Reviewed September 9, 2013

The hotel is very nicely decorated with good sized rooms & bathrooms, spoilt slightly by the ugly view of the brick wall of another building close by; which made the room very dark. This was not helped by the lighting which is provided only by lamps & one of them wasn't working so you had to go into the bathroom to see properly to apply any make-up.

No tea & coffee making facilities in the room; I enquired & was told it was not allowed & that morning coffee was served free in the lobby. Also free internet access which was handy to check the emails whilst drinking my coffee.

I didn't eat in the hotel so can't review the food. Nearby are plenty of coffee shops open for breakfast from 6am which was handy as coffee isn't served until 7.30am in the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a road view the room maybe lighter?

We stayed at the Iroquois while attending a wedding in Midtown. It was ideal. Rooms were small - but hey, this is Manhattan - but very comfortable and quiet. Staff were charming and helpful. This is walking distance to Fifth Ave, theaters, Rockefeller Center and two major subway stations -- Bryant Park and Grand Central. The Algonquin is next door (where Martinis are $22) but reasonably priced restaurants abound and there is a good diner for breakfast just a few doors away. Unfortunately, the bar at the hotel was closed for renovations, depriving our group of a convenient gathering spot, but we worked around it. I have stayed at a number of midtown hotels over the years and I'd go back to The Iroquois.

My adult daughter and I have just returned from a four-day, three-night "girls' trip" to NYC. I used to work at the Rolex Tower, one week a month from Toronto and, on business, would stay at the St. Regis. I confess to have been badly spoiled. On personal trips over the last few years, I have travelled without an expense account and stayed at various hotels in Midtown; however, none has been entirely desirable ... until now! I received a notice from Asia Miles that Small Luxury Hotels have joined the awards program. There was an introductory offer that included bonus miles plus a first-time upgrade. Decided to give it a try at The Iroquois.

What a terrific find! Located on 44th West, between 5th and 6th, it is within a five-minute walk of Times Square, the Theatre District, The Avenue, and shopping on 5th. Our room on the 9th floor faced to the back of the hotel and was wonderfully quiet. We went out daily, from 8 am to Midnight, so view was not important; not hearing the garbage trucks all night was most appreciated.

Lovely Frette Italian linens, Moulton Brown comestibles, deliciously comfortable beds with big puffy duvets and deep pillows, evening turndown service, morning newspaper. Non smoking room was fastidiously clean and odour-free. Complimentary morning coffee in the lobby, to take into the front lounge, and enjoy with the newspaper. Computers available; there is also free wifi throughout the hotel. Lovely front desk, door and concierge staff.

We were not able to get a complimentary upgrade for two separate beds (two doubles in a room are the maximum size available); instead, we were gifted with a bottle of wine and a box of truffles.

This hotel is in a "vintage" row with most buildings dating back to the late 1800s. There are historic plaques on the building fronts that provide architectural details. Also, the street was home to the literati (playwrights, critics, writers, actors and social gossips) of the 1920's: Hemingway, Faulkner, the Marx Brothers. Fascinating history.

New York has become quite an expensive city in the past five years, even more so than London and Paris. The Iroquois is comparable in price to the Hilton Garden Chelsea but oozes charm, class and amenities far beyond.

We'll be back at the first possible opportunity! Thank you for a lovely stay!

If you want to be close to Times Square, and want a smaller, even cozy hotel, this is your place. The staff are really wonderful, genuinely friendly and helpful. The concierge is stellar. The rooms are perfectly nice and clean. Loved the comfy bed. Breakfast was not included, which would have been nice. We ended up at the diner down the street which was not so good and an added expense. Overall I highly recommend this hotel and would love to stay here again.

The Iroquois is a hidden gem. We've stayed there on the same weekend in August for the last 9 years. It has become our home away from home. It's not touristy like the big chains, which we love. Wonderful service, particularly from the doorman, Bill. It's wonderfully clean and well appointed. Super comfy beds. The location is ideal, just a short walk from Times Square, but far enough way from the lights and noise. We look forward to our stay each year and are sad when we leave.

Room Tip: We get a room on either the third or fourth floor and take the stairs, which are extremely well lit...

We stayed here in June while celebrating my 45th birthday and loved it!! The hotel is within walking distance to Times Square, Rockefeller Center,great restaurants and shopping! I love that it was a cool boutique hotel, super clean and good size rooms. We had the James Dean Suite,so we definitely had more room than normal but our friends were in a regular double/double room and it was considerable more spacious than other NYC hotels, The funniest things though were the closets! They were super, SUPER tiny!! We didn't have too much to hang up but the doorway couldn't have been more than 18 inches or so! Another plus.....MOST awesome pillows!!
The concierge was so helpful and check in and out was a breeze. They had a refreshing citrus water in the lobby everyday and coffee in the morning.
I'd absolutely stay here again on any future trip to New York!

Room Tip: If you can afford it, book a suite!! The extra space is such a bonus! Our suites windows faced the s...

My daughter and I just came back from a fabulous 4 day 3 night stay in New York. Our hotel was fantastic! From the hotel staff, to the room, to the location....was beyond our expectations!! It was a birthday trip for my daughter, and on her actual birthday, while we were out, they left a card and a little gift of chocolate covered stawberries ....she was so surprised..what a nice thing for them to do!!! Go to this hotel, 2 blockes from Times Square and 1 block from 5th Avenue. We loved it, will definately go back...(but I think I left a pair of my shoes there).

Room Tip: Call ahead if you need a 2 bed room. They will accomodate you if they can.
