It's a shame that this hotel doesn't have much going on around it, because it's a pretty great hotel. Quick check in, lovely spacious room, complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic drinks in the fridge. The bathroom was great, and the shower and toiletries were really nice. I especially appreciated the buttons next to the bed that allowed you to adjust lighting and open/close the blackout blinds (you don't get a better sleep than with blackout blinds!). Food was great - pricey, but c'mon - NYC hotel food is never ever cheap.
Heads up - hotel is hard to locate - no prominent signage and it's next to a luxury apartment building. Super easy to walk into the wrong place.
I stayed here for business and was honestly disappointed that I didn't have more time to use the gym, facilities, etc. Again - kind of boring location at first glance, but I must say I didn't research the immediate blocks around the hotel. Maybe there's more around than I realize.
