Andaz 5th Avenue

Hot on the heels of Andaz Wall Street—the Hyatt subsidiary’s first NYC hotel—comes a midtown sibling strategically placed for an upscale shopping spree. Expect the same generous in-room perks (free Wi-Fi, complimentary minibar treats) and a sleek, loft-like spin on the spacious, user-friendly accommodations we loved at the downtown property, plus a locally skewed restaurant, The Shop at Andaz 5th Avenue. Rooms: 184.

I have been to the Andaz on a couple of different occasions, however, neither have involved the food or staying in the actual hotel.  My review is solely for the cafe and the event space. 


Since the Andaz is right around the block from my office, I have popped in numerous times to grab coffee with colleagues and friends.  They brew Cafe Grumpy coffee which is brewed at a number of different cafes, including Cafe Grumpy itself, around the city.  Cafe Grumpy is an equivalent to Stumptown Coffee, maybe even a step down.  However, the Andaz chooses to charge $6 for a latte, when you can get the same thing at Cafe Grumpy for less.  


As for the event space, I was pleasantly content with how everything came out.  There were signs in the lobby directing the party to the 2nd floor where we had a couple of private rooms, with a bar for just our party.  The servers were great, continuously coming out with different appetizers such as duck spring rolls (my fave), mini falafel pitas, crab meat and avocado on a cracker, etc.  I hope to be back for another event at the Andaz, and hope to try their food the next time i visit.
