Ideal Mid Town Manhattan location.between Park and Lexington. Spacious suites (large bedroom + separate lounge) with kitchens / kitchenettes. Each apartment individually furnished and ideal base for a couples or business visits NY. Friendly and most helpful staff for a home to home for regular visitors to NY.

This boutique hotel, a stone's throw from Manhattan's swankiest East Side shopping district, offers rooms owned by upscale clients who are out of town. Astonishingly spacious 900 square- foot suites are available for less than much dinkier rooms at better known chains.

The room that I had in the hotel was bigger than my apartment in Zurich. It was impeccably furnished. The hotel has one of the best wifi signals I have ever had and as a business traveler, this made life much easier. The service is excellent. I hope to stay here again.

We loved the Lombardy. Great mid-town location (56th and Lexington) -- close to subway, Central Park, walking distance to Times Square, 5th Ave shopping, the "big" Macy's, etc., but nice, quiet residential vibe in neighbourhood. We paid what a nice mid-range hotel would cost, and we got a lovely apartment, with a full-sized living room, dining room, kitchen, as well as a huge bedroom with an ensuite. Comfortable king-sized bed, high-quality linens. This is obviously someone's deluxe apartment, yet it has all the amenities of a hotel. Great service, friendly and helpful staff, very clean and well-equipped.

Room Tip: Rooms with two queens are not as readily available as those with a king.

We got 2 suites. Asked 1 month in advance to get adjacent rooms but got two on the same floor. The sofa is impossible to sleep in, had to get an extra bed, but was provided for free. One of the rooms had many technical problems and no internet reception. After insisting to talk to the manager we were transferred to another room which was much better. The difference between rooms was unbelievable. This hotel has very good location, but you have to be lucky to get a good room or check everything first. There wasn't supposed to be breakfast, but they give you a 5$ worth credit in a nearby restaurant which you can use. Not a very good restaurant !

We loved our stay at the Lombardy--the rooms are very large, and very quiet. Our room had a small separate kitchen which had a sink, a microwave, a 3/4 size fridge, toaster, kettle, coffee maker and dishes. There were even wine glasses.

The room was very large, with a walk in closet. There were two comfy chairs, and a table with chairs for dining. Bed was very comfortable.

The Lombardy is located on a quiet side street, but is within easy walking distance to the south east corner of Central Park, and 5th Avenue. The nearest subway is 5 minutes away.

The hotel provided us with vouchers for breakfast at an off site restaurant, the Mid Town restaurant (which I have reviewed separately). The voucher entitles you to $5 per person off their menu, which on our first trip, meant a $6 tab for two people. You can also have your breakfast delivered to your room for free.

The Lombardy has no on-site parking, but there is parking available a block away for $33 a day.

I was impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel--this was a mother daughter trip, and my daughter is very into yoga and stretches and the end of a day. She had plenty of room to do all of that while keeping out of my way. It was also really nice to have snacks around 5 in the room before we set out for dinner.

Room Tip: As I understand it, all the rooms are separately owned and look different.

This place was comparable to a hotel room BUT you get to be in a luxury condo with all the amenities of home. The staff were excellent and the parking was very reasonable with valet services. The location is excellent (56th and Lex) and the subways are near and convenient. A great place to stay over 3 days in my opinion
