    Excellent, excellent lobby. Head here for tea or for some of the best thick fries in the city. Ask for the wifi code at the desk & do a little work...and don't forget to pet Matilda, the lobby cat.
  • New York Guest Tourism Services
    The lobby is the perfect place for a cocktail or cup of tea on a rainy day like today. Couches are comfortable, service is friendly. If you're lucky you can hang with Matilda, the cat in residence.

    Spring for the kind bed and bigger room. Look for Matilda the house cat, she is a beautiful Ragdoll cat. Hotel seeped in tradition, awesome.

    Oh dear. I loved the hotel and it's staff. Terrific. But the street noise, and the fighting in the room next to us made our stay unbearable 😟

    Excellent choice for a hotel. The old lux of Manhattan. Ask to be introduced to Matilda who hangs out in the lounge lobby! She has stories to tell!

    Cocktails and people watching are the reasons to stop by here. Great history to this place too. Check it out.

    Matilda is adorable! (: And the beds are so comfy. but the rooms are super quaint, meaning it's a squeeze- especially for the price. It's a very attractive place, however.

    Hanger steak was awesome but cocktails were insanely over priced. Small rooms but quaint and close to everything.

    You can't beat a hotel that has FREE wifi throughout and stocks their fabulous bathrooms with L'Occitane products.

    If the free coffee at the station on 2nd floor is not for you, head to Gregory's right across the street for a far superior product.

    Rooms are small, but comfortable. Very close to Times Square. The Guinness tastes like they do not get many requests for it (flat), and the cocktails are way over priced ($22.00 for a cosmopolitan).

    Sit in the lobby and order a drink as you people watch. It's got to be one of the most fascinating places to see tourists and New Yorkers alike.

    Loved the hotel, but seriously folks, for $500 a night, put in some serious double glazing.

    Mediocre food and cocktails, above average dessert, but the super nice concierge will give you a tour if you ask. Not at all stuck up for such a classy establishment...

    Nice hotel but the staff was bitchy and indifferent. Not worth the money. The bar however was great. Good time bartender
