Editorial review:

This Italian-influenced hotel has spacious rooms, great amenities, and marble bathrooms. The service is impeccable and low-key, and a free continental breakfast is served. The lobby is nothing special, though. The Italian restaurant is rather good.

                  The european feel of the rooms and hotel. Pink couches:) *deep bath tub *warm carpeting

                  *no wet bar in the bar area(room 701) *a bit of a cold draft coming through the heating vent and had to cover the in draft with towels(not a big deal as curtains were closed all the time but thought I would comment just the same as some travellers may not have liked that).

                  We spent 3 nights at the Michelangelo, and we must say we had a blast! The hotel reminded us of luxury from the 70's, with marble, gold and red velvet in the lobby. We were upgraded to a suite in celebration of our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and knowledgeable. Location was perfect!!!!

                  Ventalation system connects different rooms, so noise and smoke can come through from other guests.

                  The room was awesome and the house keeping staff was exceptional.

                  Breakfast for two hours only and on Saturday and Sunday not until 8 am. We get up at six and there was no where to get coffee. The concierge was never available and when we asked for assistance, we were told he would be in at 11 am.

                  They were very accomodating to our 19 month old son and the bell man helped us everytime we took our stroller up & down the stairs. I like the fact they folded down our beds before bedtime.

                  I kinda wish there was a direct ramp to the outside (accessible for our stroller). I felt bad using the bellman luggage/handicap elevator & sometimes they weren't always around to have access to it. Also, our concierge mapped out the wrong way to the Children's Museum and it costed us a $35 ride and we end up taking a taxi cab to the right destination. Maybe he was in a hurry to show us...who knows..

                  The hotel was just perfect for my daughter and I for a weekend visit. Perfect location in the theatre district. It was so clean and beautiful. The room was very luxurious and the staff were very professional and courteous. The only problem was that our cell phone and internet/cell access did not work form our room, but the hotel comped us the usual $12.99/day internet fee to connect to their wireless.

                  Excellent location and very comfortable. Room was great and the bed very good.

                  Bathroom was very dated and looking like it was in need of a refurbishment

                  Nice hotel, room very clean. Location is perfect, close to Broadway and central park. Apart from the concierge, the staff was not very nice.

                  The staff was outstanding and friendly; made us feel like we were at home in the city. The location can't be beat. The hotel was charming and comfortable.
