Warwick Review

This grande dame was built by William Randolph Hearst in 1926 for his mistress, Hollywood actress Marion Davies, and it's hosted many from Tinseltown since then including Cary Grant in the Presidential Suite for 12 years. Some of the higher-floor suites have terraces overlooking 6th Avenue. The standard rooms are a bit tired, however, and some come with "New York-y" views of an airshaft. The premier rooms are a better choice, with fresh decor including tufted headboards, marble bathrooms, and a generous work space. The Murals on 54 restaurant, which takes up a big portion of the ground floor, serves Italian-influenced American fare under the gaze of 1930s-era murals—try to spot the "obscene" additions that the artist inserted after a disagreement with Hearst. Randolph's Bar continues to be busy late into the evening.

    Great location

    The Warwick makes no pretense about what it is and therefore you're not disappointed. It doesn't try and be something it's not. It's a great 4 star hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and the service impeccable. It's a "walk to everywhere" location. It has a warm, comfortable atmosphere. Considering the price, it's a great solution to the corporate modern monoliths.

    Can't beat the location!

    Like the poster below, the location is fabulous. It's a wonderful place to stay in Midtown. Our room was well appointed and large, however the bathroom, while covered top to bottom in marble, is miniscule! Room service is fast and the food was pretty good. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to others!

    Dream weekend

    I was in town visiting with my son, with a full itinerary. I couldn't have been happier with the amenities, the location, and the service of the hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the bar in the hotel, and hope to return this fall.
