Historical Traveler Reviews Envoy Club Suites New York City
Great value, big room !
Like many others before us, we were upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom place.
The apartment was great ! Very large with separate living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, and loads of storage space. It really was like living in a proper apartment - everything was provided.
Decor was fine - not super trendy but clean and solid. Bathroom was very nicely fitted out.
One minor problem was with the bed linen. We didn't find it threadbare, as some previous reviewers have noted, however it seemed to be made from some synthetic material that produced enormous amounts of static. It was quite scary !!!
Location is pretty good - subway is five mins walk west, no problem getting cabs from outside on 1st Ave. Shops and a few bars within a block or two.
I would definitely recommend this place, especially for longer stays. Perhaps bring your own sheets though.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Envoy Club. Myself and my family booked a 2 bedroom suite for 7 nights at the end of September, and from other trip advisor reviews figured this place would be just what we required. How right we were!
We were given a corner suite with 2 good sized bedrooms and bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, and a great living room area with a view down 1st Avenue. All furnishings were comfortable and good quality and we didn't want for anything.
All staff were helpful and rooms cleaned every day.
Some comments have been made re the location of the Envoy Club. It's not in the midst of the hustle and bustle but it's a ten minute walk to the Empire State building or subway station, where the 6 train (@ every 2 minutes) takes you uptown to 5th Ave shopping and Central Park or downtown to Lower Manhattan. There's also many bars and restaurants in the immediate area.
With my 3 year old son in tow, this was an excellent place to call home for a week. When I return to New York I'll definitely stay here again. For about the same cost as a hotel room you get so much more. Book now! You won't be disappointed!
A Gem in the hay
Let me tell you a story, once a upon a time I needed a place to stay for a night, because I had to go parting for 2 nites in the big apple. I was informed about this place call... u guessed it
Envoy club, when I was told that I needed to walk to the train I said "no way", but I was advised that the Gem was the pink dimond that J-lo wears. I decided to give it a try. Oh-my-God, were my advisors hiding the Gem. This place is amazing, u know like at arms reach but u have to stretch your arm out to reach it. It's true that there is no concierge, but my room was kept clean by Maria, she is such a nice lady. All the hotel employee that I encountered were very nice.
People if you want the J-lo Gem but u know that like me u can't afford it, then settle for this beauty, and NYU is rite across the street. Can u ask for anything more. Highly recommended.
Good apartment feel
Like the Sydney visitor, I was upgraded to a 'single' which really is like a decent one-bedroom apartment. Decoration and furnishing is a little on the drab side but everything was decent quality. That said, the living room tv (there was also one in the bedroom!) had poor reception and the cd player, though welcome, seemed to cause a lot of skips. The kitchen is good and well furnished with crockery, cutlery and glassware. Good bathroom too, not the world's most brilliant shower, but ok, and plenty of towels and a bathrobe.
Good size bedroom with big bed and adequate storage.
Distance from the subway is a little irritating but not terrible - it's only ten minutes walk.
Overall, for the money this was excellent value, but I don't know if I'd've been as pleased without the upgrade. If you like a hotel 'buzz' the Envoy will probbaly prove a little isolated, but if you prefer the apartment feel and like the self-catering aspect (and don't want to be in the heart of things geographically) you'll probably find it ideal.
Nice place to stay
Just finished a short stay in NYC at the Envoy. Had originally wanted to stay at the Beacon, but they were booked solid, so stumbled via internet onto the Envoy. We always prefer to stay in places that are more like small apartments. The Envoy was very clean, a nice full size kitchen and good sized bathroom. Like another reviewer mentioned, the lnens had seen better days, but there was never an issue with cleanliness. Two complaints - the bed was really uncomfortable and it's not in the most accessible part of town. Using the subway from this are to uptown is difficult as it is VERY busy, and as everyone has been saying, getting a cab in NYC these days takes awhile. Other than that, the price is great, and if you want an apartment feeling as opposed to a hotel room, this is a great place to stay.
Just finished a week and a bit stay at The Envoy Club and can't speak highly enough of it. Was upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom apartment for the price of a studio. Comparing the price to a 4 star hotel in New York you get double to three times the space with all the creature comforts of home.Only shortcomings are the nondescript neighbourhood and some of the bedlinen has seen better days but always clean and freshly laundered so can't really be too harsh.Already have recommended to friends travelling to New York in June.
