If it's an address for shopping you're after, look no further.  The Chambers, with it's 5th ave location brings you up close and personal with fashion houses Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Prada and then some.  Enter through the large wood and steel doors, and you are instantly met with a vision of a Soho-industrial inspired loft or art gallery.  The small lobby, with its soaring ceiling, is industrial minimalist, yet cozy all at the same time.  A two-story fireplace stands guard over the the lobby which opens to the small but always packed Town bar.  As the stylish crowd ebbs and flows between the Town bar and the lobby, well healed diners make their way to the back and down the stairs.  Town, the restaurant, sports 24-foot high ceilings, screened walls and crystal strands stretching from ceiling to floor.  The ten or so tables upstairs and immediately adjacent to the bar, overlook the restaurant and make for a perfect reprieve from the crazyness in the lobby and bar for the conversation minded or the light eater.  Its in Pierre (Four Seasons) territory and that's tough competition, but the truly boutique Chambers, with only 77 guest rooms, wont disappoint.  Add to that an art collection numbering around five-hundred original pieces, and it wont take this review to keep you going back.

Cool space, bad location....biggest knock against the hotel---the only clock in the room was the cable box (seriously??).

Long weekend in NYC?? Why not stay at the fabulous Chambers?? The location is unreal, the staff is uber helpful, the rooms and beds are top notch, and yes, the showers are suburb. We were upgraded to a suite on the 15th floor-which boasted an amazing view, wonderful sitting area, and huge bathroom. Most of all, I loved the attention to details-coloring pencils at the desk, interesting novels on the bookshelf, Red Flower toiletries, and bath salts for the gigantic tub. I love this place.

This is my first time staying here although I've been to NY a dozen times before.   The main lobby is not big but it has a nice, inviting fireplace in the front.  Staff are nice and friendly.

It is a modern-designed hotel.  The layout of the rooms is long and narrow, but everything is clean and nicely designed.  They provide a nice robe and slippers.  The rooms are decent-sized with 2 maid services.  1 in the morning to make the bed, and 1 in the evening to help you turn on lights, re-do bedding, etc.  Nice touch.  

They provide free wireless internet access.    

I went during a relatively busy weekend - with corporate business rates, I paid $335 per night + taxes. I would recommend this hotel to others.

If you're not keen on chains, give this place a try. It's in the core so it's close to everything and it likely has the BEST showers in all of NYC. In addition, the rooms are fair size too by NYC standards. I remember staying at the W on Lexington once and the room was no bigger than a medium sized bedroom. The downside of the boutique hotel is the attitude. There seems to be plenty of that, especially with the front desk staff. That said, you only deal with the front desk for 10 minutes out of your entire trip. Don't let that get in the way of comfort. BTW, if you like quiet, ask for a room in the back (not street facing) +ives: clean rooms, GREAT showers, and quiet -ives: can get staff with serious attitude who don't seem to give a crap and they show it too.

very discrete, sleek but unstuffy hotel in midtown manhattan. the rooms & bath are large and you can really cocoon yourself away from the mad city..in the middle of it.  beds are so comfy i didn't even need ambien to sleep.

This place rocks. Well-designed rooms that are warm yet minimlaistic - a smart move in NYC. The staff appear hip and youthful, but don't fool yourself - they are well-trained and focused on their job. Ma peche - a stellar restaurant, provides room service. the beds are heavenly.

so then why not 5 stars? four words: garbage trucks at night. There is a huge building across the street that pumps out trash. Try to get a room higher up. This is not chamber's fault, but it's a slight bummer.

Pros: the location! It's so close to everything any tourist, business person, or traveling family could ever need. Right across the street from the hotel is Henri Bendel. Isn't that enough? :) It's just barely on the west side, so if you want to do some serious 5th ave. shopping, it's right down the block. There's are F, N, Q, R, and W lines around the area, so if you get sick of the area, you can always just go wherever else. For whatev. reason.
Cons: They might stick you in an ADA room if they don't have availability, but other than that, the staff is very accomdating and friendly.
B-t-dubbs: Say hello to Joseph the doorman. He'll take care of you: luggage, bags, taxis, car service, he does it all. The General Manager at the Chambers is also quite a friendly character.

