This historic 114-room Midtown hotel (James Dean lived here for two years in the 1950s!) aims to make life in the Big Apple easy. There’s a concierge to book tickets to Broadway shows (you can put in a request online before ever leaving home), and you can walk to theater district in minutes. The gym, complete with Finnish Sauna, is open 24 hours so you can always find time to work out. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, there’s Triomphe, a celebrated French restaurant, and Lanter’s Keep, a speakeasy-style bar for post-dinner nightcaps.
In the Area
Two blocks from Grand Central Station, the Iroquois is within walking distance of major corporations, which suits the business crowd, and several top sights, which works for tourists. Guests can walk to any Broadway show, head over to Bryant Park to picnic or watch movies in summer and ice skate in winter, or visit the New York Public Library year-round. Forgot your comfy walking shoes? No big deal. Saks Fifth Avenue’s original flagship store is just around the corner—along with just every other boutique you can imagine.
How to Get There
My wife and I have stayed at the Iroquois several times and we love it. In fact, it is becoming a "home away from home" for us. It is excellent on all fronts: location, facilities, and service. The staff will do all that they can to make sure that your visit exceeds expectations.
Very nice hotel on W44th in Midtown convenient to Times Square and Broadway. Great service, easy check in and check out, and very hospitable! Everyone was very courteous and helpful. The only drawback was the rooms were very small. Plenty of awesome restaurants and pubs within walking distance, and a short walk to the Broadway show we attended.
This is the first time my husband and I stayed at the Iroquois Hotel. We loved it. The front desk staff are always so friendly and helpful. Vanessa, the concierge, made is so easy for us to take the subway as well as get to the places we needed to get too. She is a gem. JJ, the doorman and bellman, is so friendly and helpful with whatever was needed. He added some sunshine to our day. Centrally located in Times Square, the rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. We can’t wait to return to New York City and Iroquois will be where we stay.
Very pleasant stay. Centrally located hotel but away from the noise of the city. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend to friends who would ask about out trip. The Staff were extremely pleasant to us. They were also very helpful in advising us of the renovations which were going on and did not affect us at all.
Rooms were very quaint and clean the location is very good and safer area
the Staff was very nice and helpful but it had the slowest elevators in the east
The restaurant was closed it would have been nice to know ahead of time
and the lobby needs some help
