The Jewel facing Rockefeller Center lives up to its name. Opened in 2010, this boutique gem of a hotel is right across the street from Rockefeller Center, Midtown's crown jewel. At 30 Rockefeller Plaza--also known as 30 Rock--you can ride the elevator to the Top of the Rock Observation Deck for absolutely breathtaking views. When you're back on ground level, take the NBC Studio Tour, shop the Center's stylish boutiques, and stop for a gourmet sandwich and pastry at Bouchon Bakery.
Shoppers will appreciate the Jewel's proximity to fashionable Fifth Avenue, just a half-block away. Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store is a 5-minute walk. Stroll a few blocks north along the Avenue to elegant Bergdorf Goodman, or indulge your kids (or your inner child) with a visit to the FAO Schwarz toy store at Fifth Avenue and 58th Street. When evening comes, see a show at Radio City Music Hall, around the corner from the Jewel, or at one of the dozens of Broadway theaters within a half-mile.
Take time to dine at the private, indoor/outdoor Terrace Club, next door to the Jewel, with views of St. Patrick's Cathedral and Rockefeller Center (hotel guests must show their room key). For culinary branching-out, the sky's the limit: at least a dozen highly rated restaurants crowd the perimeters of Rockefeller Center.
Indulgences abound at the Jewel, which spoils guests with free amenities. Business travelers and Internet hounds will appreciate the workstations throughout the hotel. Complimentary wired and wireless Internet access and printing make it easy to reconnect or catch up on work. There is a bar/lounge to relax in and complimentary chilled, filtered water is available at water stations on each floor, with bottles provided for refills. The onsite Lizarran tapas restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, serving authentic Spanish dishes in a chic and relaxed atmosphere. Guests can also enjoy room service. A 24-hour fitness center is ready for your extra energy, or you can request that exercise equipment be delivered to your room.
The Jewel's sophisticated, comfortable guestrooms (most with floor-to-ceiling windows) feature state-of-the-art work areas with complimentary wireless and wired high-speed Internet access. LCD TVs provide multimedia connectivity. Bathrooms are stocked with British Gilchrist & Soames products.
