    I LOVE this hotel. City Club truely is a "hidden gem" in NYC.  Location is great (44th between 5th and 6th avenues), staff and service are fantastic and the rooms are perfect.  The oversized chocolate marble showers with CO Bigelow bath ammenities are a nice plus!  The restaurant DB Bistro is great- the famous DB burger truely is the most unbelievable thing I have ever tasted.  I would definately reccomend you try City Club!!!!!!

    We took the Amtrak Acela train from DC and stayed at the City Club Hotel on a Manhattan vacation.  It is very well located only a couple of blocks from Times Square - an easy walk.  The staff was very friendly; I only detected a hint of petulance from one of the desk clerks during one interaction.  For the most part the entire staff was very pleasant.  The hotel is dark with dark brown being major color theme.  I had a room with a king-size bed - the room was still fairly compact, but hey, this is New York.  The room also had a daybed of sorts along the windowsill, which became a table for luggage.  The room was equipped with a minifridge/minibar.  The TV was located behind the mirror, which was a unique way to save space but filtered the picture somewhat.  The TV was audible from a speaker in the bathroom.  The marble-tiled bathroom was spacious and well-appointed.  The cleaning staff did a wonderful job while being completely unobtrusive.  Clean towels were plentiful and two bathrobes were provided for your use.  C.O. Bigelow products were provided for bathing.  Safes were available in the rooms to store valuables.  My particular room was in the back and very quiet - late at night it was like sleeping in a pitch black, quiet cave, which was fine by me, but if you like light and airy, this isn't the place for you.  The wireless internet was irritating as you had to log on again every time you used it, and the signal was a little weak, but it did work.  No pool but the hotel adjoins a very nice upscale restaurant, although we never ate there - there are many bars and restaurants (both cheap and expensive) among the surrounding blocks.   As for hotel cost, I got a deal through Priceline ("Name Your Own Price") and was very satisfied, paying about 30% less than the "average" Manhattan price for a hotel in this category.  

    I would describe the hotel as a nice boutique hotel, but I didn't quite feel it was 4 stars - I would give it 3 1/2 stars as the decor, although nice, seemed a little tired.  But for the price I paid relative to the accomodations I received, I am completely satisfied with my stay at the City Club Hotel and would recommend it to the leisure Manhattan traveler.

    This is one of the best hotel stays I've ever experienced. We arrived on a Thursday evening. The lobby is super small but very NYC chic. The front desk attendant informed us we were upgraded to a suite, which was exciting. We took the elevator up to the 3rd floor, opened the door and were astounded. It was a two-level suite - living room, powder room, desk and stocked mini bar on the first floor and, up the spiral staircase, a gorgeous bedroom with kingsize bed and large bathroom with shower. The stunner was the floor-to-ceiling window spanning both floors with a view of 44th Street below. We were able to walk out onto the balcony and enjoy our cocktails. We were blown away. I felt like I was a celebrity living in NYC and this was my apartment! Street noise aside, the night's stay was comfortable. We really did not want to leave. Service was excellent - we asked for ice (note there's no ice on the floors so it must be brought to you) and it arrived within 10 minutes. Whenever we left the hotel a staff person opened the door for us and also took care of hailing cabs. Artwork, lighting, decor - everything was outstanding. There are dimmer switches that may be hard to find on some of the light switches, so look for those if you dislike the low-light ambience. Don't forget your iPod - there's a docking station (at least in our room) and I regrettably forgot mine. I want to stay here again, but I really think I just lucked out in getting this amazing suite. We didn't try DB Bistro Moderne because I didn't think my husband would like the small portions for high prices (we ate at Bar Americain instead). All in all, a dream of a hotel stay for us!

    This place was great. Rooms aren't big, but this is ny. And they seem bigger than they really are, per good design and well-used mirrors. Great bathroom, suede-ish trendy couch, tv concealed behind the mirror. Attentive and accommodating staff.  Highly recommended.

    A trendy, well-designed (Jeffery Bilhuber) boutique hotel located in midtown Manhattan. Very chic and modern. Rooms are on the smaller size but you make up for it with high-quality linens, the spacious marble bathroom and impeccable service. Hermes products and Dean & Deluca goodies make for a well-executed hotel that pays attention to the smallest details. For a boutique, trendy hotel in Midtown that's not ultra-costly it's definitely  deserves four stars.

    I absolutely love and adore this hotel in Manhattan. I think it's a true hidden gem that surpasses some of the other 4/5 star hotels in the area.  It's located in Hotel Row, so there's a lot of competition in the area but this hotel truly stands out on its own.  

    Cleverly and modernly decorated, they carry Hermes toiletries and Dean & Deluca goodies.  Fantastic turn down service with mints on the bed, average sized hotel room (hotel rooms in Manhattan are pretty small in general) and a good restaurant downstairs.  The staff was friendly and the beds were comfy.  I truly enjoyed my stay here, although it is on the pricey side, and would definitely be a returning customer.

    The City Club Hotel received a lot of press upon its opening in 2001, as a cut above what people like to call boutique hotels (as the word boutique has become synonymous with small rooms and no services, it's understandable that they did not even want to be associated with the word).  No expense was spared, from the Jeffery Bilhuber design to Daniel Boulud's restaurant DB Bistro Moderne (home of the famous $30 hamburger, one of the most extravagant anywhere, stuffed with, among other things, foie gras and braised shortribs).

    It's great to see that this beautiful hotel has stood the test of time.  The expense that was put into it has worn well, and it still feels upscale and refined.  On a block which boasts hotel classics like the Algonquin, and modern legends like the Royalton, the City Club is a study in understated elegance, from its subtle brown awnings with discreet blue lettering, to the lovely staff that make it feel like a home away from home.

    I have stayed at this hotel dozens of times, and it is indeed like a second home.  And not all rooms are created equal - the small rooms are very small, and barely enough to fit one person, let alone two.  However, the mid-size and large rooms are excellent - with a big bed, microsuede bench/daybed, desk, and side table.   The colors are very soothing - tans, dark brown, ivory.   One of the biggest perks is that the bathrooms are huge, no matter the size of your room.  It's probably one of the best bathrooms in any hotel I've been in, outside of Asia.  Big pedestal sink, marble shower, and large full-length mirror.  Products by Hermes and Bigelow.  Full-sized hair dryer and fluffy robes. Clock radio with i-Pod docking station.  Zagats guide in the room.  Large umbrella for use during spring or fall deluges.  These are things that are a very, very big deal to me, and I never fail to appreciate the details.

    The staff here is unbelievably nice, and they always remember me and greet me warmly.  Oh, and little side note, it is mostly made up of incredibly handsome young men!!  Oh, my.  I have caught myself on the verge of batting my eyelashes a few times - and I am a happily married woman! It's like having your own personal Michael Bergin times ten who will bring you a DVD or computer cable or a $30 hamburger at any hour of the night.  

