“Nice, but pricey”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Overall this hotel was very nice. Very nice bathrooms, decent sized rooms for New York, new amenities and the whole hotel is very clean. I would have given this a very good rating, if not for a few things: First, if you are going to be a grand a night hotel, I expect free or at least easy to access internet. If not free, at least let me charge the $10 a night to the room and pay it with incidentals. And provide instructions beyond call the front desk, who aren't happy to hear from me anyway. Second, please don't charge me $2 a pack for crappy instant coffee. Just include it. Even buying the barely bulk 50 pack, each packet costs less than 70 cents. So, I pay $1.30, at least, per pack because the hotel doesn't offer coffee makers and came up with the via solution? Really. Old reviews mention the complete lack of coffee to the hotel, so I expect this is a new, and terribly executed idea. (Note: Tea is free in the rooms, At least I haven't been charged for it yet.) Third, this may be a great vacation/sightseeing location, being in downtown and close to many tourist spots, but this is a hotel to avoid if you are travelling on business and expect to work after hours.

Room was a bit small, and the hotel is very impersonal. Wouldn't recommend, although the concierge was very helpful.

The Kitano is a terrific hotel on all fronts - location, amenities, staff. The attention to detail is exceptional - we pulled up, they took the luggage and the car, made check in a breeze (we had gotten a seriously discounted rate online) and the room was spacious (really! even though it's NYC), well appointed (fine glassware, great toiletries, towels and robes). Diners and fine dining all within an easy walk and no tourists in sight.

A regular stop for me when in NYC.
Have not stayed at the hotel, but while commuting to NYC for work would regularly visit the Jazz sessions at the Kitano on either Wed or Thu nights. Used to be $15 minimum but hear they have added a $10 cover + $15 min for Wed and Thu nights... higher on weekend nights.
After the jazz, you can walk up three blocks to Grand Central Station and have a drink at the Campbell Apartment...

Perfet hotel downtown in NY. Close to Times Square (10 minutes walking) and the Central Station (5 mnts). Japanese style. Very clean with large bedrooms. Kind people working there support you for everything. I booked by internet and it's not rare to find special low prices (I saved 50% !!!!). Next time in NY: same hotel, for sure.
