“Great for families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2012

Great for families - regularly stay here (also on business), pleasant & clean (but not brand new as some others have rightly pointed out).

Also there with our three kids summer 2011, catching Hurricane Irene. Staff showed great team spirit by staying put & taking care of the guests, instructions were distributed, service levels upheld.

I truly believe that you see the best (and worst) of a hotel when a crisis is afoot & as a guest, you are left in the middle. In the case of Hurricane Irene, NYC, the City that Never Sleeps, indeed took a long nap - all services suspended, shops closed... Great job, Milburn staff!

So - what makes this place great for families? Reasonably quiet, central location for subways, mini kitchen easily stocked from nearby Citarella's, Beacon Wine, Zabar's, Fairway's, etc. Helpful & friendly staff (including the breakfast staff - breakfast options may be limited but ever friendly, they always help me out when I am on the go!), sizeable rooms (as some NYC hotels may score high - but the rooms are really tiny & not suited to families).

We stayed at the Milburn one night in February.2 adults,and 1 child.Upon check in,the desk person said we upgraded you to a full suite,,at the same price.Wonderful,I say.We get to the suite,and soon find out that we are on the second floor with no view, and the heater/ a.c. unit outside the bathroom,which hummed audibly.The suite was large and clean.Good furnishings,and we were overall happy with it.I can sleep with noise,lol.The bathroom was so big,I could fit my own in it twice.Everyone was pleasant on the staff,especially at breakfast,which was fine.We would stay here again.Good location,and price.

Room Tip: Avoid 210 If you want a view,and no humming noise,but its great for space,and on the 2 nd floor.

February. Parents with two kids. Our room was upgraded to junior suit when we were checking-in. The hotel is quite old but charming. We stayed on the 10th floor (room 1002) and had no problems with hot water or shower. It was too warm in the room for our taste, but it seems that climate control didn't work well. We were staying there for only two nights so we could live with it. The room was big and comfortable. The bathroom was also big and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Mini-kitchen was useful because we bought yogurts and fruit for our kids and could keep everything in the fridge and also make tea for ourselves. Continental breakfast was OK for us: we didn't need anything else but cereal with milk, tea, croissants with cream cheese, yogurts and bananas.
The only minus was that we could very well hear the working tv from another room and our neighbors were watching it till 3 a.m.
It is a nice hotel to stay with kids: mini-kitchen is very useful, the hotel offer books, CDs, DVDs and games for kids free of charge. WiFi is also free! The hotel is situated in a quite street and you can walk to the Museum of Natural History and Central Park in just five minutes. Many restaurants and shops are nearby. The location of the hotel is great-great-great!
It is a very reasonably priced hotel to stay there with your family. We will definitely come back.

Stayed 5 nights in mid-Feb and loved it!
The previous reviewer mentioned the reception staff being rude & unsmiling.
We found the exact opposite, they were always courteous, smiling & couldn't have been more helpful! Perhaps it's a case of 'you reap what you sow'?
Up on the 11th floor it could sometimes take a little while for the shower to run hot but it was just a case of turning it on a couple of minutes before you wanted to get in once we realized this.
I'll never stay anywhere else in NYC from now on! We hardly even went downtown - the Upper West Side is just wonderful!

Its kind of old, needs a bit of refurnishing. Old bathrooms, small and old towels. We spent one day there with no hot water, winter time! Reception, oh god!, rude, rude... Put a smile on their faces, please! Breakfast is a joke, right?!
