It is a wonderful hotel. The view from the back of the hotel reveals an oasis. The ground floor rooms open out to private patios, I would definitely request on my next visit.

It is a wonderful hotel. The view from the back of the hotel reveals an oasis. The ground floor rooms open out to private patios, I would definitely request on my next visit. The view from the back is a peaceful one. Between the row of trees along the back of the adjacent property is a pool of water and a green lawn. It is quite relaxing which was comforting for me while I visited my husband at nearby Sloan Cancer Center. In addition, the staff was very accommodating. I would definitely stay there any time I visit NYC. Read less

Great location. Staff was extremely accommodating. The rooms were fine, not exceptional but clean. Average amount of space. The one real plus was if you needed a bathroom when yours was occupied there was one available to use, in my eyes that's an added advantage.

My husband had surgery at HSS in NYC and we were fortunate to find Garden Suites! The whole staff was so accommodating and truly caring during our stay! It clearly already has a reputation, as we noticed and talked with many that had medical situations that chose this hotel. Kris in particular was seen on bended knee zipping up a suitcase before loading it, assuring a guest about their anxious day, engaging my husband over his upcoming surgery or just sharing a laugh with guests walking by. Even my dog was charmed by all the attention! Each level of staff was so helpful and supportive! Attentive front desk, and amazing cleaning staff were so sensitive and genuinely cared about making us comfortable! Our room was comfortable and fit our needs during our 8 day stay very well! A full kitchen was a great help! We look forward to meeting our new friends at The Garden Suites again soon as my husband will need another surgery. Read less
