I am EXTREMELY picky when it comes to hotels and restaurants and traveling in general. I stay away from the masses. I did research for WEEKS to find the perfect boutique hotel. This was IT! Centrally located to all the great areas of NYC - this hotel is adorably chic, with that New York vibe, having jazz music in the lobby bar (on weekend night’s), an excellent rooftop bar with cozy fireplace serving great drinks, not to mention the restaurant on the main level with a great selection of appetizers and entree’s (we are there several times). It was super cozy and retro. Best of all, the rooms are a nice size very comfortable - art deco in style - high ceilings- comfy beds- and maid service was 1000% on point - every day we came back to a spotlessly clean room, fresh towels and stocked mini bar. The shower had very hot water which was awesome after a freezing cold day of walking around NYC. We loved everything- it felt like “home”. Book it! You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic Property in Manhattan. We’ve stayed at the King Studio with seating area and high ceilings. Loved the shower, water felt soft and abundant. Service was outstanding. There’s a restaurant and rooftop bar on the property. I’ll write my review on restaurant and rooftop bar separately
