I've always stayed in huge hotels in New York (the W, Waldorf Astoria, Paramount etc) so wasn't sure what to expect from a 'boutique' hotel in the USA's largest urban sprawl...
I was hooked from the minute I arrived. The hotel is beautifully designed - like a dark, sexy, mysterious play-den in the heart of Manhattan.
Amazing decor, spacious rooms (by NYC standards at least), great facilities, huge roof terrace, beautiful bars and impeccable service made my trip.
The mini-bar in each room is amazing. Described as an 'English Drinks Cabinet', it is a full bar with large bottles of spirits, wines, Champagnes and mixers accompanies by nuts, snacks, crisps, chocolate, candy etc. Definitely a hotel to be naughty in ;-)