Definitely the best part of the hotel are the windows.  They are large, and you can open them.  The rest of the hotel is not bad, per se, just not great.  Things are starting to look a little shabby, especially when you look closely.  

Chipping paint, worn carpet, etc.  

The restaurant is pretty good, but again, nothing exceptional.  The one thing  that really did stand out however, is the dessert menu.  Yummy.

A nice boutique stay at a reasonable price for weekend NYC; great staff and central location (Central Park / 5th Ave / Mid-town); would stay again...

Stayed in the Duplex Suite for the weekend at the Chambers Hotel located in midtown NY.

It was marvelous. In walking distance of Central Park. The art in the two level suite was unique, the beds were fantastic and large enough for two people to roll over on without ever touching one another.

Prolly one of my favorite things about the suite other than the view of New York, was the shower, it was like standing below a waterfall. I hope to go back. The only drawback is the cost, a Grand a night, though it is a luxury hotel. :)

From the second that you walk through those beautiful HUGE wooden doors, you will realize that you are entering a quiet, cozy little oasis in the city.  There's an inviting little lounge area (with nifty modern fireplace and seating hearth that camouflages the elevator bank) in the lobby.  The staff is welcoming and professional beyond belief.  

The art throughout the hotel is well-chosen and interesting.  The hotel has a modern decor and the art manages to enhance the atmosphere without totally overwhelming it.  Many (perhaps all?) of the floors have murals along the common hallways.  There is a social/bar area (also functions as the breakfast room in the mornings) on the second floor that is stocked with an ingeniously-designed bookshelf/lectern (that also functions as the railing to look down onto the lobby,) stocked with a wide variety of beautiful art books.

Very well-appointed and delicious breakfast buffet, including fabulous bagels from Balthazar (yes, I asked; they were THAT good!)  If you're looking for more than coffee, freshly-squeezed juice, and pastry, there is a wonderful breakfast menu you can order from that has things like waffles with bourbon maple syrup and variations of Eggs Benedict.

I think that they must have done some renovating since some of the previous reviews were written, because I didn't notice things looking particularly worn and there was an alarm clock provided in the room.

Amazing attention to detail and thoughtful hospitality at this place, from a large roll of paper that functions as a clever desk pad to a mini-bar (basket, really) that includes condoms (!) along with the snacks and drinks, there is no need that the staff hasn't thought of.

The very best, however, was the shower.  I'm thinking that, in this age of water conservation and green-ness, that this luxuriant shower just CAN'T be legal.  Seriously, the best shower I've ever experience in my life:  very powerful downpour, like showering in a waterfall, with plenty of hot water.  Absolutely no water pressure issues at this place!  I did NOT want to get out of that shower!  

My only criticism, and it's minute, is that the metal-pulley reading lamp definitely favors form over function.  A good idea, in theory, but, in practice, when you actually try to adjust it, it wobbles off the pulley track and really won't go up or down very far.  The Chambers would be well-advised to invest in some new ones; these seem cheap and like something made in someone's garage, so they detract (only a little) from the (otherwise perfect) experience.

I tend to stay at this hotel when I am in NY and the rooms are one of the most spacious for a design hotel.  Also, the coloring is not tacky and has a natural warmth.  The amenities are nice too.  

The people who work there are also kind and helpful, so it is like having your own loft in Manhattan!  

Setbacks are that the basic rooms don't have bathtubs, and that you have to walk down the street for NYSC for the gym... (passes are handed out)

But otherwise, hands down one of my favorite hotels in NY!

I am particularly hard in reviews on hotels.  But I really like this place.

First the location is superb.  It is 3 blocks from Central park, and a short  walk from Times Square.  The street is reasonably quiet, and is packed with a number of restaurants and shops

The staff is very acommodating, and the place has a very pleasant vibe.  The rooms are also larger than the usual niche hotels with great beds and yes, as others have noted...an unbelievable shower

A little bit of peace in a frenetic city

This review is long overdue, after a dozen+ stays at Chambers Hotel. I can't say enough good things about this hotel and its staff and I'm already looking forward to my next visit. Chambers offers an unmatched experience if you're looking for seclusion and serenity in the middle of a concrete jungle. The accommodating staff come without any of the pretentiousness you often get at other top hotels. The luxurious, art-adorned rooms are a generous size by NY standards, making one wish this was their very own pied-a-terre in New York City.

