Room: Pros:Nice room, clean enough, nice bathroom. Larger and more modern than I was seeing with other similarly priced properties. Comfortable bed Cons: The heat was unbearable to sleep in. Set it at 65 and never got below 74 and felt more like 84. Maintenance came up to duct tape the hot air vent. Very uncomfortable and hard to sleep. Service: Pros: Hotel front desk staff was nice. No lobby. And they answered the direct line when we had questions upon arrival Cons: Tried to use Cognac restaurant for breakfast. Waited 20 minutes at our table with no service even for water so left. Host said nothing. $25/day breakfast credit kind of useless Location: All pros here. Just outside the hustle and bustle of the main attractions - Times Square, Rockefeller etc... but in a nice city block with fewer retail establishments.

The hotel has been amazing, the staffs and the housekeepers were amazing as well. It has been an awhile where I was actually really happy with hotels I have booked with in the past. This is by far the best stay and customer service I have ever received. Staffs were respectful and amazing more than 10/10 and the housekeepers who came every morning to give us fresh towels, water bottles, bed was made, even set aside my girlfriends makeup brushes on a towel. It was just the little things that mattered. I would absolutely be staying with you guys again in the future and also recommend this hotel to friends and family. Great location for everything, Fifth Ave, Rockefeller Center, the Church, Chrysler Building, Vanderbilt, Grand Central Station, and 4/5/6 train for Lexington Ave. Breakfast was amazing while we were there, it was free too. Out of how many hotels nowadays can you say that breakfast is free? Water was always available too. The rooms are very clean and you had full windows that goes from the top to the bottom for an amazing perspective of New York City. Very safe area to stay as well. A beautiful restaurant at the first floor as well if you get hungry. Again very pleased with the stay, these Staffs and Housekeepers deserves a raise for sure. Until next time Hotel 48Lex. Cheers!
