We stayed for a week in early July--two adults and a teen on a rollaway in a Madison King room. This room is very large--tons of room for yoga, and is quietly luxurious as noted by previous reviewers, with a fabulously comfortable bed and pillows (although the rollaway was not so great--why do they charge $50/night for these?), thick towels, a remote that controls every electronic item in the room, including the blind, etc. We loved the room. The bathroom was equally beautiful, except that the shower is badly designed so that every time you get out of the shower there is a mini-flood on the bathroom floor--very bizarre and annoying, given how carefully designed the other elements of the room and bathroom are. We didn't like the spotty room service, which sometimes left clean water and wine glasses and sometimes didn't, as well as sometimes leaving Maison du Chocolat macarons and sometimes not. You'd expect consistency and thoroughness at a hotel like this. We also didn't much enjoy the lobby, which is very Esme Squalor--that is--loudly and painfully stylish, with rather unfriendly reception and a very silly bar (go and see it yourself if you have a chance--it's worth it for the wow, that's just silly factor). However, the doormen were all very nice, and the location makes almost anything at all worth it. What a fantastic spot, especially in the summer when the trees are in full leaf. Central Park is half a block, the Frick is a few blocks south, the Met is three blocks north, and the best espresso I've ever had at Saint Ambroeus is around the corner. Plenty of buses and cabs, as well as a subway stop nearby. It was always a joy after a long day walking around the city to come back to this quiet and beautiful street and to the cool, heavenly room.
