Stayed here with my daughters for a girls' holiday trip. All of us loved the hotel, especially our stylish room, which gave us an incredible view of the Empire State Building. This might be the first New York hotel room where I didn't feel cramped. The staff were extremely welcoming and pleasant, particularly Darnell, who checked us in and always greeted us by name when we saw him in the lobby over our stay. We also enjoyed spending time in the restaurant--my girls really thought the bathrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors were cool. I visit New York fairly often and like to try different hotels in various parts of the city, but Virgin will definitely be a repeat hotel for me (hopefully on my next trip).

As a former hospitality professional I can be critical of hotels. I loved the low key not over the top lobby. This place focuses on service and simple. We were upgraded to a corner room with a beautiful view of the Empire State Building. The room was large for NYC standards. The bar and restaurant had great service and a beautiful esthetic. The upper area of the lounge would be a great spot to work when it’s not pool season as no one was there- which we appreciated for a bit of quiet in a large city. The location was very convenient to many things and safe.
