My husband and I have just arrived home from our wedding/ honeymoon in NYC. We chose the Strand for it's central location, beautiful pictures and fantastic reviews and it definitely lived up to all of our expectations.
When we arrived we were greeted in the stunning lobby by well presented, extremely friendly staff. Our room, well what can we say, perfect size room, beautiful decor, giant bed, wonderful bathroom and a view to die for. We were in a room at the front of the building on 15th floor.
When the hotel staff found out we were getting married a beautiful bottle of wine was left in the room along with a lovely card from the manager. Although everyone went above and beyond at every occasion we want to give a big thanks to Dion at the front desk who stopped to chat about our wedding and time in New York and did everything he could to make our stay unforgettable.
The location is right in the centre of everything! A 2 minute walk gets you to Macy's, The Empire State Building, The NY Central Library, Bryant Park. Bryant Park was our particular favourite. We totally recommend getting a slice of pizza from one of the many pizzeria's and taking it to the park to enjoy in the sunshine, and watch the world go by.
This was the trip of a life time and The Strand Hotel and it's staff were a big part of that. We will definitely return and strongly recommend the hotel to friends.
