I absolutely love this hotel. I've stayed in dozens of hotels in NYC and after staying here one night last week, this is my absolute favorite. Even over the Plaza. It's a gorgeous historic hotel in a trendy area near all sorts of great bars and restaurants. The service is top notch and unassuming. But the rooms are what really stand out and shine. I upgraded to a King room w/ bathtub and I honestly didn't want to leave my room! It was fantastic. Great space, charming details, amazing view, quiet and all around perfect. They had great small touches such as soft bed linens, wireless ipod speakers, free cookies, thick towels and bathrobes, and even bubble bath for the gigantic marble bath with a window view. I cannot wait to stay here again, it is definitely my hotel of choice now.
