Hotel 57 is one of the best hotels I've stayed at for the price. It was a great value. We had a double room that was very clean, comfy beds, and while small (most NYC hotels are) was spacious enough for two adults with luggage. The only thing missing was a full-length mirror. The free continental breakfast was great. They served good coffee and food, it was perfect for saving a little more money for shopping especially if you are someone who doesn't have a huge morning appetite like me. I was able to fill my water, grab coffee or tea, and get some fruit. If I was being more leisurely I probably would have indulged in more of the food options.

A great hotel to stay in that is not tourist trap area but still in the heart of the city. Great rooms very comfortable and good amenities. The staff is both friendly and helpful. A wonderful place to stay, especially if you want explore the city or remember why you came here.
Do not book if you are under 21 Years Old.

In New York this May or may not be an actual law. What it is definitely is a crazy way to run a hotel business.
I can book this hotel on booking.com.
I can pay my money.
However, if this is for my son he can turn up at the hotel and be refused access to the hotel that I have paid in full for him.
Okay so you want to have these silly little rules which make no sense in a country where you can drive aged 16. Get married. Have children. Buy a fully functioning machine gun aged 18……
You can fight for your country in Vietnam aged 19….
However, you can stay alone in a hotel under the age of 21.
And if I had not found this out by ringing the hotel then my son would have no where to stay and I would have lost £1500 / ?? 1820.
So here’s an idea. Rename the hotel 21 to 57 to give people a vague idea all under 21s are banned from entry without someone 21 staying with them.
Good experience overall

Big room with balcony at reasonable price, great location, staff were helpful. Breakfast was bare bones, stale croissant and muffins. Rooms lacked amenities such as fridge. Noisy even on 15th floor, but that is NYC.
Finally an update to an earlier review
Jun 06, 2022
I stayed at Hotel 57 in March, first visit to the hotel. My experience included pros and cons - at the top of the list of pros was Jennifer at the front desk, who was very kind and helpful from the minute I walked in the door. She is a keeper! The housekeeping staff was lovely and one of the doormen went out of his way to hail a cab for me when I was leaving while roads were closed/rerouted and there was traffic chaos after the NYC half marathon (I think that's what was going on) - unfortunately I did not get his name. Also, the classic NYC old-fashioned feeling restaurant next door had a surprising gluten free menu filled with yummy options, and as a celiac that was a wonderful surprise. The hotel location is great too. Cons were basically similar to what other visitors have mentioned. After I posted an initial negative review here because I had no luck getting someone to contact me regarding issues and questions I had, management then was very responsive and I appreciate their efforts. I would consider staying at Hotel 57 again.
