Hotel 57 Renaissance – New York, NY

Hotel Review

A couple of months ago, I needed to be in NYC overnight on business and the hotel rates were through the roof, even by NYC standards!  While I rarely use points when on a business trip, this was a situation where it seemed like a prudent choice.  A colleague of mine, who is a devoted Marriott brand patron, suggested Hotel 57, a Marriott Renaissance property just around the corner from where my meetings were to be held.

For 35,000 Marriott Rewards points, I was able to avoid a $500+ bill at this boutique-style property.

After staying there, I would say it was well worth the points.  I wouldn’t say my room was spectacular but it was very functional and stylish with great internet connectivity.  The lobby featured a well-appointed bar, the Opia Bar & Lounge, that also provides light dining.  They also have a lovely rooftop lounge with great views of the NYC skyline including the Chrysler building.

Due to my short stay, I did not have the need to avail myself to the services the Navigators there, whom my colleague says are “top notch,” or to dine in their French restaurant.  But, my impression of the property and service was very favorable and I would definitely consider this property again if I could find it at a good rate.

Final Grade: A+
