The only U.S. outpost of the Italian Starhotels group (which has properties in Rome, Milan and Venice), this hotel announces its cross-pond bravado with a long hallway lined with oil paintings and velvety banquettes, as well as a pink marble lobby crowned in crystal chandeliers.
Bed and Bath
The 179 rooms — large, especially by urban standards — are spread over seven floors, a number that feels refreshingly modest in this over-the-top part of town. Wall-to-wall carpets keep things quiet, and bookshelves, gilded mirrors and bureaus lend a residential feel. This traditional decor carries through to the Grand One-Bedroom Suites, which fill their 800 square feet of space with book-lined foyers, sitting areas and kingsize beds. The bathrooms, fitted with small TVs and two sets of sliding doors, are not only among the city’s largest but, with 55-gallon soaking tubs and fragrant Etro products, perhaps some of the most indulgent, too.
The backlit Insieme Lounge aims for a sultry vibe, with studded chairs, bright red walls and orchids. On the menu: wine, playful Italian-inspired cocktails like La Dolce Vita (Ketel One and limoncello, with a twist of lemon) and meals to match (antipasti, panini, pasta). Work it all off in the on-site fitness center.
How to Get There
Stayed with my mom 2 nights on 7th floor. Perfect location to walk to shops and restaurants, Central Park runs were perfect, and Starbucks across the street. (Hidden in BNP bank building with awesome Lichtenstein mural and paintings) Service was wonderful from the start. Angel did nice job at check in and bring sure we were happy with everything. Henry was amazing upon departure, running up the street to get us a cab! He made us laugh and smile in our last few moments of nyc.
The hotel obviously has a great location, but it is the friendly and professional staff that make it worthwhile. We especially liked the Italian touches throughout the hotel. Rooms are surprisingly large for NYC.
The Michelangelo Hotel is my top choice when visiting NYC. Great location, outstanding staff and beautiful rooms. You can't go wrong. When I walk through the doors at the Michelangelo, it feels like home. Patrick Garmone - Ohio
