A brand new entry to the Midtown hotel scene, the Executive Hotel Le Soleil opened its 22-floor tower in August 2015, an East Coast sister property to the original Le Soleil, in Vancouver. The spacious suites are large by city standards (starting at 300 square feet) and have stylish flourishes without giving up a button-down utility. All accommodations feature ample work space, Keurig coffeemakers and down pillows and duvets for peaceful slumber. The bathrooms pamper guests with Italian-based Acca Kappa products, marble countertops and plush robes and slippers, while the 24-hour fitness center helps keep business travelers stay on track anytime. Some rooms on the upper floors feature commanding city views of the nearby Empire State Building and, far downtown, One World Trade Center. The hotel’s restaurant and bar setup is still in the works; expect a full-service operation (including room service) to come online in early 2016. Until then a lobby-level espresso/pastry bar can get you caffeinated for your morning meetings.
In the Area
Located in the heart of Midtown, the Executive Le Soleil NYC is as centrally located as can be. It’s surrounded by the attractions and energy of the city’s most tourist-friendly neighborhood, just a few blocks from the theater district, Bryant Park, Times Square and the shopping near Herald Square (home of the vast original Macy’s) and along Fifth Avenue. Grab dinner and a nightcap at Keen’s (a storied New York steakhouse) or hop over a few blocks to chef April Bloomfield’s trendy bar/eatery at the Breslin. Koreatown is a few blocks away; try Mandoo Bar for dumplings or Gagopa for late night karaoke.
How to Get There
The hotel is very well located, nice view, efficient staff (but for sorting out my wifi pb - I could access the wifi on my phone from everywhere in NY BUT my hotel room, very frustrating), lots of places to eat and drink nearby, easy from penn station. All good
I was expecting more about it. Since the moment of check in I found the employees kind of unpleasant.
The room was so small with an awful view
They didn’t prepare the room as we requested
The room cleaning was so poor
Never replaced the snacks of minibar
The location is ok
I definitely won’t come back
This hotel offered extremely great service. The staff are very pleasant especially Yadira Aviles, she made us very comfortable and met all our demands and was extremely welcoming. She made sure we stayed in rooms that suited our needs. I would highly recommend booking with her.
My favorite hotel in NYC. Very relaxing. I have to come into NYC for business, but my wife comes along, and we have a great time. But the best part is always coming back to Hotel Le Soleil. It's a little escape from the city.
Had a wonderful stay here during the recent snow storm in NYC. The hotel was extremely accommodating on such short notice. Great size room, warm service and conveniently located. Can’t ask for much more!!
