Nice central hotel - only one area for improvement
Pros:Facility, very clean, central, nice sophisticated neighborhood. Walking distance to less crowded shops
Cons:Reception and customer loyalty
This is our third visit at the Morgan. It is in Chelsea, a very nice neighborhood and walking distance to pretty much all the major sights. The rooms are actually more spacious than for instance the more expensive 60 Thompson, but the bathrooms are still tiny, but that's NYC.
There is no room service or restaurant but free continental breakfast is served at Reserve which is a nice lounge area. We don't mind the fact there is no restaurant.
One major improvement would be customer service. During my first visit, the woman with short bleach hair acted as if I was staying at the Paris Ritz Carlton. I just rolled my eyes (Girl please!). The last two visit, the reception was courteous but you never felt they were welcoming. They never asked whether we stayed there before. And when I asked whether the hotel had other rooms available, I did not dare asking for a higher floor or an upgrade. They say 10% of customer is new and 90% repeat and easier to loose a customer 200% times harder to gain one. Well, I just feel that the Morgan group needs to consider this more. One staff that stood out was Israel the porter, he was such a gentleman and you felt he went beyond his line of duty. The staff in the breakfast area are also very pleasant.
We usually stayed in Soho in the past 20 years on our quarterly visits to NYC. But we are now looking for somewhere quieter, with less crowded shops and Chelsea works for us. But we are not sure if Morgan will be our new "place to go"

4 out of 5
Pros:Location, breakfast, staff.
Cons:Light and decor of hallways.
Location:You can walk to attractions like the MOMA.
Morgan's may be just a bit past its NYC boutique hotel prime, but it's solid and I enjoyed my stay there. It's clean, the staff was helpful and the complimentary continental breakfast is above average. It's got a cool hip looking bar ---- only myself and two other people were there at 8 on a Friday night---but I had a super friendly waitstaff person who helped me find somewhere nearby to eat. The room temperature can be controlled and I had a very quiet room. The hotel has a minimalist decor and great bath products. (I took the opportunity to go across the street to The Morgan Museum and Library---worth a visit!!) The only thing that might bother some is the tired, very dark look of the hallways. In this case I think it all depends what you pay and I did get a good rate. There is no sign on the exterior so it can be hard to find.
