Editorial review:

This absolutely elegant boutique hotel in Union Square has a gorgeous and impressive lobby, great dining, and lively nightlife at the amazing bar Redwood Room. It can be too noisy for those who aren't interested in partying all night, though. Critics felt that the rooms were too small, as well.

Verified Reviews:

  • Staff is very friendly - Internet in room is $10.00 per day - There is a parking lot 30 yards away
  • Walls are paper thin - Breakfast quality was good - Free well equiped gym - Bar is very crowded
  • Lobby and bar are cool - Bathroom was super tiny - Decor was beautiful, silks and soft colors
  • Room was clean and very posh - Beds have silky sheets - Front desk service was not very friendly
  • Rooms were decent - Hotel is great for union square - Staff were very helpful - Bed was nice and comfy

    All in all pretty good, the lobby looked good, the bar was good fun and it was a great location

    Good: Rooms are a good size. Ceilings are tall. Water pressure and temperature excellent. Decor good.

    Bad: Smoking leaked in from other rooms or floors. Lobby lounge area too dark. Bar closed during the day!

  • Group of friends

    Good location, bar was nice.

    Bathroom was very small, old and not so clean. Noisy from outside hall way.

  • Couple

    location

    Did not honor my request to be on higher floor. Was given a room on the 3rd floor and could hear the noise from the street.

  • Couple

  • Couple
    8.2

    Trendy Hotel with a great lounge and night life. Good for vacation (not for business maybe)

    Needs a good Spa and Restaurant

  • Single

    The location

    2 glasses of champagne was $40 what a rip off!

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The location of the hotel was amazing. YOu were walking distance to great shopping and several of the sites. In addition, the entire staff was extremely helpful with directions and advise on places to see. We loved it!

  • Single
    7.4

    room was small, and not enough electrical outlets

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Loved the eclectic furniture. Beds super comfy and beautiful crisp bed linen. Good bar. Nice doormen and appreciated the use of the hotel cars.

    Only the dull lighting in the public areas.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    the atmosphere/style of hotel; staff (particularly doormen); location; price was reasonable

    charged 15 a day for internet - this is unusual (build into price if you have to); being charged for local calls

  • Couple
    6.2

    We over paid for a room that offered a city view when in reality it was a view of a concrete wall. Also for a hotel that is considered luxurious, the room was cheaply done and very understated. I have stayed at two other Morgans Group Hotels before and had an amazing experience. This hotel under exceeded its reputation, especially with our room stay.
