This five-star hotel has the best staff in the city and a great location in midtown near Central Park. The lobby and common areas are beautiful, and a new restaurant will be opening soon. We stayed in a "deluxe"-level room on the 11th floor. As everyone else has commented, the linens, towels, pillows, and amenities are all first class, and the in-room technology (remote controlled curtains, lights, etc.) was also excellent. We had no problems with noise from the street or adjacent rooms. The bathroom was particularly nice with beautiful tile, a rain-style shower, and bath products from Fresh.
My main concern with the hotel is that the photos posted online are currently not accurate, perhaps because the website is still new and evolving. Our deluxe room was much smaller than we expected, and considerably smaller than the photo for the cheaper "superior"-level room currently posted online. There was no entry or foyer in our room; the door opened directly into the bedroom less than five feet from the corner of the bed. Fortunately the bathroom was a decent size, but the bedroom was too small to be comfortable for the two of us.
If we returned, we'd try to book a "premier" room which is still a bit smaller than the lowest category room in other similar quality hotels (e.g., the Trump Soho), or we'd splurge on a suite. But in my opinion, the great staff more than makes up for the small rooms.
