The hotel is new and the rooms are well thought-out, very Euro-style. There's plenty of room for two people and their gear in the queen bed room. The hotel is small and I could walk up the stairs to my room. On the second floor is free coffee, very good beans that are ground for each cup, and a nice lounge area. The location is perfect, at Rockefeller Plaza, many subway lines all around. Central Park is a 6 minute jog (10 minute walk). Price was very good, around $260 +/- a night. My room was in the rear and was exceptionally quiet.
