I just wanted to express how grateful we are that Morgans hotel upgraded us from a regular 1 bedroom suite to a balcony suite for free. To start, the normal suite was not very expensive, I assume, because the hotel is going through minor lobby renovation.
But then we found out that we were upgraded to a balcony suite: We ended up in this beautiful one-bedroom apartment with spectacular views of Manhattan on every side and access to two private balconies, with the most amazing view of the Empire State building. It was right there, in front of us. If you have the option of booking this suite, I strongly recommend it. Although we had a lot to do in town, it pained us to have to leave the suite and not spend the entire weekend on our balcony.
The other main feature of the hotel is that it is walking distance from both train stations. Grand Central is 4 blocks and Penn is about 15 minutes away. Provided you have small luggage, then getting to and from is no problem at all.
As regards the hotel itself: I won't rehash everything stated by everyone else. The suite was very comfortable, clean and well-appointed. The decor is really awesome with a black, grey and white motif, plush carpet, fridge, nice bathroom. AC worked great. Our shower was very nice and we have a whirlpool tub.
Breakfast was great, service was perfect. Everyone was uber-professional, polite and helpful.
We had one of our best weekends in the City, thanks in large part to our stay here.
