I stayed in this hotel for three nights for a conference just a few days after Hurricane Sandy hit us in NYC. I arrived feeling pretty sad, stressed and overwhelmed. Arriving at the New Haven Hotel was a pleasure. I had called earlier to let them know I would be coming in on a later train due problems getting out of the city. The staff was extremely warm and welcoming when I came in, and kindly asked about the state of Manhattan. It was so nice to be greeted with care and concern.
I stayed in room 622, which I absolutely loved. The bed was a very comfortable king, and there was a very pretty couch to relax on after a long day of business. The work station was also excellent: very large and comfortable with plenty of places to plug in and charge up my phone/laptop/MP3. There was also a huge flatscreen television and a super user-friendly DVD player, which came in quite handy for a presentation I needed to fine-tune involving a video showing. Also, there is a smaller desk on wheels that was very nice for some of the smaller projects I needed to do directly on my computer.
The decor was also very nice: warm color on the walls, rich dark wood headboard and furniture, and a comfy blue mod couch with great lighting. I was also really pleased with the sheer amount of space in the room. My colleagues stayed in a similarly priced hotel a block away, and I felt for the money, I had the far more spacious and comfortable room.
The staff was lovely during check-in and check-out, and they were great about recommending local restaurants when I needed to get delivery.
The only things I think I missed were some firmer pillows (the ones they had were VERY squishy) and a tub. The stand-up shower was great, but I think after a long day working, it might have been nice to have a bath!
Overall, I would highly recommend the New Haven Hotel, especially those traveling on business. Expect a large, newly renovated room, great service, and a very comfortable stay.
Rooms that are higher up have a bit nicer view and are not exposed as much to the nearby rooftop hea...
