... of asking and the young man tells me that today is the Jewish holiday of Chanukah and that he is handing gifts to Jewish people. I guess that the young men are the Jewish equivalent of missionaries.
Back on 32nd Street I walk past a Korean Bookstore and go in on a whim. Inside I find something (actually many things) that my daughter would like. I take it up to the counter, the Korean man serving looks at me very quizzically asking if this is ...
... District. Wall Street was imposing with huge corporate buildings. They were still clearing up from the hurricane. Many buildings, streets and subway stations were still closed. We walked probably 70 blocks, each providing some really unique sights. To fuel up we got some $1 slice pizza to go (NY for take away). Exhausted, we and a snooze back at the hotel for a coupe of hours. We hadn't slept for 30 hours! We must have been running on the ...

We get the feeling that despite best effort, like the Giant Panda, the printed word is approaching extinction. Not that there wont be books, the paper world seems to be on the Way Out.Sad, very sad.
Still raining. My new purple raincoat is earning its keep already.

On the top floor of the steamer was a big dance floor playing classic disco. Before boarding, I was a bit worried about being the oldest swinger in town, but was pleased to see that the ages were mixed, and everyone was having a blast...including me! It was my last night in NYC, and what a way to end my trip. The boat returned to dock around 11, and I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Chambers Hotel New York City
Had the quickest most incoherant walk thru of the room by Hose, he couldnt wait to get his tip and go.booked into a queen size suite $500 plus tax per night. The bath hadnt been cleaned, hairs from previous ocupant. The rug was really grubby and hadnt been hoovered, the curtains were also filthy. It has been totally remodeled inside but done cheaply and not finished off very well, a bit make shift. The bar was ok but when my husband wanted to put drinks on our room he was constantly asked "are you sure you are staying here?" very annoying. Very gimicky and not value for money, breakfast had 20% service and $5 gratuity added for room service, the cafe across the road far better. Over priced and over rated.
Terrific Midtown Choice
Outstanding service and above average rooms. Perfect hotel to enjoy the spirit of New York. Ask for a room on the 56th Street side, as high as possible.
Discrete, stylish and memorable
We stayed at the Chambers for 3 nights in August 2004 and it was an amazing experience. It was recommended by a friend who often stays there and I have to thank my friend for telling me about such a great place.
The location is excellent - close to Central Park, Times Square, Fifth Avenue shopping area and subway lines. Walking by the hotel, you can miss it because it is rather anonymous except for a pair of large basketweave wooden doors. The signage is tastefully subtle.
The lobby is cosy and sumptuous and has the feel of a very luxurious townhouse. I love the elevators - the sides are clear glass so you can see the interior of the elevator shaft. The hallways are nicely decorated, looks like it's different on every floor. One thing I notice is that everything (the lobby, the hallways, etc...)look a lot smaller than I perceived them on the website. Chambershotel. It doesn't distract from the wonderful boutique feel of the hotel. Reminds me of some hotels I stayed at in London.
We got a corner room (deluxe) on the ninth floor. The size is actually very spacious. The layout of each floors allow 3 deluxe rooms in front and 4 smaller rooms in back. So if you asked for a standard room, your rooms will always be in the back. Because the hotel is on a smaller street, the view was of nearby towers. The windows open up like french doors so you can hear all of the sound of NY if you so choose. We prefer the quiet so we kept it closed most of the time.
The color scheme is muted with a shots of purple and yellow, charcoal carpeting throughout. The little glass-top writing desk was beautiful but the accompanying metal vintage chair is not very comfortable. I had to work on the yellow mohair corner chair - which is really really fab.
The bed is very comfortable, with lots of extra pillows - all down-filled. The pillow top is also down-filled. With the black-out curtain drawn, we slept very well.
The bathroom is fabulous and the showers with the 8-inch head is to die for. It has separate volume and temperature control - looks like very quality Dornbracht fixtures. With the shower, you can blast yourself with a very very strong downpour of water. The bathroom products were very large size bottles of Bvlgari shampoos and conditioners. We were also given Bumble and Bumble products on another day.
