The Jewel facing Rockefeller Center

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 April 2012

Hotel was in an excellent location. Right in the middle of all the action! Everything was walking distance.
Hotel itself was very clean and quiet. Staff were nice and friendly - greeted you with a warm welcome every time you walked in. They gave us a voucher for a complimentary drink at their patio but we did not have time to use it. We had a room facing office buildings on the 6th floor so could not even see if the sun was out. The air conditioning seemed to be acting up - hot and cold cycles but that did not bother us too much. The room was somewhat small but did the job.There was clean water bottles with a cooler/filter in the hall - that was very convenient. Did not use their breakfast but just as you step out there are two little cafes that offer all you need for breakfast and cheap!
Overall, I would come back to the Jewel. Its nicely tucked away from all the traffic, right across from Sacks 5th Avenue, Rockefeller Center and a short walk to Grand Central Station!

Centrally located at 51 St between 6th and 5th Ave. Facing the Rockefeller Centre, steps from St. Patricks Cathedral.
Modern, clean, simple furnished. Our room 205 standard double though pretty dark served it's purpose, it was quite so we could rest perfectly. Located on 2nd floor where they have the "living room" with coffee / tea making facilities, news paper, computers it was really convenient. Free bottled purified water an additional PLUS.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Glad that I cancelled my reservation at the Warwick a few blocks further and decided to stay here.

We ice skated at Rock Center until midnight and then stepped across the street to our room in this great little hotel. Well suited for families, this hotel offers not only a great location but also rooms with pull out beds, refridgerators and microwaves. And, by midtown Manhattan standards, relatively large rooms. The hotel is clean, contemporary and well appointed.

My husband and I spent 9 nights at the Jewel, during our visit to NY, on May 2011. The location is excellent, just a few steps away from Central Park and the Times Square.We had a room on the 14th floor, facing the street. I wasn't expecting a great view, but it was pretty good, literally facing the Roquefeller Square. The room was very clean and comfortable and very quiet, when the windows were closed. The price for the room was quite competitive, considering the location and the room standards. We have the best memories from our trip and this hotel and we are really happy that we chose this hotel amongst so many others in NY. Would definitely stay there again.

This tiny boutique hotel is a perfect find in NYC. Located steps away from 5th Ave, Rock Center, Radio City Music Hall, Times Square, etc. The location is tops. The hotel is modern but small. We were fortunate enough to be on the 11th floor facing Rock Center with a balcony. The balcony was a wonderful space to take in the vibe of the city! The staff was friendly. Lobby is very small. They have a small "living room" with coffee and computer station. However, head a few doors down to the Club Quarters terrace lounge, it's their sister hotel. CQ Terrace lounge is larger and you get a complimentary drink w/ your meal. Another plus of the Jewel is the bottled water...what a great idea!
