Across the street from the MOMA, Central Park and Fifth Ave. just a few blocks away, this hotel offers one of the best locations in NYC. Travelled with wife and kid, the room was decent size, but it did not have a nice view. The lobby is kind of small, but the second floor lounge area is large and very chic, so I recommend to go up and enjoy a bit for a relaxing lounge time. The old Hollywood glamour and history is a nice plus to experience at this hotel. The staff was always professional and attentive. I even had to extend our visit by a couple of days and they were very serviceable with my request despite the fact that they were busy and I had booked on-line with a consolidator. Overall a very good experience.
