Suur Õun...polnud enam nii suur nagu esimesel vaatlemisel.Kuna Chicagos on ka suht palju pilevlõhkujaid, sis tänavapilt NYs suud ammuli ei ajanud. Küll aga nautisin Manhattani sildaderohkust, Queensist läbisõitmist ja Brooklyni poolt kah. Linnas jalutamist oli päris palju selle 2 päeva jooksul. Ei jõudnud poolt Central Parkigi läbi jalutada. See …
... day, Elena was feeling sick so we took a NyQuil movie day to help her recover. The following day we decided to find our inner artists and we headed to SOHO, a shopping heaven in NYC. Agreeing with us was Rihanna, who we spotted in a rather expensive boutique. We thought we wouldn't encounter anything more exciting then the sea of people gushing over the R&B singer, but then we were pulled into ...
Late breakfast today before setting off on our hop on hop off bus, but before that we walked to the Rockefeller Centre which was fantastic! Security is really tight everywhere and it took us ages to go through the process of buying tickets, going through security and getting to the top, but boy, was it worth it. Hard to believe this beautiful building was built around 1930. No doubt it has had upgrades over ...
... so I ‘HAD’ to go shopping. Jane said she would like to come along so we headed off to Soho via canal Street again.
We spent about 30-45 mins on Canal street and I bought a dress but I was itching to go to Soho. I had done quite a bit of planning the day before and had written down 6 shops I wanted to go to Soho including H&M and Top Shop. We managed to find all of them and I spent the next 5 hours having the time of my life trying on ...
... we had to go through airport security, along a bit of a lengthy path and then we came out to the site, which has the footprint of the two buildings that have been made into giant waterfalls, and they have every single persons name around the edge, so all of the people from each tower, all of the service men and women and the people from the fourth flight that crashed into a field. That I didn't know about, because the passengers on that ...

Historical Traveler Reviews 70 park avenue hotel - a Kimpton Hotel New York City
I stay at a lot of Kimpton Group Hotels and love them but this one was a bit disappointing. When we checked into our room it had not been cleaned. The bathrooms and rooms are small but very nicely appointed with flat screen tvs, nice linens and throws. Very sleek design but bathrooms are a bit archaic with hardly any room to move around.
Before arriving we had a change in plans... we contacted the hotel and requested that one of our rooms contain two double beds instead of one king... they informed us on three different occasions that this would not be a problem. We also told them that if we could not switch rooms for whatever reason we would like a roll-a-way bed because on their website it stated that these were available upon request. Upon arrival, 70 Park informed us that there was no such conversation made with them about switching the rooms (Note: Both my wife AND myself spoke with the hotel several days prior to arrival). We were also told by managment that in order to get a roll-a-way bed, we would have to had contacted them days before so they could make arrangments to get one from another hotel! We checked into our room (which we were told that it was upgraded because of the inconvience) only to find that we couldn't even walk around the room without one of us sitting on the bed because lack of space. We also found that our toilitries were opened and used, there was hair in the sink and the bathtub. As we turned back the sheets for bed, we found hair ALL OVER THE SHEETS! We contacted the front desk and found out that because it was Christmas, they had let all of their housekeeping staff leave! A manager showed up to the room with sheets in hand, but it took her almost an hour to make the bed! I even had to help her! There was not any thermostat control and it was so hot we had to sleep with the windows open in 20 degree weather. 70 Park also doesn't believe in changing the sheets daily, you must request this service. That was obvious our first night. Also, if you would like to have a drink at the bar downstairs, a glass of house wine will set you back $15. (Note: half a glass) We travel every 4 months to NYC and thought we would try a new area of town and this hotel is not worth the money comparable to other hotels in Midtown Manhattan. We do not expect to have service and quality that we receive in our own homes, however cleanliness is a huge issue. If you can stand the filth, you may be able to stand 70 Park.
Not New - Rehabed
Just stayed there and was disappointed. Paid $370 for a very small room with a tiny bathroom. No place to keep a suitcase open. Bathroom window had duct tape on the outside. When you look closely you can see that Kimpton re-habed an old hotel when they should have gutted it. Would not return but would stay across the street at the Kitano. Much nicer.
I've stayed at Kimpton hotels before (Burnham in Chicago is very nice) but I'm now wary.
I won't be staying here again
The room was nicely decorated, that's the best thing I can say about this hotel. The heating/cooling system did not work. The room temp was so hot it was impossible to sleep. There was a beautiful flat screen TV in the room however the sound didn't work and after 2 hours the "engineers" were unable to fix it. I was not offered another room. I was charged for parking even though parking was included in the room rate. The bathroom was so small it was difficult to move around in. Don't be fooled by the address. The service here is terrible.
I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights from 27 Sept to 1st Oct. I have mixed views of the hotel.
I would definitely stay here again. Rooms small but very new and up to date. Great linens, amenities, high tech gadgets.
Great Columbus Day Weeken
Great hotel. Convenient location. Enjoyed the wine social hour from 4:30 to 5:30. Supurb in all respects.
A very special trip
My mom and I just returned from a long weekend trip to NYC Sept 9/16-9/19. We booked a package through Travelocity and were lucky enough to have 70 Park Ave as a hotel option. The staff was super friendly and helpful and we have special thanks for Rapheal and Lilian. The room (a 2 queen bed 5th floor room) was beautiful with a huge plasma screen and comfy bed linens. The hotel restaurant is still not open so we enjoyed the free continental breakfast in the mornings. Location is great, being 4 blocks or so from the Grand Central station subway stop. We were able to walk to Rockefeller Center from the hotel easily. Thanks 70 Park Ave for a great stay!
Just visited New York and stayed in the newly refurbished 70 Park Avenue Hotel, part of the Kimpton group. The hotel has just re-opened and the dining room was not completed when we were there, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very nicely decorated, with excellent 42" plasma TV's being the feature. The only complaint we had was the size of the bath, which was a little small. As the dining room was unfinished, complimentary breakfast was provided to all guests in the comfortable lobby of the hotel. It was a really nice touch and should be continued. The staff were very helpful and the concierge was excellent and helped us with all our requirements during our stay. Top of the list was his recommendation for a restaurant called Terrace in the Sky, which was well worth the 15min taxi ride, enjoying panoramic views of the city with top class food. The location of the hotel was ideal, within easy walking distance of Grand Central and also 5th Avenue. We will definitely return on our next visit to New York!
Three of us in New York for a shopping trip. One had been twice recently and was disappointed in Manhattan hotels, while it was the first visit for the other two. We booked into the recently refurbished 70 Park Avenue Hotel, corner of East 38th. Really central location for sightseeing and shopping. Fantastic stylish decor in reception and the soon to be opened bar next door. Compact but beautifully appointed bathroom with all toiletries, hairdryer etc. Very quiet good sized rooms in the back which have large flat screen TV and DVD, fantastic lighting and comfortable beds.
