The Chatwal fires on all cylinders. Every need is attended to. Expensive, but worthwhile. The bathroom was amazing, but using the shower at full pressure actually caused a bit of a flood. The climate and lighting control is handled by a single touch-screen unit, but its operation is a little complicated. Light-switches shouldn't be confusing.
The decor and availability of room service as well as the location The hotel is very small and cramped. The floor we stayed on had a horrible fried food odor that was overwhelming every day of our stay. I did not feel that the overall quality was representative of a 5-star hotel.
Beliggenheten er bra og ok frokosten. Triste og slitte rom. kommer nok ikke til å velge dette hotellet neste gang.
Beliggenhet - Hotellet har "små" rom, og litt sliten standard. Savnet kaffemaskin på rommet som er standard på mange USA hoteller.
Super beliggenhet og god atmosfære.Mange muligheter for å spise og drikke både på hotellet og i nærheten. Kort avstand til metro.
Svært vennlig betjening i resepsjonen. Rask service. Concierge i lobby kunne skaffe billetter til alt mulig av transport og dagsturer, men også billetter til f.eks. Broadway-show. Rommet ble ryddet/vasket hver dag, svært hyggelig vaskehjelp også! Litt dyrt blir det, særlig pga lokale skatter og avgifter kommer i tillegg når man sjekker ut. Frokost på hotellet var dyrt.
Hotellet ligger meget sentralt til i New York Litt oppussing snart hadde gjort seg. Men ellers OK.
The location was great. So close to Time Square and in the middle of 2 great Irish Pubs. Only that we could not stay longer.
Location was great A bit noisy Some of the staff( not all) had attitude. I noticed they were attentive to some people better than others.
Location Overall atmosphere less than satisfactory
Very clean rooms, updated rooms, great service, great location.
Very Clean, Very Modern. Loved it!
Location, rooms, restaurant, and 54th Floor Lounge were very nice Everything... we will be back.
Had a wonderful stay. The staff was very attentive and always seeking ways to make our stay better. The location to shows was the best with a theater right next door and the 54th floor bar was a perfect after theater hang out for drinks and snacks. It was also steps away from the subway to go in any direction. We did not have to step foot in a "smelly" new york taxi all weekend not to say the subway was a bouquet.....just kidding on the smell.
The view of the city and comfortable bed
Overall staff was friendly.....BUT Our beds were very firm, and our maid did a lousy job cleaning our room. She left a dirty wash cloth on our bathroom floor for two days! We did not receive our requested newspaper at our door, and the staff would not give us a paper because there were no extras. The Internet charges were ridiculous!
Absolutely beautiful hotel in a great location! Loved my stay there!! Charging 16.00 per day for wifi is insane
Our room directly overlooked St. Patrick's Cathedral and it was gorgeous. The room was spacious (unusual for NY), clean and comfortable. There's a wonderful café right off the beautiful hotel lobby for specialty coffees and French pastries, and the fitness center is amazing. Plenty of bar/restaurants within walking distance, as are many of the tourist attractions such as Rock Center. I would highly recommend this hotel, and will look into staying there again. There was nothing that I disliked about this hotel, although I would have preferred a lower internet rate (it is $16/day).
Decor, location, cleanliness $16.00 for wifi
Staff was very cordial and gave excellent customer service. Charge for Wi-Fi was unexpected for a $700 a night room.
Beautiful hotel, incredible view and far enough away from the craziness of Times Square but a pretty easy walk to wherever you want to go. I was skeptical because of the deal we got on hotels.com but it was an awesome spot! No closet in the hotel room.
Convenient location to everything we were doing and the Molton Brown products are terrific! It's a luxurious hotel and a lovely interlude from the chaos of Manhattan. We asked for some champagne flutes and the ones we received were delivered dirty. We called and asked for replacements and it took well over an hour to receive them - at that point we had washed the flutes ourselves in the bathroom sink.
