Fresh from a top-to-toe renovation, the Fifty banishes cookie cutter in favor of a creative style and midcentury accents. Bespoke artworks dot the double height lobby, though it’s the gorgeous curved wooden staircase that dominates the newly open plan space. A floor above are the Club Room and Den, successful common rooms where guests settle into the leather chesterfield sofas or tobacco hued occasional chairs, or meet for the continental breakfast spread or happy hour from 5 – 6 p.m.
Bed & Bath
Popular with business and family travelers, rooms at the Fifty are huge by New York standards, starting at 325 square feet. All have signature Affinia beds, 42” flat-screen TVs, work stations, coffee makers and mini fridges, plus renovated bathrooms with over-tub showers and eco toiletries. Studio Suites are especially good for groups, outfitted with twin beds, full kitchens (which can be stocked in advance) and optional sleeper sofas.
There’s no restaurant, but a hearty continental breakfast spread is served in the Club Room from 7 – 10 a.m. every morning, and guests can pick up snacks and wine from “The Cupboard” located in the lobby. Celebrated Indian restaurant, Mint, supplies the room service menu from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. As a popular stop for business travelers, the hotel gym is open 24 hours a day and a VIPaws pet program is available (food and water bowls, dog stairs etc.) for four-legged guests.
In the Area
Get a culture fix at the Museum of Modern Art, just three blocks north, then keep walking up to New York’s shared backyard, Central Park, for endless seasonal activities including ice skating in the winter and outdoor concerts during the summer. For retail therapy, prepare to get lost among the racks in Bloomingdale’snearby flagship store, or splurge on designer duds in Saks Fifth Avenue. Foodies shouldn’t miss a meal at chef Geoffrey Zakarian’s modern American restaurant, the National , or make it a classic steak night at New York institution, Smith & Wollensky.
How to Get There
Overall, the hotel is designed and is in a great location.But...there were a few things that I expected from paying a premium rate:- Air Conditioning- Comfortable pillows- A shower door- Larger rooms
friendly, clean, awesome beds! Great bartender, Mark was a professional! Received incredible dining tips from the staff. The area around the Rose was chock full of great cafe's, restaurants and coffee shops. Definitely will return.
Loved this hotel, wish I could have stayed longer. Very friendly staff, comfortable room, loved the pineapple mini cupcakes. The restaurant was great, with very fresh food. Loved that it is across from the river, walked along the park. Next time I will grab a (free) bike and ride.
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was cheerful and ready with suggestions and tips for staying in the city. The hotel restaurant was also very good! I loved that they had European styled duvets. My one suggestion is to bring (or as the front desk)for earplugs if the sound of a train bell will keep you up.
Lovely 2 night stay at Hotel Rose for a class reunion. Excellent location so we could walk to our river cruise and then shop downtown the next day. Easy access driving and plenty of parking.Ate breakfast twice in Bottle+Kitchen-food and price excellent. Great service from Jon.Staff attentive, fun and helpful-as much coffee as we needed. Tia(?) especially accommodating.Would definitely stay here for any trip to Portland
