We recently stayed at the Tuscany, only having read prior reviews. It is in a great location (E. 39th St.), and because it is not on a main Avenue, it was quiet. All of the staff was friendly and attentive. They seemed truly interested making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The coffee shop had a full breakfast, but you could also just have something light, like pastry, muffins, etc. At night, it turned into an intimate bar where you could have a quiet drink. The beds were comfortable and the bath had all the amenities you could want. The fitness room was bigger than most small hotels with a few treadmills, several elliptical machines and bikes, as well as weights, leg machines, etc. The only suggestion we had was to put a coffee maker in the room and a light on the desk. The hotel is still undergoing remodeling, but our room was comfortable and clean. We would definitely go back.
