I travel to NY several times a year for business and my first choice hotel is always the Setai. Over the years i have stayed in most if not all of the top end hotels in mid town and I think the Setai beats all the others hands down. I travel quite a bit as part of my job and I can say this is the only hotel I actually look forward to visiting Highlights for me that make the Setai special:
The hotel is not pretending to be a nightclub.
The rooms are well decorated and of good size for NYC, it actually feels like home away from home.
All the staff are exceptional. they are always polite and co-operative.
The bar is sophisticated and well laid out. Service is great.
The food through the hotel (Al Fiori, Bar on 5th and room service) are all v good.
I have stayed here a dozen or so times and can not find anything to complain about. It really is by far and away the best mid town hotel. Yes, The Setai does charge more than other hotels in the vicinity but you do get what you pay for, as the Asian proverb goes "if you pay peanuts you get monkeys". I can promise you there are no monkeys at The Setai.
