Guest reviews for The Kitano Hotel New York

Everyone (3) Couples (1)
5 out of 5
Pros: Nice, clean, safe, convenient to many sights.
Cons: Ice is available only if you request and have it delivered to your room (tipping).
Location: Empire State Building, Grand Central Station
I paid for 3 rooms but 2 of my colleagues had to cancel 3 days before our arrival. I lost the money paid for those 2 rooms. Other than that, the experience was good. Staff was very prompt and courteous. $30 + tax/tip = $37 was overpriced for the breakfast. There was only one plug on the wall behind the headboard, and both were taken up by the night lamp and clock. I needed an outlet for my CPAP machine, which could not be plugged in on the other side of the room. I figured it out, though.

Incredibly accommodating staff

Everything about the Kitano was perfect. And the staff could not do enough for us. All requests were filled immediately.

Only ok

Pros: Close restaurants
I arrived early (12p) and they only had a smoking room available which they assured didnt smell. Of course it did though. It was also quite woarm and the a/c was giving difficulty. However, its a great location very close to transportation. Nice views also.

Good hotel for the price.

Conveniently located

Pros: Quiet
The room was very nicely decorated, extremely clean and comfortable. Although small, it was more than adequate for NYC standards. It was conveniently located, within walking distance from Grand Central Station. The staff and service was excellent.

A joke

This four star experience provides two star service. When I checked in, I was told that my room was upgraded but I'd be above the jazz bar. I told them this wasn't acceptable and I just wanted the type of room that I had book; they said this would be difficult but found another upgraded room on the 8th floor. The room smelled like smoke, but they insisted that it was a no smoking room. I pointed out that there was an ashtray and hotel-provided matches on the desk. They moved me to another room and called to make sure everything was all right with this, my third, room. I told them that it was and then was told how difficult it was to change rooms around for guests - as though it was somehow my fault they didn't give me the type of room I reserved and paid for originally.

Only OK...

Was able to check in at 1p, however was for a smoking floor, which smelled very much like a smoking floor. Front desk staff treated me like they were doing me a favor. The a/c in the room was not working (I didnt call since I didnt want the technicians in my hotel room for my stay/ I reported at checkout for next guest to hopefully have it working). Overall, the size and comfort of the room would have been great if the a/c had been working and the room had not had such a strong cigarette odor. If they tell you the smoking floor wont smell, dont believe it! Location was nice, but not the best NYC experience I've had so far....

Excellent Room, but...

The room was spacious and comfortable, the staff was very attentive, and the location was excellent. However, when I received my final bill the following week, I found that the hotel charged me for the two $5.00 bottles of Fiji Water they leave in the room, even though I did not open either bottle during my stay. My complaint to the hotel concerning this charge has gone unanswered. The amount in question is only $12.46, but it's the principle that counts, and for that reason I will not stay there again.
