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
i was a Walk out from the nearby Conrad, then London NYC as the renovations were going on. i settled for the warwick and was very happy.
it has a very traditional feel to it and very new yorky (if that is even a thing)
cleanliness could be better but was not too bad...
Location was great as it was a few mins to times square and 7 mins to central park
could not fault it! lovely hotel with great staff
This is my frist time in this great hotel (several times before in NYC) and I must say that the different opinions and pictures published in the web about this hotel are true: excellent!!! It is a small one, kind of boutique, very comfortable and the staff very kind. If you can find an offer of a room including breakfast I would reccomend to take it because you will find plenty of good food...If you buy it separately it is expensive....
The only "low rated service" of this hotel is its elevator....they have only two working and they are small. You will have to be patient in order to take it.....
Spotless and huge (by NY standards!) room, good sleep quality.
The service was particularly notable; friendly, professional, looking for ways to help. (Full disclosure: never ventured into the restaurant or bar.)
Next to the bed is a light panel with buttons for each side of the bed, the desk, etc. Some people will love this, and love the comfort when waking in the middle of the night in a strange place. This "people" found the light disruptive, but leaned a pillow over it and that helped.
Note to management: thanks for the lighted makeup mirror, but um...have you tried using it? Can't stand very close because of the relative situation of it and the toilet. Also, putting on makeup above a toilet can have wet results. #eyepencilfallsintoilet #nofun. Small considerations for what is otherwise, my new favorite New York hotel.
Hope to see you again really soon!
