I was there with my mother over 4 days and although we were only in the room to go to sleep, from the moment we stepped into the front door until the end of our trip, we were always treated with the utmost respect. The staff there are all so inviting and actually spoke and listened to us as people and not as a number (as some other larger hotel staff have done). The room was small, but there was no need for it to be any larger! Rooms were decorated amazing and we loved walking through the hallways. Window blinds were great as they were so dark and it was so quiet, which was nice to have. Location was ideal! Perfect walk no matter where we were headed - Times Square, Upper East Side, Columbus Circle etc. Breakfast lounge on the second floor was the greatest. Cake and fruit in the morning were a perfect little kick for us to start the day with a coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Since we were always out between 5 and 7, we were unable to experience the cheese and wine but I am sure it would have been amazing! Overall fab experience and we cannot wait to come to NY, let alone back to the Moderne hotel.

Recently stayed with my husband at the Moderne for a weekend trip to New York. We absolutely loved it! Tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean, the location which is just off Broadway can't be beat and makes for a great home base for a city experience. Wonderful restaurants, such as La Masseria and the famous Carnegie Deli are steps away as is " the Soup Nazi " of Seinfeld fame! Located close to both Times Square, Lincoln Center and great shopping near Columbus Circle look no further for lodging! Great staff, great and inexpensive parking next door, great renovated boutique hotel...the Moderne ROCKS!!!!

Stayed for six nights with my family at the Moderne hotel at a great rate. Much to my pleasure, the rooms were-as depicted on the internet. Free floor space and shelf space in the bathrooms is very limited. However, the room was tastefully decorated, and very clean and everything worked well with a new LCD television. Doorman/bellman and front desk staff were uniformly friendly and attentive. I never saw the housekeeping staff but they performed well daily. THe coffee cake each morning was a little skimpy and the coffee was just ok even though it was a single cup dispensor. The breakfast room was really nice and was a good place to read. Its only a quick 4 or five block walk to Times square and one to three blocks to two seperate subway stations making travelling in town very convenient. Nice Frette' towels and bedding, I slept well in the room. Will definately use this hotel again in the future.

Room Tip: Family took two of the four rooms on the ground floor. A little noisy the first night, however elav...

My wife and I stayed here for a week. We loved it. The decor is fantastic, the beds soooo comfortable and the staff are just brilliant.
The hotel is just off Broadway at 55th Street, so is an easy walk to Theatres etc. It is surrounded by great places to eat and just a short walk to the Metro and busses.
We bought 7 day unlimited Metro passes at just under 30Dollars and they are so wothy it. We travelled extensively on the Subway and Buses including a trip down to Coney Island.
Final comment must be to compliment Victoria on the front desk who is outstanding. If you are going to New York, please try this hotel out - you will not be disappointed!

Room was very quiet as we never heard anyone in the hall or the next room. Don't get a room facing the street as the noise level from construction and street traffic is high. Our room phone did not work so a staff member came up and knocked on our door every morning as a wake up call. They also treated us to delicious cupcakes as an apology for the inconvenience. Nice large TV with somewhat limited channels--no ESPN or CNN. Coffee lounge on 2nd floor open 24 hours with pound cake available in the morning for a quick breakfast. I wish I could put the pillows and bed in my suitcase to bring home. Towels and linens were great. Bathroom small with limited space to put toiletries and no shelf in the shower for soap and shampoo but the shower was great.

Excellent location and a 10 min walk to Times Square or Central Park. Lincoln Center is a 12 minute walk. Corner of 9th and 53rd is a corner deli, Cascades. Great place to get a freshly made salad, pizza, sandwich, dessert, open late. Crumbs has the best cupcakes and is a two minute walk away. Avoid Applebees. Overpriced and poor service.

Room Tip: Avoid a room facing the street. Construction on building directly across the street starts at 6 AM...
