“Unbelievable view!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

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!!

This is a great hotel to stay at. I rented a studio, which had a nice king bed, a couch and a full kitchen including a washer & dryer. The room was nice decorated and very comfortable. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful when I asked questions. The location is excellent, since it's centrally located, so you can walk anywhere you want to go.

Room Tip: A great room

I could recommend this kind of living to anyone planning a visit to New York. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The apartment is clean with nice furniture. We got upgraded to a two bedroom apartment with views to both directions from the apartment. (A12).
Location is very good, you can walk anywhere (almost) from this location.

My husband and I arrived last month for a weeks stay. We stayed on the 6th floor and our 1 bedroom was fantastic. We felt it was a home away from home so that we could shop (Fairways was not too far) for food and prepare exactly what we liked, when we liked, dressed as we liked. As Australians, we find a lot of American food nutritionally lacking. The location was so convenient eg. walked to Maceys, Time Square etc.and close to the Green subway line. We have shared this place with family and friends for future reference as well as our travel agent. We could not recommend it more highly. Strange as it may seem, we were also delighted that we had a washer & dryer so that important travel and exploring time was not spent doing laundry and we got to bring most of our clothes home clean.

Ok, first things first. If you like the bells and whistles of a hotel, like daily maid service and turndown service with chocolates, etc., this may not be for you. However, after many hotel stays in the city I was blown away by this apartment.

Apartment - amazing!
We got upgraded to a two bedroom, two bathroom unit. It was immaculately clean, with stunning views of the Empire State Building from the lounge, and the Chrysler Building from the main bedroom. It was amazing! So spacious, with lovely furnishing, comfortable beds, and the ability to make our own breakfasts and do our own laundry in the washer and dryer in the apartment.
We extended our stay by three days as it was so brilliant to have the apartment as our base to go back to throughout the day.

Location - fabulous
And the location! You could almost touch the Empire State Building as you are so close. Macy's was visible from the window and Lord and Taylor (much better than Macy's IMO) was around the corner. Perfect for shopping, perfect for relaxing, perfect for sightseeing.

Price - about right
The price compares to a deluxe hotel, but I think it offers much more value with the space and ability to properly feel at home. We will definitely return. And I have not said that about any of the other hotels we stayed at in NYC.

Recommendation - YES YES YES

Room Tip: Request a high floor for the best views.

Booked this apartment through our vacation club for one week. Phenomenal value! We stayed for one week in April and were upgraded to a two-bedroom. The full kitchen was a lifesaver and I loved having a washer/dryer. The apartment had everything you could need - full-sized coffee maker, dishes, glassware, cookware, DVD player, hangers, an iron, and an ice-maker. The location is great - right down the street from the Empire State Building and Macy's. Subway entrances are convenient as well as bus stops, but do not rely on being able to snag a taxi. My one complaint would be that the air-conditioning was spotty and very loud - but we did not need it very much for our April visit.
