Nice hotel, decent rate for midwinter.

Posted Jan 24, 2015
Location: Superb location.
Helpful and friendly staff. Small room, which was fine, very narrow corridor to bathroom, which worked for this client, good shower, need to order feather pillows in future. Very quiet room on air well, specify view if you want one, otherwise room was perfect.

Almost perfect

Posted Jan 22, 2015
Pros: Service (at the door, at the check-in desk), cleanliness
Cons: Atmosphere
Location: Great location in the middle of Manhattan. You can do anything!
This was my first stay at a Kimpton hotel (get on the Karma/rewards program! It's free and you get free wifi). If you book through Expedia or any other non-direct method, it does not count as a valid stay toward the Karma program! However, the staff at the hotel still gave me the "Raid the Bar" $15 bar credit (valid in NYC) when I asked. The room (premier king) was amazing. Very clean, no bugs. Good selection in the minibar, albeit very expensive, although that's just how minibars are. The jetted tub was comfortable and a lot of fun, and everything was generally extremely pleasant and comfortable. The window offers a pretty limited view, but that wasn't a big deal to me. The hallways of the hotel were a bit strange-looking, with some maintenance closets basically hidden by crooked wall panels. This didn't detract from my stay at all since I didn't interact with the strange-looking parts (and no customer ever would have to) - it's just minutia. Thanks for a decent rate, a great room, a good night's sleep, and wonderful service.

Convenient and cozy

Nice family feel, good location. Room was stylish but bathroom was bad with peeling paint and gross ceiling, caulking was coming loose.

Dear NY Styler, Thank you so much for your positive comments! I am sorry to hear about the bathroom, though. I hope it did not spoil the stay for you and will certainly pass this information along for improvement. We hope to see you in the future to explore the neighborhood further!

Location and the feel of posh without the hefty $$

Posted Jan 13, 2015
Pros: comfortable rooms and service
Cons: could not figure out the alarm clock at all (I have a iHome clock at all but this was not cooperating).
Location: Grand Central Station Public Library Empire State Building
We loved the modern, posh room. I thought the bed was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and willing to assist if needed. Especially enjoyed the evening wine reception in the lobby. The concierge gave us two recommendations for lunch - we chose Park Ave Tavern and thoroughly enjoyed that. The hotel being two blocks south of GCT makes it very convenient. The door attendant was quick to hail a taxi for us instantly before we even stepped outside. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would come back again here.

Nice comfortable small hotel-great location

Posted Jan 5, 2015
Location: All of Mid-town is a short walk away. Grand Central, Empire State Bld, Library, Bryant Park, Rock Cntr, MSG etc.
Our family of 4 had a very nice 2 night stay at the Kimpton 70 Park Ave Hotel. Service was excellent and friendly, room was large and quite by NY standards and walking access to all of Mid-town sites was great. Also just blocks from Grand Central and 33rd street subway.

Great location, super friendly staff

Great stay here! Room could have been a little cleaner (chipped glass in bathroom, no liner in one of the trash cans, stain behind desk) but overall a good experience

ベッドは良かった。けど、床がボコボコのところ有りました。

Posted Jan 4, 2015
グランドセントラルステーションに歩いて直ぐ、立地は良かったです。 ホテルのスタッフも愛想良くて、まあまあ。 部屋は、ベッドは良いものが入ってるので寝心地は良かったです。 バスタブも有りましたし、シャワーの湯量も充分。 コストパフォーマンスは、余り良くないと思います。 お正月価格の5万弱は、そんなものなのでしょうか? 謳い文句のウエルカムドリンクのワインは、夕方1時間のみらしくて、サービス無しにはガッカリでした。

私はあなたの滞在のいくつかの側面だけやや喜ばれたことを聞いて申し訳ありません。私はスタッフのあなたのレビューに驚いています、一般的に、彼らは非常に温和である。残念ながらそう、ワインの時間は、1つの時間ですが、ホテルの立地を楽しん嬉しいです。私たちは、あなたが将来再び私たちをしようとします願っています。 ベスト、 ビルB、ゼネラルマネージャー

Great comfort

Posted Jan 2, 2015
We chose to stay at this hotel just because we needed to add a night to our stay and most other places were booked for new years eve. When we arrived to our room we were so impressed! The bed was so comfortable, the couches made for having a home like feel, and the cherry on top of it all was the jacuzzi bath tub! After a long day that was the best thing to do to relax. The staff was so helpful in helping us to find places to eat as well as very welcoming. Also the wine reception in the lobby was fantastic! We had an amazing time staying at this hotel and we would love to come back!

Excellent Hotel & staff in a great location.

Posted Dec 31, 2014
Pros: Location, size of rooms are fab by NY standards
Location: 1 min from Grand Central Station & 5 min walk from Times Sq, couldn't be better located.
This was our first taste of NY and don't think we could have picked a better location. The hotel was in an excellent location and the staff were always helpful & courteous. We couldn't fault the hotel in anyway, it was clean , comfortable and more than covered our needs. I will definitely be back to this one again!!!!
