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
Excellent hotel in the heart of Manhattan. Staff were all very welcoming & helpful. Bedrooms were very comfortable & very clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel and if we are back in New York would stay again.
Great location. Stayed in a suite that the furniture was so run down we could not use the den at all. Stayed here several time a few years ago and it was very nice. Unless they upgrade, I will not be back.
My wife and I spent five nights at the hotel last week and couldn’t have been happier. The room was very spacious, quiet and bright (Room 611). The bed was comfortable and the furnishings were tasteful. The staff was uniformly friendly and also ready to help. I like the size of the hotel too. Situated between Rockefeller Center and the Theatre District, it was an oasis of calm. Parking with the hotel discount was reasonable too! Two big thumbs up to Walter Faranda and his staff!
Check in was good. Angel upgraded us from a 2 queen bedroom to a 2 king bedroom. How fantastic! It made all the difference and it was very much appreciated. Thank you so much! Plenty of room for three women to stay for a long weekend. The bellman in the evening on Saturday evening was also there Sunday morning. He helped us with a nice club to try Saturday evening and helped us with our bags with our airport transfer Sunday morning. Nice, handsome fellow and so polite! I can’t say enough about our experience. I wish I never left! I forgot to mention great location and I always felt safe in and around the hotel.
Unlike the usual NY hotel in which you need to come into the room sideways, this place had enormous rooms, with sitting chairs and a desk. It was well furnished and seemed more expensive than it was. A couple of small peeves — no plugs near the bed, and the drone of HVAC (but it was quite hot out). Very well situated in midtown and Times Square.
