Expert review of City Club Hotel

An insiders' secret tucked away behind Times Square.

This small property right across the street from the Royalton Hotel is one of New York’s best kept secrets as far as I am concerned: a charming little hideaway that barely publicizes itself - and that’s exactly what I like about it. The owner has taken a landmark men’s club and transformed it into a chic and comfortable property that’s stylish without being ridiculously trendy.

Location: 

On West 44th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, the City Club is a short walk to Times Square, Bryant Park and the shopping of Fifth Avenue but I like that it feels a bit away from the fray of Broadway.

Bedrooms: 

Made up of 65 rooms and suites the extremely small but still cozy quarters feel gentlemanly with their dark woods, sparse furnishings and televisions hidden behind two-way mirrors. The Frette sheets are particularly comfy and I like the at-home touches like the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies left at turndown. The room service menu is also excellent and rooms come with free WiFi and a DVD player. Ask for a higher floor to avoid ambient sound from the restaurant and for a view as many rooms face a brick wall.

Public areas: 

There is no formal lobby which creates this more residential atmosphere but some may miss the ability to work in a bigger space other than one's room.

Eating and drinking: 

The excellent if pricy Daniel Boulud restaurant is one of the best eateries in the neighborhood and many media people on an expense account come here for power business lunches. Try the decadent burger with short rib, it's a city foodie must.

Leisure facilities: 

There aren’t a lot of amenities on site and that can be a drawback - there is no gym, for example, but the front desk can you provide you with a free pass for one down the block. 

Service: 

A bit hit and miss according to friends who have recently stayed.
