Almost a century old, the Warwick has some serious New York cred: it was built by William Randolph Hearst (name-checked by the hotel bar) and has hosted nearly all the big names of the 20th century, including Elvis and The Beatles. It retained its old-school elegance with timeless rooms while New York developed around it, managing to function as a luxurious retreat from the chain coffee shops and Subway sandwich joints that seem to appear on every block. Time slows down when you enter, and the visitors ensconced in leather armchairs at the bar seem happy to be taking a break from zipping around the city that you worry they might never leave. You won’t find bachelor parties staying here or 24-hour party people, but that’s part of its old-fashioned charm.
In the Area
This Midtown hotel is surrounded by some of the top cultural attractions and restaurants in New York, all within a few minutes walk. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral are all within spitting distance, but if you’ve already checked them off your list then get right to exploring the fabulous New York restaurants nearby; try Aquavit for minimalist Scandinavian food that’s won two Michelin stars, or hit up Nobu 57 for slick Japanese-Peruvian food; then have a cocktail at Monkey Bar, a swanky and romantic bar that draws a chic crowd who love the dim lights and “old Manhattan” ambience. The next day you can burn off those calories with run or stroll around Central Park, just five blocks from the hotel. There are two subway stops within two blocks, for easy access to the rest of the city.
How to Get There
Excellent as always, clean and very comfortable. Excellent location near Times Square and Central Park. The rooms and bathrooms are always clean, this Hotel y very well maintained and the staff is always friendly.
Family of three, we choose for the location. The beds were goood, but toilet outdated, bath drain didn´t work well, lights missing buble, glass broken, room noisy due to ventilation systema from hotel restaurant. Charged us on credit card 100usd/night for security reasons, as we stay for 6 nights it was 600USD blocked in Visa. When we booked there was no mention of that. The staff weren't particulary nice, and overhall it was to expensive for what it offer.
Family trip, two adult couples. Everyone on staff at the Warwick is helpful and gracious; you will not be made to feel unwelcome here. If you are a traveler who wants the latest decor and amenities in your room, you will not be happy here; but if you appreciate a hotel that is clean, well-located, and full of history, this place is a delight. We walked easily to six different theaters while on this trip, and when we craved cookies from Levain Bakery on the upper west side, the subway was a block away. Restaurants are also an easy walk, whether for a diner breakfast or a more formal dinner. Both dinner and breakfast are available in the hotel if you want to rest for a day. We've stayed at various hotels near the theater district in the past; the rooms at the Warwick are larger and more comfortable than the others. Be sure to join their loyalty club. We'll be back.
