This hotel tends to be my hotel of choice when in New York on business .Most of my meetings tend to be in Midtown so the location is great with virtually everywhere I want being within a 10 minute walk .Also good at night with a very good range of restaurants within 5 minutes-from a simple bowl of pasta when arriving jet lagged to Booby Vans steak house round the corner on Sixth Ave .
I supposedly had a Superior Room on the 18th floor which was a bit on the compact side but the 2 main benefits of it were the extremely comfortable bed and the total lack of street noise which i find quite rare in NYC hotels and a great bonus
I never bother eating in the hotel mainly because at breakfast I don't want to start the day with a huge American breakfast (and inability to control my own greed ! ) so i alway just grab a tea and bagel from the cafe over the road and take it back to the room .At night I prefer to leave the confines of the hotel .I find the bar a bit boring and soulless -ok for meeting up before going out but I wouldn't want to spend the night there .
I have always found the concierge desk very helpful particularly with restaurant tip .
The only drawback is the somewhat grating French (do I really want bonjour in New York ) but that's probably my Britness coming out !
