When you think of a hotel room in Manhattan, what comes to mind? Teeny little rooms where it’s hard to even open closets or drawers? Old buildings in need of a refresh with updated decor? Zero amenities at a high cost? None of this is true at the Omni Berkshire Place Hotel, located right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.
The Omni Berkshire Place Hotel hosted me for the night of the Time to Play Showcase in NYC, and I couldn’t have been happier with the stay – from the friendly staff to the gorgeous room. I was greeted by hotel staff right as my cab pulled up to the door, and the doorman kindly brought my small bag right to the check-in desk. Upon arriving, I discovered that I’d be upgraded to a junior suite – a totally unexpected surprise.
The rooms at the Omni Berkshire are relatively spacious, especially for a NYC room, and have been recently renovated. The decor is clean and modern – very uncluttered, but still very stylish. I was most impressed with how absolutely clean the entire hotel is – not a speck of dust or dirty anyway. Room service, and morning coffee was delivered promptly and with perfect service. The location of the hotel is perfect for business and leisure travelers. It’s just a few blocks from Rockefeller Plaza, 5th Avenue, Radio City Music Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and Times Square.
The Omni Berkshire Place also offers 24-hour room service, LG 37-inch flat-screen televisions, health club, twice-daily housekeeping, and wireless high-speed internet. I’d highly recommend signing up for the complimentary select guest membership – you’ll get free WiFi, morning beverage delivery service, a free morning newspaper, and complimentary pressing of two items.
