Historical Traveler Reviews The Muse Hotel New York New York City
LOVED The Muse in NYC!
A friend and I recently spent a long weekend at the Muse and LOVED it. The beds were superb, the bathroom roomy, and bathroom amenties excellent. What really sold me, though, was the fact that, on a Sunday, we had problems with the toilet flushing completely. A call to the front desk, and a repair was there within 3 minutes and had it fixed in 5!!! I call that service. PLUS, the location simply can't be beat.
Comfy but .....
Nicely appointed boutique hotel. Atmosphere is the thing. Rooms are fine, comfy beds, good towels and soap, but ASK FOR A ROOM ON THE BACK!!!! A 6th floor room on the front was the noisiest I've ever stayed in - NY, London, Chicago - anywhere! They did change my room for the second night, still 6th floor but on the back, and it was fine. Staff is nice but not very efficient. Switchboard told a business associate I wasn't registered 24 hours after I'd checked in. It has possibilities but quality of staff needs to improve significantly.
Very chic hotel in the heart of Times Square, steps to theatre, attractions, etc. Room was nice, very contemporary style, while I encountered a couple of small problems in the room,the service was excellent. Restaurant was very good and expensive. I would stay here again.
Great place to stay!!!
Very Chic and intimate hotel with great service. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Room was quite spacious. We had a great experience here and would definitely stay here again.
Stayed at the Muse the weekend of November 22nd 2002. Hotel was lovely, from the quick bellman at the door, to the smooth check-in. we were upgraded to a king suite, as they had no rooms with 2 doubles for us four ladies, suite was lovely, and management was very accomadating to our concerns. My previous NYC hotel stay was the Avalon, the Muse is as lovely, and for theater going is a wonderful choice, and to be near NBC for today show fans, St. Patricks etc. I would certainly stay here again, and highly recommend to friends.
The best I've ever had in a hotel! I was met at the curb as I stepped out of the taxi and through a headset the employee announced my arrival to the front desk. Once inside the cozy hotel lobby, I was handed my room key as I approached and went immediately to my room. What a treat! The accommodations were lovely, spacious, modern and clean. I did not want to leave my room except to hang out in the comfortable bathroom! I highly recommend this place. We're returning to the city for business next month and are staying here again! They topped the W Times Square where we stayed 2 months ago. The bar area, called The District, felt like someones living room. The restaurant was great, too. Total thumbs up!
Ok, this hotel is in a GREAT location: half a block from Times Square and the TKTS Half-Price Booth! Couldn't ask for a more perfect location...BUT>>>>>>>>>mediocre service and forgettable lodgings. Lobby is not that attractive and is not "inviting" or comfortable (read: Haute style over substance). You don't want to linger in the lobby. Service is also mediocre (help is more interested in "image" than "service"). Room was OK but VERY NOISY on the 4th floor!! ONE COULD HEAR EVERY STREET SOUND. Staff would not change room nor did they seem that "caring." Interactive TV menu would not work; no wastebaskets in bedroom; Closet size gym with poor equipment. Overall, a bad value.
I would not stay there again, except for that fabulous location......
You call this hotel Boutique? 24HR. concierge! They need allot more training. Rooms comfortable, but the furniture is so cheap. If your charging these rates, get some real service and more expensive furniture.
What a wonderful boutique hotel! Excellent location, spacious rooms, feather-down beds/pillows, modern, clean, big & modern bathroom, cozy eclectic atmosphere, great staff, great service, A+ all the way. I can't stay anywhere else after this. I love this hotel.
I was impressed by the attentive and knowledgeable staff. The customer service is really great. The accomodations are luxurious and relaxing. Its amazing to be so close to all the chaos of Time Square and be so so secluded in my room following a busy day. The staff provided great restaurant recommendations where the locals eat and all of them were outstanding.
The only drawback was the room service provided by their restaurant, which took too long just for a cup of tea and it was luke warm when it arrived, otherwise I would give it a 5.

... but still very humid and the subway buildings were stifling – although the train was air conditioned.
As we walked back to the subway station, we found it interesting to walk through the Upper East Side. Madison Avenue had lots of smart shops but most of the buildings seemed to be apartments, some of them had concierges and were quite grand. Large numbers of the rich and famous have and do ...
So after a long haul with transfers at Melbourne and Los Angeles we arrived at a rain soaked NYC with evidence of the recent snows still about.
Hit the ground running with a visit to some of the local shops and then into bed around midnight (ish). Up at 0600 for an early morning walk around parts of Central Park while both girls went to the Gym here at the Manhattan Club. Followed this with breakfast at a ...
... and asked for some spare change for her help, to be honest it was well worth it!! We entered through the turnstiles and the train pulled in straight away and we boarded. After a couple of stops the passenger numbers thinned and we were all able to sit down. Our stop was the last stop of the line and you need to be on the first five cars to be able to get off or the rest of the cars remain in the tunnel!! We were on the second car so we were all good to ...
Woke up early to another sparkling day in NYC - little did we know that we were in for one of the best days of our trip so far. First things first we got some takeaway breakfast bagels and walked twenty minutes to the corner of 42nd and 12th streets, where the Circle Line Boat Tours begin - something we had all been looking forward to. We got on the 11.30 Landmark Cruise, which navigates around the lower half of Manhattan and back again, passing all ...
... I got a chocolate with cookie crunch and Hinesh got the vanilla and chocolate twist with cookie crunch. They were gooooood. We decided to enjoy the ice cream across the road in Bryant Park. Last time I was here Fashion Week was on so the white tents were set up, this time they had set up seats and tables for people to hang out. So we sat there enjoying our cones and watching the people.
We finally head to the library and there are so many people there so the pics are hard to ...
