Smart And Affordable: The MAve Boutique Hotel, New York City

by Andrea on February 9, 2013

A desire of many visitors to NYC is a well-located, fashionable hotel that won’t ruin their travel budgets. It’s a bonus if said hotel offers great service, comfortable beds, excellent amenities and breakfast. The MAve Hotel, named for the iconic avenue on which it is situated, is the perfect solution for both business and leisure travellers.

There was a time when I might have said that Flatiron wasn’t the most exciting part of New York to stay. These days, however, it’s a downright desirable location with heaps of great restaurants in the neighbourhood and easy access to both uptown and downtown. This is especially handy if you find yourself running around all over the city as we always are. You’ll always find a cab on Madison Avenue and the trains are very close to your front door.

Of course, all this means nothing if the room isn’t comfortable, but our room at The MAve was excellent. We had plenty of space, with ample storage room for our clothing and luggage, a great work desk and the Sealy Monogram ultra plush pillow-top mattress ensured a wonderful night’s sleep. The amenities were generous: complimentary WiFi and newspaper, soft bathrobes, 32-inch flat screen television, H2O Aquatics bath products, an iHome docking system,  delicious in-room coffee and tea, an ionic hair dryer, in-room safe and two telephones. Breakfast is included and room service is available from i Trulli’s Enoteca to Go. Guests have complimentary access to a gym and the hotel also offers valet parking. Pets are also welcome.

The staff at The MAve are friendly, welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate any requests we had during our stay. They arranged an excellent value private transfer for us to JFK on the day of our departure and also gave us a complimentary late checkout. Business travellers can take advantage of the same day dry cleaning and laundry service as well as corporate rates and easy access to all the businesses in Midtown and the rest of the city.

Excellent value boutique hotels like this are difficult to find in NYC. Next time you’re in the city, don’t miss out on The MAve.

I pass by this hotel numerous times during the week since my yoga studio is on 28th St. The funny part is reading about it here on your blog, when last week my yoga buddy and I walked into this hotel and asked if someone can show us around. We basically just wanted a tour of the place since we completely adore the boutique-feel and design of their lobby.

That’s funny! =) It’s definitely very compact inside, but we never spend much time at the hotel when we are in the city.

The place looks lovely and comfortable. A lot of places can be visited also around Madison Ave.

I love that they are pet friendly and offer free breakfast…that always helps cut down travel costs a bit! I’m going to look into using this hotel when my family comes into town…my NYC apartment is so tiny, it can only accommodate so many folks at a time;-)

You are making me regret my decision to skip a visit to NYC during my next trip to the US. This looks like a fantastic little boutique hotel!

Oh no, Jennifer! Is it too late to change plans?

Reply

Jennifer February 15, 2013 at 12:53 pm

Yes, I think so. I’m stopping in my hometown for the first time in 4 years. My parents would be devastated if I changed plans now.

I’m always a fan of properties with H2O toiletries. I try to stay up on all the hot hotels, especially in NYC, but this one got by me. Might be on our list for our trip in December:)

There are way too many to keep up with, DJ — every time I visit NYC there is a new batch =)

That mattress alone would win my heart. It sounds so comfy. :-)

It was! And who doesn’t need a good night’s rest after a day exploring NYC?

That looks like a great, fully functioning hotel. To get it at a reasonable price in one of the most expensive cities in the world is a real plus.

I agree — always tough to find high-quality, reasonably priced rooms in the Big Apple

I really like that location. It’s not too crazy busy but still has a lot to offer and is within walking distance of other great neighborhoods.

I agree, Stephanie – Flatiron is a handy location!
