Overview

Japanese-styled hotel with spacious rooms
Fee for in-room Wi-Fi access

At The Kitano Hotel New York, a luxury boutique hotel, guests are greeted with a complimentary cup of green tea at check-in. You can also sip some tea in the Hakubai restaurant, but that's not all this stylish hotel has going for it. Some highlights, according to recent guests, are JAZZ at Kitano and the hotel's elegant, custom-made mahogany and cherry furnishings. The accommodations are appointed with extravagant touches like down comforters, pillow-top mattresses, deep soaking tubs and marble bathrooms. Recent guests liked that the rooms are slightly larger than the average New York City hotel room. And should you decide to stray from your digs, you'll have a handful of world-class restaurants and boutiques within walking distance, thanks to The Kitano's Murray Hill location.

Located on an especially quiet, residential strip of snazzy Park Avenue in Murray Hill, the Japanese-owned, 149-room Kitano's appeal is in the details – in-room towel warmers, soundproof windows, a free morning shuttle to Wall Street, and impeccable service.

The staff is quite formal in their manner and most are of Japanese origin.

What is not classically Japanese, though, is the large size of the lovely guest rooms, which are decked out in beige and gold. ... The property also attracts music enthusiasts with Jazz at Kitano, a restaurant by day and jazz club by night.
