My family and I (3 people in all), stayed at this hotel at the end of October. We checked in on a Sunday and checked out the following Tuesday. Even though it was only a two night stay, this hotel really impressed me. The lobby is small and quaint. Elegant yet nothing too fancy. Unlike what many people say in these reviews, the bellmen/doormen were very polite. Upon checkin, we were upgraded to a sky view room on the 26th floor and given a complimentary 2pm late checkout (this is because we are a member of the ihg rewards club, which I highly recommend joining. The rewards are great!). The front desk staff is awesome. They are so willing to help you with anything you may need and are all extremely nice. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The beds are super comfy and the bathroom is really nice! I especially like the shower! The room is much larger than the average NYC hotel room. Now the view was probably the best city view I've ever had. I was breathtaking. We slept with the curtains open because we just couldn't get enough of it. We could even see a little of the river. The concierge was more than helpful. He recommended a restaurant to us and made our reservations. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had!
The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. It's pretty much in Times Square but without the hustle and bustle/noise! It's on a quieter part of 44th street but just a few hundred yards down the road you are right in the middle of Times Square. There is also a major subway station directly below the hotel so it's super convenient and easy to get anywhere in the city without doing much walking! I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here next time I'm in NYC.
