Editorial review:

This divine spot in the Financial District is renowned for its top-notch service, beautiful lobby, Victorian-style décor, and elegant rooms with high ceilings. The brunch and tea service at Garden Court is incredible. Some feel that the room quality varies a bit, but others feel that it has earned its reputation.

              The hotel was beautiful and the rooms very spaciouse

              There was a real mixture in staff attitude , some where fantastic and very welcoming others I felt like i was intruding to ask thier advice.

              location

              needs a revamp - decor a bit faded

              very good location and excellent pld decor

              Allows animals so we have dogs barking a couple of nights. Regular noice from the plumbing also disturbed us

              Check in was great, when Scott heard it was a birthday weekend he had chocolate covered strawberries and a nice note sent to our room - unexpected and so nice

              Concierge didn't seem to have much time for us once she told us an event was sold out. Wouldn't even look up at us.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Spacious rooms. Very comfortable beds. Efficient check in and check out. Good location near union square.

              Hotel does not supply baby pillow or blankets. They did not inform us of that when we booked and asked for a baby crib. Took to much effort to make them see why that's wrong and do something about it. Eventually, however, they did the right thing and got us a baby blanket.

            • Couple
              5.8

              Staff was rude. No coffee in the room. Complimentary coffee in lobby was taken away by 8:30a.

              10.0

              The palace hotel was fantastic. The staff were fantastic and the room was very nice with a half decent view out of the window. The pool and spa were open early from 5 am which was great when the whole family was up early because of jet lag.

              The Walls let too much sound in from neighbouring rooms and the window were purposely glued shut

            • Couple
              8.2

              location was excellent ! The history of the hotel is impressive........A very elegant hotel....it was truly a lovely experience....you could walk everywhere or hop on the trolley.........

              The regular rooms are quite small....we had to upgrade to a suite in order to feel comfortable.

              In a true tradition of the Grand Hotels, the Palace is really lives up to the image and expectations. An experience that must be experienced by all.

              Pay WiFi? Catch up with the times.

              (1) Mirrors have smudges and their was someones hair in the drawer.(2) The wireless internet should be free for guests

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Staff was friendly and helpful, beautiful dinning halls, bar and room.

              While the elevators are gold platted and marble everywhere, the details are overlooked. The mattres was old and warn out, the dresser was broken.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              Good location, very nice historical building, nice room. Fantastic breakfast in beautiful restaurant - worth its price:-).

              Wifi in the room is necessary to pay - separately for each device, stupid, old fashioned.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              The architecture, the service art the bar and the Sunday brunch.

              At the reception and by the restaurant hostess having been replied in Spanish, whilst I am a 100% US citizen !

              Nobody ever answered my comments when I booked online.
