Location & service.
Location Poor a/c - room was very warm. Bathroom was small and bed wasn't that comfortable
Beautiful hotel with a wonderful staff. Location couldn't be better. If you enjoy luxury this is the place.
My experience made every other hotel I have stayed at seem 5-Star! I paid over $----- for the night and checked out to sleep at a hotel staffed by sane people. The security guard Patrick banging on my hotel door demanding entry and falsely accusing me of smoking marihuana. I am a 55 year old man and my guest was a medical doctor. No phone call, No 'Sorry to bother you sir...' Just an unhinged rent-a-cop. Wow!
If you want impeccable service, and enjoy every amenity you could think of, then this is your hotel! Everything from friendly service to comfortable clean rooms, this hotel delivers. It's close to everything interesting, theatre, shopping, restaurants. I can't wait to return! Thank you St. Regis. A fun-filled weekend that gave us a life time of memories.
Very Clean, Very Modern. Loved it!
Location Overall atmosphere less than satisfactory
My wife and I stayed at the Palace many years ago and this stay was the first under Lotte's ownership. It's a big hotel, so it lacked the intimacy of some place like the Lowell Carlyle or the Plaza Athenee. That said, it's considerably less expensive, unless you are in the Towers. What I found remarkable was the consistency of staff attitude. Friendly, appropriately personal, attentive, and helpful. $50 for a simple breakfast (farro porridge with fruit, coffee, and a freshly made vegetable juice, was a new high (or low, depending on how you look at it) for New York. Delicious for sure, but pricey.
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.
