Fodor's Review

A New York landmark that towers over the New York Public Library and Bryant Park, this sleek hotel is still a Midtown hot spot. Rooms have padded leather headboards with decorative bolster pillows and marble bathrooms with a rainfall showerhead and Molton Brown products. Despite the trendiness, the rooms themselves are actually bigger than average, though lower floors tend to be a bit dark and don't have great views. Both the Koi restaurant and Cellar Bar are popular with the after-work crowd (with complimentary open bar for guests between 5 and 6 pm daily), though later in the evening both the restaurants and the neighborhood tend to get quiet. Still, during the day, the location can't be beat, with Fifth Avenue and Times Square equidistant from the front door.

Great fro holidays

Easy location to Times Square and of course Bryant Park. Service always excellant. Bar can be hit and miss. Rooms and security always top notch. Very modern decor, big bath tubs for a nice relaxing soak.

Bryant Park disappoints

My daughter and I just retunred from or annual New York City trip. We have been going for years and have always tried new hotels in new areas to explore. This year we stayed at the Bryant Park Hotel and it was the worst experience yet! For $450 we were told it was a room without a view but they took that to the extreme! Our room had floor length windows and when we opened the sheers we looked out over scaffolding.We went out to a Broadway show leaving

at 6ish and returning at 11:30pm to find that our room door was propped open. After security was called it ws determined that a maid had left chocolates in our room and left leaving the room door ajar. Creepy feeling to come back at midnight to an open room. The night manager called later to offer a complimentary breakfast. We selected a brakfast for 8:30 am and at 9am called to see where it was and heard "oops sorry". For a high end hotel we were very disappointed and would never stay there again.

Trendy and Great Location

The location is absolutely perfect: Times Square, MoMa, MoSex, 5th Avenue, restaurants and bars were nearby. The service was very good. The doormen and other staff were responsive and friendly. The room was a good size for a hotel room. The bed wasn't too comfortable although the sheets were nice (320). The floors are hardwood and creaky which means we heard other people walking around. The overall look is chic. The Cellar Bar has an interesting

vibe and we did not go but we have heard good reviews about Koi (decent food, good atmosphere. The weaknesses were minor and we look forward to staying there again.
