Historical Traveler Reviews 6 Columbus - A SIXTY Hotel New York City
Take a very old, tired hotel, give it some fancy decor and duvets, put cow hide in the elevators and you've got 6 Columbus. The walls are paper thin, the plumbing is noisy, the doors are only able to close with a slam and the narrow hallways carry echoes and the sound of your neighbors talking. Add to that the view of an airshaft covered in bird droppings and a window splatted with concrete that the owners haven't bothered to have cleaned off and I submit this hotel as the worst night's sleep I've ever had. In the morning I asked to speak to the hotel manager. The guy at the desk named Saye said he was the manger. I asked are you THE manager, again he said yes. I politely told him about my problems and he said he could only apologise but no-one else had complained. Note: the hotel had only been open 3 weeks, so no exactly a great record. I asked for his card and he gave me it along with his title - Assistant Front Desk Manager. Yes, he lied that he was THE manager of the hotel. He refused to accept any responsibility for the quality of the hotel or my visit and simply turned his back on me and walked into the back office. And the cost for all of this? $400 for a 10X12 foot room.
We enjoyed THE BEST night's sleep EVER in NYC. At one of those times of the year when you think you'll never be able to afford to stay in New York City again, and almost not even get ANY room, we were able to book this hotel at a ridiculous rate only 2X the national debt. On arrival the extremely nice, laid back, and casually attired door men (2) greeted us, ran in and told the front desk staff our names, so we could be "GREETED" and then the very helpful Joelle told us the two nicest things you can hear when checking in: (1) you are getting an upgrade; and (2) your room is ready. This was great, as we were heading to an important biz mtg. The room was darkly lit (only worse in Paris) and one of the design themes is the use of vintage 50's-70's furniture. Ouch! That was me banging my shins on the sharp corner of the king platform bed, ... but Hey, we are Hip!!! The TV was the slightest-bit hung crooked, but so was the art, and who cares, we are HIP! The bathroom was great, even if the tub was more than a bit too narrow and the hooks hanging the shower curtain were sprung so it came off the rod.....but Hip! The water was HOT, the amenities LUXURIOUS, the bed THE MOST COMFORTABLE IN LAST 10 YEARS, absolutely the BEST night's sleep in NYC, totally QUIET, and isn't this what counts. You cannot entertain in your mini-suite (emphasis on MINI), but one can work at the desk while the other luxuriates in sleep in the tiny but adequate Bedroom. The continental breakfast in the lobby is less than that but with Starbucks next door and Whole Foods in Time Warner Center, right across the street, it's not a big deal. Prices are very reasonable most of the year, and at the crazy busy time of our trip 6 Col Circle was in line with the city-wide outrageous rates. We visit Lincoln Center regularly, so we WILL be back. But watch the corners of those platform beds!!!
6 Columbus, located just across the street from the AOL Time Warner building, is a great addition to the New York City hotel scene.
We too stumbled into a last-minute reservation via quikbook ... we figured we would likely end up in one of the least desirable rooms - and we did ... the room was tiny, there is virtually no furniture (other than the bed), and storage space is definitely limited ... on the plus side, the double-bed was extremely comfortable ... having a view of an air ventilation shaft has its positive side: no street noise ... due to a mishap (i won't mention here), we were upgraded mid-visit to a larger room (with furniture!) ... this was a little nicer and had a view of 58th rather than an air shaft ... the front desk staff and doormen were all nice and tried to go out of their way to be friendly and helpful ... the other persons working at the hotel (e.g. support staff) were obviously not counseled in the art of interacting with guests which resulted in some disappointing experiences ... all in all, it was a positive experience ... the location is great and the rooms were pretty good (who goes to NYC to hang out in their hotel room anyway?) .... I would stay there again given the right rate ...
Tiny chic boutique hotel
I booked the "pod room" at quikbook for $220 a day. Hotel is tiny and
chic. The pod room has a full size bed and almost no furniture at all
-- no desk, sofa, etc. That didn't bother me since I was not there for business anyway. Bed is EXTREMELY comfortable. Bathroom's ventilation system doesn't work too well -- like most NYC hotels. Complimentary breakfast (bakery) DELICIOUS. Location is the best -- close to subway, Time Warner Center, Central park, Lincoln center and
lots of good restaurants (Jean Georges, Masa and Per Se all within walking distance!!) Very good for people who want to stay away from Time Squares but do not want to miss out the night life and good food...
I got a good rate from Quikbook and decided to risk staying at a new hotel. I was unaware that this was a much hyped hotel until reading some web postings. If I could afford a bigger room, I'd consider coming back there to stay in that area again
I actually booked a room at this hotel as a back up if Priceline didn't work out, but we decided to give it a shot. I am so glad we did! I was traveling to NY for an overnight with a friend. We wanted a good location and something besides your average bland, boring hotel room. You get it here!
My husband and I stayed at 6 Columbus the first week it was open for business! The address is 6 Columbus Circle, but the building is actually on 58th street (behind the Columbus Circle Shops). That was a little weird, but don't get me wrong it is still a great location! The front desk had us listed for a queen room, but easily changed us to a king superior when I showed my quikbook confirmation paperwork. We had a room on the 8th floor facing the back with a view of apartment buildings, but I didn't care...I wasn't in New York City to spend time in my room looking out the window.
Great new place
6 Columbus is billed as a "boutique hotel," but if "boutique" means snooty, that was not the case here. The staff was super friendly and helpful, allowing us to check in at 10 a.m. and upgrading our room!! The hotel just opened, so everything is super new and clean. Lots of pillows, and a big comfy comforter. On the slightly down side, I couldn't manage to get the room cool enough.
There is a lovely continental breakfast with good coffee and sweet and savory little pastries. They leave you a brownie on your pillow at night.
We got great introductory price ($275 for a Saturday night and $199 for a Sunday night). I'm sure that was an aberration
Stayed at this hotel during its first week open. Rooms are BIG for NYC -- the standard queen is 200 sq. ft, deluxe is 250. The bathroom was large, furnishings modern, very cool vibe. Flat-screen TVs and iHome docks in every room, along with some other cool design features. The lobby isn't much but does make a nod to a 60s-style living room. Blue Ribbon sushi will be the in-house restaurant, which isn't too shabby, but in the meantime a continental breakfast was provided by Bouchon Bakery (also not too shabby). As it was opening week every effort was made by staff to be helpful, polite, etc. They were great.
