8.0.Very good.
  • 4.0.Fair

    Information (time and place for breakfast and other useful info) is supposed to be given to guests by staff when they check in sadly the girl who checked us in did not tell us any of this resulting in us missing breakfast first morning and we new nothing of the free all day coffee or wine hour until we over heard another guest being checked in as we were waiting for our ride to the airport as we were leaving. Literature with all this info on in the rooms would be a massive help to guests instead of relying on staff who for the most part were not helpful at all and not welcoming or friendly. Robes and slippers missing from room took 3 phone calls to finally get them and breakfast was so haphazard it was a joke, one guest waited over 15 minutes just for some butter for their toast !! things were not topped up in a timely fashion or just not replaced at all, my advice would be don't waste money paying extra for this better to eat breakfast some place else instead. very disappointed .

    A great team

    The difference between a good hotel and great one is the way they deal with any minor issues you have. 48Lex team were super helpful and always at hand to resolve any questions or minor problems

    Can’t fault this hotel, it’s the perfect location close enough to everything but far enough for some space. Our room was huge, with the most incredible floor to ceiling windows! Room service is was some of the best we’ve ever had - it’s from the restaurant downstairs and was delicious. Huge thank you to the staff who made our stay so welcoming!

    Excellent hotel, just read a the small print

    Perfectly placed for NYC Manhattan. Really helpful staff, just read the small print. There is an extra $60 per night, which is reasonable when you find out it’s for breakfast, WiFi, gym and wine and cheese on an evening.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It just didn’t match up

    I expected too much aa a result of the website advertising. Unfortunately during this trip I continually felt that this experience was not true value for money and it left me continually looking out of the window wishing I’d chosen another hotel. Little things let it down e.g. the 1st impression from checking in (is it a check-in desk?), having to request robes 4 times and waited over 4 hours, the poor quality toiletries, a breakfast bar that leaves you less than impressed and lastly the extra $60 (plus tax!) per night charges that leave you asking ‘why?’ This hotel wants to impress but sadly misses this by a long way and leaves guests somewhat confused.

    Nice and friendly Guest Services

    Nice, friendly comfortable clean. Probably most of the hotels took some losses during COVID they just need to make a few repairs, but of all the hotels this is the best so far.

  • 6.0.Good

    Quiet but some maintenence needed.

    The room is nicely designed and very quiet, but the function was difficult for me. The big sliding barn door for the bathroom is so heavy that I honestly couldn't shut the door on my own. I had to have my boyfriend open and shut the door for me everytime I showered or used the loo. The shower door was also very difficult to open and close. I had to put all of my weight onto the door to open and shut the shower. Overall the hotel is nice and in a quiet part of town, close to transit, and fairly central. The bed was very comfortable as well.

    Nothing Like The Photos

    I booked the most expensive room on the app and I still didn’t get the room it showed in the photos. I understand room types may vary but I would think the most expensive would’ve been the nicest. I got a room on the 4th floor with a terrace yes, but not with the greatest view. The photos shown aren’t up to par with what was a booked. I expected better, especially when paying $400+.
