The Quin Hotel Review

My Easter weekend in New York City was quite enjoyable staying at The Quin hotel on 
West 57th Street. The location is quite stellar, near 5th Avenue, but close to Central Park, 
Columbus Circle, Carnegie Hall, various subway lines. You can really walk to 
most places in the city from this hotel which I just love. 
The lobby is quite luxe. The hotel used to be the Buckingham Hotel, home to cultural icons   
such as the opera singer Giovanni Martinelli and the painter Georgia O’Keefe.  
The hotel was renovated in 2010, however, the elevators are still slow and tiny! 

I loved this sitting area where they have coffee available in the mornings 
Very cool guitar for decoration  
You will find lots of artwork  
My room was quite comfortable, not large but big enough for one person 

Plenty of room in the closet  
Loved the Nespresso machine 
The bottled water was free which was unexpected  
Some staining on the desk was disappointing for a 5 star hotel  
Electronic controls  
Loved my views !!  


FRESH products are one of my favorites  
Gorgeous bathroom! Someone actually said on trip advisor this was small, 
apparently they have not visited too many NYC hotels. This was a very
decent size for NYC standards.  



Positives: 
  • Nespresso Machines  
  • Electronic controls for lighting, shades, turn down service 
  • Walking distance to 5th Avenue, Columbus Circle, Carnegie Hall   
  •  Modern styled rooms, comfy bed 
  • Beautiful lobby 
  • Gorgeous bathroom with waterfall shower  
  • FRESH Toiletries
  • Full length mirror 
  • Easy access to cabs or subways  
  • Duane Reade across the street 
  •  Cold water with lemon and cucumber in the lobby 
  • 24 hour fitness center with personal training & private yoga available 

Negatives: 
  • No Spa but Red Door is near    
  • Loud air conditioner 
  • No fresh flowers in the room 
  • Rooms can be very close together 
  • Street Noise for lower level rooms

Hotel prices are at their lowest in the months of January and February; their highest September and October. Sunday nights are the lowest prices for hotel rooms, in most cases. My go to places for checking prices for hotels are TrivagoTrip AdvisorHotels.com and Travelzoo. Always remember to check the hotel's website itself, they are really trying to have you   
book direct and sometimes offer specials or a discount with AAA that is cheaper than the websites I mentioned above. 
I am also finding that if you book on your mobile device, you can save some money as well. I actually got a better rate via 
my mobile phone than using my AAA discount online direct at the hotel. You should really do some research on your price 
for hotel a few different ways, and ALWAYS book a room that you can cancel, you never know what may happen 
in the future. 

Remember to take into account for your total cost the NYC Hotel tax of 14.75% plus Daily $2.00 per room occupancy fee.

Would I reserve a night at the Quin Hotel again? I sure would. I would probably keep the rate under $300.00 per night. The location is really stellar, and the hotel itself is quite lovely. I had an issue with opening my safe and they sent someone up 
right away who was very helpful. The next day they called me to be sure the safe was working properly. They do not have 
ice machines on the floors, you have to call for it to be brought to you. I was a bit disappointed they didn't bring me any 
welcome desserts as other hotels have done in the past. I find bathrooms very important in my stay, and this one was one 
of the best I have had from all the hotels I have visited. I love being able to walk everywhere, and cabs are easy to pick up 
on 5th Avenue or Columbus Circle. There are many restaurants close to the hotel as well, and having Duane Reade 24/7 
across the street is wonderful if you forgot something at home.   

 My rating for this hotel, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being perfect in every way, is an 8. 

Disclosure: This stay was paid for by me. I will always state at the end of each review whether my stay was paid for by 
myself or if I was hosted by the hotel. I will honestly tell you about my experience at this hotel, not being swayed in any way by complimentary services. I know you value my opinion, and it is important to me to be as honest as possible. All opinions are my own. Thank you so much.
