My daughter and I shared a Mom/Daughter weekend in the City July 26-28th of this year. I looked at the reviews here and chose the Blue Moon Hotel, as we wanted something "Different". It was different, alright.....instead of bland, office style decor we got beautiful, charming rooms with a combo of antique furniture and really comfy bed/couch. Instead of bored, inattentive or rude reception staff we got Louise who we dubbed the "Angel of Hospitality". Talking and joking with Louise was like hanging out with my sisters! She was funny, well-informed, happy to help with anything. Louise made our weekend! I have never had hotel staff who I couldn't wait to chat with when I got in :-) Breakfast in the lobby was coffee, pastries, incredible bagels and all FREE.
This, in NYC during the peak summer season. I have travelled all over the world and stayed in some of the most highly rated hotels such as Taj and Ritz Carlton. You can keep them, just give me the Blue Moon and Louise!
