I'm not easily pleased when it comes to Hotels and restaurants and it's hard to find good hotels in NY. On my previous visit I stayed in a trendy hotel on east 27th and Maddison which was buzzy and fun but expensive and the rooms were dull with pretty basic facilities and a low level of comfort.
This trip I traveled with my wife and 18yr old daughter and we chose the Chandler from the reviews we read. We had an executive suite that comprised of two rooms with a door between the two. The living room area had a sofa bed that the staff made up each night. The rooms were comfortable, clean, nicely decorated and furnished. Both rooms had a tv. Both beds were comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was clean with Molton Brown products and had a shower that actually didn't soak the room.. top marks for that for sure! The windows in the rooms can be opened as well which we like because we can get some fresh air as hate airless modern rooms
All the staff were friendly and helpful with a good knowledge of the local area and always happy to help. There is tea and coffee available in the lobby 24hrs and it's decent. There's a quiet lounge area to sit and read or just relax in and a small restaurant for breakfast which is a bit pricey at $16 but there are plenty of choices of good cafes within five mins of the hotel anyway as this is New York and there's always a Starbucks within two blocks of anywhere ha ha.
This is not a hotel with a buzzy reception and lots going on but it's a well run, friendly boutique hotel in a quiet street with friendly helpful staff but we like quiet places and is a peaceful city centre retreat after a day walking the streets of a big noisy city. If you haven't been to NY before then this a great location in the centre of everything and is literally five mins walk to the empire state or Times Square. Give it a try!
