    I booked this "hotel" as part of a vacation package on Expedia.com . I booked the package late at night and i was tired so i did not look at the MAIN pictures, instead i just browsed through the living area.  

    My GF and I did not have a good trip to Miami at all; late flight, waited for an hour or longer to get a rental car, didn't get to the hotel until midnight.  

    Got to the area around midnight, drove around to find something to eat so we got to check out the neighborhood.  Shady! Felt like we were in the wrong side of town.  After we ate, drove back down the street to look for the hotel.  well what do you do you know... it's MOTEL NEW YORKER!!    NOT NEW YORKER BOUTIQUE HOTEL!!!  

    We had bad experiences with "motel" qualities and services so we did not want to take any chances with this one....

    MOTEL vs HOTEL?  big different ... you be the judge but we say this is false advertisement!!

    We stayed at the New Yorker for 4 nights (getting a 10% discount by booking directly on their website) in a corner room with two queen beds. The room was nicely decorated and big but it's a good thing it came with complimentary earplugs because the noise from busy Biscayne ave was constant. Not to mention from our neighbors... Our room, 105, had a communicating door with the room next door and we could hear every word of the regular conversations the other people were having, not to mention the noise above head (this is a converted motel so 2 levels, and apparently acrobats moved in on day 2). Two perks though: free parking and a free breakfast buffet (bagels, cereal, orange juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, apples, and bananas) in the morning. The neighborhood is not the best but there are some good restaurants right down the street, within walking distance: Balans (10% discount with your room key) and tastier Uvas. There is also the brand new Blue Collar and fantastic Michey.
    Two more perks I almost forgot about: free wifi, and a $10 per person van service to the airport (beats a cab!). The owners and staff (especially Charles at breakfast and Mimi) are super friendly.

    I had as much fun at this hotel as I did in the rest of Miami. Although designed with a cheap sheik ikea plastered layout, our room was still quite comfortable and well worth $60 a night. When compared to other hotels in Miami, this is a super deal. You can't expect to get the world here (and if you expect to at this price point, you're delusional) but do expect to feel apart from it when you're here. The breakfast open area is nicely laid owit and the pool is well tucked away from the street. Yet, the location worked well for driving to all the places we wanted to be at.

    The utilities were the only parts that were undesirable  The water randomly spews boiling hot out of nowhere during showers (ouch) and the bed squeaks extra loud during ANY sort of movement (this next part removed to avoid TMI). Blow drier and the AC on while my phone is charging? Fuggeddabouddit. Blew the fuse.

    So what makes this place stand out so much in my opinion? The staff. Simply put, they are here to please. Perhaps the friendliest staff I've seen yet. Mimi, who works morning til 4, is nothing but smiles and general happiness. When my girlfriend and I arrived, she ran to the door to open it for us and it's not even like my hands were tied full of luggage. She's just that nice.

    Next, there is a great night shift, also named Mimi, who controls the 4-12 shift. She's always ready to help and even helped me cancel my booking for the next day without penalty late into the night. She went the extra step of contacting the owner late at night to explain that we were cutting our trip in miami short to spend an extra day in key west. They took care of that and gave me my money back willingly and without incident. Wow.

    The only way you could have a horrible stay here is by overlooking the staff. Not one person rubbed either me or my girlfriend the wrong way here, and we're definitely coming back.

    BUYER BEWARE!!! Before you book your room do not go for the best price. Saving a buck isn't the best way with this greedy company. They refuse to allow you to cancel for ANY reason. So even if your your plans change you are out your money. Not the best business practices if you ask me but what do I know?

    So me and my BF booked one night because we were going on a week long cruise out of the port of Miami. We flew into the Fort Lauderdale airport and took a shuttle to the hotel. The driver told us that the hotel was in a sketchy area that we should not stay there and that he would be glad to take us to another hotel....okay scary. So we looked up the zip code stats on our smartphones and determined that it was not outrageously more dangerous then the rest of Miami. So we decided to stay.

    The hotel was cute and the lady at the front desk was super nice. She asked us about our visit and made sure to let us know that there were two other couples staying at the new yorker that were leaving for the port at noon the next day and that we could take a van with them for $10 each.

