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.

Great One Night Stay

Booked the room for a trip to NYC to attend a squash tournament at Grand Central Station, visit friends, and dine. It was an ideal location for all 3 purposes. The room was clean, updated and actually spacious by NYC standards given the price. The staff was very helpful and upgraded us from queen to king without having to ask. The 6 subway line was right next door, very convenient. Very pleased with the stay.

Great location!

The room was fine, and the bed was comfortable. The housekeeping crew were very friendly and polite. I was disappointed that the room did not come with a coffee maker, refrigerator, or free wifi.

Facility Condition

It was comfortable except the room heater that stayed at 76 degrees no matter what we did to the t'stat. Good for window was operable. Shower had no pressure. The lobby is small and over crowded most of the time. Interior needs an upgrade. Having said that we have no major complaint. I will give this hotel 3 star not 4.

Dining tip: In Hotel

If you bring your car to the city, just find a reasonably priced parking and enjoy the city by walking and/or public transit. Find excellent and inexpensive meals on Third and Ninth Avenues midtown. Many museums are free on certain days.

Double Tree Metropolitan NYC - Best Value!!!

Having scoured numerous hotel sites for the best pricing, location, and overall value in midtown, I decided on the Double Tree Metropolitan and was not disappointed. My interactions w/ the staff at check-in, for room service, and for general inquiries were pleasant enough for my standards. The room with a King bed was clean and comfortable. Only issue was the noise from the firehouse across the street and the loud door slams from other guests. Still, even with the aforementioned annoyances, I'd want to come back and stay here for future trips in a heartbeat.
