Urban Oasis – I recently spent the weekend at the Bryant Park Hotel with my boyfriend for a little weekend getaway. I have never had such a positive and wonderful hotel experience before. The rooms are unbelievably gorgeous. I never wanted to leave! The beds were so comfortable and I kept switching between watching the amazing views and the super cool plasma TV that was in the room. The bathrooms were so elegant; I could have soaked in the tub for hours. After an amazing dinner at Koi, the helpful staff pointed us in the right direction to purchase Broadway tickets and was extremely helpful. Every time I came and went they greeted me by name and I really felt like I had a personalized stay. I will definitely return and recommend the Bryant Park Hotel to others!
I LOVE this hotel! – I've stayed at The Bryant Park Hotel for business five or six times over the past two years, and I can't imagine staying anywhere else in NYC. I stayed here last night. I absolutely love it. The beds are great and I got a great night's sleep. The bathrooms are huge. The shower had great water pressure, and had a hand held nozzle as well as an overhead huge shower head. The rooms I've stayed in are really comfortable. One time, I was upgraded to a Junior suite, and it was larger than my living room at home (which is pretty large). Last night, i stayed in a Deluxe View room (I think that's what it was called) and it was very big too. There was a big flat tv on the wall.
The people who work at the hotel are really nice. Everyone is always really friendly. The last time i was there, I met Greg, the Doorman who was on the cover on the NY Post, because he is supporting Obama, and used to support Hillary Clinton.... He was really friendly and helpful and never stopped smiling...
This morning, as i was getting ready, i heard music coming from the park. When I checked out at about 8:45, I asked what was going on. The Front Desk person said that Rascal Flats (spelling?) was performing for Good Morning America and it was a free concert in Bryant Park. She said they had these every Friday morning. How cool.....
I'll be back.
GREAT HOTEL! – Loved this place! I was lucky to be treated to a "weekend away " in NYC,,,, Since I love parks ,I thought that the Bryant Park Hotel would be perfect! And perfect it was!
From the minute I walked in the hotel, I felt like I was on a real vacation (instead of a long weekend!) The bellman could not have been nicer, asking if I drove in etc, and told me that if we needed they were here "to serve me"! I was worried that I would have to wait for our room since we were early, before check in time. They called the housekeeping department and they were able to get a room cleaned for me in 20 minutes! The housekeeping department was great (thank you!)
The room was "cool" and spacious (which I had been warned about with NYC hotels), fantastic views and loved the flat screens ( I felt I was at home, but better because I didn't have to do any work!).
They were even able to get us into Koi (the restaurant), not an easy thing to do, trust me I had tried on my own!
Thanks Bryant Park Hotel, see you in September!
Terrible Service-Great location – Well some people prefer location but customer service is critical for me and the Bryant Park lack in every way. I was visiting on a business trip with a co-worker. They gave us the smallest room available (I hope) a cracker box. We asked if there were any larger rooms available and of course no was the answer. Considering that they have no rooms with double beds and seeing it was two of us you would have thought they would have tried to find out a larger room or give us the option to wait for one to become available, but no that did not happen. Two hours later we come back to have our co-worker check in and she receives a suite upgrade. Later that evening, we come down stairs to use the concierge service about dinner and he asks us are we with Serina Williams (I guess because we were black) and recommends a dinner. How many guests of a luxury hotel eat at dinners? After dinner we call down to request a late check-out, do to our event ending after 12noon and the front desk person say's, we would have to call in the morning, it would be due to the weather depending on whether they could authorize a late check out. Moments later, our co-worker (in the suite) calls down and request a late check out and they tell her 2pm. I called downstairs to complain and they give us 2pm check-out also (so we think). The next day, we come back from our event at 1:30 and go to our rooms to check out and our key card is decoded and doesn't work. Check this out, after being locked out of our rooms, we had to show ID to get back in. Never no apologies for inconvience. The only person showing customer service consistently was the doorman. DON'T GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY!!!!
HOTEL HELL!! – Pretentious is about the only thing this hotel has going for it...and maybe location. If you like to spend your money on absolutely terrible service then this is THE place to do it. I have never experienced so many money hungry wannabes (a.k.a Staff) enclosed in one building. If you don't tip them then service is absolutely nil. If you complain then you get screwed in some way. The whole concept is a joke and i can't believe that places like this exist. As far as pretty goes....there are places where people are pretty, genuine AND nice!! This is definitely not one of them!
great – This hotel is by far the best hotel in NYC!! Rooms and the service are wonderful!. There bedding and beds are fantastic, too! Location is the best, near everything.........
Every scene in one spot! – I have stayed at the BPH 4 times and will keep returning. The Deluxe rooms are the best with seperate shower / tub. Some of the views of Bryant Park are outstanding. The convenience of Koi (awesome, upscale Sushi cuisine) on site with a scene attached to it and the Cellar Bar makes this hotel such a great time. Very romantic, large rooms, good for business travelers and couples.
Location, luxury and style have made this boutique hotel a favorite with the fashion set. – The Scene
British architect David Chipperfield transformed the landmark American Radiator Building--one of Manhattan's first skyscrapers--into the pinnacle of boutique-hotel luxury. Boasting a clean and vibrant modern design, the hotel includes a 70-seat screening room, gym/spa, Koi restaurant and the swank Cellar Bar. Thanks to the location, Bryant Park is a favorite with law and finance firms, movie studios, fashion industry types and others in the entertainment business.
The over 100 luxe guest rooms (including 16 suites, two penthouses and 10 park-view terraces) feature amenities like 400-thread-count Egyptian linens, cashmere throws and towels, Tibetan rugs, daily fresh flower arrangements and Molton Brown products in the spacious travertine bathrooms. Electronic extras include high-definition TVs, Bose Wave CD players, wireless web access, cordless phones, in-room fax machines and downloadable digital movies.
Stupendous – Great service and excellent rooms make me want to come more often. The rooms are very spacious and the guest services agents are very kind and knowledgable. I din't have any problems, but if I did, I am sure that they would know how to accomodate me.
Think twice – This hotel caters to a certain type of traveller. It is not, and I repeat not, the frequent business traveller. But if you are travelling to NYC with a friend, or your wife, sure, try it. Otherwise, the basic fundaments for being a hotelier, are not grasped here. Instead they have really bad service and a substandrad value offering. And a largely incompetent staff makes your check-in. check-out, message handling etc, a burden on you (!!!). So, go there for the bar scene but do not stay there. When and if the hotel get their act together and learn what the basic hotel service is about (and understand that being pretentious doesn't make up for good service) you may try to get a room and use it for business meetings. But that is not now!
