“Excellent Hotel/Suites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

Our road trip began in New York and we were very pleased with the Kimberley. Spacious suites complete with small kitchen area. Really comfy queen beds. Staff helpful. Breakfasts on the penthouse terrace absolutely stunning (the views) and very reasonably priced for residents. I would definitely book this hotel again.

I looked for a package deal with air and hotel and chose the Kimberly. The location was excellent, just south east of Central Park, and the room (2 double beds-travelling with a friend) was perfect..we had breakfast on the top floor on the second day and it was perfect. The rooftop bar/dining room has movable glass panels and can be opened to the stars. What a setting! Staff and concierge were very helpful. I'd stay there again for sure, and have already recommended to another friend.

Pretty good choice if you are looking for a spacious midtown accommodation, within about a mile of Central Park on one side and Times Square on the other, a convenient position for visiting several of Manhattan's museums. All suites are spacious and include a fully furbished kitchen and plenty of storage space. Service is quite good, less impersonal than in bigger hotels, and frankly I could not find any obvious faults (we were aware of the works currently taking place in the building, which did not cause any trouble). Nice view from the rooftop terrace. Relatively good price too.

Room Tip: Of course if you don't mind a bit of extra noise you can ask for a room above say 10th floor wit...

What a little gem! The suites are fantastic - everything you need. The little kitchenette is beautifully stocked with every appliance - even a dishwasher. The gym onsite is convenient. The people working at the front desk could not have been nicer. The only drawback was that the bathroom was a little small. We look forward to coming back here. It will definitely be our "go to" place in NYC.

Although the Kimberly is currently undergoing renovation, this did not affect our stay. The location could not be more convenient to major attractions such as theater and shopping. Our room was spacious with a luxurious King bed, modern bathroom, large flat-screen TV, robes and slippers. The staff is attentive with friendly doormen. Although we did not have breakfast at their rooftop venue, it has wonderful 30th floor views of the city and is open in the evening for cocktails.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upgrade. It was offered to us without asking! Rooms on the street side are noisier.

The hotel was well-located. They are in the middle of construction with dust everywhere. 19 floors up & we could still hear the traffic!
Check-in at 3pm took 1 1/2 hrs because our room wasn't ready. Once in, the room was huge except for the bathroom. It was so small that you could barely close the door.
One day, we came back at 4 & the room was still not cleaned.
Overall, I would consider staying again. The restaurant upstairs has a great view and the management was fairly responsive to the issues we had.

Very cool rooftop lounge. We found it very noisy the night we visited. Staff was very pleasant and the city views were impressive. Drinks were well priced and it was walking distance to 5th Avenue shopping.
