Excellent Hotel

Having recently returned from a 9 day stay at this hotel I have no complaints what so ever.
This is a clean hotel well sized rooms and well located and friendly staff.
We checked in a little early and as a party of four in two rooms found one was not quite ready and asked to wait 20 - 30 minutes. We were to have rooms next to each other but when we went to get the keys to the second room they had given it to some one else, so full of apologies we were given a larger room very nice (but the room we had booked would have been plenty big enough size wise).
As for the toiletries some one complained about in an earlier review, it says imported, and that's what you get, or party in the smaller room had toiletries from Taylors of London we had those and some Bulgari as well. We didn't have a hairdryer in the first room so they borrowed ours, buy I'm sure if we need two, a phone call to housekeeping would have got them one. If you require an iron & ironing board again ask housekeeping.
The breakfast was as described pastries and coffee, which there were plenty and lasted the whole time, and you can take coffee back to the rooms just ask for coffee to take away they don't mind.
Would recommend this Hotel gladly. Having said that two years ago stayed at the Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers literally just around the corner a little more expensive but if I went back I think I'd prefer to stay there, similar size and quality of rooms, but a more modern busier hotel with plenty of areas for coffee, meals & drinks. Pay a little more for a club room and you get free breakfast (plenty of choice) and horderves.
If you don't like busy then go to The Michelangelo.
One last thing forget the Empire State Building go to ‘Top of The Rock', less busy, better views from three floors, two levels with large Perspex screens and the top level only has a small fence, you get to see Central Park & the Empire State Building. Also check out the Campbell Apartments for (pricey) Cocktails, very nice.

Absolutely the best hotel we have ever stayed at. The location is perfect. This is a beautifully decorated and very clean facility, with many little touches that make it extra special.

Michelangelo has a small hotel feel in that as a regular visitor the staff remember you and greet you warmly. I ask for an interior room and do not hear any road traffic from busy 7th Avenue. It has a convenient complimentary pastry and coffee service in the Lobby for those that need a quick start in the morning. Good rooms,friendly service make me come back.

The Michaelangelo is a throwback to many of the European Hotels that we have stayed at. Not only is it situated in the heart of the theatre district, but walking distance (with heels) to some of the Cities' finest restaurants and late night clubs. The prices are moderate and the service is superior.

Historical Traveller Reviews of The Michelangelo Hotel

Hotel Squisito!

from ThatWouldBeMeSc_Usa
Wonderful spacious rooms, clean, well stocked, courteous and helpful staff, beautiful hotel. Can be pricey, but what hotel in NYC isn't?
This is definitely worth a stay. Not a single problem with this visit when we stayed at Michelangelo.

Nice; But 5 stars? Come on!

from tombstonemarshal
My wife and I stayed at the Michelangelo earlier this month. We were convinced to stay there by our friends' recommendation, and by the sterling reviews it received from Tripadviser guests. Maybe the expectations created were too high, but we were somewhat disappointed.
The room was decent sized, but hardly palatial. We did like the Bose stereo radio as billed. The bedding was mundane and the carpets were stained in many places. The bathroom was marble, as promised, but otherwise small. The room would have been blissfully and incredibly quiet at night but for the outrageously noisy air conditioning unit which kept us up much of the night as it constantly went on and off.
And beware the coffee police! In the morning, I committed the heinous crime of attempting to take a cup of coffee from the free continental breakfast (hope you're not hungry) area to my room. After the staffer finally looked up at me (after standing in front of him for 2 full minutes) and gruffly said that there were no to-go cups, I tried to take up a china cup. Before I had gone 3 steps, I was promptly advised by another staffer that no coffee could leave the eating area. (The manger later explained (unsatisfactorily) that the hotel had previously been sued a la the famous McDonald's case, hence the unique anti-coffee rule.) I later snuck up a cup from a carryout nearby. Next time, I'm spending my $250 at the Marriott Marquis. So should you.

Best Hotel Experience in five years in NYC

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Michelangelo while in NYC for the Sinatra Tribute on the 17th of October, 2003. It is by far the best hotel experience we have had in all of our visits to NYC. The staff was exceptionally helpful, immaculate rooms, turn down service, wonderful Italian breakfast with real Cappuccino, just like we enjoyed in Italy. Very convenient location, around the corner from Radio City Music Hall. We will definitely be a frequent guest, and will send all of our friends and family there. They even offer a free shoe shine service, leave your shoes in a bag when you turn in, when you awake in the morning they will be outside your door. Since this is a hotel that is based in Italy, they even offer free Italian newspapers, as well as free limousine service to Wall Street every day. I can't say enough, it was great!!

