With a location that can’t be beat (you’re walking distance to Lincoln Center, Central Park and all the boutiques along Fifth Avenue), this Secret Hotel has a tranquil, upscale vibe that’s hard to find in Midtown Manhattan. And although the streets beneath you crawl with tourists and 9-to-5ers, you won’t hear a thing from your modern, subtly masculine room. The smallest are 200 square feet (the norm in NYC) but have all the contemporary comforts savvy travelers expect: designer beds, Nespresso coffee makers, HD LED TVs and swank bathrooms with rainfall showers. The restaurant is popular with the after-work crowd, so go early for posh cocktails in the lounge and book in advance for a table in the clubby dining room. Prices reflect the quality of the seasonal ingredients, with a changing menu of inventive seafood dishes and classic desserts given a modern spin. For fitness fiends, the state-of-the-art gym is open around the clock, or you can work out like a true New Yorker and hit the running loop in nearby Central Park. For other city diversions, the seriously well-connected staff will hook you up with personal trainers, theater tickets, private shopping excursions, limo transfers, and just about anything else you dream up.
In the Area
Smack in the heart of Manhattan, this Secret Hotel puts you within blocks of some of the city’s best restaurants. Book in advance and splurge on once-in-a-lifetime meals at lauded sushi restaurant Masa, or Thomas Keller’s peerless French eatery, Per Se, both on the fourth floor of the nearby Time Warner Center. If you don’t blow the budget here, take your plastic for a wander along Fifth Avenue and hit Barneys, Tiffany’s, Bergdorf Goodman and the gallery-like Louis Vuitton flagship — all sights in their own right. And for a dose of Manhattan culture, head north along the east side of Central Park to Museum Mile, where you’ll find the Guggenheim, Neue Galerie, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Museum and more.
How to Get There
Do not stay here!!!! Don’t even want to rate it a 1 circle...... wish I had rather gone with my other choice of hotel!!
Arrived yesterday after a 30hr trip from South Africa & to say I was disappointed is putting it mildly....... NOT what I was expecting: by NO means a “luxury” hotel as described (a 2star hotel in South Africa is nicer!!!)!!!!!
Entrance/reception area & rooms are VERY tired & dated (think website & TripAdvisor photoshop their pictures!); there zero shelving space in the cupboard; the shower head is awful & room aircon is so noisy I am awake at 2.30am!!!!
Also WIFI doesn’t connect & keeps disconnecting.......
The Quin has already ruined the first day of my dream trip..........
My wife and I spend 5 nights at the Quinn in a Junior Suite. A spacious, clean, modern room, couldn't ask for much more. Don't expect spectacular views since the hotel is 17 floors high. At 2min from Central Park and walking distance from Times Square, location for us was perfect. Metro just around the corner. Nice breakfast at the The Wayfarer, bit pricy but what isn't in NYC. We loved it.
My husband and I just spent a few days at the quinn. The staff there is very friendly. It is also a great location. My room was very clean which I must have. The only draw back for me and it was not too big of a deal was the lighting. The hallways are dimly lit and the room had no overhead lights so it was hard to see at times. The lighting and shades were done with a digital remote and sometimes it didnt seem to work right. Other than that it was great.
We stayed at the Quin for a family vacation in May for our Canadian Victoria Day Long Weekend. It was a fabulous experience and we'd go back in a heart beat. First off, before arriving I had spoken to the concierge to plan our meals out and everywhere they suggested delicious. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and it is in a great mid-town location. We did wake up from a few honks at night, but what can you really expect in the city that never sleeps....we slept happily even with a little noise. We would love to stay there again!
I loved everything about the Quin....it's a lovely boutique hotel at a great price in a super convenient location. What more could you ask for? The staff/management were all great and I didn't have a single problem during my stay. The hotel is steps away from Central Park, great shopping, and excellent restaurants. Even with its central location, the Quin is quiet and restful and I felt perfectly safe staying there on my own.
