The Kimberly is in a fantastic area of NYC, around the corner from the Astoria, a couple of blocks from Grand Central and 5th Avenue. The lobby is tiny and cramped, and as this is the only area for free wifi and it was slow, I barely took advantage of it, opting instead for the super fast, free McDs around the corner!
Checking in was professionally handled and fast, and the room was 4C facing...um...well, another building and some A/C machinery. Having said that, the alternative was a tall office block opposite the front of the building with the addition of street noise and honking taxis, so I settled for this as it gave me a good night's sleep!
The top floor lounge offers a great view, but it's always packed and is quite a small area. But it's very popular and a good spot for a party. Didn't eat at the hotel as nothing was included, but the room was big and clean, with superb beds, Microwave, fridge, minibar, nice bathroom, large wall mounted TV and a gimmicky HP control desk for finding out stuff/hotel info. This was placed in front of the TV and blocked the screen, and it didn't work - what's wrong with a good old fashioned hotel guide book eh?!!!
A good night's sleep. Pricey, but that's NY for you.
