Hotel 48LEX New York

New York, USA

The hotel

As its name gives away, Hotel 48LEX sits on the corner of Lexington Avenue and 48th Street, in the thick of Midtown Manhattan’s social and sightseeing scenes. But the name doesn’t give away all its attractions. A deluxe four diamond urban sanctuary, your chic guest room’s designed to feel like a Manhattan apartment, dressed in muted charcoals and cloud whites, complete with silver linings. Inside your residential-style lodgings, essentials like a kitchenette are accompanied by luxuries like floor-to-ceiling city views, pantries with Dean & DeLuca goodies, and free PressReader access. Tearing yourself from your ‘apartment’ rewards you with complimentary breakfasts and wine and artisanal cheese receptions in The Lounge, with its cool cocktail bar; and modern American bistro dishes at Lexington Brass, whose famous brunches feature a ‘Make your own Bloody Mary’ bar.

Only offered excuses did not issue apologies, refunds or option to move to new room. Waste of time waiting on ‘engineers’ to restart the ac unit. That ‘fix’ only left the unit running for a few hours before it turned off… Read more

Only offered excuses did not issue apologies, refunds or option to move to new room. Waste of time waiting on ‘engineers’ to restart the ac unit. That ‘fix’ only left the unit running for a few hours before it turned off again. Will never return. Recommend others stay away especially in summer months! Also the lobby uses too much perfume.

I forgot my watch there and their housekeeping stole it. No apologies or follow up from them. So disappointed in them. I stayed with them last year and loved it but this time was different. I wasn't asking them to pay because obviously I have no proof but my words. It would have been good to know they were taking actions so it won't happen again

This is a great value boutique hotel close to everything and very central. Easy walking distance to 5th Ave., Central Park, Rockefeller Centre etc. We were lucky to get a high floor that was quieter - ask for that. Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Just had to say how much we enjoyed our stay! Our terrace room was perfect and the staff couldn’t be more helpful! Had a great time at wine and cheese hour! We will be back. Precilla was so sweet and helpful.

Stayed at this hotel (executive room) in April 2019 on a weekend trip to NYC. Staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. The hotel is very clean and modern and has a boutique ambiance. Rooms are reasonably spacious for a New York City hotel. Rooms have modern decor and are well maintained / clean. Our package included an American style breakfast, which was limited in choice (but served its purpose and was pleasent). The hotel is in close proximity to the subway for wider trips around NYC. Walking distance to Times Square, Rockafella Centre, Central Park, Empire State and Central Station (amongst other attractions). Overall, a very pleasant stay and the hotel is highly recommended. I would definitely chose the same hotel again on my return. Read less
