What a find!

We liked everything about the hotel. About my only complaint was that our "view" was a fire escape... See full review

Shaping the future of Hospitality in the spirit of the past, the City Club Hotel combines the scale and tradition of a private club with the first rate services and amenities of a modern luxury hotel. Located near the Theater District on vibrant West 44th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenue and Avenue of the Americas, it offers the neighborhood and city nothing less than an urban cultural oasis for the refined traveler.
Hotelier Jeff Klein has remained ardently committed to preserving the relaxed privacy of the buildings former incarnation as a gentlemen's club and private sanctuary for the citys power brokers. Dating from 1904, and nestled on the New York City's Club Row. The seven-story, 65 room hotels discrete, elegant facade is in harmony with prestigious neighbors like the New York Yacht, Harvard and Penn Clubs. The intimate duplex lobby that incorporates a mezzanine guest lounge furthers the hotels twin themes of discretion and luxury.
The hotels interior designer, Jeffrey Bilhuber, regards the City Club as an important step in the evolution of his New American Classicism, a seductive mix of classic materials and simple forms utilized in a refreshing and inspired manner. The blend of familiar and innovative appeals to modernists and traditionalists alike, creating a continuity of style while nurturing a modern tradition.
Bilhuber's emphasis on comfort and luxury is evident in every facet of the hotel, whose handsome guest rooms feature wall coverings simulating hand drawn plaster, Honduran mahogany, Frette bed linens, and down feather beds. The City Club Hotel also offers three Grand Duplex suites, each with their own private terrace. All accommodations contain voluminous chocolate marble and chrome bathrooms offering CO Bigelow bath products.

Happiness is Great Customer Service

I arrived ahead of nominal check-in time, and particularly appreciated the desk-clerk's way-better-than-usual effort to expedite room availability.Room was comfortable, especially quiet, and had all amenities needed by a male.

First time use of Monorail/NJ Transit from EWR to Penn Station. Quick and inexpensive. Used bus from Grand Central to JFK/Jet Blue. Elapsed time from leaving hotel to JFK Gate less than 80 minutes for $15. All the stars were aligned.

Very pleasantly surprised!

This hotel was wonderful! The staff was kind and accomodating; they even gave us a complimentary upgrade. Everything was clean, there was plenty of space, and the terrace was a welcome surprise. It was within walking distance to Central Park, 5th Ave shopping, and Times Square. We will definitely return!

NYC Tourists!

Our trip to NYC was a christmas present for my 20 year old daughter so it was catered to what she wanted to do: SHOP, SHOP, SHOP, see Wicked, see museums, and eat. The hotel was great boutique hotel - very trendy and the customer service was excellent. The restaurant adjacent to the hotel was actually our favorite while there! It is in a great location for access to everything!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

I recommend purchasing a New York City Pass ahead of time if your plan is to sight-see and do the normal "tourist" activities (see statue of liberty, go to museums, go to the Empire State building, etc.) The pass can be purchased in increments of days and allows either free entrance or discounts to most all typical tourist attractions. It saved us a huge amount of time (from standing in lines) and money!

City Club was great

Went to join my wife after she interviewed. City Club is a great location, short walks to Time Square and Broadway. Instead of mints on your pillow you get warm cookies - awesome! Hotel staff was friendly, room was cozy and neat. Great place to stay a short while!

Time Square is a block away and is fun to see at night. Go see a Broadway show: we saw Wicked and it was fantastic!
