The Kimberly Hotel

A New York classic with enduring charm
On first approach, The Kimberly Hotel gives off a standard New York apartment building vibe, but upon entering the lovely marble lobby, you’ll see why this place is a perennial favorite — the refined crimson and gold antique furnishings exude an Old World warmth and charm.

Politicians, international dignitaries and tourists alike consistently choose The Kimberly over others to experience classic luxury hotel hospitality. The central location — conveniently within walking distance of Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Times Square, Grand Central Station and Radio City Music Hall — makes this boutique spot a smart stay whether you’re headed to the Big Apple for business or pleasure.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • At the New York hotel’s front desk, a hand-written note of thanks from President Jimmy Carter lets you know The Kimberly is serious about taking care of its guests.
  • There are only five or six suites on each floor ensuring privacy and top-notch service, a cornerstone of The Kimberly. 
  • If working out is a must, you can either visit the intimate onsite fitness center or the lauded New York Health and Racquet Club — both complimentary.
  • During the summer, take a scenic cruise to see the sights from the Hudson River aboard the hotel’s 75-foot Kimberly Yacht.
Things to Know
  • It may be hard to miss, but check out the spectacular fish tank off the main lobby, which is the largest privately owned salt water circular aquarium in the United States.
  • Sixty-eight percent of hotel guests are repeat visitors — 50 percent of guests spend 50 nights or more a year at The Kimberly.
The Rooms
  • Luxurious details outfit each of the 193 guest rooms decorated with a classic-meets-contemporary European flair.
  • Most rooms have a balcony or terrace (very rare in the this city) and all have kitchens or kitchenettes, making this boutique hotel comfy for a small or extended stay.
  • There are Frette linens on feather beds, umbrellas for rainy days, flat-screen televisions, bathrobes and electric shoe-shining devices.
  • The Executive One Bedroom Suites have stellar cityscape views over 50th Street, and the Luxury Executive Plus One Bedroom Suites come with more than 800 square feet of space and balconies overlooking the majestic Chrysler Building.
The Restaurants
  • With an impressive retractable glass ceiling and stunning views of the Chrysler Building, the 30th-floor bar is most festive for weekend brunch and continues to attract fashionable late-night crowds throughout the week.
  • For those who don’t want to hang out long after the sun has gone down, breakfast is also served on the roof for hotel guests.
  • Empire Steak House opened adjacent to the lobby in early 2016 — it’s a grand bi-level space with roomy banquettes and atmosphere to spare.
  • Bistango is the on-property Italian restaurant and features an impressive cocktail menu and tasty made-to-order flatbreads.
