Beautiful hotel with a friendly staff

My friends and I were in NYC for a girls weekend. I picked this hotel because of it's location, price, and overall ratings. We couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. The weekend turned out to be a very rainy one. But the doorman was available outside with a huge umbrella anytime we needed to hail a cab, saving us from getting soaked. The rooms were spacious for NYC. And the bathrooms had toilets with heated seats, which was a plus when coming in from the cold. All in all, a wonderful experience.

Kitano Hotel-New York

Had a lovely stay. Room was comfortable and quiet. Great location. Just far enough, but still walking distance into Mid-Town. I'm a tea lover, so nice to have Japanese tea each morning in my room.

OK place if you get a great price

The location was great and the staff were pleasant, but they need to fix the basics before doing anything else. The heating did not work properly so we had to sleep with the windows open in winter to try and cool the room down. It made it very hard to control the temperature and the noise was a problem with open windows. They told us about the problem when we checked in and their only solution was to open the windows. They had placed duct tape over the vents to try and help, but it didn't work. The beds were worn out and sloped toward the middle...like sleeping on a hill. Everything else was very nice. I would never stay here for full price, but if you can get %50 off or more and you are flexible travelers the location is great.

needs some updating

The nicest thing about this hotel is that it is vvery clean and quiet. the location is less than ideal because there are not a lot of restaurants in the immediate area. the worst thing is that this hotel advertizes having a fitness room, BUT there is NOE on premises and the one they offer is several long blocks away. This needs to be fully diclosed; doesn't work for a busy person on business needing a convenient place to exercise, or for anyone on cold days.

Not your normal welcoming American Hotel

Lots of niggles: Firstly they didn't recognise our booking and assumed I was a Mr J J Palmer from Chicago therefore the room was set up for one. The room didn't have a mini bar (apparently they are on order!). They wanted to charge for WiFi access and I told no way and they dropped it. The heating stopped working on day three and it an hour to get a heater delivered. The maid packed my wife's nightgown up withe bed linen and it had to be recovered from the cleaning company! Some of the staff we apologetic and helpful.

Great hotel in a quiet section of NYC

First rate hotel at a reasonable price. Just as advertised....4 star hotel in a quiet section of Murray Hill. Still easy walking distance to Times Square, the theatre district, and just a few blocks from Grand Central Station. The entire staff was helpful. Would definitely stay again. Not sure if they have a workout/exercise area, but didn't need one with all the walking around NYC my wife and I did.

A wonderfully clean & beautiful hotel

The Kitano is really lovely & I was surprised to get a room "upgrade" to a larger suite with a couch & seat. The room has heated towel rack, robe, slippers, hot tea pot - Just be careful if you hook up for wi-fi/internet - Accidentally bought service for a hotel across the street (so many hotels close together) - The Kitano hotel wifi is per device & when prompted, the charge will be added to your room bill (If you are asked for a credit card #, then it's for another hotel)

Very convenient to Grand Central Terminal

Nice hotel. Loose manhole cover on 38th street needs attention to stop the thumping. They deep fry the breakfast bacon, I prefer it grilled.
