70 Park Avenue Hotel
- What's Included
I'm a New Yorker, but after returning from Italy, I wasn't quite ready to get back into normalcy just yet. So, I decided to book a room in the city and enjoy the city for a night like a tourist. This hotel was reasonably priced and in the area of my old office building a couple of blocks down from Grand Central, which is super convenient. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful - even when they realized that I live in the city, they were great about offering their assistance should I need anything. My room was upgraded from a Queen size to a King size which was great. The room itself is a great space with old school hotel appeal, which I absolutely loved! I've stayed on mostly modern hotels lately, which offer limited space and Ikea style furniture, so I this hotel room was comfy and cozy and just all that you could want in a room. Oh, and I'd realized that I'd forgotten my toothpaste and someone brought some right up for me in no time. As a jaded NY'er, I expected less, so this was lovely! It's easy to get to anywhere in NYC from here. I went for brunch in Williamsburg the next day and that took about 25 minutes door to door. I'd stay here again!
Checked in for a quick weekend getaway of 3 nights. I got an excellent deal on Hotwire so I'll be gentle. The hotel is fine. The gentleman who checked me in was definitely not interested in any friendly banter. He didn't even say "Hello" just "Credit Card and ID." The room was large but had an overpowering smell of chemicals, perhaps it had been recently painted. It was definitely worn around the edges with chipped baseboards, missing tile grout and damp coming through the walls. The bathroom was TINY even by NYC hotel standards. The toilet was so close to the wall, at 6'4" I couldn't actually sit facing straight ahead. Walls are PAPER thin. My room was at the end of a hall near a service closet. The door was opened and slammed fairly constantly from about 8am. Housekeeping kept the room straightened but didn't seem to really clean. I accidentally got face cream on one of the pillow cases. Instead of changing the pillowcase, they just turned it around and put it in the back. Also, no blackout curtains. No curtains at all actually, just large wooden blinds. They do not keep the light out if you're a late sleeper or you keep unconventional hours. The location is convenient to most of MidTown, but there aren't many restaurants close by. I would not recommend paying rack rate for this hotel. It's fine if you get a very good deal. It is not a 4 star property.
Second stay here. We returned because the first time was so nice. We really enjoy this neighborhood. Relatively quiet for NYC with an elegant air. Very walkable to good dining, transportation, etc.. Hotel is newly renovated and nicely appointed. Not too big or overwhelming. Staff is cordial and well trained. Rooms are comfortable. There are many choices of hotels in NY but this one stands out for us.
This hotel is worth every single penny! The staff is simply divine and so friendly and professional. They are awesome people! I will be staying there from now on. Chris the front desk person is A1!!!!
This hotel is only a few blocks away from Grand Central. Walking distance from lots of places. The hotel was really comfortable, the room spacious with a huge comfortable bed. The shower pressure was amazing. If you expect utter perfection and small cracks on a skirting board bother you then you may find fault for for me this was excellent, the only niggle was that the bathroom door was a little difficult to close. There's no hotel breakfast but there's a great diner a block away (Scotties) which was great and felt like an authentic diner rather than tourist or chain restaurant.
