I stayed here one night on business. I'm a NYC ex-pat so am familiar with the area. This place was very expensive, but every other lodging option I could find, including Mariott, Sheraton, and Holiday Inn in the neighborhood, were even more! So, considering how nice the place is, it's actually a great value. Because of the renovations, I was upgraded to an already renovated room, which although it had no view but the side of another building, was well appointed with giant flat screen TV, two very comfy double beds, beautiful wide plank dark wood flooring, dark marble and glass in the bathroom, with water pressure to spare. Everything was spanking clean.
They're still renovating, so if you plan on being on the premises during business hours that could be a hassle. I wasn't, so it wasn't an issue for me. The only real clues to this were the fact that the elevator wouldn't take you to the lobby (it's closed for reno, with the front desk set up on the ground floor), and the smell of fresh building materials in the room (not a wood smell, but, I don't know - stain, adhesive, grout, something), which wasn't great but wasn't terrible. I have an oversensitive sniffer and it didn't really bother me.
The staff was great. Extremely attentive, incredibly helpful, super friendly and pleasant. I had some food delivered, and I had stepped out before it arrived. When it arrived early, I was still out. The person at the front desk called me on my cell to let me know, but I missed it, so she was about to pay for it on my behalf when I finally turned up. Another staffer was actually roaming the premises looking for me. Sorry guys! Anyway, they don't go to these lengths in other hotels and that may be worth the high price.
I'm taking 1 star off just because of the renovation, and so people are aware that it's going on. Other than that, it's stellar.