    Prices vary, so if you can catch a good deal for this hotel on Quickbook or another travel site, give it a try.  The midtown location is good for business or pleasure, and the overall experience is as close to perfect as you can get - and that's saying a lot in this wonderful, vibrant, competitive, and demanding city.

    If I could make this a negative star I would.  I booked this hotel as part of an expedia package.  I flew a red eye and got to the hotel about 8am...too early for their check in.  Four hours later, and hearing several people check out I went to check on my room.  I was told I would have to wait another four hours.  The employees were unhelpful, rude, and unable to keep their private conversation private.  I ended up loosing a nights worth of money but went to stay in another hotel.  I will never stay there again.

    first of all, what kind of 3.5 or 4 star luxury hotel does not include breakfast as part of the rate!! the check in time is after 3pm and the check out time is before 12, so i spend few hundred dollars for a tiny room filled with bad lighting just to be in the room for less than 24 hours, its not even charged right when u ask customers to pay a full rate when they dont even get to use the room for the full 24 hours. my parents and I had to walk around the city from 11am to 3pm just to check in and i have to rush from work from 3rd ave to help them check out at early 12am, and my parents have to starve themselves because they dont offer morning breakfast for free. If you are asking ur customers to pay so much money for a tiny room, then the breakfast better be free instead of asking them to pay additional dollars for a simple morning meal!!! If i were you, i would picked a better hotel. Somewhere that offers nice free breakfast

    Looking for something new and different - not disappointed!  Went to NYC for a weekend romantic getaway.  Room was Great - Contemporary furnished and decorated, large marble bath, quiet, and generally - Just perfect.  Also, convenient location to anything desired in the City.

    Oh, how  I love thee, City Club. Boutique hotels, esp. in NYC, are kind of a crapshoot. When executed well, they can be a joy to stay at. The flipside of the coin are the fleabag joints using modern decor in masquerading as boutique hotel. City Club falls in the former camp.

    It's all in the little details. The details are what make the difference between an average hotel experience and a great one. See below.

    Top 10 Reasons Why the City Club is Melanie's Official Mid-town Manhattan Homebase:

    10. It's located a mere 3 1/2 blocks from my company's NYC offices.
    9. Staffed with cute young (straight) boys who provide awesome service (Jeff) and remember me when I return for a stay
    8. Built-in cozy divan with big pillows to lounge on
    7. Dream hotel bath pimped with a fantastic shower (I actually look forward to taking showers there); awesome C.O. Bigelow toiletries; plush, oversized SOFT bath towels; and even sound from your TV piped in (so you don't have to miss out on CNN while getting ready for work in the AM)
    6. Business cards printed with my name, Zagats guide and Time Out magazine in the room
    5. Amazingly comfy bed with Frette linens
    4. World class minibar stocked with top-shelf liquor and Dean & Deluca goodies
    3. Dimmable mood lighting throughout (including the bathroom)
    2. DVD player in the room with a nice selection of DVDs you can borrow for free (including a small selection of retro 70s porn...haha) and iHome dock for your iPhone/Pod (important for a media junkie like me)
    And the No. 1 reason why I heart the City Club...(drumroll)
    24-hour room service provided by the hotel's on site restaurant, David Boulud's DB Bistro Moderne (enough to make any foodie swoon...the first time I stayed there I had the infamous DB foie truffle short rib burger and this amazing chocolate clafloutis dessert delivered to my room....he-llo honey!?)

    I really liked this hotel! They have C.O Bigelow goodies in the bathroom which was nice, the room was small but bigger than the last hotel I stayed at in NY. The bathroom was really nice and bed was cozy! I didnt give it a 5 because we looked out of our window to see...a brick wall to another building, when it was morning you couldnt even tell thats how close to the other wall we were.

    This place reminds me of hotels in Europe.  Everything is small, but small does not mean cramped or inefficient.  The design is chic and modern and it really feels like a little oasis in the middle of Manhattan.  Literally the middle - 44th street, which means bright lights, noise and theater district hustle.  But my room was secluded, dark and quiet.  I felt like I was at a spa (especially with the bath products) and the bed was so soft and feathery, I had a hard time waking up, which says a lot for this insomniac.  The staff was friendly and helpful and the very best part of all?  They tuck you in with chocolate chip cookies.

    I just got home from my one night stay here and I loved it. We parked in the garage across the street which was really convenient, and were checked in really quickly. We were upgraded from the petite room to the queen so we had a bit more space - bonus! The room was small but the space was used really well.  The mini bar was in a small closet-like space by the TV, which was also in the wall.  A set of speakers is also in the ceiling of the bathroom which was a nice touch.  Speaking of the bathroom, it had a full sized shower, bidet, 2 bath robes, and the best smelling shampoo, conditioner, shower gel & lotion EVER (and after using the conditioner my hair felt like silk!!).  I am also such a sucker for turn down service, and when we came back after being out all night, the room was dimly lit with a plate of 2 huge chocolate chip cookies waiting for us on the bed.  HELLO.  Next time I'm in the city I'm definitely staying here again!

    Great location. King lux room great size. The bed was a little hard. Great staff!  The mini bar was well stocked. Sound proofing needs work. Overall I enjoyed the hotel for the price and style.

    Not a pleasant check in experience. Had to wait for room until 3 pm. Checked online and there were rooms available. Upgraded from double to queen which was nice. Small room but expected so thats fine. Room was hot but they turned on cool air prior to arriving. Shower is decent size. Two toilets, not sure what the  second is used for. Nice ihome player to charge my iPhone so I'm happy there. Overall not bad.

    I would def. go back....

    I was in NYC for a wedding and stayed here with a friend and a couple and their 7 month old baby.   I was a great place to stay.

    The staff was super nice and attentive.  The rooms were large by NYC standards and the shower awesome (large rain head showerhead)... even though i love my bubble bath this shower was to die for.  Go take a shower and think of me.

    I stayed here for one night in April 2011 for a business trip. I really do like boutique hotels when done right. However, sometimes there are little flaws and quirks that can ruin a boutique hotel experience. All in all I would say my stay at City Club was okay.

    Pros: (1) The modern decor was refreshing compared to some other sterile hotels; (2) great location - on a no-so busy street but close enough so that I could get everywhere that I was going very quickly; (3) very helpful front desk staff - I had them store my luggage and get it out twice and while they were a little disorganized, they were very accommodating; (4) very comfy beds; (5) delicious room service breakfast; (6) on that note, great restaurant, DB Bistro, attached to the hotel - really good food and great service; (7) turn down service with chocolate chip cookies!; (8) free internet.

