Royalton is an upscale, luxury hotel in Midtown displaying beautiful architecture with floor-to-ceiling bronze, high-covered chairs and leather walls. Rooms and suites come in a variety of styles, with or without soaking tubs and fireplaces. Contemporary designs and modern technologies make rooms feel better than home. Standard rooms contain flat-screen televisions, iPads, glass showers and plush bedding. Suites also present separate living rooms, oversized bathrooms and dining banquettes. Fresh flowers are a welcoming touch that adds life to the rooms. Forty Four is a bar and restaurant in the lobby serves simple, quality dishes for all meals. The hotel is near many museums, local restaurants and boutiques. Only one block from the Theater District, families can easily slip out of the room for a matinee.

Really enjoyed the royalton hotel. The location in midtown is perfect for exploring the area and close to subway links for the rest of the island and beyond.
The hotel itself has a great feel to it, the entrance lobby and bar areas are great and we really enjoyed the drinks we had there. We didn't eat at the hotel so unable to comment on that.
Our room was a double with a 'disco tub' and was large enough. Plenty storage, comfortable beds, everything you need. Bathroom was great and functional. Our only very minor issue is the lack of natural light in the room, this coupled with the low lighting in the bar made it feel like it was permanently night time or maybe that was the jet lag. Very minotbpoint anyway.
Overall, we'd return if we wanted to stay in midtown again as all the major attractions are really accessible and there are some good spots for breakfast on the same street as the hotel.

Amazing lobby, wonderful staff, clean - beautiful rooms. From the moment you walk in the lobby, you know you're in for something special. Friday afternoon had a wonderful happy hour buzz about it, but then by the evening, it was back to a quiet and cozy place to relax.
