St. Giles Hotel New York

Feb 1, 2011
2011 / February 2011

Arrival/Check-in: I arrived at St. Giles Hotel – The Court earlier than expected, and my room was not available. Although I had no problem with simply checking in and leaving my bag at the hotel for the day, the manager on duty and the director of accommodations were gracious enough to accommodate me with a beautiful top-floor corner suite. Since I was in New York for a small family gathering, this actually worked out to our benefit; we were all able to gather in my room for an evening of dinner and socializing. (25/30)

Guest Quarters: The suite was generously appointed with a very open, pseudo-retro feel and boxy furnishings. The ample, oversized lights cast a comfortable tone over the generous seating, which consisted of a sectional sofa and chairs in the living area and a full dining area with seating for eight people. In-room entertainment included a music system and wall-mounted wide-screen televisions in the living area and sleeping quarters. The color scheme was a mixture of warm reds and browns. The suite also had a side room, where the hotel set up snacks and beverages. It was an excellent use of space, although a beverage/bar sink was noticeably absent. (28/30)

Services/Amenities: The staff at every level accommodated my needs as though I were a resident. The Court is located next door to a sister property, St. Giles Hotel – The Tuscany, which offers more in-house dining options. This is also where the gym is located, with state-of-the-art fitness and cardio equipment. The Court has a beautiful lobby lounge, LexBar, offering a very contemporary feel and signature drinks. Between the lobby and LexBar is a comfortable seating area featuring a gas fireplace, a good place for more intimate conversation. Icon breakfast room offers substantial morning fare and a unique outdoor patio. (38/40)

The Experience: Located in Murray Hill, St. Giles is a superb stepping stone for all Manhattan, close to Grand Central Terminal and walking distance from Fifth Avenue, Times Square and Rockefeller Center. I was more than comfortable and pleased with my visit, thanks to the attentiveness of all the staff I encountered.

Total Score: 91/100

Ulysses, a New Hotel by Ash, Opens in Baltimore

Hotelier Ash welcomes its fourth hotel, Ulysses, to its collection. Situated in Mount Vernon, Baltimore, the 116-room hotel features an all-day café and late-night drinking parlor. The new hotel lies within the historic, nine-story Latrobe Building, a former 1912 apartment building with an early Italian Renaissance design. The hotel earns its name, Ulysses, from a ship that brought Bavarian immigrants to Baltimore at the turn of the century. The name also pays homage to James Joyce’s legendary and revolutionary novel and to the Greek hero, Odysseus.
