The Palace is in a fantastic location. Close enough to some of the major attractions of New York (Time Square, Rockefeller Center, etc) but still far enough away to enjoy to not overwhelm first time visitors. The staff is amazing. We came from another big city and another famous hotel and the Palace staff, by far, blew the other hotel staff out of the water. They treat you like you are family. They even gave my 18 month old daughter a little Palace teddy bear. And all this happened before we even got to our room which was immaculate and large for a NYC hotel room. Beds are super comfortable. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, business, families, or just weekend vacationers.
