Larger than expected, clean as a whistle.

Posted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: Terrific location, good service, convenient breakfast, and easy bar where a single woman can feel comfortable having a glass of wine after meetings.
Not knowing what to expect, I was anxious, but the hotel was absolutely fine, and I will surely stay there again.

Boutique quiet comfort in the heart of Manhattan

Posted Sep 10, 2014
Location: This hotel is in the centre of Manhattan, perfect for doing all the touristy things on the island - and it is a very short walk to Grand Central.
From first impressions to checking out this hotel was everything we needed it to be in New York City. The room was a good size considering the location and had all the usual amenities. The iced water ready and waiting in the lobby on return from a busy days walking was a welcome relief and the wine hour was a bonus. And the most important thing, the bed was super comfy!

Excellent hotel with great location

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: Quiet and dark room, loved the decor, fresh water, snack bar options
Cons: No complaints!
Location: Times Square, Rockefeller Center, great location with easy access to Subway from Grand Central
I stayed here and LOVED it. Staff was really helpful -- they upgraded me to a king room, were prompt with anything we needed (going above and beyond to bring us extra towels when we just needed a few), etc. The beds were SUPER comfortable and the room was dark -- and QUIET (yes, even in NYC). We walked to Times Square, Rockefeller, Fifth Avenue, and of course Grand Central. There's a nearby Starbucks for morning coffee and a quick bite and fresh water in the lobby. After lots of Expedia research, I'm so happy we picked this hotel.

Quick/Safe walk to Grand Central Station

Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Friendly Staff, Clean, Safe, Central
Location: Grand Central Station NYC Library Bryant Park 5th Ave Shopping Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) Empire State Building Time Square
My husband and I stayed at 70 Park Avenue Hotel NY while we attended the US Open. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and kind. The room was small but exceptionally clean, bed comfortable, quiet room on the 10th floor. The grab and go for breakfast was pricy, but a Starbucks is on the next block in route to Grand Central Station. In the Grand Central Station terminal there is a large food court area including pizza, a deli, Magnolia's (WONDERFUL BAKERY) and more! We felt safe and central to be able to reach the US Open as well as do some touring around the city--on foot, by cab or by subway.

Our toilet wouldn't flush and we needed to call the front desk at least three times. The shower wouldn't drain as well even after they "fixed" it. Very dissatisfied.

Fantastic

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Fantastic hotel. Brilliant location just a short walk to Grand Central Station and Bryant Park. Check in staff were so welcoming and friendly (special credit to Avaline). We asked for a high room prior to arrival with a view of The Empire State Building only to find upon arrival we were upgraded to the penthouse suite with balcony and stunning view of the ESB, amazing. Room also had a very spacious bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. There was some scaffolding around the hotel and part of the balcony was sectioned off but this did not detract from a most wonderful stay. The work was not carried out while we were in the room. Bed was huge,clean and very comfy. Room was a good size, in need of a little tlc and updates in places but nothing major. It was quiet and had all amenities you required. We signed up to kimpton and then enjoyed free wifi and had a mini bar voucher. Iced water was always available in the lobby and the wine reception was worth a visit. No tea or coffee in room but this seems the norm in NYC however, free tea and coffee available in the lobby every morning. Starbucks was also only a short walk. I would definitely stay here again. Mario the doorman also deserves a mention, very helpful. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this hotel and would definitely stay again and recommend.

Oh My Goodness, elw15, thank you for these heartfelt comments! Creating specials moments and spoiling our guests is our mantra. When you return, we do have coffee and tea available for in the rooms, please just call reception and we will kindly send it up! Mario is quite an asset to our property and I will pass along your kind sentiments to him. Warmest Regards, Bill B, General Manager

Very helpful staff at the front desk.

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Great service
Location: A starbucks is a block away which was nice in the morning for coffee and breakfast.
We enjoyed our stay - best part was definitely the wine hour! Small room, but it won't make your stay any less pleasant. The location is also incredible.
