Let me preface this review by saying that ordinarily we would have never been able to afford this place. This hotel was way out of price range, but we signed up for the Hyatt credit card and got two free nights. Talk about getting our money's worth. We visited between Christmas and New Year's when the smallest rooms go for over $500/night.
The staff could have put us in a regular room since we were redeeming for free nights, but instead they updated us to an absolutely incredible mini-apartment (at least that's what I'm calling it!). Giant living room, giant bedroom, giant bathroom, ceilings at least 20 feet high, TVs everywhere, huge open windows with a ledge you can sit on, comfortable bed, FREE SNACKS (major brownie points!) -- it was incredible. New York is known for being cramped, but our room was wide open.
This was most definitely the trendiest, most fancy hotel we've ever stayed at outside of Vegas. And such a great location too, right across the street from the New York Public Library and Bryant Park (which is great during the holidays when the ice rink is set up).
We couldn't have asked for a better stay!
