The Sutton Place is elegant and ideally located just a stone's throw from great shopping and restaurants. Gerard, the lounge in the hotel is dark and cozy and a wonderful place to just kill some time, away from all the bustle. We were there during the Christmas season and the lobby is wonderfully decorated and the staff friendly and competent no matter how busy things got. We booked a King Executive suite which was wonderful -- a full living room and separate King bedroom which was perfect for having another couple over for a drink in the room before heading out for dinner. My only concern - and it was really just a fleeting thought - was the lack of security both for the underground parking lot and inside the hotel. It's a busy hotel right downtown and unlike almost every other hotel I've been in over the last few years, it seemed that everywhere was accessible to everyone....we had no problems at all, but did think it was a bit unusual.
