A Pig with a Wig

Pros: Location
Cons: They need a total change in culture.
Location: Good location to time square
There are much better hotels in NYC for the same price or less. This hotel does not even get close to what a modern hotel should deliver at the price. No business center, no A/C in the rooms. Room service is limited to some special restrictions. The customer service aspect of this place should make up for some of there short comings but give them a chance and yes they will disappoint you. I have stayed at 3 other Kimpton propertys and never had such a bad stay.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience. I am surprised and disappointed that you did not enjoy your time at our property. Our property recently underwent renovations to improve the look and feel for our guests. The staff here love what they do and where they work as you can see in almost all reviews written about our service. I greatly apologize that you did not have a good stay. I hope you will stay with us again in the future to allow us to change your opinion of our property.

We highly recommend the Muse.

Pros: Location, location, location. Great bathroom.
Cons: Concierge sent us to a place we didn't like at all the first night. It was all done rather quickly.
Location: All of the Broadway shows are very nearby. Lots of reasonable restaurants are nearby. Radio City Music Hall, MOMA, Rockefeller Center all near.
The Muse is in a great location. The rooms have been recently renovated. The bathroom is the nicest bathroom we've stayed in. The restaurant, Nios, isn't a full service restaurant and is closed on Sunday after breakfast. This is unfortunate. The other thing we warn the Travelocity member about is that if you book on Travelocity you do not receive Kimpton Karma rewards. We did not realize this and were really bummed out because we stayed 7 days. Kimpton said if you call them they will match the price you see on Travelocity or other websites. I wish we had done this.

Great value

The Muse exceeded my expectations. I checked in and was offered a free glass of wine. The decor was modern and to date. The room was clean and decorated nicely. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was a plus as it was at the heart of time square and convenient to many popular areas.

Pros: The staff and the breakfast
Cons: Add more comfortable seats to the lobby and, of course, get the restaurant and bar done. Lower the prices for the smaller rooms.
The hotel restaurant was under renovation, unbeknownst to me before I got there and so the lobby was noisy, and the people at the front desk had to be shouted at to be heard. They did serve free wine in the lobby each evening and you could sit there on bench seating, which was neither cozy nor comfortable. Meanwhile the room, though newly renovated, was much smaller than what was represented in the website photo for a single. The best thing about The Muse was the friendly staff and the buffet breakfast included in the room fee. All in all it was not worth the price paid.

Great room but elevator noise!

The room where I stayed with very spacious and well appointed. Unfortunately the floors are small and there are not many rooms located on each floor. The elevator noise was evident all night long. So what first appeared that it was going to be a wonderful experience turned out to be not very restful...

Outstanding value and large rooms in Midtown

My new favorite hotel in Manhattan. Very professional staff, with personal touches in service. Perfect location from which to explore Midtown and beyond. Just a block from Times Square, but reasonably quiet. Loved it, and will definitely be back.
