Fodor's Expert Review Kimpton Muse Hotel

130 W. 46th St., between 6th and 7th Aves., New York, New York, 10036, USA

Surrealist prints and busts of Thalia, the muse of comedy, adorn the lobby of this polished 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 iPhone docks, big flat-screen TVs, and animal-print robes (for adults and kids). The family-friendly restaurant, NIOS, serves tapas and contemporary American fare. The Muse is also very pet-friendly, allowing them at no extra charge. There's also a nightly complimentary wine hour.
