I stayed at the Sutton Court Residences from October 1st to November 6th and absolutely loved my stay.
From the get go the communication with the Sutton Court was second to none. I exchanged some mails and phone calls with Laysee who was so unbelievably helpful right off the bat. I felt like I was meeting a friend by the time I checked in!
When you enter the Sutton Court you are immediately greeted by a nicely decorated lobby area. With a long hallway that leads right down to the elevators to the various floors. Reception is near the entrance and on the left hand side. There was always someone there when I passed by and I was always greeted with a friendly hello, every time or I stopped for a chit chat when I had the time.
My room was a one bedroom apartment on the 20th floor. It has everything you could need and more. I had various family members visiting over the 5 weeks I was at the apartment so it was essential we had enough space. Which we did. The kitchen is well appointed and you really don't need to buy anything (other than food obviously!!) - There was washing up liquid, tablets for the dishwasher, cutlery including wine opener etc. You have a Fridge Freezer, cooker (with gas hob) toaster, microwave, bowls, cups, plates, pots, pans, oven dishes etc etc.
The bed was amazingly comfortable and so huge. You could fit three people in it! (oi, get your mind out of the gutter!) - But seriously, most comfortable bed I have slept on in years. The sofa bed was equally comfy. My visitors all raved at how comfy the sofa bed was.
The TV in the living room has HD channels and you have a full listing of all TV channels. You can also get radio channels too.
Wifi Router (per apartment) is also optional, at an extra cost, but I would recommend investing in this. I got (on average) between 6 mb and 10 mb per day. Peak times were the lower end.
I'm a regular to New York going at least once, sometimes twice, a year. I had not stayed in this area before or for this length of time. The location is pretty great with lots of nice eating areas within walking distances. I ordered take out from Real Thai a few times, which I would highly recommend. It's just across the road from the Sutton Court.
I highly recommend The Smith on 51st and 3rd. Seriously, you have to eat here. We ate here twice. Once for lunch and once for Brunch on Sunday. It gets very busy on Sundays so book or be prepared to wait a little. We sat at the bar for about 25 mins which wasn't too bad. It is so worth it. We also ate at the Ritz Diner on 60th and 1st Avenue. I enjoyed my lunch here but I was disappointed with the breakfast, if I'm honest. I also had a delivery from here one evening, and the food was cold.
We also had breakfast in the Comfort Diner located on E 45th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenue. I highly recommend this place. Pancakes are pretty good with real maple syrup included at no extra cost (a lot of diners charge extra for maple syrup these days). We also brought our own teabags (sorry New York I love you but your tea is shockingly bad!!) and the Comfort Diner provided us with cups of piping hot water at no cost.
The nearest Subway station to the Sutton Court is actually 60th and 3rd Avenue (the guides will say 59th and Lex). You can get the NQR and 456 from here. The Q, 4 and 5 are express trains.
All the staff were so great but a special mention to Julio, Manuela, James and Danny and a particular special mention to Laysee who treated me like and old friend and looked after me so well during my stay. Laysee, you're a star!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Sutton Court to anyone who is going to be in New York for more than 30 days. And in these days of legal minefields around illegal apartment rental you can be safe in the knowledge that the Sutton Court is 100% above board.
