We rented a two bedroom apartment for our party of two couples and our primary disappointment was that it was not two bedrooms with on suite baths for both as we were led to believe. The master had unbelievable views of the Chrysler AND Empire State buildings!! See attached photos. The other bedroom and unattached bath were very comfortable but just not equal to the master. The kitchen was nicely equipped and living was comfortable with a nice flat screen and nice view to the south and of the Empire State. Very light and open layout. Modern fixtures, furniture and appliances, hard wood floors and tastefully decorated. The beds and linens were very comfy! The concierge staff was very friendly and accomodating but unfortunately not always competent. Their knowledge of the area was surprisingly inadequate. Of course that's why we rely on Trip Advisor exclusively for everything we do. There is a subway stop 1 block to the south and another 2 long blocks west. Macy's is two blocks west and restaurants and delis galore within 3-4 blocks. We were on the 23rd story and the elevators were efficient and readily available. Taxis are readily available on Park Ave for downtown trips and on Madison for uptown trips. We understood that a fitness center was available on site. When we inquired, we told it was currently under renovation like it was a short term recent event. When we pushed for an alternate choice, we were told that it might be possible to use a facilty across the street. After two days we were allowed access to a fitness club that we later found out they have a standing relationship with for the last two years. So if having a fitness center available is important to you, have them arrange access for you ahead of time to avoid the delay. Basically, they will eventually deliver on requests but it may take awhile. The staff answering our emails before we arrived are in the UK but are quite attentive to requests and questions. FYI they charge an international fee when you place charges on your card since they are abroad. Overall this apartment is amazing and awesome. Gives you a taste of what it's like yo live in the City!! Thanks for a wonderful experience!!
