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
Lovely, good value hotel, close to Macy’s. Lots of restaurants nearby, especially the good Irish bar, The Keg Room and the Tio Pio West which we visited everyday for breakfast. Rooms are standard size, but lacks wardrobe space, however, manageable for our trip.
We flew into NYC with one day to recover from international jet lag. The hotel staff accommodated us with graciousness, preparing us a room as soon as possible.
From doorman “Jaime” that stored our luggage , recommended places to eat and arranged airport shuttle service, to the friendly tint desk staff that made us feel welcomed and special by efficiently preparing our room, doubling our points as executive members and fetching a bandaid for a blistered toe, we have always had a positive experience that will encouragre is to seek “Le Soleil”
Wherever we travel!

Great location and friendly and helpful staff made our first visit to The States a positively memorable one. Big thanks to Keron on the door and Lilly on the Desk for all your help. Hope to be back one day!
Had a great time. The staff was great and helpful. Comfortable room and spacious. Didn't even feel like I was in midtown. Great location with easy access. Enjoyed the food and service in the restaurant.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel along with three other couples for a weekend out on the town. I usually look for and find negative things to say and write about places I've been to. This time was an exception! From the service ,to the staff, to the rooms(size and decor) this place was magnificent. I speak for all the couples because they too feel the same way and are looking forward to staying there in the very near future. Compliments to the management!