Sleek, but comfortable hotel with a boutique feel.  Very chic.  I stayed here with a friend for a birthday trip.  We got an amazing deal (about $169, almost half off the regular rate) from Jesetter. jetsetter.com/invite/mar…

Loved the location, around the corner from Rue 57 (love lamb sliders) and Bergdorf Goodmans, Henri Bendel, etc.

Forget the big chain hotels and try The Chambers for a fabulously personal Midtown experience!   This place is gorgeous and filled with art and stunning decor.  The rooms are modern and well-lit with every conceivable amenity.  But the best part of this charming boutique hotel is the staff.  This was the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered--and I've traveled A Lot.  At the end of my stay, I felt like I was leaving dear friends.  It's definitely not a budget hotel, but the price is average in New York for the level of service.  I've recommended this hotel to everyone.

We heart The Chambers. Not for it's minimal, discreet location or the SEXY fireplace in the lobby. Or for the huge, spacious standard room with blackout drapes. Maybe it's the AWESOMELY FIERCE shower that sort of feels like being posied below an amazon waterfall.

The service is what you would expect of a upscale New York hotel. They exceeded our expectations when the doorman, NOT the concierge remembered our name, hours after check-in and then offered to call the host at Spice Market to notify them that we were running late.

Five stars would be in order if some of the small appliances in the room were a bit more modern and the huge leaning mirror did not do its best to make us look short, warped and wide.

Small, romantic and top notch service. I wish Town. was still next door though. Ma Peche was uber young, too trendy, too bright and smelled like a greasy wok after a night of service.  

Paid $300 for a standard King with valet parking included.

I loved Chambers Hotel.  As a person who actually hates staying Midtown but will do so for convenience sake when the theater is involved, Chambers was far enough away from the chaos & touristy BS of Times Square & the Theater District to make me happy.  I wanted to be close enough to the Metropolitan Opera, but not somewhere that every time I walked outside I was blasted in the face by Times Square.
Instead, when walking out, I was welcomed by Gucci & Henri Bendel.  Ahh, much better!

As you walk through the very heavy doors into Chamber's lobby you are greeted by a cozy yet modern scene, pretty much what you would expect at most NYC boutique hotels.  The hotel's restaurant (Town) overlooks the lobby whose center piece is the glass fireplace surrounded by leather cushions on which to relax.

The rooms are also your normal NYC boutique hotel fare - small, but comfortable & nicely designed.  Each room is outfitted with at least 5 pieces of original art...kind of the gimmick of this particular hotel.  The beds are comfortable & the rooms even have windows which you can open!  I've stayed in alot of NYC hotels, but I must say, this was the first time I encountered windows I could open.  Nice touch.
I loved the bathroom...the waterfall style showerhead was fantastic with adjustable pressure.  I've got a similar one at my home, but the shower experience at Chambers was just really great, all around.

The service was friendly & efficient at Chambers & I even found the other patrons to be quite friendly & laid back, moreso than at many other places I've stayed at.

If you're looking for a hotel in Midtown that is nice, but not outrageously priced & far enough away from the mess that is Times Square I would absolutely recommend Chambers Hotel.  Should I need to stay in Midtown again I will absolutely return!

If you have to stay in the mess of Midtown, I highly, highly suggest this hotel.  It's hidden on 56th between 6th and 5th and has everything you could want within 2-3 blocks.  F train - 1/2 block.  A, C, 1 trains - 3 blocks.  Mangia, one block.  Sushi across the street as well as a great tailor and dry cleaner.  And its in the heart of 5th Ave shopping.  So it couldn't be more convenient.

But, the hotel itself is simply perfect.  Let's dissect:

1.  Rooms:  It's small and boutique with only 6 rooms per floor, each of which are very big for NYC...and I'm talking the standard room.  And if you get a room on the upper floors (total is 14), then you'll get good light.  Otherwise, like anywhere in NYC, you'll be in the dark.  Great closet space with an umbrella and branded chopping bag which turned out to be surprisingly helpful.  Only wish I didn't have to call down for the iron and ironing board...but once I had it, they left it everyday.  AND THEY'RE QUIET.