    The decor is cute and the room was very clean. No complaints on that. We did feel like the shower was not as nice of a facility as we would have liked it to be and that the room was lacking a safe, which is standard practice when it comes to hotels no? Every thing else was pretty neat and tidy except for some lazy patch work on the closet wall area.

    The thing is that this place is really far from all the cool Miami attractions, the price is fabulous but what you spend in taxi rides in and out of here make springing for a bit more expensive place closer to things worth doing a more viable option. We went to dinner and walked around in the south beach area that night and we spend a little over $45 for the round trip in taxis.

    In the morning we had the free continental breakfast and they had a cute spread for outside dinning. Again the staff was very friendly to everyone. The block that the hotel is on is right across the street from a park. The immediate area is not so bad but we walked some twenty blocks away from the hotel after breakfast to a grocery store, to pick up some stuff we wanted to have on the ship, and the farther we walked the dingier the area was. If you stay here don't wander too far from the hotel. Not too bad for only one night but I would reevaluate our stay if it were for more then that.

    A very cute place and very clean. It's old but the rooms have been redone and its very quiet. The bathroom was very clean as well as the pool. Parking, cable and internet were all free as well as complimentary breakfast every morning. The beds were super comfy and the room is extra dark at night and I have not slept that good in awhile. The staff was super friendly except for the housekeeping staff. They were flat out rude to their other co-workers and gave us attitude several times. My duaghter is super picky but loved this place.

    Not My Parents' Biscayne Boulevard...

    Even kids know when things don't seem right.  When I was a child, I knew that any mention of Biscayne Boulevard meant trouble.  As I got older I learned that this was the ill-fated part of town that locals sped through with locked doors and rolled up windows.  No one that I knew would ever willingly stroll the boulevard unless they were looking for the kind of fun that would undoubtedly land you in jail.  But my how things have changed!

    Last Saturday I had the pleasure of attending the revamping celebration at The New Yorker Hotel located at 6500 Biscayne Boulevard.  Not only was the area 'cleaned up' from its 80's stigma, but I wanted to kick myself for not checking out this up and coming area sooner.

    The owners of The New Yorker Hotel have done what few would ever even consider.  They took 50's iconic architecture and married it with the lush cultural and artistic scene that surrounds it.  The homage to art deco and swanky mid-century flair make this a must see-must stay at hotel.  The first of its kind on the boulevard, this motel gone boutique hotel offers all the amenities you want at rates that demand future visits.  Aside from comfortable rooms, impeccable grounds, and a newly designed courtyard, guests are sure to start their day on the right track as they enjoy their continental breakfast al fresco.  You would be hard pressed to find comparable service and comfort anywhere in the area.  What started off as a labor of love for the owners, translates into a wonderful experience for their guests.  

    In addition to the accommodations at The New Yorker Hotel, you'll find that proximity to midtown, casinos, South Beach, fine dining, and trendy spots are only about a 10 minute drive.  Inspired by Miami's Art District, this is the place to be if you're into art, fusion restaurants, shops, and countless bars.

    If you're like me and haven't been in the area in a while, don't walk--run.  The biggest favor you can do for out of town friends and family is recommend The New Yorker Hotel on Biscayne Boulevard.  This is one booking you can make without doubts or hesitation.  The New Yorker and its surroundings are Miami at its best.  Once you arrive, you'll thank yourself and soon find that one trip to Miami may not be enough and The New Yorker Hotel will be the only place to stay for your return visit.

    Booked this hotel off booking.com and got a great price.  The hotel itself is nice.  Simple but modern in design.....

    Pro's:  Great wifi signal.  Super friendly staff.  Clean (which is a HUGE deal in my eyes when it comes to staying at hotels) Comfortable beds with feather down pillows and comforter.  

    Con's:  The area is for sure seedy....but it seems every area in Miami has a "seedy" spot a stones throw away.  ITS LOUD!!!!  Street noise it loud and I am pretty sure the people in the room above us wore cynderblocks for shoes!!!  The website pictures of this hotel make it look much bigger than it actually is.  The bathroom is ity bitty....I couldnt wrap my hair in the bath towel unless I stayed in the shower to do so and if someone is at the sink there is NO WAY of getting by them to use the toilet.

