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
This hotel is very clean and well appointed. It is centrally located, although the neighborhood is still a bit in transition around it. The rooms on the upper floors are better so you get a view and a bit more space.
Great staff, beautiful hotel, great bedding, wine & cucumber water at check in. It's conveniently located in midtown & close to the theatre district & restaurants. There's an attached restaurant & bar, though I found the drinks overpriced for the size.
Unbeatable location, very friendly and efficient staff, room cleaning very correct, the only downside was to use a room with an extra bed that was not at all comfortable. For one night, no problem, but for five nights as has been our stay, it has not been the best solution.
Localitzacio immillorable, personal molt amable i eficient, neteja de les habitacions molt correcte, la unica pega ha estat utilitzar una habitació amb llit pleglabe supletori que no era gens comode. Per una nit, cap problema, però per cinq nits com ha estat la nostra estada, no ha sigut la millor solució.
Great location, close to Times Square.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and great at answering our questions.
Rooms are small but updated, but who spends a lot of time in their room in NYC? Highly recommend this hotel.
Good location in the fashion district, walking distance to subway stations, times square and restaurants. Nice big modern rooms that are well maintained and clean. Comfortable beds. Excellent staff from the front desk to the bell boy
