good day see you
kangseok, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Our stay was great... a few things bothered us though. First, the hotel bar that we were looking forward to trying was “booked for a special event” both nights we were there. Also, while the room was spacious and comfortable, the blinds didn’t work and some of the furniture seemed dirty or old. We arrived early and, eventually, was able to check in early given our long travel experience to the hotel. Everyone was nice, but not overly so, and I like that.

Best Hotel in 20 Years
My wife and I have been traveling to NYC for 20 years. We always stay in boutique hotels because they are more interesting. The William was the best of the bunch. I guess because it was low season, the Desk very kindly upgraded us to the largest room in the hotel which was awesome. Even if we had gotten the room we had booked, this would have been one of the best hotels. It is very clean and in good shape - room and common areas. The bed was so comfortable - I honestly have not slept as well as I did at The William in, well, forever. Amazon Echo (spot?) was a very nice touch. We were on the second floor, right near the front of the building, yet it was (for NYC standards) very quiet. The location was good - about three blocks from Grand Central. Lots of coffee/wine/food within a block or two.Times Square is less than a 10 minute walk.

May Be My New Place To Stay!
Really neat, “boutique” place. The usual NY small-ish rooms, very modern and with a limited but very good room service. As I am in NYC periodically, I will put this hotel at the top of my list, assuming pricing is as reasonable as this trip.

Trendy Hotel
Trendy and hip hotel. Very comfortable room and nice rain shower. Stayed in the PH which had plenty of seating and a mini kitchen. Good location. Need to carry luggage up several steps to get to the lobby.

Great location - great room - nice amenities & HBO
Overall it was a very nice stay. I love the modern amenities like having an echo dot and the TV channels were really good - fantastic you include HBO in the package - and a refrigerator! The only reason I didn't give a 5 out of 5 is that when I first came to the hotel and saw the steep steps, I asked the guy at the top if there was a ramp. I had a 50 pound suitcase and a 20 pound backpack. The guy was at the top of the steps basically telling me the ramp would be a big hassle. So I proceeded to lug all of my things up those steps while he stayed at the top of the stairs. He was half my age and a guy, so.... let's just say it was painful on many levels and I could have easily hurt myself way worse than just a sore back for a week. There should be an accessible entrance - I cannot imagine that many guests will be staying without luggage....

Great Place to stay in Manhattan!
This was a very nice little boutique type hotel. I like the lounges and the downstairs pub. You are close to Bryant Park and Time Square bit not too close where there is a lot of heavy foot traffic around the Hotel. Perfect location.

Absolutely fantastic!
What a fantastic experience! The hotel is very conveniently located near Grand Central Station and Bryan Park, which gives you easy access to the subway. We got upgraded to one of their suites with a terrace, and that was just the cherry on top! The suite itself was nicely decorated and it included a small kitchenette, a seating area, and a separate bedroom area. The terrace was almost the same size of the room and it had a great view of some buildings and kind of gave you an oasis in the middle of the city to relax in the evening. The staff were all very attentive and willing to go the extra mile; the bellman even run over to Park Avenue to find us a taxi when we were leaving for the airport. Thank you to all the staff at The William! You made our weekend in NYC a memorable one.
