Travelled to NYC for wife's 40th birthday. Apart from the room being a tad small (to be expected from any central Manhattan hotel, I think), the Archer was really excellent! Also worth paying a little extra for an Empire State bldg view.

My daughter and I decided to have the trip of a lifetime to New York following my retirement. We stayed at the Refinery Hotel for 4 nights and we were extremely glad that we had chosen this wonderful hotel. It's location was ideal, located between 5th and 6th Avenue within comfortable walking distance to Times Square, Rockerfeller Centre, Macy's and a lot of other wonderful shops along Fifth Avenue.
We did use a lot of taxis as walking for longer periods was an issue for me, this does take quite a lot of money but well worth it in our circumstances. We visited all the well known New York landmarks and found that an early start helped a lot with the queus and the amount of people - we were at the Empire State Building as they opened at 08.00 a.m. Similarily Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island and Top of the Rock.
We had wonderful meals in a lot of special restaurants but the two that stood out were Gallagher's steak house in the Broadway area and The Boathouse in Central Park where we were fortunate in experiencing exceptionally warm weather and we enjoyec lunch overlooking the lake.
A wonderful night at the theatr watching Jersey Boys was also a highlight which we'll never forget.
Back to the wonderful Refinery Hotel, we were so glad that we had chosen a boutique hotel and not one of the much larger establishments that New York is well known for. The staff couldn't do enough for you and service was world class - actually made our holiday.

Just arrived back from a busy week in New York for my daughters sixteenth birthday. The Strand Hotel was absolutely perfect for us. We walked everywhere from our hotel as it was so central. All major attractions were less than 15-20 minutes walk. And a 2 min walk from the Empire State Building with its fantastic views. We took in a basketball game at Madison Square Garden, A show on Broadway and a couple of fantastic tours with the Grayline Bus Company. Spent a day in Central Park and obviously done some shopping !. All in all a great experience.

Could not fault this hotel. Very clean. Helpful staff. Tasty bagels, muffins, yoghurt, cereal for breakfast. Unlimited tea and coffee 24 hours/day. Good central mid town position. New York hotels are pricey. This one is top end price for three star, but very good.
