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
Great location for Holiday shopping, sightseeing. Close to Empire State Bldg and subway if your up to it. Walkable to Rockefeller Center again if your up to it. Great location for eating or sightseeing.
Hotel LeSoleil is a lovely boutique hotel in a great location! There were several good restaurants very close to the hotel. Part of our trip was to see the Macy's Thanksgiving parade. The parade passed 1/2 block from the hotel and the crowd was not large so we had a great view. The room was small but very well appointed and well suited for 2 people. We will definitely stay again!
Great stay at this hotel. The whole experience has been good from start to finish. Yadira was so helpful when sorting out my original online reservation, and all the staff have been friendly and very helpful once at the hotel.
It is very well situated for getting around New York. The rooms are good and very clean, we were on 19th floor so quiet too. Breakfast was great, and busy friendly bar at night. My only small criticism is the small amount of hanging and drawer space in room.
Would definitely stay again if back in New York and will recommend to friends too.
The hotel is clean and the employees are friendly and discreet. The rooms are very well decorated. Great location and the room service is super fast. There are also lots of restaurants and retail stores around the area. Overall an exceptional experience.
Good location of the hotel with walking distance to central places. Nice service. We think the room was very small. We were two girlfriends who traveled and it was difficult to put our stuff and suitcases. We also think the breakfast was pricey and bad, but hotel was a good option for our trip.
