“Big rooms & close to shops but not good for restaurants”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

My friend & I stayed over 3 separate occasions for total of 11 nights. Rooms were big on all stays. Once had separate living room but small closet. The others we had no living room but 2 closets. Poor breakfast, dont even think about it, buy outside. Reception provided basic service. Generally great location with easy access to most attractions via trains. But not so convenient for good restaurants for dinnner or night life, you'd expect to travel 20-30min to go anyway decent. I'll stay again if I'm going there to shop, otherwise I'll try Soho/Tribeca area next time, as more vibrant.

I had a suite in the Lombardy and I would say it's overrated for the price. The suite is large, but badly needs an update. There is a library in the living room with musty old books no one has touched in years. The living room TV is no more than 19 inches. If you want to watch sports in the living room, you'd have to squint really hard to make out anything; sofa and chairs are probably a relic from the '90s. Very spacious, but I would have traded that for a smaller but more comfortable and warm room. For $350+ a night, you can do better! Also, it has only 2 elevators, and one of them has an attendant. So I guess if you prefer full service in your elevator ride, this is good--however, if you don't, then you have one working elevator.

It is my understanding from speaking with the staff that this was once a fine residential hotel. Now it is mostly a co-op hotel where “shareholders” own the individual rooms and decorate them to their liking. They all come with a little kitchenette complete with small frig, microwave, coffee maker and hair blow dryer. The hotel supplies the sheets, towels, toiletries and housekeeping. I had never heard of this place before booking four rooms here for a family get together. Each room was very unique in their own way and one was more beautiful than the next. I found the rooms to be very large, very clean, very comfortable and quiet. I love that they double sheet the beds – a big thing for me with hotels. It is in a great mid-town location. I highly recommend it and look forward to my next visit.

I booked at the Lombardy because the rate was really good and the location too. I usually stay at Marriott hotels, but wanted to give somewhere else a try. The Lombardy is quite old and the general impression is that of another era for sure. the ground floor is under renovations and there is not much space available for use now, but my room was very nice. The staff are very helpful and, overall, the experience was nice.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I stayed there for a 2 day business trip. The staff is helpful. The rooms and clean and spacious. The fact that each room has a kitchen is amazing. The location is perfect because it's close to shopping and restaurants.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 12th floor with a very spacious balcony.
