The New York Palace Hotel
Travel Blogs from New York City
Two nights and one day in New York to recover from the long flight before heading off to Canada. Stayed at the New York Palace Hotel with a lovely view of St Patricks Cathedral from our room. It was raining on our day in NYC but still a lot of snow around from the blizzard 2 days earlier. Walked to Grand Central Station and then had a walk through …
Nach einem reichhaltigen amerikanischen Frühstück, ging es im Osten von Midtown mit der Seilbahnfahrt nach Roosevelt Island los. Danach klapperten wir verschieden besondere Hochhäuser ab (Trump Tower, Seagram Building, Sony Building). Über die Park Avenue ging es zur Grand Central Station, in der wir einer informativen Audiotour folgten. Die Flü …
Heute nahmen wir den Zug nach New York. Dabei durchfuhren wir das doch sehr schöne Connecticut. Aber: Diese Lügner! Erst ködern sie einen mit free Wi-fi und dann geht es nicht. Die Rede ist von Amtrak, der amerikanischen Bundesbahn. Das Gute war jedoch, dass wir für die 4,5 stündige Fahrt jeweils nur knapp 40 $ zahlten und die Sitze sehr bequem …
Yesterday we drove down to New York City, where I used to live, to see friends, get haircuts, and pick up a few things before heading to Japan. I got to go to my friend Wyatt's house and hang out yesterday, and had dinner and hung out with my friend's Isabel and Antoine last night while my parents met some grownups for dinner. Today, we had hot …
... days washed away the humidity, leaving a hot, dry day, with a welcome cooling breeze. I started on Fifth Avenue and walked uptown through the park, before settling on a bench half an hour later. The atmosphere in the park was paradoxical in the sense that one hand it felt very calm, while on the other, it was a hub of activity. On the road behind me, horse drawn carts carried tourists. Vendors sold hot dogs, ice creams and park ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The New York Palace Hotel New York City
Great New York Weekend Hotel
Visited in November for a weekend package which included parking, breakfast and a bottle of wine. The location of the hotel is excellent (midtown), near everything and the subway. The rooms are nice and the service was great. The public areas of the hotel are also very nice.
The hotel makes for a nice weekend get away. The only downside was the breakfast which was rather ordinary. With the weekend special you could order any breakfast item on the menu. The "American Breakfast", which is two small eggs, overcooked cold bacon, a few potatos and coffee (bitter) was $27.00!!! It was worth $3.99 (if that).
We loved The Palace
The service from the moment we drove up to the crowded front door was attentive and friendly. "George" at the front door took care of the car and baggage. Everything else for the next 24 hours made us feel wonderful. Room was spacious and clean. We will be back.
Palace is my New York favorite
I travel to New York frequently, and always request a room on a high floor, facing St. Patrick's Cathedral. The room, service and small but wonderful spa are what keep bringing me back! I have enjoyed dinner at the lovely and very expensive Le Cirque 2000 only once, but it was a great experience. I love the quiet, elegant ambience of the Palace, and you can't beat the location!
Just spent the weekend at the New York Palace. Can not say anything negative. This was the nicest hotel I have stayed in. Excellent service, clean beyond clean, walking distance to Grand Central and all attractions such as Radio City. The staff was so friendly it felt like I had been there before. Would go back in a minute.
New York Palace Worth Every Penny!
I expected the New York Palace to be a nice hotel; however, I was wonderfully surprised at just how nice and beautiful it was! Every hotel employee was courteous and helpful...the rooms large and beautifully decorated. The view from our room on the 24th floor was excellent. It overlooked St. Patrick's Cathedral. Beautiful! The hotel's quiet location can't be beat. One block from Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall. Across the street from Saks Fifth Avenue and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Steps from restaurants and shopping. Walking distance to Times Square and Broadway shows. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants an above average place to stay in NYC!
My wife and I won an overnight at the NY Palace and dinner at LeCirque (in the hotel lobby) and it was absolute nirvana. The staff was incredibly friendly, the room was beautiful -- it was spectacular! We'd go again in a minute.
spent New Year in this Hotel. Over-rated, beds uncomfortable, staff unfriendly and unhelpful. Not worth the money!!
Great place to stay. Large rooms. Great location. Expensive.
For a many starred hotel, save your money. Pretenious staff..., cleaning details omitted in the rooms.
NY Palace is a bungalow
Needing a good night's sleep? Then AVOID the New York Palace. The beds are horrible and very small (how do you find a double bed that small?) Rooms are nice size but the tempature is a constant battle.
The room service staff and the conceirge are wonderful. Front desk are ok but not exceptional. Not what you would expect from a $535/night hotel.
