We stayed for a week on 36th floor facing north and had great views room was good with 3 adults in a jr suite start with a tour of the room by Alex who told us of great places to eat and to see close to the hotel. We did not know the Empire State was just up 34th street. Steph and Simone in the front were very helpful with directions and nothing was to hard. Used the hotel bike for a ride thru the streets and Central Park which was fun. Time Sq and Central Park were very close so we walked to most locations taxi to uptown or downtown was about 10 dollars so when walking got to much we took a cab.
