Originally opened in 1929 as the Governor Clinton Hotel, the Stewart Hotel combines historic New York architecture with contemporary style. Designed by Rottet Studio, the grand two-story lobby pairs the building’s original coffered ceilings and carved bronze elevators with a cylindrical chandelier that mimics the topography of Manhattan’s skyline, and emerald-green velvet lounges that are both seating area and abstract sculpture. Huge graphic floral prints, a nod to the nearby Flower District, create accent walls in the 618 airy white guest rooms, which have pops of coral and chartreuse. The 313 studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and terrace suites, designed by the Rockwell Group and completed in March 2012, are ideal for longer stays and for families, thanks to spacious layouts (up to 950 square feet) and kitchens with convection ovens, stovetops and mini-fridges. Located right off the main entrance, the Niles NYC restaurant dishes up classic American fare in a bustling dining room. Burn off your meal at the 24-hour fitness center, which offers treadmills, ellipticals, free weights and a guest laundry, or break a sweat with the free FitKit, which includes a yoga mat and workout DVDs.
In the Area
Catch a Knicks game or a concert at Madison Square Garden, directly across the street. For a break of greenery in the concrete jungle, walk the Flower District on 28th Street, or stroll along the High Line, a historic railroad that has been turned into an elevated public park on the West Side. Fashionistas will swoon over the Museum at FIT, which houses a collection of 50,000 garments from the 18th century to the present. Spend an afternoon browsing the art galleries in Chelsea, particularly Pace, Gladstone and Tanya Bonakdar.
How to Get There
The Stewart is an average at best hotel with super high prices. The room was "meh" nothing special-very bland. I even upgraded to the studio suite. Very old and dated - A/C unit is in the window - sad if you ask me.
The pics over-inflate the property. Never again, got hoodwinked.
My husband and I came into the city to see Billy Joel perform at Madison Square Garden. We decided to stay at the Stewart because it is right across the street from MSG.
First impression of the hotel is how clean and modern the lobby is. Andrew the manager that day checked us in. Check-in was smooth and Andrew was so kind and hospitable.
Andrew asked us where we were from and what brought us to town. We told him about the concert and he brought me over to the gift shop which was well stocked with treats, drinks, wine and champagne. Andrew gave us a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy before the concert!! Which was amazing! Then, Andrew upgraded us to the most beautiful room I’ve ever stayed in and it had a balcony!!!! The room was huge with a kitchen, separate bedroom, living room and dining area. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. I didn’t want to go to the concert...I just wanted to drink my wine on the balcony all night.
I would absolutely recommend staying at the Stewart. The hotel is beautiful and the location is perfect.
Thank you so much to Andrew for making our stay at your hotel unforgettable!

We had a great stay for 3 nights at the Stewart Hotel. When we checked in was welcomed by Christina who was very helpful and professional - she kindly upgraded us to a suite due to us travelling for a special birthday. Even though we where only here for a few days the extra space in the room was appreciated had 2 bathrooms - lounge kitchen and bedroom - not much more we could ask for.
Hotel is centrally located and very easy to navigate by Subway, Foot, Taxi or Rail.
However how big or small our questions where Jenny was always on front desk to support and go over beyond to accommodate us. She was always smiling and made the whole experience very accommodating, she recommended "Benjamin Steakhouse" for his 30th Birthday she called up before hand to make the reservation on our behalf. Jenny even went to the extra mile and arranged a birthday cake for my partner - as the one I arranged got cancelled last minute.
For 2 days we had breakfast in the hotel restaurant "Niles" service was great and food was delicious and reasonably priced.
If you get the chance to stay at this hotel - dont' turn it down - you will have great service in a great location.
Stayed here for 5 nights. Sent a message via Facebook a couple of months before we arrived with a couple of queries and a request for a high up floor. I was speaking to Lisseth who was extremely friendly and helpful and organised for us to be upgraded which was a great surprise and bonus. When we arrived we checked in with Ryan who was very friendly and helpful. The room itself was perfect, it had everything we needed for our stay including a fridge, kettle, cooker and lots of cutlery. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were cleaned to a high standard each day. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting New York and are looking for a central base with friendly staff. It is situated right across from Madison Square Gardens and is a short walk away from Times Sqaure and lots of stores including Macy's.
I stayed very nice days at Stewart. This hotel have big rooms for familys. The rooms are clean and moderms. It is a good choice for stay in Manhattan, near to Madison Square Garden and Pen Station. I love it!