    All in all our stay at the New Yorker was enjoyable.  I would recommend it to a friend for price and service only tho'.

    I had a really good experience at this hotel and I really don't see how you could beat the price for the quality you get. First of I just love the architecture of the front of the hotel! Also other reviews claim the neighborhood is seedy but it seemed totally fine to me and if you drive a few blocks there's a bunch of cute restaurants.

    My boyfriend and I had no problem checking into our room which was ac cool and clean. We spent the day over on Miami beach, When we came back the room key lock on the door was out of batteries or something like that. We went swimming in the great little pool they have and by the time we where done our door was fixed.

    Shower took a little while to heat up but was totally fine, bed was comfy and the room had a flat screen tv and wifi. In the morning we went to the courtyard which was very charming and had a typical continental breakfast.

    I would definitely stay here again and recommend this place. I like it because it is away from all that touristy club stuff that goes on in South Beach. If you want a basic room that is affordable, clean and cute than this is your place!

    this art deco hotel is absolutely tremendous. it's in an up and coming area. the pool was first as were the beds. we were given 10 pillows!! after manipulating the central air conditioning vents with ease, the temperature was nice and cool. the patio was great for newspaper reading, reflecting, and book reading. the parking lot behind the hotel is a little tight, so parking in the front would be a better choice. the room prices were nice and economical. the mostly european and latin american clientele were refreshing. all of the staff were really helpful. after reading the other reviews, i was really, really pleasantly surprised, indeed!

    My husband and I were driving from Orlando to Miami,  it was our first time in Florida so we were making a lot of stops. We didn't have a clue about where we're going exactly and we didn't have any hotel booked.
    We got close to Miami and were really getting tired so I decided to find us a hotel through booking.com .
    I was having problem with my internet connection so I had to do it fast.
    New Yorker boutique hotel pop out with a good price. One night,  80$ for two,  breakfast and wi-fi included.
    Once we got there had to wait about 30 minutes because they didn't get a fax from booking.com for our reservation. Even though I showed to the receptionist our reservation on my phone,  we still had to wait.
    The room is small and basic but can't complain because it's cheap.
    Every room gets earplugs and 2 bottles of water.
    Overall for one night it's ok, wouldn't wanna be there any longer. The location is not good, the pool was dirty and it's noisy.
    But like I said it's cheap so don't expect much.
    O yeah almost forgot, they have free parking, which is a big plus.

    This questionable "hotel" was recommended by a friend who lives with in walking distance from her home. I checked in at about 10:30pm and checked out 4 hours later, at about 1:30am.

    Here is my experience. Checked in, dropped off bags in our room, turned off light in our room, went out to get a bite to eat and a nice drive. When we got back had a heck of a time parking, went up to our room, opened the door and the lights to find the light were on.... called front desk to ask if staff had been up to the room. Male front desk attendant said "No, nobody should have been?". After a few moments of back and forth between myself and my partner, we grabbed our bags and literally ran the heck out of that room, down to the lobby and checked out. My partner and I explained that we felt our safety had been compromised. Someone had clearly been in our room.  

    I'd just like to say I don't rattle easily. I've lived in a neighborhood where I dodged human feces, urine, vomit and junkie needles on a daily basis. I've lived on hooker stroll.

    Parking: Random placement around the buildings. About five spots on the side of the lobby building,  about five in front of lobby, about 5 in front of the pool building. Parking in the rear of the pool building is not marked and poorly lit at night on a small one way dead end. Since the spaces in rear are not marked guests park as they wish, taking up obscene amounts of space. I had to drive in reverse out of the obstacle course and driveway with my passenger directing me from the outside of car. She safely navigated me without  ramming into others guests vehicles

    Walls: Dingy dingy dingy dirty walls around the light switches and door knobs. Once in a while take a rag and wipe the walls down... Oh and they are paper thin. I could hear the guest in the next room shuffle around in there bed and clear there throat.

    Bathroom: I could see the red paint underneath the blue topcoat. It's like someone said "Hey boss I'm out of paint but I got it mostly covered." Seriously crappy unfinished paint job.