2.  Decor: The decor is simple, streamlined modern...you'd never know it was last renovated almost 7 years ago.  Warm woods with glass and steel and orange accents.  Each floor has different murals on the walls when you exit the elevator which is nice and colorful.

3.  Shower/Bathroom:  Rain shower housed in glass with chrome accents and a nice large white ceramic sink.  Loved it.  Lighting sucks - it's too dim and I can't tell if I look good when I leave.  I also don't like the way the frosted glass door shuts.  It seems more like a partition.  Nice tile and concrete floors and walls.

4. Restaurants:  Ma Peche is downstairs which offers fantastic french-asian family style food.  Get the pork ribs, summer beans, and rice noodles.  They also have a Milk Bar for coffee and pastries in the AM.

5.  Service: Simply THE BEST.  Everyone and I do mean everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful.  NO ONE acts irritated with questions.  They'll ship packages for you, have their hotel car take you places, and they do everything very quickly.  I never called more than once to have something sent to my room.  They're also very diligent about letting you know when packages have arrived.  They offered to pick up the pants I had tailored across the street.

A big plus too is there's no trendy rif raff at The Chambers.  This place couldn't have been more comfortable and accommodating.

We stayed here on Saturday night, and it was perfect for what we needed. Great location in Midtown. It's attached to Milk Bar/Ma Peche, which is a total plus! Rooms were huge by New York standards.

A couple minor complaints: (1) the hallways and elevator were a little (ok, a lot) dark. Maybe other floors had more light, but the 11th was almost pitch black (2) the bathroom "door" was simply a large piece of frosted glass that did not provide a ton of privacy. It was fine for my wife and I, but probably not the best thing for all situations.

I booked a room here for one night through Jetsetter.  Even though our stay was short it was sweet.  The front desk staff made the check in process painless.  The room was standard size but there was a large closet and the bathroom was lovely was some nice bath products.  And the crowning glory was that Milk bar was in the hotel.  We grabbed some breakfast in the AM and some desserts for the plane ride back.  I would come back here again!

Had a business meeting there and had one of my colleagues stay there. Beautiful, well curated decor everywhere. Amazing staff service. They accommodated last minute requests, crazy late night freight deliveries, etc. etc. and everyone was so pleasant to work with. I highly recommend this hotel not just for staying but for small business meetings.

Nice hotel. Lovely staff. Clean bed. The only thing I did not like us the cement shower. The water leaked outside the shower on to the floor. I had to soak up with three bath towels. Also the shower head hangs over your head like an umbrella. I like a shower head that I can hold. Would I stay there again? Probably not. Definitely prefer the W or Standard.

Absolutely stellar. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

It comes down to three things for me: location, service, and comfort.

The location, given the interests of my boyfriend and I (we're relatively unhip however), was unbeatable--midtown east, on 5th Avenue, just a stone's throw from pretty much any train I need to use. A few blocks away from amazing shopping, Central Park, and great restaurants everywhere. If you're addicted to Greenwich Village/Meatpacking, plenty of trains are nearby to get you there in just minutes. Perfect!

The service was excellent--for such a chic-looking boutique hotel, I was genuinely surprised by the refreshing lack of "attitude". Everyone was friendly and congenial, not just with the patrons but with each other. It looked like they actually liked being there and it made a difference. Also, our housekeeping requests were taken care of immediately--I asked for extra sheets and a bucket of ice as we came back in for the night. Not even five minutes after we got back into our room, both were delivered. It would have been eery if it weren't so convenient.

Then there's the comfort. Goodness. The rooms are not huge, but they're laid out well. Interesting artistic touches, soothing tones (our room was purple, taupe, gray, and brown--it all worked together very well) and textures. The bathroom was fantastic (the waterfall showerhead provided me the best shower I've had in YEARS, I didn't want to leave!) and I loved that the room had a DVD player. This is a hotel that knows what its customers need and anticipates it. I had absolutely no complaints, in fact, I'd be hard pressed to remember a better hotel stay anywhere.

