It is rare to find this combination of location, Comfort, room size, and quality staff at one hotel let alone one so reasonably priced. The Concierge was excellent as well and made reservations for two great dinner experiences.
This was our first trip to New York, so we found ourselves very overwhelmed with all the options of hotels to choose from, but we ended up choosing this hotel because it was beautifully decorated and the location was just right around the corner
from Time Square. We were greeted by kind faces and a very knowledgeable staff. The upgraded our room free of charge and provide us lots of information regarding places to eat and what tours to take. The next time we stay in New York we would seriously consider staying here again.
We had a wonderful time at the Michelangelo. The room was huge by NYC standards, the staff were pleasant and attentive (maid service was particularly good), and the amenities regarding the room itself were quite luxurious.
The location is a plus,
close to Times Square and the Radio City complex, convenient to transportation. It was fun to enjoy the crowds around Times Square and duck into the quiet luxury of the hotel, and it was amazingly quiet regardless of the hour. We were never bothered by crowd noise.
My one critical observation is that food service and room service could have been a little more suitable. The room service only offered breakfast; the lounge offered a limited menu. I gather that there was a restaurant called Da Vinci at the hotel until recently, so perhaps they're just in between plans. And with so many nice restaurants nearby, maybe it isn't reasonable to expect more than a bar. The cocktail menu has seen some expert attention, and the drink I had was excellent, justifying the rather top end price per drink (about $15). No complaints there.
A terrific experience, and we would cheerfully stay there again.
The Michelangelo Hotel is perfectly located for
dining, theatre and shopping in the city. All are walking
distance, but it is easy to get a cab if you wish!
Coffee, tea and pastry are available all mornings, but
be sure to get there during the
appointed hours since
they do remove it precisely at 9 AM! Rooms are large
and comfortable and elevators are prompt. Desk staff and doormen are super nice and helpful!
Really wonderful location and a lovely place. Wonderful staff. Bright lights out the window, but it is New York after all! There were good blinds. The free coffee in the morning was outstanding and the pastries good. I'm a healthy eater so I had
to go somewhere else (no fruit). I had a great stay!
