I am a very jaded business traveler, and if a place is clean and quiet I am usually happy. But this property is really a step up. Immaculate, new, and yes, quiet. Check in was very good, with really pleasant staff who worked to accommodate my wishes. I was a little worried about having a second floor overlooking 48th street but the new windows are magic and I barely heard anything. Also did not hear any other visitors. I had a king room which had a very comfy easy chair, desk, and kitchenette. The downside was that there was no room for a little table where two people could sit eating, only one chair at the desk.
Lots of nice small seating areas on the first floor for casual meetings.
Very strong internet signal, lots of hot water.
Nice exercise room with about six machines and some weights and apples.
The breakfast was top notch. Definitely a better than the ones you get at Hampton Inns, and better than most of the $16 buffets you pay for in Hiltons. Included turkey sausage and egg whites as options.
The location is six blocks from Grand Central terminal where you can get the 4,5,6,s or three blocks from the number 6 which I took downtown.
On Lexington ave at the corner are cheap but ok eating options. Also lots of upscale restaurants in the area.
