This was my second stay at Hotel Emblem and I'm pleased that the exceptional experience of my first stay was repeated. It is a relief to find a fashionable, affordable and friendly boutique hotel that is truly safe during a pandemic stay. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome, greeting you with a cocktail. The rooms are modern, luxurious, quiet and spotless. The decor is clever with treats everywhere you gaze. Bonus features include the built-in bedside USB ports and the hallway water bottle filler. My room overlooked a serene wooded interior courtyard. I plan to return soon. If you're driving from out of town, Hotel Emblem has partnered with the nearby Westin St Francis to offer a surprisingly low overnight parking rate.

Finding the front door was very difficult but the staff was happy to help my vision was coming and going when I checked in because of third nerve palsy and the staff did not understand and I was mostly blind the staff could’ve been more accommodating and helpful to me

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Emblem during the difficult COVID time in January 2021. We very much enjoyed our stay. The staff was very courteous as we had a late check-in. As to cleaning, I understand the hotel has a very strict policy. Before a new guest checks-in, they not only wait 24-48 hours to enter the room after a stay, but they install a blue light to help sanitize the room before it’s entered for a thorough cleaning. In addition, the person that checked us in said he is required to get a weekly COVID test to protect himself and guests. I would stay here again as it’s very close to Union Square, Chinatown, restaurants and shopping.

The staff provided excellent customer service during our stay. Truly made us feel at home!

The entire hotel is exceptionally clean and well kept. All details up to date and modern. Our room was adorable! It had a lot of little touches that made me appreciate it even more like the black make up towel and the expresso machine.

The neighborhood was nice too. We felt safe during the day and after dark waking around. We’d stay there again for sure.

I really loved the interior design of the hotel, especially the touch of poetry scattered throughout the property. Also, the obscure yet and unorthodox amenities was a nice touch. For example, there was a typewriter and a good amount of fun reading material in my room. Also, I loved the bathroom amenities.
The front desk (Patrick) was super friendly and always wanted to help. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.
