4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Great location at a good price. Was in for the weekend with the family. They were remodeling the lobby but the room was great. Only $20 extra for the suite.

I have been staying at the Kimberly for about ten years now. when I arrive I am greeted by name and welcomed back by the most wonderful staff. Most have been there since I have been coming which shows what a great environment it is for them as well. The rooms, hospitality, service, location are all excellent. A most wonderful find and Marcia is a gem! I highly recommend staying there.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

Although we only stayed here one night, we would definitely go back. As former Manhattanites, we needed a place to stay while attending a wedding. I researched lots of hotels, only to find the location and the prices not to our liking. A friend from Florida recommended this one and we were pleasantly surprised. We thought the price was fair considering its great location and were pleasant surprised by our room which had a renovated double sink marble bathroom with a jacuzzi, down comforter, extremely comfortable bed with a featherbed topping and down pillows. The sheeting was delicious as well. My only issue was that it was not dog friendly so my little 6 pound dog had to stay overnight with a friend.

Yes, the lobby is small, but who cares - you don't spend much time at a hotel when in Manhattan. We would definitely stay here again to avoid the 2 hour drive back to our home.

Room Tip: We were on a high floor that had a nice view.

My wife and I had many preconceived notions about hotels in Manhattan, but very few of them came true. We stayed at the Kimberly Hotel, which was initially a little hard to find because the cab drivers don't know hotel names -- just the streets for the most part. Our room was surprisingly spacious. It's a good thing we came to explore, because the view was pretty dreary.

The lobby staff was pleasant, albeit slightly distracted with each other. The location was great. It was a quick walk to Central Park and tons of places to eat, as you can imagine. My wife was 7 months pregnant and we could not get the a/c to work properly. It was humid as well, but it was just comfortable enough in the room to cool off. I can't guarantee we would stay at the same hotel when we come back, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the hotel. Very good experience overall.

Room Tip: The disabled room was very handy!

It was a luxurious setting with fluffy towels and beddings. The "Upstairs" dinning experience were wonderful as well. When you step outside is right in the middle of the attractions in NYC. The only drawback is the lobby, it could be a bit larger or else the hotel would have been a Five Star rating.

Room Tip: We pick the room facing North on the higher floor, you get the view and it's quieter.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. I am pleased to inform you that we are in the process of expanding our lobby and opening a new restaurant with a lounge area. This will give our guests another option of dining in the comfort of our hotel and more importantly, provide more space for guests to relax and enjoy themselves from the moment they walk in.

We hope that you will come back to experience our hotel when this new, exciting project of ours is complete. We truly appreciate your taking the time to write a review and look forward to having the opportunity to welcome you back to The Kimberly in the near future.
