For the price, I think this is a good in-between hotel. Meaning, it's not the Mercer or the Four Seasons obviously. But, much more interesting and swanky than a Marriott. Feels like a W with some historical architecture. The location is great for walking and subway access. Staff was friendly and helpful. We had only two short waits for the infamously slow elevator, but nothing horrible. The bathroom is seriously lacking in practicality of design. Air conditioner worked well and wasn't too loud. Beds were comfortable and the view from our room was fabulous of Lincoln Center. You can hear noisy people in the hall, but typical of a building this age.
