Striking modernist Midtown East hotel with rich, colorful history
The blue façade of the Doubletree Metropolitan Hotel New York City, shaped like a rolling wave, makes it hard to miss. The lobby reflects a contemporary version of 1960s chic. The earth-toned rooms feel warm and modern. The hotel is a historic landmark, and amenities such as 24-hour business and fitness centers meet the needs of today's travelers.
Highlights
  • Complimentary 24-hour fitness center
  • Easy walk to Fifth Avenue shopping, Rockefeller Center and more
  • Two blocks from Citigroup Center and Madison Avenue
Rooms

Expect rooms decorated in soothing earth tones with down-filled duvets and triple sheeting on the beds. Amenities include Internet access and flat-screen TVs with complimentary HBO. The slate and limestone bathrooms have Neutrogena bath amenities. Junior suites include a seating area, and some have a pullout sofa and balcony. PURE allergy-friendly rooms are a draw for travelers with allergies or asthma. PURE rooms are cleaned with anti-allergy cleaners and have improved air quality.

 

Features

The Doubletree Metropolitan is the largest Doubletree hotel in the United States.

Renowned modernist architect Morris Lapidus originally designed the hotel. The hotel was designated a historical landmark in 2005. Marilyn Monroe made history here in 1955 while filming for the "Seven-Year Itch." Monroe was posing in front of the hotel when a gust of air from a subway grate blew up the skirt of her white halter dress.

Dining

Met Grill, off the main lobby, serves breakfast until 11 a.m. daily. The menu features a la carte selections and a breakfast buffet. Room service is available. Off-site restaurants offer a variety of food within easy walking distance. Brasserie for French food, Pescatore for Italian, Dos Caminos for Mexican and Smith and Wollensky steakhouse are within four blocks.

Parking and Coffee

This is a fine place for the price. In a perfect world, I wouldn't have to pay $55/night to park and $12/morning for coffee.

fits the bill

the hotel has been updated nicely and is close to the subway. Rooms are on the smallish side, but not claustrophobic. Staff is friendly enough and will give you two of their great choco-chip cookies if you're noce!

Average hotel

Was only there for one night. The room was small but a good price for the city. Woke up with the toilet leaking. I would not recommend it for an extended stay.
