The Lex is quiet and stylish and the location is excellent. Breakfast was tasty. I will be back! Thank you for a perfect stay.

The rooftop breakfast was terrific. The staff was courteous and professional.

Stayed for two nights. Quiet and nice! Friendly staff! I would stay here again.

Hall door opened barely past bottom of bed; bathroom was not heated and only had a narrow, high shelf by the door for personal items like tooth brush, make up etc. Heater fan was very noisy and could not be shut off. One chair and a few hooks in the far corner(room shaped like a tad pole) to put clothing, hand bag etc. Breakfast consists of coffee and a few pastries.

Enjoyed our 3-night stay here. The room was super tiny (normal for NYC) but very comfortable. The staff were welcoming and helpful. Convenient location near many good restaurants and a subway line. Decent price especially compared to other chain hotels nearby.

The Lex is an attractive, clean and convenient hotel. The rooms are small but well-designed. What stands out is the staff at the front desk, especially Derek, the night staff. He exuded both warmth and professionalism. He is an excellent listener, and was so incredibly responsive and helpful.

For the price, there are many much better hotels in the city. Room was extremely small. Did not correspond to what I saw during booking process. Be careful and don't be deceived by pictures. Overall, the only very positive was the staff; friendly and responsive.

The room is very well designed for the bare essentials. We usually use a hotel to sleep and wash up at comfortably. The Lex provides that.

The Lex is located in the less noisy part of town. It has multiple restaurants near by, including Spice Symphony, which was excellent. The rooms are small, just live everywhere else in NYC, but they were clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice and attentive, so we were very pleased with the hotel. They are on the 6 train line station at 29th or 23rd st where you can go to Times Square and the financial district/911 area. In all, I highly recommend it and we will be back.

Had a good stay at the the Lex Hotel. The hotel was in a great location and the room was basic but clean. The free breakfast of croissants, fruit, and coffee was perfect in the morning and the staff was always friendly and helpful.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean, comfortable and quiet. It was a perfect location for visiting School of Visual Arts.

We really enjoyed the Lex. The location was perfect for us, the staff was friendly, and the room we reserved (the Standard) was large by NYC standards. We would gladly stay here again.

Excellent service, down to the details. For example, we had turns up the room heat to 72. When we returned, the staff had turned it up to 75. Nice.

I was here recently for Halloween and this hotel was just perfect! It's very clean, the staff was wonderful and a great location. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend to anyone who is looking for an affordable, but modern place to stay at.

Had a really good experience at the Lex Hotel. I arrived late upon check in and the the hotel was fully booked. The room on my 1st night was on the 3rd floor facing the street. It was ok, but because I am a light sleeper, the street noise would keep me up. The front desk was fantastic. They were able to move me the next day to the 7th floor, facing the rear. Perfect! The beds are luxuriously comfortable. The staff was attentive and friendly. Would book my next trip to NY here again.

Enjoyed my stay at Lex Hotel. New, comfortable, clean and a great location only 6 blocks from my office. I'll stay their again. Great value!

The staff is so friendly and helpful, bottles of water provided in the room, you can even ask for more!!

The staff kindly merge my two individual reservations and the room is so nice.

Everything was great, very comfortable rooms, incredible staff service.
