I'm impressed. The Jewel facing Rockefeller Center is just that: a boutique hotel on the north side of Rockefeller Center that is perfectly positioned, wonderfully fitted out, and reasonably priced.

With 135 rooms, from singles to two-room suites with kitchenettes (and some corporate apartments for longer stays), it's just the right size.

The location could not be better: just a half-block west of busy Fifth Avenue on quieter 51st Street (map), it enjoys views along that street and into Rockefeller Center.

A lot of careful thought has been put into the design of the rooms, from the ergonomic chairs at the desk/table to the multitude of power outlets readily accessible by table and bedside (no grovelling on the floor to find one). The windows open a crack for real-air ventilation and city sounds. Small empty refrigerator for whatever you want to cool (drinks and snacks are available for order), free coffee and tea, microwave oven, iPod dock/clock radio, two-line speakerphone, both wireless and cable Internet connections—for free.

The Jewel is comfy, stylish, state-of-the-art and clever all at once.

A room-service menu book lists dishes available for delivery from nearby restaurants at moderate prices (The Jewel does not have a restaurant), and guests at The Jewel have access to its sister hotel, Club Quarters, next door, with its quite nice guests-only Terrace Club restaurant featuring indoor and outdoor terrace dining.

The Living Room is a guest lounge on the 2nd floor with easy chairs, TV, newspapers, travel brochures, books, games, Internet-connected computer workstations and printers for guests' use (check in for your flight and print your boarding pass!), and complimentary coffee and tea.

Fitness equipment can be delivered to your guest room at no charge.

An especially convenient feature is the provision for early check-in and late check-out. For a small fee, and with a reservation, you can check in as early as breakfast time, or delay your departure until mid-afternoon.

Room rates drop dramatically on weekends. Check rates and room availability here.
