment we checked in. Best of all, two weeks after we left, we discovered that we had left two shopping bags of clothes that we had purchased at Bloomingdales in one of the closets. I called the hotel and they had them in the mail to us by the next day and not one thing was missing.

The only problem was that one of the elevators was not working so getting up and down was quite slow but the service and comfort of the Kimberly hotel more that made up for that glitch.

I am just back from a stay in NYC and stayed at this hotel for six fantastic nights. One of the best things was the staff, they were all so friendly a special memtion to Harry the door man he was a true gent and always was happy and very helpfull.

The hotel was in a great location with Smith and Wolenskys just around the corner and Mint resturant right across the street, both fantastic eating places.

Four of us stayed at this hotel myself , husband and our 17 year old daughter and 14 year old son, we had a one bed suit, and the only thing we had to do was request two pull down beds for the living room as the sofa bed was very uncormftable, however this was certainly not a problem and there was plenly of room for them. the bed in the bedroom was very cormfortable.

I would throughly recommend this hotel and when I go back to NYC will def stay there again. It's location was fantastic and very safe at night, the rooms were all cleaned to perfection.

Stayed here for 5 nights and we were very happy overall. The only hitch when we were there was our friends got stuck in the elevator which was very scary for them, but was taken very lightly by the hotel.

The elevators seem very old and seem to break down frequently. I believe that they should be replaced.

Other than that were were pleased with the hotel. It's a great location.

I've stayed at the Kimberly a couple of dozen times over the last 15 years. It's my first choice of hotel in NYC and I stay there whenever I can. For the price of a 5 star hotel room you get a full suite with very comfortable bed and a lovely living room, just like an apartment. (It was actually built as an apartment building.)

The staff is excellent and some (including Kevin, the doorman) have been there since I started staying there in the early 1990s.

The only drawbacks: the elevators are slow, it's a bit tough to catch a cab in front of the hotel (I usuall walk two doors over to third ave) and it can get a bit pricey in high season.

But it's luxurious, updated, clean and very comfortable, in a perfect location.
