Warwick New York Hotel
Travel Blogs from New York City
Our bus took the group from the airport directly to to Harlem. We went to Sylvia's Restaurant and ate fried chicken, collard greens, corn bread, ribs, and other southern delecacies. It was a nice welcome to NYC! Our guide, Sarah, had arranged for an accapella group to sing for us. Afterwards, we took a tour of Harlem and visited an incredible …

The excitement was building as the realisation had hit that New York was only a few hours away. Despite all that we had seen during our 2010 adventure there was no doubt that this was the place we both wanted to be. A shuttle bus took us to O'Hare International Airport Chicago and now being experts on …
After a good nights sleep off to our complimentary (that's for free) breakfast at 8.30am (for us 2 hours later than our normal breakfast time). Nice breakfast was available scrabbled eggs, bagels, ham, cereal so we made the most of it of course.
We left the hotel around 11 to go on the Circle Line Boat for a cruise around Manhattan. This cruise was strongly recommended by Bonnie and Clyde (Alias M & K) and how right ...
Well, it's official. Mom & I are back stateside and our little adventure is over :( We had a ball, but it's going to be good to get home again. Mom wanted me to mention a few things that we did NOT do on our trip as a few people have asked us about them: 1.) We did not see a puffin :( Mom thought she might have seen one, but then later looked at one online and said it didn't match the bird she saw, ...

Manhattan turned out to be a little bit bigger than we had imagined, so Day 1 required a bit more walking than we expected. Trying to cover the width of Downtown in heavy rain is not much fun, ...

Great location! The rooms are large for NYC and comfortable. The only problem is the SLOW elevators. We waited 15 minutes one time.

Great Location, Great Room
Stayed three nights at the Warwick on business recently. The front desk staff was helpful and attentive. My room, which overlooked 54th Street, was larger than I expected (approx. 500 sq. feet) and nicely and traditionally furnished with nice lamps and marble top tables. Bathroom was clean, luxurious, and had good water pressure. Definitely a good value for what I paid. Best of all was that it was within walking distance of Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park South, but without as much hubbub. For those who complain of noise, c'mon - it's New York, the capital of the world! I would stay here again.
Warwick-center of operations
My 13 year old daughter, my 76 year old aunt and i shared a good sized double at the Warwick in mid-October while on a bus tour to NYC. We walked everywhere(Central park, Natural History Museum, Theatre district, Times Square, St. Patrick's and 5th Ave. shopping, Bloomingdales, Rockefeller Center, etc.). The location was great, we never felt uncomfortable out and about. The hotel was clean, the food good (we ate in the restaurant twice), and the room fairly roomy. We needed some extras- pillows, roll-away and toothbrush- which were delivered in a very prompt manner. Would definately go again.
Whilst the location was ideal, the room was very dark as it had very littel natural light . Lighting was required to find your way to the bed - during the day! Service and general welcome were poor.
My wife and I spent 3 nights the first week of October. Hotel was a great "base of operations"...close to Central Park, Times Square, Theater District, St. Patrick's, and 5th Avenue. Service was above average. Room was large, no problem with street noise. We would probably stay there again without second thoughts.
Good outweighs the bad
A friend and I stayed at The Warwick for 6 nights recently . Would stay there again even tho street noise was really bad, Room next to us played their TV really loud at 4:00 A.M. and the water was cut off to repair a leak while I was soaped up in the shower! That shows good things must have out-weighed the bad !!
The Warwick Hotel is centrally located in Manhatten. We had no trouble getting to subways, Central Park is only two blocks away, St. Patricks Cathedral was a five minute walk and nearby reasturants definitely had the NYC flavor. The rooms are unexpected size and quite clean for NYC and the staff was friendly. We would return to this hotel for future vacations.
My wife and I stayed at the Warwick for five nights in May, 2002 and we would highly recommend this hotel for many reasons. They immediately impressed us when we checked-in. Upon learning that we were in New York to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary the hotel staff upgraded our room to a junior suite overlooking the Avenue of the Americas. The room was large and clean with the classic atmosphere of a 1927 hotel. We also found the hotel staff to be courteous and helpful. For us, the hotel location in Midtown Manahattan was perfect. Many of the sights that we wanted to experience were within relatively easy walking distance (eg: Times Square, Broadway Plays, Empire State Building). For the sights that were further afield (Financial District, Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, SOHO, Little Italy), the subway system gets you there very fast but we do recommend obtaining a good subway line map. Overall, the Warwick Hotel was a great place to stay and we'll go back there the next time we're in New York.
We planned a romantic valentine's day weekend in NYC. The Warwick was ideal (from the pictures). The hotel looked classic, historic, and beautiful. When we got there we were informed of the 3pm check in time, since we had 5:30pm pre-theater dinner reservations we asked if we could have a room early to get ready, they said "no way." I told them I had called the day before and been told that an early check-in would be no problem. They said they could not accommodate us. They have no hotel shop to buy necessities in, so if you forget something be prepared to take a taxi to the drugstore. The lobby is nothing special, the furniture is worn, the bar is dirty, service is unheard of here. The elevator takes a minimum of 10 minutes when you need to go out. It took them 30 minutes to bring our car around when we checked out and that was amidst great confusion over whether or not the doorman should take our valet ticket or the front desk should take the ticket. Normally this would not be a problem at most hotels, except here it took them 20 minutes to straighten this out and 20 minutes to get the car. They didn't seem to care that we were waiting for an extended period of time. Do not pay full price for the rooms - if they have a deal for $150 a night, it is worth it, the rooms are decent and clean. But be prepared for the staff not to care about you, and be prepared to wait around for things - possible for long periods of time.
We stayed at the Warwick on a tour the first weekend in December. The hotel was great. The view of the brick wall was minor compared to the service and the location. Asked for a coffee pot and received it immediately. We enjoyed our stay. Decorating was great especially the marble in the bathroom! Again the location was great for us.
We stayed here for 6 days last spring. The room was attractive but small with a lovely view of a brick wall! That aside, the price was right and the feel of the hotel and staff was very european. The location was quite good, the staff polite.
