Editorial review:

This small, classic hotel is located in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood has excellent free continental breakfasts and a laid-back atmosphere. Critics felt that there weren't any first-class amenities such as turndown service or good newspapers. The rooms aren't anything special and the service varies from exceptional to bad.

Verified Reviews:

  • Breakfast was quite good - Gym is not much to speak of - Lovely room
  • Comfortable bed - Short walk to central park - Hope to come back next year
  • Roof top terrace was great - Surronding area was very plush - Room was slightly on the small side
  • I strongly recommend it - Breakfasts are very basic - Suites are lovely and allow for a relaxing stay
  • Showers don't work - Comfortable beds - Furniture was scratched and damaged

    We liked the espresso machine/ cofffee/ tea being avail at all hours. Breakfast was nice.

    We stayed on the 9 th floor and the elevator was virtually non existent due to construction on the rooftop? Front desk staff was not as friendly as hotel 373 where we stayed the following for the same amount of comfort and a better price and locale.

    Close to sub way and central park

    Broken sofa bed and closet door had no closing latch we moved from one suite with a loose toilet and no privacy wall between living room and bed room. moved to a great suite with bath room between rooms

    Calm quiet atmosphere away from the bustle of downtown. Residential locality

    Lack of air conditioning could be a problem when it gets really hot.

    The location was perfect for our plans. Close to the subway and bus. Great access to Central Park and museums. Beautiful rooftop with a nice view of the area. The staff were very accomodating. The continental breakfast was adequate. The room was small, but the bed was very comfortable. It was a bit stuffy and warm and unfortunately no way to ventilate except by opening windows that had no screens. Overall, it was a nice place to stay.

    Good location. Comfortable, though small, room. Excellent (though expensive) food at adjoining restaurant. Very easy check in and check out.

    A bit expensive, but probably not unusual for New York City.