Their employees were extremely helpful and nice in every way! Their rooms and bathrooms and kitchens were impeccable! The location was perfect with movie theaters, restaurants, shops, transportation, and convenient parking all within the area! I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to all of my friends!
Excellent. My favorite place to stay in NYC!
I've stayed at the Envoy Club about 5x now. It is the city's hidden gem in Murray Hill! The Envoy Club situates in a building that's also a residential building. The rooms you stay in are pretty much apartments.
Very un-hotel like, as they don't have room service, nor 24-hr. front desk service. You pay for a beautifully appointed room, and one of the biggest rooms in NYC (550 square feet for the studio apartment). I've taken advantage of their $109 rates (studio), but lately the prices have gone way up. The apartment has a KITCHEN, with a dishwasher, oven, refridgerator, stocked silverware and plates, bowls, peelers, bottle openers...everything's taken care of. Across from the kitchen is 1 of 2 closets. This first one has a 6 drawer bureau, a security safe, and about 5 shelves up top. The 2nd closet stores your bathrobe, and iron/ironing board. The bathroom is beautiful. Clean white tiles, 1 big mirror above the sink, 1 lit magnifying mirror that bends and extends, and a 2nd large mirror directly behind you if you were standing at the sink. The open glass shower doors are refreshingly liberating, the water pressure's great, and the toiletries are luxe and smells great.
The main room has your TV, CD player, work/kitchen desk that features 5-6 magazines, a couch at the foot of the bed, a glass table in front of the couch, and the sumptous bed that prominently sits on a dark mahogany bedpost. The location is super quiet, yet uneventful. Borders Books, 24-7 Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins, bagel shop, and the Empire State Building are all nearby. Tremendous value (big room, huge kitchen, beautiful bathroom). I love the Envoy Club!
We just came home from a fantastic weekend at the Envoy Club in New York. We stayed in a fantastic "studio" measuring 550 sq. feet! The bed was great, the view of the Empire State Building was great, the bathroom, the kitchen and the bathroom was fantastic! All in all the best I've ever stayed at. The service is somewhat limited but they do try to satisfy whatever need you might have. The location is a bit off, but the cabs run frequently just outside the door and for $5 you get everywhere...
Worth every penny...
My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment in the envoy club. The rooms were spacious and well furnished. The kitchen had all the plates and utensils for an intimate dinner.
We haved stayed in other hotels in NYC before and they are usually so small that the door hits the bed. I am definetly staying here everytime I spend the night in the city.
Negatives: A couple of blocks from the subway and no concierge to help plan the free time. (since we are from the nyc suburbs, that wasn't a problem for us) They have a VCR but a DVD player would be nice.

... it would of cost an arm and a leg plus I've been to like 23 or 24 haha a bit ridic for a necklace I thought anyway I love them both. After I got my jewellery I was a bit peckish so I thought I'd try a New York slice of pizza (when in new york) so I went to two boots pizza, it's where carrie and Miranda go in one ep of satc). So I'm there pretty pumped and hungry and I order a slice, who wouldn't read about ...
... much conversation!) and then headed back to our hotel, all ready to fall into bed. The clock on top of one of the buildings all lit up like a Christmas tree told us it was 10:09pm and 20 degrees. A beautiful night in New York City.
Note: According to Stephanie there is far too many Starbuck cafe's around in New York, there is one on every corner. She said "No wonder its the city that never sleeps, they drink way too much coffee!!!"
The girls were all up early and packed ready for their train trip home. A couple of the gypsy buses wouldn't pick us up because of their suitcases but eventually one came and the driver was very nice and helped us get the cases on.
We got to 42nd street and then had to walk the 8 blocks to 34th street to the Amtrak station. We had to wait a little while until they posted which gate they were leaving from.
The gate ...

We had a very pleasant trip of about 4 1/2 hours and eventually arrived at Boston South Stn.
Plan had been to de-train and transfer to a local commuter line which would deposit us about 3k from our hotel. Then phone hotel for car to come and pick us up..
After some deliberation. transfer involved several turnstiles and as many escalators it was decided to bight ...
... around 5th avenue and dropped our purchases home before heading a few blocks down to walk to Pier 83 where we caught a Circle Line cruise around the bottom half of Manhattan island. Again there wasn't a cloud in the sky and it was nice to see the city from a bit of a distance, and travel underneath the Brooklyn Bridge. After the cruise, about 5:30pm ish, we went to the Empire State Building and had timed this perfectly as we saw the city in the evening sun just ...
