We stayed here primarily because British airways had a good deal on it and it ranks highly on TA.
It's located right in the middle of the tourist area and is ideal if you want to walk places although there is the subway close by as well. It's ten minutes walk to Times Square, half an hour or so to Central Park and just five minutes to the Empire State or grand central station.
Check in was a breeze and our request for a quiet room was met superbly. We heard the occasional siren but that was about it and considering its location near to Times Square, grand central and the Empire State Building we were really surprised how well we slept. The room itself was nicely furnished, well maintained and clean with a boutique feel to it. Nice extras like large screen tv, touch sensitive lighting controls and electric blinds. There is a mini bar which is complimentary for water and soft drinks and there are good quality toiletries in the bathroom. Wi-if was free as well which is a welcome extra. The only downsides were the room seemed dark even with all the lights on and there's no coffee making facilities in room although you can request a kettle to borrow. Also, as seems to be the rage at the moment, the shower room has no doors so if you're travelling with a friend make it a very good friend.
We ate in the restaurant twice and this we enjoyed. The food was reasonably well priced and there was a decent choice. The service was fantastic, very friendly, professional and prompt. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. It's worth noting as well that there is complimentary coffee served in the foyer in the morning and wine at night which we thought was a nice touch.
Most of the staff were great. Requests were dealt with quickly and courteously and with a smile. There was also a little free gift when we left.
We would not hesitate to recommend it but remember to ask for a quiet room.
