Just couldn't have chosen a more perfect hotel to spend few days Xmas shopping! On arrival greeted by helpful, friendly doorman and receptionist. Shown to our room which was a Junior Suite with king bed which was comfy and quite luxurious. The 2nd floor Reading Room (looks like mini library hence the name)provides 24 hr tea/coffee facilitites with complimentary fruit and pastries is fantastic but better still it also offers complimentary wine and nibbles from 5pm to 8pm. In the evening venture up to the 14th floor to Bookmarks Lounge which is a lovely cosy Manhattan rooftop bar. The on-site restaurant, Madison & Vine Restaurant, serves great food. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION.....definitely this hotel offers you that as it is located near Bryant Park, Grand Central Station and of course the New York Public Library which is definitely worth a visit. Obviously, The Rockefeller Centre is a must visit and go to the Top of the Rock Observation Desk. Then we had lunch in the Rock cafe where the steaks are amazing. We got fabulous table where we were able to watch Santa joining in with the ice skaters who were all in festive mood. As Boutique Hotels go this is in a league of its own. Will definitely be returning and also feel confident recommending....try it!
