A very bad experience

I stayed at the Lexington hotel for one night and way happy to leave. While furnishing a grand lobby and an impressive front the hotel is clearly in a very bad state. At my room I was greeted with cherry tomatoes the previous guest had left, extremely dusty bed covers (don’t they clean those?) and a radiator which was placed in front of the toilet in such a way that I couldn't sit properly. The heavy curtains keep out the morning sun but since the bathroom door is opaque glass you wake up at dawn which means the hotel failed in important job it has, a good night sleep. During checkout I told the front desk of my grievances but was informed that apart from the leftover vegetables they were aware of these problems. The understanding that the hotel truly doesn't care changed the experience from a simple oversight into negligence. This review is to inform you so you may make an informed decision before booking here.

Great boutique hotel in Midtown

We stayed at The Lexington between Christmas and New Year's Eve. It's a great boutique hotel with a jazz/art deco motif. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff was pleasant and accommodating. It's in a great location, only a few blocks from Grand Central and a few blocks from 5th Ave.

NY on Holiday

Came to city for wedding. Hotel conveniently located for many attractions. Staff was not very friendly or welcoming. Holiday time, large crowds, everyone rushed, long lines. Concierge spent long time with one guest, then said she couldn't make phone call for us because she might be on hold and there was a line behind us. She did do it, reluctantly. Everything very expensive but expected for NYC. probably more so during holidays. We would stay in this hotel again
