business in New York

I would stay at this hotel again. The room was smallish but it had everything that I needed to be comfortable. There was a Starbucks on the main floor so it was convenient in the morning to get out there and get going. It was close to everything that I needed within walking distance. I thought it was a good value.

Wonderful jazzy place

My wife and I wanted a weekend getaway in the city, and chose the Lexington for it's proximity to the Theater District. The Jazz-age elements of the hotel struck us immediately—the architecture, decor and artwork. It was like stepping into another world, a New York of a bygone glorious era. Our room was cozy and we had a great stay. The prices were reasonable, too. Highly recommended!

Love it!

For the price we paid, this is a very good deal. We love the hotel room. It is very comfortable. We did not want to get up in the morning because the bed was too comfortable! The room decoration is very modern. We will come back again! We highly recommended this place.

Dining tip: In Hotel

One downfall is the price of breakfast at the Raffle Bistro at the hotel. We paid $55 for a regular simple breakfast! We ordered Belgium Waffle, but we got regular waffles. My husband ordered sunny side-up eggs, but they were too busy to prepare it for him. When we saw the price of the breakfast, my mouth dropped. Other than the Bistro, this is an excellent hotel with a very good price.

big noise next door

There was big noise next door, sounds like emplyees (maintaince or housekeepers) were in a room lauging and listening music loud. Then one of the emplyee just opened my door with their key, I was shocked and I was in bathroom at this moment, and I said excuse me? and the guy just said "oh never mind" and he closed the door. I'm not coming back to this hotel.
