This is a great find and we will be returning.
The facilities are 3* but the friendliness and the quality of rooms are better than most 4*s we stay in.
When we say the facilities are 3* we mean that there's no bellhop, swimming pool or some of the other 4* periphery but this shouldn't put you off in any way if you want a good boutique style hotel.
As soon as we arrived we had a good impression, the girl on the desk was charming and welcoming - she put us in room 1402, a great corner room overlooking Rockefeller.
The room is smallish, but more than acceptable for a city centre location. Our bed had about 18" from one side and the foot to the floor to ceiling windows. I have a major issue with heights and was twitchy about this as we were on the 14th floor, but 30 mins later no probs.
What we really liked though was that about 40% of the available space was given over to the bathroom. A great and spacious shower with good lighting around a sink with plenty of room for 2 people to move around each other.
The only reason we haven't made this a 5* review is that the restaurant/bar in the basement isn't integrated into the hotel system - it should be!! Yes yes I appreciate that it's an autonomous business but the space is owned by the hotel and both parties would benefit hugely from this.
There's a lot of options in NYC, but we would go back here without hesitation.