I'm looking forward to coming back to NYC soon, and hopefully the prices will be as hospitable as they were this time around. I am in love with the Chambers Hotel--a modest name for a truly special hotel.

I did not have a room here I just loitered in the Lobby while waiting for a shipment of Thanksgiving croissants, from the milk bar. But oh what a lobby. I was so comfortable and relaxed I got lost in their collection of art books and ended up waiting for those croissants for over an hour, but I didn't even notice. The designs of the furniture were sleek, glossy and minimalist. I find this style to be cold and sterile, yet it was still extremely cozy. They also have a collection of hip art on the walls. It's an inviting place. I dig it.

56th & Cacophony.

I tend to agree with Rachel P that this is somewhat of a secret. We found it after scouring online for a place that didn't have the big hotel overcrowded lobby, in the midtown area and a place that could almost feel like a nice studio apartment in the city. The Chambers is that. We loved the King Suite room we got, with the decent square footage and the big windows that open up to 56th Street. It was almost like a big balcony. With its arty decor, small, inviting lobby and great location, what's not to like. Well, it wasn't all roses. For one, our shower leaked every morning & never got fixed and, more importantly, beware....56th Street seems to be a major thoroughfare for big trucks all night long. So if you are thinking, "Wow, those big windows opening will be great for city fresh air all night long", you may be disappointed. The noise is almost constant cacophony, all night long. It's not the hotel's fault but...

I think we may stay at the Chambers again, but would get a higher floor (we were on 3), and maybe not face 56th, but, rather, the back of the building.

So, bottom line, we really felt this was a great find, and we may go back, but learn to do it differently next time.

I met my friends for drinks in the bar behind their lobby. It's awesome! The menu is really interesting with options like cold noodles, fish cakes (which sound awful, but tasted great) and homemade ginger-ale. The staff is friendly and unpretentious. I'll definitely be going back.

It kind of surprises me that this place doesn't have more reviews, however, after staying here I think I have a better understanding as to why. First off, we drove right by this place without realizing it was our hotel. And it is NYC, so its not like you can just do a u-turn, haha! It is kind of hidden on 56th st and doesn't stick out at all...it was really easy to overlook/miss. On the other hand, this is a great location as it is right off of 5th (great shopping) and still very close to central park...which was important for us.

After getting set up with the valet parking (around $40/night) we walked into the hotel and were pretty taken back, but in a good way. The lobby is extremely nice, but also very small. You could tell right away that this hotel was not very big (maybe 60 rooms), which is nice because it keeps everything pretty quiet, and don't be surprised if they remember your name! Anyways, everyone was so friendly and even offered us a bottled water upon checking in. They offered us an upgrade to a king-size bed and we were given a room on the 9th floor (although I would have liked to be a bit higher).

Each floor has a different theme and all the room numbers are on the floor right in front of the door. They actually give you a huge key instead of a key card, like all the rest of the hotels...pretty cool. I noticed this hotel had a lot of character and personality right away! Our room was a little over 300 sq. ft. The bed was extremely comfortable and they even have an in-room safe. I was a little surprised that the flat panel TV was the size of a computer screen...I really expected at least a 37 inch. Also, the rainfall shower was pretty nice, however, the space is kind of oddly used. Being a girl and all I found it a bit challenging to shave my legs....call me crazy I guess.

Housekeeping was awesome and they even do turn-down service and leave a bottle of water with truffles! Each time we left and came back there a doorman was always there to greet us....it was the little things that really made this hotel!

This hotel makes a for a great stay if you are looking to be steps from 5th ave. shopping and close to the park. Also, the overall service is exceptional and the rooms are relatively affordable compared to what else is in the nearby area.

Sexy, sleek and modern without being pretentious or intimidating, it is warm and welcoming.

The hotel is attached to Town. restaurant and I would recommend eating dinner there. Or just grabbing a drink from their bar.

We arranged to have our party start in the terrace lounge that overlooks the lobby/fireplace and to have a waitress come for drink orders. She was professional and on top of things and totally cool when those who were just dropping in grabbed a single drink at the bar to save time.

