            Keskellä kaupunkia, rauhallinen, intiimi hotelli, jossa nuorekas, rento tunnelma ja ystävällinen palvelu.

            The room didn't include a kettle which was a small minus.

            The staff are very helpful and the facilities were great.

            The internet charges in the room are too expensive (around USD 14 for 24hours). Other hotels we get it for free.

            Reception staff were fantastic. Security staff also. Didnt get the chance to meet the bar staff but I bet they were also great - everyone that worked there was a pro. Ten times better than the average to poor staff at Element Westin where we also stayed (west 39th, though their rooms were outstanding). Also a great view from our room of the Chrysler building.

            The hotel and our room was quite dark.... The hotel could easily double- up on ceiling halogens, and in the room double-up on the wattage of the fluoro bulbs in the lamps and add some ceiling lights, for a much more comfortable experience, so we could actually see what we were doing. Also while there was the opportunity to 'borrow' a kettle or microwave etc from reception... I'd much rather have a kettle in the room by default.

            The staff were excellent; pleasant, helpful and always wearing a smile. The hotel was a chic boutique with gorgeous decor in the lobby areas. The room was a great size and a great comfort. Again, the decor was gorgeous. The bar attached to the hotel "Audreys" was a great bonus too. It was in a good location within walking distance to many landmarks inc Grand Central station and subway links. We never got to sample any of the hotel food, but we did love "Scottys" 24 hour breakfast diner at the end of the road.

            There wasnt much to fault about our stay here, and if I had to stretch for one it would be the fact there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. But no sooner did we request one, did we have one!

            Judging from travellers reviews of other new york hotels this room was huge by New York standards. We were very comfortable in our room which was impeccably clean and had a wonderful shower. Staff were always friendly and ready to accommodate our needs and advise us on the good places to eat nearby. The location is also perfect with many of manhattans attractions within walking distance but just far enough from all the noise/hustle and bustle of time's square. Grand central station is closeby making the subway an easy option to take for transport. If I return to New York in the future I will definitely stay at the St Giles again and would certainly recommend it to others travelling there.

            The room was surprizingly large and the location was very convenient, just a few blocks from subway. The front desk staff was great, especially the young woman who checked us in. A good location for going both downtown and uptown.

            Breakfast could be improved. We had to change our keys 3 times in 6 days because they stopped working in the elevator or our room door, but perhaps this was because they came into contract with cell phones.

            The hotel has a great location, close to Grand Central Station and Chrysler Building. Staff are helpful and friendly. Great hotel to stay.

            The staff are helpful, efficient and always available. The location is excellent.

            The bathroom tub/shower needs to be replaced as it is narrow and difficult to stand to take a shower while the shower head is old.

            When arriving at the Tuscany, I was impressed firstly with the doorman who was very helpful. The reception area was very smart and the reception person very helpful. Our room was large & spacious, and very clean (something we had been concerned about in ny) The bed was very comfortable, with extra pillows/blankets also provided. The room also had a full iron board, iron and a very speedy hairdryer too. The bathroom was very clean and smart, with hot water all times of the day!! Our room was cleaned every day and each day we were provided with clean towels. There was also an option to have your bed changed when ever you wanted, by leaving a card provided in the room, on your bed. The area was good and not to far away from getting to places(unless like my wife you want to wear killer heels, then you'll have get a cab!). Penn Station was approx 10-15 mins walk, and Times Sq about the same. A very modern hotel, although a little pricey, but its true you get what you pay for, so for us it was worth the money for cleanliness and comfort. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again. Also each night at reception there was complimentary cakes/desserts and hot drinks...

            Just a few downsides, one being the bedroom area was quite dark, with the only lighting being 2x bedside, 1x table and 1x standard lamp. The bathroom however was very bright. The mini bar and snacks in the room were very expensive. The food menu available also for room service was also expensive, as on top of your food choice not only was there a $5 room service charge, but also a 19.5% service charge along with the normal tax added...Obviously we didn't use any of these services! Also when we booked we asked for a coffee machine, but we didn't have one provided. We didn't bother to complain, but I think had we done so, room service would probably have given us one no problem, as everyone was very helpful....The Internet service in the hotel business center was also a bit pricey at $6.95 per every 15 mins, which we all know is never enough time.

            The quietness of the room that has been attributed to us (on the backside, and really quiet for New York).

            Some services like the concierge are shared with the St Giles The Court which is located next door. We had to go 4 times to find the concierge to book a shuttle to the airport and at the end of the day it turned out that while they had given us a specific time the shuttle in fact shown up much in advance and we could not get it. The hotel provided no solution but to take a taxi which ended up in more costs to us without any compensation from the hotel.

            The room was very large for New York standards. The location was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

            It was ever-so-slightly "hipper than thou" but not to an obnoxious degree.

            the only downside was the fact that the fan was very loud and came on what seemed to be every 15 minutes during the night in order to keep the temp around 68 (it was around freezing outside). We turned the fan off the next night which worked fairly well until about 6am when it was roasting in the room.

            The room was very large; as this was my first stay in NYC I do not have anything to compare it to, but from what I have heard the room appeared much larger than most NYC hotel rooms. Also, the hotel staff was more than helpful throughout our stay. When we checked in on the first day the clerk at the front desk pulled out a map and circled all of his favorite attractions in the city and how to get to them. After we checked out we were in a bit of a hurry to catch our bus home and one of the staff members ran down the street and caught a cab for us, which actaully ended up being the only reason we made it on time. The hotels location was also one of its best aspects. Via cab or subway we were able to get to most places in Manhattan within 15 minutes, and were able to walk to Times Square, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal and Rockefellar Center. While the hotel is centrally located, it is also not on a busy street and we never heard any outside noise while in the hotel room.

            The only downside to the hotel is that it is a bit on the older side, which shows in some of the bathroom ammenities. While the bathrooms have an updated look to them, the bath tub and sink are outdated and fall short of what you would expect from an upscale hotel. With some improvements to the bathroom the hotel room would have been as close to prefect as you can get from anything short of a 5 star hotel.

            we really enjoyed our stay at the tuscany..received a king size room which was one of the biggest hotel rooms I have stayed in..the best thing was being able to walk out of the hotel and in 2 minutes we were at grand central station and 5 minutes and we were on 5th avenue..very clean

            only thing was no tea making facilities in the room..the bar food and drink and even just to get a coffee was very overpriced..

            Close to Grand Central and the subway which made it easy to get anywhere in the city. Room was clean, the bed was super comfortable and the staff was polite and helpful.

            No complaints really. Wish there had been a coffee/tea maker in the room.
