“Recommended location.”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We stayed at The Moderne for five nights at the end of June and were very impressed.
The location is absolutely perfect for any tourists visiting NYC as it is in the heart of the theatre district a short walk from Central Park, Times Square and Hells Kitchen.
Don't be put off by the outside view of the entrance which was rather underwhelming compared with the impression that the photos on their website gave us. Once inside you are introduced to an interior designers magic, which may not be to everybody's personal taste, but you can not fault their efforts. On the 1st floor there is a lounge area where complementary refreshments are available 24/7 including cakes and fruit. All of the communal areas were clean and well maintained, the only criticism we had was that they have the slowest elevator in NYC, if not the world!
Our room was non-smoking with a king-size bed and en-suite bathroom. The room was spotlessly clean and was serviced everyday with fresh towels and linen. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in - which is a great complement from me as I have recently had back surgery and struggle to sleep at the best of times. The mini-bar fridge in the room had ample space for you to put your own refreshments in. The in-room safe comfortably fitted our iPads, etc and there was plenty of room to store your clothes in the closet and chest of drawers. The room had a large flat screen TV with 30+ channels, iPod dock and complementary wi-fi which represents a considerable saving when you take into consideration what some hotels are charging daily for wi-fi ($15+). The view from our hotel window was of the rear of another building which isn't unusual for smaller buildings (below 10 floors) in NYC, however I'm sure if we had requested a room with a street view they would have done their best to accommodate us.
Well placed, well priced and well looked after - what more can you ask for?

Stayed at the Moderne the first few days of July. Wonderful location: close to subway, Central Park, Times Square, etc. location can't be beat. Service was great. Kind, helpful, friendly. Loved the rooms. AC worked great. Very clean and funky decor. Comfy beds too. Came for my sisters birthday and when we checked in there were 6 mini cupcakes and a note in our room. Such a thoughtful gesture. Price is right too. Great find for this area.

We had two room here for one and two nights after our wedding. The service was wonderful. Because one room requested two beds and they didn't have it available, we were automatically upgraded before we even arrived. Reinaldo went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for us- and always with a smile. All of the front desk staff were very helpful. the rooms were extremely clean and stylish and excellent for the price we paid. Free coffee 24/7. Walking distance to Times square and central park. Excellent value with excellent staff. Thanks Reinaldo for making our stay so wonderful!

I've stayed at probably over a dozen hotels in New York, and this was one of the better ones I've stayed in recently. It's not luxurious, but it's stylish and a great value, especially for business travelers given the hotel's excellent rates and free and fast wifi!

LOCATION: If you need to be in Midtown/Upper West Side, it's conveniently located right off Broadway and a few blocks from Central Park. It's easy to get around the neighborhood and a safe area for solo female travelers if you're walking alone at night.

ROOM: My room seemed very recently redone, and quite nice. It was a standard (small) size for New York City, but the layout felt spacious for one and would have been comfortable enough for two. The bed was huge and quite comfortable and the furniture/decor was stylish and lived up to the hotel's name! My only complaint was that the air conditioning was FREEZING and kept turning back on after I had turned it off. Luckily, the hotel provides a fluffy robe!

BATHROOM: The bathroom was sparkling clean and modern, though just enough space for one. The water pressure was excellent. The storage space was minimal; I had nowhere to put my toiletry bags, but this is typical in New York.

STAFF: The staff was friendly and helpful with giving directions. I only stayed for one night and checked out early in the morning, so I did not encounter housekeeping, but the room was very clean.

AMENITIES: The best amenity was the wifi, which was not only free, but also quite fast.

OVERALL: I have no major complaints, and I'd happily stay again! It's not part of a major chain, so you won't earn rewards, but if you're looking for a good deal in this part of town, you can't go wrong with the Moderne.

Chose this off of others reviews and it was just as they said. Great place and location. The staff was VERY
helpful - stayed 5 nights and knew all their faces by the time we left. Loved the little lobby on 2 for ice water, coffee, hot chocolate and fresh fruit. Only 2nd time to NYC but coming again in Aug. and will book again.

Room Tip: Had a room with double beds on the back side and was very quiet!!

Pros:
1) excellent location
2) cute and modern hotel
3) good professional service
4) very well-cleaned
5) everything new and in tip top shape
6) our room was spacious
Cons:
1) small bathroom
2) our room did not have any windows
** note that the cons for us were no biggies since we were rarely there - it's not a beach resort, after all.
Conclusion: considering the average rates in NYC, this is a gem!

First stay at The Moderne Hotel in NYC.....must agree with the other reviews. Very nice, clean hotel. I had a huge room...probably would have been considered a suite elsewhere in NYC. King bed, couch, mini fridge, flat screen and beautiful bathroom. I was on the 4th floor, room overlooked 55th Street which was very noisy. Select another "view" if you want quiet. Didn't use the lounge area , except to get some water.
Hotel lobby is very small and unimpressive and elevator is old and small and slow.....but the room was very modern and comforting.

Only complaint is that when I checked in there was no offer of help with luggage and no bellman...also big no no for a hotel...my wake up call NEVER came in the morning!! Upon check out, there was baggage help and he even walked me to the corner to hail me a cab. I would definitely stay here again if the price is right.

Room Tip: Choose room wisely and mention to them if you want a quiet location. Rooms facing 55th street are NO...
