This is my first stay in an Andaz hotel. I very much prefer it to W. It is not as gimmicky. My room was superb. Very tall ceiling and very large by any standard. Views of the library. Great amenities. Wonderful shower. Ipod docking station. The work area is very useful. The only quibb is the size of the open wardrobe.
I would have no hesitation at all to stay here again.
Superb location in mid town on 5th Ave.
