Our room was modern, clean, and surprisingly quiet. The location is great - close to Central Park, 5th Ave shopping, and a short walk from Columbus Circle. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The drinks in the bar were excellent and we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. And there's a Momofuku Milk Bar in the lobby! Fantastic sweets, plus I stopped down in the mornings for some great coffee. Our Queen Standard room was pretty small, but we knew that going into it because rooms are detailed on the website.
On the downside, I was disappointed when I saw that the bathroom had a frosted glass door on it. Yes, it looks cool, but it's heavy to open and close, and does not provide as much privacy as a standard door. The door didn't face the bed and seating area, which helped, but I still was not happy with the situation. But the fantastic shower helped to make up for the door!