Large rooms, excellent location
location room wasnt clean properly by housekeeping
Staff was great, service excellent, rooms were huge in the Tower No coffe in room, very pricey to have sent to your room
Nice ambiance. Good elevators to get to room efficiently Poor housekeeping. Bathroom smelled musty. They forgot to leave washcloths one time. Then forgot to leave shampoo another time. When we called for shampoo to shower took 1.5 hours to come. Also asked for blankets when checked in which never came.
Location, good neibourhood , good loung and snack shop . Also rooms were good side and clean with proper functioning bathroom. I wish they had a sit down restaurant of their own. Although they are close to restaurants on the street.
Hyggelige og effektive folk i resepsjonen! Virkelig!! Pene moderne rom, rene og elegante, ikke veldig store. Bra flatskjerm og radio med iPod dock på rommet. Stor og deilig dursj. Dyr frokost i 44. etasje. Utsikten er selvfølgelig fin men ikke verdt prisen på frokosten. Kun meny frokost og den var ganske kjedelig.
Gode senger, dundyner. Nytt og delikat.Profesjonell og hyggelig betjening. Ikke ferdig bygget, bl.a. restaurant og uteplass og resepsjon var ikke ferdigstilt.Fra nettet oppfattet jeg ikke at hotellet var under utbygging
fantastisk beliggenhet de burde tilby lette kaffe drinker i lobbyen
Sofitel var et perfekt valg. Hotellet ligger veldig sentralt i nærheten av Times Square og teaterdistriktet, men allikevel i en rolig del av 44.street. Hotellet har en god standard og personalet er serviceinnstilt, vennlig og oppmerksom. Vi storkoste oss på dette hotellet, og skal absolutt bruke det også på neste New York tur. Vårt rom var romslig og akkurat slik det var i bildene. Frokost er unødvendig dyr, det finnes mange gode og rimeligere frokostkafeer i nærheten av hotellet. Ingenting. Vi er fornøyde med presentasjonen i booking.com og er fornøyde med utvalget booking har i ulike byene.
Rent og pent, vennlig betjening. Alt på hotellet fungerte som forventet, gode senger, aircondition o.l. Veldig bra beliggenhet i forhold til seværdigheter. Nei
It was a good location for what we had planned for Thanksgiving. Nice short walk to the parade and many other things around Rockefeller Center. Room was decent size for New York City. Small Lobby.
The staff were unhelpful, rude and the room wasn't clean or to standard. Thoroughly disappointed.
Room on floor 5 under fitness center on 6, Very distracting with pounding of treadmill at most hours. Renovation needed on room (stained sofa carpet not vacuumed, bath door off support called and told didn't have part in stock to fix, glasses not cleaned etc.) Level of customer service minimal. will move on next trip to other hotels.
Desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. Housekeeping staff very nice Breakfast is way overpriced and staff would stand around instead of checking on things like coffee refills.
I liked best the kindness and the availability of the staff. The bed sheet was not done carefully, except on the first day. The cover was just drawn.
The location was great. It was extremely clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. I would appreciate having a airport shuttle.
Location, location, location Cost Not luxury (wanted something basic which is more in line with my personality) Slow elevators No safes in rooms
Well location Midtown Manhattan, just off 5th Avenue, and a few blocks from father Duffy square at 47th Street, where you can buy half-price tickets the same day of a Broadway or Off-Broadway show. Tip colon if you want to buy half price tickets for a play, not Opera, Bella, etcetera, go to the front of the kiosk and ask where that line is. It is super short. Club Quarters has a lot of cool features, including filtered water on every hallway along with empty plastic bottles, free fresh fruit in the restaurant area, slow elevators, wait that's not a plus!
Location was perfect for marathon activities and staff was very helpful. Rooms a bit small, but ok for value.
Excellent location and beautiful outdoor rooftop terrace for breakfast. I wish I had spent a bit more money and stayed elsewhere. So much went wrong: my room key didn't work. They supposedly fixed it and it still didn't work. My shower didn't drain and I was standing in 2 inches of disgusting backed up water. The air conditioner wasn't working properly and my room never got cool, which wasn't good considering that the bed clothes were just a sheet and a very thick, heavy comforter. The air in the room seemed moldy or stale--I have bad allergies and they were definitely triggered. There was only 1 person at the front desk, so any time you went there was a long wait. Also, in a very small hotel room, why in the world would they have a little bookshelf with random books on it?
