The Renwick hotel in Midtown East offers high-end amenities in a historic setting. Designed in 1928 by John Renwick, the same architect responsible for St. Patrick's Cathedral, the original building housed artists' studios and apartments that hosted John Steinbeck, Thomas Mann and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Now, the hotel calls up that literary history with artist-inspired accommodations featuring easels, origami kits, hand-painted window dressings and stools, and quotes from its famous former residents. 

Residential-style suites look and feel like private apartments, with original hardwood flooring and plush velvet couches in the separate living area. In-room amenities include Brooklyn-based Apotheke toiletries, complimentary bottled water and legendary novels to read. All guests can take advantage of a business centre, complimentary Wi-Fi, and passes to a local NYC gym.

The on-site restaurant Bedford & Co features elevated comfort food such as chicken pot pie and truffle mac and cheese.

Stepping outside the hotel's door on East 40th Street, guests feel more like locals, with neighbourhood diners and coffee shops lining Lexington Avenue. Grand Central Terminal (and the 4, 5, 6, 7 and Shuttle trains) is just a three-minute walk away, and the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue is five minutes by foot. The Empire State Building is a 10-minute stroll away.

The hotel itself is newly renovated and the interior design of the room is very well done. I really enjoy the atmosphere of the hotel, just not the staff.

I booked a room with two-queen size beds for 3 adults and we arrived to a room with one king-size bed and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was dirty with hair on it, so all 3 of us had to squeeze into the king size bed for the night. I was not notified with the change beforehand, and when we complained to the staff about this, the response was "I don't know if the sofa bed is comfortable, I have never slept on one." We complained to the staff when checking out the second day, and while the front desk staff agreed to give me $62 back to compensate, she did it with an attitude. Currently, I haven't seen the credit in my credit card bill yet. Instead, my credit card has a pending charge of $253 while the room is supposed to be $203-$62. Therefore, I am not sure if the compensation is happening yet, but I am very disappointed with the hotel staff.

The location was excellent. It is very close to Grand Central. The staff at the hotel were friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable and we felt there was enough room for three adults.

When I booked this in December on Travelzoo, you indicated I would be charged in full upon booking, and I assumed I was.... Well, I wasn’t. So I went to NYC for the weekend thinking my hotel was already all paid for. The charge hit my credit card THE MORNING WE WERE TO CHECK IN. Not only that, there was a $50/day security hold charged to my credit card also, until we checked out. Now, I understand holding a card for incidental charges, but to preauthorize $100 I think is a bit much. PLUS I don’t recall seeing that anywhere on the “deal” description. Overall I liked the hotel, but I am not happy about the fact that I thought I had already paid for it.

The hotel has a nice bar and restaurant - was surprised that the bar was closed by 11:00 PM on a Friday night - and is super conveniently located.
