U.S. News Review

This chic hotel set in the heart of Manhattan, right across the street from the New York Public Library, earns major props for its exceptional space. Inside, guests are greeted with 12-foot ceilings, spacious bathrooms and massive windows. And the elegance extends to the airy accommodations, which feature deluxe amenities like thick robes, large work desks, lavish bath products, sleek flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars filled with complimentary snacks (a bonus recent visitors highlight as a much-appreciated perk). Another major plus about staying at Andaz: Thanks to its Hyatt connection, Hyatt Gold Passport holders may redeem privileges, such as free night stays, by choosing to stay here. And though some previous visitors complain that the guest rooms are on the small side, most report a pleasant stay overall thanks to the kind and courteous hotel staff. When your stomach starts to rumble, head downstairs to highly praised dining venue The Shop.

Critic Reviews

New York Magazine

“Rooms are located in both the main tower — still bearing the limestone-and-brick facade of the 1916 Rogers Peet Building — as well as a second connected building.”


“Andaz is a mini Hyatt chain that caters to a hip, sophisticated crowd, and this outpost in Midtown Manhattan — with a supremely convenient location — is no exception.”

Travel + Leisure

“With the signature Andaz check-in pr(tocess here's no reception desk), you'll be greeted by a tablet-toting host who accommodates you throughout your stay.”
