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.
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.
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.

Our stay in New York was everything we had imagined and we can say that it did indeed live up to our expectations. The city is very alive and exciting. The sights and sounds will be remembered for a lifetime and we made sure that we saw and experienced as much as was physically possible during our week's stay. One must always have a plan beforehand with options and recommendations gleaned from guide books, and friends or family who have visited the city, particularly in recent times. Be prepared to make changes to scheduled plans and always have an alternative in place should the need arise. We made a good fist of ticking off our most important options on the master list of must do's and maybe do's. A very friendly city with good transport - the subway and trains were a pleasant surprise with no graffiti in sight. We will remember the poor state of many of the roads but in many instances this is due to either the numerous developments being erected or refurbished, or to the extremes of winter and summer weather that plays havoc with roading. We will remember the masses of eateries, large and small, the freshness of the food and extensive choices offered any time of the day and night.
We had amazing views from the Rockefeller Centre in daytime and the Empire State at night. Central Park is huge and you need a good pair of shoes as we walked miles in the city during our stay.