    Cons: (1) Tiniest room ever! I mean, it is New York, so I wasn't shocked or disappointed. I just found it comically small. Pretty much just enough room for a bed and that was it; (2) on that note, no space to put my luggage. Like I said before, I didn't really mind the smallness of the room, especially given that I was only staying one night, but there was literally no room to put my suitcase anywhere. I ended up setting it on top of the air conditioner/windowsill. This wouldn't fly if it had been hot and I'd needed the AC. They should really figure out a way to incorporate a luggage rack or something; (3) window that opens to the wall of the next building - why even bother having a window? Next time I would definitely request a street-facing room and just live with the noise; (4) my room had ants on the floor. Gross; (5) why have a bidet in such a small room? What is the point of having THAT when you have so little space for anything else? Remove that and put a luggage rack in the bathroom; (6) show curtain that did little to prevent water from going onto the floor.

    I am the hugest fan of City Club Hotel.  I have stayed at just about every hip/trendy hotel in the city and this midtown boutique hotel just gets it 100% right.  Not only is the hotel impossibly chic- designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber- but the service is impeccable.  Every time I go (and I've been going for business every six months for the past 4 years or so), they seem to have the same staff and they're all incredibly sweet, friendly, and accommodating.  I actually feel like I'm staying at a fabulous friend's house- not a hotel.  In fact, last time I was there I thought (foolishly!) that my assistant and I were their only guests (they are SO attentive), later to learn they were sold out to capacity!  (In this economy, that tells you they are certainly doing something right!!)  

    The rooms are roomy and super stylish (and I'm picky in that arena), the beds soft and welcoming, and the bathrooms (chocolate marble) are exquisite.  

    I honestly can't enough about this hotel and their staff. They have become my home away from home and I just adore them.

    In my limited experience with New York City tourism, I was pretty pleased with my brief, one-night stay at the City Club. I chose it primarily based on location (I had a work commitment half a block away) and price (way more affordable than other nearby -- and admittedly swankier -- options).

    Pros:
    - Price! Though, I did look up rates for dates later in the year, just for curiosity's sake, and the rate for the Petite room were considerably higher -- nearly double. Not sure if that's seasonal or a reflection of general price increases.
    - Free Wi-Fi! I get real annoyed at the ridiculous daily/hourly rates business hotels will charge for Wi-Fi these days, so complimentary access has earned City Club a few bonus points.
    - Cookies! Two enormous, soft, yummy chocolate chip cookies with turndown are quite a nice touch.

    Cons
    - Size. I pretty much knew what I was getting into when I booked the Petite room, and I wasn't staying long so it really didn't matter all that much, but I would've traded a slightly smaller bathroom (who uses a bidet, for real?) for a bit more "living" space -- maybe a desk or a table of some kind so i didn't have to eat dinner off my lap in bed.
    - Lighting. Man, this place is dark. Maybe they were going for chic, but it just ended up being a little depressing. Especially considering my window looked out into, literally, nothing.

    I'll agree with others that this has the feel of European hotels - you'll trade plush features and expansive square footage for affordability and style - so if you're OK with that, then City Club will do right by you.

    I've stayed at the City Club Hotel twice. Both experiences were not all that great.

    It's in a great location in midtown, great for short stays if you work near by....which I did. I've been to NY a few times for work, with my company's office around the corner and 2 blocks up on 5th Ave.

    While the remodeling has been excellent with lots of attention paid to looking cool....it just tries too hard

    The floors in the room look like vulcanized cork tiles and are often not properly adhered to the subfloor. I ended up tripping over the loose tiles sticking more than half the time.

    The rooms are small and the lighting is HORRIBLE. While the ambiance is nice....there was no attention to detail on the placement of the light fixtures. In one room I had....all the sconces in the relatively narrow  entrance of the room were at shoulder level...so walking in or out carrying my bag and coat was almost always a sure thing to attract the flimsy plastic shade covering the fixture. As was apparent for previous guests as the shades were all cracked/broken.

    If you happen to get a room on a lower floor....don't even think about trying to get any sleep. The light well between buildings is filled with air conditioners and other machinery that operates 24/7 at high volume.  The windows were not even double paned, nor were they operable. Not that you'd want to open the window.....the ledge outside my window was covered in bird feces, unhatched eggs and the surrounding ledges weren't much better.

    The bathroom while feeling more spacious than the actual bedroom/living room was not without flaws.

    The water from the shower would easily flow out onto the main bathroom floor. On my second visit, I noticed they had corrected this by adding another piece of granite to make a small raised section to keep the water in.

    The bathroom like the bedroom/living room was also dark, mostly because of the black/dark brown granite and black porcelain sink, with only one single light overhead.

    The free wireless internet while available was unreliable....I had better luck using the free wireless from the Neighboring hotels...The Algonquin and the Iroquois.

    The service is ok....although the day time front desk manager has a "creepy thin guy" feel to him....which was confirmed by the office manager and finance staff of my company who were invited to lunch by him to try and create a good rapport with my company. That did not work out as the City Club's management was notorious for upgrading rooms on my fellow co-workers and not asking for permission from my company's management....and sticking us with the bill. As an example....one of my co-workers was given a suite on the 8th floor, he was told it was an upgrade....but not told it was not at a discounted price since the hotel was sold out. My co-worker later found when he was checking out that his credit card was overlimit because at $1800 a night for almost 2 weeks the hotel had eaten up his credit card.

    The City Club while an entrepreneurial effort with decent styling was obviously pushed through at a hurried pace with many corners cut and little attention to detail and little done to keep up the crap work done.

    I would not recommend the City Club Hotel to anyone

    I had a great experience with this hotel and here is why:

    *Location is perfect...right in between Time Square and Grand Central Station; short walk to subway, shopping, restaurants
    *Staff is incredible-so helpful, friendly and professional
    *Rates are very reasonable for midtown.  I reserved a petite room for 149.25/night and got a free upgrade to a Queen size room...Kudos!
    *The room was nicely decorated and very clean.
    *Bed was comfy
    *The bathroom was large, nice and there are mirrors everywhere.

    Next time I visit NYC, this will be my hotel again.

    City Club is a small boutique hotel, sandwiched between the Algonquin and Sofitel hotels on the 44th Street.  Located 2 blocks from Time Square and Broadway Theaters and 3 blocks from Grand Central, it can't be more convenient for any traveler, business or pleasure.

    The hotel is elegantly modern, a little frayed on the edges, but provide excellent services and a sense of luxury.  In the evening their turn down service includes 2 chocolate chips (!) and tomorrow's weather report. If it happens to rain, you can grab the umbrella in your closet and go. The rooms are small but very clean. I was actually amused by the TV behind the mirror with speakers on the ceiling both in the bedroom and bathroom.  Daily newspapers in a canvas blue bag are delivered and hung on your doorknob every morning on business days. These small touches will make you feel super special.

    Their in house restaurant  DB, has one of best celebrity chef ever, Daniel Boulud.   Make sure you order breakfast for room service.  It was delicious!