The suite was really well laid out, with the living room area parallel to the bedroom. There was a comfy couch and coffee table on the window side and the opposite side desk area allowed us to set up birthday cupcakes for the guests to munch on while destroying the cases of champagne we brought up.

The shower had great pressure, which is one of the few things I remember from the next morning's hangover-clouded daze.

We are a family of nine and we stayed at the Chambers in January.   We all travel
a lot and I have never written a review because none of the hotels stood out as
anything extraordinary except for the Chambers.   They took such good care of
us from the minute we walked into the lobby.  Tickets, restaurants were always
the best and everywhere we went we were welcomed with open arms
because we were from "The Chambers".    The staff couldn't have done more
if they tried.    Thanks Chambers see you in June

Delightful little hotel. Rooms have unique character, clean, great rate, great location, no card keys but actual hard keys. (Which in my growing digital experience is becoming a novelty..) Minimalistic in its design. Incredible shower pressure. (I do enjoy a great sunflower head open shower deluge experience.) my typical stay is the Marriott so you can imagine my surprise at finding this little gem in the rough.. However there's really nothing rough about this hotel. room service is great, the attached restaurant is quick to serve, and tasty. Beds are clean, high count linens, and mattresses are ever so refreshing.. Each floor has a slight variation in hallway theme helping even the most inhibriated find their way home for the eve.. Highly recommended!!

Wonderful hotel. I had stayed at the W on Lexington the night prior to staying at the Chambers, and the Chambers blows them away. Although the hotel doesn't look like much from the street, you're greeted warmly the moment you approach (or as soon as you open the doors, if you happen to walk up at a time when the doorman is inside).  They offered bottled water during check-in, and all staff members were extremely friendly and well-informed.

I was here to help out with a business event (conference room rental + a suite upstairs for a small gathering later in the evening).  One of the desk girls remembered the conference room rental and later asked how everything went.  Every small request was handled politely and immediately.  The suite itself was gorgeous and well-maintained, and I don't remember hearing a bit of noise from any other rooms. Also - chocolates and water were delivered with the turn-down service.

If you get a chance, the terrace suite here is phenomenal.  It's only on the 6th floor, but you get a huge outdoor area that's perfect for looking out at the city.  Based on my experiences with NYC hotels so far (including others stays at the Sheraton by Times Square and the Cassa Hotel), I'm convinced that boutique hotels like the Chambers are the way to go.

One more thing - the wifi was totally free, which is nice. Most high-end hotels love to tack on dozens of tiny fees, and it's nice to see one that doesn't.

I loved this place.  The staff here is amazing; super friendly.  The shower may well be the best I've ever had... ever.  The lounge area on the 2nd floor was a nice work space.  The only real let down was that wifi in the room was pretty unreliable.

BEST hotel I have ever stayed in!! The location is beyond perfect! Short blocks from all shopping/central park/times square. Now the service is impeccable...We had the pleasure of being taken care of by Jose, Ty and Beth! They were so awesome and truly treated us like royalty!! I cannot say enough wonderful things! The rooms are super roomy for NYC...and the best part are the showers!! I kid you not...just the showers alone is worth the stay!! BEST trip I've had. Thank you Chamber for being so amazing to us!! :))))

I'm almost tempted not to review this place because it seems to be somewhat of a secret and I don't want to let the secret out. Stayed here with my boyfriend last weekend and I was so impressed! We got a great deal on Jetsetter and based on the price and what I've paid for NYC hotels in the past, I had just about no expectations. The people that work here are just amazing. I always expect a snobby attitude in NYC, especially when not paying extravagant prices. The staff gets to know you when you walk in and makes sure you're treated well up until you leave.

I was expecting the usual tiny hotel room but was very pleasantly surprised. Nice size closet, big windows, high ceilings. It's not just a bed and nothing else, it's actually a decent sized hotel room. It has a modern warehouse vibe that I love, large flat screen tv's, very nice showers. And the glass bottles of water they give out are so classy!

We were rushing in and out all weekend as NYC trips usually go, but I kind of wish we could have just relaxed and spent some more time in the hotel. We didn't even have a second to look around the lobby area until we were on our way out, but the lobby was so comfortable with couches and books all over. It would have been a great spot to have a cocktail.

