My first trip to New York City was amazing partly due to the recommendations from many of the staff members at this caring hotel. The room itself was quietly elegant, good sized and clean with comfort and solitude. Staying on the 18th floor gave me great views of the city and kept the outdoor street noise to a minimum. A complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates awaited me and the hotel offered daily wine tastings in the lobby. I recommend this place and wanted to personally thank Preston at the front desk for his assistance and genuine kindness.
