City Club Hotel Review

Ocean-liner-inspired rooms at the City Club are brisk, bright, and masculine: they're also about the same size as a room on a cruise ship—that means tight quarters, matey, no matter how much you enjoy sharing space with Jonathan Adler ceramics. All rooms have city-oriented photos from the '50s, C. O. Bigelow bathroom products, and "City Club" monogrammed wool blankets. Privacy, not publicity, is the emphasis at this luxe boutique property—the lobby is tiny, and guests who wish to drink are sent across the street to the considerably more spacious Royalton. There's no gym, but guests who book directly through the hotel receive free access to a nearby New York Sports Club. Daniel Boulud's db bistro moderne is downstairs, making for delicious room service.

    great spot

    I like this hotel for its fab location, dark and contemporary interior, and "club" like feel. This was a trade organization club (loggers I believe) and in good company with the Harvard Club, The Penn Club, The more expensive Royalton is across the street, The Flame Dinner is on the block, and you have excellent Greek at Kellari, midtowns other great Greek restaurant. It also was the first place we saw a TV hidden behind a mirror (and we still laugh about it). I have enjoyed multiple stays.
    I do not use room service, but enjoy stylish digs.
