Excellent hotel
Fabulous hotel. Rooms very comfortable and bar and restaurants great. Staff are very attentive & helpful. Ideally located.
LOUISE, gb4 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Nearly ....
First initial thoughts when we walked in was that it was rather pleasant . Then you started to look around and you can see that the hotel is starting to age . Tried to use the rooftop bar but was so busy couldn’t get a drink let alone a table . Don’t remember seeing the lobby bar open couldn’t get a daytime drink in there . No complementary drinking water in the room which I thought would be standard in a hotel of this calibre . For two guys sharing the double double the three tiny bottles of toiletries lasted the one shower on arrival nothing for the next three nights we were there .On the plus side I would say room was very spacious and probably one of the most comfortable beds ever . Lady on reception was very pleasant and absolutely gorgeous on check out . Overall hotel nearly has it but could improve on some finishing touches . Would expect more for my money .

An absolute gem!
This was our third stay st the Refinery and it was just as fabulous as our last two stays. The hotel is perfectly located for shopping, sightseeing, theatre etc. The hotel is lovely and from the moment you enter, nothing is too much trouble. Daily wine hour is a lovely touch and the rooftop bar gives you unparalleled views of the Empire State Building.

Fair 4.0
terrible service, far too expensive, over priced
Hotel is great location, however we found the rooms to be very small, the reception when we checked in gave us no information and was very quick to get rid of us, no coffee or tea making facilities, although once asked they said they "could provide them". The rooftop bar was closed mostly every evening until 11pm for "private functions" which was really annoying as we were not told, only a piece of paper was left in our room on check with details, they should let you know when you have booked. At check in they took a swipe of the card, which is perfectly normal, however on check out they stated by card was declined AMEX, twice, so i paid with another card, $2800 for 5 nights, yet when i called AMEX they told me they have not declined the card at all, and the hotel had taken a pre hold on the card for $2935, so i called the refinery back and they kept me on hold to check, she said she would call me back, however she emailed me to apologized and i would get a refund in 7 to 8 business days for the over charge of $2935 !!! but if i called AMEX and got a fax number from them they would fax AMEX for it to happen quicker, which i was not prepared to spend my last few hours in NY on the phone clearing their mess up. so as i write this i have not received my refund, and to make matters worse we asked the doorman to order us a yellow cab back to JFK as they have a fixed fee of $52, a car turned up and we were charged $95,
