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.

... the news of our engagement to another person, which was nice. Later we went to Coney Island, the seaside out in Brooklyn where I'd always wanted to go. We had some fantastic posh street food at a Smorgesboard which had just opened, sort of posh little food van versions of popular indy restaurants from the city - an arty, foody heaven. We also walked along the busy boardwalk soaking up all the people and the lovely weather. Coney Island is a ...
... all very emotional and we all had warm fuzzy feelings watching Ollie and Tracey say their vows. After the ceremony we all made our way to the Gramercy Park Hotel where the reception was being held. While Ollie and Tracey had their photos taken everyone waited in the hotel bar. The boys played pool while the girls sipped on cocktails in fancy glasses. The hotel was really opulent and elegant which set the mood for ...
... an audience. Speaking of the audience, it numbered about 6,000! The production also featured 3D screens and interactive wrist bands that lit up at certain stages in the show. T-shirt canons were fired, dancers flew down from the roof and a giant Statue of Liberty moved and spoke (with the voice of Whoopi Goldberg). This was a particularly good choice of musical for our tour as the story line featured all ...
... br> Afternoon highlight was broadway show - the lion King - WOW!!! Quality performance all around and the kids LOVED every moment.
Early evening - dinner in room (get little kitchenette that allows us to stock up and make basic meals)
I think we are almost there in terms of over-coming the jet-lag - nicely adjusted to North American time zone..
... itself - the two enormous waterfall pools which stand in the Towers footprints , surrounded by the names of those who died - is so simple and serene, but absolutely perfect. Such a fitting tribute. These pools now bask in the shadow of the gigantic Freedom Tower, the reaches a dizzying height into the sky defiantly. Sam and Dave also went through the 9/11 Museum (it was inappropriate for Amy) which was brilliantly put together. For such a tragedy ...
