Fodor's Review

The best luxury boutique hotel north of 57th Street, the Franklin, in a nine-story town house, is a gem nestled in a decidedly residential neighborhood. Though quite small, rooms are well appointed with name-brand knickknacks, including Bulgari toiletries, iHome stations, free Wi-Fi, and Frette linens. The lobby feels comfortable and lived-in, with newspapers laid out on comfortable couches and a free 24-hour cappuccino machine behind it. The generous complimentary breakfast

uses a local bakery for all goods, and the hotel hosts a wine-and-cheese reception on weekday evenings. You can meet (sweaty) locals using a comp pass to the nearby New York Sports Club.

I'm not sure what you expected...

for under 100 a night in Manhattan! The rooms are small, but well designed and very well decorated. The canopied beds are especially nice. The breakfast is good, and they have a cd and video library that is available to guests. It is a terrific value and has a good location close to the park and the museums.

A lot of charm packed into a small space.

The staff is wonderful, the continental breakfast is one of the best I've seen with homemade granola, hard-boiled eggs and really good coffee. Aveda shampoos, fresh flowers. all around a great place to stay.