Great Boutique Hotel

from bmgary
A friend requested that I recommend a boutique hotel in NY because they didn't like large hotels with "convention" atmosphere. I wanted to recommend something nice because I know what NY hotel rooms can cost and what you get for the outragious rates . Well, I selected the Michelangelo and when I visited my friend I was most pleasantly surprised. Not only was the lobby beautiful, but the rooms were also spacious and beautifully decorated. The bathroom even had a color TV. This hotel is a true gem. We both agreed that this hotel was a keeper.

WARNING-The WORST hotel experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
There are much better hotels. After traveling down from Boston we got into NYC at 4(room was to be available at 3), exhausted, my fiance and I arrived at the hotel, awaiting a quick nap, instead, we were treated horribly; had to wait for hours(offered us a drink from the bar but neither of us drink)for our reserved room(I noticed three other couples waiting too!), but then never got it!--We were put on a smoking floor and I have bad allergies--and our room wasn't discounted at all for this. They explained it as the people extended their stay--this means that our reserved room is taken and we'd have to wait around for the next available room whenever that would be! This was supposed to be a romantic valentines day weekend and they made it nearly unbearable for us.

Great hotel, Great bargain!

from auburn8
My wife and I stayed at the Michelangelo the last weekend of September, 2003. We were in New York celebrating her birthday. James, the concierge, arranged for a beautiful flower arrangement to be in the room with a nice Happy Birthday note. The room was large, with an impressive bathroom. The deep tub was marvelous! The room was serviced twice daily and the turndown service was nice. The Bose radio playing classical music was a great touch! The Lobby Bar is a quiet place to meet friends and is where the complimentary continental breakfast is served. The Michelangelo is located near Broadway, the Rockefeller Center and a lot of great shopping. Subway stops are also nearby. I think the Michelangelo is a wonderful hotel and is a bargain compared to surrounding hotels. I highly recommend it!

Michelangelo is wonderful!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at Michelangelo for 5 nights over Labor Day, 2003. Beautiful, quiet (for NYC), upgraded studio suite on 5th floor. Location is ideal: not too close to the noisy, crowded Times Square area and close enough to walk to to all major mid-town venues and Central Park. Service is prompt and courteous. Room was tidied twice a day. Concierge staff were beyond helpful in giving directions and making reservations. We recommend the Michelangelo without a doubt. Stay here and you will be impressed.

Fabulous choice!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I chose New York for our final destination on our honeymoon. We spent months looking for the perfect hotel. When we continuously saw rave reviews for this hotel at first we were skeptical. Well, the experience definately proved us wrong. It was the most wonderful end to a great trip. They upgraded us to a 1 bedroom suite due to our honeymoon. The suite was like an apartment without a kitchen. It was loaded with marble and a library worth of books. The staff is very helpful with reservations and it seems that they find geat pleasure in making your stay the best you could imagine. I really could not say anything bad at all about the hotel. The location is great and taxis were plentiful. We will definately make the Michelangelo our New York home away from home.

wonderful, small, sophisticated, safe and welcoming

from A TripAdvisor Member
I loved this hotel. It was perfect - not impersonal in any way. As a lone traveller, it was an oasis in the large city. Sit down and visit with Bernie, he is a gem.

Fantastic

from A TripAdvisor Member
Our company used the Michelangelo Hotel for a business meeting with 16 participants. The hotel was fantastic, from the absolutely wonderful rooms to the service, and the great "European feel". The staff was helpful, friendly and the meeting staff was available non-stop. They do not have a business office per se, however, they were willing to make copies for us in their offices, and Kinko's is a couple of blocks away.
Definitely a great experience.

Top Local Tips for New York City

How to get there, how to get around, and what to expect If you can avoid a personal vehicle in NYC, do so - Parking is expensive and hard to find, and driving in NYC takes a certain skillset that few posess. The fastest way to get around the city is by subway, bus and taxi. The subways aren't always pretty, but are generally safe and reliable. Remember when staying in NYC that european standards apply to hotel room sizes (expect smaller-than-average rooms) and that a rate of $250 a night in a nice hotel is a bargain in NYC. If you're paying less than that, it might be a dump. Also, NYC uses steam heat - some older hotels might have noisier radiators - and unless you're 10 stories up, you might hear road noise. If you are a light sleeper, no matter where you stay in the city, pack a couple of pairs of foam earplugs. NYC can be noisy 24/7.

The Year of Magical Thinking Vanessa Redgrave is positively astonishing in this performance - see it if you can!

Cafe Duke The Cafe Duke is just a couple of doors up from the hotel - It is a great place to have a good buffet, or sandwhiches or to shop for some snacks to bring back to the room
