Great find

This hotel is a hidden gem in plain sight! We stayed Labor Day weekend and had a terrific visit. The hotel is really well located - just around the corner from Bryant Park - but the service takes it over the top. Super friendly and very helpful. We would certainly return again!

My new Favorite New York Hotel

The Chatwal is a hidden gem - only half a block from Time Square but completely quiet . Spacious rooms, exceptional staff with personalized service, great restaurant and bar - simply the best in New York. Far better than hotels that are twice the price. The spa is excellent and the gym is small but well-equipped. Every staff member, from the people at the door to the people who help with luggage to the front desk - all completely professional and friendly. The Chatwal will defy every stereotype you have of grumpy New York service - these people are great!!!

Dear KansasCityStar1, Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! We are happy to learn that you had an enjoyable stay with us in so many different ways. Thank you for complimenting our hardworking team that genuinely cares for all our guests and does their best to create an exceptional experience. Glad you pointed out the convenience of our location. It is indeed a combination of all the major attractions and a big crowd, yet remaining a discrete Oasis in New York City Rush. It is a pleasure to know that our Mynd Spa, pool and gym all were to your taste. Our salt water pool is on a small size indeed, however, is equipped with a resistance current for a more enhanced experience. Once again, thank you for your stay and we will be glad to welcome you back at The Chatwal, New York! Warm Regards, Vita Yaprintseva Assistant Manager Guest Relations

We stay at the Chatwal if we spend time together in New York. And it is always special, very special. The staff is super friendly and very service minded. From the guys at the door, the people behind reception, the cleaning ladies, room service, in the restaurant. Truly, every time, a superb experience. Thanks again. We will be back!

Perfect luxury experience

The location is very central. An easy 5 min walk to Time Square. Amazing shopping and restaurants all around. But the best part was the service at this hotel! The Lamb’s Club offer the most wonderful breakfast. Our room was very European and had a cool tub, (not so fond of the bathroom sink). Roxy at the reception is an absolute delight! Indeed a short vacation, Thank you for the memories Chatwal!

Thank you for acknowledging The Lambs Club restaurant and the breakfast which met your preferences. Additionally, we are grateful for pointing out our unique Art Deco design and sincere hospitality of our team members.

What a hotel!

I stayed at the Chatwal with my sister to attend the US Open for my 50th Birthday. What a hotel! The staff were friendly and helpful. They reworked our reservation to provide connecting rooms creating a suite. While we checked in we were served complimentary champagne to mark the occasion. Our accommodations were beyond my expectations. Beautiful decor, amenities and views. I highly recommend the Chatwal. It’s in an ideal location near Times Square. However it’s a surprisingly quiet and relaxing spot. Our room service for breakfast was delicious. Great dining in walking distance, too.

One of our main goals is to create unforgettable memories for our guests and their loved ones. It is a true pleasure to learn that our well appointed accommodations, amenities and the view exceeded your expectations. Thank you so much for mentioning how quiet the hotel is, despite of being in the center of one of the busiest areas of New York City. Your comments in regards to breakfast at The Lambs Club were shared with the restaurant team, as it encourages us to become even better for our valuable guests like yourself.
