... and I also new most of the songs to sing along too! We also managed to secure the tickets for half price ( $70) by waiting in line for about 30 min at the ticket office in Times Square on the evening of the show - definitely recommend doing this if you want to catch a show in NY. Just an important food pointer, don't buy a hotdog from vendor opposite the ticket box in Times Square - cost us 5 dollars and gave Rose an upset tummy and yet we'd paid 1 dollar the day before for ...

Great Room Service from the best breakfast restaurant in the city-Sarahbeth's
Bring your PC - there is one in the lounge but too many users!
Cozy and Charming
The Wales is a thoughtful small hotel. Actually, any hotel that has Mozart piped through the halls is a gem, in my view! Our room, while quite small, was comfortable, nicely furnished, and quiet. I appreciated having ample copies of The New York Times each morning. Breakfast was sufficient...the hotel location for museum going is excellent.
Hotel personnel were friendly and helpful and went to some lengths to try and advise us on use of the NY subway system. Definitely a place to return to.
We were plesently surprised by the Wales Hotel! The rooms are as small as any NYC hotel, but they are charming! Very clean and extremely comfortable beds with great bedding, towels...etc. The staff was extremely nice and very professional. Location is good for museums and activities on the Upper East Side. If you are there on a weekend, take advantage of Sarabeth's for brunch and avoid the wait by calling ahead and telling them you are a hotel guest. While we really enjoyed our stay, I don't think it is worth some of the rates I have seen advertised......the staff definitely negotiates.
This is a nicely refurbished hotel, maintaining much of its early 20th century charm, clean, some really nice touches in the rooms, and perfect if you're after a cosy place to stay, away from the bustle of Midtown.
Horrible service - mediocre rooms - bumped guest
This hotel over-booked and then had the audacity to invite us to stay at an objectively worse property a 30 minute cab ride away. After a year of fruitlessly but graciously trying to get reimbursement (yes, they did NOT reverse our prepayment) or at least a written apology and a complimentary future stay, I have resolved to give up on the exorbitantly high price I paid and instead save as many people as possible a similar headache. In an attempt to resolve this issue, the hotel has gone through several managers but--despite some nice rhetoric--noone has DONE anything helpful. The service here is absolutely horrid and the rooms are dingy and small. Save yourself and look elsewhere.
Marvelous holiday visit
Marvelous holiday visit at Wales first weekend December. Better rate ( $259 vs. $300) arranged by our travel agent. Very attractive small room, but good sized closet and storage . Huge old bathtub/ hand shower, well maintained plumbing, nice ammenities. Breakfast was $12 each (extra) in lovely sitting room with a harpist, but worth every penny for the serenity it provided. Great shopping, museuming , eating area - ten minute walk to subway. Top notch staff who were Minnesota nice!
Loved the Wales!
My family and I had a wonderful time in this charming boutique hotel with its newly renovated lobby and splendid European breakfast buffet.
The service was outstanding & the staff was personable and friendly!
Carnegie Hill is such a pleasant location to stay with children...we were so close to several museaums, unique shops & Central Park. We loved our spacious corner suite facing Madison Ave. We will certainly return the next time we return to Manhattan!
I booked this hotel online, and I got every pennies worth. It is a fabulous hotel, with very cozy rooms, and the staff was very friendly. I thought this was a really nice New York City experience. When I went back to the hotel after a long day of shopping, I felt like I was home and very comfortable. Overall, I would recommend this place to people, because it is worth the price.
The service was great; so courteous, kind, and very quick to deliver any of my request. For instance, I asked for extra towels in the morning and literally two minutes later the maid was knocking on my door and handing me towels. I don't even get that kind of service at the Plaza. I will definitely stay there again.
