I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while attending a conference in NYC. At more than $400 a night, even in NYC, you have a right to some pretty high expectations and the Lombardy failed to meet most of those. First the pluses. My room was a good size for NYC and adequately furnished. The hotel is also very... More

As other reviews on here have stated, this hotel is not "traditional" in that these are privately owned condos, and when the owners are not using them - they are sold out as hotel rooms. For us, this worked beautifully as we searched high & low to find a larger room in NYC with 2 double or queen beds. That... More

First point; this is not a traditional hotel. The rooms are owned by individuals that obviously use this property as a pied-à-terre for when they come to Manhattan and hand them over to an 'administration' (masquerading as hotel staff) as hotel rooms when empty. A good business idea but this one doesn't work. It is apparent that each owner can... More

Friendly service and an excellent location close to Central Park and Museum Mile. Coffee and croissants available next door are very good indeed. Only issue I had was that the shower was so powerful the bathroom floor became flooded, but no big deal.

Great location - roomy rooms and suites - and always a little kitchenette, which is a nice addition, particularly for a longer stay. A few reviewers have grumbled about their rooms -- if you don't like your room -- (there's a great range of styles and quality, as they are virtually all privately owned) -- ask to see another! If...

Excellent location - especially for midtown business, shopping, including auction houses. Rooms are huge - premium for NYC. The lobby is peaceful unlike a typical hotel. The staff are quiet and helpful. Room decor was relatively old - like a person past his/her prime. Prices aren't cheap either. However, any hotel in NYC requires a traveler to make some compromise...

This was my second time at the Lombardy. I stayed for 10 days and again, loved it. The room (507) was very spacious and had a kitchenette. It was very quiet.

This historic Manhattan Hotel is actually a combination of hotel and privately owned co-op apartments. It was built by Randolf Hearst in the twenties as a residence for a lady friend - interesting past! The hotel has a combination of old style and new style rooms- new style rooms with kitchenettes. We found it quiet, comfortable and a perfect launching... More

We were upgraded to a suite (908) for our 6 night stay and loved it. So much space, and the bed was huge and comfortable. Yes, the aircon struggled to keep the suite cool, and it was humid at night, but having a working kitchenette to have a couple of meals at home was great. The free breakfast was meagre,... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