Great Location and services, comfortable room, bar and food was excellent. Delighted with the thoughtful ref. books left in our room and the "Club" atmosphere. *****
comfortable pillows & bed initial cleanliness Front desk staff was nice Nice wait staff in the 6th fl lounge area very small room for the cost. housekeeping came in w/o waiting for a response twice they didn't replinish towels when they should have channel was snowy on tv no tub in bthrm
The bed was horrible...not enough blankets either.
Location, friendly staff, room comfort. While the room initially seems small, it soon becomes much larger because it is so compact and carefully thought out. I marvelled at the eye pleasing decor and efficient design. It has the feel of a small European hotel. There's no wasted space in the room or in the lobby. The check in /out front desk measures 3 x 5 feet at most. Amazing! I liked everything about the place.
LOVED the purified water on our floor. Also, the Guest Closet on our floor was nice. Had extra coffee and an iron. Loved the look and the value.
Location and price
The staff were very informative,friendly,and accommodating. The location was amazing!
Location was awesome, steps away from Rockefeller center. Quiet at night. Staff were lovely. Furniture was a bit worn. Beds were not full size.
For a solo, environmentally-conscious traveler, it was fun to experience what it's like to live in 250sqft of room. Everything in the room was well-designed to fit all the conveniences of modern life into perfectly organized, perfectly sized furnitures and fixtures. The tiling, furniture, and appliances all felt modern and fresh. My only 2 negative experiences during my stay were the thin walls and not-so-comfortable mattress. In all fairness, I sleep on a premium mattress at home, so the bar was quite high. But mattress aside, I wish there was more sound-proofing on the walls - particularly exterior walls and windows. The NYC night-time jack-hammers kept me up until 3am. Even my White Noise app on my phone couldn't drown it out. If you stay here, bring earplugs
Location My reservation was cancelled. The staff did not pass me the messages that were left at the reception. renovation with constant noise. Very small rooms, even for ny. Was charged for full day because of late check out
We loved the location. Bed was a little hard for my husband, but I was comfortable
Convenient location and reasonable pricing make this a good choice for a NYC weekend. The room was modern with all the needed items. Not really a negative but do note there is no lobby here, just a couple terminals to check in and one person to help you. So not a full service hotel but it was ok with us. Breakfast was typical american buffet for about average NY prices. We generally don't spend a lot of time in the room while in NY so this was good.
loved the location, close proximity to the subway, free cold filtered water & water bottles, & the staff was great! This was a great hotel.
the location is very good. 1) i have told the hotel that i would be paying for my stay on cash, and was told that i should do so upon check-out; yet the hotel proceeded to debit my credit card before the check-out time; 2) the car park is too blocks away. If one has luggages, the car-park is too far. 3) we arrive at the hotel earlier than 3 pm cos my flight arrived at 11 am. Despite there being vacant rooms, the hotel refused to assign us the room. Upon our return at 3.30 pm, we had to wait 45 minutes for the room allocation.
Location is amazing. Dinner at Tender restaurant was very good. Staff was helpful and very nice. Room was facing street and was very noisy. Pictures of room looked spacious. In reality, room was basically a king sized bed! Bathroom was literally part of the room with no separation. Seemed a high price for a very small room.
Location. First night we stayed in a room facing the street, and couldn't sleep because of the continous thudding noise (caused by the vehicles going over the steel plates covering the construction work). They offered us another room (and 10% discount for the whole stay a gesture we appreciated). The new room was quiet, and we had a good rest. At the checkout, I realized that the discount was applied to 3 nights instead of 4 (I am sure it was an honest mistake). I tried to explain the situation to the clerk, but she acted indifferently, and I didn't have the time/energy to escalate it. Otherwise the staff are very professional and helpful.
Great front desk, bellman and concierge staff. Nice breakfast. Room wasn't ready per check in time.
