Although the address was listed incorrectly on Google maps, once we arrived there from our walk from Penn Station we couldn't have been happier. We were on teh sixth floor in the 600.001 advertising. This was quite fitting since I have been overally obsessed with Mad Men. It was filled with advertising books including ad books from the 1960's. Perfect!
We stayed for Wilde Weekend which included a hard cover picture of dorian gray book, breakfast each mornin, two signature drinks at the rooftop bar and chocolates upon arrival. The rooms was cozy , but nice. The bathroom was also small but fine. Robes and slippers and music playing upon our arrival which I love!
The breakfast was a wonderful continiental with any type of coffee imaginable! Fresh bagels and pastries, fruit, etc.
The rooftop bar is wonderful. Bartenders and servers were super friendly. Front desk staff was very helpful as well! I recommend the Hemmingway at the bar. Delicious!
The hotel is on a busy corner and the room was a bit noisy at night and early morning while trying to sleep. A higher floor might have made a difference.
Overall we loved this place and hope to make it back soon and to try another of their properties. Perfect stay!
