AAA Inspector Notes
Rooms are on the small side but sleek and well appointed. Those with a penchant for Old World charm (i.e., hardwood floors, crown molding and mosaic tile flooring) will really like this place. Designed by James Renwick, the very same architect behind St. Patrick's Cathedral, this turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts building was originally built as a gentlemen's club for the moneyed set, hence the name 'man's field.' But now, The Mansfield welcomes guests of every stripe, most of whom come for a taste of old New York. Just off the main lobby, the M Bar is a quintessential city venue for classic cocktails. Smoke free premises. 126 units. 13 stories, interior corridors.

Pros: Great location, close to everything. The staff are friendly and helpful.
Cons: An old building with window AC units, mine blew right on me on the bed, so either I sweltered, or was freezing. I've stayed here for years and seen the prices triple without seeing any resulting upgrades, and in fact, they used to offer a light breakfast as well, so prices up, and services down.

Pros: The historic building is beautiful and an excellent location for all the sights and the library and free coffees all day are great. Kellari restaurant opposite is great.
Cons: The aircon units are old and very noisy, we could not hear a TV over the sound of the aircon unit and it was not possible to sleep with it on, so that made it very hot in warm weather in September. I can imagine this is a common issue for old buildings in New York but it's not nice and makes me want to book a modern hotel next time. One of our party moved rooms and it was a bit better for her (still not great), we stayed in our original room and just left the aircon off. The concierge was too pushy about bus tours. The rooms need much much more light. It was really dark (mood lighting) and we all had to check our make up again outside because we couldn't see properly to apply it due to poor light. The rooms had no tea and coffee making facility and no water which did affect us because it was hot weather and the aircon was too loud to use. We felt for the price that they could have provided bottled water but when we asked at reception they said we could only buy fizzy water from the bar so we had to go to a nearby newsagents to buy bottled water for our room. This was my second visit to the hotel, I came with my husband 10 years ago. I feel like it was not so good this time which is a shame. These things did not ruin our trip and are not awful but I feel they could be addressed and improved for other guests so that's why I have left a review.
