This hotel exceeded our expectations. We were a total of 3 (married couple and sister), and we got a one bedroom suite on a high floor. While not inexpensive, it was less than getting two rooms -- and we had more total space than you would have in two standard NYC hotel rooms, as well as a kitchen, dining room table, and balcony.
Highlights of living room:
comfy fold out sofa bed (mattress a bit hard)
dining room table with 6 chairs (!)
game table with two chairs
desk, hutch, two closets, coffee table, easy chair, HD flat screen TV
segregated kitchen area with wet bar, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher
"real" silverware, glasses, and dishes
plenty of storage and cabinets
windows can be opened
Bedroom and bathroom:
bathroom a bit small, but nicely appointed; Neutrogena toiletries
bedroom a bit bigger than standard size
comfy bed and pillows
plenty of drawers and close space
electric shoe shiner
Lots of little nice touches in this place.
slow elevators (one was out of service - so that should be temporary)
balcony door very hard to open and close -- I would guess this problem would not apply to every room
If you are facing 50th, you will get the usual street noises at night, even on a high floor (we were on 19). Few hotels in NYC are immune to that.
bell staff and doormen very nice and attentive
bathroom sink drained slowly -- we mentioned it, and it was fixed right away
Location is fantastic -- lots of good restaurants within walking distance
Don't miss going "Upstairs" for a drink (see photo)
This hotel has some very nice touches, and the service is excellent without being intrusive. This hotel should be considered by anyone who is travelling in a group of 3 or 4 as you will have more space, a kitchen, and other amenities for less than two rooms of similar quality. .
