Overall, a great stay - beautiful, hip, super clean and very spacious (especially by New York standards). Everything was first-rate except for the concierges (I dealt with two). I would definitely stay here again. Enjoy a glass of wine at the Knave bar.
In booking our hotel, we had no idea what to expect. The desk agent, Avery, was very friendly and he made sure our stay would be a memorable one. Our room had a terrific view of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building on one side, and the river and part of the United Nations on the other. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bath was very nice. Our trip was a great experience.
From the time we pulled up in the car to the moment we left the service was perfect. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful every moment of our stay there and went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. This meant a lot since it was the first time traveling with our 18 month old daughter. Our experience couldn't be better and their restaurant Clement was delicious.
This was my first experience at the Skyline, a very nice hotel with extremely friendly staff. We were given a free room upgrade which was an excellent room. And we swam in the 82 degree salt water pool (very nice & warm in the winter) with gorgeous views of the NYC skyline. The hotel was extremely clean and very updated for a NYC hotel. The only problem we had was the noise level on the street but it is NYC (we went a week before Christmas). Also, it was close enough to the sights but not so close that we were crowded. Also, restaurants were extremely accessible from this location.
The staff were absolutely excellent from arrival right through our stay. We arrived to a buzzing atmosphere with many enjoying cocktails in the foyer and a Jazz Pianist. Our room on the 5th floor was superb - the room had every amenity you could think of, the mini bar had every spirit available I could think of, the bathroom was incredible, and getting into bed every night after a long day of sight seeing and taking in New York, was a fantastic feeling.
Being so central, I was concerned it might be noisy but we could not hear a thing from Times Square. Great access to the subway station, so within minutes you could be downtown walking the Brooklyn Bridge, in Greenwich Village enjoying a cocktail, or taking a stroll through Central Park.
I would go so far as saying this is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, if not the best. If you are looking for a boutique hotel, with a central location I could not recommend this enough. Absolutely superb.
