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
Good location, lovely room although quite small. Staff all very friendly. Bar closes about 11 so don’t expect a night cap there after an evening out because you’ll be told ‘we’re closed!’
Didn’t eat there so can’t comment on the food.
The location is unbeatable. 2 blocks from 34th st subway station and PATH to New Jersey where Korean town and Macy’s can satisfy all your dining and shopping needs. 10 minutes walk from Penn station to take the train to Long Island. There’s no better location to be in NYC. I used to live in the area and that’s why I chose this place the first time I returned to the city for business.
The service is great too. I emailed them for a copy of the receipt and they got back to me in hours.
Highly recommend for trips to NYC no matter for business or leisure.
From the front desk, to the doormen, to the maintenance guys and maids all were top notch #1. Had an early flight to NYC from Florida got to Penn station and walked a couple blocks to hotel my wife and I. Figured we would drop our luggage at hotel and go walking until check in time, but no they insisted we go to our room at 11:00 am and get settled, Awesome! The front desk was at all times helpful and helpful with a smile. The two doormen were great and very knowledgeable, sent us to some great places to eat and easy directions to where we wanted to go. Ran into the maintenance guys in elevator asked where the computer room was and he personally took me there. The hotel was super clean, the room was great just what we needed and always had a clean fresh room. The location was perfect walk to time square, central park and the big red bus on the corner. Could not be more impressed with this hotel and will definitely be back.
