This is a very nice hotel. Very modern and comfortable. The room was surprisingly big. The only negative aspect of the room was that the sink for the bathroom isnt in the bathroom, it is in the room. But the shower is very spacious. the view to Manhattan from the room is magnificant. The complimentary shuttle bus from the hotel to Manhattan is very convenient and only takes around 10mins depending on traffic in Manhattan. However be sure to check with reception staff as to when the bus leaves as the card said it left at 7.30am in the morning but didn´t leave until 8 and we had to catch a tour at 8.30 so we had to catch a further taxi to ensure we would arrive on time. the bar down stairs offers a nice breakfast for $10 per person plus tax´s. If you are looking for a nice place to eat close to the hotel walk down to vernon street, there are a multitude of restaurants. I wish we found this street sooner rather than going back into Manhattan every night. This hotel is wonderful and I would highly recommend it.
