We stayed at the Omni Berkshire Place for my Mom's 70th birthday and it was a wonderful experience. The location is the best you can get in NYC (just off 5th Ave and a short walk to so many shops, restaurants, Central Park etc.) The staff are so helpful - in particular the concierge service is exceptional! Our room was on the 32nd floor with a street view - highly recommended to add to the NYC experience! The restaurant in the hotel is lovely and the staff are very attentive but if it's too expensive, there are lots of lovely spots to eat nearby. We had breakfast in Le Pain Quotidien which is only a 2 min walk from the hotel and casual dinners in places like Bill's Bar & Burger at the Rockefeller Center (only a 3 min walk) - however for a more upmarket dinner we would recommend Tao Uptown which does amazing cocktails and food and is only an 8 min walk from the hotel. We didn't get to use the fitness facilities during this trip but it's great to have that option in the hotel. We will definitely stay at the Omni Berkshire Place the next time we're in NYC!!

We stayed here as part of my 40th birthday celebrations and really glad we did. The staff are very helpful. The rooms have everything you need. The location is a massive plus too. I would definitely recommend staying here and would have no problem in returning here. We had a great time.

I've traveled to the Omni Berkshire Place a number of times over the years, but this was my first visit in quite a while. The experience was fantastic: they've re-done the fitness center since I last went and they have almost everything I need; the housekeeping was fantastic.

I am extremely disappointed with my stay at this Omni. I literally stay at Omni hotels all over the world as my preferred hotel chain, and this hotel is definitely NOT Omni level service.

I am extremely disappointed with my stay at this Omni. I literally stay at Omni hotels all over the world as my preferred hotel chain, and this hotel is definitely NOT Omni level service. When I checked in, I was offered a room upgrade for $50 more per night, which I accepted. When I got to the room, my keys did not work. I had to go back down to the reception desk (all my luggage in tow), and she (Yumi) gave me another key and told me to try again. Still didn’t work! Back down to the lobby I go. She said she would check on it, and had security use their key to let me in the room. Meanwhile my key still doesn’t work! I unpacked and then told them I wanted to go out and see NYC (my first time there, and I was only staying for 3 days, so this problem waisted most of the first day). They said it should be fixed when I get back. I got back 4 hours later, and i still couldn’t get into my room! They again had someone else open my door for me and said they would again work on getting me a key. I finally had to call downstairs AGAIN, and over an hour later security came up and rekeyed the door. A complete waste of a day as I was basically being held hostage in my room. Now let’s talk about the actual room that I had to pay to upgrade to (I’m Expedia gold member, so upgrades are supposed to be complimentary, but whatever). The room was average at best. There wasn’t even a refrigerator in the room, but an empty spot in the cabinet where one should have been. No outlets in the bathroom which made getting ready a real pain. No coffee accessories in the room, no water, and the toiletries were cheap. The view was awful. I have no idea what made this an upgraded room! And to top all of this off, they double charged me for the room upgrade. No one offered me anything to make this situation right... horrible service. As a consistent Omni hotel client, I will make sure to never stay at this location again. The worst experience at a hotel I’ve ever had. Read less
