4 of us come to NY to see a rehearsal of La Sonnebelum at Lincoln Center and could easily walk there from our hotel. We had booked 3 Broadway shows and again either by Taxie or the #2 Subway made getting around to these easy as well. Now as to eateries the hotel desk were very helpful in pointing out places for breafast as well as dinner. One of our favorites that they advised was the Citrus grill.
Now on a return trip to NY we would give this hotel a try again.
