I looked at all the traditional hotel options in NYC and none could properly accommodate my family with three kids. Lyric offered something no where else could....an extremely comfortable 2 bed / 2 bath unit with spacious living area and an amazing kitchen with all the bells and whistles. The rooms were expertly cleaned each day and the staff was very friendly and helpful with making plans for my young kids. A great gym with everything you need is available for guests, a great coffee shop (Black Fox Coffee) and one of the best new restaurants in NYC (Crown Shy) is located in the lobby.
We loved Lyric for its classic design features and amenities. The hotel occupies several floors in a recently converted Art Deco building in the finance district.
Great sense of space with high ceilings, good lighting, big windows and in addition to a fully equipped kitchen, a nice touch of a record player and half a dozen NY themed records in our room.
It’s styled for short or long stay with access to gym, laundry and cafe on site. There’s an excellent supermarket in the next street with an eye watering array of choices if you prefer to eat in.
Convenient subway access to a choice of lines is on the doorstep.
We would happily stay at Lyric on a return visit to New York
