"Great stay in a really comfortable hotel"
While this may be a mostly timeshare hotel, we cannot overstate the comfort and pleasantness of the place. As we were staying during Fashion Week, when NYC was jammed and the prices were out of sight, we were quite surprised that The Manhattan Club was appreciably less expensive but no less worthwhile. Great location, just across the street from Carnegie Hall and a short walk from the theatre district, and our room, which was one of the newly renovated ones, was on the second floor, but almost totally noise-free. And we were thrilled that it was really a one-bedroom apartment, complete with small kitchenette, coffeemaker, microwave etc., and the bathroom featured a wonderful walk-in shower with great water pressure. We had a terrific dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant right down the street (Basso 56), a great breakfast nearby at Maison Keyser (and great pastries and cookies) and could not have been happier with our stay. A special shout out to front desk associates Maria and Lisette. Highly recommended. Make sure to request a renovated room, and you won't be disappointed.
"Timeshare owner's perspective- for hotel guests"
I have had a timeshare at this property for about 14 years. Recently they have expanded to offer hotel rooms to the general public. If you are considering booking this as a hotel room, here's what you need to know. Remember the first rule of real estate: Location,Location, Location. 1) "Location"This is New York City - average reasonable rooms here cost $300-400 a night. Great rooms are probably out of your price range. The rooms are clean, up to date, and reasonably roomy for New York. You get a little kitchenette (we had fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher with service for 4 in dishes and glasses.). 2)"Location" You will not expect a "view" from your room in NYC. If you look out the window you will see another building - not just here but most any hotel you stay in. If you face the street you will get more street noise and smells, so if you face the back and a brick wall this is not all bad. 3)Location - The purpose of a hotel room in NYC is to have a homebase to see the city, which means a comfortable place to sleep and somewhere you can eat snacks or refrigerate restaurant leftovers while you rest up to go back out into New York. So much of what you want to see is walking distance from here - and walking is the primary way to see New York ! You can walk to : Central Park, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, all the major theaters. Carnagie Hall is just across the street (only important during their season approx. October to May). There is a subway station in this block - it's right under the hotel! Using the subway opens up the wider New York world to you at minimum expense. (Remember to notice that subway service changes somewhat on the weekend.) Many of the staff have been here for years, over time they don't quite get to know you, but kind of. This trip I managed to leave my briefcase in the lobby in the rush to get to the airport. When we realized it my daughter called the hotel...the sercuity guy recognized her by name and said " Yes, we have your bag - I was just about to call you." They FEDEXed it to me at my office the next week. There is a breakfast bar on the 26th floor in the morning. The price sounds high if you are from out of town...but any kind of regular meal in New York will run you $25 to $35 a person, so it's reasonable. The guests are allowed to use the service elevators to get more elevator access, look for the glass door with the sign just to the left of the desk when you check in. The regular elevators are at a premium during check-in and check-out time.
"Great room after lots of issues, staff has attitude"
The hotel is in a great location just 2 blocks from Central Park. Refurbished rooms are very nice but you must ask, and ask again to get one. We arrived at 3:45 PM and had requested a remodeled room previously. They told us they had none ready and to come back at 4PM! I told them that was 15 minutes and they made me get back in line. I waited and then they gave us a room with a view of a walled courtyard that was dark. Long story short it took a half hour to get a good room after calling someone in the back of the office. When the girl at the front desk gave me the key her attitude was very cold, as if I had caused a problem. I am not sure why they have a 4pm check in when we saw maids there at 9 am cleaning rooms...in any case if you can request a remodeled room you will be satisfied. We only wanted a view of the street as we had driven from Pittsburgh and wanted to see the street!
"Superb location superb hotel "
Having read some reviews on this place I was beginning to worry if I had booked the right hotel for our stay. I have wanted to come to NY for as long as I can remember and as It was my first time in NY having saved for years to come to my dream holiday I wanted everything to be perfect, it was also my birthday the day we arrived and my moms whilst we were there. I had requested a renovated room as per the tips from the reviews. Check in Isn't until 4pm and we arrived just after 2pm. Our room wasn't quiet ready so we left our luggage at the hotel and walked the couple of blocks to Central Park. We returned just after 4pm and our room was ready. We were on the 16th floor and I was very disappointed that it wasn't a renovated room. However, it actually wasn't as bad as i thought it would be. We booked a one bedroom suite and it was massive. One huge bedroom with king size bed and still masses of room, the front room area with sofa (pull out bed) and chair, small kitchenette with fridge, microwave and dish washer and the best bit 2 bathrooms. Never stayed any where with 2 bathrooms before. I loved the space that was there. We travelled with 3 generations of our family. It meant that we had space and if needed a get away from each other for a few minutes we could. When we arrived in the room, there was no bed sheets for the sofa bed, called to reception and it was arranged but didn't seem to happy as they kept saying they were in the wardrobe. All that was there was a pillow and blanket but no sheets to cover the mattress of the bed or a top sheet under the blanket. We did ask for a duvet too but was told they didn't provide duvets for the sofa bed but never understood why. However we were eventually supplied with two sheets and we were happy with that. Even though we were on the 16th floor we could still here the traffic noise. But this wasn't a problem. We are in New York City and think you would be Hard pressed to find a hotel that doesn't have traffic noise. Again our view over the Main Street was restricted by other skyscrapers, but could see Carnegie Hall. But I didn't expect any different due to the location and it was fine. The staff we did come in to contact with were very friendly and always greeted with a smile. On the last day concierge staff called to reconfirm our taxi for us. The location was great too. The hotel is a couple of blocks to Central Park and 5th Avenue and a couple more to Times Square. There is also three subways close by too so can reach other parts of the city. Took 25mins by subway to battery park to visit Statue of Liberty and was very cheap. If you go to the station at 57th street there was a ticket booth so if you are unsure about tickets and routes they will advise you. Overall, despite my initial worries I was very pleased with the hotel. For us it worked out very well by upgrading our suite and for a first time visit it was the perfect location. I would have no qualms about staying again. Thank you Manhattan Club for a wonderful stay. It made my first time in NY perfect.
