This hotel has the friendliest & most helpful staff we have ever met. I can't say enough good things about the entire front desk team who gave us lots of good advice on getting around the city & tips to improve our visit. Our room was very large (king bed, full size sofa plus an arm chair) & all comfortable & clean. Breakfast included hot & cold items with different eggs & meat selections each day we were there plus fresh fruit. The coffee machine is available all the time.
The only possible negative is how close the elevated subway trains are to the hotel. Our window faced the trains and I thought the noise would keep me awake, but it never did. Guess I walked so much I was too tired to hear the train! I expect if you had a room on the opposite side of the hotel, this would not be an issue.
We walked from the hotel to Central Park across the Queensboro bridge which is an interesting experience. Took about an hour including photo stops.
We will be back for sure. Thanks to Tom for the subway navigation lesson - we never got lost or on the wrong train.
