Small in scale (each floor has six guestrooms at most) but big on space (even the standard rooms cover 300 square feet), the boutique property doesn’t need to hang New York kitsch on its walls — this hotel embodies the city. A glass elevator carries guests up and down the property’s 15 David Rockwell–designed floors, which are decorated with pieces from the hotel’s 500-piece collection of work by New York artists.
Bed & Bath
Airy and light-drenched, guestrooms mimic the design and vibe of an artist’s loft, with platform beds, glass-topped architect desks and original artwork on the walls. And should inspiration strike, pencils and a Rhodia sketchbook are at the ready in the minibar. Cavernous bathrooms feature waterfall showers with adjustable pressure and grand tubs set against mosaic-tile walls. The custom-made turquoise sea soap is so addictive, former guests have been known to stop by the hotel just to buy a few bars.
The lobby level sees two offerings from star chef David Chang. Momofuku Milk Bar serves sweet treats with kitschy names: Cereal Milk (made to taste like that last slurp of milk in your childhood bowl) and Compost Cookies (an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink concoction) are among the most popular items on the menu. For dinner, visit Chang’s restaurant Má Pêche, featuring a New American menu and expertly mixed cocktails.
In the Area
Located on 56th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, the hotel is nearly equidistant from the Museum of Modern Art and Central Park. A short walk in any direction takes you somewhere desirable, whether it’s west to a performance at Carnegie Hall, up Madison or Fifth for high-end designer shopping, or south to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Bryant Park.
How to Get There
Very tasteful and luxury finishes, large rooms and the most friendly helpful staff. The location is percect, right behind central park and walking distance to the hustle and bustle of Times Square. NY accommodation can be pricey and this is amazing value with an art elegance suitable for people with dogs too. We will be back!!! Wine hour and breaky included too.
We stayed for one night with our 3 children on a long layover. The room was beautiful... so many little touches!! But more importantly the hospitality was amazing!!! The staff was wonderful and helpful.
How many people you know post about the shower? Well, Chambers not only is a great location with great restaurants and food places right there--Il Tunello, Joe's Shanghai, Bread and Butter, Japanese market, Armani, etc but IT HAS THE BEST SHOWER YOU WILL EVER HAVE IN YOUR LIFE. Good Continental breakfast--so so wine for happy hour--but nice sitting area. Air conditioning that WORKS. and best location. Across from Whitby--great bar and beautiful restaurant for lunch/brunch--but more expensive. Depends on what you want to spend. I had room with the terrace--and enjoyed my breakfast every morning with the sounds of NYC! But, the shower--did I mention it was the BEST shower ever?
So de have been here for 2 nights, we have 2 more to go. It has a privileged location. The room is amazing just like its view. The only thing that doesnt work for us was the breakfast. Just too small for everyone. Really crowded, and if you dont go early there are things that are over. Also there is no one attending to keep tables clean, we has to eat with the dishes of the previous guests eating there. I know it is continental, but you have to be prepared for all the people and for all the time you are Serving breakfast. Put something for us to put away our dirty dishes. And, the same lady ranking care of the food put the trash away, I really hope she changed gloves.
Stayed here for 4 nights - myself, husband, and two boys. We got the king suite with a pullout couch. The room was a good size for NYC. The room configuration is a bit odd - big bathroom and a long hallway - that made it feel a little tight for 4 of us but it was fine. The service was great - housekeeping is really special here, they were so kind to our kids and just did a great job. The location is excellent - we wanted to be close to everything but we did not want to be right in Times Square. There is a tiny gym that I was very happy with. We aren't huge breakfast people and what they had (cereal, baked goods, yogurt, granola, fruit) was just right. There is not a bar or restaurant in the hotel but highly recommend the Whitby's hotel bar right across the street.
