We stayed here for our silver wedding in August for five nights. The staff were all very friendly & welcoming & the room was spotless & had a fantastic view of the Manhattan Skyline. Upon arrival, our room was adorned with two lovely swans on the bed & rose petals also covering the bed & around the bath & a bottle of champagne was there ready too. It really was so romantic! Breakfast was simple & on a help yourself basis & there was ample to choose from for our needs. Manhattan was easily accessible by subway which was just a few blocks from our hotel. We managed it with a weekly Metrocard. The neighbourhood is up & coming & in the process of being developed. I imagine that in the coming years, there will be a lot more on offer locally. So if you want to have more spending money & don't mind a short hop to the city, then this hotel is for you. I would highly recommend it!
