Surrealist prints and busts of Thalia, the muse of comedy, adorn the lobby of this polished Kimpton property, a good pick for guests looking for a Midtown boutique hotel experience. Rooms are a decent size for Manhattan—averaging 270 to 350 square feet—and feel fresh and stylish with bundles of flowers, tufted headboards, and carpets with modern patterns. Six of the rooms have balconies and spa suites have deep soaking tubs. All rooms are equipped with iPod docks, big flat-screen TVs, and animal-print robes (for adults and kids). The restaurant, Nios, is one of the better contemporary Greek spots in the city. The Muse is also very pet-friendly—a Pomeranian concierge greets guests and their furry friends. There's a nightly complimentary wine hour.

Walking into the Muse is like walking into my more glamorous home away from home. Located on 46th street between 6th and Broadway, it is in the heart of Times Square. One is greeted with the warmest of welcomes. The guest rooms are elegantly appointed including a bust of Thalia, the muse of comedy. As with all Kimpton hotels, my welcome amenity arrives with a hand written note making me feel like I am part of the family. From 5:00 to 6:00 cocktails
are served in the lobby free of charge. Don't miss out. On your next trip to New York City, stay at the Muse.

Not sure who rated The Muse as one dollar sign ($), but it is definitely NOT -- pricing runs more toward the $300 per night range.
