The best thing about Hotel Vetiver is its location two quick subway stops away from Lexington and 59th in Manhattan. I chose it over the slightly posher Holiday Inn across the street because the Vetiver provides free breakfast. Our room, however, lacked some basic amenities, like a reading light, nightstand, and desk. While the mattress and pillows were comfortable, the bed was made with only one thin coverlet, and we had to ask for more covers. The desk staff was consistently helpful. The catering staff needed to be more attentive to the small, crowded breakfast room.
Would I stay here again? Yes, because of the location and reasonable price (for NYC). But first, I would check out the other nearby hotels, including one that is being built right across the street.
