Great location... close to Times Sq and everything. Walked all around Manhattan from this location.... even to Central Park. Hotel itself has got a lovely bar/lounge area with fireplace especially good for NY winter. Breakfast was excellent. Also had lunch at their restaurant. All good. Staff are quite friendly. The location of the front desk is between the bar and... More

We stayed for four nights over Christmas following a very stormy QM2 transatlantic crossing. The welcome was outstanding- thank you Marco - and our room which we initially thought was 'style over substance' turned out to be very comfortable especially the inviting sofa after tramping the NY streets. Downstairs lobby etc,as as other reviewers have mentioned, was depressingly dark and... More

As mentioned on many of the posts the hotel is dark inside and takes some getting used to however, the bar area is very trendy and welcoming with open fires. We stayed over the Christmas period and were given a complimentary room which had a open fire. This was lit by the hotel staff most nights as the weather was... More

I agree with a prior review that the hotel,including lobby and rooms, is entirely too dark. The hotel does have an uber chic vibe and the decor is somewhat stunning although it accentuates the darkness.Nevertheless the hotel staff is the friendliest and most helpful of any hotel I have stayed in. My room and bathroom were spacious and very nice... More

The staff are really friendly and helpful but the hotel is strange and uncomfortable.

Booked a great deal for the Royalton on Jetsetter for a kidless trip with my husband.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Morgans commissioned Roman Williams, to re-create Royalton's legendary lobby. The design - simultaneously sophisticated and complex - juxtaposes an icy cast-glass vestibule and brass furnishings with soft suede upholstery, thick leather walls and hide-covered chairs to create a dark, sexy and luxurious space. Design and architectural details include a mammoth floor-to-ceiling hand forged cast-bronze fireplace, a twenty-foot screen that was once part of the facade of a building in France and hand-upholstered leather walls. ... more   less
