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.

Amazing location, staff and extras

This hotel was superb, and we will certainly stay there again when we go back. The only reason I marked it down a star on some things was because it didn't have a bath in the room and the bed was a bit hard for me, but the shower was super. The staff are very helpful, and the location is perfect. Literally opposite the Rockefeller Plaza, 10 mins walk from Times Square, and about 15 mins to Central Park. The free tea / coffee, bottle water and wifi were great, and a couple of blocks down on 47th was a local diner Evergreen which did the best pancakes. Fab hotel.

At the heart of it all

A few steps from 5th Avenue and the Rockefeller Centre the location couldn't be better. A few extra steps and there's Central Park or Time Square. We had the best room in the hotel with corner balcony looking South and West, Room 1102. We paid for a room with a view. The staff were great but someone please let them have a stool to sit on. The receptionist stands the whole time. Tea and coffee machine plus two mugs in the room. Computers in lounge. Safety deposit box in reception (no safe in room#. We borrowed a plug adaptor. Contemporary and new furnishings in room, decent bathroom, comfy bed. Two block walk to 53rd street subway station with direct line to Jamaica Station for JFK. The only downside to location is that it's a business district rather than a residential district so lots of delis and bars for daytime use but few evening restaurants. Two highlights of trip: Walking over the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn to Manhatten. Tour of Radio City #Art Deco)

ideal family hotel

The hotel was in an ideal location opposite Rockefeller plaza and a five minute walk to Times Square. The room we had was large and clean with fridge, microwave and coffee machine. The only dissappointment was when we arrived the hotel had double booked our room and we had to stay in a smaller room with a fold up bed until the next day when they moved us to the room we had booked. They gave us complimentary breakfast to compensate for the inconvenience

Brilliant married couples weekend getaway

the hotel is fantastic value for money. It doesnt look much from outside. But inside it's extremely clean like all of NYC and the staff could not be more helpfull. The location is unbelievable for the price. 5mins walk to time square and broadway. The only time we needed to get a cab or tube was to get to liberty island which is away from that area. All in all could not recommend it more. And WHEN we go back to NYC we will defiantly stay there.