We had the weekend package which comes with a complimentary continental breakfast at the Town restaurant. It is a very beautiful double height restaurant with padded suede walls and strings of crystal beadings throughout. The service was elegant and attentive. We were accidentally charge for one complimentary breakfast which was quickly cleared up with the concierge at check out.
Nice touches include a type-written note delivered to our room suggesting what to do in town. We took an advice of seeing a musical called "Caroline, or Change" described as "a musical tour the force" by the Chambers and actually, it was an amazing show. Got a standing ovation. Everyday, delicious chocolates were placed on the bed after the room is cleaned each time. Also, the keys to the rooms are large exquisite metal key, not one of those electronic ones.
Overall, I thought that the hotel was very well appointed, luxurious and memorable. I would definitely recommend this hotel my friends.
My husband and I travel 1st class quite a bit, Ritz, Four Seasons, etc. It's worth it to us rather than chance a bad stay that could ruin our visit. The last time we were in NY we dined at Town located in Chambers. The food and service were exceptional so we decided to give the hotel a chance.
The service was fabulous. We were treated well for five days and our room was comfortable and clean. (Wish we had some drawers though!) But that is my only negative comment. It was a great trip and we appreciated the remarkable guest care.
I returned to my room at 1:30 am after theatre and dinner to fine the door to my very small room wide open, someone forced the door open. Nothing was taken for whatever reason, needlesss to say I left the next morning. In their defense, the staff was very kind and the manager responded well. The room was average and the shower is fab but has no door and the floor basically floods when you're done...not amazing. don't bother.
Very happening lobby and courteous staff. The rooms are pretty standard but the bathrooms are generous (especially the shower). Excellent location just off Fifth Avenue!
Very cool, hip design
The Chambers is the perfect hotel for young guests willing to pay for cool design in an excellent midtown location in NY. The shower is the absolute best, and the beds and sheets are first-rate. Some rooms facing the street (56th) can be noisy at night. The bar and restaurant of the hotel are great, albeit pricey. Overall, this is by no means a cheap hotel, but its sleek design beats the flowery bedspreads elsewhere and it is better than most other hip NY hotels, at least those in midtown. It is also small enough to have pretty good service, unlike many other hp hotels.
Sloppy food, sloppy service - is this New York 'Style' ?
I have returned from a 5 day trip to New York today. I stayed at the Chambers Hotel with 5 girlfriends. We found the hotel sadly lacking in many ways. The service was inflexible and slow in every area (eg 1. ordering pancakes with berries for breakfast, actually getting pancakes with bananas - no explanation - they didn't care ! 2. Ordering 3 glasses of wine and a glass of champagne, actually getting 3 half empty glasses - red wine cold, champagne in a wine glass and for the excrutiating price of $14 a glass ! Real stylish ! 3. Bar menu at night has limited choices - 3 of us want burgers (yes that was the best thing on the menu !) they've run out - nothing else on menu, but no we're not allowed to order from the room service menu, despite availability and better choices. We order just potato chips instead - a handful for $8 - what a rip off ! Overall the atmoshere in the place was more frosty than the weather which was 10 below , and that was because of the service which was deplorable (apart from Jose - Concierge). If you want to throw your money away in the interests of style I suggest you pay a visit to the far more acceptable St Regis or Plaza round the corner - despite appearances, it will actually cost you more or less the same from the UK.
Very modern and design. Good looking people, nice bar, great restaurant (expensive!), and pretty nice rooms (if you have one overlooking the street). I like the location and having a DVD player in your room is just great. The service can be slow and some staff looks better than they sound, but overall it is very nice and pleasant hotel. And definitely not boring!!
An expensive disappointment
If you stay at this well located hotel do not accept a room at the back. You will be subjected to incredible noise from the heating and air conditioning system - particularly if you have the misfortune to be housed on the lower floors. While I was charged $255 per night, the rugs were torn, the shower was cold and the room was unsatisfactory - but noone seemed to care!! A nice touch was a piece of fruit left by your bed in the evening - except for the fact I received a bruised apple that was totally unappetizing. There are many poasitive aspects to the hotel but the attitude of the staff and the insensitivity to my complaints made my stay very unpleasant.
