My family (myself, my wife and 4 children) just spent a nice 3 days at the Bryant Park Hotel following Christmas. With a traveling party of that size it is not easy to find NYC hotels as accommodating as the Bryant Park was in making the stay work with 2 connecting rooms during a holiday. Patrick in direct reservations went out of his way to get this done and he should be commended for his efforts. We have stayed at a lot of high end properties in NYC and none have handled it with more ease and flexibility than the Bryant Park Hotel. From John and Eric greeting us at the door and getting our bags to the rooms to Jennifer at the concierge desk making sure all our unrealistic dinner plans were satisfied, the staff at the hotel are top notch. As an added bonus, the shower and water pressure is excellent. My kids fought to get into the shower! This is a quality hotel.
