“Great hotel, amazing location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

Loved my stay at 6 Columbus and hope to stay there anytime I am in New York. Staff was nice, room was clean. Loved the bathroom design - using same subway tiles in my bathroom upgrade. Bar in attached restaurant on first floor is great too. Can't say enough about location, obviously.

Stayed here one night (intended to stay longer but checked out because of experience.)
The location was perfect, Columbus Circle, really close to Central Park.

We were told that we got a "standard" room. However, our room was incredibly tiny, overlooked a brick wall (less that a foot from the window), had a bed that most people would be hard pressed to call a twin.
In fact, we were laughed at by the cleaning lady when she saw the bed and realized that it had been assigned to a couple. She showed us a few other rooms on the same floor which looked significantly bigger.

The bathroom itself was bigger than our room and very modern. The front desk service was spotty with some of them being way nicer than others.

Given NYC's usual hotel room sizes, I wasn't expecting a huge bedroom. This can be a good hotel provided you get the right room.However, the size of our room was simply unforgivable.

Dear Sunculpah

I appreciate your feedback. I am somewhat surprised about your remark in regards to the room size. We are very transparent and are not tricking our guest in any way. The room size and bed configurations of all our rooms are indicated on our website for everybody to see. If the room you reserved was too small for you please feel free to contact me directly and i can give you a tour of the hotel and show you a variety of our different room categories to make sure we'll book the appropriate room for you the next time.

Kind regards

I've now stayed at 6 Columbus several times on business trips to NYC and its quickly become a favorite. The location is great, the hotel has everything you need and the staff are very focused on catering to your needs. If you like stylish boutique this is a good choice.

As a business and leisure traveler who spends 100-130 nights a year in hotels, I've come to really appreciate certain things---cleanliness, location, amenities, and warm service. This hotel delivers!

First, cleanliness--this is my BIGGEST concern when I travel. I cannot stand anything that feels like it might be unclean. At 6 Columbus, my room was absolutely spotless! It was also apparent, by design, that they avoided "dirt traps" like carpet, bedspreads, etc. that don't get cleaned regularly, by nature. My room was decorated and designed beautifully with hardwood floors--a REAL treat for cleanliness snobs and germophobes! I wish all hotels had hardwood floors like this one, rather than the dirt-masking darkly patterned carpets most hotels use. This floor gets an A+++ with me at 6 Columbus!

The bathroom was also spotless--and tiled floor to ceiling with a gorgeous contemporary feel. I love the black, gray and white contemporary feel of my room with touches of wood to add warmth.

The bed was quite comfortable and I loved the freshly washed duvets and nice sheets.

I was exceptionally surprised by windows on BOTH opposite sides of my room! Views on two opposite sides? That RARELY happens! What a treat! I could overlook Columbus Circle from my wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling window and peek at Central Park from my office chair... neat! I also had a nice little balcony, complete with chair and coffee table. I've NEVER been to a NY hotel with a balcony like that. Superb!

For ladies---you will LOVE the high-end brand, Kiehl's amino acid shampoo and conditioner at this hotel. FINALLY a hotel that gives you ample shampoo and a conditioner that ACTUALLY CONDITIONS your hair! (Instead of that goop that rinses out leaving your hair no less conditioned than before you started.) It was WONDERFUL...to the point I want to go online and see how to purchase more!

The service at this hotel was superb. Always friendly, helpful, and they memorized my name within minutes of checking in---and people greeted me by name throughout my 4-night stay. Brandon, one of the doormen, was especially courteous and helpful. They made me feel right at home.

A nice, large flat screen TV and a full snack and mini-bar that was stocked well-beyond-mini status was a nice treat when tired feet and long work days extinguished some of my energy for getting to the nearby drugstore for a beverage or snack. The prices at the mini-bar weren't bargains, but weren't total rip-offs, either, given the convenience.

For a business traveler, internet connectivity is always important---and I notice at a lot of hotels these days, the bandwidth is severely lacking given the multitude of devices and data-heavy use put upon them in the evening hours. At some points during recent stays, I've literally had to go without internet or tether from my phone as the hotel-provided internet (even for a fee), couldn't support the user demand. At 6 Columbus, the internet, though a bit pricey ($15/day), was rock-solid the entire time. Additionally, they offered ample outlets for charging my multiple devices.

I've been a loyal member of the Hilton chain of hotels for years (Diamond level), but I chose 6 Columbus hotel for it's location to business on this particular trip, and it's price (a little less than other nearby hotels), plus other reviews I read about its quality. For me, not staying at a Hilton chain is a deviation from loyalty that I rarely make. That said, whenever I shall return to NYC again, I'm definitely going to consider the 6 Columbus. It's been a true pleasure from start to end to stay here. Thank you, Thompson Hotels, for the excellent service and experience at 6 Columbus. I will definitely consider you again next time I am in NY or another city that has a Thompson hotel. It was wonderful.

This was my first stay at 6 Columbus and the price was incredibly fair considering it's a Thompson Hotel. I originally booked the Pod room (which I knew would be small, but I was traveling alone on business and not worried) and they were kind enough to upgrade me to a larger room at check-in.

The bed and bathroom were heavenly (they are always my primary concern), the staff was incredibly friendly, and the location was great (with Columbus Circle and Central Park just steps away).

Definitely would stay here again.

Very quiet, nice one night stay! Included a newspaper in the morning :-) but I don't think wifi. The staff was very nice. The room was clean, a little small and dark, not too luxurious feeling, but it was fine. We booked this according to a good price, also had a good location.
