At The Muse Hotel, we make travel more inspiring. There's so much happening in New York City outside our doors - the electrifying theatre scene, the hustle of Times Square, the shopping, the lights and the go-go-go. Our 200-room boutique oasis gives you access to it all, plus uplifting ways to have fun and unwind.
The Muse Hotel has 181 guestrooms and 19 suites, some of them with their own private balcony. Each hotel room features distinct works of art themed around imagination and Greek mythology. Get lost in the soothing colour palette of cream, light blue and black. Grab a healthy snack from the mini bar. Sink into sumptuous down feather beds (we do offer two feather-free floors) or get centred with our in-room yoga and Pilates TV programs.
The Muse Hotel, is at the crossroads of world-class shopping, sightseeing, museums, theater and nightlife. From Broadway shows to Fifth Avenue shopping, plus easy access to the Javits convention center, the best of Manhattan waits outside our doors. Major sports arenas are also within easy reach if you hop aboard the subway (stops are an easy one to four blocks away) which takes you straight to Yankees, Mets and Giants territories. Get out there and enjoy!

Perfect location, great staff but, a bit loud

Ambiance/Location: just a few steps from Times square. Perfect starting point for exploring Manhattan. Near to plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and all the sightseeing locations. This also means, it is loud at night. The hotel furniture is quite luxurious. We felt comfortable. Service/Rooms: The staff is great. Do not hesitate to ask them for advice on restaurants or everything else. The will help you with pleasure and they have good hints. They try to match with every expectation. The room is clean, spacious and meets all the requirements you could have.The bed is comfortable and we sleep well. Only the windows are poorly insulated so you hear all the noiz from the streets and if it's cold outside, you need the heating which is loud too. This doesn't bother us as much as it may others. Food (Dinner): We strongly recommend a visit in the Nios Restaurant. It was fabulous! Between 5pm and 6pm there is free wine for all guests. That is really nice even if it's always the same wine. We didn't had Breakfast in the Hotel, so we cannot say anything about that. Prices on the List in our room, were not too high and matches with the normal prices in NYC. Price/Performace ratio: The price for our stay was fair and we absolutely recommend this hotel for a city trip on which you are looking also for a nice stay near the heart of New York City. Collapse

We are Kimpton regulars. Regarding this hotel, I have mixed feelings about our 5 night stay. #1) My wife and I went to NYC for our 43rd wedding anniversary. We mentioned, when we made our reservations, that it was our anniversary. My wife's sister and her husband joined us and were celebrating their 35th wedding anniversary. They received a room upgrade and a bottle of champagne in their room. We also received a room upgrade.....but only after reminding them that it was our anniversary, too. And, we never received any champagne, even though the guy at the desk mentioned it. #2) Three of the mornings we were awakened by a very loud cleaning staff in the hallway. We were in NYC on vacation, enjoyed the evenings and tried to "sleep in". No such luck. If we were there on business and had to be up at 6 or 7, then it would have been fine. #3) Advice on where to go and how to navigate the city varied dramatically. Some hotel staff were very helpful / informative while others didn't know or acted as if they couldn't care less. #4) Wine service was nice and the wine was delicious though the lobby is really uncomfortable....no chairs, only benches. On most nights, they did a final call. One night they closed up without letting the customers know. They were there and then they weren't. Also, other Kimptons that we have stayed at served appetizers. This one did not. #5) Coffee service in the lobby ended too early for "vacationers". #6) On the positive side: a) The room was very nice. Small as expected, but modern / updated, fresh, clean, nicely decorated, etc. The bathroom was the same. b) The location is perfect for attending plays. We walked (less than 10 minutes) to 3 theaters. And, many other theaters are very close by. Times Square is half a block away. c) The restaurant in the hotel was good, but has a limited menu. My past experiences with Kimptons have been really good across the board....nice rooms, good locations and great customer service throughout our stay. The Muse was not consistently good across the board and at times, the quality of their customer service was far less than expected. Therefore, the Muse gets a 3-rating from me. Collapse

I've been to New York countless times and stayed in various hotels and apartments. I have also stayed at some of the best hotels in the world. The Muse is a small boutique hotel on 46th, 5 minutes from Times Square but don't imagine this is a touristy hotel, it is perfectly situated and the casual friendly foyer, reception, bar, restaurant and staff make for a great business or city break. My wife and I are in New York 5-6 times a year and this is our 1st choice. Thanks to all staff. Collapse

We needed to come to New York for a short four-day trip. Normally we stay at five star hotels for 1 to 2 weeks. American Express suggested this hotel. It was close to where we had some business to do as well as close to the theater district. This is a beautiful small boutique hotel. We stayed in room 1701 which is a beautiful executive room with a nice view looking down 46 street. The bathroom was unusually large and comfortable for New York. The room was beautifully decorated. The staff could not be more accommodating.would definitely stay here again. Collapse
A gem in the heart of Broadway with some of the best staff!

I stay here at least once a year, and since it's been a while since I last visited I want to reiterate that this hotel is possibly one of the best overall deals in the city. First, the staff goes out of the way to be friendly and try to make your stay great. Secondly, the endless free hot liquids in the lobby (coffee and tea) during morning hours is a godsend. followed by the free wine during the early evening "wine hour". As a Kimpton member you get free wifi (which so many hotels charge for). Finally while NYC rooms can be pricey, if you find a deal on the Kimpton website, you can save a bundle on this hotel. Even without the "special offers", if you have a AAA card you can shave some dollars off your bill. Strong, full shower! Bright bathroom lighting and robes! Very clean! More TV channels than I knew what to do with. AND STAFF at the desk, at midnight or 4 a.m. Well done Kimpton. See you again soon.... Collapse
