Reviewed June 11, 2014

We stayed in the Kimberly for 4 nights in January 2014. The hotel is well located - far enough away from the tourist spots so you don't get the crowds, but close enough to walk to everything. Our room was a standard double and spacious, clean, and well stocked with coffee (but no regular or herbal tea!) and toiletries. The decor in the room and bathroom were perhaps a little dated and worn, but the space and the cleanliness made up for it. Having a fridge in the room was also really useful, although we did have to unplug it at night as it buzzed loudly. The reception and door staff were friendly, cheerful and helpful. We were disappointed that the roof top bar was not open during the day time as we’d read a lot of reviews about it, although we did have drinks and snacks in the connected bar adjacent to the hotel. It was good, but very pricey. Also a shame there was no complimentary wifi in the rooms. We didn’t eat in the hotel and found plenty of great places nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our favorite was a diner called ‘Bloom’s café’ on Lexington.
Tip: we booked a minibus shared airport transfer on the way there - it was not worth the money and took ages even though we were the first drop off. On the way back to the airport we used the subway and airport express train. It was under $5 each and took half the time as the shared transfer, and the subway station is one block down from the Kimberly so very easy and quick with your luggage.

This hotel is a great value compared to other hotels in the area. The rooms are a good size, and are clean and comfortable. I got upgraded to a suite, which had a small balcony. The bathrooms are very nicely done.

I like that the hotel gives plenty of soap/shampoos and other items. Further, they don't skimp on the towels. Plenty of towels, and they are good quality -- not like some hotels that barely give a small bath towel and a wash cloth.

Staff is very friendly. The only drawback during my stay was that one of the elevators being repaired, so the wait for an elevator was a bit long -- but that situation is supposed to end by mid-June.

Would definitely stay here again.

My daughter and I returned "home" to our 2 bedroom 2 bath suite on the 25th floor. Our 6 nights were worry-free and oh so comfortable. The staff was gracious and helpful as usual. Peter, the concierge, is a real asset. The only disappointments were not being able to use our balcony and having the Upstairs inavailable for breakfast several mornings and having Upstairs closed for a party on our last night , when we were looking forward to drinks and bar food and the view. Really miss the sliders on brioche, which were the best ever. Oh well, next time.

Room Tip: We prefer higher floors but not the floor right beneath the bar.

The hotel is well suited to the business and casual traveler. It is an oasis of calm and quiet in a very noisy city. The housekeepers do a fantastic job of keeping your room and bathroom clean and well stocked with toiletries. I can't say enough good things about the doormen. From early morning to midnight, they were unfailingly cheerful, helpful and just wonderful gentlemen. We ate at Noir, and this restaurant is a jewel. It is elegant, romantic, and the food is fabulous.

There's no such thing as perfect. And that would be boring anyway. But The Kimberly Hotel was as close to perfect for me as it comes. From the moment I first contacted with booking, to the last good-bye, I was more than happy.

I've lived overseas and been to more hotels than I can count. Many in the lavish Middle East Dubai and Bahrain.

The Kimberly did not disappoint.

I first chose The Kimberly because they had a balcony. For smokers with non-smokers, this is a life-saver. The balcony was spectacular! Great views from 30E. The building you are seeing is even more historic than the Chrysler Building. It is the 1931 Art Deco original RCA, later GE building with architectural lightning bolts and radio waves.

The door staff was stellar. The front desk staff was stellar. The room service staff was stellar. The housekeeping staff was stellar.

Full disclosure: My name is Kimberly. They gave me a sumptuous Kimberly Hotel Robe. Just because my name is Kimberly. How cool is that?

I arrived early and was hoping to store my luggage but I was checked in early by a very polite and accomodating staff. Everyone, from the front desk, maintenance, housekeeping, concierge and doorman were great. We ate at Noir and the food and service were excellent . The rooftop bar is beautiful and the most pricey part of the trip. It caters to a different crowd and some of the bar personnel really held on to that "persona" But the hosts and the BOH staff we saw were extremely friendly. There were reviews which said it was dated, but I thought it was great. If you are looking for ultra modern ad sleek, maybe this is not the property for you. But if you want afforadable with plenty of room( and REAL dishes and flatware!) then coem for a stay in one of the suites .

Nice room with lots of amenities (2 double beds). The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Pretty good location. AC did not work properly the first night and I later found out that the heating coils had not been removed, so the AC could not get the air out. Not much sleep that night, which was fairly frustrating for a moderately high priced room. The bed was very firm and not as plush as I expected. No view. It was a very quiet room (5G) which was important to me. Stay clear of the restuarant next door. In room dining one evening and after the maid service the following day, the prior evening dishes were still in the room.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view and quiet,make that request.