They were also very accommodating to hold our bags on our last day after check out, and didn't slip in any extra fees. Very VERY impressed. This will definitely be my go-to hotel in NYC...and the location is amazing! Right by the park, 5th Ave, great restaurants, it really doesn't get much better. Thanks Chambers for a great weekend!

The shower, the shower, the shower, the service. These are the reasons you should stay here. The beds are comfortable, the staff helpful, but I want nothing to do with it, all about the shower.

Also, milk bar room service, and ma peche happy hour.

Super friendly staff.  The front desk is very helpful, polite, and friendly.  They go out of their way to make sure your stay is as wonderful as possible.

They are very knowledgeable about the area and what activity or restaurants are good.

Decor is clean modern and overall lovely.

Really trendy and chic boutique hotel.
The rooms were clean and big by NYC standards. All the amenities were great.
The location is just perfect !!! Super close to Shopping/Central Park/MOMA and most other attractions are only a quick cab ride away. Choosing this hotel for our stay in NYC was probably the best decision of our whole trip.

Last but not the least, staff is very friendly, helpful and polite.

A hidden gem indeed!!!

I've stayed here twice and while I do like it, I'm not completely smitten.  Whenever I go to NY for business, I usually stay at another nearby hotel that I absolutely love.  I think it's the best kept secret ever and so no, I'm not going to give out the name.  I'm selfish like that.

- The shower.  Yes, this might be the absolute best thing about this hotel.  I have a love affair with their showerhead.  Not that kind of love affair, get your mind outta the gutter.  
- The staff.  They're all kind of young and trendy.  But they're all super nice.
- The interior/decor.  I dig it all.  The whole artsy feel of the rooms.  The colorful murals on the walls.  The velvet couches.  Meow.
-  Room was clean.  Maybe a little worn down in some areas but nothing too major.
- Ma Peche is located in this hotel.  Go get your world rocked by their pork buns.

- The rooms are small.  Not tiny, but small.  Not bad for NYC standards but not great for what they charge.  I usually pay considerably less for tons more space at my "secret hotel."
-  Both times I've stayed here, my views have been less than desirable and directly facing another building.  I'm not sure how my co-worker lucked out but he booked the same room I did and got a terrace.  Good for him, sad face for me.
- My most recent stay, my air conditioner vent was all rattly and made it a little difficult to get to sleep.  

Tip:  Don't be afraid to drink the blue bottled Saratoga water in your room.  They're free!

This is going to my new no-so secret secret.  Great location, fun vibe, welcoming lobby with a fireplace and a great bar.  The room is big enough, the bathroom was luxe, and the staff was accommodating and friendly.  The price is right too - under $400 for NYC midtown boutique is a deal.

The hotel is in a great location, and has unique features like an actual key for the room, Saratoga bottled waters, free wifi, and the fact that they welcome pets but with no fee; plus, they gave our dog a bed, bowls with greenies and bottle water!! We also got a corner room with offered us more windows and they did a good job getting the flowers and champagne that my husband ordered in our room while we were away.

There are some minor issues: the king size bed isn't really king size, the ceiling is bare with pipes, and cracks, the ac/heat seems to never stop running, and the bed doesn't have a frame. It leaves the room slightly unpleasant...but nonetheless those are minor compared to the positives! Plus, room service from Chef David Chang's ma peche downstairs is a really unique option!!

I've spent numerous nights in NYC, often on friend's couches (or floors), but a number of times with established, well known hotel brands (Hilton, Starwoods, etc...), and I can tell you this, Chambers Hotel outshines all of my previous stays without question.

The rooms are clean, very comfortable and modernly appointed; the bathrooms are spacious enough and feature a terrific rain shower head; however, the value in the Chambers Hotel goes well beyond the accommodations.  The service and the staff is quite possibly the best I've ever been treated to in Manhattan.  Specifically, the concierge who went well out of his way to make us feel welcome each morning (and late evening) and truly made the weekend memorable.

Of course you have hundreds of hotels to choose from in New York, but I've found my new favorite, and one I will surely patronize the next chance I get.
