... to my Bucket List.
When I go to New York City, I hope to gain something besides more of hate towards city life. I want to become aware of people's opinions of why they live in the city and why they like it. Usually I think people are crazy who like city life, but I need to see other people's perspective. I want to have a better understanding of apartments and hotels, ****** weather, and traffic. Let's pray that I can accomplish getting through my challenging city ...
... I didn't realise that L & L didn't like flying - they are a bit on edge!! Flight was good - just over 2 hours. A slight hick up finding where the pre- purchased shuttle pickup was but we found it in the end. 30 minute wait then a second stop at another terminal for more passengers then it was off into Manhattan. 2 hours later and we arrived at our hotel. What a nightmare the traffic was - unbelievable! ...
The crew decided to walk through Central Park. Very nice day out. Bright sunshine and more importantly, not too hot!
CP is very lush and green. Oddly, there were no flowers. Lots of people doing their THANG! Came across a long long line of nerdy types who as it turns out were waiting for tickets to performances of Shakespeare in the Park. They look desperate for some culture, not surprising as they are Americans. ...
... cosy. Old fashion who threat everyone in the same way, does not matter their attitude. You can see the regulars.... We decided to head to Times Square after the club. Patrick came with us and offered us to be our guide. So cool from him. Impressive, more than daytime. So much light, so bad for the environment!!! He explained us that there is always woks on that avenue because of these light. He showed us also a place on the underground which make a sound ...
Controlled breathing can actually enhance the effectiveness of your workouts. Are you doing sit-ups and crunches? Exhale deeply while your shoulders are lifted high. When you contract deeply through exhalation your abdominal muscles are forced to work harder.
Working out in the garden can be great exercise. Your yard needs work, and you need to get out to move. This makes for a great situation. You can improve your house and your ...

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.