    GREAT location for us.  we were in the city to see fela! on broadway and had only a short walk from the hotel to the theater.  made our reservation for one of the more affordable (but still expensive!) rooms, and got upgraded at no charge when we checked in.  AWESOME to get back from the show and find two huge chocolate chip cookies waiting for us on our turned down bed!  very cool decor.

    front desk staff weren't super friendly, and there was really no budging them to get an early check-in when we arrived.  since we got an upgrade, though, it was worth the wait.

    Great location, service and room.

    I had been working like a dog for 2 months and needed to pamper myself.  So on my next trip to NYC, I dropped into the City Club.

    Immediately upon arrival I was given an upgrade to a suite.  It was quite big for a NYC room.  The bathroom was HUGE!!!  And it had a bidet in it, if you care about those things.  The room was beautiful and the bed was soooooo comfy!  I stayed longer in my room than I normally do on trips to NYC as I liked it so much.

    Favorite part was the home made cookies that were on my bed when I came back from a night on the town.

    Biggest drawback--if you don't get a front room, then you won't get a view.  Also, the room can be a little on the dark side even with all lights on.

    The Pros:

    +Staff is very nice, and offered to store our bags after we checked out, as we were all heading to a conference before flying out. The gentleman at the door helped us get a car when we came back to get our bags; we were very grateful for that.
    +The lobby and adjoining restaurant/bar are small but attractive, and the location is great for being near Times Square (ugh).
    +Turndown service includes two big, soft chocolate chip cookies, which is a lovely touch. Room service menu was expensive for my taste ($15 for a veggie burger), but probably not abnormal for NYC, and there's a late-night menu.
    +The bathroom is the nicest part about the joint. It's huge. There was a bidet in mine, along with a phone between that and the toilet (please, spare your friends and family, and never, ever use that phone). C.O. Bigelow toiletries are nice, and there are fluffy white robes.
    +Bed is all fluffy down, and after a long day of walking around, it was awesome to sink into that. Alarm clock has an iPhone dock.
    +Everything was very clean. I didn't find a single stray hair in the bathroom or bed linens.

    The Cons:

    -Room size. I would have happily sacrificed some bathroom space for any more space in the room. I can't imagine two people sharing this room, especially tall people. Ceilings are low, even in the hallways. I'm glad I'm not claustrophobic.
    -The minibar/fridge is in the bottom of the closet, making it impossible to hang anything long, like a dress.
    -They give you a free wifi login, but the service was spotty at best. I did not try the "trouble connecting?" hotline, as I wasn't in the room all that much, but when I was, it was frustrating to have to reconnect every 10 minutes. It hardly worked at all on my iPhone, and because I was on the second floor (ground level to the a/c unit of the hotel next door), I got no regular cell service either.
    -Everyone in my party reported having trouble with their room keys. I had to go back downstairs and have them re-swipe my keys. However, the doorman followed me to my room to make sure they worked so that I didn't have to come down again.

    All in all, it was a nice place to stay on the company's dime, when I was the only person in the room, but I wouldn't come back for a vacation with my partner; we'd go somewhere a little roomier.

    I love this place. I live in Brooklyn and I've stayed here twice -- one night each time -- when my boyfriend and I decide to treat ourselves. The rooms are beautifully lit, cool and quiet with pillows from heaven and a great bathtub with lavender peppermint soap. The first time we stayed here they upgraded us to a bigger room free of charge and that's what kept us coming back. Oh and did I mention the chocolate chip cookies that were waiting for us in the room when we got back from our night on the town? What a delight.

    We booked this through a hotwire hot rate and received a really good deal. In addition we were upgraded to a queen suite at no additional charge. The front desk and doorman were very friendly and helpful, not just upon arrival but all weekend. The room was clean, not spacious at all, but very clean, very quiet, and comfortable. The cleaning staff never knocked on our door once when we were in the room, they always seemed to know when we were out to clean the room or do the nightly turndown service - which was a nice touch. The concierge helped us find a bar to watch the football game and gave us some great recommendations. In addition we found out we can bring our little dogs with us on the next trip! The hotel is centrally located in midtown, a short walk from Times Square (roughly 2 blocks), a few blocks, also a short walk, to shopping, and great coffee is right across the street! Parking was right across the street too which was helpful. I would say we would definitely stay here again!

    Meh.

    I love the idea of this boutique hotel, and the location is great for the Theater District (bang in the middle) but ...

    1. the decor is definitely fraying around the edges.  It looks like it was a cheap job, which a few years in is showing.  The corridors of the hotel look like a crappy dorm!

    2. there were some really major design flaws: the TV was behind a two way mirror, and really high up.  Couldn't really be seen well through the mirror, and even if you didn't mind that, it was WAY too high to watch comfortably from the bed.  Similarly, the toilet was RIGHT up against the wall.  I am not a big girl and there was one inch of space between my thigh and the wall when using the toilet.  This would be very awkward/messy for a larger person.

    3. no coffee!!  I am used to having a coffee maker of some kind in the room.  And some teabags.  Not only could I not get a coffee in my room, they also didn't have any in the lobby.  I called down to check, and they told me I could get room service coffee for $4.50, but it works out at $8.40 after the room service charges.  !!!!  Sure, there's a cafe across the street ... but I like to have something available in the hotel.  That doesn't cost me almost $10.

    4. there were windows ... but the view was of the building 2 feet away.  The room was really dark, even with all the lights on and the blinds up.  Not a major thing, but annoying.

    5. I didn't get any cookies :(

    I specifically booked a room here after reading Liz S's review, so I'm not sure what to add, really. Well, let me make an attempt...

    The staff - from the doorman to the front desk to the maid - were all exceptional. Sure they were professional, but moreso they exuded the sort of familiarity and friendship you can only really find in a good boutique hotel.

    Our room was large by New York standards, with a tub and kingsize bed, with plenty of unpacking room for about $300 per night. The room was well appointed with classic books serving as artwork and a tv "hidden" behind a painting.  

    While we didn't order from DB Bistro Moderne, any foodie (Daniel Boulud's burger is legendary) will appreciate that they do the room service for the City Club.

    I'd definitely stay here again. It's in Midtown, but far enough away from too much tourist activity to feel quaint.

    New York City hotels have a reputation for small rooms, even at luxury hotels like City Club. That's why I make sure I reserve a certain type of room for my travelers when they stay at the City Club.

    Unfortunately, when they arrived at the hotel, the room type I had reserved and reconfirmed the day prior to arrival was not available. Instead, they were put in much smaller rooms, which measure 195 feet. So, I had several angry phone calls and emails from my travelers, who were pretty pissed off. That makes me pissed off, especially when I've done what I am supposed to do and the vendor does not fulfill their part of the contract.

