An intimate hotel with just 39 rooms, the Gem Hotel - Midtown West is a 5-minute walk from the Javits Convention Center. The hotel is nestled on a relatively quiet street west of Midtown in a neighborhood sometimes referred to as Hell's Kitchen. Once one of the city's roughest neighborhoods, today's revitalized Hell's Kitchen bears little resemblance to its past or the images conjured by its fiery name. This newly hip neighborhood--also known as Clinton--is now home to renovated brick warehouses and lofts that house theaters, bars, and a diverse selection of restaurants. If you're visiting on a weekend, join the bargain-hunters seeking unique merchandise at the Hell's Kitchen Outdoor Flea Market, 3 blocks north. Parking is available nearby (surcharge).
While the less-trafficked Midtown West location will give you a buffer from the throngs of sightseers swarming central Midtown, the heart of New York City action is less than a 20-minute walk away in Times Square. Surrounding Times Square is the Theatre District, where you can catch Tony Award–winning shows in iconic Broadway theaters. The heart of Manhattan's visual-arts scene can be found just south of the hotel in Chelsea, home to hundreds of galleries showcasing established and up-and-coming artists.
Traveling farther afield? Penn Station, a 10-minute walk from the hotel, provides direct access to the city's extensive subway system. At Madison Square Garden, adjacent to the station, you can catch a Knicks or Rangers game, a championship boxing showdown, or a big-name concert.
When you're ready to bed down for the night, you'll return to a quiet, cleanly designed guestroom. You can plan your next day via complimentary wireless Internet access, available throughout the Gem. Your guestroom also features an LCD TV with Showtime and pay movies. The coffeemaker comes with premium Wolfgang Puck blends, and bottled water is complimentary. The bathroom has some perks you'd find at more-expensive hotels: monogrammed bathrobes and Gilchrist & Soames luxury amenities. Connect your iPod to the docking station, and drift off to your favorite tunes. And you can rest assured: This New York hotel is smoke-free.

Some of NYC’s best-known landmarks are north of 14th and south of 59th—or Midtown Manhattan. Its western half is home to Manhattan's largest venues: the Javits Center and Madison Square Garden. In the Garment District, designers try to stay a cut above fashion's latest trends. Nearby, Hell's Kitchen is hot thanks to Restaurant Row. In one block on West 46th, diners can dash from Bangkok to Brazil.see all hotels in New York

"Fair price, average hotel"
Reasonable prices for an ok hotel. But it's a bit of a walk from public transportation, and not a very inspiring neighbourhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved way better than I expectedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in an ok location. The room was a bit small, but it didn't bother me other than the fact that it was in the BASEMENT!!! We were told that it was the only room in the whole hotel that only had one bed.It was the only room down there in the hotel staff quarters. There were racks with hangers on them by the door. The staff were going in and […] out of the door to the steps, which were located right next to our door, all night. The worst part of our stay was when we realized our shower did not work. Me and my boyfriend both tried for 10 minutes to get the shower to turn on, and when we called the front desk we were told that they don't know how to work the showers because they don't use them. I do not reccomend anyone stay at this hotel!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by The GEM Hotel - Midtown West, an Ascend Collection hotel We have a single room in our lower level. It is not a basement. The room has a full window that opens to the courtyard, not below ground. We are currently reorganizing the space next to the room and some items may have been left out in the open, however, no where it would affect any guests. The shower does work in this and all of our rooms and all of our staff are fully versed on the operations of all items in every room.
Great facility, ok location but price & quality of facility make up for the walk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great stay, clean and comfortable"
My girlfriend and I stayed here 1.6.2011. We were in town to see Chicago and decided to find an in-expensive hotel for the night. The price was very cheap for the hotel quality. The front desk agent identified us by name at arrival and called our room shortly after check-in to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The room was very modern and […] clean. The room size is average for the area. The only minus was our remote was broken. I would recommend taking a cab in and out of the hotel due to surrounding traffic. There's a gas station at the corner which makes getting a cab super fast! All in all a very nice stay. Thank you! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Clean room and prompt service in the middle of manhattan. We will use this hotel again. Rooms are small, but that's common for NYC. Good choice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
