Historical Traveler Reviews The Iroquois New York City
Quiet and Close to everything
We just returned from 5 days in New York City during the Thanksgiving holiday. My husband and an 18 year old daughter, and 21 year old son.
We all loved the cozy, quiet hotel. It is close to everything we needed and not a large loud chain hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We had two adjoining rooms and they were all we hoped for. We will stay there on our next visit!
Great Place in the City
Stayed here Thanksgiving 2002 and loved it. Needed to switch rooms due to some plumbing and were taken care of immediately. Awesome location to theaters and times square. Can be pricey, but if you find a deal, take it!
"Elegance, Elegance, Elegance!!!"
We stayed in the lovely room 500, which almost connects to one of the elevators. So easy was the access, in and out, that we did just that, came and went frequently. We used to stay at the Westbury, famous for its high-powered perfoming clients, but have switched to Iroquois because of its incredibly convenient proximity to the theater district and all the wonderful vibrance and life of the Times Square areas. We have found a new home in The City, where the staff seems like that in our own home.
Ok, but would not stay here again
Hotel is ok. Just not really my style. I am sure I got the smallest room in the house, must be a specialty of quikbook. Staff was very nice though.I happened to walk into the Mansfield Hotel across the street on this visit and found my next hotel! It had an aura that Iroquois was missing.Fitness room was adequate.
Wonderful Place to Stay
We found this hotel to be quiet, clean, convenient and friendly. The room we had was not large but lovely. Only complaint would be that the air conditioning did not work well in our room. The staff is very accomodating and the restaurant was wonderful.
Treated like Royalty
My husband and I stayed at the Iroquois back in Thanksgiving 2001. We took advantage of cheaper rooms to support the tourist industry after the dreadful sept. 11th. We wouldn't normally have been able to afford this hotel and as budget travellers Im sure we looked a little out of place showing up with Back-packs instead of Prada suitcases !!!!!
However we were treated wonderfully......the staff recognizing us after just a few hours, opening door and generally helping us find great places to visit and cool restaurants. The rooms were beautiful and not really too small by New York standards. Gorgeous down comforters, white robes and a bathroom to die for. If I hadn't been so keen to see more of New York I could have stayed in that bed forever !! Being thanksgiving there was a beautiful Xmas tree up in the lobby and constant hot cider available for free.Thanks you Iroquois.If we ever win the lottery we will be back on a regular basis.
Lovely BUT noisy
I had a 'boutique' room at the back on the third floor, then fifth and eventually eight and even after the third move of room the noise from adjoining air-con units was awful. I can't understand hoteliers that spend a fortune on the decor but don't double or triple glaze rooms!
The only place I stay
This small hotel is among the most charming, attentive, accommodating, and comfortable places I've visited. Although the rooms are a bit small, they are cleverly arranged so that I never felt cramped. The beds are clean, comfortable, and full of fluffy pillows. The staff is friendly, and knew me by name after my first night. The restaurant is top-notch, too. A very nice stay!
Classic Elegance and Old-World Charm!
This hotel was recommended to us by friends, and they were right! The Old-World Elegance of this classy hotel was just what we wanted for our romantic getaway! The beds were comfortable, and the rooms were amazingly upscale for the price we paid. We got to visit Broadway and Fifth Avenue, and when we returned to our suite's living room, we felt like we were in a fine Paris hotel...we will very likely return again for an encore of our own "Autumn in New York."
Warm and Inviting
This is a small hotel which has been completely refurbished with the utmost of taste and comfort in mind. The rooms are small, yet comfortable. There is a wonderful lounge area for espresso and a continental breakfast. It has a wonderful atmosphere and the staff is helpful and professional. If you are looking for a cozy, romantic place that is not overly expensive, this is it.

... to clean up though, it's now become a very family friendly park in the city, and boasts a great night market to check out. It also has its own Christmas tree and a skating rink. If only it wasn't raining, we would've been in higher spirits to shop and skate. The "excitement" of our short stay there though came from a large group of protesters passing by, chanting and marching about a Staten Island court's decision that the police had not used excessive force in taking down ...

You enter the pedestal and there is a museum of artefacts and information about the creation and the gift that the statue was to the United States from the French. Then you go up a winding winding narrow single file stair case up another 180ish steps to get up to the crown. It was a bit of a technique, stepping up nearly sideways with your back to the middle column and ...

It was raining heavily today to another good excuse to sleep in and rest. Left the apartment after midday and headed to Applejack's Diner for Carrot cake & coffee.
We then went to Madame Tussaud's which was loads of fun. We saw Robin Williams, Jon Bovi, George Clooney, Elton John and many others.
We walked to Grand Central Station to see this famous icon. There were soldiers ...
... say it took quite a while to finish it! We headed out to walk around midtown before wandering into Central Park to relax for the afternoon. We found a couple of spots and just lay there, reading, writing this, and watching the world go by. Absolute bliss! At one point a toddler carrying a plastic tent peg chased a pigeon around, hence the quote above. We continued to walk around Central Park, stopping every now and then to sit down and read or play Fluxx. We saw a turtle (no ...