    I called the hotel and arranged to have them moved into larger rooms for the next night's stay, and fortunately they were able to accommodate them. Apparently they had some sort of "mechanical" issue that necessitated the stay in the smaller rooms.  My email to the manager regarding the situation was promptly returned, with the offer of a complimentary upgrade for our next visit.

    But there won't be a next visit.

    Bye-bye, City Club!

    I loved this hotel. The bed and pillows were incredible and the chocolate chip cookies at night were divine. The rooms are small but you can't beat the price. I will definitely stay here again. The neighborhood is the best. Everything you could want is right at your doorstep. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. This is a keeper!

    I love this place!  Have stayed several times, and each time with a different room.  Each one was cool and eclectic.  Excellent service!  Nice location - across from the Hippodrome parking, and so near the theater district.  It certainly beats the cookie-cutter chain hotels.  If you're going to stay in the City, you're gonna' spend some dough where ever you end up - so, you might as well stay some place that you'll enjoy.

    If price is not on your mind, this hotel is spectacular! Lots of hotels spend thousands on a snazzy lobby but shabby rooms, but City Club Hotel did something out of the ordinary. It's a very simple and small lobby to check-in, just adjacent to an excellent restaurant, but the rooms are elegant and dramatic! Ipod alarm clocks, marble bathrooms, Hermes bath amenities, extremely comfortable beds and a free business computer on the 2nd floor made my stay very enjoyable!

    The lobby is light and airy; in contrast, the rooms are quite dark and masculine, but still comfy. I would not recommend to stay here on business, just because they focused on mood lighting, and not desk work stations. If you want your own quiet corner of NYC just steps away from Times Sq, you need to stay here. The staff were accomodating and helpful.

    Dear City Club Hotel,
    Your reception area has statement modern art and interesting coffee-table books on photography. Check-in was easy and quick. Went upstairs, heard a baby crying in the next room (that's not your fault). Went back downstairs, and your clerks happily switched me to a different room.
    Your bathrooms are spacious, there are fluffy white robes and big mirrors--so I can see my whole outfit and practice my dance moves. Your fridge is hidden behind a painting, as if I'm in the awesome mansion of an eccentric vigilante millionaire. You have an iHome instead of a regular alarm clock.
    Ten minutes after checking in, two smiling ladies knocked at my door and gave me a chewy, delicious, warm chocolate chip cookie.
    I love you, City Club Hotel.

    Found the hotel on Hotels.com . I needed a relatively inexpensive hotel in NYC to spend the night. I was charmed by the hotel. The front desk staff were friendly and fun. The room was cozy and yet still fully appointed. We had everything we needed for our stay. We got upgraded to a room with a terrace which unfortunately we weren't able to enjoy as much as we would have liked as it was February. I will definitely be staying here again.

    I booked this hotel the night before the hubs and I went to NYC.  So we got a pretty good deal on it.  We opted for the queen luxe room instead of the standard 195 ft2 room, which I've read was too small to walk around.  

    ROOM: Our room was cute.  Decent size.  Queen bed, sofa, closet, desk.  The bathroom was large and I agree with other reviewers that they probably could've made the bathroom a bit smaller in order to make more living space, especially if we were in the smaller room.  There was a bidet in the bathroom, which the hubs (of all people, loved).  It had 2 windows, but you looked directly into the next building.  We couldn't tell if it was cloudy or sunny outside.  

    SERVICE: We arrived very early in the morning and our room was not ready, but we left our number with the receptionist who a few hours later, as we were at lunch, called us so we could check in earlier.  That was VERY nice.  They were extremely hospitable.  They left cookies on our bed each night as well as a card for room service and a weather report for the next day.  

    LOCATION:  We took the subway from LGA to the hotel.  It was so easy to get there.  Their MTA is crowded but very efficient.  THe hotel is on a quiet street but only blocks from TSQ, which was great.  It was also near Grand Central Station, where we took a shuttle to the airport when we left for an early flight.  

    Overall, we had a great experience and really enjoyed the hotel.  We would definitely stay there again in the future.

    Online brochure looked nice, great reviews from a few places and seated in the most convenient are of the city to get around. But wait!!

    This was my boyfriend & I's first trip ever to NYC around this time just last year (Nov 2010). I only booked this place two and a half weeks I'm advance BC all the reviews stated it was a 4 star. Boy was I wrong and I'm not one of the pickiest to complain; yet my bf is. Rule of thumb, if the hotel is NOT cleaner than MY house, no damn way am I going to stay there nor give it a good rating.

    For a first timer in NYC you would expect  a decent room on a decent level, wrong! The reception area probably was slightly bigger than the room we stayed in, receptionists were professional but not very welcoming, they gave us a room on the lowest floor possible, our window was next to the building's air conditioning units AND faced the neighboring building's brick wall, framed paper wall hangings were stained from the heat waves' humidity, comforters had a few yellow stains they must have tried to bleach out and lighting was sort of dim (to probably mask ALL that).

    What we did with all that nastiness: my bf sent complaints to reception and requested to speak to the hotel manager to see if we would get any sort of refund or compensation, they straight up said no (twice) BUT offered a reimbursement for the remainder of the weekend we didn't stay there. So we booked a different hotel in a different area.

    All in all, yeah, it almost did ruin our trip and perception of New York but we made the most out of it by sight seeing the rest of the city and eating great food. Would I ever return? No, but maybe if it was on business expense and if I wasn't placed on the lowest floor possible, yeah.

    The City Club Hotel is in a wonderful location in mid town Manhattan. Not directly in the heart of times square, but in the immediate area. What a great location for theater goers who don't want to me in the mayhem, heavily tourist-ed times square mess!

    A boutique hotel by definition, the City Club offers little in the way of first class service. No real doorman, no concierge, no extraordinary staff. That being said, the hotel rooms worked on their own and little was needed. I do recommend the King Luxe as it is an appropriate size for a business travel. Something smaller would likely feel cramped. The bed was comfortable and the sheet thread count was nice. Pillows were nicely selected, fresh and comfortable. The TV (a nice 40 inch Samsung) had great vibrancy and color, but the hotel did not provide an adequate number of channels.

    The work space was quite small and the chair was old and not of office level quality. I also had a major issue with the wifi, but didn't complain so I cant say forsure what the fix would have been. My recommendation would be to air your issues early on the wifi issue to ensure connection.

    The hotel provided a nice iron, ironing board, safe, etc to compliment the overall room. I was pleasantly surprised with a nice sized umbrella, especially as I was there during a rain storm. Umbrellas are not usually offered within the room in the 3-star, boutique style hotels. This was a nice touch!

    The bathrooms were nice and roomy. Shower pressure was good and towels were soft and large. A nice steam was also available in the shower, which is great for freshly unpacked shirts! There was very little in the way of storage area within the bathroom, so this was a weak point. Toilet was well positioned and flushed nicely.

