I was here for four nights and have nothing but praise for this property. The property is just a short walk to many NYC attractions. There are plenty of restaurants in the area and subway stops are convenient to the hotel. The room is larger than many others I have stayed in while in Manhattan. I had two adjoining rooms (did not connect) on 16th floor. One for my niece and her friend and the other shared by my mother and me. There are few suites on each floor as the property is tall and narrow. Our window had a nice street view and even though we heard street noise it was not as noisy as some other places I have stayed in the city. I never heard other guests though there were other suites occupied on the floor. I also did not experience any problems with the elevators until Saturday morning and even then the rush was only at breakfast. Four elevators serve the hotel so we never had much of a wait except going downstairs Saturday when several elevators stopped but were too full to admit us. The hotel was fully occupied for the weekend. Tuesday through Friday we had no problerm getting to breakfast and finding a table. Our group of four did not always eat at the same time or together and we all had no problems. We also found the food choices to be very nice. It varied on the days we were here--scrambled eggs were always available, but sometimes turkey canadian bacon, sausage or bacon. Sometimes a scramble and other times breakfast potatoes. Almost always french toast and pancakes, and waffle batter to make your own waffle. Oatmeal in crockpots, wide variety of cereals. Fruits varied by day, but in addition to the ever present apples and bananas were cut melon and berries. There were all sorts of pastries: muffins, sweet breads, croissants. There were english muffins, wheat bread, bagels of various types, yogurt, etc. There were hot teas and coffees. I can't imagine what more could be ordered that could be served in this sort of setting. Things were restocked regularly and the attendants were helpful. Therer are many rooms for sitting and eating. One has to explore a bit to find them all. I almost always snagged a table with a window view. There are also paper plates and bowls etc for taking food to your room. I greatly appreciated this as I did not have to juggle food as I have had to do in some other properties.
The room itself had a fridge, microwave and dishwasher with coffeepot and all sorts of equipment--cutting board, knives and utensils plus plates and serving bowls, etc. Perfect for grabbing food at one of the great markets for in-room dining.
The flat screen Tv tilts for viewing in bed or from sofa or from dining table. The small bathroom has a single sink, tub with shower. The water pressure and temperature was good. good lighting in bathroom.
If I had to complain about anything it might be that with such a long stay another trash can or a bit larger waste basket would have been handy. Otherwise the room had everything needed including an in-room safe and multiple lamps and wifi capability--free!
The staff was friendly.
In the same block to the right when exiting the hotel is a Jim Horton/sThe Soup Man spot with delicious soups and sandwiches. They also serve doughnuts and frozen yogurt and ice cream. Across the street in the opposite direction is a PAX foods with lots of healthy choices. If you get in late you may find that Gabby O'Hara's, an Irish pub just a half block down 39th is open--table service is fast and I recommend the burgers! One night we were tired and it was very late and they appeared to be the closest food service spot that was open. Food is served on the 3rd floor bar but they close rather early. The bar remains open later and the fare is somewhat limited, but certainly adequate for a meal.
We had a lunch in Bryant Park on our first day--great spot for sunshine and people watching with good food from the 'wich vendor.
It was an easy walk South to the Macy's at Herald Square or North and West to Times Square even for my 76 year old mom.
I have stayed at the Fairfields and Courtyards in this same area and hands-down the Residence Inn is my favorite. I look forward to my next trip!
