we recently stayed in a premium king for 5 nights here. The position is fantastic, Bryant Park subway is very close, and so is pretty much everything else! We chose the room, for the free wi-fi, the size was slightly larger than others and the position was brilliant. Close but not too close to Times Square. We had no problems at all with any noise, our room was spacious (for New York) 2 windows for light, a lovely spacious marble bathroom, great shower, radio with iphone/ipod charger built in. Lovely fittings and immaculate decor and an absolutely fabulous bed, so comfortable. Housekeeping was great, the lantern bar, is very dark and the girl a little sniffy we found, so that was a once only visit! It started well, with our room available as soon as we arrived late morning, after our flight a change of clothes and shower was very welcome and we still had practically a whole day to make the most of, we were hugely impressed by that. The concierge here are absolutely without doubt the best we have had in a long time, both Vanessa and Bill are amazing and were so helpful and accomodating. They saved us so much time and trouble, we put in our requests and by the time we returned all the hard work was done and any tickets were waiting for us or bookings made all done!. They really made our holiday exactly that, stress free no hassle, something we both really appreciated, with someone else making all the arrangements. I would have no hesitation recommending this lovely smaller hotel for a much more personal touch with lovely decor and a great ability to make their guests feel important and special rather than just numbers through the doors like so many other larger hotels do. You will not be disapointed I have stayed in AAA 5 diamond resorts that were not as good an experience as this stay.
