Let me start by saying, "We don't cut corners on anything", otherwise, we just stay home. When traveling, we want to be pampered and feel special. That is why when we travel, we always book 5 Star Hotels. This past week we were meeting my daughter in NYC, to take in the St. Patrick's Day Parade and enjoy another NYC experience. However, my daughter did not want to spend the usual $400-$500 a night, in NYC, and, in this recession, who could blame her. I searched Trip Advisor...I will NEVER travel anywhere, unless I check Trip Advisor, and search the reviews and photographs. I found good reviews for the Hotel Chandler. The rate was $189.00 per night!. I was quite skeptical, and did not want to stay at this hotel. Based on the price alone...I was very uncomfortable, to say the least. But, in lieu of my daughter's request, decided to take the chance, and we booked the Chandler Hotel for two nights. All my fears were disolved when we arrived at the hotel. GREAT! is all I can say. Really GREAT! Beautiful Contemporary Hotel. I was really surprised...There ARE lovley hotels in the city at reasonable prices. The staff could not be nicer. They were very accommodating and congenial. Valet parking, to boot! The photographs on-line, are EXACTLY the same in person. The hotel is a trendy contemporary, with nice woods and marble accents... they did not cut corners anywhere in this hotel. A lovley wrought Iron Staircase, for those who choose to take the stairs, marble public restrooms with choice toiletries, and a smart dining room. "They did not skimp on the decor, either". The Bedrooms were lovely, not large (12x16), but well appointed, extremely clean and well maintained. A VERY comfortable bed with down pillows and comforters, and chocolates on the pillows at turn-down. Dark wood cabinetry and silk draperies. Very nicely done. The bathroom was not large, but a nice size, and the shower with ceiling rainshower ...nice touch. They also provided plush bathrobes and slippers, internet, and flat screen TV, and room service!. Surprisingly, the hotel was quiet. The hallways and elevators were well kept and nicely appointed. I've heard people say "When you travel, and are on the go, a beautiful, expensive room is wasted, as you are not in it long enough to enjoy it". I disagree completely. I want to feel great when I step in the room. "Travel, is a total experience, from the moment you leave your home, until the moment you arrive at your destination. I will definately return to the Hotel Chandler. I feel this is a 4 1/2+ plus hotel. Thanks again, to Trip Advisor!
