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.

... to have a shower. It had been 31 again today so we both desperately needed one. Suitably refreshed, we continued with the drinks fest. One negative - terrible food. Just plates of sandwiches or dry nibbles. We didn't care. There's be plenty of food on the flight.
How cool boarding down a separate airbridge right into the business cabin. It was a wonderful experience that we may never be lucky enough to do again. Super comfy seats, attentive crew, fantastic food.