Great location and very nice staff in all departments. The rooms were a bit worn and the separation of the bathroom was only with a curtain.
The staff at the front desk and the doormen are so helpful!!
Great location, 1/2 block from Times Square TKTS, and walking distance from Grand Central. Classy hotel, lobby and room furnishings, it was great for a long weekend for the two of us. After Kayak gave us an opportunity to request a superior view, we got a 9th floor room. In that room space around the bed was small, as was closet space also, and only one chair.
Staff was wonderful, interior was beautiful, rooms where very comfortable, entire experience made for quite a romantic stay. Rooftop bar wasn't as great as I'd hoped. The design was trendy, but the clientele was decidedly not. Fortunately, the hotel is in a great area with plenty else to do nearby.
fantastic service, great staff, good location smallish rooms, lack of closet space
The room was very nice and clean. The location was excellent. The rooftop bar was really cool too. The staff was extremely friendly. I guess if I had to complain about anything it would just be the size of the room, it was very small. But I know that it is typical for many NYC hotels.
Friendly staff, nice hotel, wifi with no charge, 2 PCs with Internet connection in Lounge for general use like on-line check-in for air travel. First room (no 611, at the back of the hotel) was small and very noisy due to air-conditioning outside in the alley. Staff were very helpful in transferring us to another room on the street side at the top floor (no PH05) the next morning. This room was more spacious and had more luxury. Noise from the street did not disturb us at all. Very well situated at 45th Str between 6th and 5th Av. and at walking distance of e.g. Time Square/Broadway, 42nd Str, 5th Av, Empire State Building, and even Central Park, etc. Café Manhattan right across the street is very nice for breakfast & lunch.
The room and bathroom were spacious for a NYC room and with a coffee maker. The bed was not as luxurious as it appeared, the pillows were nice but the bed was rather stiff. Compared to the rest of the room it needed to be upgraded. The work out room was like being in a dungeon, ancient equipment, located in the basement in a really small space with low, low ceilings. A good amount of the space was taken up with an ice machine, soda machine & water despencing system.
Location is excellent. Hotel was also very clean. Cold drinking bottled water was available for hotel guests which was great in the NY summer heat. NY hotels are expensive so must say Club Quarters is value for money in comparison to others.
The location was great...Everything was in walking distance. Definitely would stay here again.
Staff was overall friendly and very helpful. Conditions were clean and well maintained. Free snacks in lounge area : ) Free bag check and maps of the area. Some of the staff members were a bit unfriendly. View was terrible and we had a choice of a room with a view or ground level and we asked for a view of the city. We were given a room with a view of a wall.
location room size -small
efficient welcome via the automated check in/out system and helpful and willing staff. Free use of computers and rooms comfortable and hotel very convenient for Time Square et al.n
central position poor view, and breakfast service in restaurant
Great location, low rates. Very poor maid service, hotel environment very quiet & boring, not a place you would hang out in.
It was quiet refuge to come back to at the end of the day, and it's proximity to Times Square, theater district and dining made it very worth while.
Location of hotel good. Had a room on the 10th floor which was small but adequate and reasonably comfortable. Free internet (with printer for boarding pass) in hotel - very useful.
Our stay at the Iroquois New York was absolutely fabulous. From the moment we arrived, we received excellent service from all the staff. The room was very clean and well appointed. The location was perfect. Vanessa, the concierge, was absolutely amazing; not only did she provide excellent recommendations for restaurants and attractions, but she went the extra mile in assisting us with obtaining a metro card for the subway. We will certainly recommend the Iroquois to our friends and plan to stay here again for our next visit to New York!
Location was excellent. I thought my room was way too small. I was in one of the 02 rooms and it was tiny. never stay in any of the rooms that end with 02. There was a gentleman in the library when I was there speaking on the cell phone complaining that his closet at home was bigger than his room. I asked to change out of my room and they said they were sold out. I will never stay at this hotel again unless I am shown the size of the room first. Otherwise, it was clean, good location and good staff.
Location, Location, Location! Great mid-town location, steps away from shops, theaters and landmarks. Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room although very small bathroom. Great restaurant! Small bathroom.
