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.

... I later found out. I headed to Howard Beach where I switched to the JFK Air Train. The whole trip took me a little over an hour.
When I got on the plane, I sat next to a young guy named Patrick. He is a Stony Brook Ph. D student who is moving to London to teach in a college. We had a nice chat. Flight took off at 9:00 pm.
... while in New York.
After the boat ride we wandered around China Town and Little Italy until dinner time. They are both a whole other world inside the city. After dinner we rushed up to Harlem to go to Amateur Night at the Apollo Theatre. What a great experience! Anyone can sign up to perform and the crowd chooses who gets through to the finals held at the end of ...
... are also some expensive places too, particularly with the falling Aussie. We had a great time in NYC but it was time to go so we headed out to the airport, Alice to go home and Nick and I to go to LA. Our driver was from Pakistan and wanted to talk about cricket when we told him we were from Sydney and then about Bradford when we said we were originally English. We couldn't really help on either. Next stop ...
... Centre; one during the day and one at night, although the weather wasn't too great at night and actually ended up hailing while we were up there so the view wasn't as good as it would usually be.
My friend had been to Chicago (the next stop of our trip) before and had fallen in love with iHop pancake house. We couldn't leave the big apple without visiting one here too so we headed out on our first subway adventure towards East Village. We ...
... incident with a black guy who's suing the police dept for 75million! We had lunch at an Irish pub just off Times Square which was awesome, the food is great and Huge portions to share around the table. The boys were pretty knackered so we went into Ripleys Believe it or not which was pretty cool - lots to keep everyone interested. All in all, a GREAT first day in NYC, the highlight definitely being Central ...
