I’m not the one to write a review, but talent recognizes talent. Daniel the service you provide is immaculate. I work for Marriott and I feel like you can provide better service then I do. I need to step it up a notch. Thanks for actually making my wife and I feel like a guest and not a room number. Keep it up, We’ll be back. 1110->1002

The Kimpton Muse Hotel is located in the heart of Manhatten right beside Times Square.  We arrived and were greeted by Daniel, who went above and beyond to ensure our stay was going to be memorable. He noticed we had pets and with Kimpton Hotels.... if pets can fit through the door, they are welcome at no additional charge.  This makes us choose Kimpton when traveling.  Daniel was nice enough to tell us more about the area and choose a room that would suit our needs.  It is the kind of welcome that makes you feel like you are family.  When we arrived in our room, we were very pleased.  They are larger than many New York City hotels, have excellent views, equipped with plush beds and luxurious bathrooms.  There are even small fridges in the rooms which are becoming obsolete in many hotels, so this is a huge plus.  Cleanliness and safety are a priority.  We saw staff cleaning the hotel throughout the whole stay.  Overall, the hotel is excellent and I have already told my friends to choose this hotel, especially with pets! I can't wait for my next stay. If I would do something differently, I would have booked a room with a balcony.  I balcony rooms offer something different and extraordinary!  Read less

Hotel- Kimpton Muse (NYC) Date- 23july – 25july 2020 (2 nights) Overall: Excellent. A stylish boutique hotel with an amazing staff. Accommodations- Excellent. I was assigned an ‘Executive King Suite’ on the top floor, which was very nice. The room was spacious, clean, & quiet, something not always so easily found when staying so close to Times Square. Decorative pillows, the minibar, the notepad & pencil, and any other high touch items were removed due to the pandemic. IHG Rewards Club Recognition- Excellent. Upon check in I was thanked for my loyalty and given amenity points. My room was upgraded. Staff- Excellent. The staff makes the hotel. I come to this hotel because of the attention, care, and genuine enthusiasm of the staff members. Year after year, when I do, I know that staff members like Daniel & Angel will do their best to take care of me, my spouse, and even my pet. I was impressed when doorman Wilson was even able to identify my cat’s uncommon species. I can’t say enough good things about them. Thank you, front desk! Housekeeping- Very good. At first glance, the room seemed immaculate. However, old candy wrappers left under the sofa did end up in my pet’s mouth, which could have easily led to an emergency. The carpet was clean otherwise, and the bathroom was sparkling clean, better than most hotels I’ve stayed at in the area. Although housekeeping during the stay is discontinued during the pandemic, the hotel checked with me my second day to ensure I had all the supplies I might need. Towels and washcloths, soaps & shampoos, etc. were all provided in adequate supply for the length of my stay. Pool/Gym- Not evaluated. Breakfast/Meal Options- ALL food and beverage service is suspended. Since congregating in the lobby is prohibited, the wine hour was suspended, but the hotel front desk did provide us with two small bottles of wine to consume in our room. Morning coffee service was unavailable; so, plan to leave the hotel to gather any food or beverage you may want. Laundry- Not evaluated. Computer/Printer/WiFi- Excellent. WiFi was strong throughout the hotel, and streaming was smooth. Property Appearance- Excellent. The scaffolding in the front is decorated, and the lobby is clean and attractive. The hallways and elevators were clean and appealing. Other- Valet Parking is suspended during the pandemic. Parking at a neighboring garage is suggested and the $35 daily fee is added to the bill, instead of having to pay the garage directly. Read less

Location? Great. Especially if you’re in town for legit, old school Manhattan Site Seeing or Broadway shows. Or, in my case, work in midtown. Rooms? Clean. Neat. Cool. Sleek. Quiet. So sure, checks all those boxes, too. But a guy named Daniel at the front desk was so friendly you’d think you knocked on his front door. And then the staff I met… Read more
Location? Great. Especially if you’re in town for legit, old school Manhattan Site Seeing or Broadway shows. Or, in my case, work in midtown. Rooms? Clean. Neat. Cool. Sleek. Quiet. So sure, checks all those boxes, too. But a guy named Daniel at the front desk was so friendly you’d think you knocked on his front door. And then the staff I met in the hall. And then waiting on the curb for my car to arrive the doorman asking what he could do to help. Seriously, that makes all the difference. I go to NY a lot and usually just stay wherever works. But when you treat me this nicely, I will go out of my way to stay there again. Read less

Room was very close to the website pictures, as was my mates. Great tiger print bathrobe! Yoga mat and umbrella in room. My friend and I had different level payment rooms but we couldn’t tell the difference. Had the 5pm welcome wines but seats were a bit limited so they could do with more lounges/seating but nice wine.

Room was very close to the website pictures, as was my mates. Great tiger print bathrobe! Yoga mat and umbrella in room. My friend and I had different level payment rooms but we couldn’t tell the difference. Had the 5pm welcome wines but seats were a bit limited so they could do with more lounges/seating but nice wine. Mixed bag with staff. Struck very helpful men duo on check in and later but one pretty stern female who we then tried to avoid. Didn’t use the breakfast and instead opted for a takeaway coffee/ tea from a deli a few doors toward TS. Well located to several subways and so close to TKTS! I found a bit noisy and had stayed at a nearby hotel the week before which seems quieter but was a higher floor there so maybe what transpires in a boutique spot. Seems dog friendly as every time I was in an elevator there was a dog and owner. Well priced Read less
