We recently stayed at the Michelangelo for five nights on a trip to NYC. We were immediately impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the doormen, bell captain and front desk staff. The hotel itself has an old-world elegance and charm that is reflected in every lovely architectural detail. Our room was spacious, impeccably clean, quiet and beautifully furnished and the king-sized bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was large and inviting. My only criticism of the bathroom was that the harsh overhead pot lighting was horrible for putting on makeup so if this is important to you, bring your own makeup mirror!
We did not have breakfast at the hotel but enjoyed drinks in the serene and beautiful lounge on the main level. Some people might find it a bit dull (it's definitely NOT a party place) but we loved it.
The 51st Street location makes the Michelangelo an IDEAL place from which to explore in any direction. It's a fairly easy walk to Central Park, 5th Avenue shopping, Times Square, the subway, a 24-hour pharmacy, excellent restaurants like Patsy's NYC, fun hangouts like Ellen's Stardust Diner, Broadway shows, Rockefeller Centre, and much more.
Even though it's on the high end of our budget, it's worth the splurge. There is nothing better than stepping into this serene and peaceful retreat after a day spent battling the crowds in frantic, bustling, noisy NYC. On return visits to NYC we will be certain to stay there again.
