The rooms here are a highlight. Sizable for New York City and extremely comfortable, with an understated decor. The bathrooms are large and not understated - a fun, Art Deco vibe complete with black and white tile floors and a walk-in shower. Plenty of closet space and hangers, a selection of upscale magazines and consistent wifi.
The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. You're not talking trendy here and it's a hike to most of the city's tourist attractions, with the happy exception of Central Park just down the block. But it's great walking down Madison Ave and window shopping at any time of day or night.
Restaurant selection in the immediate vicinity is relatively limited and pricy, but by venturing east and north you can find more casual options. The hotel has an expensive restaurant that draws an older, moneyed crowd and a bar that's crowded with local 30-something socialite types and Eurotrash. We amused ourselves for 45 mins one night having a drink in the lobby and watching the parade of older women in too short skirts and younger women in too tight dresses teeter in stilettos up and down the stairs to the mezzanine level restroom serving both the bar and restaurant.
Overall a very pleasant stay and I would return.
