Good Experience

The staff welcomed me when I arrived. They served wine from 5-6pm in the lobby so after a long work day I welcomed that. The room was spacious for a New York hotel. All in all a good choice.

Great value, large room size for Midtown

I came here for only an overnight stay, but had a pleasant experience. Great location on Park Avenue, and close to where I wanted to be. The room size was fairly large for the area, although the bathroom was itty bitty. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and I would definitely consider staying here again if I need to travel to the area.

70 Park Ave

Overall the hotel was great. We had some issues with our room when we first arrived in that we had requested a room with 2 double beds which they were out of. They said that they would give us a king and a cot. The first room was too small for the "cot", so they moved us to a big king. The cot was a blow up bed which wouldn't work so finally we got moved to a larger room with a pull out sofa. Alls well that ends well.

You win some, you lose some.

My wife and I travel to NYC twice a year, and usually stay in a Murray Hill location hotel. This was our first stay at 70 Park Ave. It will probably be our last, unless they address some issues. First, the good stuff. Exceptional location with quick access to Grand Central Station. Walk to dozens of sites in NYC. Nice staff. Good but small fitness center. Always had water (and sometimes fruit) in lobby. Free newspapers. Now the bad stuff. Air conditioner never really cooled down the room (thought it was quite hot in NYC). Horrible WIFI, even if you pay for it (this should be a deal breaker for a business person). Toilet not really usable as mounted. Need to sit side-saddle. At this price, a light breakfast should be included. Coffee shop off of lobby is horrible. No options for meals on the premises. Small lobby with uncomfortable seating. Rooms look very dated. Halls and elevators had a dirty/dingy feel. Shower drain was very slow. Bed way too soft. The location trumps a lot of this, if you are just looking for a good central New York setting.

Go to Top of the Rock instead of Empire State building. Cheaper, shorter lines, better views, nicer setting.

Week in NYC in June 2014

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The staff is really friendly, the room is pretty but a bit small. The bathroom was very small. I would probably try another hotel of the same brand in NY, next time, perhaps the one in H.kitchen. Anyways, overall a good 4 star experience.

DISAPPOINTING FOR A KIMPTON...

I love KIMPTON Hotels, but this hotel appears to be a hotel purchased by Kimpton and them primped a bit... The AC in my room didn't work, The mini-bar was damaged and wouldn't open. There were some modern features added, new tile, new art, etc., but they seemed to be applied over the old paint, the old carpet, etc. NOT up to the standards of a KIMPTON.

Great Midtown East Hotel

We booked this hotel around a girls weekend in NYC -- and what a weekend we had! The hotel staff was so helpful (storing bags until room was ready; bring extra towels; securing a refrigerator for the room; etc.) The location of 70 Park Avenue is wonderful! Blocks from Grand Central Station and walkable to Bryant Park or even Central Park if you are the active type! There are many great eateries around the property, too! In true Kimpton style, the afternoon/evening happy hour is a wonderful offering and the complimentary morning coffee is lovely, too! Just don't forget your room key for the morning coffee -- they are (understandably) quite strict in the attached coffee shop!

Great Weekend Experience in NY

The hotel is located in the nice Murray Hill neighborhood on Park Ave. just 2 blocks from Grand Central Station. We toured the island from top to bottom and over the river to Brooklyn during a 4 day visit. The location was perfect and convenient to much in midtown that is an easy walk. It is clean, quiet, and well attended by the staff. Rooms are typical NY City tight but well appointed and clean. For guests on the go the fruit infused ice water at the entrance was a welcome treat. The morning coffee and tea was also very good. The only thing missing was food on sight when we wanted a quick dinner, but that was easy to solve in N.Y. Would definitely stay here again.
