My husband underwent surgery which is why we were in NYC. This hotel was the perfect choice, location, price etc. We required two rooms. Familyembers accompanied us. The staff were fantastic. The boutique style hotel was on the mark. My husband is still talking about his halibut dinner at the Prime. Thanks to all for this life changing experience. My husband beat cancer!
We have stayed at numerous hotels over the years in New York and for a variety of reasons, including size and quality of the room, location and value for your money at New York price prefer to stay here. Yes it is pricey but you get what you pay for. High end bedding, turndown service, quiet spacious room with his and her closets. Like Ava Gabbor says in Green Acres, give me Park Avenue.
A 20-30 minute cab drive from Laguardia and a short walk to subway in a neighbourhood, starbucks coffee in the lobby made this a perfect hotel for our stay in New York. Away from the busyness of the action however quiet after long days of touring the city. Great bagels and pizza and smoothies in the neighbourhood and all reasonably priced. Friendly staff.
Spotless rooms in a high rise right outisde the 2nd avenue subway. NY Times in the morning. Nicely appointed kitchen. Great space around bed with big closet and great selection of tv channels. It's about the cost of an Airbnb room in the same neighborhood, but rather than struggling to find a spot to put down your suitcase and wondering if you can use the milk in the fridge for your morning coffee, you have your own place and space! Housekeeping left the room beautiful after each day too.
My sister and I stayed here six days and entertained her 10 year old grandson who was on school break. We enjoyed exploring the area, finding affordable and delicious restaurant food a few blocks away(3 Guys Restaurant) and slept well in our hotel room. The Staff was responsive to our 10 year old's need for a pencil to do his homework, and several other requests. The second floor Mezzanine is spacious and made our card games easy to enjoy. Also enjoyed the Penthouse view on the roof to happily take advantage of the warmer than normal February weather. We will return to Hotel Wales.
We spent 5 nights with a family of 5, to show the kids NYC. It was a bit windy and chilly, but it didn't spoil the vacation because we were able to go back to our 'apartment' to rest and warm up before going out again.
Of all the superlatives used to describe the Upper East Side, one word is apt: richest. Some of the city’s wealthiest residents live in the high rises that line Fifth Avenue. Be prepared to spend an entire day at the Museum of Metropolitan Art. Both a physical and art-world behemoth, the Met is home to several masterworks, from an intact ancient Nubian temple to post-modern color studies.
