Great location

Pros: I particularly liked the location of this hotel.
Cons: Could you put out two full strength coffee pods and two decaf pods please - you caused a marital argument each morning as there was only one of each!
Location: Close to Central Park, times square and overlooking Rockefeller Plaza - very central.
I would definitely return to this hotel if I ever return to New York. It's in such a good position, right opposite the Rockefeller Plaza and only a short few minutes walk to Times Square. It's right around the corner from a subway station (We took the Air train from JFK to Sutphin Blvd station then the E train to 5 Avenue / 53 Street). The Rockefeller also has a subway station so it's very handy to get around from here. Central Park is only a ten min walk away too! The hotel itself is modern and clean and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Would def recommend this hotel.

Great hotel in a great location

Pros: Convenient location close to major sights in New York, comfortable room.
Cons: nothing
Location: West 51st Street 5th Ave, St Patricks Cathedral 1min, Trump Tower and Tiffanys 4mins, Empire State 12min walk, Central park 5-6min walk.
Great hotel in a very convenient location, hotel staff were very helpful. The hotel had coffee machine in room, a full coffee machine on the 2nd floor and chilled water on each floor. The room was larger than expected, with super king size bed, tv, radio comfy chair and desk with lots of usb charging points for equipment. The location on 51st Street was just off 5th Ave, with Rockerfeller centre less than a minute walk, and Saks on 5th Ave less than 2 mins walk. Superb hotel in a great location, would definitely stay again.

Fantastic location to explore NYC

Pros: Everything suited us perfectly
Location: Located next to the Rockefeller centre, really enjoyed the guided tour & Top of the Rock. We were lucky as the ice rink opened whilst we were there.
Had a lovely stay at The Jewel, the location suited us perfectly. First room we were supplied wasn't quite what we had planned however this was resolved immediately by Iris, couldn't fault the staff. Any staff we encountered were most helpful would definitely return toThe Jewel in future. The free bottled water & coffee was an added bonus which was much appreciated. The room was a perfect size which was great as my husband is very tall & have heard some horror stories about tiny rooms whilst visiting NYC.

Great stay at the Jewel

Stayed at the Jewel for 5 nights and would recommend it. Location is great, right off 5th avenue near to shops and subway stations. Rooms are a little on the small side but this was made up for by floor to ceiling windows and an amazing balcony.

Great Hotel !

Second time we have stayed at The Jewel,and would thoroughly recommend it.The staff are very friendly and helpful,nothing is a bother to them.Great location too...just a short walk fro Times Square.We were given a room with a balcony which was very much appreciated,with views of St Patrick's Cathedral and Radio City Music Hall....and the Rockefeller Centre right in front of us.The hotel is spotlessly clean and has lots of nice touches..free coffee in the lounge and bottled water on every floor. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I return to New York...has to be The Jewel.

Brilliant birthday treat

Couldn't have picked a better location & hotel for our stay. Excellent right in the heart of Nyc & walking distance to main attractions. We were visiting New York for my partner's 30th birthday so to be right near everywhere she wanted to visit was brilliant. The hotel & rooms where lovely & clean. Staff were brilliant nothing too much trouble. Safety deposit box was free which was a bonus. Easy check in/out. We didn't hear any traffic noise from our room (15th floor) which was fab! Nothing negative about this hotel. Brilliant I would return.

An absolute gem.

Loved everything about this hotel.The location itself was well worth the money.Literally steps away from the Rockefeller Center,between 5th and 6th Avenue.Times Square and Central Park are easily within walking distance. Very clean,modern and well run hotel.Staff couldn't have be more helpful.My husband was unwell during our stay and they often took time to ask how he was feeling. Great facilities too.A cupboard outside our room had irons and ironing boards,spare pillowslips and refills for the coffeemaker,also a chilled water dispenser with bottles on every floor. A small lounge with free tea and coffee,internet access and a tv was well used as it had the best coffee in Manhattan ! Can't recommend the Jewel highly enough,we are hoping to return to New York and will definately be returning here for our stay .

A great hotel in a great location

The staff were brilliant - they could not do enough to assist you. The roms were comfortable. The lounge on the 2nd floor was lovely. Water bottles and machines available on each floor. Access to ice. Location for us was perfect. My brother was getting married at the Top of the Rock so not far to walk. Close to 5th Avenue and easy walking distance to Central Park, Times Square, Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, Broadway and lots of other places.Will definately be going back there and recommending it to others.
