There is some construction going on outside but did not affect our stay. The lobby is pretty small but had no problem checking in The rooms themselves were quite large for New York hotel rooms They were very comfortable My kids loved the TV inside the bathroom mirror Your two blocks from Central Park and the shops on fifth Fairly safe neighborhood There is a small grocery store two blocks away also I would recommend staying here if you were in that area
Excellent staff, however the room I was in was a bit dated and need of maintenance. My better half reported that her massage in the spa was "absolutely incredible". I did stay in one of their smaller rooms.
Would I repeat? Probably not, but overall I did enjoy my stay.
I will definitely be staying here again next time I'm in NYC. Perfect location, right next to new subway which makes it very convenient. Excellent staff- shoutout to John at the desk who was very helpful. Everything we asked for was delivered. Very happy with the service. Only critique is that the rooms need a few renovations. Other than that we felt at home and I'd highly recommend this hotel/apartment.
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.
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.
