Stayed for a week in this hotel and we really enjoyed it. Comfortable, spacious rooms with a fully equipped kitchenette. But, being in the city we only used the refrigerator to keep our drinks cool. For morning coffee we crossed the street to the Green Cafe and at the Well Green Market at 1413 Avenue of the Americas (6th Avenue) you can compose your own lunch/diner if you don't want to go out and eat.
Public transport at Columbus Circle, on 6th Avenue and on 5th av/59 st will take you anywhere you want to go. Be sure to get a map!
Central Park: the first morning we woke up very early because of the jetlag and it is really fun to walk in Central Park at 6 am, watching the cyclist and joggers enter the park.
Walking distance of Times Square, Rockefeller Center, MoMA, Radio City Music Hall and more attractions, combined with a great room is the reason we really recommend AKA for a longer stay. It is not cheap, but great value for money.
And the always present and friendly doorman will kindly open the door when you enter or leave the hotel......;-)