    Closet: DIY plywood floor shelf.

    Patio: Concrete slab with cheap Wal-Mart quality patio chairs.

    Wifi: It felt like dial up hell. Don't bother trying to get online.

    Other potential guests: As I was checking in I encountered two other potential guests inquiring about rooms. The first a scantily clad lady of the night. The second a male claiming to be dad and son duo, more like John and twink off the street.

    Staff: Quality caliber people are hard to find at minimum wage rates. Do your job and get off the cell phone.

    Bonus: Creepy male in the rear of the lobby in a junky paper filled "office" in front of a computer shirtless. EWWWWWWWWW CREEPY!!!!

    I value my safety when I travel. They also charged me for two nights after we checked out. Stating that the night we check out the front desk clerk had no authority to do so. Terrible experience.

    We had a great experience staying at the New Yorker Boutique and we will definitely stay here again when visiting Miami.  The staff were extremely friendly and very welcoming.  The rooms are small and noisy and very basic, but hey, you are in the city.  They provide a nice breakfast buffet in a beautiful courtyard.  I have added a number of photos of the courtyard, the pool and surrounding areas.  The staff were extremely helpful in answering local area questions and really added to our overall experience and memories of this trip.  The location is excellent and within short walking distance to some great restaurants.  As mentioned in another review, we too had the pleasure of enjoying an incredible dinner at the Blue Collar.  Just one of many great local restaurants in walking distance.

    If you are looking for a place to stay and watch TV and just hang out in your room, this is NOT the place for you.  If on the other hand you need a clean room, shower, continental breakfast and are looking for a real opportunity to meet people and experience a fun part of Miami on foot, you will enjoy your stay at the New Yorker Boutique.

    There is no way these other reviews are real. At what point does vintage charm override a good stay?  I got stuck here on business due to a convention being in town and no other hotels available.

    The area is a bit shady at night.  If you are from a city, it won't bother you. Just be aware of your surroundings.

    Now the fun part...
    - The Wi-Fi is very Lo-Fi, unusable.
    - Fruit flies everywhere.
    - Dozens of little bugs in the sink every morning.
    - Half used shampoo and lotion.
    - Peeling paint.
    - Water leaks with drywall damage.
    - Dust from water damaged ceiling falling on towels.  In fact there was a small pile on the towel rack and floor.  So, I guess they don't clean the bathrooms to often.
    - No alarm clock.
    - Stains all over "Rug".
    - 10 minutes to get hot water (seriously).
    - No heat, there is a space heater in the closet, but that has death written all over it!
    - No "Do Not Disturb" sign.
    - No Kleenex.
    - No dresser.

    Oh, almost forgot... The smell.  After a day all your clothes will smell like this place.

    Hey, at least you get two free bottles of water a day and two pairs of ear plugs (That actually seemed sealed and not resealed!!) on the nightstand.

    What a dump... Do not stay here.

    I understand the negative reviews but what do you expect for paying under $80 in Miami?  If you can get by the cramped parking lot (afterhours it gets even more cramped but it's free), the dodgy WiFi, the limited cable, the thin walls and the occasional bug, it's a good place to stay.  Think about it; you're 15 mins from South Beach, there's a great restaurant next door, the rooms are big and clean, and the quirky decor grows on you.  I even like the carpet design.  I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.   Sure beats paying double that in South beach for an even worse and smaller hotel.

    Awful! Not worth it, even at this price point.
    Location was bad, in a seedy area and far from any of the fun spots. But that's not the worst, the noise levels were almost unbearable - you could hear your neighbors TV show as if it was in your own room. That's if you could hear anything over the sound of the road that is. Should have known it was a terrible sign when they gave you earplugs beside the bed! Although they had some cute touches on the decor, the bathroom was disgusting and claustrophobically small. The shower head was busted and sprayed the ceiling, the floor - everywhere but me! We didn't plan on spending much time in our room while in Miami so thought this place woudl do fine - good reviews and reasonably priced, but DON'T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE. You can get a really decent hotel in South Beach for only $30 more, and if you really are on a tight budget,m you can get a motel on the same street, closer to downtown, for about half the price. Please don;t bother with this place, when there are so many more hotels in Miami that won't spoil your stay!

    this place was so gross! wasn't expecting 5 star at this price but it was totally not worth the money! the bathroom was the worst part. the toilet seat had a crack in it so when you say it pinched you!! the ceiling was peeling and the floor looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. I refused to take my shoes off the whole time. the noise was also bad. the traffic noise was expected (it's on a busy road) but you could hear everything your neighbor was talking about! paid for 2 nights but only stayed one - decided crashing on a friends floor was better... the only ok thing was that the girl at the check in was nice.

