Stayed there in November 2013 and was lucky enough to get one of the only 3 room with a terrace with a view on the 5th avenue (room 1103). Though a bit expensive, the complementary services of this hotel is just stunning :
1. Room bar for free (though no alcohol),
2. a luxury car can pick you from hotel to any place in manhattan (Maserati Quatro Porte) based on first in first served.
3. free laundry for 5 item (though I didn't try)
4. Free newspaper
Room was big and very confortable. Heating in the bathroom was fast and efficient.
Spa area is good with Sauna, haman and "swimming pool" that is in fact a big jacuzi. One cannot swim in it. It's costing 50$ per day but steam bath is very well done and I strongly recommend to relax a couple of hours there.
on the minus(or less plus)
1. I tried both the continental breakfast on ground floor and "à la carte" on the first floor restaurant. Ok breakfast but nothing impressive, except the price maybe, very expensive (((
2. The restaurant is a one star Michelin but probably on American standard. Food was ok but nothing compared to a french one star Restaurant. Food was served very quickly (starter+main course. a small bottle of wine expedited in 43 minutes), waiters, though very friendly, were also a bit noisy.
But still, I'll be back there.
A big plus to the reception, Valet guys and concierge that ensure that my short stay could be optimized and thanks to the driver of the Maserati who was a perfect gentlemen that fit 100% with the car.