    The big issue of course (as it always is) is the price. What should one pay for the City Club (King Luxe) room? In my honest opinion, for this hotel to stay within my 4-star level rating, I would not pay more than $285 per night. I don't think this hotel is worth more than that and if it was in the area of $400, my recommendation would likely drop a number of stars (say 2.5). It is a solid boutique hotel (better than the Muse Hotel (Kimpton)), but not at the extreme price point noted above.

    Good luck and enjoy NY!!

    Room is nice, but beware. They will try and stick you in a petite room. Way too small. Then they'll try to get you to pay  50 bucks a day for a normal size room and bed. Weird. Staff was mixed...the one dude was definitely an a-holio

    While visiting New York in September 2013 we stayed at the W Hotel. After enjoying our wonderful stay there we decided to extend our visit so we needed another hotel as the W was booked. We ended up at this so called City Club Hotel with overpriced  rooms and windows facing walls 3 feet away and a bathroom window that had to remain shuttered because neighboring buildings overlooked into it.
    While the room was clean and spacious the price was certainly excessive and overrated. Even though our room was pre-paid the charged our credit card $100 "security" "in case we broke something or took something from the mini-bar and failed to report it". This was the insulting explanation the font desk gave  us when we inquired about the charge.
    It took over a week for the hotel to "release" the $100 debit to my account. We are not teenagers that could have been expected to damage the room nor to walk out with unpaid minibar charges, particularly when we walked in with prepaid $2000.00 reservations for three nights. In my opinion the room was worth no more than $300 to $350 per night, particularly if compared with what we paid at The W with a view of the river and New York!!

    So many better choices in the same area for the same price...

    The room was poorly lit, the bed was very uncomfortable, the closet/drawers were nonexistent (so I lived out of my suitcase), there was ZERO room in the bathroom to put even my toothbrush on a counter (again, lived out of my suitcase), the shower water pressure was awful...  And the staff was rude.

    i travel to NY every other week for business and was really excited to stay here, but was disappointed with the reality.  Prime location, and great concept - awful execution.  For the money, go with another option unless you want to live in a shoe box out of your suitcase.  Horrible for business travel.

    I really loved this hotel. After staying in an incredibly noisy and uncomfortable apartment for a few nights in the flower district, this place was such a relief. It was like a cozy little cave, completely quiet and comfortable.

    Yes, the room was small, but that's life in New York. The difference here is that this room was tiny but perfectly formed with an incredibly comfortable king size bed, large screen television and beautiful bathroom with oversized tub. The little details were also great: when we came in for the evening they'd left cookies on the desk, the complimentary toiletries were very high quality, and the wifi (though a bit slow) was complimentary.  I also found the staff to be pleasant and efficient.

    I can't remember the last time I stayed in a hotel I liked quite this much. Highly recommend.

    Pay attention when making a reservation.  For just a few bucks more, get the queen or king room. Worth it.  Close to Times Square, but quiet.  Bed is very comfortable.  Cookies are awesome and not some pre-baked crap. Also, the restaurant in the hotel is part of the Daniel Boland group and is very good for breakfast.

    Buyer beware! The front desk night staff doesn't know the meaning of the phrase prepaid company reservation. They placed a 200 hold on my personal card without alerting me beforehand. The manager on duty was just as "helpful" as the concierge when it came to charging the company card that they clearly have on file.

    The room itself is quite shopworn for this price point. The bathrobes surely were dragged from the Path train before being hung. I'm tempted to see if I can use the cookie to hammer off some of the crud on the tub.

    Perhaps I ought go outside and check that I'm not at the Motel 6. It sure seems that way from here.

    I found City Club Hotel literally while riding into NYC on the Amtrak from Boston. I was visiting a friend who wasn't going to be home from work until after 5 pm. My plan was to wait, but I realized that being up since 5 am, walking around midtown shopping, carrying hoards of bags and feeling gross and only getting to rest my feet after 5 pm was not going to work well for me. So I looked on a whim, and between Yelp and Trip Advisor, this place looked good. Bonus that it was walkable from Penn Station.

    I arrived to the hotel around 11 am, hoping to get an early check in. The counter boy wasn't the friendliest being - which I was surprised by given the way reviewers have raved over their customer service. Anyways, I asked about early check in, only to find they supposedly didn't have any petit rooms (what I booked) available for the night. Uhh, okay. Well that's kind of your problem, not mine. I dismissed the fact and said I don't care what kind of room I get, I just want whatever is available first. I mentioned that I was traveling, I was four months pregnant and without a room, I'd be waiting hours to rest before I met up with my friend. They nonchalantly acknowledged my situation (not very nice!) and said that I could pre-register and when something was available they'd call me. Uggghhh. They mentioned a few other groups before me had "already pre-registered" and that I'd be added to the line. Whatever. I'm not naive, so I pretty much knew this meant they weren't going to let me check in early. Jerks. I hated even more the fact that he felt the need to add: "Oh, you just booked today. Well, good thing you did, just after you booked, a couple more reservations came in and we are sold out for the night." Really? You are a tiny no-name boutique hotel that I booked an hour before showing up. Don't bull shit me. Again - WHATEVER.

    I marched to their lobby bathroom (a single person, unisex) and spent a good 30 minutes putting in my contacts, changing and doing my make-up. This bathroom, I have to admit, was lovely. Spacious, clean and attractive. It was far beyond most hotel lobby bathrooms, which have multiple stalls and an airport feel to them. I was impressed.

    Fast forward to 2:30 pm, when I finally get the call. Wow! Thanks guys - a whole 30 minutes before the actual check in time! And by the time I get there from where I am, it will likely be AFTER check in time that I am in my room. And it was. I got to the hotel at 5 pm, because of course, I was nowhere in the area as I shopped and ate elsewhere.

    Now, you're wondering why, after all I've said so far was bad, how I am giving them four stars?! Well, read on.

    My room was on the 8th floor (out of nine?) so that was nice. Also, I arrived to a room much larger than what I had expected. The bed was a Queen - I had a cushioned sitting bench, a small dresser and even a desk with a chair! The bathroom was fabulously large and appointed with bathrobes and C.O. Bigeloew toiletries. Everything was sparkling clean and didn't smell funky. My room was amazingly quiet. Much of what other reviewers had complained of were not issues for me.

    I settled in and took the best nap of my life. I was awoken by a soft knock on my door - my 6 pm cookies, of course! They weren't "warm" - I don't know where some reviewers got that - but they were a nice touch.

    The icing on the cake came the next morning when I received my bill - the total was only $188. I had booked the petit room on hotels.com at a quote of $250. Clearly, my room had been upgraded, yet the cost was lower! I kept the bill, just in case.

    So in the end, given the condition and appearance of the hotel, the upgrade, the decreased cost and the quality of my stay, City Club still earned a four star review from me; even with the crabby concierge. I will add, that the evening concierge was a lady who was far superior to the first gentleman in both manner and attitude.

