Oyster Hotel Review
Located in Flatiron, a safe, less touristy neighborhood
Just down the block from the Museum of Sex, this Flatiron hotel is only one block away from the small, but lovely, Madison Square Park. But the best part about the location is that you're essentially in the center of the city, within easy reach (by subway) of the midtown business district (
Midtown East), the tourist attractions of Times Square and Midtown West, and the downtown nightlife and shopping in SoHo, Chelsea, and the East Village.
About two to three blocks from R, W and the 6 subway lines 20-minute subway ride to Central Park 15-minute subway ride to Times Square 10-minute walk to the Empire State Building 30-minute subway ride to the ferry terminal to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island 20-minute subway (or bus) ride to Rockefeller Center 25-minute subway ride to the American Museum of Natural History 30-minute subway (or bus) ride to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the "Met") and 20-minute subway (or bus) ride to the Museum of Modern Art (the "MoMA")
New (as of 2009) and stylish -- but incredibly small
Boulevard King Room
At, roughly, 100 square feet, the standard guest room -- called an "Urban Full" -- has just barely enough room for its full-size bed; it's one of the smallest guest rooms in the city Madison King and Queen Rooms, Madison Doubles (with two full-size beds) and Boulevard Kings all offer a bit more space -- but not much Minibar Electronic safe Single-cup coffeemaker Comfortable beds: great sheets; pillow-top mattress iHome iPod-docking alarm clock 32-inch flat-screen TV Free Wi-Fi H20 Aquatics bath products Thick Velour bathrobes Small bathroom, just a stand-up shower with a rainfall head that tends to drench the room
Like its sisters in
South Beach, the 72-room MAve hotel (opened in 2009) uses slight style -- and a few treats, like H2O bath prodcuts and a nice, free cheese spread at breakfast -- as a means to over-inflate the price of incredibly tiny guest rooms in Murray Hill. A better boutique? Thompson LES, Ace, Smyth... the list goes on.
