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.

Highline walk and Chelsea village

A travel blog entry by wilson.lim

... sort of like Subiaco with the great big stadium. Theres lots of construction going on. I guess NYC is beautifying this area. IT will be beautiful once finished. Chelsea Markets is certainly the highlight of this area. Full of eats and quaint little shops. There is this seafood shop which sells giant lobsters cooked on the spot for you. They will shuck oysters and you pay for the number you consume. All very very fresh.

Today Show, Wall Street, and 9-11 Memorial

... the case at ALL. In fact, one group was so loud and distracting I moved to the other side of the memorial so I could actually focus. I wonder why the same expectation isn't held here? NYC is busy. It is full of people and vehicles. I kept trying to imagine what it was like on that day. The amount of chaos must have been .....just.....I can't even find the words.

I LOVE New York??

... artsy with the old charm of a very old elevator. We were on the 15th floor in room 1511 which had a nice view of the street and the Chrysler Building in the distance. It was a small window to match the small room. I was prepared for the size though as I know the city is big on small spaces. The bathroom was actually bigger than I expected and very nice. The bed was comfy and there was a desk area built in. The only part of the hotel I was ...

    Great hotel! The front desk staff was very friendly. It was raining on the day we arrived and the staff gave us umbrellas and checked us in earlier than our check-in time. We were greeted with a glass of wine in the lobby which was really nice. The room was very small but only needed it to take a shower and get ready to go out. I would definitely stay there again.

    Historical Traveler Reviews 70 park avenue hotel - a Kimpton Hotel New York City

    Hotel not bad but service lacking

    from

    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.

    Very Uncomfortable Stay

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Erratic Service

    from

    I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights from 27 Sept to 1st Oct. I have mixed views of the hotel.

    Loved it!

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    70 Park Avenue Kimpton Hotel

    from

    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!

    Fabulous New Hotel

    from

    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.