Conveniently located,comfortable,pleasant stuff.
Cosy and comfortable The ventilation in the toilet is noisy.
We arrived early and our room was ready. We were able to check into our room early which was very much appreciated after traveling all night on the red eye. The staff was friendly, attentive and the hotel was charming and very clean. Great location to everything. We really enjoyed the Lantern's Keep downstairs.
Delightful. Very kind staff, lovely room. Very good value at just over $200 Room seemed a bit humid
Convenient mid town location. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Wifi service. Pleasant and helpful staff. Tiny room with small window looking directly into a brick wall 6 feet away! The room temp was 76 degrees and COULD NOT BE REGULATED. The maintenance engineer came to the room and confirmed the high temp but said there was no way to reduce the high dry heat.
It was clean and comfortable, beautifully decorated, quiet, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service - from doorman to housekeeping to room service,, conveniently located, cozy lobby and library - in short - a gem of a hotel. Will definitely return!! Absolutely no complaints!
The staff was absolutely amazing. Especially Rocky and Jenny. They were friendly and helpful and always with a smile. The rooms are kept well and are comfortable. The hotel is centrally located so most activities are in walking distance. I will stay there again when I go back in a few months. Everything was great!
Accomodations and staff were wonderful. Location is convenient and in an extremely staff area.
staff was outstanding comfortable room, if small great location older building with slow elevators :) small room (but it is Manhattan!)
I went with my girlfriend and her 17yr old sister. Everything was perfect. The front desk personnel were more then accommodating and the room was beautiful. the hotel itself was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more!!
I liked the location and for the most part the room was clean and the bed was nice. I didn't like how most of the hotel was not updated and the valet service took a while.
Location was great Elevators were impossible. Had to wait upwards of 10-15 minutes for an elevator to reach the 10th floor, every single time we used them. Actually opted to take the stairs a few times to save time. Toilet in the room ran for almost 5 minutes after every flush. We were locked out of our room at 1130am, 30 minutes prior to checkout time. The "breakfast bar" in the hotel lobby had nothing but coffee and 2 bananas left at 10am, with no other options provided. We did not get a receipt at checkout, either, nor was one emailed to us. And lastly, we waited for almost 30 minutes for our car to be brought around at checkout because the driver was waiting for the doorman to call him to come around (which he did as soon as we came outside).
The lobby is beautiful and the location is great. Upon arrival to an already expensive hotel, I was told I had to pay a MANDATORY fee for "free wifi and a 10% food voucher and gym use". I didn't want any of that, but was forced to pay anyway. I was woken up by housekeeping next door at 5:55am - no apology when I left at 6am because I couldn't sleep. The room was dusty and not very clean and I ended up taking the stairs from the 12th floor because the elevators were sloe, though those issues were nothing compared to the terrible hours and ridiculous fees. Do not stay here.
Checked in after a long flight from Australia at 11pm. Room was not made up and bathroom was disgusting. Went to receptionist who allocated us another room - same result. Demanded a refund, and went and checked in at the Westin. Very disappointed.
More dining, social areas
It's located near major attractions and it's the room assigned to my family and myself is a good size room. That it did not include continental breakfast
Extremely small rooms. Loud air conditioner. Needs work
Historic property. They don't make them like this any more. Elevators were very slow and jam packed with people at peak hours. Also, there are lots of stairs in lobby making accessibility a challenge for disabled.
In general the staff was nice and accommodating. In particular the concierge named Aisha (spelling?) was extremely kind and helpful. The room was clean, and got the job done. I would stay here again as it was a great value and location. My 'Cosy Queen' was pretty small. If I had another person sharing the room, it would have definitely been too small. But for myself it was fine, but not for the clastrophobic!
The location for the cost is imcomparable. I will definitely put this on the list next time. Front desk and bar staff were not service oriented. Bar prices are... well... it's NYC.
Everything was pleasant except the amount of external noise you can hear in your room, both from inside the hotel halls and the street noise. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Excessive noise from external sources