    I believe I would easily stay again, much of this due to the central location of the hotel, the nature of the hotel (small scale, clean, attractively appointed, intimate, not crowded, tucked away off a main street) and the fact that I was upgraded at a decreased cost (not that you'd expect that every time). I would recommend it to anyone looking for a "just enough" place to rest your weary head in the midtown area.

    City Club is a small boutique hotel located conveniently in midtown between 5th and 6th street.  I stayed for 5 nights in a petite room (195 sq ft) for work.

    This is probably the smallest room I have ever had and moreover, the padding on my mattress keeps falling off the bed.  The bathroom is small but clean and the shampoo and conditioner are from C.O. bigalow which is awesome.  There is also a bidet!!

    There is no desk, so if you want to do anything else sitting down, you end up doing it on your bed.  The closet also serves as a dual purpose and houses a bunch of liquor.  Unfortunately, I didn't have a fridge in my room; and as I learned when I was checking out, my room was the ONLY one that didn't have a one. (Rm 409) Be warned!

    Otherwise, the staff were nice and kind.  The small bistro next door is posh and ridiculous.  Probably would not chose to stay here again, was seriously getting claustrophobic in the room.

    City Club is right off of 5th Avenue and walking distance from all the main New York attractions.  

    Walked to Times Square and Moma from the hotel....and this coming from a stilletto-loving girl who normally drives everywhere!

    After reading all the yelp reviews of how small the rooms were, I was pleasantly surprised.  I was definitely expecting a "match-box" sized hotel room, but it's very decent, and stylishly decorated.  The bathroom was a good size too.

    Wouldn't mind staying here again.

    2.5 stars.  My wife and I really wanted to love this hotel.  It's in a good location and is certainly nice enough.  The service was good, if not particularly noteworthy (that's a good thing)  After a big snow damaged the roof and made our room suddenly unavailable, CC took very good care of us and even upgraded us to a suite for the second night of our stay.  On the surface, the room was AMAZING (again, this was a suite) and the upgrade exceeded our expectations.  However, within seconds of entering our room, we could hear voices very plainly....at first, I thought the cleaning crew was still in the room or the radio was on or something.  Nope, it was the family in the room next door, and we could hear them clear as day.  Of course, it didn't help that they were pretty much the loudest, most obnoxious family on earth, but the paper thin walls ensured that my wife and I got to hear every movement and conversation in their room.  In the morning, we ended up having to call their room and ask them to quiet their screaming kids....we could also hear every sound in the hallway, as well as the cleaning crew in the room on the side opposite the annoying family.  The only thing that made this bearable was that we were out most of the first day and night, so the family was asleep by the time we returned to our room.  But in the morning, we were awakened first thing in the morning by the aforementioned wailing child.

    I think part of the problem was that the suites seemed to be separated by thin doors, probably to facilitate multi-suite rentals...so maybe the problem is not so bad in the regular rooms.  But unfortunately, this experience really soured me on the CC, and I wouldn't stay there again.

    After having a terrible experience at a Times Square hotel (The Millford - stay away!), this hotel felt like an awesome upgrade.

    This is one of those places where it seems every detail has been considered, and you feel like you have entered a calm, spa-like zone in the middle of NYC craziness.  The room was nicely designed and very comfy, the service was top notch yet casual, and the location was great too -

    I would highly recommend this hotel and hope I get the chance to stay here again.

    AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!

    My wife and I wanted to go to NYC for our first time so I looked at this hotel after reading some great reviews.

    I found an online price and then called the hotel and asked what their price was. The online price through another website was cheaper and after telling her that she recommended I buy through them. She also informed me that their is a parking garage literally right across the street from them so parking wouldn't be a problem at all since we drive up to NY from NC.

    When we arrived, one of the staff was there to open the door for us to their lobby and we were greeted by some of the nicest staff I have ever encountered at any establishment. Check-In was perfect and we were complimentary upgraded from the Petit room to a Queen room!

    The staff told us it would be about a 10 minute wait since we were checking in about 2 hours earlier than check in time but they didn't bat an eye. Sure enough 10 minutes later the staff greeted us in the waiting area on the second floor with our keys and wifi info.

    Once we stepped into our room I was extremely impressed! Our room looked and smelled amazing! The style of the room was sophisticated but simple at the same time. The air conditioning was incredible, especially since it was humid and hot outside. The bathroom was spotless and beyond impressive. Beautiful sink, bidet (which I had never used before but was an awesome addition) and toilet. The shower was superb given the options to change the pressure and temperature (great fixture). Above the sink was a pocket shelf in the wall great for holding toiletries and the room of course came with CO Bigelow lotion, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and hand soap (big hit with the wife).

    Inside the closet was a safe and mini fridge fully stocked with soda, juice, and water and on the shelves above were many snacks and alcohol for your liking (have to pay for of course).

    The biggest perk of this hotel by far is the location. The hotel is 2 blocks away from time square, literally a 2 minute walk. You will not have to worry about not having anywhere to go for food or entertainment because everything is right within your fingertips at this location.

    Also, a lot of other reviews have mentioned 6 P.M. cookies. We were crashed out in our room during that time taking a break and I heard the housekeeping knock and I told them we were ok. Later that night I asked if it was possible to try these legendary cookies. 2 minutes later one of the staff happily came to our room on the 6th floor with 3 delicious cookies on a plate for my wife and I.

    Waking up the next day we found a newspaper in a bag on the doorknob outside all the rooms which is also another addition to the small details they never failed to get right.

    And I won't forget to mention calling down to the lobby at midnight asking if they could assist me in buying Circle-Line cruise tickets for the next day and they assisted and offered to print out the tickets which I was extremely happy they could do for me. I emailed the tickets down to them and later that day, my tickets were waiting for me at the front desk in a City Club Hotel envelope with my name on it.

    It's all about attention to detail and City Club Hotel was beyond anything I would have expected. I give my highest recommendation to anyone visiting New York to stay here and experience for yourself. Obviously if you are looking for an enormous hotel room than you might want to think about visiting another city but if you don't mind a small room (this is NY) than City Club Hotel is my #1 choice for any and all future visits.

    Let's get the downside out of the way: tiny rooms.  If you're not used to midtown, it'll come as a surprise. (the view of the air shaft was funny and reminded me of the London scene in "European Vacation")
    No gym nearby that has convenient hours for the business trip

    Okay, now that's out of the way, it's a great place for business stay.
    Comfortable.  quiet.  fantastic location.

    staff was friendly.  room was spotless.

    good coffee shop across the street that opens at a reasonable hour so you can grab a cup and go.

    Just remember, it's Midtown - prices and sizes scaled appropriately!  With that in mind, this is a great place for your business trip to the Big Apple

    The hotel was very nice.  The rooms were modern looking and the beds were comfy.
    There was a mini bar hidden away inside the closet with enough liquor in it to kill somebody.

