4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2011

I randomly got to this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised. In my previous visit I stayed in the Sofitel and the one before in the Waldorf Astoria. The room at the Lombardy is a lot better than both hotels. The other hotels have restaurants and some services that the Lombardy misses, but it's Manhattan, I don't really need a restaurant in the hotel.

I was in Lombardy from April 13 to April 22.
In this time the hotel was perfect.
All the staff is very friendly, helpful and I didnt have any trouble like the stay in September that I described here.

Condo/Hotel where the owners' rooms/aprartments are rented when they are not there. Huge rooms for the City, expecially the suites which are fabulous apartments with balconies. Quietest hotel I have ever been in in New York. Faced the rear and never heard a siren all week.

Room Tip: Upgrade if possible

Very well kept property with a convenient, quiet location. Close to the subway, but definitely within walking distance of the heart of the city. Would definitely stay at this property again!

We stayed at the Lombardy Hotel on March 23rd. We requested a room with two queen beds and assumed this property met the standards of other Preferred Hotels we have stayed at throughout the years. Unfortunately it was not. To say our room was disappointing is an understatement; a dump is a more appropriate description. We were given a room with filthy furniture, dirty carpeting, and two double-sized cots, arranged so the foot of each bed almost touched one another. It was more like a barracks than a hotel room. When I asked the front desk to be moved to another room, they told me that they had nothing else available. DO NOT STAY AT THIS PROPERTY.

I have stayed in many rooms at the Lombardy and I am still a fan, but I was disspointed in the studio I stayed in this last time.

The bathroom door paint was mostly chipped off and the wood was all decayed at the bottom of the bathroom sink.

Additionally, the a/c, though funcioning looked really beaten up and about to fall apart.

I think a lot of it has to do with the individual owners, but the hotel needs to do a better job enforcing making sure the rooms are decent.

However, the space to price to location ratio is still hard (if not impossible to beat.

The Lombardy is a charming hotel with a lot of personality in a great location in Midtown (no view, though). It's in a perfect location for shopping. The room was surprisingly large for NYC and very clean. There was even a mini-fridge and microwave, and plenty of closet space. The hotel staff was polite and helpful when needed. The room had wired internet which worked well, although wireless would have been preferable. The room offered a great night's sleep -- this was one of the quietest hotels I've ever stayed in.
