Very very very good hotel for the price and location. Very happy with the service and room. Location is very nice and I could see the Empire State Building from my bed!

The Kitano blew us away! We booked the hotel for two key requirements - location (central to locations we intended to explore) and king bed (few hotels in NYC offer a king bed). We arrived to exceptionally pleasant and helpful Bellman and Front Desk staff and a nicely decorated lobby for the Christmas season. Check-in was a breeze, and we were informed of the Roof at 66 at that time (more on that later). Headed up to our room, where we found a spacious (by NYC standards) king bedroom. The bathroom amenities included a towel warming rack and bidet with heated seat! Service the entire stay was outstanding - we realized we needed an extra robe and an iron and board, which were sent up promptly! It's a smaller hotel, which resulted in the place being mostly quiet - which is nice after a day exploring the city and you just want rest. But if you aren't ready to sleep just yet, visit the Roof at 66! They've turned the penthouse floor into an intimate bar space with balconies on two sides with excellent skyline views. Excellent bartenders and good drink selections. There's also a bar menu - we had the potstickers the first night and they were quite good. One of the bartenders even took a quick minute to step onto the patio to take our photo with the Empire State Building in the background. They were in a phased re-opening at the time of our visit, so the Japanese restaurant on-site, as well as the Jazz bar, were not operating, but hopefully will be on our return trip at some point in the future. The Roof at 66 is also currently closed Sundays and Mondays at this time. We were thrilled with our stay, and thank the wonderful staff for their hospitality! We hope to return soon.
