The Jewel was excellent. Although the first night they put us in another hotel next door because they didn't have a room at the Jewel. The room was real small and older. The AC unit did not work well and made a beeping sound all night keeping us awake. Long night.

A must stay!!

Pros: Rene is the best. So kind and helpful.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: The location is within walking distance to everything.
Rene and this hotel truly live up to the name. The hotel is a little "Jewel" in the concrete jungle. Can't say enough about how wonderful my time was. Matter of fact, it was so enjoyable i stayed another night. Thank you all.

Nice hotel.

Pros: The staff was very helpful and friendly.
Cons: The TV did not work, and the sheets were very synthetic and uncomfortable.
Location: This hotel is very convenient for people visiting Rockefeller Center.
Convenient, clean hotel. Blah, blah, blah (Travelocity apparently doesn't like brevity...)

Nice hotel with convenient location

Pros: We felt safe with the security measures the hotel has in place. The water bottle service was excellent plus we enjoyed the platters of goodies.
Cons: the furniture needed dusting plus more thorough vacuuming needed. Replenish toiletry supplies daily
Location: same as above
We had a very enjoyable time during our week long stay at this hotel. We had quick and easy access to Rockefeller Center, Theater District, Times Square, St Patrick's Cathedral, Subway system, restaurants and shopping establishments. We would definitely return to this location.
