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 good. Location perfect, at higher floor the silence is guaranteed.
The only problem is the sofà bed for two people in the executive suite room. It could be good only for two little kids. The bathroom is clean and sufficiently good, but small for four
My trip is coming up shortly but I wanted to write a note specifically regarding the pre arrival service I've received so far, which has been excellent.
I got in touch to confirm my reservation before arriving and so far the service has been fantastic.Not only did I receive fast and friendly responses but I received some great enhancements to my visit all thanks to an amaziing reservation assistant.
I'm really looking forward to my stay and if the pre arrival service is anything to go by my trip will be excellent.
I'll write a review on the hotal stay once my trip is over.
I rarely write reviews for anything, mainly for lack of time. I was impressed with this small boutique hotel and will definitely return. The staff were to a person quite friendly and gracious. The room was fresh, modern, comfortable and in an excellent state of repair. No issues whatsoever. Excellent value in my opinion. Will return.
