The hotel is located in the center of all main NY attractions. The staff members were friendly and helpful. The one weakness is the size of the hotel and its rooms - they are quite narrow. The beds, as well, are small.

Location, Location, Location! This property is a mere short block from Rockelfeller Center, and a half block from 5th Ave. St. Patrick's Cathedral (undergoing heavy renovations, btw), the American Girl Place, and even Broadway attractions are a few blocks away. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is a small fitness room and free coffee on the second floor. The...

Had a very nice stay here with mom and sister last year. We found a good deal/sale online and booked one night for our stay. The location is the best thing about the hotel with Rock center immediately across the street! It was SO convenient! The lobby is small but clean and nice and you basically check yourself in with...

We were there for two nights in January and found the hotel to be everything we needed for our stay. The location was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful, and the price was very reasonable for NYC. The rooms were on the small side, but the efficient use of space meant that they had everything we needed and were...

I stayed here when I went to NYC for a wedding. The location is excellent. It is directly across the street from Rockefeller Center, and it's on a side street so there's very little noise. I know some travelers talked about the small rooms, but I was okay with that. I don't come to NYC to stay in the room....

I am disappointed to report that The Jewel appears to have let its standards fall in the past year. The rooms are still more than adequate in size, but the standard of service has declined sharply. I also noticed that they are being stingy with the bath linens (1 washcloth? Really?) yet they don't observe the "eco options" described on...

Can't fault this hotel at all.

We visited the Jewel end of December 13 to beginning of January 2013. The room rate included the necessary fees was without breakfast around 450 US Dollar per night. The room was average in size. The furniture already a bit run down and not any longer up-to-date. The carpet has seen already better times. Nevertheless the location is great. The...

What can I say about The Jewel? The Jewel is certainly a great find. Modestly small, unwelcoming entrance and tucked away amongst the concrete jungle, this hotel is saved by virtue of its location. Hop out of the front entrance and you smash into Rockefeller Centre and the home to NBC. You absorb NY as soon as you leave the...

Arrived here Dec 19 from a tour in Europe after a 20+ hour flight, and what a great surprise. Great staff, compact but very clean and functional rooms with all amenities.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
