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
I STRONGLY DISCOURAGE ANY TRAVELER FRIM BOOKING HERE. We reserved a room for two nights here via Travelocity. My mother made the reservation back in April and soon after we realized we only needed one night. She contacted Travelocity who tried for 10 DAYS to reach the management of the hotel, who finally answered their multiple requests with “no.” I tried again to cancel the second night when I checked in, and was told the manager would call me when he got to the hotel. That was last night, it’s 10am the next day - nothing. The lobby is seedy and tiny, the rooms aren’t cleaned until after 4pm.
Such a perfect spot to stay in the city- rooms are spacious and clean and decorated well. Mini bar is awesome! We especially appreciated the incredible customer service offered to us by Mike! He was gracious and available for anything that we needed. Thanks for making the stay a memorable one!
This hotel's owner Matt and their door man/reception Luis were so helpful and hospitable. My wife and I arrived in New York from the Midwest with an Airbnb booked right next to a barber shop in Greenwich Village. It turns out the owner had been evicted and was lying to Airbnb, and our reservation made months in advance was unaffected by this update. We got the short end of the stick and had to deal with Airbnb/former owner on the phone for about an hour on the street after arriving to an apartment with an eviction notice on it and keys that didnt work. The barber, Geno came out of his shop to ask us what was going on since we were on the sidewalk with all our luggage. After listening to our story, he offered to call one of his clients who owns hotels in Manhattan (Matt), and Matt responded immediately to Geno and offered us a discount rate at hotel 32 32. It made a difficult situation completely 180. Upon arrival, Luis helped us after Matt contacted him and we were all set. His help and friendliness made the stay even better. The hotel was fantastic, not too big of a building with a responsive elevator and a very spacious room which included a kitchenette. The neighborhood was fantastic and had plenty of great food and sites to see. It was easy to get anywhere in Manhattan from the hotel either by walking or cab/train. We will be staying here again for our next visit to NYC. This hotel deserves your business.
The desk staff are great really helpful and quick to act when any complaints. The room is small the bathroom was ok bottom of the walls in the shower had broken loose tiles and didn't look like the pictures nor did the room. there are 2 hotel 32 32 one across the road from the other I wonder if the other hotel was the one with a garden view. the balcony was small and looked onto other buildings (offices) and look down onto grotty concrete NO garden. The bed was done every day and was very comfortable and bins emptied but had to ask for towels as the hadn't been replaced a couple of times. There was no breakfast and fridge goods were expensive and even the bottle of water by the bed wasn't complementary and was $3.50 for the small bottle. There is a cafe/ bakery right next door which was handy, we ate there every morning great bagels with fresh cooked fillings and was cheap around $10 for both of us. The hotel was in a good position easy walk anywhere really and a couple of nice bars nearby to end your evening. I don't want to slam the place completely it wasn't bad just the pictures are a bit misleading. I dare say some rooms do look like that but certainly not all of them and I think for a little more could have booked the Roosevelt which is more central and rooms more spacious.
I would like to thank you for the very good stay that me and my husband had there on march, and for the great customer service provided by your doormen, specially from Luis, who was always very helpful and quick to solve problems. But everyone was very helpful, so, because of that (and the good breakfast as well), I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again next time I'm in New York.
The negative points were: the bed is not very comfortable and when we got there it was a different bed than we asked for (queensize). However, Luis gave us a discount on our stay because of that. We also didn't like the cleaning. The maid just changed the towells and personal hygiene items daily, but didn't take out the trash frequently enough and didn't sweep the room everyday. After three days, she just didn't do any of those things.
That's it. Thank you and I hope to stay with you again in a near future.
gostaria de agradecer pela boa estada que tivemos ai (eu e meu marido), no mes de março, e pelo otimo atendimento, por parte de seus porteiros, especialmente o luis, sempre prestativo e resolvendo tudo rápido. mas, todos foram muito gentis e solicitos. por isso, em uma proxima ida a nova york, nao hesitaria em me hospedar com vcs de novo. tbm pelo bom cafe da manhã.
os pequenos senoes são: a cama nao é muito confortavel (e nao foi a que pedimos, queen size; contudo, luis nos deu um desconto na taxa de estadia, por conta disso); e a limpeza nao era bem feita. a empregada apenas trocou as toalhas e itens de higiene e arrumou a cama diariamente, mas deixou acumular lixo e nao varria o quarto todos os dias. depois de tres dias, isso simplesmente deixou de acontecer.
é isso. obrigado. e espero estar com vcs num futuro proximo
