The Jewel facing Rockefeller Center

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2014

We stayed at the jewel in mid November.. It is perfectly located for many different activities. The rooms are small, but so well thought out and space is used so well that it was not an issue. the staff is friendly and helpful.and the amenities make it a very comfortable place to stay it.
we did think the reception area a little strange - for the receptionist to use the computer to check you in she had to turn her back and anyone could read the computer over her shoulder. There was no stool for her to sit on and it just seemed poorly set up

I echo the sentiments of the many reviewers that have stated "best price for the location" as staying across from Rockefeller Center smack dab in the middle of midtown puts you in excellent proximity to everything. Even though it was a little bit touristy, I enjoyed having breakfast watching the skaters on Rockefeller Center as they were putting up the tree in November. (There is a cafe in the mall with window seating looking right onto the ice.) As for the room, I would have MUCH preferred a view of the Rockefeller Center but I got a room in the back. It was on a top floor, which meant it was quiet but I should have called in advance and begged for a nicer view. In any event, for the price and location I would come back and the staff is nice. The second floor has complimentary espresso and there is comp. water and wifi on every floor. Thanks for reading. Enjoy the Big Apple.

Room Tip: Try to get a view of the street, not the back like I had

We spent one night in this small quite hotel that is right near Rockefeller Center. The room was on a smaller side but very modern and clean. Check in/out was very quick. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area.

Intentionally tried 3 different hotels in NYC over the past month and the Jewel was my favourite. Yes the rooms are small but adequate. It has pleasant decor and a great little lounge room and business centre to meet other travellers and share experiences. My room was at the back so no view but very quiet. Really loved the fact that they provide a guest laundry. As for location, it was perfect. Rockefeller Center was across the street, easy walk to Broadway and shopping. Staff were always cheerful and helpful. Definitely would come back for another stay at the Jewel.

A very clean, quiet hotel in the most perfect location across the street from Rockefeller Center and Radio City Music Hall. The staff was friendly, the elevator was fast, and although the room was fairly small (like most NYC hotels) it was very functional (even with our two giant suitcases). We enjoyed the fast, free internet and the filtered (free) bottled water service. I would definitely stay here again. A nice walk to Broadway shows or Central Park, and of course LOTS of shopping and restaurants nearby. And when our friends had some issues with their room, the hotel recovered nicely by sending them wine and free breakfast certificates! Good customer service.
