I travel to New York at least every two months. I am currently finishing up an 11 night stay and as usual I am at the Verve Hotel. And as usual the experience was excellent. The room is very nice and about twice the size of a room in Manhattan. The stay included a free Continental breakfast - a true Continental breakfast unlike those places that have only have a collection of stale donuts - eggs, bacon or sausage, cereal, waffles, fruit, danishes, bagels, coffee, juice, etc. It also has free, reliable internet - a must for a business traveler - and it is located 5 minutes from 2 major subway stops and 15 minutes from midtown Manhattan. It also has a free washer and dryer which is a definite plus on long trips.
But it is the service that makes the stay enjoyable. The staff at the Verve are excellent. They go out of their way to make your trip pleasant. I arrived on a Sunday and the owner/manager was having a small BBQ for his employees on the back deck. They insisted I join them and it was like being back at home. I will let you in on a secret - the first couple of trips to NYC were fun, even though it is a work trip. Now it is just time away from my family. But being able to stay at a place were they truly make you welcome makes all the difference in my trip. Thanks Pete, Tom, Josh, Justin, Allen, May, and everyone else at the Verve. See you in August.