    The room was quaint, the beds are comfortable but the parking is a nightmare!  We are presently blocked in between 2 cars that are parked where they shouldn't be. The hotel is trying to help us find the car owners, but its been 20 minutes and still nothing.  We have a place to be, this is not something I expected to have deal with and I am not happy about it.

    These 5 stars go out the very caring staff that helped this lost Austrian (me!) to find his stupid phone again, give directions and general advice on Miami and were just really friendly all the way through.
    I got myself in more than one stupid situation, but they were always there to help.
    Besides that, you get a stylish hotel for good money. And given Miami prices, it is good money.

    I stayed a few weeks. As other reviewer said the stars go to the helpful staff. Overall a good value.
    There is plenty of parking, front, back and additional on the side; unless you carry big items there is no need for a car once at the location, the Metrobus is close. Many services are within walking distance, restaurants, UPS Store, bank. 24hr convenience store. Nice Park across Biscayne Blvd, with views of the Bay, outdoors Gym. Wi-Fi works.

    As another reviewer said, the negative remarks seem from people who demand a 5 Star Hotel but cannot afford one. The paint was peeling in a couple of spots in the bathroom but I go in there to do other things than admiring the decor. TV signal, was Over The Air antenna HD and I don't go to Miami to spend the Day or Night watching TV.
    Very loud neighbors, I did not have them, defective bathrooms and unclean carpet...Hmm, Hmmm, do these people ever think that they can request a different room?

    If you are looking for inexpensive, yet close to everything, this is a good selection.  I probably wouldn't stay here again.

    Pros:
    -good breakfast in a quaint courtyard.
    -seemed safe even at 3am

    Cons:
    -had to go to the office 2x and call one more time before maintenance could get us hot water for a shower.
    -noise - I could hear every word the person next door was saying and they were speaking at a normal volume.
    -run-down; the place needs some serious work like new floors, bathroom redo etc.  If I were them, I would renovate each room (one by one) with high end finishes until the entire place is done.
    -bad parking: avoid driving past the front lot; you will have to back out around 2 curves.
    -no blow dryer or iron; had to request them at the front desk.
    -the rooms don't have telephone

    Don't stay here. Drive by. Don't get out. Just keep going.

    The gentlemen who checked us in was very nice
    The women I spoke to the next morning argued with me when I asked for a hair dryer and said that there wasn't one in our room.
    The bathrooms were probably original to the property.
    The toilet had to be flushed two time consecutively to work.
    The toilet lever was the same kind you find in public restrooms (big metal lever)
    There was no clock.
    The wifi did work and I used it the 3 nights we were there.
    I was there for 3 nights of concerts at AA arena and it was in an ideal location for that.
    Sometimes it would take 10 minutes to get hot water in the mornings.
    We parked handicapped the whole time we were there, per the staffs' instructions, because parking is so limited.
    Mold on the ceilings everywhere.
    Toilet paper scathed our asses.

    I have never stayed at a 'boutique' hotel such as this one.

    I stayed 4 nights here during Basel and had a pleasant experience. The staff are super friendly and accomodating; they had a private driver show up at 6:00 AM one morning to take my husband to a job.

    The pool was clean yet cold. Good for brisk morning wake up swims.

    The room was bright and clean enough for the price. TV and wi-fi were average. The free breakfast was simple and held in a beautiful courtyard. Plenty of parking and located next to a seedy convenience store that has your basics (beer, candy and water).

    Great place for the price and MUCH nicer than a lot of the grungey south beach hotels I visited during my stay.

    I'll be back.
