    Good

    I liked the location and enjoyed the friendly staff, .

    I did not like the fact that there is virtually no closet space or hangers.

    Very good

    Nice location, with a good service and the employees are really polite and helpful.

    The rooms are quite small and at night there were some disturbing noises of metal, like if someone was hammering the pipes.

    Exceptional

    The stuff was extremely helpful! The first room we got, was too noisy and small. The next day they offered another room which was super! Nice bed, spacious, clean, peaceful... Surprisingly the breakfast was delightful too! The receptionist was really helpful when organizing our trip back to the airport as well. Thank you for everything:)

    Very good

    Good quality for price paid, very well located, just 100 m from 86th street green line subway stop. The room was very cleaned and the staff has been very nice.

    The only thing to say is that the breakfast room is very small and sometimes you have to wait for a table to have your breakfast, but as you are on holiday I think that you can wait for a couple of minutes.

    Friendly staff, very clean, friendly atmosphere.

    A bit more healthy breakfast selection would have been nice- plain yogurt, more choice in types of fruit and juice

    Superb

    The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast and afternoon wine/cheese selections were more than adequate. Hotel is very convenient to subway stop and Lexington Ave. Room was very clean and nicely appointed.

    Public rooms and guest rooms were small.

    Exceptional

    As a person from Savannah, GA, The Franklin Hotel was very NYC to me. My daughter and I felt like we were staying in a "local" hotel not a chain that we could get any where in the US.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The overall appearance of the hotel was great. Everything very clean, staff extremely nice and helpful. They served free wine/cheese around happy hour time. They had the most comfortable pillows I every slept on. The rooms looked exactly like the website photo.

    The elevator and hallways were extremely hot. The regular room we got was very small (but still very elegant).

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Great location - nice neighborhood, near the subway, charming room. I stayed in a "petite guest room," which was more than adequate for a single traveler.

    The window air conditioner was loud and the narrow hallway was hot and stuffy. The continental breakfast was minimal.

  • 8.4
    Superb

    I liked the location, near Central Park and museums. The room was really clean.

    I did a reservation for a queensize room and when I checked in, they gave me another room more smaller. One day later, I asked for a room with a queensize bed and they changed me the room. This hotel offered a breakfast but there was few place to take it, (only six small tables) so several days we to took it outside the hotel.

    Superb

    Location and friendly staff are very good. Also we can take coffee or tea 24hours.

    Our room is clean and very comfortable, but little bit small.

    Good

    Location was very good. One block away from line 4-5-6 and on express stop 87th st and a few from central park. Too far to walk to city centre though, taxi about 11 usd. Clean rooms, smallish but cozy. Great bed and superb shower. Wifi works fine as well. Very friendly staff.

    A little expensive in my opinion, breakfast was ok but quite basic. Elevator sounds may be annoying for early evening or late morning sleepers.
