Balconies and kitchenettes aren’t elements you’d typically associate with a boutique Manhattan sleep, but a stay at this trendy Murray Hill property guarantees you at least one (and, in some cases, both) of those homey perks. Even the sun-drenched rooms aren’t the classic cramped quarters synonymous with the Big Apple, though the extra square footage comes at a cost: this hotel completely sacrifices a lobby in favor of your roomier chambers. Comic book- and graffiti-inspired paintings by resident artist Chris Georgalas, a Colombian-American creator with roots in nearby Jackson Heights who has been characterized as a modern-day Duchamp, fuel a distinctly urban ambience (originals are available for sale at the front desk). It’s just one of the myriad ways this four-star gem establishes a meaningful connection with its dynamic Midtown surroundings. Be sure to schedule a session with one of the friendly onsite concierges to skip the serpentine lines you might encounter elsewhere for city bus tours, Broadway shows, museum visits, and helicopter rides.
In the Area
Bold-faced landmarks like The Empire State Building, Penn Station, Grand Central Station, and Times Square are practically in your backyard. Lesser-known but worthy attractions near the Flatiron-Murray Hill neighborhood include The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology and its rotating door of international textiles curated by historian Valerie Steele, the decidedly friskier Museum of Sex (guests must be at least 18 years or older to enter), and a cluster of design emporiums such as Marimekko and ABC Carpet & Home. Be sure to reserve one hedonistic evening for nearby Koreatown, an energetic neighborhood lined with barbecue joints, karaoke bars, and round-the-clock spas.
How to Get There
The hotel is really well located.
The personnel was nice and there's always somebody around.
However, the hotel has no facilities. No lobby, no restaurant, no shared areas, no vending machines or whatever. You are simply booking a room well located in Manhattan. I don't understand how this hotel could be a four star hotel with such little services. The AC is the room is old, manual and makes some noise. My last point is the price. It's definitely too expensive for what you get i.e just room in NY and the room looks much better on the website than in reality.
Staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean/comfortable. Also a very convenient location. Rooms were average size, but lots of options for closet and the balcony was a plus. Nothing negative to say!
I love this hotel and I will stay here again next time I come to New York. My husband, 4 month old, and I found it to be super homey, comfy, conveniently located, and clean, with great service. Oh, and great views and cool art! Comfy bed, which is important because husband has a bad back. Upon checkin, they saw that I had a stroller, and they were sweet enough to upgrade us to a room with a big refrigerator so that we could more easily keep his milk cold, etc. We had a great time!
Great location near subway, with window and a tiny balcony (no seating), and staff very nice and responsive, appreciated that! But bottom line the wireless internet did not work well and was not dependable, and I spent 4 days very frustrated by that, not able to get work done which unfortunately is unacceptable for being on a business trip or for anyone needing to be connected!!
This small hotel was good value for central location. Close to Penn Station,Madison Square Gardens,Empire State building. Lots of good restaurants close by. Good bed,clean up to date bathroom,convenient kitchenette.
