The MAve Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Flatiron, Manhattan, New York City

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Free cheese and breakfast rolls from Artisanal
  • Clean, stylish rooms with great beds
  • Luxe perks: bathrobes, minibar, room service
  • H2O bath products
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Two to three blocks from three subway lines

Cons

  • Some of the smallest guest rooms in New York
  • No seating in the lobby
  • No spa
  • Inredibly cramped fitness closet
  • $150 fee for pets -- higher than at most New York hotels

Bottom Line

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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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")

 Rooms

New (as of 2009) and stylish -- but incredibly small

Boulevard King Room
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

 Bottom Line

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.
