Historical Traveller Reviews of Morgans Hotel New York City
Great small hotelfrom fredvanbael
When we arrived, though, the entrance was almost invisible due to scaffolds (I don't know if that's the correct word, as I had to look it up) covering the facade. And since there was no doorman at the door at that time, the taxi driver even came in with us, just to check we were in the right place.
So the entrance was a bit dissapointing, but I can garantee that all the rest was just perfect.
Check-in went swift, and all the people we met at the front desk were very friendly and pollite.
Our room was more spacious than I hoped for, and, very important, spotless! Very, very clean. Tiny bathroom, but with over-sized shower that works excellent!
Complimentary breakfast was more than sufficient, I wouldn't change a thing!
And, of course, best of all: LOCATION! In walking distance of about everything.
All in all, Morgans was more than I expected and even hoped for, and I would certainly recommend it. Especially if you can get a good rate.
And I would, once again, thank the entire staff for making our stay so enjoyable: you are really very professional and efficient!
Hope to stay there again very soon.
t paying.from Meninon
The corridors and lobby decor is gloomy, in dark greys and silvers and could do with brightening up.
Overall I enjoyed my stay, however, it is not somehwere I would stay if I was picking up the tab, the room costs, phone and drinks prices were all extortionate and they even charged for internet access...with those room prices thats the least you would expect to be inculded!
Great Location, Nice Remodelled Roomfrom LAGinagirl
This is an older (ie 1920's) hotel on the edge of Murray Hill in mid-Manhattan. We love the location.
Because we were there right after the reopening, there were still some minor snafu's (only one elevator running, staff not clear on how things, etc.), but nothing major.
Everything in the room is new and was very comfortable. We had a loft suite - nice and roomy, especially compared to what NYC rooms usually are. We did peek into a regular room and they are TINY - closet sized.
Our room had both a full (2 person) bathtub and separate large (again 2 person) shower.
Breakfast is only serviced till 10a, which is a bummer if you miss it. It would be nice if that was extended to 11a for us WestCoasters still getting used to the time change.
This is a trendy, hip hotel. We had a few minor celebs there at the same time as us and a popular cable TV show was using it as home base to do some planning.
I'd definitely stay here again IF prices were reduced .. the rack rate for our room was $879 - a ridiculous price, even in NYC.
Quite good but is it worth the money?from fluffybunny_84
The room was very relaxed with different mood lighting options and the bathroom was very clean and all was well.... however the next morning i went to use the dressing gown hanging in the wardrobe and it had some one elses hair in the back neck of it! urrrrrrrrgggghhhhh... i asked for reception to remove it and have a clean one ASAP. I wsa given another but no one removed the offending dirty one!!! so not the best service!
Reception were friendly, but one tip is to ask to be as far away from the lift as possible as myself and a work college who was 3 floors below me could hear the lift bell all night long!
All in all it's a good base pad, but we did struggle finding good places to eat which were near by the hotel, Asia De Cuba joined to the hotel was very good but the other local places were not!
Worth a stay!
disappointing return visitfrom divenuts
the beds are very nice but thats about all i can think of that i liked.
its a shame that asia de cuba the restaurant , didn't get a make over, the food is mediocre at best and during the cold hard light of breakfast it's dirty, beat up and tired looking.
over all , a disappointing stay at a hotel that used to be reasonably priced, funky and fun, but is now expensive and dull.
Great Value, booked via Priceline.com!from misterhoney
It was a little bit hard to find because there was no signs or address number in front of the building but a staff member noticed from the inside that we seemed lost when we passed by with our luggages and ran outside in the rain to catch us and asked if we were looking for the hotel!!! That's what I call service! It was like during all our stay. The staff people are incredibly courteous and eager to help. They act amicable but not too much and they are very professional.
The room was small (I've been told it's like that in all NY unless you pay a lot more) but it was very beautiful and trendy. I like very much the decor, I'm not the old kind of austere-classic-dark style type of person. The room and hotel was spick and span,
The location was also good and lot's of stuff was at a walkable distance.
I booked thru priceline.com and paid $200+taxes per nigh which makes it an unbelievable deal to me.
Not Four Starfrom NicsMamaBear
Reasonable, safe option...not sure about value for moneyfrom Funky_travel_junky
We stayed the week after the newly refurbished hotel reopened and were happy enough with our stay. Check-in was quick and staff were efficient, friendly and courteous.
Room plus points:
Quiet - a real plus compared to previous NYC trips
Clean & minimally stylish...as you'd expect a week after re-opening, expect 'new carpet' smell
Beds - Super comfortable with good quality duvets, mattresses and white bedlinen
Good sized walk in, well pressurised showers with 'rain'/Japanese style shower options
However, the room was small (which was fine, we expect that in NY) and fixtures appear to be more style over substance than a careful consideration of traveller's needs and I was really pleased not to have been travelling for work. There was no desk just a designer-y, but pretty useless dressing table and a window seat.
There was a tiny closet and as we were there to shop, we were struggling to find places to put all our stuff after day 2. In terms of both fixtures & finish, the room felt like a somone's bedroom rather than a deluxe hotel room - they didn't quite pull it off in comparison to UK boutique chains such as Hotel du Vin, Malmaison or Dakota. Whilst clean, bathrooms were equally tiny and claustrophobic - I appreciate that they are probably still snagging the refit but the tiling needed re-looked at in our room.
The continental breakfast in Asia de Cuba restaurant was reasonable for setting yourself up for a day ahead - nothing fancy just staples such as croissants, pastries, cereals, fruit, bagels, fruit juices, teas/coffees but there was plenty of it.
I'm not sure if we'd stay again but this is probably more an issue of value for money rather than the quality of the hotel itself - this is a perfectly decent place to stay. I appreciate that NY's an expensive city (but so are London and Tokyo and we've stayed in some fabulous hotels there at the same price point recently) but depsite the buzz of fashion week about town, Morgan's just didn't offer any real added value for us.
Very pleasedfrom Londoner56
I was truly dissapointed to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Please accept my apologies.
While initially there may have been some glitches, we are now past the opening, and the hotel is in great form.
I do wish you had contacted me directly so that I could have intervened during your stay. Regardless, I will be contacting you to see if we can make it up to you.
We do hope you return; Morgans is getting very nice reviews from our guests and they seem to be truly enjoying the new look.

Morrocan restuarant right around the corner from the morgans is barbes - 21st east 36th at madison - small, cozy and nice.
Check out Buddakan on 9th (btwn 15 & 16th). Go around 7pm on Friday night & just hang out @ a table in the bar area. The staff will just come up & ask if your waiting for a dinner table.