    Our room was on the second floor looked out into the street.  There was no problems with street noise.  Just a few crazy honking taxis in the morning to remind me that yes... i am in NYC.

    The best feature of the room was the awesome shower and full wall mirror in the bathroom so you can watch yourself take a dump.  

    I would defiantly stay here again.  Great location.

    A group of friends and I stayed here recently and it was one of the nicest experiences I've ever had at a hotel. I could not honestly name any cons so I'll point out all the positives.

    - There is a parking garage located right across from the hotel.
    - The staff was friendly and welcoming at all times, brought ice to our room when we needed it and there were cookies waiting for us everyday at 6 that were delicious.
    - We stayed in the Duplex Suite and it was amazing! I've never had a room with two stories before, let alone such a giant room in NY.
    -The bed was comfortable and the room was super clean.
    - The location is perfect, just a minute or two from Times Square and located in the heart of Broadway.

    I would most definitely stay here again in the future and look forward to coming back.

    Great location.  Great service.  Clean. Comfy beds. Good sized room.  It is very close to all of the attractions and rooms are quiet to allow you to get a good nights rest. Would definitely stay here again

    You're paying for the location. 2 blocks from time square. The petite room was no joke "PETITE"! I am 5'7" and my feet hung off the bed that barely fit in the room. The front desk is nicely staffed, but do be aware of no space to walk around the room, let alone to place your bags.

    Stayed here during a recent business trip.  Great, affordable little boutique hotel in heart of midtown.  I took the advice of others on trip advisor and requested a room away from the elevator.  I was impressed by how quiet my room was - I heard nothing outside and I think I heard another guest enter their room once.  Clean and comfortable.  Modern amenities.  Excellent service.  Norbert W really nailed it on the head with his review - great location, perfect for business travelers.  I have clients around the corner and will not hesitate to stay here again.

    I enjoyed my stay here. The staff was really great. The rooms were clean, modern and very comfortable. Great central location and the price was very affordable. I will stay here again.

    Excellent service and very comfortable room. Perfect location too if you're planning on seeing shows and soaking in the lights of Times Square.

    Disclaimer, we got this hotel through hotwire at a very good rate ~$150 a night.

    We arrived quite early (around 10AM), dropped off our bags at the hotel, and asked them if we could check in any earlier than 3PM? The response was a cold no. Almost all other hotels I have ever checked in allowed for earlier check-in. However, we looked around the area and came back around 2PM and they did let us into our room.

    When we got to our room we realized the room was far too small. There was no space to put down the suitcases (they would either block the door, or block the bed). I am pretty sure Shaq wouldn't be able to fit in this room, literally, he would be able to touch both walls at the same time. Upon looking at the floor plan it looked like we had the smallest room on the floor, so maybe this would not be an issue for a group of more than 2 people.

    The bed was too soft and warm. We would wake up sweating and upon sitting on the edge you were at risk of falling. Also there is no fan in the washroom so you had to be careful to keep the door closed to make sure your business was not smelling up the room.

    The room was clean, and the staff are nice. The TV doesn't have any programming (we missed some of the 2014 FIFA games because of this). The location is good, just a bit hard to find at first.

    Internet has been out since the day we got here. They were kind enough to provide us with the internet of the hotel beside them Iroquois, but the connection was very weak and choppy.

    All in all if the room was bigger, the internet was there, and they were a bit more flexible with their checkin time, I would have given them a 3 star rating (maybe even a 3.5), but they weren't, and Shaq would be unhappy.

    Perfect place with just enough elegance. They offer you a complementary cookie the moment you walk into your room on the bed. So sweet! I also like the bigelow products they offer you, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, shower gel . The room was spacious enough for two people.(rm 704) and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Conveniently located near many trains as well. Would definitely come back for the ambiance.

    The City Club has been my preferred NYC hotel for the past year or so when I travel for business. The location near Times Square is top notch, and this hotel is located on "Club Row" with the Harvard, Penn, and NY Yacht Clubs all right there. There are also a bunch of hotels on this block, and the City Club is pretty unassuming from the outside with an inconspicuous entryway that leads in to the petite lobby. The front desk staff is incredibly helpful and kind. Seriously - so welcoming and they always make a point to welcome me back and make me feel known. I also love that there is almost always a candle lit; it really gives the lobby a cozy and welcoming vibe.

    The hotel itself is nine floors and, while the lobby doesn't have much space for lounging or a brief sit down, there is a small area on the second floor with some tables and chairs that can be convenient if you're looking for an early check-in and may only have a short wait. Floor three is where the three Grand Duplex Suites are located. I was upgraded to one once (thank you, hotel gods!) and I literally laughed out loud upon walking in to the room at my luck. Two floors, 1.5 baths, 20 foot ceilings with ornate molding, and a small front balcony overlooking the street. I kid you not, at 750 sq. ft. this hotel room was larger than my first apartment. I found myself wracking my brain at who I could facetime with to show this magnificent jewel of a room, and in midtown no less!

    More commonly I stay in the Queen size rooms which are perfectly respectable in their own right. They aren't quite as fancy or spacious at ~300 sq. ft., but they do the job. The bathrooms of these rooms are also surprisingly spacious and every room has a nice, large sink and built-in nooks above the sink which can be great for stashing your personal toiletries and for swiping the C.O. Bigelow products that are there for the (every time I visit) taking. On my last trip, I stayed in a queen room on the 9th floor which had a terrific spacious terrace furnished with a small table and chairs for relaxing.

    Plus, fresh blooms in your room, a free NYT in the morning, and a gooey chocolate chip and butterscotch cookie before bed are just the icing on the cake for me. Details are tended to at the City Club, and to me, that makes it a winning hotel.

    4 star room and service, excellent C.O.Bigelow toiletries, the front desk is outstandingly helpful.
    5 stars for the warm chocolate chip cookie on the bed.

    2 stars for the pathetic breakfast; yes there's a voucher for free breakfast, but it only entails one to either a parfait, fruit, OR a pastry. Yes, one single piece. Plus, didn't realize the breakfast ended at 10am. Disappointing for sure.

    We enjoyed our stay at City Club Hotel. The staff were all extremely friendly, and very helpful as they always had someone standing at the door ready to help you by opening the door or providing directions to wherever you wanted to go. Our room was nice and clean, and the maid did a good job cleaning each day. The one complaint we had was that they did not give us enough toilet paper. We had 5 adults staying in our room and a couple rolls was just not cutting it. We had to ask for more toilet paper a couple different times. And same situation for towels and wash cloths. We never had enough towels to shower each day or wash our faces. We had to keep asking for more towels. If there are 5 adults staying in a room, why wouldn't you put 5 towels and 5 wash cloths in there?? Anyway, aside from that we enjoyed our stay and would recommend City Club. It was within walking distance of Times Square and lots of food places. Perfect location!
