Loved The Royalton!

Posted May 11, 2015
We have visited NYC many times, but this was our first stay at The Royalton. Of all hotels, this one rates at the top for sure! We arrived pretty early (11:15 am) thinking we wouldn't be able to check in, but upon hearing that it was our anniversary the friendly staff immediately upgraded us to a larger room! We were able to check in a few hours later, which was still earlier than expected. Room was chic, clean and large. Bar was super cool and lively. We even enjoyed a complimentary cocktail thanks to one of the bellmen. Location was perfect, near Times Square but also within walking distance to some high end steak houses and bars. Would definitely stay again...hopefully soon!

the worst hotel stay ever

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: The front desk girl that registered me
Cons: Their customer service
The bathroom light was not working. The air conditioning had to be fixed. The food service did not bring the quantity of food we paid for. The baggage man left me with 2 full carts full of luggage and boxes and did not help me put it in my car which was parked in front of door until I gave him $40 to help me. It was not what I was expecting. My guests were disappointed as well. The front desk girl that registered me was amazing. That was the only good part of my stay.

Hi Anonymous, I am terribly sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us in New York City, clearly several issues well below our established standards. We would love to be afforded the opportunity to make it up to you on a repeat visit. Safe travels,

A wonderful hotel, but ...

Posted May 4, 2015
Pros: See above.
Cons: See above.
Location: You're in the heart of the theater district, also not too far from the Museum of Modern Art. Quite a few good restaurants around.
We always like Royalton and usually stay there when we're in New York. The place has a terrific vibe, lovely design, wonderful showers, and a very helpful staff. But there were a few clouds on the horizon this time: First, we were not allowed to charge some drinks to our room -- it was clearly a mistake, but it was off-putting, especially since a promised manager did not show up. Then, budget cuts have done away with any food over the weekend. We can understand doing away with a full-service restaurant, but no bar menu? no room service? Simply not possible in a place of this character. Perhaps against that background, I was annoyed to be charged for Internet -- especially when I had no problem getting through on my apps our first night there, then to find even my apps blocked the next day. In this day and age, there is no longer any excuse for this. So do be aware of these issues. If you're OK with them, you can have a wonderful time at Royalton.

Pros: Everthing
Cons: Cost of food and drink could be cheaper.
Location: Close to theatres, times sq and shops and subway.
Great location for Times Square and theatre district also just of 5th ave so plent shops lots of resturants. Every evening the bar area was buzzing with non resident and resident need to reserve a seat if you want one.

I hope you were able to enjoy the lively bar scene we have here as well. The hotel can always make reservations for our VIP hotel guests, and we strongly recommend them.

Idéalement localisé.

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Vraiment bien situé entre la 5 et 6 av et sur 44 th street. A notre arrivée nous avons dû changer de chambre pour en prendre une "supérieure"... la 1 ère "standard" était tellement exiguë qu elle etait impossible et donnait sur un mur qui touchait litteralement la fenêtre.... L échange s est fait avec une majoration bien entendu, mais le personnel a été charmant. Les lits sont top. Les deux soucis de cet hotel sont d abord le lobby -très sombre- pris d assaut à partir de 6 PM, donc excessivement bruyant -et avec une musique trop forte- et le chauffage à air pulsé ds la chambre, affreusement bruyant et pénible. Sinon l ambiance est chaleureuse et la déco réussie. Et on y mange très bien.

Vero, Thank you for taking the time to review Royalton! I am so glad you enjoyed our location. The standard rooms are 250 square feet which is big by NYC standards, but glad you elected to upgrade to a superior, anything more than 2 nights, it is always great to have extra space. The lobby and bar is very popular with everyone, we try to give our guests priority whenever possible and will definitely check out your rooms heating unit. Safe travels and come see us again soon! -Bryan

Nice eclectic hotel with a great bar

Posted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: The location is great, with local 4+ star restaurants nearby. You are also within walking distance to NBC studios and to pretty much any play.
Cons: Update the carpeting in the hallways, rooms and elevator.
Location: This is located near the theater district, so if you are looking to see a play and are not interested in the big hotel chains, this is your place.
This is a very vibrant, non-traditional eclectic hotel with a great bar. It is located very near the theater district, with some great local restaurants.

Excellent service, great location. Room was cleaned everyday. However, I wouldn't recommended using mini bar as it was so expensive, hotel didn't offer free WiFi which was another added cost.
