My daughter and I decided to have the trip of a lifetime to New York following my retirement. We stayed at the Refinery Hotel for 4 nights and we were extremely glad that we had chosen this wonderful hotel. It's location was ideal, located between 5th and 6th Avenue within comfortable walking distance to Times Square, Rockerfeller Centre, Macy's and a lot of other wonderful shops along Fifth Avenue.
We did use a lot of taxis as walking for longer periods was an issue for me, this does take quite a lot of money but well worth it in our circumstances. We visited all the well known New York landmarks and found that an early start helped a lot with the queus and the amount of people - we were at the Empire State Building as they opened at 08.00 a.m. Similarily Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island and Top of the Rock.
We had wonderful meals in a lot of special restaurants but the two that stood out were Gallagher's steak house in the Broadway area and The Boathouse in Central Park where we were fortunate in experiencing exceptionally warm weather and we enjoyec lunch overlooking the lake.
A wonderful night at the theatr watching Jersey Boys was also a highlight which we'll never forget.
Back to the wonderful Refinery Hotel, we were so glad that we had chosen a boutique hotel and not one of the much larger establishments that New York is well known for. The staff couldn't do enough for you and service was world class - actually made our holiday.

Cannot rate this hotel highly enough. The moment you arrive the staff are happy to help, the hotel itself is very luxurious and welcoming. The rooms are clean and very spacious and they are kept clean throughout your stay. Tea and coffee making facilities are available if you ask and they keep them topped up. The hotel is really well located for shopping and site seeing. Loved New York and would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Could not fault this hotel. Very clean. Helpful staff. Tasty bagels, muffins, yoghurt, cereal for breakfast. Unlimited tea and coffee 24 hours/day. Good central mid town position. New York hotels are pricey. This one is top end price for three star, but very good.

From the moment I arrived, the staff were great and most helpful. My room was well appointed and clean with the best view of the Empire State Building. Though small (normal for NYC Hotels unless you fork out the bucks for larger living spaces), the Queen sized bed was most comfortable and bathroom was large... For me, the two most important attributes. The staff was eager to please and I must say, succeeded.
