“Wonderful, friendly hotel”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Our trip to NYC was enhanced by our stay at the Kimberly. It is centrally located at 50th and Second Avenue, a short walk from the subway and practically on the Second Ave. bus line. The rooms are all suites with small kitchenettes complete with refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher! We had a huge living room, a bedroom with comfortable beds and lovely linens, and a small, but nicely appointed bathroom. Everything is spotlessly clean. There is a penthouse floor with views in all four directions which has a fabulous, reasonably priced brunch, and drinks in the evening. Everyone who worked there was extremely nice and accomodating from the doorman to the concierge.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked 50th St. which has a good bit of noise during the week. I did not find it intrus...

We spent 5 nights at The Kimberly in Jan and could not have been more happy with our one bedroom suite! It was beautiful, spacious, quiet and very clean! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved the breakfast buffet on the top floor. In addition, the location was perfect. Will definitely stay here again when we come back to NY!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet location on an upper floor :)

My husband and I stayed at the Kimberly in October of 2012. We reserved a studio suite and when we checked in we were very disappointed. The room was a handicap accessable room on the second floor next to the elevator. There was a loud noise from the multiple a/c units outside of the room and everytime we touched a door knob or light switch we got shocked. The bathroom was horrible with an industrial sink and a shower with just a shower curtain (no tub - just an open area) and no shelves for shampoo, soap, etc. We went back to the check in desk and asked if there were any other rooms available. They were able to upgrade us to an executive one bedroom on the 22nd floor. wow, what a huge difference. The room was magnificent and the bathroom was even better - balcony, walk in shower, huge jacuzzi tub and a wonderfully comfortable king size bed. The room was a little stuffy so we tried to turn on the A/C. It would not come on. So after a call for service, a technician quickly came and discovered the problem and we soon had great climate control. What could have been a horrible hotel stay turned into an outstanding vacation. We were so thankful for the room change that we offered to pay the difference in price and the staff refused. I have read other reviews regarding this particular handicap accessable room at the Kimberly and I agree that it should be advertised differently.

The Kimberly is located in a perfect part of town - close to everything. We will definitely stay here again but learned our lesson regarding the Studio suites.

The Kimberly was the perfect place for our family to stay during a quick overnight in NYC. The suite had TONS of room, was well-maintained and was in the perfect location for sight-seeing.

All of the staff with whom we interacted were professional, friendly and accommodating.

We will definitely return for a longer stay so we can take advantage of the fully-equipped kitchen.

The only downside was the terrible street noise and the over-aggressive heating.

The room was comfortable and spacious, accommodating our party well. We appreciated the clean and convenient kitchen area, which allowed us to relax and enjoy each other's company over breakfast or an evening glass of wine. Very good space for a group traveling together. The linens and towels were of a very good quality.
The down side -- the shower in our room could not be regulated. Each time one of our party used it they emerged with reports of hot water suddenly turning cold or cold water suddenly becoming scalding. A
In spite of this, we enjoyed our stay. Great location, great neighborhood. We will be back.

Just back from a memorable weekend in New York and a wonderful stay at The Kimberly Hotel. The facade is being renovated right now, but from top to bottom, this is what a boutique hotel is all about...great service; location and convenient to area attractions. Parking is right across the street and don't forget to ask for a discount coupon at the hotel's front desk which will dramatically drop the 24 hour weekend rate. The Penthouse for drinks and brunch is spectacular. Highly recommended and hope to come and stay again in the future.

We just returned from our second time staying at the Kimberly, and once again had a great experience. We received a complimentary upgrade to a 2-bedroom suite, which our son really appreciated as he got a real bed instead of a sofabed. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and we all slept very well. We were on the 24th floor, and heard very little street noise. The suite was very clean, spacious, and elegant. We got bagels from the nearby bagel store and ate breakfast in our corner dining nook, admiring the view of the river. That was the only negative about the stay: the toaster was broken and we couldn't toast our bagels.

I'm still amazed that the Kimberly can offer such spacious rooms at such affordable rates. This will always be our first choice of hotels to stay at when we visit NYC.
